From the Making of Beauport Hotel
As promised, we warn FOBs when a show is about to sell out. Tomorrow’s Loretta LaRoche – Love Laughter and Lasagna (taking you back in time to the humor of growing up with her Italian family in Brooklyn) is selling fast and there are only a few tables left at our new, intimate venue, 9 Wallis in Beverly. You may have seen Emmy-winning Loretta LaRoche on PBS or during prior tours, but you’ve probably never seen her in an intimate room with comfortable table seating, a delicious Lasagna dinner and bar service!
You don’t want to be one of those people who calls us tomorrow begging for a seat that we can’t give you because there just isn’t any space left, do you?
Here’s Loretta on PBS:
My name is Rob Ackerman.
I am Freshman at Endicott College, majoring in elementary education.
When I am not studying or in class, I like to take pictures and video with my DJI Phantom 4 drone or Canon 80D.
Recently I created a slow motion video of the water and beaches here at Endicott College.
I would be honored if you shared it on your blog!
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.
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.
Yes, if you go here, it looks like our Tribute to Johnny Cash – The Man In Black Show is almost sold out. That’s because most of the Orchestra seats are already taken. But you can still get a great seat in the Balcony HERE! Many of the seats in this picture are still available. Look how close you are–and the sound is GREAT up here!
We just voted. It was easy. No lines. We understand if you don’t like the choices. You probably seldom do. But you still have to choose. We all do. That’s kind of the point of a democracy. We never get exactly what we want, but we all work together for the good of our country as a whole.
More importantly, there are MASS referendum measures on the ballot today that will most likely affect your life far more than the new president will. I woke up today with this song in my head. It’s Paul Simon’s satire of Bob Dylan and politics all wrapped up into one fun song on Simon & Garfunkel’s mega-hit album Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme (all of which we have growing in our garden). Listen, laugh, vote and feel better! Lyrics below the video…
I been Norman Mailered, Maxwell Taylored
I been John O’Hara’d, McNamara’d
I been Rolling Stoned and Beatled till I’m blind
I been Ayn Randed, nearly branded
Communist, ’cause I’m left-handed
That’s the hand I use, well, never mind
I been Phil Spectored, resurrected
I been Lou Adlered, Barry Sadlered
Well, I paid all the dues I want to pay
And I learned the truth from Lenny Bruce
And all my wealth won’t buy me health
So I smoke a pint of tea a day
I knew a man, his brain was so small
He couldn’t think of nothing at all
Not the same as you and me
He doesn’t dig poetry
He’s so unhip that when you say Dylan
He thinks you’re talking about Dylan Thomas
Whoever he was
The man ain’t got no culture
But it’s alright, ma, everybody must get stoned
I been Mick Jaggered and silver daggered
Andy Warhol, won’t you please come home?
I been mother, father, aunt and uncled
Been Roy Haleed and Art Garfunkeled
I just discovered somebody’s tapped my phone
We’ve presented over 100 shows — and a few festivals — since we produced Celebrate Gloucester in 2007 (almost 10 years ago). Most of our shows feature original music performed by the artists who first recorded and released it. Next Friday, November 11, we are presenting something a bit different — The Man In Black Show, a Tribute to Johnny Cash. This is no ordinary tribute show. Shawn Barker is hailed by people who knew Johnny Cash very well as the pre-eminent Johnny Cash tribute artists. His 8 piece band puts on a tremendous show. Most importantly, the music is authentic Johnny Cash. Shawn has a deep love and respect for the Man in Black who inspired him as a young musician — and you can feel it. Check out the video below and you’ll see what we mean. There are still some good seats in the orchestra (get them here) and great seats in the Balcony (get them here) — but they won’t last long — this show is selling fast.
Once in a while, when good people work together, something wonderful arises. That’s what you can expect on Saturday at the Queen Treatment Only Music Festival co-produced by award-winning Boston vocal powerhouse Ruby Rose Fox in partnership with us at gimmeLIVE.
Our vision was to bring the area’s top female artists together for one show on the same stage for an extraordinary night of music. Ruby has chosen a stellar lineup for what the press are calling a “groundbreaking” show (see videos of all artists here). Of course, no North Shore festival lineup would be complete without Gloucester’s Chelsea Berry!
Tickets are only $20 in advance GET THEM HERE ($30 at the door). ALL AGES festivals like this can pave the way for the next generation of girls and women to make independent music without apologies, fear or rules. Bring your friends for a one-of-a-kind musical experience you won’t see anywhere else!
Just in case you don’t know Chelsea, here’s a taste of some of her music:
And here’s a video of Ruby Rose Fox (some of which was shot the last time she played at The Larcom in Beverly)

Hottest Show of the Season Under $20 THIS FRIDAY ~ Don’t forget: all seats are good at Beverly’s Larcom Theatre
Watch the 2 videos below and then tell me you’re not gonna stop whatever you’re doing right now and get tickets to see Lez Zeppelin this Friday, Oct 14!
While staying true to the sound and spirit of Led Zeppelin, this is no ordinary tribute. Lez Zeppelin’s album was produced by Eddie Kramer, renowned for having mixed much of Led Zeppelin’s material and Lez Zeppelin was hailed as “The most powerful all-female band in rock history” by Spin Magazine.
Don’t worry that much of the orchestra is sold. Great seats are left in the balcony starting at $19.00 (including the seat this picture was taken from) GET THEM HERE!
While we don’t ordinarily plan ahead that much, Thanksgiving weekend is one notable exception. That’s because if you don’t plan ahead, you’re often left with just a couple of lousy choices. Here are two very different (ALL AGES) entertainment options that will likely both sell out by Thanksgiving:
Ever wonder who’s the REAL MENTALIST?
The character of “The Mentalist” (portrayed by Simon Baker in the hit CBS TV series) was inspired by Jon Stetson, who was a consultant on the show. He’s entertained five U.S. Presidents, The King of Sweden, The Royal Family of Monaco, and appeared on several major Television Networks (CBS, NBC, PBS, A&E and more). On Black Friday (Nov 25), You can see him LIVE right down the road at The Larcom in Beverly. It’s the perfect way to laugh off the pounds you put on the day before — and be amazed by his sleight-of-mind! Check him out in this video:
Then on Saturday Nov 26 you can be part of the first North Shore Reggae Fest featuring Warrior King & the Rootz Warriors, who are making their first East Coast U.S. appearance in NINE YEARS with local favorite Mamadou Diop and his band with Rockport’s Jake Pardee on guitar! Gloucester’s DJ’s Lion Pride Sound opens the show with top spins from roots, rockers, lovers rock ska, and dancehall. Check out Warrior King in this video:
Edgar Winter reveals the first instrument he & his big brother Johnny played together in a wonderfully personal interview with Salem’s Blake Maddux
Every once in a while a reporter is able to get a rock icon to open up and share personal stories. Local writer, Blake Maddux, is one of those rare few as you’ll be able to see in his interview with Edgar Winter in the Beverly Citizen. Read it here!
Weaved through several fascinating stories about Woodstock, his brother Johnny, his father, mother and grandfather, Edgar says, “music is a lot more than just my internalized private world. It has the power to transcend boundaries and reach out and bring people together.”
You can experience what Edgar is talking about this Saturday, right down the road in Beverly at The Larcom, the most intimate, acoustically stellar listening room north of Boston! Good seats still available starting at $29.00. Get them here!
Here’s an Edgar Winter quote from the article:
So Johnny and I started out playing ukulele, singing Everly Brothers songs like “Wake Up Little Susie” and those kind of songs.
