Chris Stovall Brown joins The Dave Sag’s Blues Party Tonight 8:30pm @ The Rhumb Line 3.23.2017 ~ Put on your dancin shoes!

The Weal of fortune spins around this Thursday to land on Mr. Chris “Stovall” Brown again. One of your favorite glitar commandos and rust bucket vocallists, Chris and I often play together at O’Rielly’s (more on that later). He’s truly killer and a grate stage performer.

No bogosity here.We’re wealing in the biblically named Mr. Ephraim Lowell to help out on the skins. BTW, I don’t hear those alien voices much anymore, but I’m gonna wear my tinfoil hat anyhow, just for practice.

The ever so wonderful Charlee Bianchini graces the Rhumb
Line stage this week with charm and with beautiful music.
My regret is I cannot myself attend. Our touring group
collectively picked up a nasty bug upon return from Cozumel
last week. Allen Estes will kindly step in as host. This will
prove to be a great chemistry, for sure. I wouldn’t miss it! ~ Fly
Dinner with great music!
*Each week features a special, invited musical guest
The Rhumb Line Kitchen…
…now features Janet Brown with some new and healthy ideas!
Plus a fine, affordable wine menu!

Women of Essex exhibit at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum opens this weekend

Slated to run in conjunction with National Women’s History Month, Women of Essex Stories to Share, will be on display most weekends from March 18-April 29. The show is hosted by Essex Historical Society and Shipbuilding Museum. Lee adds:

“The motivation for this exhibit was the recognition that, while our emphasis at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum has been on shipbuilding and the men involved with it, there were many significant roles of women in the community. Hence the exhibit Women of Essex – Stories to Share. This exhibit features about a dozen women that we are featuring individually in this first phase of the project. To help scope this effort, we are focusing this phase on women who are no longer with us. These include the women that were instrumental in building the first meeting house, one of the first woman auctioneers in the country, a female professional baseball player, a woman who was a motivator behind several town projects, several individuals active in the arts, and even an enslaved woman. There will be collections of several other groups of women, namely teachers and restaurateurs, an Essex mainstay.”

Not only that, but she’s dragging in Mr. Mike DiBari, fabulous gootarist who just won the 2017 Swiss Kriss® Award for excellence in downloading. Also, drummer to the gods, Mr. Steve Bankuti. Let’s get funky! See you there!

Nichole’s Picks 3/4 + 3/5

Pick #1:  Cultural Festival at Harborlight in Beverly

I am pretty excited about this event.  First of all, it is free.  A suggested donation of $10 per family would be appreciated, but is not necessary.

Children will be given a “passport” to go on tour through several different countries (classrooms).  Along the way, they will make crafts and be introduced to a bit of the cultural that makes each country special.  At 11:15 all guests will be invited upstairs to watch the live entertainment.  There will be a Lion Dance troupe and a group named Ballet Folklorico Colombiano Bajucol who will perform three separate cultural dances.  Harborlight students will also sing some songs that they have learned in Mandarin and Spanish…along with American Sign Language.   Baked goods will also be available for purchase.
