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.

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.

Dare I? Oh Why Not!


Halloween morning I dressed in jeans, a heavy long sleeve shirt with black and white stripes, a watch jacket, and outrageous pirate hat. All of these items came from Bananas, a vintage clothing store on Main Street. Captain Fred’s first adventure of the day was a medical appointment at Addison gilbert Hospital. As I got off the bus, I almost chickened out with the hat, but decided to just suck it in and go for it.

I got a lot of attention walking through the lobby, down the hall, and in the elevator. Everyone who passed by smiled, and most said “Happy Halloween” or “Trick or Treat.” Once on the fourth floor, oncology, I was greeted by a witch, and signed in by a Thing with blue hair. I had found kindred spirits on my favorite floor. Of course, we had to take a photo. Nurse Kristen is the witch on my right, and Myriah, of departmental administration, is the Thing on my left. Whether Witch or Thing, they are great people providing exceptional care to me and all of their patients.

Zombie Blowout and Costume Contest Halloween night @ The Rhumb Line with Just Like Newman ~ Friday at 8:30pm – 12:30am

just like newman h



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!




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!
