Dan King with Brown, Mattacks & Ginandes @ Jalapenos tonight

Just got the word from DB that Dan King will be joining the boys at Jalapenos tonight before he flies back to the west coast.  Here’s a nice video, albeit a bit shaky, shot  by Ned Nugent, of the boys at Jalapenos last May — one of my favorite Dan King songs.

BREAKING NEWS: Last night’s open mic @ Dog Bar was so great that Steve Caraway will host every Tuesday

What a great week of music this has been and it’s only Wednesday!

Last night Steve Caraway struck up the open mic again at Dog Bar and by all accounts it was a HUGE SUCCESS!  So much so that he’s decided to host every week.  Way to go STEVE!

Before Steve began at Dog Bar, Allen Estes sat in Dan King’s seat at Jalapenos and rocked the house with Dave Brown, Dave Mattacks and Wolf Ginandes.  All were at the top of their game, especially DB, whose solos took us away!

And I just have to say that it is such a pleasure listening to Dave Mattacks, whose percussion is absolutely perfect for every song .  He is without a doubt one of the best drummers alive today.  These guys are so professional they were able to follow Allen on one of his brand new songs, having never heard it before — and it sounded as if they’d just come from rehearsal.  Aren’t we lucky to have people of this caliber on Main St., in Gloucester every Tuesday for FREE!  Next week J.B. Amero is in Dan King’s seat.  Oooohh, that’ll be HOT!

Excellent live music starts up again tonight at 7pm (early enough to take the kids).  See the schedule here.

What’s EBMG?

Allen with his band circa 1973 (you know it’s been a while when people start using the word “circa” on your photos)

Not what, who?  You don’t think Jalapenos is going to cancel their wicked popular Tuesday night music — even though Dan King is off to the west coast, do you?  Nope.  This coming Tuesday, Dave Brown, Dave Mattacks and Wolf Ginandes (BM&G) will be joined by Allen Estes, hence: EBMG.

But don’t wait for Tuesday, lots of great live music this weekend.  See the full live music schedule here.

Here’s a quick farewell to GMG FOBs video we shot just before filming the Local Music Seen Dan King Farewell Special featuring J.B. Amero.  You can see part 2 of the special on Cape Ann TV Channel 12, this Sunday (Jan 6) at 6pm.

Allen will play a request for you on Tuesday if you can tell him the name of the song he quoted to Dan in this video.

Love Christmas music or not, lots of great live music choices in Gloucester tonight

Those of you who like Christmas music are in luck tonight.  Fly Amero is signing Christmas songs with his brother J.B. and Allen Estes at the Rhumbline tonight starting at 8pm.

Then catch the Local Music Seen with Allen Estes 2011 Christmas Special at 11pm on Cape Ann TV Channel 12 (originally aired last year) featuring Dan King, Daisy Nell & Capt. Stan, Ann Marie, Bradley Royds, Inge Berge, Chelsea Berry, Dave Sag, Courtney Reid and Allen’s son Dylan Estes.  Here’s a video of many of the performers singing Santa Claus is Coming to Town. (see more air times here)

Of course, there’s lots of other excellent music in town (not necessarily Christmas — see full schedule here), including Dennis Monagle with Marina Evans, Joe Cardoza and Dave Brown at Minglewood Tavern starting at 9pm.

Don’t panic, we’ve figured tonight out for you

Raffle Prizes for the GCA FundraiserYou’re overwhelmed.  So are we.  That’s why we’ve got an itinerary that you can follow to make sure you get everything you really want to do into tonight.  It’s good practice for tomorrow (Men’s night in case you haven’t been paying attention).

For those of you who like to start early, it’s dinner at Jalapenos GCA fundraiser at 5pm.  While you’re there, enter to win some great prizes pictured to the right.  You don’t have to be present when the prizes are drawn in order to win.  Just be sure your name is on the raffle ticket.

At 6:30 catch the PART 1 premiere of Dan King on his Local Music Seen with Allen Estes farewell tribute with special guest J.B. Amero that we previewed in this post.  You can run home to catch the show, or, better yet, ask the bar manager where ever you are to turn the TV to Channel 12.

