This is a tight 4 or 5 piece jump and R&B band – they’ve been together for over 20 years, and this is their first appearance in Gloucester!

Salem News Profiles Gloucester Blues Fest Performer who’s returning to Beverly on Saturday

Check out this insightful profile by Will Broaddus in today’s Salem News of blues star Victor Wainwright and soul star Eli “Paperboy” Reed, who are sharing the stage on Saturday with local blues icons Ricky King Russell and Parker Wheeler — right down the road at Beverly’s Larcom Theatre.

If you missed Victor Wainwright‘s rousing performance at the 2014 Gloucester Blues Festival (he got the first standing ovation of the day) you’ve got your chance to make up for that on Saturday — and if you did see him, you’re probably dying to experience the power of his music in an intimate, acoustically spectacular venue.  But don’t wait ’till the last minute.  Tickets are going fast.  Get them here.

Here are a couple of videos to get you psyched up for Saturday’s show:

“Sax” Gordon @ The Dave Sag’s Blues Party…The joint will be jumpin at The Rhumb Line tonight! 8:30-11:30pm 10.15.2015

Dave says,

We’re going to reach terminal velocity this week, so if you got plans to stay home and iron your underwear, better go to confession and plan on destroying your liver instead.
Firstly, Mr. Gordon “Sax” Beadle returns to the Rhumb Line stage this Thursday. My favorite guest star, if you haven’t seen or heard of him, you must crawl out from under that rock that you’ve been hiding and put on your sailing shoes! This guy will tear your tonsils out with his own unique brand of saxophone mayhem. Always gets the crowd going wild. Not only that, but Ed “Ed” Scheer, my favorite four-on the-floor frontman and drummbler, will be holding down the beat and handling vocal duties. Furthermore, Mr. Pete Henderson makes a rare appearance as a foil and catarrhist of note. I can’t wait!

British Invasion rock stars, Badfinger, kick off GIMMELIVE’s highly anticipated third season at Beverly’s fully-restored, historic Larcom Theatre, performing ONE NIGHT ONLY.

Still led by founder Joey Molland, who performed on George Harrison’s “All Things Must Pass” album and John Lennon’s “Imagine” album, Badfinger’s high energy concerts continue to thrill audiences world-wide.

Don’t miss Badfinger’s only Boston area stop on their U.S. Tour at Beverly’s intimate, acoustically spectacular Larcom Theatre.

Brooks Young Band will open the show. Hailing from Salem, MA, Brooks Young Band saturate their songs with rock and roll edge and blues feel, going for a direct, emotional and powerful sonic blend.
Brooks’ searing guitar leads and soulful vocal performances lock in perfectly with the solid rhythm section, creating an inspirational and uplifting sonic texture along the lines of influential performers such as Eric Clapton and Dave Matthews.

“John talked very kind of Liverpool docker talk…George was a bit more of a perfectionist. John seemed a little more relaxed”


Cha-Chi Loprete was gracious enough to give us permission to post his extraordinary interview with British Rock Star, Joey Molland that aired yesterday morning on his famous WZLX radio show, Breakfast With The Beatles.

Joey tells some fascinating stories about his life, what it was like working with John Lennon on “Imagine” and George Harrison on “All Things Must Pass” along with other momentous musical experiences, including being part of the Concert for Bangladesh.  And the whole thing starts off with a brand-new version of Badfinger’s hit “Come And Get It” by The Hollywood Vampires (Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, Joe Perry and guests including Paul McCartney, Robby Krieger, Dave Grohl and others).

You can see Joey Molland and Badfinger this Saturday, right down the road at Beverly’s intimate, acoustically spectacular Larcom Theatre with Salem’s rising stars Brooks Young Band opening.  Good seats are still available.  Get tickets here.

Speaking of the Concert for Bangladesh, here’s a short recap of how some of the world’s biggest rock stars came together in 1971 for THE concert that set the standard for all future fund-raising efforts.

An Acoustic Evening with Ken Yates & Fozzie Hill ~ October 16, 2015

Friday, October 16 at 7:00pm Manchester Community Center 40 Beach St, Manchester, Massachusetts 01944 Tickets Available
Single Tree Music Presents:

Toronto singer-songwriter, Ken Yates, and Gloucester singer-songwriter, Fozzie Hill, share a very special double bill of songs and stories at the Manchester Community Center in picturesque Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts.

Guests are welcome to bring their own snacks and beverages to this performance.

About Ken Yates:

Born and Raised in London, Ontario, Ken Yates moved to Boston to study songwriting at Berklee College of Music. It was there that he developed his skills as a songwriter, releasing his first album, “The Backseat EP”, and received the opportunity to play a song for one of his biggest influences, John Mayer. Mayer then posted a full page blog about Yates’ ability as a writer stating, “Ken Yates wrote a song called ‘I Don’t Wanna Fall In Love’ this song moved me when I first heard it and still does today”. Yates’ EP received high critical acclaim, leading to a slew of online covers from fans. He has toured with many notable names including veteran singer/songwriter and mentor, Livingston Taylor, Sister Hazel, Peter Katz, and Liz Longley and has songs in heavy rotation on Sirius XM’s The Coffee House where he was nominated for The Coffee House Songwriter Discovery of the Year. He was recently chosen as The 2014 Colleen Peterson Award winner by the Ontario Arts Council for his song “The One That Got Away”.

“Want to hear a great song? (I mean a REALLY great song?)” John Mayer, one forty plus taking about Yate’s “I Don’t Want to Fall in Love”

“Ken Yates’ music is solid as stone and clear as mountain air he proves the future is in very good shape” Livingston Taylor

About Fozzie Hill:

Fozzie Hill is about as authentic as one can be. Born and forever rooted in Gloucester, her ambition from the age of seven, when she first remembers being drawn into the deep mystery of the human voice, has been to ” release that power inside” of herself.

When friends and neighbors insisted that she share her gift, and after a dear friend challenged her to learn three songs on guitar, and when she did, gifted her with that guitar- (her first,) she began performing as a young woman in the 1970 and 80s in Boston at the Cantab Lounge, Johnny D’s, the Tam.

Now, decades later, with a CD (“AKA Fozzie, Alberta Hill,” 2003) produced by Geoffrey Richon and Rose Osborne and many of those Gloucester friends who “cared enough to get under my skin,” Fozzie is again performing her intuitive, soulful music, as a popular regular at Gloucester’s Rhumbline with her bass player Wolf Ginandes.

She turns a barroom into a listening room with her own covers and original songs influenced by a diverse array of musicians such as Lucinda Williams, Bob Dylan, Donovan, John Sebastian, Ferron, and the Rolling Stones.

Boston-area bluesman Larry Carsman recently said of Fozzie Hill, ” Count me in as new member of Fozzie’s fan club. She was so magical, I felt transformed.”

dave sags

This Thursday at the Rhumb Line,I’m really bubbling over due to the return of Ms. Danielle Miraglia. You’re in for a treat! She was here once before and afterwards Fred had to scrub the ceiling to get the footprints off. She’s a really great singer. And she’s bringing along an intense melange of players.
First, there’s Mr. Blob Enik, spluttering paint-by-numbers glitarist, who often works with Mari Martin or even Madhouse. Then there’s Mr. Jim Gambino,,of Swinging Steaks fame, as our speculative multi-fingered keyboard whiz.Thumping handled by a truly great drummer, Mr. Steve Bankuti. I’ll be wheezing in the corner, trying to keep up. A truly magical night.Hours: 8:30 to 11:30.
