Hey… Let’s Rock The Boat!
Join us for Rock The Boat, on Friday, November 7, 2014, 6:30-9:30pm at the Arts at the Armory, 191 Highland Avenue, Somerville, MA 02143. This fundraiser is a benefit for Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance (NAMA), www.namanet.org.
For almost 20 years NAMA has been rocking the boat! We’ve been shaking up the systems, policies, processes, markets and narratives that are dominating fishery policies and marine conservation. Rock The Boat is NAMA’s first benefit event featuring, art, food, education, and an auction. The evening will be joined by singer-songwriter Chelsea Berry and the Bob Marley tribute band, Hope Road.
Dance to the music of singer-songwriter Chelsea Berry and groove to the tunes of Bob Marley tribute band Hope Road. Enjoy food provided by supportive restaurants and hospitals – yes we said hospitals! – creating delicious bites using regional sea and land food. Snack on vegetarian raviolis rolled out all night by Joe Gatto of “From Scratch” TV. Imbibe on some local beer, wine and healthy sodas. Learn from thoughtful chefs. Take part in a silent auction. Celebrate our living fishing economies. And support our efforts to keep rocking the boat!
If you can’t make it, buy a ticket for someone who can but can’t afford it by checking the “Rock the Boat Without Me!” ticket box. We’ll prioritize distributing those tickets to fishing community advocates.
See you November 7th! Come Rock the Boat with us!
Rock the Boat aims to fund programs in continuing the work of NAMA to:
- Promote taking control of the seafood in our food system
- Increase awareness about racial equity, economic justice, and food access

Chelsea is back from a her national tour and will be performing Friday (7/25) at Cape Ann Marina’s Waterfront Pavilion (the BIG tent). There are still seats available and you can get tickets here.
We know we live in a very special music community when someone who made her name in Gloucester comes back from a national tour and remembers where she got her start by appearing on local radio and performing in local venues.
Aren’t you glad you live here?
Just in case you don’t know who Chelsea Berry is, check out this video of her at Shalin Liu:

We have rented the event tent at the Cape Ann Marina (at Mile Marker on 133) and the entire tent will be theater row seating with the exception of cabaret seating up front (cabaret table seats 4 and ticket price includes a bottle of Prosecco!).
Renee & Joe are opening and then I’ll do an acoustic set, followed by a full band set with Renee DuPuis on keys and backup vocals, Joe Cardoza on bass, Dennis Monagle on drums, and Brendan Burns (amazingly talented Somerville guitarist) on lead guitar.
You can buy tickets online at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/709321 or in person at Mile Marker 1. Seating is general admission.
This is a one night event so if you plan to attend, please buy your tickets early! We won’t add a second show if we sell out (and I think we will)!
On a side note, I want to take the opportunity to sincerely thank you all for the support you have shown me since moving to Gloucester. Six years ago I began playing open mics at Cameron’s, the Pleasant St. Tea Company, the Rhumb Line, Dog Bar… now most of my shows are in listening rooms and out of state! I’ve worked hard to get here but there is no question in my mind that there is no way I’d be where I am in my career if it weren’t for you. The support system that Gloucester offers to musicians is something truly unique and amazing. It really is because of you that all of these wonderful opportunities have come my way… so thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Really hope to see you all on July 25!!

