Brian Templeton tonight @ The Dave Sag’s Blues Party 8:30pm * The Rhumb Line 7.20.2017

 

 

 

Thursday at the Rhummie, the spine-tingling Mr. Brian Templeton returns. This 6 foot 6 golem of the blues makes Foghorn Leghorn sound like Jackie Kennedy! Pipes like the Groaner in the harbor! A pure pleasure to listen to. Plus he’s dragging in the esteemed David Mattacks and six-fingered Billy Loosigian to tighten the thumbscrews. Even worse, we get to do it all over again at the Smile Marker on Sunday (5 to 8). So either (or both) Thursday and Sunday c’mon down and let him squeeze the cider out of your Adam’s

Get her while you can…Julie Rhodes Band Tonight! Katrina’s 9pm with Ben Vosk of These Wild Plains to open…10.28.2016

julie-ks-10-28-2016-n

http://www.julierhodesmusic.com/

Julie Rhodes has just been nominated in 4 Boston Music categories
Album of the year
New Artist of the year
Female Vocalist of the year
Americana Artist of the year

The Julie Rhodes Band is about to rock the Boston Music Awards! December 8th, House of Blues Boston. �!! Ps. don’t forget to vote at bostonmusicawards.com

Check out these reviews…
Fred Knittal review
“Julie Rhodes is without a doubt one of the striking voices we’ve heard during a Folkadelphia Session. Sure, call her a powerhouse because there is certainly power – a brute, earthly force that jolts you up when she chooses to wield it. But let’s talk about the magnificent character of her voice, which is immediately charming, ear-catching, and totally malleable. Let Julie soothe your aching heart with a voice as smooth as butter, let her exfoliate the hurt away with that pumice stone singing, then let her drive you back the bottle with a voice that can get as gritty and raw as a gravel road swept up in a hurricane. Let us praise her passionate vocalizing and her soulful singing, which fit perfectly for songs that sit in the intersection between blues, R&B, rock, and folk. In less words, Julie Rhodes is a vocalist that makes you pay attention – are you listening yet?
Julie Rhodes’ Bound to Meet the Devil is her debut album and released this year, a true blues-rock affair, and well worth your time and money. For her in-studio session at WXPN, Julie, along with her band, stripped the song back just a little bit to reveal that dynamic and emotional core.”

Chris Martin review
Julie Rhodes – Bound to Meet the Devil
“From ice cream scooper to blues singer, Julie Rhodes’ music career is an incredible story. In a short amount of time she has taken the music world by storm with her debut album Bound to Meet the Devil recorded at historic FAME studios. With a big bold voice this New Englander has captured the sound, feel and soul of traditional Southern Blues music like few others. As she sings about bad relationships (“Your Key Won’t Unlock My Door”), untrustworthy people (“Grinnin at Your Face”) and heartbreak (“Hurricane”) you get the sense as if Julie has had experience in all. Songs like “Holes” and “Faith” are brought to life by her voluminous voice as she reaches into the depths of her soul. The song “In Your Garden” is the perfect cross section of Bound to Meet the Devil. Sultry guitar riffs meander through steady rhythms as Rhodes uses weeds in a garden as a metaphor for a relationship going bad. This is what the blues is all about. Bound to Meet the Devil is a solid album from start to finish. As Rhodes delivers tunes steeped in classic blues sounds her passion towards the music oozes from each word that leaves her mouth. You will be hooked from the first play and it just gets better with each listen.”

Dave Sag’s Blues Party tonight to host Diane Blue, Ricky “King” Russell and Ed Scheer 8:30pm 10.13.2016 There’s gonna be whole lotta shakin going on!

dave-sag-bw

Diane Blue. She’s a fireball of intergalactic rocket fuel,and no fool, either. Watch flames erupt from her harmonica as she thrills you with her cantankerous systemic vibrosis! Watch mere ordinary world-famous vocalists cringe as she lets loose with her four dimensional uvula! You’ll need your Ridalin!

Diane Blue
And she’s dragging in kicking and screaming two of your favorite (and mine!) mooseicians to tickle your brain stem. First, Mr. Ricky “King” Russell, mastermind of the Boston Blooze Scene,will be in the glitar chair ,safely fastened for that burning sensation. Then there’s “Mr.” Edd Scheer, our diaphanous yet protophonic swamp popper, on the skins. and me two, on base. Ommm…..
It just doesn’t get any better than this. I mean it!

Professor Harp Tonight! Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb Line 8:30pm 10.6.2016

dave sag bw rl

We all need a little edumacation and respeck, so c’mon down to the Rummie this Thursday for another Blooz Semenar by that quixotic quack master of indigo, Professor Harp.* He’s got this harmonica that’s plugged into either an electric razor or a blender before it gets directly drilled into your skull. Goes ZZZZZ, beep,wheee, uncle!But seriously,folks. Prof H is the real deal and since he’s driving all the way from New Bedford to sing in Portuguese for you, the least you could do is bring some kale and mebbe some chorizo.

professor harp

Also, special guests Mari Martin and a dear friend from the west coast, George Friedenthal!
Mike DiBari, sizzling blowtorch of pain, will be on the guitar. Steevee Chaggaris, with that beautiful head of skin, will be on tubs.
This is the first of many weekends that I don’t have other gigs. Uh-

Brian Templeton Tonight! Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb LIne 8:30pm 9.29.2016…There shall be lots of dancing!

dave-sag-bw

It’s been a long time since Brian Templeton has graced our stage, so we’re getting out of wimp mode and into a strong belt of scotch. I’m putting my bass to the grindstone for a hone job to keep up with Mr. T’s ebullience. Brian’s the big guy with an acoustic guitar and a huge unmuffled glass pack voice. Every time he comes here it’s guaranteed to cure your IBS (irritable blues syndrome). See if you agree.

He’s draggin’ in that proton beam of a catarrist: Mr. Billy Loosigian and the Atomic Clock: Mr. David Mattacks. Ask your chirofractor if BT is right for you.

Dave
