It’s a Feel-Good Weekend for Nineteen Bucks

We all want to feel good.  “So why do we love the Blues?” you ask.  As it turns out, music in general — and sad songs in particular — help us feel better.  Really.  Here are 4 scientific studies on the subject: Science Alert, PLOS, NAI, University of Chicago.

Tomorrow (Saturday) night you have 4 good reasons to feel better … and all 4 are right down the road at Beverly’s intimate, acoustically stellar Larcom Theatre:

  1. The Delta Generators last concert with Craig Rawding fronting the band
  2. Willie J. Laws Band
  3. Danielle Miraglia with special guest Cheryl Arena
  4. All of these blues stars on the same stage raising money to help Harborlight Community Partners prevent homelessness.

What’s not to feel good about?  Tickets starting at only $19.00 are still available here.

Dave says,

Well,I’ve signed up for elective surgery on my flabby elbow skin (hetero-weenisectomy) this Thursday and will be be busy recuperating with a Martini or three, so , in the meantime, why not stop holding your breath and inhale a little bit of Ms. Lisa Marie who will be charging in on her caparisoned horse, lance aboiling ,to skewer you with another night of electro-convulsive blues, and other music. And she’s bringing along the right people. She’s got Johnny Juxo to bang his shoe on the keyboard, “Silverfish” Steve on scratchy catarrh, and Dana “Bonefish” Bonardi on the bangulators. Sounds like a plan. Me, I’ll be showing up late in my black suit, in case you wanna see what I look like when I buy the farm! (minus the formaldehyde).

Here’s an article about the film with some good backstory:

We Are All Market Basket
Food Fight: Inside The Battle for Market Basket documentary tells the dramatic story
By Rachel Forrest

For six weeks in the summer of 2014, we watched the result of a modern Greek family drama unfold.  After a long history of conflict and intrigue,  on July 17, 2014, Arthur T. Demoulas, CEO of Market Basket, was ousted from his position by rival and cousin Arthur S. Demoulas, and because this drama is a modern one, we were  in the audience experiencing  not the heated boardroom discussions but the aftermath of that one decision. We watched and read the news stories as thousands of Market Basket workers walked out in protest to demand that their beloved “Artie T.” be reinstated, with the statement “We Are Market Basket.”  Not content to just watch, many of us became part of the protest, and signing petitions, boycotting the stores, honking in encouragement while driving by parking lots filled with strikers.

Food Fight: Inside The Battle for Market Basket, which premiered at the Boston International Film Festival on April 15, is the story of six weeks in the life of the largest non-union walk-out in U.S.History. Filmmaker Jay Childs and his crew were on the ground filming as soon as the story broke and with Producer Melissa Paly and Tom Bennett, Tom Bennett, Producer, Editor and Writer. They tell the saga of the walk-out and aftermath through on the scene footage, in-depth interviews with the key organizers and everyday Market Basket employees, revealing insider-only communiques and interviews with industry experts. The result is a film filled with drama and emotion — hope, anger, fear — but  most of all, it’s a story about the courage of just regular, hard working people and what they sacrificed to save the company that treated them — 25,000 employees — so well.

The film begins with a bit of background into the rise of Market Basket, the old Greek family and offspring that brought the franchise to success from one small store  in Lowell, MA, in 1917. You’ll learn about the beginning of the controversies in 1990, family infighting, lawsuits and court battles, but the bulk of the film is about the people who work there. Told chronologically which both helps keep the story flowing and heighten the real-life dramatic tension, we meet managers who have been with the company all of their working lives, since age 16, for 40 years and more. We hear the stories of truck drivers and bagboys, teenagers and seniors. They tell us why they love “Artie T.”, all he’s done for them and why, as a result, they want to help bring him back.

Thanks to the filmmakers’ dogged dedication to being right there among the organizers during the strike, we’re party to scenes and plot twists missed in some media coverage. We learn about how the strike affects the families, how the cause took precedent over paying the bills. We also meet key organizers, including Steve Paulenka and Tom Trainor, both during the strike and afterward in revealing interviews in which they explain what is is about the company culture that created a staff who would sacrifice this much to get their leader back. We hear them say “The company gives a little more to me than I’ve given them.” “Artie built this place.” “We don’t mind working hard because of who we work for.” “We can be a part of something greater.”

We also learn about the effects our own actions had on the stores. Many of us were a part of the massive customer boycott of the stores and saw the empty shelves on the news but what you might not know is all of the intrigue that went on during that boycott when some workers still in the stores participated in the resistance with slow-downs and civil disobedience tactics as well as  defiant memos to the reigning leadership, all part of an organized grassroots strategy by 6-8 key people who met each day.

The film follows it all through buyout attempts and lay offs to the dramatic conclusion then follows up with interviews that reflect how we all felt when we heard the news on August 27, 2014 that Artie T. had been reinstated. We don’t hear from Arthur S.,  Felicia Thornton or Jim Gooch, the co-CEOs  during the takeover. We don’t hear from Artie T.  until a speech at the end of the film,  but this story isn’t really about them. Food Fight: Inside The Battle for Market Basket takes us out of the boardroom and talk of money and power and into the lives of regular, hard working,  loyal people — the Market Basket employees –who with all the customers who supported the cause, stood up for what was right, what they believed in, and won. This gripping, touching and inspiring documentary tells us how and why they did just that.

Manatees

I took the boys to swim with the manatees on Friday down in Crystal River, Florida. I did it during a solo camping trip that I took a couple of years  before Thatcher was born and I’ve been looking forward to sharing the experience with them for several years now.  They’re at a pretty good age for some more adventurous experiences and they’re both pretty brave….which makes life fun.  It also seemed appropriate for Earth Day as the very endangered Florida manatees are making a pretty significant come back.

