Dennis Brennan tonight! Dave’s Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb Line 8:30pm 1.26.2017

dave sag

OK, girls, this is it. You’ve been tearing at my clothes amid great wailing and gnashing of tooth ,begging me to bring him back, so , here he is: Mr. Dennis Brennan. Truly a national treasure, undiscovered and under-appreciated, this cat writes some great toons, can sing his ass off, plays a mean harmonica and has a great hat collection, to boot. I mean this! Hopefully I’ll get him to sneak in some of his self-penned doozies between the really cool blues he’s known for.

The commodious Steve Sadler, everybody’s favorite musical paint box, provides smooth backup on guitar, as does Mr. Chris Rivelli, former Broomful ‘o Blooze drummambulist and sneezeguard. I’ve been practicing all week!

His music is more than soulful voice and slick guitar. It’s
more than an evening’s entertainment – tho entertained you
most certainly shall be. Each song tells a moving story that
draws from the roots and depths of American history. From
the human spirit. From the heart. The legendary, Grammy-
nominated Jon Butcher is among us. Enough said. ~ Fly

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.

One of my all-time faves, Sasquatch, a.k.a Paul Cohan
graces us with his illustrious presence this week at the Rhumb

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.
