Gloucester’s Joe Langhan (Food Network founder) brings his world-class pastrami to Beverly tomorrow night
Many of you know Joe Langhan from his work producing the Souls of the Sea videos. What you may not know is that he’s a founder of the Food Network and created its signature show Emeril Live. A couple of years ago, Joe brought world-class NY pastrami to Boston (see Globe article). Tomorrow (FRI 8/11) he’s bringing his famous Beantown Pastrami right down the road to Beverly for a pop-up at our Beverly Blues Series.
If you know us, you’ll know that we love pulling what may seem like disparate people together for an unusually fun night (e.g., book signings with music, music with stand-up comedy, comedy with dinner, etc.)
It’s hard to predict just how much fun tomorrow’s show will be as we bring together Blues Hall of Famer, Joe Moss from Chicago and the last prophet of the funky Texas blues The Willie J. Laws Band for an exceptional night of music hosted by WZLX Music Director Carter Alan (who will sign his new book The Decibel Diaries at the show).
Add Beantown Pastrami’s world-class, hand-carved, NYC style sandwiches and … well … you just never know what can happen at the most intimate, elegant listening room on Boston’s North Shore. Get tickets here (cheaper on-line!)
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!
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!
You don’t want to miss this one. Get tickets 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.
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.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Holidays, and Wishing All Our Readers a New Year Filled with Peace, Hope, and Joy

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.
Just in case you didn’t know, the Amero Family Christmas is a Gloucester tradition and it’s coming back to the Rhumb Line next Wednesday 12/21. You can get a taste of the fun tomorrow (SUNDAY) morning at 9AM when Curtain Up host Aurelia Nelson welcomes Fly, Linda & J.B. Amero into her studio — and you just never know what will happen when those folks get together. Tune in for some outrageous musical fun!
Here’s a sampler of some of Fly’s Christmas songs.
