Dave says,

It’s Guitarzan week this Thursday as two of the finest guitarists on my list come together for a great night of wailing and gnashing of teeth. Firstly, there’s the commodious Steve Sadler who really belts it out.

Then there’s Jimmy Scoppa who really belts it out. They fuse with great zzzing  and dripping. Top it off with the twitching of Mr. Jeff Casper, the friendly drummer and myself on the low end and We’re really gonna stir it up!

Dave Sag’s Blues Party Tonight with Scotty Shetler @ The Rhumb Line 8:30-11:30pm 8.27.2015

Dave Saginario

Dave says,

This Thursday I’m really psyched to bring you something new and scrofulous: The Tenor Titan, Mr. Scotty Shetler. We played here in the “old” days and he just slipped through my cracks. Ah, all these years…. You gotta hear this guy play! He just oozes Omphalos! Sings, too. A great front man!

Not only that, but Mr. Pete Henderson,lonely in these parts, is making a rare appearance on catarrh and vocals. Another awesome boost to our flame-throwing lineup.Top it all off with the Atomic Clock, Mr. David Mattacks with me cringing in the background and you’ll be crying “Uncle!”. This could be one of the best shows all summer!

Bradley’s the one on the right. Though years have passed, I
believe it’s safe to say Mr. Royds is aging as gracefully as
the other guy did. Biggest difference between the two?
Bradley makes HIS OWN music – and it’s pretty damn good
at that! See you there – 7pm! ~ Fly

Naomi Lee shares her art in Gloucester and around Cape Ann. Also, This Sunday August 16th 2015 at The Magnolia Historical Society from 2-6pm. 46 Magnolia Ave Magnolia, Massachusetts

Naomi Lee (Glimcher Panarello) who has made her home here in Gloucester for the past eight years was a long time resident of Revere for thirty seven years and moved on to Marblehead for 18 years. She has been interested in art since early child hood. Always creating something from paint, mud and clay, she has even mentioned how she loved to get punished, knowing she would be sent to her room on purpose. It was there she could be secluded and create her art. She remembers painting birds on vinyl window shades. Also, one of a beautiful parrot that her mother gave to a neighbor who had mentioned how much she loved it.

At the age thirteen she went to the Museum Of Fine Arts and took a course in sculpture and that’s only training she has gotten, everything else was self taught. Because of her skills she ended up working in Parks and Recreation teaching children to senior citizens to create things from clay, later working at two different Jewish community centers one in Revere and one in Marblehead. For one season she was the Art Director at the Eastern Yacht club for the summer program. This was around the early 1990’s and continued teaching until the early 2000’s. Her last position was at Temple Emanuel teaching pottery in Marblehead 2002.

Two and a half years ago she was juried into the Guild of Beverly Artists, while looking to make money to get her car fixed, during that time she did five shows and many others on her own since.

There are many paintings to see of Gloucester’s landscape these happen to be a favorite subject of Naomi’s. Paintings can be done by photo or by eye. She believes in the warmth of the sun the calm of the moon the strength of the wind and power of sea.

Naomi calls this seascape of Good Harbor a miracle painting after a serious decision in her life and seeing the rainbow confirmed her choice. This is the product of doing so.

Here are some other pieces of Naomi’s  art work.

Dave says,

He’s back! By fopular demand, let’s welcome Mr. John Keegan and his roving band of flesh-eating itinerant musicians. The fearless leader of “Madhouse” will have you quaking’ and shakin’ your tootsies all night long. And he’s bringing along an infectious band of merry men to titillate and tease. We got the fabulous jazz snob, Mr.John Hyde, on the keys and accordion, we have the Irish Ace of Pace, Mr. Benny Benson on the iron lung, we have The unwitting Mr. Brian Alex, on catarrh and vocals, all topped off by the saxophone sorties of the legendary Mr. Marque Earley. Oh, and my wrist is much better, thank you very much! Showtime is 8:30 at the Rhumbline. Where else??
And don’t forget: Monday at the Rose Baker Senior Center, from 1 to 3 the Good Old Salties are still at it, gnawing our way through the entire Great American Schlongbook. It’s free! Scope it out!
