There is great music happening every night on Cape Ann -so get out and appreciate all the great music and musicians.
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.
More KBMG live videos here.
Dan King is back in town and KBMG is going to rock your world at the Dog Bar this Friday night. Master musicians under one roof and offering up a great variety of songs. Ones that you will be able to sing along to and dance to as well.
9:00pm to 12:00pm
65 Main St Gloucester, MA 01930
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.
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.
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.
You’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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
… 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.
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.
Don’t miss the Docksiders today at 4pm as they share the stage with some of Cape Ann’s finest talent, hosted by Allen Estes, star of “Local Music Seen with Allen Estes“. Special Guests: Dan King, AnnMarie, Renee & Joe, Dennis Monagle (looks a lot like the Bandit Kings!) with Mike Lindberg on saxaphone.
More great music tonight and at 10pm there’s a new addition to Saturday Night in Gloucester: Jalapenos features a Caribbean/Island/Latin & Reggae DJ ’till 12:30. See full music lineup here.
Join us as the Docksiders share the stage with some of Cape Ann’s finest talent. Hosted by Allen Estes, star of “Local Music Seen with Allen Estes”. Special Guests: Dan King, AnnMarie, Renee & Joe, Dennis Monagle (looks a lot like the Bandit Kings!) and Mike Lindberg on saxaphone.
