Hello everyone!
Fly and I are excited to come together in song this week in support of Pathways for Children, a local nonprofit whose mission — to educate, empower, and support local children and their families — is vital to our community. Every year, Pathways partners with local businesses for its annual toy and book drive, and has distributed over 1,000 toys to local children & families enrolled in their programming. This drive is special because it is truly neighbors helping neighbors: all toys and books donated stay in our North Shore community. So please, join us this Wednesday – come for the tunes, stay for the good cheer, and if you can, bring a new, unwrapped toy or book to donate!
See you there, and thanks! – Marina

Sax Gordon Returns to The Rhumb Line for Dave Sag’s Blues Party this Thursday 8:30pm 12.17.2015

dave sag bw rl

 

Well, just in time for the holiday seasoning, let’s get behind the one and only exploding Takata® airbag of the blues, Mr. Gordon “Sax” Beadle. With his projectile format and penchant for snake charming, this is the guy to take you into the Twilight Zone. Make you forget about that credit card bill due in January. He’s bringing along that nun-eating master of the qatar, Mr. Mike DiBari and the world’s foremost dribbler and fontman, Mr. Ed “Ed” Scheer to boot. Could be my ultimate agglomeration. I love working with these guys and I promise I’ll be better next year. Honest! Really, don’t miss this one! After This Thursday, We’ll be off until January 7, when the good Old Salty Jazz Band returns for some musical mayhem.

Dave…

National Christmas Tree & Mass Christmas Tree

Had a wonderful time walking around DC last night in short sleeves.  Temp as about 65 degrees.  The Lincoln Memorial was as inspiring as ever — this monument never loses its power.

We thought FOBs might like to see a shot of the National Christmas Tree and the smaller Massachusetts tree that was among trees from all states surrounding the National tree.

Ricky “King” Russell Tonight! Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb Line Thursday 8:30pm 12.10.2015

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

Got a brand new guy to unwrap on you this Thursday: Mr. Johnny BlueHorn neé Morriconi or something like that. Been hearing about this dude for years, had a chance to play with him recently and he just knocked me out. Get this: he toots the trumpet and sings and basically sends one into the stratosphere. Love his toons. A real showman! Not only that, but our old buddy Ricky “Burger King” Russell will be returning on guitar and vocals after a long recovery from cosmetic surgery. I’ve missed him! Hope I recognize him! Drum chores filled in by the spattering pile driver hisself: Mr. Ephraim Lowell. Or is it E-frame? E-mail? I dunno, but he does. I’ll be there, too!

Shop Local for a New Orleans Experience & a Holiday Tribute to a Music Icon

Henri Smith for the New Orleans Peoples Project – taken after Allen Toussaint’s funeral in New Orleans.

Vickie and I applaud everyone who promotes shopping locally and truly appreciate people who buy tickets to local concerts as gifts for Christmas, Hanukkah, etc.  This Saturday at 7pm we present our third New Orleans Christmas concert at Beverly’s fully-restored, acoustically stellar Larcom Theatre starring Gloucester’s Henri Smith and featuring renowned trumpeter Stanton Davis (who performed with Henri at Celebrate Gloucester 2010) and Grammy-winner Amadee Castenell on Sax & Flute.  This year, Henri’s full brass band (complete with Tuba) will perform a special tribute to one of Henri’s mentors, Allen Toussaint, who died last month while on tour in Madrid.  Tickets are available here.

Check out this video of Henri with Allen Toussaint that I shot last year in Allen’s dressing room at Berklee Performance Center. Allen explains how Henri serves as a New Orleans ambassador — and also has very kind words for Amadee, saying “When Amadee was in New Orleans we didn’t leave home without him.  He’s our favorite saxophonist!”  Then he reveals why Amadee no longer lives in New Orleans.

