Sax Gordon Tonight! Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb Line 8:30-11:30pm 3.26.2015

sax
Dave says,

So, this is the big one: The return of the one and only Mr. Gordon Beadle. The man with the golden Sax. This hypoxia-inducing master of the honky sax will have you gasping for breath as he literally sucks all the oxygen out of the room and recycles it wobbling directly into your pineal gland. Woe to those who miss this.
But, wait, there’s more: Mr. Edd Scheer, leader of the Love Dogs, will be bashing the drums and singing all those crazy old songs that you know and love. Furthermore, Mr. Mike DiBari will be plucking those glitar strings. this could be one of my all-time favorite units to work with. It always takes me two days to recover! We all sing, we all play and we’re gonna laugh our asses off, to boot.  You should come!

Lynne Taylor on Local Music Seen with Allen Estes Tonight @ 6pm

Host Allen Estes welcomes Newburyport’s Lynne Taylor as his guest on Cape Ann TV’s Local Music Seen tonight at 6pm.  If you miss it tonight, you can catch her Wednesday at 6:30pm or Friday at 1pm.  See full schedule here.

The daughter of a folk musician and a poet, Lynne grew up in Kent, Ohio during the seventies, and absorbed the social consciousness of that time. She has always felt that music was her calling. She began writing her own songs at the age of fourteen, and has been performing professionally ever since. Lynne’s music is characterized by poignant, honest songwriting combined with a powerful vocal style and unique piano accompaniment. A staple on the music scene in her adopted hometown of Newburyport, MA, she has been performing professionally across the northeastern US since 1985.
In addition to being a popular solo artist, Lynne can also be found having a blast playing bass in her all original punk band, Halo and the Harlots and in roots/alt/country band Liz Frame and the Kickers! One thing is certain; Lynne Taylor has a sound and spirit that is instantly recognizable and all her own!

Lynne released a self-produced solo CD entitled Grace in 1996 and her band, Rantic, released their self-titled CD in 2001. Liz Frame and the Kickers released their first full-length studio recording in Oct. 2011, Halo and the Harlots released their self-titled debut in 2014, and Lynne released When Lightning Strikes in Oct. 2013.

GMG Exclusive: MOSSE the Band to play at Minglewood Tavern this Saturday

MOSSE Minglewood graphic

By John McElhenny

A hot new band called MOSSE will play at Minglewood Tavern this Saturday night. Andrew Luman, the band’s bass player and front man, lives in downtown Gloucester so Good Morning Gloucester sat down with him for an exclusive interview to get the scoop on the band, his rock star hair and whether he ever met Ric Ocasek from the Cars.

GMG: Thanks for talking with Good Morning Gloucester, Andrew. You and your family live across the street from the Cape Ann Museum in downtown Gloucester. Do you ever have to call the cops because it gets really loud over there? Museum people can be crazy.

Luman: You’d think it would be crazy over there but they are really chill people.  

GMG: You play in this cool new band that’s playing at Minglewood Tavern on Saturday night — a band called “Mosse.” Your name sounds like ferns or lichen or something. Where’d you come up with it?

Luman: We went through other names that sounded like fungus but “Fern Notice” and “Shrooms With a View” were already taken. So we went with “Mosse.”

GMG: I’m trying to figure out the pronunciation of the band’s name, “Mosse.” Does it rhyme with “floss” like dental floss or “moose” like the animal with the big antlers? Somebody told me it rhymes with “Donna Ardizzoni.” Is that true?  

Luman: Making our name impossible to pronounce was a savvy marketing technique. Not only does it not roll off your tongue, it doesn’t even make its way onto your tongue. (It’s pronounced “MOSS-ee.”)

GMG: Joey C’s favorite bands are the Bee Gees, Whitesnake and Loverboy. Does Mosse cover any of their songs?

Luman: No.

GMG: I’ve seen Mosse play out a couple times in Gloucester and you sound really good. When you play, I’ve noticed you do this rock star thing where you put your hair in a little pony tail that looks kinda ninja but also like the nub tail that’s left on a Doberman’s ass. Which look are you going for?

Luman: Definitely the ninja one.

GMG: What kind of music does Mosse play?

Luman: We like to bring Neil Young and Ryan Adams to the dinner table and have Wilco for dessert. Our originals are made from the same ingredients.  

GMG: Good Morning Gloucester contributor Kim Smith’s husband Tom was a rock star and knows Ric Ocasek, the lead singer of The Cars. Do you know Ric Ocasek from The Cars?

Luman: No.

GMG: People should know you’re a legit musician who has performed several times at Carnegie Hall in New York, which is like the most famous concert venue in the world or something. What was it like playing there? 

Luman: Exactly like Minglewood Tavern but bigger.

GMG: How did Mosse the band get started? 

Luman: Mosse was formed by magic. And by magic, I mean we are all teachers who love music and wanted to play in a band without ego and frustration. One of our guitar players, Jerry Smith, was born and raised in Gloucester. Rich Lehrer is our other guitar player and Pete Koeplin is our drummer. We started playing together and slowly weeded through songs until we found the musical core that suited us.  So basically magic. 

