Dave says,

Tighten up your asteroid belt this Thursday as we blast off with the espied piper on the tenor sax: Mr. Gordon “Sax” Beadle. Everybody’s favorite! Just released from MGH where frantic doctors worked slavishly to relieve his screech defect , Big G. is being served piping hot for your musical edification. Not only that, but “Mr.” Edd “Duato” Scheer, on drums, will be joining us, too. What a night! We’re also dragging in Mr. Mike DiBari, kicking and screaming, on gootar, for that new car smell. We all sing, dance and play and will be cracking up all night long.You won’t get a chance to see anything like it again for many months!

We have a bit of rock/pop culture history with us this week
at the Rhumb Line.  After a 4-year absence, Andy Pratt finally
returns as musical guest.  A very special night.  I sincerely
hope no one misses it! ~ Fly

Wikipedia: Andy Pratt (born January 25, 1947) is an American
rock music singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. In the
1970s, he made a number of experimental records and scored a
commercial hit with “Avenging Annie”.  After words of praise
from Rolling Stone magazine (“By reviving the dream of rock
as an art and then re-inventing it, Pratt has forever changed the
face of rock”), he tried a more commercial approach.  Pratt
converted to Christianity in the late 1970s and continued to
make records and perform at big Christian pop music festivals.
Pratt has released over twenty studio albums as of April 2012.

Check out the details of this awesome idea here:

Lisa Marie This Thursday @ The Dave Sag’s Blues Party 8:30-11:30pm 11.13.2014

dave s

It’s gonna be another knuckle-draggin’ night so let’s  welcome back one of your all-time favorite singers: Ms. Lisa Marie. She’s comin’ at you with her glass-breaking jewel-encrusted uvula. She rocks, she rolls, she twists, she monkeys to that grisly thump we all think of as our heart, and finds a way to touch us all. Pass the Jameson, please….
And she’s bringing an action- packed riddim section for that pedal to the metal feel. First, there’s Mr. Silvertone Steve, fleet-fingered guitarist and online carbon-dating service entrepreneur for you oldsters.Makes a mockery out of pre-existing conditions. Then there’s Mr. Johnny Juxo, pinky -waggler Xtroidinaire on shoe-bashing keyboards. Sings like an angel. Wears great hats, too. Top it off with with the air-compressor stylings of that  hirsutely magnificent drummbler, Mr. Steevee Chaggaris and my unique style of basso offendo and there you have it; a great night! Ask your doctor if the DaveSag Blues Party is right for you.

Rhythm, Funk N’ Blues Fest Beverly, MA. At 8pm on Saturday, November 22nd, M.E. Productions presents a triple bill of funk and R&B acts at the historic Larcom Theatre.

Get on over the bridge. It’s gonna be a good one!

Henley-Douglas RnB stands above the pack as the funk band to keep your eye on. The Delta Generators are known as one of the most original Rhythm and Blues band on the Boston Scene.  And a handful of special guests will make appearances including Eric Reardon, Sarah Seminski of Big Ol’ Dirty Bucket, Garret Savluk of The Boston Horns, and Yahuba Torres of The Ryan Montbleau Band.  Tickets for this concert start at $19.

Salem native Henley Douglas, master sax-man co-fronts HDRnB (Henley-Douglas Rhythm and Blues) with soulful vocalist Douglas Gimbel .  An original R&B/soul/groove band that performs nationwide and always delivers the mega-funk, this 6 piece ensemble blows the doors off any venue with sax and trombone, backed with fine percussion and strings. Big sound and funky grooves.  The word is out- HDRnB will keep you movin’ all night.

Henley tapped another Salem native and fixture of the local music scene, Eric Reardon to heat things up with his stinging guitar licks that have been lauded by regional music giants like James Montgomery and the late great Johnny Winter.   Reardon will be performing with Boston’s Sarah ‘Lil Shrimp’ Seminski, lead vocalist of the funk outfit Big Ol’ Dirty Bucket who will belt out some classic funk/Soul and modern Hip Hop/R&B with her powerful pipes.

That would be a hot show right there.   But hold the phone, there’s a third act on the bill.

 

deltagenerators_418web

 

The Delta Generators are going to play their only show this Fall on the same night.  If you’ve seen the Generators, you know. If not, they are one of the most original, funky, soulful Rhythm & Blues bands Beantown has birthed in a long time. Deeply rooted in Delta and North Mississippi blues, while throwing in elements of rock, funk, soul and rootsy Americana, local favorites the Delta Generators are a fine-tuned, well-oiled machine if ever there was one.

Bam!  Now that’s a show.   Noooooooo, these cats aren’t done yet.

Sprinkle on two very special guests to add flavor to this already smokin’ gumbo.   Puerto Rican conga king Yahuba Torres, known best as the percussion wizard in The Ryan Montbleau Band will add some jammy Latin rhythms.  Garret Savluk of The Boston Horns, and formerly of Heavy Metal Horns, will bring his bad-action trumpet sound to the night.