This will be an emotional show for Vickie and me.  We hope you’ll join us in a Christmas Second Line Parade through the aisles of Beverly’s Larcom Theatre.

looking forward to this night. More details as we get close. ~ Fly

RUSTED ROOT PLUS ROOTS OF CREATION This Thursday Dec. 3rd 8pm doors open at 7pm @ The Cabot in Beverly MA.

rusted root

 

PRESENTED BY M.E. PRODUCTIONS IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE CABOT

World rockers RUSTED ROOT have been bringing people together since the early ’90s. With undeniably infectious anthems like “Send Me On My Way” and “Ecstasy,” they’ve captured hearts and minds while spreading their peaceful message around the world. The quintessential live band, Pittsburgh’s Rusted Root continues to perform high energy shows around the globe to sold out crowds.

Having collaborated for two decades, Rusted Root has honed the perfect combination of musical intuition, freedom and virtuosity, which has allowed them to organically shape their music into it’s own distinct and undeniable vision. With eight albums under their belt, over three million records sold and countless nights on the road, Rusted Root transcends age, cultures and musical styles.The members of Rusted Root are drawn to and have explored virtually every form of music. “I am very inspired vocally by anything from Indian to African to Middle Eastern sounds and scales having grown up with a lot of Hebrew music” Liz Berlin notes. Michael Glabicki cites the Bee Gees, Elvis Costello, Neil Young, Toni Childs, Black Keys, Black Sabbath and various Afro Pop music as among his influences. Combining a jam aesthetic and a global mindset, Rusted Root combines World influences into a transcontinental brew. The powerhouse ensemble’s hypnotic live performances have allowed them to tour alongside Santana, Dave Matthews Band, The Allman Brothers Band, Plant & Page and many others.

Rusted Root brings down the house every time they hit the stage, and we’re proud to welcome them to the Cabot!JUST ADDED: ROOTS OF CREATION!

“From addictive reggae pop songs to consciously charged roots rhythms and berserk electronic improvisations, the grace and precision with which ROC executes their bass-heavy works is overwhelming. Their roots are tinged with rock, their rock brushed with electronica, and they’re as likely to dash off into a 10-minute guitar-led groove as they are to perform righteous vocal songs that resonate like the roots-rock classics of old” wrote Homegrown Music Network.

2013 New England Music and Cider Magazine Award Winners, Roots of Creation, mixes roots and dub reggae with guitar-heavy rock and electronica, all wrapped around lead singer/guitarist Brett Wilson’s introspective and consciousness-laden lyrics.

The band is raising the bar at every performance with the intent of delivering a true rock show cleverly disguised as a reggae dance bash with psychedelic and energizing lights.  The techno-beam and LED tube lighting increases the already high-energy sound that Roots of Creation (RoC) brings to their audiences.

RoC’s newest release, Live at Bella Terra Festival (. . . And Stoned at Church), captures the band, during a 10 show tour, from the east coast to Chicago to Eastern Canada in August 2011.  The stop at Bella Terra in Stephentown, New York allowed RoC to perform a high-profile slot directly after the headliner, The Mickey Hart Band.  As thousands of fans poured from the main stage over to the late-night tent, RoC delivered a truly unique musical experience with thumping reggae bass lines, piercing guitar licks, and an electronic-dub sound only this band could create.  RoC travels with their own lighting designer, who put on a show of techno beams and LED tubes to match the music and vibe of Bella Terra as lead singer Brett Wilson demanded the crowds’ attention with his soulful lyrics and revolutionary calls.

Roots of Creation is made up of original members guitarist/lead singer Brett Wilson, keyboard player Tal Pearson, and drummer Mike Chadinha.  RoC is currently touring with a rotating arsenal of bassists, horns, and auxiliary members to blow the audience away by enhancing the overall sound and energy. The band formed in 2001 with Wilson, Pearson, Chadinha and former bassists while attending Franklin Pierce College and began touring heavily in 2004. RoC also tours with a rotating arsenal of horns to blow the audience away by enhancing the overall sound and energy.
