Time to wax your surfboards and slather yourselves with sunblock as we welcome back Mr. Bobby Davis aka Johnny Carwash to the Rhumb Line stage this Thursday night. He’s been busy changing his tune list and reconfiguring his brainstem to wow you with a whole bunch of new stuff for your listening pleasure. Lotta work for me, but a real hoot!
He’s bringing along the masters of mayhem in the form of Mr. Dave Brown and Mr. David Mattacks to nail down the rhythm section. Also , his son Jason will be singing a few toons. Alfred Hitchcock will be shooting some film, too. Don’t miss it!
Super Bowl Sunday sees me whooping it up early (3 to 6) with Chris “Stovall” Brown and Chris Fitz at Brodie’s Seasick Cafe in beautiful downtown Salem. A really nice venue. Come early and help load firewood around the stake!

Yours Truly,

Dave Sag

dave sag bw rl

 

Well, just in time for the holiday seasoning, let’s get behind the one and only exploding Takata® airbag of the blues, Mr. Gordon “Sax” Beadle. With his projectile format and penchant for snake charming, this is the guy to take you into the Twilight Zone. Make you forget about that credit card bill due in January. He’s bringing along that nun-eating master of the qatar, Mr. Mike DiBari and the world’s foremost dribbler and fontman, Mr. Ed “Ed” Scheer to boot. Could be my ultimate agglomeration. I love working with these guys and I promise I’ll be better next year. Honest! Really, don’t miss this one! After This Thursday, We’ll be off until January 7, when the good Old Salty Jazz Band returns for some musical mayhem.

Dave…

Ricky “King” Russell Tonight! Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb Line Thursday 8:30pm 12.10.2015

dave-sag-rl-4-3-2014-1 (2)

Got a brand new guy to unwrap on you this Thursday: Mr. Johnny BlueHorn neé Morriconi or something like that. Been hearing about this dude for years, had a chance to play with him recently and he just knocked me out. Get this: he toots the trumpet and sings and basically sends one into the stratosphere. Love his toons. A real showman! Not only that, but our old buddy Ricky “Burger King” Russell will be returning on guitar and vocals after a long recovery from cosmetic surgery. I’ve missed him! Hope I recognize him! Drum chores filled in by the spattering pile driver hisself: Mr. Ephraim Lowell. Or is it E-frame? E-mail? I dunno, but he does. I’ll be there, too!

Dave says,

We’re cookin’ with aghast this time around with the crash landing of Mr. Chris “Stovall”
Brown on our shores. His clinically-approved method of guitarnomics and vocalizations will have you writhing in ecstasy on the dirty floor. Only Asgard®, the stain remover of the Gods, can help clean up this human stain. Pork crackling rants provided by Mr. Steevee Chaggarriss, finger popping somnambulist, and eardrum specialist. I’ll be there, too, whining about the tip jar once again. Hours 8:30 to 11:30.

A special night! hours 9 to 12.

Dave Sag
“It’s time again for that clinically proven master of mayhem, Mr. Evan Goodrow. He’s flyin’ in on gossamer wings to drive all you kittens wild with his neatly shaven head and croon salivation. Makes me feel really old! Anyways, it’s always a pleasure to have him around to remind me of…what? Also, a new guy: Mr. Dave Moore, on pistons, will be handling the rhythm duties, so, cheer him on! showtime: 8:30 till 11:30.”

“Sax” Gordon @ The Dave Sag’s Blues Party…The joint will be jumpin at The Rhumb Line tonight! 8:30-11:30pm 10.15.2015

dave sag bw rl

Dave says,

We’re going to reach terminal velocity this week, so if you got plans to stay home and iron your underwear, better go to confession and plan on destroying your liver instead.
Firstly, Mr. Gordon “Sax” Beadle returns to the Rhumb Line stage this Thursday. My favorite guest star, if you haven’t seen or heard of him, you must crawl out from under that rock that you’ve been hiding and put on your sailing shoes! This guy will tear your tonsils out with his own unique brand of saxophone mayhem. Always gets the crowd going wild. Not only that, but Ed “Ed” Scheer, my favorite four-on the-floor frontman and drummbler, will be holding down the beat and handling vocal duties. Furthermore, Mr. Pete Henderson makes a rare appearance as a foil and catarrhist of note. I can’t wait!