Thanks, to everyone who came out to support Gloucester’s UU Church Meetinghouse Restoration last Saturday — and especially to 3rian King, Chelsea Berry, Renee Dupuis, Joe Cardoza, Brendan Burns, Meff & Dennis Monagle, who delivered a stellar performance that had the crowd swaying and singing to “All You Need Is Love!”
Next Saturday we change it up a bit and ROCK THE MEETINGHOUSE with Martha’s Vineyard-based, six-piece ENTRAIN, featuring founder/drummer Tom Major and lead singer/guitar wiz Brian Alex, for their only North Shore concert this spring. As Entrain’s conga/djembe/trombonist Sam Holmstock says, “The most important thing that we try to do with our music is bring everybody together in the spirit of peace, love, fun and a ton of drums!” Nothing more to say, really. Just watch the video (get tickets here)
Just because it’s a benefit doesn’t mean you can’t save a little money by getting your tickets on-line. Go for it.
You’ll recognize the songs, but experience them in a wonderfully new way as they are interpreted by some of Cape Ann’s finest singer/songwriters. And you’ll continue to help restore one of Gloucester’s best-loved landmarks.
As quoted in today’s Gloucester Daily Times, “It’s such a historical landmark for religious freedom and freedom of thought,” said King. “This is a place we need to preserve.” We agree. Please join us. And save a bit of money by getting your tickets now, right here.
You probably know this as one of Mae West’s most famous quotes and on Friday, she’ll be proven right once again. Just like our Solstice benefit at Gloucester’s UU Meetinghouse, this Friday, when 3rian King, Chelsea Berry, Renee Dupuis and others come together for a fresh take on The Beatles, we’ll have so much talent on stage that you could honestly complain it’s too much of a good thing. But you won’t complain, will you? Nope. You’ll thank your lucky stars that you live in a town so full of talent that you can enjoy top quality entertainment all year long! Or, you’ll kick yourself for not getting tickets and missing the show. Which one will it be? Get tickets here.
Some of you may remember the last time I added visuals to a radio ad and made a video. Well I’ve done it again for our UU Meetinghouse benefit next Friday, April 25 featuring local stars 3rian King, Chelsea Berry, Renee Dupuis, Joe Cardoza and Dennis Monagle with Boston-based Meff and Brendan Burns, all of whom “come together” as The Number Nines for a fresh take on The Beatles.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock this year, you already know that 2014 is the 5oth anniversary of The Beatles’ appearance on Ed Sullivan. I begged my parents to let me stay up and watch the show — and they agreed. (Kids went to bed earlier in those days.)
It was a thrill! Most everybody on my block was already a Beatles fan and the next day, we were utterly devoted. We all started saving up for the next record. Being the 5oth anniversary of what CBS billed as “The Night That Changed America”, you’ve also probably seen lots of Beatles tribute bands playing around. Next Friday (April 25), Top area musicians come together (yes, pun intended) to help raise money for Gloucester’s UU Meetinghouse as The Number Nines — but this is no tribute band. Rather, it’s three top Gloucester singer/songwriters: 3rian King, Chelsea Berry and Renée Dupuis, joined by Boston‐based multi‐instrumentalist Meff and guitarist Brendan Burns with Gloucester’s favorite rhythm section: Dennis Monagle and Joe Cardoza. They’ll perform their own originals plus fresh takes on The Beatles, like this soulful interpretation of “I Want To Hold Your Hand” featuring Chelsea Berry on vocals:
So, we can all agree that The Beatles are the greatest rock band ever, right? “Not so fast,” quips Vickie. “What about Jimi Hendrix?”
“What about him?” I reply.
“You’re always saying he’s the greatest rock guitar player, who ever lived.”
“Well, of course he is.” [Here’s one of my Hendrix favorites]
“So how can The Beatles be the best rock band ever?”
“Oh come on. I can’t choose between The Beatles and Hendrix!”
So the next night, April 26, our friend Jon Butcher is bringing his powerful new show, The Jon Butcher Axis: Celebrating the Music of Jimi Hendrix to the Larcom Theatre for their Boston area debut. Check out Jon’s version of another one of my favorite Hendrix tunes:
I’ll be at both. You can be too. You don’t have to choose.
Every year or so, Megan Burtt comes to Gloucester to visit her good friend and Berklee chum, Chelsea Berry — and to treat us to her thoughtful, moving, gorgeous music at local venues. This time she’s at Old Sloop on Saturday, April 5th with Boston singer/songwriter Danielle Miraglia. This will be an excellent show!
Woke up to a dusting of new snow that was gone by noon. Only a few dirty-gray-white winter leftovers remain as the sun burns a bright spot behind the clouds — too shy to show its full face. Does this presage one of those jolting seasons when Mother Nature forgets about spring and jumps into summer without warning?
That’s what seems to happen in Gloucester’s music scene. Before you know it your choices for live music double, but don’t worry. We’ll continue to help you sort it all out with Cape Ann’s only complete live music listing here.
If you think about it, there really are two kinds of music venues: restaurants/clubs and what musicians call “listening venues”. (That is, until the weather gets nice enough to add a third: boats with music cruises.) For now, suffice it to say that we’re extremely lucky to live in an area with an abundance of good restaurants and clubs who offer live music for free because they’re able to make a living on the food and drink they serve.
Chelsea Berry wrote an excellent song about this very issue:
And now there’s even a facebook page dedicated to promoting listening venues in MA. See it here.
Free from the distractions of TV, clanging silver & dishware, people talking, wait staff running around and kitchen noise, the concert milieu connects you with the artist through an intimate, intense bond that’s simply impossible to maintain in a restaurant or bar. And when you’re on stage you can feel that energy, soak it in and give back something more powerful that seems to arise spontaneously out of the ether.
Luckily, we live in an area with several excellent listening venues. Good coffee houses: Old Sloop in Rockport. One World in Essex and Crosswinds in Gloucester. Cape Ann’s crown jewel, the Shalin Liu performance Center and the Larcom Theatre down the road in Beverly.
With your help, Gloucester’s iconic UU Meetinghouse is working to restore their balcony so it can become another major listening venue and we’re helping them by presenting concerts in the church to raise money for that effort. Cape Ann Winter Solstice started this project off by packing the house on December 21. We’re doing it again on April 25 with The Number Nines featuring top Cape Ann talent 3rian King, Chelsea Berry, Renee Dupuis and Dennis Monagle together with Boston stars Meff and Brendan Burns. If you want to be sure to get a seat, you probably shouldn’t wait until the last minute to buy your tickets. Get them now here:

In celebration of Megan’s return, we’re reprising her show on Local Music Seen with Allen Estes this week starting tomorrow (WED) at 6:30 and again on Friday at 1:30pm and Sunday at 6pm on Cape Ann TV Channel 12. Here’s a taste of that show:
