Dave says,

Well, I’m sitting around the house waiting for the snow to stop and my codpiece to dry, with Weal Of Fortune oozing out of my Elsie D. screen (no sound) and three martinis under my Kuyper belt, biting my toenails and begging for a break.
Rheumer has it that there’s another storm coming on Thursday, but I’m willing to shake my shaman rattle and toss the dicey bones on another outcome: The arrival of Ms. Diane Blue to our stage.  OMG, it’s been a while since Miss D., the Octomom® of the blues has been in these parts, and I’m so glad to have her back. Not only that, but she’s bringing along a killer band with some new people to tintinnabulate your eardrums with the latest ghastly sounds.
Firstly, there’s Bobby Gus, a veritable Boston mainstay, on catarrh. First time. Add Joe Bargar, one of my heroes, on keys. Then trip over Mr. Steve Bankuti, who never heard of me, on eggbeaters. First time, too. I’ve been dying to meet and play with these people. I need the thirty bucks. But, seriously, folks, I’m expecting to have a rousing good time waffling through the entire blue spectrum. C’mon out and dance!

The best way to support local musicians is to go to their big shows — like TONIGHT

When your favorite local band gets to open for a multi-platinum, national recording star, the best way to honor that opportunity is to go to the show.  And you can do that by bopping on down to road to  Beverly’s Larcom Theatre TONIGHT at 8pm.  Good seats are still left to see  Gary Backstrom Band open for John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band.  Get those seats RIGHT HERE.  Some of the best available seats are in the balcony GET THEM HERE.

And there’s a wonderful personal connection going on at this show.  Gary’s drummer Mike Doyle studied at Berklee with Jackie Santos, who plays drums for Beaver Brown Band. This will be the first time student and teacher have performed on the same stage in a while.  ANT THEY’LL BE HOT!

In fact, John Cafferty and “Tunes” sound better and have more energy now than they did in this 1984 video.

Wake up by 9AM on Sunday to get the scoop on Matt Damon’s “Manchester By The Sea” movie filming

Aurelia Nelson

This just in from our friend Aurelia Nelson, host of “Curtain Up” Sundays at 9am on North Shore 104.9.

“This Sunday’s guest is Chris Palermo of Mass Movie Mavens. We will be talking about upcoming film projects happening on the North Shore, including the latest on “Manchester by the Sea” being produced by Matt Damon and now starring Casey Affleck.”

Worth getting up for — even if you stayed up late with John Cafferty & the Beaver Brown Band at the Larcom tomorrow night.  Don’t forget our local favorites, The Gary Backstrom Band is opening.  What better way to support them than to bop down the road to Beverly and revel in their opportunity to open for a multi-platinum recording star!

 

 

Tonight at Katrina’s ~ Inge Berge Filling in for Toni Ann 7-10pm 1.29.2015

toniann-ae

Dear Friends,
Once upon time there was a local singer songwriter who got a steady Thursday night local gig.
This was very exciting for her to play weekly with some of the finest players in her little town. One January
Thusday night she had planned to play with her good friend, and, have for the first time, her cousin
as her guest!
Sometimes the best layed plans mean nothing…this singer songer got the flu and couldn’t
perform!
Luckily her friend, Inge Berge, put on his superhero cape and saved the night! THE END

ib c-001
At Katrina’s tonight 1/29 from 7-10PM Inge Berge will be covering for me, so please show him your support and I’ll see you next week!

The Good Ole Salty Jazz Band at Dave Sag’s Blues Party – 8:30 PM to 11:30 PM Thursday 1.29.2015

dave-sag-rl-4-3-2014

 

I’m late again! Poetic licence had expired and had to wait in line for *** tetragrammation**** to re-up my status. So let’s go!

I can’t wait for you to hear this fabulous band: The Good old (Sea)Salty Jazz Band. All 35 of them are showing up on Thursday to wail away your blues!
But seriously, folks there’s only 8 to 11 of us,depending on who has a doctor’s appointment at the time. Looks like there’ll be 10 of us this evening. We’ve been holding SRO concerts at The Rose Baker Senior Center for years, and now that our record sales have gone platinum, it’s time to play the big time! So grab a date (or some prunes), put on those soft shoes and beat me, daddy eight to the bar! and don’t forget to try one of Jeff, the bartender’s famous Metamucil-infused cocktails for the smell of success. Ahhhh.

The Ole Salty Jazz Band  play great music  at Rose Baker a few times a month. This was shot on  Monday March 19th.

Ron has developed a serious fan base around here.  Why?

Trenel Cove, circa 1915

a8357_082wmTrenel Cove is where a ferry went between Gloucester Island and the mainland. Ferry Street, off of Washington Street, goes there. Today, the Route 128 A. Piatt Andrew Bridge crosses the Annisquam from the hill just behind Trenel Cove. Clammers still pull up their skiffs onto the beach at the head of the cove. This Trenel Cove photo is going to hang in…..Trenel Cove!

Appears almost sold out, but there really are plenty of good seats left

Balcony Seat

View from Balcony Center Row H Seat 11 — still available here

If you’ve been following us for a while, you know we always warn you when a concert is about to sell out.  A quick glance at the seating chart for next Saturday’s John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band concert at Beverly’s Larcom Theatre, looks like it’s almost sold out.  But here’s the thing: there are lots of excellent seats left.  Most importantly, every seat at the Larcom has a great view and the sound is PERFECT!  For this show, the best available seats are in the Balcony and you can get them here.

This will be a special show, in part because local Rock Star, Gary Backstrom, is opening with his excellent band — and there’s a wonderful personal connection at play too: Gary’s drummer, Mike Doyle, studied at Berklee with Jackie Santos of the Beaver Brown Band.  You don’t want to wait until it really is sold out and miss this drummer’s reunion do you?

You can see Mike showing off at 3:23 in the video below, of Gary Backstrom Band at Harbor Loop.

And just in case you’ve forgotten the cult hit Eddie and the Cruisers (for which John Cafferty wrote and sang his hit “On The Dark Side”, here it is (with the movie’s co-star and Beaver Brown member, Michael “Tunes” Antunes on sax).

 

Mari Martin tonight @ Dave Sag’s Blues Party 8:30pm to 11:30pm 1.22.2015

Dave says,

 

Well, I’m a little late this time around due to complications with cosmetic hippocampus surgery,but not to worry, the voices have all gone, like a pile of popcorn by my feet, eaten by unseen pigeons. Also, the lineup hadn’t been solidified till now, so let the nailbiting cease!
Let’s welcome back Ms. Mari Martin and her oversized vocal pipes to our musical carousel of a stage this week. I know, I know, she just played here last Saturday with her rootin-tootin band of musical outlaws, but this time around we’re really mixing it up.

Y
First, throw  Mr. Mike DiBari, glitarist deluxe, a veteran ack-ack gunner, into a large pot. Then add the pulsations and random cacklings of that tonsorially-challenged timekeeper; Mr. Steevee Chaggaris. Fold in two quarts of vodka-infused bass by yours truly, then pour in 180 pounds of fatback organisms and keyboard stylings of the prolific Mr. Mark Retallack. Beat well. Strain through a felt hat. Insert large funnel into trepanned hole in skull.Pour. Ahhh…. Honey, I’m home……
