Dave says,

I’m back! And I’m ready to esophageally regale you with tales of loup Garou, after visiting the hinterlands  of swamp county, USA. Let’s go!
This week is brought to you  by those  zzzing folks at Instant Blues® liver enlightener. Yes, Yes, feeling blue? or seasick?  Just mix our steaming powder with vodka  for instant relief of conundrums, boils and shortness of pants. Relief guaranteed!
That means Mr. Chris “Stovall” Brown and his band of renown are in town. Chris, the ultimate string-biting, double- jointed gootarist and vogellist is ready to take you to the cleaners, blues- wise. I love playing with this guy! Not only that, but Mr. Jim Gwin, Fred’s brother,and Boston Pops stalwart will be allowed to remove his ankle bracelet and join us. I’ll be back singing’ and frolicking’ on the bass. Come join us!

M.E. Productions Presents ‎LEON RUSSELL w/ guest Allen Estes May 30th 8pm @ The Larcom Theatre

leon russel promo

 

Rock and roll Renaissance man. That best describes this Music Legend. Leon Russell’s long and storied career includes collaborations with a virtual who’s who of music icons spanning from Jerry Lee Lewis to Phil Spector to the Rolling Stones. A similar eclecticism and scope also surfaced in his solo work, which couched his charmingly gravelly voice in a rustic yet rich swamp pop fusion of country, blues, and gospel.

Between his solo work, contributions to high-profile albums by other artists, and screen exposure in the Bangla Desh and Mad Dogs & Englishmen documentaries, Russell became a veritable superstar in the Seventies. Russell has won two Grammy awards, chart-topping hits and was inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011. Don’t miss this Intimate Show with a Music Legend.

allen-estes p

Award-winning singer/songwriter, Allen Estes, wrote Tammy Wynette’s top 40 hit “Next To You”, “Where’d They Go” (the official song of the City of Gloucester) and songs for The Souls of the Sea musical. While working as a songwriter in Nashville, Allen practically invented the genre “Americana” and you’ll hear influences from pop, rock, folk, blue-grass and country.

 

Allen has produced over a dozen albums and his songs have be

en recorded by Tammy Wynette, Shania Twain, Dave Mallett, Tom Wopat and The Judds. He has toured with/and opened for Bonnie Raitt, J. Geils, Tim McGraw, America, Jose Feliciano, Reba McEntire, Waylon Jennings, Kenny Chesney, Tricia Yearwood, Livingston Taylor, Robert Palmer, Jonathan Edwards, Tom Rush and Earl Scruggs, among many others.

Winner of the Independent Music World Series New England and voted Best Independent Act of New England, Allen and his band always give a captivating performance that brings audiences to their feet.

Dave says,

I’m throwing Ms. Lisa Marie to the wolves this week as I bow out to the travel gods and take my muddy boots to New Orleans. I need a vacation. I’m gonna search for loop garou in the fetid swamps. I’m gonna get bit on my mojo hand. And I’m gonna eat too much. I can’t wait!
So Ms. LM is bringing in the heavy artillery in the form of Mr. Johnnie Juxo, Tarzan of the keys, Mr. Silverfish Steve on DDT glitar and Mr. Chris “Anzio” Anzelone on clubs. It’ll be a blast! And, I’ll see you next week! Always have fun!

Dave Sag’s Blues Party Tonight with Professor Harp 8:30 to 11:30pm @ The Rhumb Line 4.9.2015

dave-sag-rl-4-3-2014-1 (2)Dave says,

Let’s try someone new! Can I inveigle you to join us for a hotplate excursion into Chicago blues? i’ve got Professor Harp showing up to entertain you with his red hot harp and acute vocals.  I was playing a date somewhere recently and this guy just shows up with a harp or two, sits in, and proceeds to knock the crowd down like they’re  bowling pins. So, here he is in Gloucester. Hopefully, he’ll do the same.

Backing him up will be Mr. Mike DiBari, on guitar, last seen with the Gordie Beadle show and Mr. Steevee Chaggaris, our tonsorially-challenged drummbler. Should be a great time!
Next week I’ll be in New Orleans, but don’t worry, Ms. Lisa Marie will be riding into town with her cavalry to save the day. All her usual suspects will regale you whilst I put on a few pounds sampling that fine cuisine. Won Ton Roulez!!

Don’t miss out on Martha Davis and The Motels with Ruby Rose Fox opening @ The Larcom Theatre on April 22,2015

Martha Davis and The Motels

Her voice is unique, unmistakable and timeless. Already sold out at TCAN in Natic, Martha Davis and The Motels burst into Beverly on April 22 for one night only!

