Tomorrow (Sat 2/21) we welcome Memphis Soul legend and Stax recording artist, Booker T. Jones and his hot young band to the Larcom Theatre for his only New England stop on this U.S. tour. Even though they’ve toured the world, I’ll bet they haven’t seen this much snow on the ground very often — and probably never in the Boston area.
- Booker T. Jones’ new 2 disc CD/DVD “Sound The Alarm” featuring guest performances by Mayer Hawthorne, Luke James, Jay James, Anthony Hamilton, Gary Clark Jr, Estelle, Poncho Sanchez, Sheila E., Kori Withers, Vintage Trouble and Ted Jones.
- Collectible Stax sticker
- Exclusive concert poster not available to the general public
- Exclusive entry to sound check
Get the VIP package (more details here) and be sure to tell Booker T. how much you appreciate his trek up here during our worst winter in a very long time and prove to him that nothing can keep us from enjoying great music! Opening the show are local favorites Sarah Seminski and Eric Reardon.
Check out this video of Booker T. with Gary Clark, Jr (one of the guests on his new CD):
And here’s Sarah Seminski & Eric Reardon performing “Try A Little Tenderness” at the Larcom back in November (a song Booker T. recorded with Otis Redding when they were at Stax Records together). Get tickets here.
Me and my iPhone 6 stepped out to see what the hell all that white stuff is falling from the sky. It’s Christmas every day in Gloucester. And yes, I still love it!!

OK, it’s gonna snow on Valentine’s day — maybe another foot or more. You could amp up the #Snanger OR you could chill by the fire and take your sweetie pie to see Booker T. Jones next Saturday (2/21) down the road at Beverly’s Larcom Theatre.
What could be more romantic than a concert with the greatest Hammond B3 groove-master of all time (and a Grammy-winner and Rock n Roll Hall of Famer) in a gorgeous fully-restored, historic theatre, built in 1912 (same year as Fenway Park) with perfect sound?
Well, here’s what’s even more romantic than that … local rising stars Sarah Seminski & Eric Reardon are opening the show. Here’s a video of them performing “Try A Little Tenderness” at the Larcom back in November. Now, Otis Redding recorded with Stax Records at the same time as Booker T. & the M.G.’s, who backed Otis on his version of this song. Romance will just envelope the whole place next Saturday. Get tickets here.
While I was trying to shoot a video on the best shovel, and shove techniques to use, the FEDEX truck got stuck on my street here in the Bayview area of Gloucester. After some attempts to dig them out, a very kind local named Forest comes up the other direction behind me. We came up with a plan, then I grabbed my cam. BAAAM….#becausegloucester
Stay tuned for the shovel video!!
All of you who know us also know that we LOVE to find young, talented, rising stars and put them on stage with music legends. But that process isn’t as easy as you might think. We’re blessed to live in an area teeming with young talent. The trick is to match them with the appropriate national recording star to produce a show that works musically and, at the same time, introduces the young musicians to fans who will appreciate their talent.
I truly believe we’ve done this with our next show on Saturday, February 21, down the road at Downtown Beverly’s Larcom Theatre, where Sarah Seminski & Eric Reardon open for Stax Recording artist and Memphis Soul Legend Booker T. Jones (of Booker T. and the M.G.’s). The thing is: Booker T. is still winning Grammys with his hot new band full of extremely talented young players, which makes this concert even more exciting.
Good seats are still available (get them here). So get ready for a hot night of rockin’ blues & soul with the greatest Hammond B3 groove-master of all time and a stage full of bright, young talent destined for stardom!
Here are Sarah & Eric performing one of my favorite of their new originals:
And here’s Booker T. at the White House leading a star-studded version of “In the Midnight Hour”:
Remember how we got here?
THE FIRST INTERNET COMMERCIAL
THE LAUNCH OF MAC (During the Super Bowl)
Here’s your chance to get out of the house and enjoy one of the area’s best singer/songwriters in an intimate listening venue.
Bring on the hate! It’s TBSBS “Throw Back Super Bowl Sunday” Those were the days.
When your favorite local band gets to open for a multi-platinum, national recording star, the best way to honor that opportunity is to go to the show. And you can do that by bopping on down to road to Beverly’s Larcom Theatre TONIGHT at 8pm. Good seats are still left to see Gary Backstrom Band open for John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band. Get those seats RIGHT HERE. Some of the best available seats are in the balcony GET THEM HERE.
And there’s a wonderful personal connection going on at this show. Gary’s drummer Mike Doyle studied at Berklee with Jackie Santos, who plays drums for Beaver Brown Band. This will be the first time student and teacher have performed on the same stage in a while. ANT THEY’LL BE HOT!
In fact, John Cafferty and “Tunes” sound better and have more energy now than they did in this 1984 video.
IT’S THE BIG DIG 2!!
So here’s the rescue I was waiting for! Finally we are getting dug out of here. With drifts as high as 8 feet, there was no access to Kilby St., until now. Sorry for the crappy flying, but it was very gusty up here!

Well, this was a video for last night, but it would never upload from my house before the power died. So enjoy! More storm coverage and aftermath to come!
