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.

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!

dave sag rl 4.3.2014

  It’s been a while so put away that greasy kid stuff and welcome back those charming rascals of Rhythm: Edd, Ricky and Mario.These guys fit like an old pair of smelly shoes!
Ricky “King” Russell has long been a palimpsest on the Boston scene, what with his searing  guitar and ironic vocals. What’s not to like? Then there’s Eddie Scheer, front man , emcee and Osphena® sales rep on drums and vocals,  Mario Perrett, saxist and former teen idol on sax and vocals. We always manage to tear the joint apart and put it back together for the next time. We all sing and harmonize, sometimes at the same time!  One of my all-time favorite outfits! Come see! Don’t forget: our hours are now 8:30 to 11:30.

Easily the best singer around, Mari brings an incredible amount of great energy to the stage and will have you rollicking in the aisles and spilling your beer all over your chinese shoes. Come dance the night away.
And for the Cheez-Whiz and jello crowd, don’t  forget next Monday afternoon at the Rose Baker Senior Center downtown, where the Old Salty Jazz Band holds sway from 1 to 3.  It’s free! These guys are a riot!

Dave Sag’s Thursday night blues party at the Rhumb Line to host Sax Gordon 8:30-11:30pm 6.4.2014

dave sag

This could be my highlight of the summer,so c’mon down to the Rummie and grin and barbaric to the likes of that Saxophone wizard: Mr. Gordon “Sax” Beadle.  Gordon bleu will have you rockin’ in the aisles with his drug resistant strain of infectious musical madness. This guy really scares me sometimes: he’s so up and away that I get the chills along with my shortness of pants.
He’s travelled the world with his take on rhythm and blooz, backed up everybody, and I’m so honored that he still finds time to come up here  and entertain us. Take your Wayfarin®!
And he’s bringing along one of the most sympathetic Qatarists I know in the guise of Mr. Mike DiBari. This Kat knows all the chords! Tintinnabulations provided by Broomful  drumbler Mr. Chris Rivelli. Me on base. Don’t miss it!

Dave Sag’s Blues Party to host Steve Sadler and Jimmy Scoppa tonight @ The Rhumb Line 5.29.2014

dave sag rl 4.3.2014

 


Dave says,

I am just wiped out from all the necessary machinations incurred oner the last weekend. Played music a lot and had to soak my aching body and head in a strong solution of Epsom Salts and Tito’s Vodka for two daze, just to get the banshees to wave a white flag. It helps to rub a little on the inside, too. Presently, I’m lucid enuf to egest this at you before the little people carry me away. At least, when I get Alzheimers,  I won’t remember that I forgot.
So, this Thursday  at the “newly renovated”* Rhumb Line, let’s welcome back Steve Sadler and Jimmy Scoppa. The commodious Steve S. has just returned from a successful campaign in Gaul, where jokes and sandwiches are divided in three parts.** No one knew enuf to clap. And Jimmy, late mechanic of T.H. and the Wreckage fame,  has got his scutum and pilum in fine shape for executing  masterful maneuvers against the enemy. These two guys will show you what it’s like to be an underrated glitar hero. Unbelievable! Can you say ooh-whee? Tintinnabulations supplied by the current hotshot  drummmbler of Broomful o’ Blooz, Mr. Chris Rivelli with myself on base. So launder your Spanx®, splash  on some Stetson© and join in on the fun!

*A countertop has been painted, and the lights have been turned off, making everybody look real good. See for yourself.
** just got done re-reading all of Woody Allen’s three old books. Maybe this is where I  stole everything. I was amazed at the similarities.

Dave says,

It’s a pleasure to have back those Saxophone rascals, the Razdan boys for another romp this Thursday nite. Last time around, we got snowed out. But it’s a go, now, and the A-Train Orchestra posse is back in town ready to poke you in the musical eye with their own brand of sizzling swing. There’s Dad, or Rikky, on  multiple contusions, son Alek right behind him on tenor and soprano saskatoon, aided by the capable  combo of Dan Whalen, on qatar, and Doc Vincent on  spin cycle. I’ll be on base, as usual. Hopefully some really slick dudes and their horns will show up to lubricate the proceedings. We shall see. Opening arguments at 8 pm. Bring your slide rule!

 We’re joining a musical health club this week and exercising our synapses with that top ‘o the heap pied piper and malarky master, Mr. Dennis Brennan. No relation to Walter. Big D has turned out to be a favorite around these parts, causing swooning women and male consternation. He comes fully equipped with a fabulous set of pipes, a harmonica, and a repertoire so vast as to inspire nosebleeds. My favorite singer!

Dennis Brennan

Dennis Brennan



He’ll be backed by an all-star cast featuring Mr. Matt “Dillon” Stubbs, on catarrh, and  Broomful ‘o Blues drumpeter, Mr. Chris “Craft” Rivelli, a veritable powerhouse of the Blues foundry system.  Both Matt and Chris have travelled the world incessantly and extensively, spreading the word with the likes of James Cottontail, or Jerry Porntoy, or Roomful or is it somebody else? I can’t remember. But you won’t forget the incessant carnal pounding of the boogie beat as you suck down that sixth beer…. It’s gonna be a blast.! See ya there!

This week Johnny Carwash joins The Dave Sag’s Thursday Night Blues Party! 8 – 11pm 1.30.2014

dave bw

Dave says,

First, let me thank you all for allowing me to present the good Old Salty Jazz Band last week.It was a huge success. People were weeping in the aisles. Took me two days to recover. I think i’ll do it again this summer.
Now, back to reality. This week is yet another shootout at the ofay corral as we feature two ghastly titans of instrumental guitar, Mr. Bobby Davis, old Johnny Carwash himself,

Bob Davis bw2 and Mr. Billy Loosigian. Last time Bobby was here, the cleanup crew were wailing and gnashing their dentures for a week. Tore the place apart. Billy has been practicing his three chords necessary for the attainment of bliss for some time now and will prove to be the perfect shiny mirror to Bob’s succinct style. Jeff Casper, the friendly drumbler, will be on hand to answer any questions. I won’t have any answers. This is going to be big fun.
Don’t forget winter hours: 8 to 11. You can get 10 to life if you’re not careful.

dave sags color

Thank god Chris “Stovall” Brown is coming in this Thursday nite: it’s been a while since I had to deflect a whole boatload of  invective, innuendo and out the other. Chris, besides being a fabulous guitarist ,uvula-waggler, and eidetic librarian  of all things recordable, is simply a joy to work with. Plus, he makes me laugh. You may wet your pants watching this guy sing  whilst playing his axe with his dentures. I’m always amazed. Eardrum duties by  our fallow-headed buddy, Mr. Steevee Chaggaris. I’m on base.We’re keeping this a trio so that we can flood the stage next week with the likes of the Good Old Salty Jazz Band. Sex after menopause? I can’t remember….
