From Dave Sag-

We’re back! After a two week hiatus we’re hopped up and rarin’ to go, musically speaking, so on with the fun!
At the Rhumb Line this Thursday we’re proud to present Mr. Brad Foucher, gootarist xtroidinaire and phlegmish vogalist. Brad just finished a five year jolt in Cedar Junction for breaking Ohm’s Law and we’re glad to have him back. Lock your car.
Joining in on the fun will also be Rockport’s answer to Ginger Baker: Mr. Greg Dann, loving new husband, on drummbs and symbols.SHHHT! Be quiet…he’s with the Secret Service. Of course, Greg t. will be there with his hat, and me, too, on base. We’ll be doin’ a lot of dancin’!

This Friday sees the monthly return of the GEEZERZ at Elliot’s at the Blackburn. It’s only that systolic superman of sliiide: Dave Brown and his gritty gunsel Dave Mattacks on skins. Fold in one part Greg T. and one ounce of Dave Sag. Beat into a froth and pour into a martini glass.Guaranteed to  put your five o’clock shadow on daylight savings time! Czech it out!

Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ the Rhumb Line

We’re gettin’ on track for the holiday season by  bringin’ in our favorite chef and dishwasher: Mr. Mike O’Connell. His latest book: “Cooking With Beano” Is number one, nationally, and number two, locally. We eggspect some wild souffles and panting pancakes out of our gravelly genius, so get there early to get a seat.
Pushing him forward into the mix will be Leo Shimataro(sp.?) on drumbs and symbols,and of course, Greg T. on catarrh, and myself. Should be a wild time.

From Doug Silva @ THE TOPSIDE GRILLE

What’s up everyone? This Thursday I have a great band playing at The Topside. The Band, Steppers Heaven, come from Boston and they play an infusion of Blues, R&B, Funk, & Rock. I had them down last month and they were unbelievable! Honestly, if you can only make it down once to check out a band at the place, this is the one to check out. If you were there last time, you know how good they are. 2009 winners of the NEUMA (New England Urban Music Awards) categories Best blues band, Best new single, Best original music, and Best female vocalist. Also, a featured group as part of the Boston Blues Society! I am expecting a great turnout and I’m going to be opening up the back lounge for the night! Be sure to get there early if you can! I will be behind the bar as always, and it’s always easier for me to socialize a bit more before the show. Be sure to try some food/appetizers & cocktails if you haven’t tried them yet. Thanks for the continued support, the night has been a success so far and the music has been incredible, hope to see you there! Thursday night 8-11. I’ll be there after 5:00.

Here is a list of other upcoming shows:

11/19/2009 Steppers Heaven (Blues/R&B/Funk)
12/3/2009 Steve Brennan (Rock/light rock/Covers)
12/10/2009 Trish & Gary ( Bluegrass & Contemporary Folk)
12/17/2009 Julie Dougherty (Cover songs & Jazz)
1/7/2010 Ric St. Germaine (Electric Acoustic/Guitar & Vocals)

FRIDAY NOVEMBER 20

From Frank Hawks-
Slingdaddy has its first show at the Rhumbline in Gloucester, this
Friday, Nov 20th.  This one could be one for the ages….the stars have
aligned in such a way that members of one of Gloucester’s band’s from the
heyday of such venues as Li’l Earl’s are able to converge and thus there
will be a  mini-reunion of “Macduff”.  For those of you who remember the
vocals of Rebecca Jackson, the thundering rhythm section of  Spanks and Orlando with the twin Marshalls of them Hawks(e)s boys – we will all be there.  There will definitely be some “sittin’ in” going on.  (Don’t
worry, the twin Marshalls will stay at home).

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

SATURDAY NOVEMBER 21

Also from Frank Hawks-

For a change of pace, my other project, the Megan McKenzie Band will be
at Elliot’s @ the Blackburn on Saturday, November 21st.  Fronted by the
powerful vocals of Megan Downey, and backed by local veterans of the
Gloucester music scene, Megan McKenzie Band performs songs from the 60′s to the present.  Remember, this show is from 8:30pm to 11:30pm.

From GMG’s own Mike Lindberg

Don’t miss Exit 11 this coming Saturday Night at Camerons. We don’t get together that often so it’s sure to be a great time. See you there!

