4 Days left to get in on the action in Beverly

9WallisApprovedIt’s right down the road. Geographically, you could argue it’s the beginning of Cape Ann (see map) AND you can get there on a CATA bus… Beverly’s arts scene is about to get its first performance/event venue with flexible table seating from cabaret-style, to theatre-style to elegant dinner parties, called 9 Wallis.  Plus it’s a new venue for Gloucester artists to perform in — yes, Gloucester artists do cross the bridge from time-to-time.

We first told you about it in this post.  Here’s an update:

On Jan 12, the City of Beverly approved our liquor license and we’ve tentatively scheduled our Grand Opening Gala for Saturday, April 1.

Now you’ve got 4 days to help us get it open by pledging to our Kickstarter Campaign — and in return reap some wicked cool rewards like an invitation to our Grand Opening Gala!

psssst … all the cool kids will be there  ….

 

This Thursday at The Dave Sag’s Blues Party ~ Mr. Brad Faucher 8:30pm @ The Rhumb Line 1.19.2017

dsc00234Our continuing series at the Rhumb Line continues this Thursday with the arrival of Mr. Brad Faucher. In the old days, Brad was an irregular upon these shores, but has since left the North Shore for greener oceans, i.e. getting his own Thursday gig, but I’ve managed to bribe him to come back and continue where he’s left off. An amazing blues scholar, Mr. B. will tantalize you with his meaty interpretations of R&B classics and sordid blooze.

He’s bringing along his old goombahs, Mr. John Cameron, on keys, and former Broomful o’ Blooz drummmbler, Mr. Chris Rivelli.

The A-Train Orchestra show at The Rhumb Line at  9pm tonight is sadly canceled..atrain-doc

Finally we have our own venue!

9WallisKickstarterThose of you who know us may know that we’ve presented over 100 shows in over a dozen venues since we produced the first Celebrate Gloucester Festival to launch Cruiseport Gloucester in 2007.  You may also know that all of our concerts were held in other people’s venues.  Now we have one of our own.  And we need your help to get it open.

We just launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise money to cover the opening costs of this new venue — right down the road at 9 Wallis Street in downtown Beverly, MA. We recently signed a long-term lease on this beautifully restored, historic building formerly owned by members of Le Grand David and his own Spectacular Magic Company, next to The Larcom, where we’ve been presenting shows since 2013.

It’s a gorgeous, fully-accessible room with parquet floors, plenty of natural woodwork, an elegantly curved oak bar, marble restrooms and all the modern conveniences you’d ever want!

We’re calling this new multi-purpose space “9 Wallis” and it will give us a home where we can continue and grow our passion – to feature national touring artists on an intimate stage and showcase local rising stars, plus offer our guests comfortable table seating with food and beverages.

Once we open, 9 Wallis will offer something not available elsewhere on Cape Ann: a fully-accessible, year-round performance space with flexible seating that can also host fundraisers, corporate events and private parties (see splash page) in any number of configurations.

We’ve cooked up some “wicked cool” rewards for pledges of all sizes (see here) so feel free to pledge any amount that you’re comfortable with.

PLEDGE HERE! and Please share with your friends!

Are you going to be awake @ midnight 2017?

jamesmontgomery

James Montgomery Kicks 2016 outa here!

For us NYE is different every year.  Some years we struggle to stay awake.  Other years we’re in party mode. Like many of you, we’re eager to see 2016 gone and welcome 2017 in the most fun way possible, so we’re in PARTY MODE.

If you’re in party mode too, there’s lots to do (see here) — and all night long, meaning you don’t necessarily have to choose — YOU CAN DO IT ALL!  You could go to an early show that’s over by 9:30 and then bop down the road to Beverly’s Vittori-Rocci Hall and help blues legend James Montgomery KICK 2016 out and rock in 2017.  That’s where we’ll be.

Check out this story in the Gloucester Daily Times for a preview of what to expect.  In James’ own words, “It’s going to be a powerful show.”

Just in case you forgot what a true rock star he is, here’s a video of James Montgomery with the Allman Brothers Band about 4 years ago.

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
