Dave says,

Everybody keeps asking me: when ya gonna bring back that guy, you know, big as a bear with designer overalls and a voice that could shatter diamonds? Or your sub-human desires. What? Who are you?
But seriously, folks; we got him this week. i’m talking about Mr. Brian Templeton, a great songwriter and foghorn, who commands your presence. His incisive toons and heady interpretations of classic gems is sure to explode the elastic in your BVD’s. He’s one of my go to guys when the goin’ gets rough, like my shrimp Po-boy- induced acne that needs some lovin’.



Helping out on the guitar will be Mr. Billy Loosigian, celebrity pet stylist and New Hampshire’s answer to Jimmy Page. Been in every Boston band in the world since 1975.Mr. David Mattacks, the Atomic Clock, will add his cesium and desist order to the proceedings. I’m bringing my big-ass tube amp, just to show ya. Do not miss this.
Nexxxt Week: Sax (Flash) Gordon Beadle and the hippies from hell. OMG! Free radiation suits to the first 20 customers.

here’s a short clip from the last time Brian, Dave, Billy and Dave played The Rhumb Line


DAVE SAG’S BLUES PARTY WITH SPECIAL GUEST: Brian David Templeton, William Loosigian & Dave Mattacks @ The Rhumb Line 8:30 to 11:30

It’s He-Man Week™ as I drag in the limb-crunching behemoth of the blues: Mr. Brian Templeton. Last time he was here, severe shock and awe erupted on the dance floor and mere mortals (not you) quivered with trepidation at what might happen to their booty whilst under his spell. He’s a really big guy, physically and tonally. Makes me look like Barney Fife. He’s really a great frontman, singer and harpist,and a joy to work with. He’s bringing along Mr. Billy Loosigian, rocket-propelled guitarist and veteran of many an ear-exploding night on this same stage.He’ll be the one in the red cape. Range-finding co-ordinates supplied by the atomic clock, Mr. Dave Mattacks. I’ll be on base. hours: 8:30 till11:30, and, no, we’re not changing them anymore for the winter.

Willie ” Loco” Alexander Tonight! Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb Line 8:30-11:30 July 31, 2014

I’m psyched that Willie “Loco” Alexander is joining me this week! Forget this “Godfather”  jazz: Willie is the real deal. Anybody  with this kind of history is my kind of guy. His jackhammer style spackles all the cracks in the real rock ‘n’ roll pantheon. Makes me feel 20 again!
He’ll be bringing his longtime guitarist, Mr. Billy Loosigian, the phlegmatic,articulate articulator of artifice with him along with that cackling, lightning cracker, Mr. Steve Chaggaris, on the skins. I’ll be on bass, as usual. Stick that safety pin in your brain and dream about  the days you never lived through! Hours:8:30 to 11:30.

Dave Sag’s Thursday Night Blues Party @ the Rhumb Line

From Mr. Saggs Hisself-

“Big fun this thursday as we welcome back slumlord and guitar gunslinger Mr. Billy Loosigian, the scourge of N.H. stripmalls. Y’all remember Billy, or is it Buffalo Bilious, the famous juggler of hot blues lix, ancient rock’n’roll samples and general musical magician, courtesy of Willie Alexander’s Ragtime Band. Billy is one of the most sought-after call guys on the Boston circuit, and we got ‘im, and we’re gonna  blow a fuse. Wear rubber gloves. And, oh, by the way, girls, he’s single! and not even remotely gay! And lives out of town! Get in line! I’m sellin’ tickets!
Blacking him up will be our own Frosty The Snowman, Mr. Forrest Padgett, on Drummbulators, the nicest guy I’ve ever known, and of, course, Greg T. on catarrh, and myselph, on base. We’re gonna romp and stomp till midnite. Honk and sneeze till daylite. You come, too.”
