Dinner Specials Each Week!
Wednesday, December 7th – 7pm
A VERY, VERY Special Music Guest:
QUENTIN CALLEWAERT!

qc-fly

Folks… something very, very special will be happening this
week at the Rhumb. A young (he’s only 16) genius by the
name of Quentin Callewaert will be strutting his amazing
stuff for us all. He reminds me so much of myself when I
was his age (just a few years ago, of course). So full of
spirit and enthusiasm. He loves what he does, and it shows.
Some of you may have caught him on cable’s “Local Music
Seen” with Allen Estes – way back when he was only THIRTEEN!
OMG! And speaking of “back”… for those wondering, I am
100% back on my weekly Rhumb Line rotation. Surely,
Quentin and I will be trading a few licks, and maybe teaching
each other a few new tricks. Marina Evans is out of country
for the holidays this year. We’ll catch up when she returns.
And, something else to watch for… please don’t miss Allen
Estes, myself, Senator Bruce Tarr and many more friends on
North Shore 104.9’s live broadcast of its 21st annual Holiday
Toy Drive this coming Thursday. The fun and festivities will
be running throughout the entire day. Click the link below
for further details. All for now. Happy Holidays! ~ Fly

Eric Mintel Jazz Quartet

I took the boys to the Larcom Theatre on Sunday night for a holiday jazz concert with the Eric Mintel Jazz Quartet.

I was excited for the boys to see a live performance on the stage of the Larcom Theatre as they’ll be performing there themselves in January for a school concert.  I also was psyched for them to hear some live Jazz….especially since it was infused with some fun holiday tunes.

I’m so glad we went.  The quartet was really quite exceptional and we all had a great time. It was such a wonderful way to get into the holiday spirit.

The Larcom Performing Arts Theatre

If you’re looking for a holiday show, some live music, or even a good laugh….this could very well be the ticket!

The Larcom Theatre, in addition to being full of history and really quite beautiful, has a pretty diverse line-up on deck for your enjoyment.  Do yourself a favor and check out their schedule.

THE LARCOM PERFORMING ARTS THEATRE

We’ll be going Sunday evening to hear the Eric Mintel Quartet and their Charlie Brown Jazz Tour….

The Eric Mintel Quartet have been thrilling audiences of all ages with their electrifying jazz, on Sunday the Eric Mintel Quartet performs their highly successful “Charlie Brown Jazz” concert tour featuring the beloved holiday cartoon and music by Vince Guaraldi.  Songs include, Christmas Time is Here, Skating, Christmas is Coming and the legendary Linus and Lucy plus many other reworked holiday favorites.  This concert is fun for the entire family

…and we’ll definitely be ordering tickets to one of the performances of A Charlie Brown Christmas.

The wide variety of events planned this month and next also include Suzanne Vega (loved her), several performances of the Nutcracker, A Rolling Stones show called “Satisfaction”, and two great comedians…Paul D’Angelo (on New Year’s Eve…such a fun idea) and Lenny Clarke.

The Larcom is quite the little gem in the community of Beverly and surrounding towns and I know I, for one, need to remember to check out the schedule every once in awhile to see what is happening.

Beverly Tree Farm

img_8068

Are the trees getting shorter….or are my boys getting taller?

Last Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, marked the 7th year in a row that we have driven to the Beverly Tree Farm….Christmas carols cranking…. in search of our perfect tree. Some years we are in search of big….some years small.  Some years we go in search of super full….some years extra tall.

What doesn’t change is how excited we are to enter the Bertolon Family’s gorgeous red barn house to sit by the fire, drink some cider, share some cookies, flip through the “Naughty and Nice” book, inevitably bump into some friends, and head out into the designated field in search of the tree that speaks to us.

Some years it has been unseasonably warm…and a couple of times there has been some snow on the ground.  No matter what the weather, we always leave the farm….tree strapped securely to the roof of the car…full of holiday cheer and ready to kick off the Christmas season.

It means so much to me to know that the boys will look back fondly on traditions like this one as they grow older and will hopefully continue them with their own families.  Maybe they’ll let me tag along.

I want to thank the Bertolon family and all of the wonderful staff who, while conscious of it or not, are helping to make memories for countless families each holiday season.

I got such a kick out of looking back through photos of our “Tree Cutting Days” last night and seeing how the boys have grown each year. I look forward to many more years of tree hunting and the memories that they will bring.

I hope that you all find the perfect one of whatever it is that makes your holiday season so special and that happy memory making awaits you and your loved ones this season.

Thanksgiving Eve at the Rhumb Line is probably the most festive
and happening Cape Ann musical scene I’ve ever known. Totally
sets the mood for the holidays. Always a big night, I’d plan on
getting there early. Grab a seat. Order dinner. Have a blast!
My good friend Orville Giddings has something special lined up
for you. All you have to do is be there to enjoy it. And, speaking
of being there, I wish to thank Allen Estes and all those who attended
my return last week. It was a special night, and it meant the world!
Have fun, everyone! Love ~ Fly