Tonight! Danielle Miraglia joins The Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb Line 8:30-11:30pm 10.01.2015

dave sags

This Thursday at the Rhumb Line,I’m really bubbling over due to the return of Ms. Danielle Miraglia. You’re in for a treat! She was here once before and afterwards Fred had to scrub the ceiling to get the footprints off. She’s a really great singer. And she’s bringing along an intense melange of players.
First, there’s Mr. Blob Enik, spluttering paint-by-numbers glitarist, who often works with Mari Martin or even Madhouse. Then there’s Mr. Jim Gambino,,of Swinging Steaks fame, as our speculative multi-fingered keyboard whiz.Thumping handled by a truly great drummer, Mr. Steve Bankuti. I’ll be wheezing in the corner, trying to keep up. A truly magical night.Hours: 8:30 to 11:30.

Dave says,

It’s Guitarzan week this Thursday as two of the finest guitarists on my list come together for a great night of wailing and gnashing of teeth. Firstly, there’s the commodious Steve Sadler who really belts it out.

Then there’s Jimmy Scoppa who really belts it out. They fuse with great zzzing  and dripping. Top it off with the twitching of Mr. Jeff Casper, the friendly drummer and myself on the low end and We’re really gonna stir it up!

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!

Dave says,

He’s back! By fopular demand, let’s welcome Mr. John Keegan and his roving band of flesh-eating itinerant musicians. The fearless leader of “Madhouse” will have you quaking’ and shakin’ your tootsies all night long. And he’s bringing along an infectious band of merry men to titillate and tease. We got the fabulous jazz snob, Mr.John Hyde, on the keys and accordion, we have the Irish Ace of Pace, Mr. Benny Benson on the iron lung, we have The unwitting Mr. Brian Alex, on catarrh and vocals, all topped off by the saxophone sorties of the legendary Mr. Marque Earley. Oh, and my wrist is much better, thank you very much! Showtime is 8:30 at the Rhumbline. Where else??
And don’t forget: Monday at the Rose Baker Senior Center, from 1 to 3 the Good Old Salties are still at it, gnawing our way through the entire Great American Schlongbook. It’s free! Scope it out!

Dave says,

Our chronically underfunded musical re-education program proudly presents the return of Ms. Cheryl Arena, citizen, harpist, and vogellizing ringmaster of the third degree. I let her pick her herd of thundering magicians and it’s always a blast. So, Thursday night, her orange-jumpsuited crew consists of Mr. Pete Henderson, encyclopedic amazo, on, yes, the catarrh and vocals, Mr. Forrest “Frosty” Padgett, on the eggbeaters, and me, on the blunt instrument. Ask your veterinarian if The Blues Bash is right for you. Do not dance to excess as the miracle ingredients can cause mirth defects in your unborn notions.

Thursday Night Blues Party with Dave Sag’s Tonight~ Ed Scheer, Jack Ward, Mario Perrett and Paul Foss 8:30 – 11:30 @ The Rhumb Line 5.7.2015

dave-sag-rl-4-3-2014-1 (2) Dave says,

 

We got a real fine band this week: The Euphemystics. Not really new but famous in my own mind as a favorite to work with.So, let’s get going! Our fearless leader this time is the diaphanous Mr. Edd Scheer, the singing, talking drummbler par excellance. He sings, he plays, he has amusing side effects on the band and crowd.  As agent provocateur, we have the commodious Mr. Jack Ward (Cleaver): glittering glitarist, singer, and blues composter; a real pleasure. On sax, we got that former teen idol  and Playgirl® spokesmodel with his jewel-encrusted uvula: Mr. Mario Perrett. From Maine, we got the guy who put the bunion (Bunyan?) in Bangor: Mr. Paul Foss. We’re old friends. I don’t know why. Add me, the severely addlepated basis of blunt, stir well, and have a great time. Don’t miss this. 8:30 till…

Just back from the Sum Yung Guy food festival in Shanghai,  let’s welcome back Mr. Greg Lutrell, citizen and catarrh master. Sings like an angel, too. Mr.l spends a goodly time in China each year, but he’s home now and willing to regale you with his seasick repertoire. It’s always a pleasure to follow him around all his groovy machinations, curve balls and all. Drumming up some enthusiasm will be my old buddy Mr. Roger Brocklebank. With his hollow leg, he’ll be taking anybody’s leftovers home with him. Eat hardy and enjoy!

