When’s the last time you sat this close to a Rock Star who played Woodstock?

This Friday, you can sit a couple of feet from Legendary Rock drummer Corky Laing of MOUNTAIN and WEST, BRUCE & LAING right down the road in Beverly at 9 Wallis.  Friday’s show kicks off of Corky’s U.S. tour, having just come back from Europe.

You’ll be insanely close in a comfortable chair at a table — and you can have a beer, wine or specialty cocktail with vodka, gin, rum or whiskey made right here in Gloucester by our friends at Ryan & Wood Distilleries!  Plus 9 Wallis is fully air-conditioned (I know you could care less today, but by Friday, you’ll feel differently).  GET TICKETS HERE!

Here’s a taste of what you can expect along with a video of Corky with Mountain at Woodstock (just  a few years ago 😉

Are you going to be awake @ midnight 2017?

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.

 

SEVEN DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS CAROL COUNTDOWN: BEAUTIFUL NEW CHRISTMAS CLASSIC FROM MICHAEL FRANTI – LOVE WILL FIND A WAY

“Love Will Find A Way” from Michael Franti and Spearhead. 

More from Michael Franti & Spearhead–not Christmas songs–but because he makes fun and beautiful music videos 🙂

EIGHT DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS CAROL COUNTDOWN: (Edited) RAMONES – MERRY CHRISTMAS (I DON’T WANT TO FIGHT TONIGHT)

Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want to Fight Tonight)

Addendum – My husband Tom shares a photo that he took of Joey Ramone. His band The Atlantics were opening for the Ramones at The Club in Cambridge in May 1976. I think a bootleg album was made that night and you can see the Atlantics on the marquis in the first minute of the video.ramones-at-the-club-in-cambridge

TWELVE DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS CAROL COUNTDOWN: THE KILLERS’ NEW CHRISTMAS ALBUM “DON’T WASTE YOUR WISHES” FOR (RED)

rs-the-killers-20a51a57-5f3f-473a-99dc-86e6d7d4d679Annually since 2006 the Killers have released a holiday-themed new single for Bono’s charity (RED), which strives to end aids in Africa. The band has collected all ten songs on a new website and Christmas album Don’t Waste Your Wishes, released on December 9th. Featured guests on the singles include Toni Halliday, Elton John, Jimmy Kimmel, Neil Tennant, and Dawes. The songs are melodic, quirky, comic, provocative, some a little dark, some beautifully moving, and the videos for each, always entertaining.

My favorite, “A Great Big Sled,”

“Joel the Lump of Coal”

“The Cowboy’s Christmas Ball”

There’s no video yet for this year’s single “I’ll be Home For Christmas” but here is a link to the website where you can hear it and all ten songs.

Don’t Despair – Good BALCONY seats still available for Friday’s Show in Beverly

Yes, if you go here, it looks like our Tribute to Johnny Cash – The Man In Black Show is almost sold out. That’s because most of the Orchestra seats are already taken. But you can still get a great seat in the Balcony HERE! Many of the seats in this picture are still available. Look how close you are–and the sound is GREAT up here!

Paul Simon, Art Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, Robert McNamara, Norman Mailer, Maxwell Taylor & lots more

We just voted. It was easy. No lines. We understand if you don’t like the choices. You probably seldom do. But you still have to choose. We all do. That’s kind of the point of a democracy. We never get exactly what we want, but we all work together for the good of our country as a whole.

More importantly, there are MASS referendum measures on the ballot today that will most likely affect your life far more than the new president will. I woke up today with this song in my head. It’s Paul Simon’s satire of Bob Dylan and politics all wrapped up into one fun song on Simon & Garfunkel’s mega-hit album Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme (all of which we have growing in our garden). Listen, laugh, vote and feel better! Lyrics below the video…

I been Norman Mailered, Maxwell Taylored
I been John O’Hara’d, McNamara’d
I been Rolling Stoned and Beatled till I’m blind
I been Ayn Randed, nearly branded
Communist, ’cause I’m left-handed
That’s the hand I use, well, never mind

I been Phil Spectored, resurrected
I been Lou Adlered, Barry Sadlered
Well, I paid all the dues I want to pay
And I learned the truth from Lenny Bruce
And all my wealth won’t buy me health
So I smoke a pint of tea a day

I knew a man, his brain was so small
He couldn’t think of nothing at all
Not the same as you and me
He doesn’t dig poetry
He’s so unhip that when you say Dylan
He thinks you’re talking about Dylan Thomas
Whoever he was
The man ain’t got no culture
But it’s alright, ma, everybody must get stoned

I been Mick Jaggered and silver daggered
Andy Warhol, won’t you please come home?
I been mother, father, aunt and uncled
Been Roy Haleed and Art Garfunkeled
I just discovered somebody’s tapped my phone
