As always, we alert our GMG friends when a show is about to sell out. Gloucester’s KBMG (Dan King, Dave Brown, Dave Mattacks & Wolf Ginandes) are opening for The Yardbirds, right down the road at Beverly’s intimate Larcom Theatre this Friday 11/20 and there are 8 single seats left, but we added 8 more standing tickets behind the last row in the Orchestra. The standing tickets are only available by phone on a first-call-first-served basis, so if you want them, please call 978.525.9093. You can leave a message if you get voice-mail and one of us will call you back.
You may know that Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton were all former lead guitarists for The Yardbirds. Malden, MA native Johnny A is their newest lead guitarist and by all accounts is carrying on the tradition in stellar fashion. You may have also heard the story of when Jimmy Page left the Yardbirds to form his own band, he was going to call it “The New Yardbirds” and his friend Kieth Moon quipped, “Well that’ll go over like a led zeppelin.”
Here’s a video of a Yardbirds show from a couple of days ago. They are HOT!