Don’t miss the band that defined MTV with their top 10 hits “Only the Lonely,” “Suddenly Last Summer,” “Total Control,” “Take the L out of Lover” and more.

“…arguably the most charismatic female performer in rock.”

– Robert Hilburn, The Los Angeles Times

“Martha Davis, of the Motels, was still strong in voice and admirably delivered hits like ‘Only The Lonely’ and ‘Suddenly Last Summer.'”

– Hollywood Reporter (about recent Hollywood Bowl Concert)

Ruby Rose Fox opening

Ruby Rose Fox, a vocal powerhouse of soul driven, edgy rock ‘n’ roll (with a nod to newwave pop), whose voice threatens to knock down the walls of any room in which she performs is hard at work to make 2015 her strongest year of new releases and live performances. Ruby Rose Fox was the lone standout of Boston-based artists to make The Boston Globe’s list of “10 Bands and Solo Artists to Watch in 2015,” and winner of the 2014 Boston Music Award for Best Female Vocalist in addition to her nomination for Singer-Songwriter of the Year.

“arty, edgy rock ‘n’ roll that lets her be Lou Reed and Nico at the same time … [and seems] to come from another scene, another world.”
– Jed Gottlieb, Boston Herald

Little Feat Duo and NOLA Suspects Jam @ The Larcom Theatre in Beverly, Ma.

 

Beverly, MA.  M.E. Productions is excited to present The New Orleans Suspects with Little Feat’s Paul Barrere and Fred Tackett at the Larcom Theatre on Saturday, April 11th at 8pm.  The Suspects are known as a NOLA supergroup, and Barrere & Tackett as multi instrumental jam pioneers.    The night will culminate with a full set of the music of Little Feat.   Tickets for this concert start at $35..

NOLA-Suspects

The New Orleans Suspects

paulfred 1

Little Feat’s Paul Barrere and Fred Tackett

 

 

Music of the Big Easy.  It’s as American as apple pie–and rock ‘n roll itself.  It transcends boundaries, a freewheeling fusion of California rock, Dixie-inflected roots, and country-fried funk and boogie.  For one night only, New Orleans Suspects will join forces with Paul Barrere and Fred Tackett of Little Feat. Don’t miss a rare and intimate show with the men who continue to bring you Little Feat(on an ‘ indefinite hiatus’), and a NOLA superband.   Yep, we said it…superband.

The New Orleans Suspects formed in summer of 2011 in the wake of the breakup of The Radiators after 34 years. The band comprises some of the best, most highly respected players in New Orleans, including: Reggie Scanlan on bass (Radiators, Professor Longhair Band); Mean Willie Green on drums (Neville Bros. current drummer since 1981); Jeff Watkins (James Brown Band, Joss Stone Band) on saxophone; Jake Eckert on guitar/vocals (current member of The Dirty Dozen Brass Band); and CR Gruver on keyboards and vocals (Polytoxic, Outformation).

Paul Barrere plays a mean slide guitar, and sings lead and background vocals for Little Feat. He joined Little Feat for the band’s third album Dixie Chicken, and the rest is history with his guitar,vocals, and songwriting becoming an important part of the Little Feat sound.  Fred Tackett plays guitar, trumpet, and mandolin for Little Feat. Hailing from Arkansas, Fred Tackett worked as a side man on many Little Feat albums before becoming a full member of the band for Let It Roll. Along with his fine guitar work, Fred’s mandolin and trumpet have become a featured part of the Little Feat sound. The duo first played together on the album ”Dixie Chicken” some thirty-five years ago.

The night will begin with a set from Barrere & Tackett, then The New Orleans Suspects will perform a full set of their own material. If that wasn’t enough, the two groups will join forces at the end of the night for a crowd pleasing set of Little Feat tunes.

“We have so many great shows on the North Shore…but we’re pretty excited about this one.  It’sgoing to be FUN,” say Seth McNally of M.E. Productions.  “If you like New Orleans music, or Little Feat, mark your calendar.”

Tickets to see NOLA Suspects with Barrere and Tackett are $30, $35, and $40 for premier seating.  For tickets and more information visit www.larcomtheater.com or call 978-525-9093

This Thursday let’s welcome back Gloucester’s own Bobby Davis aka Johnny Carwash for another groovy night of surf toons and other related guitar ruminations. Bobby’s the best! With his effervescent style he’ll have you on the floor writhing with abandon. Along with David “Doc” Vincent on the skins, the circle is complete. We’ll be re-creating all your memories that were playing on your 8-track while you were losing your virginity. Don’t miss it!
