Wicked Tuna Special on Cape Ann TV TOMORROW (WED) @ 6:30 P.M.

Don’t miss the premiere of this very special Local Music Seen with Allen Estes tomorrow night at 6:30 on Cape Ann TV Channel 12.  This special was shot on location at Alchemy Bistro (at the same time as Nat Geo was shooting) and Mile Marker One.  Allen gets some of the Wicked Tuna captains to tell him what music they play aboard ship for good luck catching fish.  Then he performs his Howard Blackburn hit “Not With Ya Hands” for them.  Mix in a Wicked Tuna Seafood Throwdown and a few other surprises for a show you don’t want to miss.  Here’s a short preview of the energy you can expect from this show!

Only in Gloucester!

Only in Gloucester! The two ads appeared side by side in yesterday's Gloucester Daily Times. National Geographic is looking for new tuna boats, captains and crew who are tough and outgoing. We've got plenty of fishermen just like that here. www.WickedTunaCasting@gmail.com The Seaport Grille menu, left, lists their weekly specials. My favorite is the lobster roll with fries (slaw can be substituted). It contains the meat of one lobster served in a fresh Virgillio's roll and is priced at $9.95. Seaport also has the best view of Gloucester's "working harbor."

While dining at the Seaport Grille one night, I saw a huge tuna being offloaded across the channel under the movie lights (right). It's great to live here. www.cruiseportgloucester.com

Wicked Tuna @ Times Square NYC

Huge Thanks To The Captains Of Wicked Tuna- Dave Carraro and Dave Marciano

I’m not sure people around here outside of the restaurateurs and shop owners realize the impact that these guys have had on local business.

These hard working fishermen and real life men of character have captured the hearts of America from their legions of fans who watch Wicked Tuna.

I can’t begin to tell you how many people I run into from all over the country that come in and ask where they can see The Hard Merchandise or Tuna.com.  They love the show and they come to Gloucester to stay for vacation, eat at our restaurants and shop in our shops.  But it doesn’t end there.  They stay at our hotels, they book charters and when their charters are filled up they pass off those charters on to other local charter boat Captains. 

I hear it over and over and over again and these people are coming from all over the country.

So when you see these guys around town, give ‘em a pat on the back and say thanks for representing our City and making us proud.

VIDEO: Allen Estes & Howard Blackburn on Wicked Tuna

Last night Allen Estes performed his hit, “Not With Ya Hands” about Gloucester’s hero Howard Blackburn at the Alchemy Bistro Wicked Tuna Challenge, which was filmed for next season’s Wicked Tuna by the Nat Geo crew.  And our own intrepid Lisa Smith caught all the action for Cape Ann TV.  We can’t show you everything we shot until early next year when Wicked Tuna Season 3 premieres, but we can show you Allen’s performance right now and you can catch a glimpse of the film crew at the end.

Best of all, you can see Allen Estes live with a new six-piece, all-star band on October 5th at the historic Larcom Theatre in Beverly.  You’ll hear old favorites along with new music he hasn’t yet recorded.  Allen — with his new band featuring multi-platinum guitarist David Brown with Fairport Convention founder Dave Mattacks on drums, Matt Leavenworth on fiddle, Steve Burke on keyboards and Wolf Ginandes on Bass — will have you on your feet!

This will be a night you won’t soon forget.  Good seats are still available.  Get them here.

To get you in the mood, watch Allen’s Souls of the Sea special tonight at 6:30 on Cape Ann TV  Channel 12.

Alchemy Chef Scott Jensen wins Wicked Tuna Challenge at Alchemy last night

Last night Alchemy’s chef Scott Jensen narrowly defeated chef Steve Morlino of Boston’s Union Bar and Grille (where Chef Scott got his start) at the Alchemy Bistro Wicked Tuna Challenge, which was judged by the audience, who got to taste both dishes.

Before dinner, Alchemy’s mixologist Felicia Grossi, who won the Block Party’s first Ryan & Wood Cocktail Contest mixed up her Ryan & Wood signature cocktail for fishermen and guests aboard one of the Tuna boats.

And our son, John, got to pilot the boat.  “That boat’s got a lot of tech!” says John.

The entire event was filmed for Wicked Tuna Season 3 and Lisa Smith caught all the action for Cape Ann TV.  You’ll be able to see some of the event on Cape Ann TV before Wicked Tuna Season 3 premieres, and we’ll let you know when to catch it.

If You Ever Had a Doubt That Nat Geo Is Putting Serious Dinero Behind Wicked Tuna…

All You Have To Do Is Look at The Sick Gear They Are Using To Shoot It.

Listen, in the past 5 years with the incredible advances in camera technology every soccer mom in the universe thinks they are capable movie producers.

I can’t begin to tell you how many different production companies have come down to the docks pitching us on yet another idea for a reality show based on our dock and our lobstermen.

Most have their Canon Mark X with a Video shooting rig and all the L series lenses.  They want you to sign your life away, work for peanuts for the first season and do everything but tell you that they are going to make you look like a complete jackass. But hey, you’ll be on TV so it’s all good.  99% of them are jokers.

Not the team from EvolveIMG, the team who shoots Wicked Tuna.  They are the real deal and from this shot just inside the dogbar breakwater of the type of high tech gear they are using to shoot the next season of Wicked Tuna, you know this is a big budget, high quality outfit.
