First, there’s Mr. Pete Henderson, a fine, water-cooled 50 caliber guitarist, to chase away your demons, then adding Mr. Joe Bargar, a relentless air hammer, on keys, and Ms. Kathy Berkley,drummbler, to chop some wood for ya. 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 sag rl 4.3.2014

Dave says,

We’re opening up the bomb bay with a vengeance this week to keep your summer at a frantic pace. First, this Thursday, let’s welcome back honorary Gloucester resident and New Orleans native, Mr. John Rankin.This guy has spent most of his life playing music and teaching at some of the most prestigious drinking schools in the City That Care Forgot: i.e. Tulane, UNO, Loyola and Parchman Farm. This hoodoo hoodlum will be showing up with his muddy boots and eleven foot sack to show you what it really like to suffer permanent  brain damage. He got the gris gris and the mojo clubfoot to prove it. Also, he’s my best friend who knows me well and still likes me. Go figure.
Filling out this glowing gasbag of a gig will be that amazing artificer of the honkophonium: Mr. Marque Earley,on tenor and barium sax, and local boy Mr. John Loud, on the eggbeaters. This will be the zenith of interspecies communication! Rhumb Line hours:8:30 to 11:30.

A special treat for you this week as I welcome back Johnny Carwash: Mr. Bobby Davis. Long a staple in the gloucester  scene, Bob’ll have you rollicking in your Snapjax , pedal to the metal,playing your favorite instrumental hits long made popular on your Zenith® stereophonic hi-fi system. Not only that, but he’s bringing along a Gloucester legend in the form of Mr.Jason Chamberlain . This cat was around in the beginning and I’ve heard about him for years. I’m so happy to have him join us. His old band The Galaxies was the biggest thing around these parts many years ago, and I know there’s a lot of folks who remember him. Something new and different! David “Doc” Vincent  will be  tapping the skins and I’ll be on base. Get out the poodle skirts and the Brylcreem®! Seeya there!

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.

Dave Sag’s Blues Party . Mike O’Connell . George McCann . Benny Benson . The Rhumb Line. Thursday 8-11 March 27, 2014

Hold on to your hats!

Dave says,

Mikey, long known as a silver-tongued crooner and water-slide glitarist, wrecked the joint last time around. We’re aiming for a repeat performance as he drags in his long time buddy George McCann, on Qatar, kicking and screaming. Seems these two cats had a hot band once, but now are satisfied feeding me kielbasa and listening to my bad jokes. Even Benny Benson, our Irish Ace of Pace and agitator par excellance is motivated to skim the froth and get down to the nitty gritty. So, come early and stay late. Bring a date and dine by the whites of her eyes!

We’re gonna throw you another curveball this week and present to you a swinging night of country music featuring the Depot Cafe All-Stars. Led by the inimitable J.B. Amero, who needs no introduction and who has never eaten  broccoli in his entire life.  Manly! This will be his first time leading us blues type guys by the nose. He’ll have you crying in your beer with his buttery, plaintive versions of the Great American Country Schongbook. He’s lassoed the great Dave Brown and David Mattacks to help with the proceedings. We’re gonna be spitting Metamucil between our teeth all night long. There’ll be a contest for the best mullet in town. You’ll be drinking through the straw that broke the camel’s back!

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!

It’s a double whammy for me this week as I get to do the do with Mr. Justin Quinn twice! That’s right, he’s my special guest this Thursday nite at  the Rhumby and I get to do it again on Sunday at Glenn’s in Nbpt.  Mr. Q. or “Sonny Boy III” as I refer to him is  the logical extension of both Mississippi saxophonists I and II schmeared with a heavy dollop of Li’l Walter thrown in with some Jameson’s Irate Whiskey for good measure. He sings, too, whilst allowing his sidemen to vent, like Vesuvius,  to the boogie beat. Beware of microbursts!

justin quinn
Sidemen include Mr. Jon Ross, Klonopin® King and razor-like Samurai, on catarrh and vocals, the calvous Mr. Paul Foss of Bangor, Me. , an old prison cellmate, on keyboards, Mr. Ephraim Lowell, late of Broomful of Blooze, on tintinabulators and me on base . You’ll wonder where the yellow went, when you brush your fate with Blooze-o-dent. Hours: 8 to 11.

Sunday at Glenn’s you can behave, since we start at 6pm (and go till 9), but I don’t recommend it as there will be great wailing and gnashing of teeth, or implants and veneers, since this is Nbpt. The food is great but the women are snobby, so stay home, guys, unless you have a portfolio!  When you clock this town with the stopwatch of history, it’s a different record every time.
Also, for those of you who are out of the job market, The good Old Salty Jazz Band holds sway next Monday at the Rose Baker (who is she?) Senior Center here in downtown Glou. from 1 to 3, next Monday, nap time for most of you. You could bring Jell-O or Wayfarin© Come dance to the urgent hits of the 1920′s to the 1940′s with the coolest musicians in the world. We’re concussion free and a few of us still have hair!!  BaDoom!

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.