I’m throwing Ms. Lisa Marie to the wolves this week as I bow out to the travel gods and take my muddy boots to New Orleans. I need a vacation. I’m gonna search for loop garou in the fetid swamps. I’m gonna get bit on my mojo hand. And I’m gonna eat too much. I can’t wait!
So Ms. LM is bringing in the heavy artillery in the form of Mr. Johnnie Juxo, Tarzan of the keys, Mr. Silverfish Steve on DDT glitar and Mr. Chris “Anzio” Anzelone on clubs. It’ll be a blast! And, I’ll see you next week! Always have fun!

Dave says,

So, this is the big one: The return of the one and only Mr. Gordon Beadle. The man with the golden Sax. This hypoxia-inducing master of the honky sax will have you gasping for breath as he literally sucks all the oxygen out of the room and recycles it wobbling directly into your pineal gland. Woe to those who miss this.
But, wait, there’s more: Mr. Edd Scheer, leader of the Love Dogs, will be bashing the drums and singing all those crazy old songs that you know and love. Furthermore, Mr. Mike DiBari will be plucking those glitar strings. this could be one of my all-time favorite units to work with. It always takes me two days to recover! We all sing, we all play and we’re gonna laugh our asses off, to boot.  You should come!

Dave says,

It’s Snowbank Removal Week as temperatures threaten to climb into the Forties. I loved my forties, when I was at the peak of my insanity, rather than being the recondite cretin that I am now: talking to pigeons and wiping saliva off my chin. But enough about me: what about that finger in your eye music happening on Thursday? And that guy who had a seizure whilst skydiving? What’s the big deal? Happens to me all the time….
So, this Thursday let’s have a ball with a sorta new guy: Mr. Tim Gartland. He’s been here before. He’s really talented and deserves your rabid attention. Tim hails from Cleveland, where he was arrested for arson after setting the Cuyahoga river on fire. Now he’s gonna torch your cerebellum with his swingfoot style of harp and vogelsang. He’s got a really cool voice, sort of a cross between Arthur Prysock and Arthur Prysock. With hints of mint courtesy of Metamucil Pete, my street connection.
Backing him up will be that plisky, spoon-bending master of glitar, Mr. Jon Ross. Trader Joe’s secret weapon. Jon is one of my favorite musicians. Fluent on Guitar, bass and drums. drives a cool ’92 Buick Wagon, too.What’s not to like? Drums beaten by Mr. Jeff Casper, the friendly drummer. I’m on bass, trying once again to steal second. C’mon down and have a good time. It’ll be warm! You might even find a parking spot!

tim gartland

And, don’t forget: Next Monday The Old Saltys will be controlling the universe from our secret base hidden at the Rose Baker Senior Center in downtown Gloucester. From 1 to 3, we will be controlling transmission. You ought to see these guys before it’s too late and your prune juice stock tanks on NASDAC. I really mean it: it’s the best show in town. You’ll see….

Dave says,

OK girls, lets get here pronto for the U.F.O. mass hysteria sighting of that age-old teen idol: Mr. Evan Goodrow.  Front man, Qatarist mais non oui, oui,This guy will have you rocking on your crutches with his marvelous renditions of cult classics, nouveau blues, and Transylvanian folk songs. I sure do admire this man’s dogged nerve and rubber determination. E.G. is one of our faves around these parts, and a splendid show is suspected. We’ve hauled in Mr. Benny Benson, Our Irish Ace of Pace®,  afloat since Dunkirk, to handle the the breast-beating. I’ll be on base, hoping for a sacrifice fly. So, put on that Hai-Karate® or Stetson™ and/or wrap dress (or Chinese shoes )and dance the night away while you think about yourself!
