Dave says,

A major chunk of the Boston blues scene is gonna come crashing on your head this Thursday night, as I welcome back the Octomom® of the Blues: Ms. Diane Blue. The Divine Miss B has been busy and to show appreciation, she’s dragging in some of the top players around. The corpus delicti consists of Mr. Bobby Gus, glitar wunderkind and general ding dong daddy, Mr. Joe Bargar keyboard arachnid and swelling reducer, and the fabulous Mr. Steve Bankuti, algorhythmist, on the skins. This is a dangerous band. I’m wearing my truss. Ask your doctor if the blues Bash is right for you.

Chris Stovall Brown joins the Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb Line. Tonight 8:30pm 7.23.2015

dave-sag-rl-4-3-2014-1 (2)

We’ll provide a musical haymaker this Thursday with the delivery of Mr. Chris “Stovall” Brown to our shores. It’s been a while since Chris has been here and we welcome his string-biting analgesic style as we cavort thru the entire teenage canon of pimply blues and other sordid recollections of days gone by. A blast to play with! Not only that, but the Atomic Clock hisself, Mr. Dave Mattacks, supplies the heartbeat. Expect to hear a lot of bad jokes, rampant diatribes and plenty of whining about the Republicans or the tip jar. I’ll be on base, too, with my newly freed right hand out of the cast (of thousands!) and into a free-range productive baby button, held up by a strong belt of vodka. hit at 8:30 at the Rhoomba Line.

Dave Sag’s Blues Party

Why not c’mon down to the Rhumbline this Thursday and dance your ass off to the pimple-popping sounds of that Tootin’ Torquemada of the Tenor: Mr. Andrew Clark. With his erumpent  vocal shenanigans and ventricle-atomizing saxophone, there’ll be plenty to talk to your therapist about on your next visit. I’m making an appointment now. Not only that but Mr. Steve Sadler, on catarrh, will  be sandbagging the groove with the likes of Mr. Ephraim Lowell, on the jackhammers. Gonna be a great night!

M.E. Productions presents HOT TUNA w/ Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams Saturday, July 11 at 8:00 pm – all tickets $45

Rock N Roll Hall of Fame alumnus, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady have been performing together for the past 50 years. Originating from Jefferson Airplane, the duo formed the iconic blues-roots band Hot Tuna.

While in Jefferson Airplane, putting together the soundtrack of the 60s, the pair remained loyal to the blues, jazz, bluegrass, and folk influences of the small clubs and larger venues they had learned from years before. San Francisco down time…hotel rooms on the road…just about anywhere they could manage some off time, they would play together and worked up a set of songs that mirrored their love of roots music. They would often play ‘their’ music at clubs in the Bay Area and while on the road, often after having played a set with the Airplane. In an era in which volume often overtrumped musicianship, Hot Tuna provided both. Fans also discovered that Jack and Jorma really loved to play, sometimes 3-6 hour long sets…which only energized the crowds, and in turn energized their performances.

Jorma and Jack certainly could not have imagined, let alone predicted, where playing would take them. It’s been a long and fascinating road to numerous exciting destinations. After two decades of acoustic and electric concerts and albums, the 1990s brought a new focus on acoustic music to Hot Tuna. More intimate venues with a more individual connection to the audience became increasingly frequent stops. Soon, the loud electric sound (and the semi trailer load of equipment) disappeared entirely from Hot Tuna tours. Two things have never changed: They still love to play as much as they did as kids, and there are still many, many exciting miles yet to travel on their musical odyssey.

Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams

Larry Campbell recently performed, and some say stole the show, to a full house at the Shalin Liu Performance Center alongside David Bromberg and David Hidalgo. Larry is well known in musical circles, initially as the instrumental wizard behind Bob Dylan’s Never Ending Tour and later as the musical director and three-time Grammy-winning producer for Levon Helm. Campbell’s musical dexterity is legendary and won him a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Americana Music Association. Larry stays busy producing albums for Garland Jefferies, the Steep Canyon Rangers, David Bromberg and Hot Tuna. Campbell is married to Teresa Williams and the pair often perform together. The two of them also performed on Jorma Kaukonen’s newest album, Ain’t In No Hurry.

Dave says,

Our post-dramatic Forth of July Edema Series continues this Thursday with the crash-landing of Mr. Gordon “Sax” Beadle on our shores.If I gotta tell you who he is, you’ve been in an ocarina-induced coma. So, wake up! An icon for Yahooism, he’ll be arriving with his eye sockets red glare and his sax bombs bursting in air. The joint will be jumpin’! Who needs fireworks!
Not only that, but he’ll be bringing along that bubbling two-fisted master of Qatar, Mr. Mike DiBari. A great match. Also, former RFB drummmbler, Mr. Ephraim Lowell will be propelling his arms in a desperate attempt to make sense of the whole thing. I’ll be there, too, in a few pieces, but serviceable. You don’t want to miss this! Showtime 8:30.
