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.

Dinner with great music!

Show your love for Gloucester’s Rock Star, Jon Butcher, right down the road in Beverly tomorrow night

Rock stars just keep coming to Gloucester.  First it was T Max, publisher of The Noise, New England’s longest running music magazine.  (See a series of videos we shot promoting Gloucester’s music scene here.)

Then Jon Butcher moved to Gloucester and you could see him acoustic at Jalapenos, Rhumb Line and Shalin Liu.  Tomorrow, his band, The Jon Butcher Axis, releases their newest CD at a very special — and very much plugged in — CD Release Concert right down the road at Beverly’s Larcom Theatre.

In addition to music from his new CD, you’ll hear tunes from “Kiss the Sky”, a feature film directed by Norman Lang, produced by Bill Rosenthal (who will appear with the band tomorrow on keys) and starring Jon Butcher and Tara Buck Pierce (of HBO’s hit series “True Blood”).  Jon has been commissioned to score the film, which is shooting in Boston, New York, Miami, London and Reykjavik Iceland through mid-2015.  You can still get tickets here — and the best available seats are in the balcony here.  So bop on down the road to Beverly tomorrow and catch a true rock star up close and personal.  Here’s some stellar guitar work from his Larcom Theatre concert last April:

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.


mark early 2 harpcrl

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.

Miss Jon Butcher on the radio on Sunday? Listen to the podcast right here on GMG

In this excellent interview with host Aurelia Nelson on her North Shore 104.9FM show “Curtain Up”, Jon reveals secrets about his new CD, his new film project and his CD Release Concert on Saturday right down the road at Beverly’s Larcom Theatre.

Tickets still available here.

Best seats are in the Balcony here.

If you missed Jon Butcher this morning, catch him tonight

If you missed Gloucester’s Jon Butcher on Aurelia Nelson’s 104.9 radio show “Curtain Up” this morning, you can catch him on Carmelita’s Bay State Rock tonight at 11:30 on WAAF!  Plus you’ll hear brand new songs from his upcoming CD, which you can get SIGNED on Saturday when he debuts the music LIVE @ the Larcom, just down the road in Beverly (tix still available here).

Here’s a song you won’t likely hear tonight, but you WILL on Saturday:


Live tonight, Radio tomorrow: Gracie Curran LIVE with Victor Wainwrignt @ Larocm tonight & Jon Butcher on 104.9 tomorrow AM

Two great chances to connect with local stars — Tonight Boston Music Award nominee Gracie Curran and her hot band are live on stage with Blues Music Award winner Victor Wainwright and his smokin’ band from Savanna GA right down the road at Beverly’s Larcom Theatre.  Doors @ 7pm Concert @ 8.  Let’s show these two young, rising stars that a little rain & wind won’t stop us from having fun.  Good seats still left (especially in the balcony).  Get them here.

Then, tomorrow morning you can hear Gloucester’s own Jon Butcher on Aurelia Nelson’s North Shore 104.9 radio show Curtain Up at 9AM (don’t forget to set your clocks back or you’ll be listening in at 8am instead).  Jon will fill you in on his new CD, “Experienced!”, his film project “Kiss the Sky” and his concert at the Larcom Theatre next Saturday.  Tickets are selling fast, so you’d better get yours soon.  Get them here.

It’s the perfect weekend for an extra hour sleep.  You’re gonna need it with all this excitement!

Here’s a taste of these two stars:
