DAVE SAG’S BLUES PARTY WITH SPECIAL GUEST: Brian David Templeton, William Loosigian & Dave Mattacks @ The Rhumb Line 8:30 to 11:30

dave sag rl mo

 

It’s He-Man Week™ as I drag in the limb-crunching behemoth of the blues: Mr. Brian Templeton. Last time he was here, severe shock and awe erupted on the dance floor and mere mortals (not you) quivered with trepidation at what might happen to their booty whilst under his spell. He’s a really big guy, physically and tonally. Makes me look like Barney Fife. He’s really a great frontman, singer and harpist,and a joy to work with. He’s bringing along Mr. Billy Loosigian, rocket-propelled guitarist and veteran of many an ear-exploding night on this same stage.He’ll be the one in the red cape. Range-finding co-ordinates supplied by the atomic clock, Mr. Dave Mattacks. I’ll be on base. hours: 8:30 till11:30, and, no, we’re not changing them anymore for the winter.

Dennis Brennan this Thursday night @ The Dave Sag’s Blues Party…The Rhumb Line 8:30pm 10.16.2014

dave sag rl 4.3.2014

 

OK, kids, time to put your vibrating font of perpetual solipsism* away and pay attention to this: Dennis Brennan is coming to town.Yes, yes, when it comes to naked emotions it helps to have D around to befriend our eardrums and try to make a whole lotta sense with our paltry lives. Possibly the area’s most important raw mineral. And he’s breaking it up a little bit by using some other cats than we’re used to hearing.
Firstly, there’s Steve Sadler ,gourmand guitarist and everybody’s favorite studio cat. Knows Dennis’ every move from other gigs. And Forrest “Frosty” Padgett, who’s a big fave around here, on the eggbeaters. And me, too. I’m Dave Sag, and I approve this message.

From 1 to 3, we’ll be playing all your favorite tin pan alley toons for the prune juice and joint replacement crowd. Join us for some great cane-tapping fun!

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.

Cheryl Arena plays the Thursday Night Blues Party @ The Rhumb Line 8:30-11:30 August 21st.

dave sag rl 4.3.2014

 

It’s a pleasure to have back that rascal of the blues: Ms. Cheryl Arena. A great vocalist and harpist, she’s sure to have you shakin’ your tootsies all over the dance floor. We weren’t sure she was gonna make it, since she accidentally overdosed on Polish Fly last week and nearly broke her arm bowling. However, rest assured, all is well in bloozeland and we got the band to prove it. She’s bringing along Pete Henderson on guitar. Pete’s a real treasure and hasn’t been here in a long time. He’s killer! Forrest Padgett handles eggbeater duties, and I, Salmon Dave Sag provide cosmic relief.

And Friday night I’ll be down to Guiseppe’s eating pizza with Orville Giddings and who knows who else. But I think Marque Earley and Steve Chaggaris are the great unknowns. We’re gonna have a 120 volt contest, see who can last the longest. Free sparring partner for any of you over the age of 50! Seeya there!

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!