Then at 7, head over to Alchemy to see Chelsea Berry and drop off a toy for the Pathways Toy Drive.

Finish up the night at with Fly Amero and his 80s rock star guest Jon Butcher at the Rhumb Line.  Whew!

Then be sure to get plenty of rest so you can start all over tomorrow at Men’s Night.

Special Dan King farewell tribute premieres tonight on Channel 12

Just in case you haven’t heard, Dan King is moving early next year.  So, in honor of one of Gloucester’s most important music figures, we had him down to the Cape Ann TV Studio to film a special two-part Local Music Seen farewell show with Allen Estes — and guess who showed up?  The great J.B. Amero!  Boy, did those guys have fun together!  Check out this gem we caught after we were done taping and the boys just started jammin:

You can catch the Part 1 premiere of this special farewell show tonight at 6:30 on Cape Ann TV Channel 12.  It will air again on Friday at 1:30pm and Sunday at 6pm.

Now before we started taping we asked Dan if he would represent GMG and here’s what he said — PAY ATTENTION, JOEY!

Cape Ann once again featured in The Noise ~ Rockport Show Recommended for This Saturday

Last month I pointed out that The Noise Magazine recommended two Gloucester shows for the week of Oct 22, putting us on par with Cambridge (see post here).  Well there’s a new Noise issue out and this week they recommend a Rockport show (see here) specifically Amy Black with Megan Burtt at the Old Sloop Coffeehouse.  Congrats Amy Black, Megan Burtt, Old Sloop (tickets here) and Rockport!  Oh, and I guess I have to congratulate myself on being right again.  I picked this show in this post .  Here are two more videos from these rising stars, just in case you weren’t convinced by the ones I posted last week.

More Megan Burtt videos here.

Now for tonight, there’s a special treat at Minglewood: Tony & Samantha Goddess will share the stage with KBMG.  You don’t get to see all these talented artists sharing the stage very often so take advantage.

See this weekend’s complete live music schedule for Gloucester and Cape Ann here.

Music connections revolving around Gloucester

Allen Estes‘ Cable TV show Local Music Seen features Brian King tonight at 6:30pm.  On the show, Brian sings his hit Cold Rain, which was recorded by Irma Thomas, the “Soul Queen of New Orleans” (listen here).   You can see Brian at Giuseppe’s tonight.

Irma Thomas appears in the HBO TV hit Treme (season 3 premieres this Sunday night).  And in the Treme video below, you can see Irma Thomas with Amadee Castenell in the blue suit on sax right next to her (that’s Dave Bartholomew, who lived down the street from Henri Smith, on trumpet next to Amadee)

Amadee performs with Henri Smith here in Gloucester and was in Henri’s band when he opened for Aaron Neville on June 30 at North Shore Music Theatre (see him in the photo below, on the right next to Danny Heath on Trombone)

Before he went on stage that night, Aaron Neville had been reviewing mixes from his upcoming album, My True Story with his wife, Sarah, who directed the video, below, that was released exactly 1 week ago today:

Now back to Gloucester:
Veteran blues man, Bill Gleason is Fly’s guest tonight at the Rhumb Line.  He’s also one of the featured performers at the Lanesville Music Festival on Saturday followed by KBMG with Fly’s brother J.B. as a special guest.

And Pete Lindberg, who plays drums on Marina Evans‘ new EP (listen here) is performing his own songs at the Lanesville Music Festival at 5:30 (see festival schedule here)

Confused yet?  Sort it all out with the full local live music lineup here.

Updates from Marina Evans, Rob Cowsill, Block Party, KBMG & more

Yesterday, we told you that Marina Evans was releasing another song from her Dogtown EP this week and she said, in her interview, that each new song would have a little more of a groove (see post here).  This new one sure does.  It’s a little more bluesy too.  Listen:

And we said we’d have the Block Party Lineup soon.  Today, we’ve got it sorted for you in two convenient ways.  Here’s the Block Party Entertainment Lineup by stage.  And here’s the Block Party Entertainment Lineup by Time.  Either way, a splendid time is guaranteed for all!

