Big Block Party Bash Celebrates End of Summer

Even after dark, the street is packed. Here is my neighbor Jalapenos Mexican Restaurant. Always busy and always tasty. All the restaurants serve late.

SATURDAY from 6-11, this year’s final Block Party features a stellar mix of entertainment, including The GHS Docksiders Big Band, a quintet of Boston jazz maestros and a variety of other talent on five outdoor stages PLUS The Brass Fed Horns (featuring Carlos Menezes, Jr., the hardest working musician on Cape Ann) roaming Main Street with Gloucester’s version of Little Italy at the West End (from THE CAVE to Washington).

COME OUT AND PARTY LIKE IT’S STILL SUMMER — ’cause it is!

We’re opening up the bomb bay this Thursday, to welcome back those spirited jokesters who may inflict moderate to severe Blooz damage to your soul. I’m talking about that fabulous glottal gurgler (and drummambulator) Mr. Edd Scheer. He’s draggin’ in his musical buddies, Mr. Ricky “King” Russell , on Qatar and vogelsang, and the modishly-styled cutie-pie of tenor sax,Mr. Mario Perrett. Everybody sings,sometimes together and in tune, and everybody gets a turn to embarrass himself and/or make bad jokes. Something to see. Czech it out.

And then, on Saturday, why not grab some extra chewing gum, lube up with Hai Karate® and join “Madhouse” for some fun and alcoholic madness at Captain Carlo’s. John Keegan© and his voracious ants are ready to crawl up your leg once again and make you dizzy on the dance floor. Come celebrate the end of summer(???)!
And don’t forget: for those of you in the prune juice and Cheez-Whiz® crowd, there’s always a great free show with the Good Old Salty Jazz Band this coming Monday at The Rose Baker Senior Center. From 1 to 3 these kats wail the greatest old toons in the world! It’s a national treasure! Shame on you for ignoring it!

I know this post will get me in trouble, but …

HarborLoopCrowdBank Gloucester’s Banking For The Community program is bigger than ever this year.  You get to vote ON-LINE (right here) for an organization to to win up to $5K!  Now, there are some excellent organizations on the list, but you can also check a box labeled “Other” and write one in yourself.  That’s what I did.  I voted for the Harbor Loop Concerts.  “Why?” Well, for a number of reasons this 30-year-old tradition almost fizzled this summer.  But due to the tireless efforts of organizer Bradley Royds, with a little help from Mayor Kirk and others at City Hall, they pulled it off — barely — and it was a wonderful summer of free music at Harbor Loop enjoyed by thousands of residents and visitors.  I’d like to see this concert series secure for next year and what better way than by awarding it the top Bank Gloucester prize.  Soooo …. if you agree, just go to https://www.bankgloucester.com/ballot, check the last box in the right hand column and write in “Harbor Loop Concerts” just like in the image below:

Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, John Sebastian, Plays Gloucester Tonight — has a rock star this big ever played Gloucester before?

When’s the last time a rock star this big played in Gloucester?  In fact, other than Billy Joel, who jumped on the piano a few times at the Studio many years ago, has any Rock & Roll Hall of Famer ever played Gloucester?  Has anyone else who played at Woodstock ever played Gloucester?  If you know these answers, please comment.

You can still get tickets (here) to tonight’s show at Gloucester’s UU Meetinghouse featuring Lovin’ Spoonful founder and writer of some of our generation’s most enduring #1 hits, like “Do You Believe In Magic?” “You Didn’t Have To Be So Nice.” “Daydream.” “Younger Girl.” “Did You Ever Have To Make Up Your Mind?” “Summer In The City.” “Rain On The Roof.” “Nashville Cats.” “Six O’Clock.” “Darling Be Home Soon.” “Younger Generation.”

After the show, John will hold a meet & greet and sign records, CDs, posters, Woodstock tickets … what ever memorabilia you bring — and you can get his new CD with David Grisman.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to experience music that defined a generation up close and personal!

Rock n Roll Hall of Famer John Sebastian comes to Gloucester Next Saturday 9/13

It’s not often that a rock star this big performs in downtown Gloucester.  Remember The Lovin’ Spoonful?

How about Woodstock, which was 45 years ago this August?

When John Sebastian performs next Saturday at Gloucester’s UU Meetinghouse, he won’t be wearing the tie-dye jacket he’s got on in this video, because it’s now on display at the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. He will, however, sing some of his most enduring #1 hits like “Do You Believe In Magic?”, “Daydream”, “Summer In The City” and “Welcome Back” the theme song from Welcome Back Kotter.

And he’ll tell some wonderful, fascinating stories rooted in the major role he played in the mid-’60s rock revolution.  Don’t miss this rare chance to experience music that defined a generation up close and personal.  Get your tickets now (right here).

Omigod….what an amazing weekend Labor Daze was. Lots o’ music and drunken dancing. Anybody who livered through it:  congratulations. The clinic is open at Addison-Gilbert and Sullivan for those of you who can’t stop crying. Now onto the zbig news.
Let’s welcome back Mr. Chris “Stovetop” Brown to our stage this Thursday. Winner of this years Hugh Beaumont Award for excellence in gum chewing, Mr..

But, seriously, folks, Chris is one of my personal favorites, as he can play guitar, sing and yuck it up with the best of them. Never a dull moment.
And we’re using a cool and totally new drummbler in the form of Mr. Chris Anzelone, a monster in his own right. Can’t wait! c’mon down and watch the fur fly!
