Blues Fest Tickets are worth it just to see Victor Wainwright

Just in case you’re one of those people who thinks blues is a bunch of old folks singing sad songs, you’ve got to check out young rising star, Victor Wainwright, who will have you dancin’ on the grass at Stage Fort Park on August 9.  Just 2 weeks left to save $12 on your Gloucester Blues Festival Tickets (get them here).

Local Star Chelsea Berry on Curtain Up Tomorrow (SUN) @ 9am 104.9FM

Following her trend of interviewing local and national rock stars, Aurelia Nelson is hosting Chelsea Berry on her “Curtain Up” show tomorrow (Sunday) at 9am on North Shore 104.9FM.

Chelsea is back from a her national tour and will be performing Friday (7/25) at Cape Ann Marina’s Waterfront Pavilion (the BIG tent).  There are still seats available and you can get tickets here.

We know we live in a very special music community when someone who made her name in Gloucester comes back from a national tour and remembers where she got her start by appearing on local radio and performing in local venues.

Aren’t you glad you live here?

Just in case you don’t know who Chelsea Berry is, check out this video of her at Shalin Liu:

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!

We all know this area has a ton of music talent, and SOUL REBEL PROJECT is among the best. If you love true Roots Reggae, then you already know these guys well. If you’ve never had the chance to see them live, start kicking yourself now. After you recover, go to SoulRebelProject.com and see where the next big show will be. Ok, I love these guys for many reasons, one being that they are professionals at what they do, and then there’s the fact that they’ve become good friends, and they just keep getting better every year. Today just so happens to be the iTunes album release date for HIGHER PLACE (on VP Records), and the release of their first video KING. I shot and cut this video for the guys from a live show I taped this past spring. We never intended on making any particular video that night, just grabbing some footage, but here you have it. So watch the video, please share the link, then go check out the tracks on iTunes, you will become a fan instantly. Enjoy!!! (remember click the gear at bottom right for 1080hd)