Last week, we told you about Aurelia Nelson’s interview with Rob Cowsill (see that post here) on her show Curtain Up.  Good stuff.  If you missed it, you can listen to the podcast here.  Rob doesn’t hold back with his stories about 1960s child stardom.

KBMG is back in action tonight at Jalapenos with the return of Dave Mattacks.  It’s not too late, so hurry down.

And tomorrow (Wednesday) you’ve got six choices, including 3 hosts with special guests.  Looks like hump day is picking up as Summer winds down.  See the full lineup here.

Picks of the weekend from Boston Globe, Wicked Local Northshore & 104.9 Radio

Peter Chianca, of Gatehouse Media published an excellent interview with Chris Isaak (read it here).  Drummers: pay attention to what Chris says on page 2, and all of you who care what stars wear on stage will want to know how much his mirrored suit weighs (page 3).

You can see Chris Isaak live at North Shore Music Theatre on Thursday, with the Chelsea Berry Band opening.  All seats are good seats and there are still some seats left (and  a few VIP packages).  Get tickets here.

L-R: Aaron Neville, Don Was, Keith Richards

Tomorrow Morning, Aurelia Nelson interviews Aaron Neville on her show Curtain Up at 9am on Northshore 104.9 FM.  If you’re not near a radio, you can listen live on your computer or iPhone (get the free iPhone app here)

Aurelia and Aaron talk about his music legacy in pop, rock, soul, R&B and his new project with Keith Richards.  Plus you’ll get an idea of the music we’ll here next Saturday at North Shore Music Theatre.  Good seats are still available for this show (and a few VIP packages).  Henri Smith opens with an all-star band.  Get tickets here.

Who did the Boston Globe pick for the best music north of Boston tonight?  Our own KBMG at the Old Sloop Coffee House.  Just in case you’re not sure this is the show for you, watch the video above.  Nothing more to say.

The KBMG show will sell out, so for those of you don’t make it in time, there are over a dozen other good choices for live music.  See the full live music lineup here.

Don’t take these guys for granted

… just because you can see them every Tuesday at Jalapenos.  They are some of the best musicians on Cape Ann.  And once in a while guests show up and sit in.  Last week it was Allen Estes.  You never know what will happen.

Yesterday we published a clip from Celebrate Gloucester 2010 and people asked for more.  Here it is.  It’s KBMG Electric and they ROCK!

Now if you can’t get into Jalapenos to see these guys tonight because it’s too crowded, there are other choices.  And if you’ve never seen Henley Douglas, Jr, you should really go down to the Rhumbline at 10 and check him out.  See full music lineup here.

Surprise guest at Shalin Liu last night ~ another surprise at the Brew Pub tonight

Surprise guest at Shalin Liu last night

Miranda Russell at Shalin Liu last night with surprise guest Inge Berge on guitar (L-R: John Hyde, Joe Kessler, Miranda Russell, Vincent Briguglio, Inge Berge, Leo Ciaramitaro)

Justin Piper’s wife was in labor so Miranda called Inge at about 4pm to ask if he could sit in.  Inge was excellent with some great solos, which proves just how versatile he is (in case anyone ever doubted).  See Inge’s new hit video here.  Very different style indeed!

As of this morning there were 5 tickets left for Miranda’s show tonight.  You can see if they’re still available here.

For the rest of you, there are plenty of other choices tonight (full music lineup here).  Our good friend Allen Estes will be with Dan King & Friends at Cape Ann Brewery starting at 9pm.  He’s just finished a new song.  Ask him to play it.

Official Press Release for HERE FOR HAITI

GLOUCESTER IS HERE FOR HAITI

On Saturday, February 6th, 2010, the Gloucester Unitarian Universalist Church presents HERE FOR HAITI: Raising Song, Spirit & Help for Haiti.

GLOUCESTER, MA.    Saturday, February 6, 2010.  Gloucester Unitarian Universalist Church. 10 Church St. Gloucester MA. 7pm.  $10.  All ages.  All proceeds to Partners in Health (working in Haiti for over 20 years)  HERE FOR HAITI will include performances by What Time Is It, Mr. Fox?, Sarah Rabdau, Kristen Miller, HUM, Dan King, an African drum ensemble, dancers, and other special guests.  Hosted by Chloe Erdmann and U.U. Minister, Steve Wilson.