Garret A Savluk

 

Now that’s a festival (as the billing implies). Seth McNally, founder of M.E. Productions and promoter of the event adds, “The show will culminate with a stage jam of all the evening’s performers bringing together the biggest sound in funk, blues and soul you’ll hear this far north of the bayou.”

Henley Douglas adds with barely contained excitement, “This show is a reunion of myself, Garret Savluk and Craig Rawding (Delta Generators) of the Heavy Metal Horns. Craig was the lead vocalist for HMH and toured nationally with the band. Garret and I have toured throughout the US, Europe and Japan. Taking the stage with Garret Savluk who has had a big influence on my musical career for almost 25 years, will make this one of the best shows I’ve played this year. With Garret and Yahuba and Seminski playing this show, the music is going to be awesome!”

 

Tickets to see Rhythm, Funk & Blues Fest are $19, $29, and $35.  For tickets and more information visit http://www.larcomtheater.com or call  978-525-9093.

Dave Sag’s Blues Party to host The Earley Birds @ The Rhumb Line Tonight 8:30-11:30pm 11.6.2014

dave sag rl 4.3.2014

 

Get that file out and start sharpening your chainsaw in preparation for the arrival of “The Earley Birdz”. No, not the dentist drill of a saxist, but the other one: the Mississippi saxophonist and graveyard vocalist, the OTHER Mark Earley. A great singer, I have worked occasionally with him and love his vibe and choice of material.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt to drag in that fabulous guitarist : Mr. Larry Sortwell, late of the great band “Grapevine Road”, to whoop it up. And wait’ll you hear his creamy voice, smooth as baby’s feet. Mr. John Cameron, keyboard wizard and my personal food taster, is also making a rare appearance, what with being so busy making toys for xmas in his workshop. Round it out with Mr. John Loud, local boy made good, on eggbeaters, and you have a great night of cool toons. I’m really excited about this. Now, if I could just stop the voices in my head….

7 Central presents ~ The Dejas Saturday November 8, 2014 9-12 midnight

the dejas 7 central

 

I wanted to give you a heads-up about a great musical act performing at 7 Central this Saturday night from 9 to midnight.

The Dejas – a Salem-based duo – co-headlined the Blue Ocean Music Hall in Salisbury just a few weeks ago, have performed at Shalin Liu, House of Blues Boston and over the summer were featured in the 92.5 River Music Hall. They are regularly played on WUMB and 92.5 The River. You can check out a video below.This will be a great night of music – some exceptional originals and carefully curated covers.

I hope you’ll drop in and support this duo and give them a nice Manch-Vegas-by-the-Sea welcome. I’m very excited to have them come play. I have been speaking to them about doing so – literally for 2 and a half years – and this is the first time we have pulled it together.

Have a great weekend.
Chris

Help out while having fun. In light of this weeks terrible fire in Magnolia, Just Like Newman would like to ask friends to come to the Halloween party this Friday night with a couple of extra dollars or perhaps a gift card to Marshalls, Market Basket, CVS or another local business that we can donate to the victims of the fire. We’ll put out a bucket to collect everything and 100% will go directly to the victims… Don’t forget to wear your costume!

This Thursday Just Quinn joins the Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb Line 8:30-11:30pm 10.30.2014

dave s b wDave says,

Golly; a lot of harp players lately. Yet, I’ve saved the best for last, at least for this month. Let’s welcome back Justin Quinn and his rolling roadblock for an evening of pedal-to-the-mettle fuel-injected blues. The long time host of Glenn’s Cool Bar blues sessions in Nbpt. is hitchhiking down here to give you a whiff of the real deal blueswise, and it’s going to be terrific, or,at least, terrifying. I love playing with this guy!

justin-quinn

 

 

He’s bringing along Mr. Jon Ross, guitarist xtroidinaire, to mold the clay, and the ever so tonsorially-challenged drummbler, Mr. Steevee Chaggaris, to beat you to a pulp. It’s pre-Halloween, so nobody will notice if you dress funny. Not that they ever do. Bring a date and dance to the whites of her eyes!

Don’t miss our….-Giant costume contest with $100 CA$H prize for first place and a gift card for second place!

-Midnight Speghetti is getting the party started at 9 with LIVE music.

“Retro funk mob Midnight Spaghetti & The Chocolate G-Strings has been satisfying discriminating dancers with monster grooves since January 2003. Their blend of classic funk, conscious frenetic rap, a killer horn section, and a contagious enthusiasm for life left people wondering what planet they came from, but more importantly, how they could get on that mothership.

Keeping the old school party vibe of Digital Underground and Trouble Funk alive, Midnight Spaghetti takes the beat and runs with it in progressive directions. There are definite similarities to the contemporary genre-bending hip hop group Ozomatli, as well as the ruckus attitude of the early Red Hot Chili Peppers, but listen closely to the lyrics and you’ll find the brainy humor to be reminiscent of Frank Zappa.”
