What Time Is It Mr. Fox (Trio) with Brian King, Nathan Cohen and Joe Cardoza with surprise guests Megan McKenzie and Eileen Little ~ Brunch @ Foreign Affairs Wine Bar & Bistro

 

 

There were a lot of familiar faces for this Sunday Brunch. This was my second time back and I can’t wait to go back again. The service, atmosphere food and their live music is the best. If you haven’t been I suggest you do. Check out the link below to see the menu and what’s happening. They have music on Sundays during brunch and 1-4. Different musicians weekly. Call ahead for reservations because it room fills up fast in advance.

A Half Milestone

HalfMileWalk5701wm

Today all systems were go: 33°F, daylight, dry pavement, and a craving to walk some distance without my cane. Janet took the cane at the front door and we walked at a medium pace to my favorite animal sculpture park. After stopping to take a few photos, we walked back home. Total distance: One half mile using no cane or other walking aid.

As the journey started thirteen months ago, I couldn’t roll onto my side in a hospital bed. I graduated to a wheelchair, then a walker, followed by a cane, and now two legs. I’m currently scouting around for a longer full–milestone trail. (Photo by Janet).

State House a Work of Art ~ Inside and Out

MCCawards5609wm MCCawards5613wm copy

Most of our group went into the State House thru the General Hooker entrance. Escorted by Catherine Ryan, I entered via the accessible Bowdoin Street door, because it has a ramp instead of stairs. Once inside and past security, there are elevators aplenty. The first thing I wanted to see was one of the two large cod sculptures. By chance, we immediately ran into our State Senator, Bruce Tarr, who took the time to give us a short tour. Art in all media was everywhere, including the 1798 “new” State House itself.

Winter Zydeco Party with Amy Nicole and Zydeco Soul @ The Rhumb Line 2.24.2015

zydeco

 

 

Are you tired of all this snow? Are you getting a case of those “Winter Blues”? Well then we’ve got the cure for YOU!

On Tuesday February 24th at 9PM Gloucester’s very own The Rhumb Line will be serving up a hot heaping portion of Louisiana Zydeco to melt all of those blues away!

Yup. Hailing all the way from Opelousas, Louisiana, Amy Nicole and Zydeco Soul are going to share their sweet Cajun Zydeco sounds will all of us here on Cape Ann.

Gary Gorczyca

I got to see and hear a special preview of this band last night at the Monday Night Open Jam @ The Rhumb line and man they were good. You wanna dance…well it will be hard not to with this lively fun music.!

Let’s show our friends from warm climates how we New Englanders Party in Winter

Booker T’s new 2 CD/DVD set

Tomorrow (Sat 2/21) we welcome Memphis Soul legend and Stax recording artist, Booker T. Jones and his hot young band to the Larcom Theatre for his only New England stop on this U.S. tour.  Even though they’ve toured the world, I’ll bet they haven’t seen this much snow on the ground very often — and probably never in the Boston area.

We’re also offering a very limited number of VIP packages that include an intimate meet & greet with Booker T. before the show (just a few people) along with some wicked good gifts, including:

Get the VIP package (more details here) and be sure to tell Booker T. how much you appreciate his trek up here during our worst winter in a very long time and prove to him that nothing can keep us from enjoying great music!  Opening the show are local favorites Sarah Seminski and Eric Reardon.

Check out this video of Booker T. with Gary Clark, Jr (one of the guests on his new CD):

And here’s Sarah Seminski & Eric Reardon performing “Try A Little Tenderness” at the Larcom back in November (a song Booker T. recorded with Otis Redding when they were at Stax Records together).  Get tickets here.