ALYSSA SUEDE ROCKS GLOUCESTER

“She may be the sister of Beck, but Alyssa Suede sounds more like a mix of Jewel and Alanis Morrisette.” – Rock is Life.com

Singer/Songwriter, Alyssa Suede began her music career two years ago under the guidance of her dad, renowned arranger/composer David Campbell. She spent the past year playing clubs in N.Y., Nashville, Los Angeles and Northern California. Her latest performances include the 2009 Sundance festival and this year’s SXSW.

Presented by local promoters Victory Agents and Dan King, Suede will take the stage for one night only at Elliotts in Gloucester.

Comfortable alone on stage, Alyssa moves with ease from guitar to piano to harmonium and has a voice thats been called “-breaking, twangy [with a] musical likeness to Jewel that is often startling.” – Muzikreviews

Meanwhile, her single “Falling from Mars” has already generated a buzz in the film community winning “Best Music Video” at the Memphis 2008 Film Festival and “Best Original Song” at the 2008 Feel Good Film Festival in Hollywood. Her EP, “Black and White in Color” was released in October of 2008 and is available on iTunes.

“Suede has chops that show promise in the future.” – L.A. Times

Doors at 7pm
Show promptly at 8pm
$10 at the door

This just added!
MARINA EVANS will be doing an opening set of her best material.
Marina has been making waves around the Cape Ann scene lately bringing even more excitement to this very special show!

Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ the Rhumb Line and Beyond

It’s gonna be a busy week, so, let’s get going.
Thursday nite, it looks like yet another close encounter of the fourth kind, as we welcome back that doodley duo: Mario Perrett and Edd “Duodenum” Scheer. I love playin’ with these guys. Cutie-Pie Mario, who may or may not have posed for Playgirl Magazine, will be honkin’ his sax and testifyin’ to that vocal jive while Ed, our see-thru drummer and vocal ad-libber will be nailin’ down the beat and laughing at everybody within earshot.Looking befuddled and playing his catarrh will be Greg T.,of course, and I, too, on base.

Things deteriorate rapidly this Friday nite at Elliot’s at the Blackburn, with the triumphant return of The Geezerz. Last time there we outdid ourselves and I was forced to change my slacks twice (Just kidding).As you all must know by now, The big G is decomposed of Dave Brown, battin’ cleanup, Dave Mattacks, who carefully locates that arcane spot between tick and tock, Greg Tower, who nullifies the void, and myself, with mop and pail.Showtime is 8:30, and ends when the band disappears.

But, wait! there’s more: If you act now I’ll throw in with no cost to anyone: another jam session! Yes, yes, this Sunday afternoon, from 1 to 4  at Chianti’s in Beverly, there will be a monstro gathering of the troops to raise money for The North Shore Blues Project. This is the brainchild of local filmmaker Henry Ferrini, and we gotta help him out. Tryin’ to get some dough together to spread the word of the blues to kids around here with film and live performances. On tap are the likes of Willie”Loco” Alexander,John Hyde and his blushing bride, Sandi Bedrosian, Mark Retallack, Rik and Al-x Razdan  and many others, myself included.C’mon down!

Finally, for those of you who are underemployed,or just darn lazy, Monday afternoon at the Rose Baker Senior Center got sumfthin for yoo: the Good Old Saltine Jazz Band playin’ yer favorite hits from 1910 on. I play bass with these guys, and it’s great fun.Stop in from 1 to 3 for a taste of the real thing. No cover, no minimum! Ta-Ta!

Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ the Rhumb Line

“Big fun this thursday as we welcome back slumlord and guitar gunslinger Mr. Billy Loosigian, the scourge of N.H. stripmalls. Y’all remember Billy, or is it Buffalo Bilious, the famous juggler of hot blues lix, ancient rock’n’roll samples and general musical magician, courtesy of Willie Alexander’s Ragtime Band. Billy is one of the most sought-after call guys on the Boston circuit, and we got ‘im, and we’re gonna  blow a fuse. Wear rubber gloves. And, oh, by the way, girls, he’s single! and not even remotely gay! And lives out of town! Get in line! I’m sellin’ tickets!
Blacking him up will be our own Frosty The Snowman, Mr. Forrest Padgett, on Drummbulators, the nicest guy I’ve ever known, and of, course, Greg T. on catarrh, and myselph, on base. We’re gonna romp and stomp till midnite. Honk and sneeze till daylite. You come, too.”
