Quotes
“For what it’s worth to my ears, this version of SSA is one of the best versions I’ve heard. It’s how The Ronettes or Shangra La’s would approach it. Very cool stuff!!” – Paul Kopf, Magic Christian
“It’s fantastic…And what an insight for me. Mainly, because I never realized The Four Tops influence when I wrote it. But it’s obvious…because of their version. Thanks a whole lot for hippin’ me to it!” – Cyril Jordan, Flamin’ Groovies
“I’m fascinated by the fact that you guys are doing material that’s inspired by the things we did with Phil Spector in the ’60′s. I think it pays tribute to a classic sound which will always be fresh and which will never become dated over time.” – LaLa Brooks, The Crystals

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!

Willie ” Loco” Alexander Tonight! Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb Line 8:30-11:30 July 31, 2014

dave sag rl 4.3.2014

 

I’m psyched that Willie “Loco” Alexander is joining me this week! Forget this “Godfather”  jazz: Willie is the real deal. Anybody  with this kind of history is my kind of guy. His jackhammer style spackles all the cracks in the real rock ‘n’ roll pantheon. Makes me feel 20 again!
He’ll be bringing his longtime guitarist, Mr. Billy Loosigian, the phlegmatic,articulate articulator of artifice with him along with that cackling, lightning cracker, Mr. Steve Chaggaris, on the skins. I’ll be on bass, as usual. Stick that safety pin in your brain and dream about  the days you never lived through! Hours:8:30 to 11:30.

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

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.

I’d like to take the time to let you all know that June 13th will be my last show with the Bandit Kings. My last show with Safety will be at the end of the Summer.
It’s been an amazing run with incredibly talented musicians.
Music lovers, friends, and family, you continue to help make the magic happen.
I’ve been lucky to have many paths to follow, but it’s time for me to venture onto another.
Thank you so much for rocking with me, and I hope to see you on the dance floor!
