Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb Line to Host Ricky “King” Russell along with Ed Scheer and Mario Perrett…Put on your dancing shoes! 8:30pm-11:30pm

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.

And then, on Saturday, why not grab some extra chewing gum, lube up with Hai Karate® and join “Madhouse” for some fun and alcoholic madness at Captain Carlo’s. John Keegan© and his voracious ants are ready to crawl up your leg once again and make you dizzy on the dance floor. Come celebrate the end of summer(???)!
And don’t forget: for those of you in the prune juice and Cheez-Whiz® crowd, there’s always a great free show with the Good Old Salty Jazz Band this coming Monday at The Rose Baker Senior Center. From 1 to 3 these kats wail the greatest old toons in the world! It’s a national treasure! Shame on you for ignoring it!

And we’re using a cool and totally new drummbler in the form of Mr. Chris Anzelone, a monster in his own right. Can’t wait! c’mon down and watch the fur fly!

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.

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.