GMG: Peter and Vickie Van Ness are going to be mad at me for encroaching on their turf and doing a concert preview. This is definitely going to lead to an all-out concert promoter war. Which will be hard because they’re smarter than me and I know zero about music. What time is Mosse playing at Minglewood Tavern this Saturday?

Luman: 9 p.m. Hope to see you there.

You’ve got to see — and hear — to believe!

Ruby Rose FoxYou know we love to put young, rising stars on stage with national touring artists.  Often the young talent comes from Cape Ann, but this time, we’ve got Boston Music Award winner Ruby Rose Fox and her stellar band opening for Martha Davis and The Motels on April 22, right down the road at Beverly’s Larcom Theatre.

Just the thought of these 2 powerhouse voices on the same stage sends shivers up my spine.  Check her out!

In this excellent, in-depth article by Bill Copeland, Ruby says “I think it took me a long time until I could sing in the place where my voice lived.”  Truly the words of a poet and a dynamic singer-songwriter.  Don’t wait until the last minute.  Get tickets now, RIGHT HERE and be sure you’ve got a great seat to this super-hot show!

 

It’s cold in Gloucester, but hot in Austin at SXSW

I could complain that SXSW isn’t what it used to be — that’s it has morphed from a music festival to a tech festival (which it has).  Or I could just listen to the music that is still there and see what’s hot.  So I did.  Check out Elle King, who recently recorded at Sun Studios in Memphis.  If you hurry, you can get to Austin in time to see her showcase tomorrow night.

You can watch over 100 SXSW music videos here.  Let us know if you see somebody you’d like us to bring to Gloucester or Beverly.

If you’re already in Austin and checking GMG for a taste of home, I recommend you go see the world premiere of “All Things Must Pass” a documentary about the rise and fall of Tower Records.  Here’s a quote from Tower’s founder, Russ Solomon, that might surprise you, “I don’t buy records anymore. I’m too old for that.”  See the full interview here.

“Take the L out of Lover and it’s Over” – April 22

Don’t you just love that line?  It’s the chorus of this MTV smash hit by Martha Davis and the Motels.

You can see her and the band LIVE, just down the road at Beverly’s Larcom Theatre on April 22 during what is shaping up to be 80s week, with the Smithereens performing there on April 25.

Tickets just went on sale to the public today and they’re selling fast, so you might want to get them (RIGHT HERE) before it’s too late.  Here’s what the critics say:

“…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)

And here’s another of her top 10 hits, “Only The Lonely”:

The band features veterans of local bands Quits, the Nor’easters and Points North. And the Diva, Westward Ho of the Diva Hos. We are covering tunes from Steely Dan to the Stones. Eric Clapton to Stevie Wonder. With a dash of Iggy Pop and Tom Petty.

The Dogbar is located at 65 Main Street in Gloucester. Rear entrance is
located on Rogers St.

dave sag rl 4.3.2014

 

Dave says,

It’s Snowbank Removal Week as temperatures threaten to climb into the Forties. I loved my forties, when I was at the peak of my insanity, rather than being the recondite cretin that I am now: talking to pigeons and wiping saliva off my chin. But enough about me: what about that finger in your eye music happening on Thursday? And that guy who had a seizure whilst skydiving? What’s the big deal? Happens to me all the time….
So, this Thursday let’s have a ball with a sorta new guy: Mr. Tim Gartland. He’s been here before. He’s really talented and deserves your rabid attention. Tim hails from Cleveland, where he was arrested for arson after setting the Cuyahoga river on fire. Now he’s gonna torch your cerebellum with his swingfoot style of harp and vogelsang. He’s got a really cool voice, sort of a cross between Arthur Prysock and Arthur Prysock. With hints of mint courtesy of Metamucil Pete, my street connection.
Backing him up will be that plisky, spoon-bending master of glitar, Mr. Jon Ross. Trader Joe’s secret weapon. Jon is one of my favorite musicians. Fluent on Guitar, bass and drums. drives a cool ’92 Buick Wagon, too.What’s not to like? Drums beaten by Mr. Jeff Casper, the friendly drummer. I’m on bass, trying once again to steal second. C’mon down and have a good time. It’ll be warm! You might even find a parking spot!

And, don’t forget: Next Monday The Old Saltys will be controlling the universe from our secret base hidden at the Rose Baker Senior Center in downtown Gloucester. From 1 to 3, we will be controlling transmission. You ought to see these guys before it’s too late and your prune juice stock tanks on NASDAC. I really mean it: it’s the best show in town. You’ll see….

Double dose of Danielle Miraglia and Allen Estes tonight

Perhaps you saw Danielle Miraglia and Allen Estes at this year’s critically acclaimed Cape Ann Winter Solstice.  These two extraordinarily talented singer/songwriters reunite tonight on Cape Ann TV Channel 12 at 6:30, then LIVE at the Rhumbline tonight at 8.  A perfect way to spend the mid-week evening!