We met up with River Ventures, a company I would gladly recommend to anyone interested…or even those who aren’t, and participated in a quick classroom discussion about manatees and how to safely navigate the waters to snorkel with them, before boarding our boat.  We had a great day and I’m thrilled the boys not only had the experience, but enjoyed it as much as I did.

The material in the short video below is from our trip.  The photos in the gallery are favorites provided by River Ventures from past days.  During Florida’s colder months, the manatee population in that area hang out in a warm spring…which makes for much better viewing and even more up close and personal encounters.  My first time was in the spring and I’ll never forget it.  While this time we were in murkier water in the larger body of the lake, experiencing it with the boys made it even more unforgettable.

If you could play on stage with anyone alive, who would it be?

Joey’s poll from yesterday asking “WHICH IS A BIGGER EMOTIONAL HIT FOR YOU, THE LOSS OF DAVID BOWIE OR PRINCE?” struck a powerful chord in me. It feels like the greatest musicians of our era are dropping so fast we can’t even keep track. Case in point: Lonnie Mack (blues/rock guitar pioneer and major influence on Stevie Ray Vaughan) also died yesterday.  So what do we do? One response is for Vickie and me book as many of our idols as quickly as possible and rush out to see the ones who are too big for the venues we book. It’s beginning to feel like a race against time.

RockinBluesl_Jumbo4-30bAt the same time, we think it’s important to showcase young artists, who might become the next Prince or Bowie or any of the dozen other greats who have left us over the past year. To that end, we produce several “rising star” shows a year — and our next one is a Rockin’ Blues Benefit next Saturday, April 30 at Beverly’s Larcom Theatre to raise money for Harborlight Community Partners.

In addition to featuring three of the region’s top talent: Delta Generators, Willie J. Laws Band and Danielle Miraglia, this show has some profound significance: 1) It’s the last Delta Generators Show with Craig Rawding fronting the band — and 2) We will auction off a guitar (thanks to Guitar Center) signed by all the artists to raise money for Harborlight Community Partners.  This will likely be the last guitar — perhaps the last thing ever — signed by all the current members of the Delta Generators.

If you live in Gloucester, you may have seen Danielle Miraglia here. In 2014, we brought her to Gloucester for the first time to perform with James Montgomery at a benefit for The Open Door, then again at the Cape Ann Solstice with Allen Estes and Charlie Farren.  She’s also been at the Rhumb Line.

On Sunday morning at 9AM, Danielle will be Aurelia Nelson’s special guest — and her only guest — on her North Shore 104.9 radio show Curtain Up.  You’ll hear Danielle perform some of her songs along with a tribute to her favorite artist, Prince.  Now, Danielle isn’t one of those people who waited until yesterday to honor Prince.  Here’s a transcript of an interview she gave 10 years ago in Boston Beats:

Question: “If you could play on stage with anyone alive, who would it be?”

Danielle: “Oh, Prince. Even though I would be completely intimidated by him, and probably just faint. And he’s my height, so it would work.  All his dancers are really short, because they can’t be taller than him or it would just look funny.  I don’t have to play anything, I’ll just roll around on stage.  I’ll just hold onto his leg.  You can put that in print if you want.”

Check out Danielle at Gloucester’s UU Church fundraiser here (by Cape Ann TV):

Homie and Rubber Duck’s Fifth Anniversary

Five years since Rubber Duck and Homie met on that blustery day April 18, 2011. The Fifth is the wood anniversary. Homie gave Rubber Duck a carving of Homie. (Homie is a little self-centered.)

Homie would have carved it himself but he has no opposable thumbs.

Homie would have carved it himself but he has no opposable thumbs.

The following is a repost of Hpmie and Rubber Duck’s First Anniversary describing that fateful hook-up five years ago today.

Homie: “You’re not from around here are you? May I show you the cove?”

Solitude of the lonely Homie.

Cold, lonely, rubbery, but Patriotic!

A little stand offish at first.

They’re eyes locked and Homie was in love.

“So how many children should we have?” Homie wasn’t wasting any time.

“I have a lovely nest on Milk Island.”

You’re not listening to a word I’m saying!”

“We could make it work!”

“Do you think it’s safe to come out?”

Your friends are rude Homie.

Rubber Duck out on the Town at another Fred Bodin Christmas party.

I cannot believe it has only been one year since the Rubber Duck met Homie on a blustery day just like today, April 18, 2011. When I posted that first part of the Rubber Duck saga I was only joking about it being a twenty part series. Little did I know that maybe a hundred posts later the story is still not finished. To commemorate their anniversary I repost the first few chapters. Later this week will be an update of how Homie and Rubber Duck spent their day today. Part I posted April 18th, 2011:  (This will be a twenty part series.) Part II posted April 19th, 2011: But first, the back story. Two lonely birds:  But soon the connection was made and time stopped. ”  “I am so out of here!”  But Homie came back of course and took Rubber Duck all over. The Rockport Dump, Thacher Island lighthouse, Maine, Florida, meeting Santa when he arrived in Rockport, wine tasting at Passports, Duck Confit at Duckworth’s. Then, just a few months later, things got a little weird: Last sighting of RD was at the Spring Fling two weeks ago with rumors that she was at the Thirsty Golf contest at the DogBar last week when Joey caught her again staring at him.  Flexilis anatidaephobia is the fear that a rubber duck is staring at you and Joey has got it bad.