AMIRA & SAM – Boston- One Night Only Feb 21 Meet the director and star- next week Salem

Meg Montagnino Associate Producer of this film-

Cat Ryan submits-

image006

Single-screen movie houses whether intimate (Cape Ann Cinema and Stage) or grand (Ziegfield) are a luxury. Seeing a movie in a place like that is an event. The really good ones can make you feel like you’re about to see a masterpiece. And then there are movies that must be seen on a big screen and that invite a shared cultural experience. Sometimes both. You just have to leave the house. If you missed the recent Gloucester premier for the movie Amira & Sam at Cape Ann Cinema, get ready to mark your calendar for two more Massachusetts premiers. The movie will be shown this weekend ONE NIGHT ONLY for a very special Boston screening and again next week in Salem, details for both as follows:

 

First up—BOSTON. This Saturday, February 21, join writer-director Sean Mullin and star Dina Shihabi for a One Night Only screening Amira and Sam. Mullin works out of LA and is promoting his debut feature. AMIRA & SAM – Boston – One Night Only

Dave Sag’s Blues Party Tonight with Evan Goodrow 8:30-11:30 The Rhumb Line 2.19.2015

dave sag rl mo

 

Dave says,

OK girls, lets get here pronto for the U.F.O. mass hysteria sighting of that age-old teen idol: Mr. Evan Goodrow.  Front man, Qatarist mais non oui, oui,This guy will have you rocking on your crutches with his marvelous renditions of cult classics, nouveau blues, and Transylvanian folk songs. I sure do admire this man’s dogged nerve and rubber determination. E.G. is one of our faves around these parts, and a splendid show is suspected. We’ve hauled in Mr. Benny Benson, Our Irish Ace of Pace®,  afloat since Dunkirk, to handle the the breast-beating. I’ll be on base, hoping for a sacrifice fly. So, put on that Hai-Karate® or Stetson™ and/or wrap dress (or Chinese shoes )and dance the night away while you think about yourself!

Blizzard Valentine’s Dinner

Valentines5596wmValentines5600wm

 As the blizzard started, we walked over to the Emerson Inn for a s
pecial dinner (it’s always special there). I had the pan seared scallops with lentils and wine sauce. It was delicious, but because of what chemo has done to my taste buds, I ate sparingly. The leftovers will make great omelettes at home. It was nice to dress up. The place is not as formal as my outfit indicates.

Janet, my Valentine: She had the Rack of Lamb, rubbed with brown sugar and dijon mustard, served with a Port Wine reduction. She cleaned the plate with a simile on her face. Leftovers: 4 bare lamb bones.

“Tenderness” – the perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day

OK, it’s gonna snow on Valentine’s day — maybe another foot or more.  You could amp up the #Snanger OR you could chill by the fire and take your sweetie pie to see Booker T. Jones next Saturday (2/21) down the road at Beverly’s Larcom Theatre.

What could be more romantic than a concert with the greatest Hammond B3 groove-master of all time (and a Grammy-winner and Rock n Roll Hall of Famer) in a gorgeous fully-restored, historic theatre, built in 1912 (same year as Fenway Park) with perfect sound?

Well, here’s what’s even more romantic than that … local rising stars Sarah Seminski & Eric Reardon are opening the show.  Here’s a video of them performing “Try A Little Tenderness” at the Larcom back in November.  Now, Otis Redding recorded with Stax Records at the same time as Booker T. & the M.G.’s, who backed Otis on his version of this song.  Romance will just envelope the whole place next Saturday.  Get tickets here.

Dave Sag’s Blues Party This Thursday with J.B. Amero, David Brown and Dave Mattacks 8:30pm 2.12.2015

dave sags 2.12.2015

 

Dave says,

This Thursday! The magnificent reappearance of that Maestro of musical mayhem….Mr. J.B. Amero. Soaked in a strong solution of Merle Haggard and held up by a strong belt of scotch, this cat has the ability to make you spill a tear into your beer without dropping a stitch of laughter, or angst.
More so than most, he really brings this town together,as he has done for many years, despite the fact that his bell-bottoms no longer fit like they used to. He doesn’t need ‘em anymore! We’re also  dragging in Mr. Dave Brown,goo-tarist xtroidinaire and Dave Mattacks, pendulumatic pacemaker to make it all happen.  A very special night! I do hope to see you all there, cuz like Dave Brown says: We’re nothing without you!