In July of 2006, Chloe Erdmann visited Port-Au-Prince and Jacmel, Haiti, with a group of dancers led by choreographer, Jean Appolon and musician, Juju, (both from Haiti.) The U.S. visitors were welcomed into the community and participated in rituals, including Jean’s initiation ceremony as a Vodou Priest, and a pilgrimage to Saut d’Eau waterfall in Ville Bonheur.   Chloe fondly remembers the experience, “The emphasis on community sharing, helping and healing was palpable and contagious.  And the dancing! I really don’t know how, but all ages danced during these rituals for days–and I mean that quite literally.  It was nothing short of amazing.  My friends and I would collapse at the end of the day and be dazzled by the idea that people were still dancing and would be up earlier than we would the following morning and at it again.  If dancing is any measure of joy in the soul, they have it to overflowing.”

Despite abominable conditions in health care, education, and access to clean water, Chloe was astounded by the unshakable spirit, pride and generosity in which she was surrounded.

“There was an instance when I truly witnessed how desperate the situation was concerning health care.  A rainstorm had flooded the concrete channels on either side of the road and a motorcyclist had skidded off the side and broken his leg.  A woman passing by had managed to get him in the back of her station wagon and was looking for any kind of medical attention in the area.  Two Haitian pilgrim/hitchhikers we had picked up in our truck gave their towels to help stop the bleeding on the way to the closest medical facility (an hour away.) Giving up towels may seem like nothing to us, but I later found out that those were their towels for the year. This is only one story, but it is one that haunts me when I imagine the scale of damage done to such a beautiful country by this earthquake. If a towel can help, every bit helps, and we need to help our neighbors much as we can!”

Chloe met Brian King first as fan of his band, What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? Through her friendship with Brian, she fell in love with Gloucester, spending the Summer of 2008 on Cape Ann, before moving to Scotland to earn her PhD in Comparative Religion and Theology.  She happened to be back in Massachusetts when the earthquake hit, and immediately she and Brian approached the Gloucester Unitarian Universalist Church about creating a benefit.  The church board was eager to sponsor the event.

Regarding the benefit, Brian says, “I strongly believe that when tragedies happen in places that are out of our reach, many feel powerless to help. Coming together where we are, HERE, helps strengthen our energy, vision and ability to make a difference.  It pulls us out of isolation, to join in effort and voice.  We have the power to help right HERE by raising funds that will go where they are needed most.”

Chloe also spoke about seeing Partners in Health in action.  “When I saw the hospital that Partner In Health supports, it was one of the most hopeful sights there concerning the medical situation.  Paul Farmer knows Haiti, Haitians, and the situation intimately. PIH comes highly recommended by the group I visited Haiti with- both the Haitians and the Americans – and I feel confident to donate the proceeds to their good work.”

Brian has pulled together great talent from Gloucester and Boston for HERE FOR HAITI.   Boston singer-songwriter, pianist, Sarah Rabdau was a finalist in WBCN Rock-n-Roll Rumble last year.  Her latest video, “Autumn Spills” is getting rotation on BRAVO.

Brian’s own band, What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? sold out their CD release party at the Gloucester Stage Company, and the band keeps getting bigger.  They will be joined by the newly added back-up singers, The Furies, which bring Fox’s original songs to new heights.

Mr. Fox will also be joined by songwriter and cellist, Kristen Miller, who will also offer her own set of Middle Eastern infused compositions, as well as the best cover of Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire” ever heard.

Local music staple Dan King will open the night with his rootsy sound that is known to turn any audience into a family.  Local songwriter and artist, Deb Hardy will perform with her vocal group, HUM.

The night will also feature an African Drum ensemble and both traditional and contemporary dance.   A speaker from Partners in Health will explain exactly where and how funds will be used.

“For ten dollars you’re going to experience a great night,” Brian King promises. “And you’re going to be glad that you’re HERE FOR HAITI.”

Please, contact Brian King hewasacloud@hotmail.com for high-resolution pictures of the Saut d’Eau Waterfall taken by Chloe, Chloe in Haiti, and images of the performers.
