Dave Sag’s Blues Party Tonight with Scotty Shetler @ The Rhumb Line 8:30-11:30pm 8.27.2015

Dave Saginario

Dave says,

This Thursday I’m really psyched to bring you something new and scrofulous: The Tenor Titan, Mr. Scotty Shetler. We played here in the “old” days and he just slipped through my cracks. Ah, all these years…. You gotta hear this guy play! He just oozes Omphalos! Sings, too. A great front man!

Not only that, but Mr. Pete Henderson,lonely in these parts, is making a rare appearance on catarrh and vocals. Another awesome boost to our flame-throwing lineup.Top it all off with the Atomic Clock, Mr. David Mattacks with me cringing in the background and you’ll be crying “Uncle!”. This could be one of the best shows all summer!

Daily #GloucesterMA Schooner Festival Update 8/26/15

100_1971

 

Ron Gilson submits-

Ben Pine’s name was a household word in the days of sail- the illustrious 1920s.  Piney said that the Essex built Schooner Columbia “Was the finest piece of wood to ever show her highs out of Gloucester.”  Schooner Columbia was lost prematurely off Sable Island only a few years after her launching.  She was the best that Essex built and Gloucestermen sailed schooner in the history of dorymen.

You can see from the photo Ron took this morning that on the tombstone of Ben Pine it depicts the beautiful Schooner Columbia.


Come down to Maritime Gloucester (23 Harbor Loop, downtown Gloucester) to celebrate the arrival of the schooner Columbia on Thursday, August 27, at 10am. All attendees will be entered into a raffle for a free 2015 Schooner Festival Hat and Schooner Festival T-Shirt! (must be present during the drawing to win)

Help us welcome the Columbia is proper Gloucester style!


Thanks!!!!

A view from Hull

I spent my summers in Hull from the age of 3 to 21.  My Nonnie bought a cottage on the bayside with a view of the bay and also Paragon Park.  On August 19, 2015, went to visit a very close friend to visit her and her mom in Nantasket Beach.  We went to the Hull Point and took this photo of Boston.  The airport is only 7 miles away from this spot.

What? You’ve never been aboard the Beauport Princess Cruise Ship? Rectify that on Schooner Festival Sunday!

This is NOT a small whale-watch or fishing boat.  It’s a fully-loaded CRUISE SHIP featuring 2 enclosed decks with dance floors, 3 full-service bars (wine, beer & top-shelf liquor) and an open-air top deck — theatre seating on the first deck, tables on the second deck and couches on the top deck.

The weather will probably be great, but even if it’s not, you can party in luxury and comfort on both of the air-conditioned (or heated if need be) indoor decks with bars and dance floors.

Plus you’ll be partying with 5-time Grammy Nominees Roomful of Blues and cruising historic Gloucester Harbor full of tall ships on Schooner Festival Sunday!  Our last three concert cruises sold out, so please don’t be one of those people who calls us begging for a spot we can’t give you.  Get your tickets RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW. Then you can relax and enjoy Schooner Festival weekend!
