History Behind HENSC Fest!

Mark Hennessy performed his final concert on the Cape Cod Beer stage in April of 2022 before he lost his battle with Multiple Myeloma. Mark Hennessy was an extremely talented musician who played in numerous bands all over the Cape and became a local legend when he formed his band the Cape Cod Slackers. Mark lived his life doing what he loved – playing music for his fans. The Mark Hennessy Foundation continues Mark’s legacy by bringing awareness and providing support to the musically talented children, students & musicians within the Cape Cod Community and beyond. HENSC Fest is one of many fundraising events to raise money in Mark’s honor.
