Sax Gordon Tonight! Dave Sag’s Blues Party 8:30pm @ The Rhumb Line 12.22.2016

dave-sag-rl-10.29.205

I know a lot of you are frustrated from the ravages of Father Time and an eerie lack o’ wanna so, why not get hip to the latest and greatest in the phony cyber world of adult matchmaking services? Try new Carbondating® for adults. Just send in a sample of hair (if any), spittle, or toe jam and the wonderful failed German South American doctors at our cosmetic laboratory will have you fixed up in no time with a truly compatible specimen. Just like you! And if that doesn’t work, try this:
Our special Xmas show this Thursday features the clinically-proven Magi of Mayhem: Mr. Gordon “Sax” Beadle. With his own brand of fairy dust, Big G, catnip to your ears, will have you convulsing in the aisles,whilst you beg to donate to our Musician’s Retirement Plan©, and just basically turning the old bar into a steaming heap of writhing bodies.

A very special night… Wednesday, December 21st – 7pm ~ The 7th Annual AMERO FAMILY CHRISTMAS!

rl-yellow

 

 

On Christmas Eve, it was always an “Amero” tradition to gather and sing in the back room of the old house
in Essex with our beloved Mother Moulty and friends. These days, what happens at the Rhumb Line each
year on the last Wednesday before Christmas is pretty much an extension of our youth. In other words,
yes… we are INDEED grown up children. This Wednesday marks the 7th go-around for us – and it really
seems to have taken on a life of its own. Festive, fun and laughing all the way, the audience joins in on
classics like “Holly Jolly Christmas” & “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” – as well as a few of my, shall we
say, “twisted” numbers, like “(Have Yourself A) Willie Nelson Christmas” and “The Restroom Door Said
Gentlemen”. It’s a frickin’ blast no matter how you look at it. We urge that you arrive early to claim your
seat. It gets pretty nuts! Merry Christmas everyone! ~ Fly

Yo people! You really need to get out and see some of the
amazing Rhumb Line Wednesday happenings. It’s just over
the top, the talent we have tucked away on Cape Ann. Let’s
take this week’s guest, for instance… Liz Frame. Some of
the sharpest, wittiest and most polished lyric writing you’d
ever pay a fortune to see and hear – for no cover charge
whatsoever! She is pure joy. Do NOT make me come out
there and literally drag your rum-pum-pum bums from the
house in which they sit! 🙂

Also… please tune in for the Amero Family (Linda, JB & Fly)
on North Shore 104.9’s “Curtain Up” with Aurelia Nelson
this coming Sunday, 9-9:30am. We’ll be playing a few festive

QUENTIN CALLEWAERT joins Fly Amero This Wednesday 7pm December 7th @ The Rhumb Line!

Dinner Specials Each Week!
Wednesday, December 7th – 7pm
A VERY, VERY Special Music Guest:
QUENTIN CALLEWAERT!

qc-fly

Folks… something very, very special will be happening this
week at the Rhumb. A young (he’s only 16) genius by the
name of Quentin Callewaert will be strutting his amazing
stuff for us all. He reminds me so much of myself when I
was his age (just a few years ago, of course). So full of
spirit and enthusiasm. He loves what he does, and it shows.
Some of you may have caught him on cable’s “Local Music
Seen” with Allen Estes – way back when he was only THIRTEEN!
OMG! And speaking of “back”… for those wondering, I am
100% back on my weekly Rhumb Line rotation. Surely,
Quentin and I will be trading a few licks, and maybe teaching
each other a few new tricks. Marina Evans is out of country
for the holidays this year. We’ll catch up when she returns.
And, something else to watch for… please don’t miss Allen
Estes, myself, Senator Bruce Tarr and many more friends on
North Shore 104.9’s live broadcast of its 21st annual Holiday
Toy Drive this coming Thursday. The fun and festivities will
be running throughout the entire day. Click the link below
for further details. All for now. Happy Holidays! ~ Fly

Happiness is art for Naomi Lee ~ See her work at Cape Ann Coffees through the end of December 2016

naomi-oldshot

Artist Naomi Lee, of Gloucester Massachusetts, found a new way of
self expression, taking nature’s gifts and turning them into art.
Naomi, usually, tries for perfection by taking many photos of natural subjects she sees, whether landscapes, seascapes, sun and moon rises and sets, over land or sea and, of course, sea gulls. Naomi studies the ever changing light and shadows and when she’s ready, puts the image on canvas.
Naomi’s inspiration of self expression does indeed come from nature’s gifts.

Naomi says, “It is all in the eyes of an artist.”

Driftwood, fishing line, gill net, fishermen’s knotted ropes, shells, sea glass or anything else she finds on a beach or rocky coast is what she turns into art.
Naomi has created art with branches, bark and twigs from her own backyard. Some of these elements are added to existing paintings to further express the feeling of the work.
