Dave says,
Mr Tim Gartland returns! Presently living in Nashville where he is the top-rated John Deere® Salesman,he not only plays a mean harmonica and sings like an angel, but he has just returned from Rio, where his synchronized spitting team brought home the Gold for the good ol’ USA.

He’s dragging in a crack team to black him up, featuring Mr. Tom West, dishpan handed keyboardist for the (Eupho) Mystics, Pete Henderson,on catarrh, who ,like me is still in recovery from last week’s Sax Gordon show,and Forrest “Tucker” Padgett to make butter on the skins. A great time!

Are you ready? Do you suffer from 4 weal drive? Wheys and miens? Corrosive carbuncles? Well, we offer the perfect ointment for your troubles in the form of Ms. Lisa Marie. Yes, this Thursday Ms. LM descends through the clouds spraying sunshine on all those parts that you fear need toning. Gonna be a big dance party. She’ dragging in Mr. Johnny Juxo on the keys and those fabulous wombat-skinned pointy Italian Shoes to shake things up. A drummer of dubious origin, too? I’m not sure….
It’s also Dave Trooper’s Going away party! From 6 to 8 pm, come by and wish him and Catherine good luck as they deport themselves to Ecuador, where the living is easy, the fish are jumpin’ and the coca grows high. Bring your instruments and show him who’s boss! Seriously, I’m going to miss him terribly and wish both all the luck on their new adventure. Do come!

We’re having a guitar extravaganza this Thursday. I’m calling’ in the big guns for a battle plan.
First, We got the commodious Mr. Steve Sadler and his willfully meandering slide catarrh in the top spot. He sings, he plays anything;  he does it all.

On the other side, there’s Mr. Jim Scoppa, guitarist non pareil,  with his gas-fired style and smoking amplifier. Mr. Andrew “Pops” Jones will be freaking out on the drums. I’ll be in the middle with a bunch of new toons to torture you with. Ask your doctor if The Rhumb Line is right for you!

Chris “Stovall” Brown Tonight with guest drummer Chris Anzalone Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb Line 8:30pm 4.14.2016

 

dave sags

Nose-busting Mr. Chris “Stovall” Brown returns this Thursday for yet another rousing evening of Bad jokes, incredible glitar and heartfelt vocals. Always a pleasure to have mr. B. around. He keeps me honest, knows a million toons and has a new wireless rig that allows him to communicate with the planet Altair IV, as well as jump around all over the place whilst whanging out yet another incredible solo enroute to the front door. You gotta see this.

csb dsbp rl 4.14.2016
Of course, our Gatling drummmbler aka Mr. Chris Anzelone will remain forcibly rooted to the floor and the groove via welded connection to me; the basest.

Dave Birkin Tonight! The Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb Line 8:30pm 4.7.2016

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

We’re late celebrating Keaster this week as I offer you hipster replacement therapy in the guise of Mr. Dave Birkin. A newbie for you and me. I met this guy at a party where the wallpaper curled and houseplants died after a rousing set of heat-seeking blues and j**z got the audience wheezing and drooping in hysteresis. Just back from a perspirational visit to The Mount Of Olive Oyl, where he scored a pair of Roman sandals and a scutum real cheap, Dave will visibly shake you up with modern renditions of classic blues and jazz. He has a really great Sax sound. And he sings, too. I really mean this.

Blacking him up will be that nun-eating master of the gootar, Mr. Mike DiBari; our antidisestablishvegetarianism recipient of the year, and Mr. Chris Anzelone, a new piston-popping drummmbler, who’ll knock your block off. I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time and can’t wait to hear me cry “Uncle!” Do come!

This Thursday we offer significant symptom relief with the infusion of that Tootin’ Torquemada of the Tenor: Mr. Andrew Clark.

Tonight A Tribute Allen Toussaint at The Dave Sag’s Blues Party 8:30 to 11:30pm 2.25.2016

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

 

It’s a special week for me as I capture some of my favorite high-value targets and toss ’em on the stage for a big whoop-di-do. Seeing as how one of my favorite songwriters and performers passed on a few months ago, I thought It’d be a good idea to honor him with a tribute. I’m talkin’ about Mr. Allen Toussaint.

Allen-Toussaint-RIP

http://allentoussaint.com/

You may not have heard the name, but this guy was one of the most important tunesmiths of the 60’s and 70’s. He wrote over 1000 songs, some of which are classics.. We’re gonna do like 30 of them, if we can, with no rehearsal, no backsies and no money down. To help me out I’ve engaged my most favorite lovers of his music. Phew!
Let’s start with Edd Scheer, everybody’s favorite frontman, drummer and vocalist. Add Mr. Jon Ross, on guitar and vocals, and Mr. John Cameron , on keys, and me, suffering with a swollen enigma, coughing my brains out, and writing out words to 30 songs and what do you get? Hopefully a stellar night of Allen’s top notch music!
Somebody help me!

Wow. I’ve been so busy. Just got back from Fat Tuesday gig and i’m bushed. So here goes:
Lets welcome back the inimitable Mr. Professor Harp. Comin’ all the way from New Bedford where the blues smells like fish, he certainly fits in here in Gloucester. He’s got a razor sharp take on all things musical and will have you quivering in your mukluks as he dives deep into the muddy waters. Backing him up will be that nun-eating master of the Qatar, Mr. Mike DiBari and the shivaree-inducing drumambulist Mr. Stevvee Chaggaris. And me, too. Showtime 8:30. See you then!

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!

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 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!
