New Live Henri Smith CD to be released at Celebrate Gloucester Aug 29

HenriPoster_600When Henri Smith brings New Orleans Friends & Flavours, featuring Grammy-winner Amadee Castenell to Cape Ann Marina’s Waterfront Pavilion on August 29, he’ll be helping to raise money for the Cape Ann YMCA — and he’ll release his new live CD recorded at The Larcom Theatre last March.

This will be Henri’s first live CD and it features stellar guests, including Grammy-winners Charles Neville and Amadee Castenell along with young, rising stars — all brought together by Henri Smith, one of the country’s premier band leaders.

Recorded and mixed by Bill Winn (whose award-winning credits include Whitney Houston and Herbie Hancock among many others), this CD is destined to become a classic — and you can get yours signed at the concert.

Henri Smith concerts have been selling out, so you probably shouldn’t procrastinate.

Get your tickets now (right here) and then you can relax the rest of the summer.

James Montgomery is bringing young rising stars to Gloucester on Aug 22 — and a surprise!

This is James’ first appearance in Gloucester on over 2 years and he won’t be back for a while — and you can’t see him with this lineup anywhere else.  So get tickets now (right here) before it’s too late.

Check out these videos of James and his guests and you’ll see why this is one summer concert you absolutely don’t want to miss!

Celebrate Gloucester Update: John Sebastian Concert Rescheduled

Due to a scheduling conflict, we have moved the Celebrate Gloucester Benefit Concert featuring John Sebastian to Saturday, September 13 at the UU Meetinghouse.  Get tickets here.

CG_2014_JohnSebastian

This is one more example of how things often work out despite my frustration when I found out about the conflict.  The UU Meetinghouse a fitting venue given that this concert helps raise money for its restoration and the acoustics are excellent.  But with no air conditioning, it wouldn’t have worked for an August concert.  However, it’s perfect for September when the average high is 72 and low is 55 (it might be a little chilly at 8pm on the water that time of year) and the cushioned pews are quite comfortable.

This concert is a perfect opportunity to experience the music that helped define a generation up close and personal.  Here’s a video of John Sebastian at Woodstock (45 years ago this August):

First, there’s Mr. Pete Henderson, a fine, water-cooled 50 caliber guitarist, to chase away your demons, then adding Mr. Joe Bargar, a relentless air hammer, on keys, and Ms. Kathy Berkley,drummbler, to chop some wood for ya. Of course,I’ll be on base. I haven’t had these cats up here for a long while, and  I’m really quivering with anticipation. It’ll be great night! 8:30 to 11:30 at the Rummie.

Dennis Brennan, Matt Stubbs and Forrest “Frosty” Padgett, Tonight @ The Dave Sag’s Blues Party 8:30-11:30 The Rhumb Line 7.17.2014

dave sDave says,

It’s a buzzer beater with my missive this time around: what with house guests and emergency cosmetic surgery, I simply don’t know where the time has gone. If you find it, send it back, postpaid, and I’ll buy you a cherry phosphate. So, let’s go!!
This Thursday at the Rhumb Line we feature that glottal gurgler and all-around nice guy, Mr. Dennis Brennan. A fabulous vocalist and harpist, you oughta see what he can do when I’m not around! He’s bringing along his fleet-fingered stunt double in the form of Mr. Matt Stubbs, on gootar, to add a lot of electrical spice, and Mr. Forrest “Frosty” Padgett to stir the pot.I’ll be on soup bone!

hee
And Sunday evening, from 5 to 8, I’ll  be down at the Brew Pub cringing whilst backing up a fabulous singer: Ms. Maureen Benson. Backed up by a bunch of the Old Salties, this portends to be a groovie evening of standards from the good old American Schlongbook. Come and say Hi!
And don’t forget Monday at the Rose Biker Senior Center,where the Good Old Salties rule from 1 to 3. C’mon down and get your pacemakers recharged!
