Dave Sag’s Blues Party tonight! Come join Dave and his friends as he celebrates his retirement 8:30pm 2.23.2017

dave-sag-8-25-2016

 

Hey! I’m gonna “retire” this week. No, not from playing music, but from all the suffering brought on by the sweat, the boils, and the tears of being a working class hero. Yes, I’m officially retiring! Who cares!! It’s not like anything else is changing.
So, I’m bringing in some of my loyal friends to help me cerebrate. First, there’s Mr.Paul F’oss of Bangor Me.,my Secretary of the Exterior who’s gonna manipulate his Emmenne Organ® and push for olive oil exploration in Maine. Nexxt, Mr. Bill Cunniff, former Rockport-o-rican whizzes in from Baltimore as Sec’y of States of Consiousness to help out on glitar doodies. He’s bringing a bunch of little plastic bags….. Mr. Steve “Silvertone” Coveny , Sec’y of Libel, hitchhikes in from Peabody to sing and play grueling catarrh. All held together by that kool kat of Ipswich, Mr. Dave Moore, my newest favorite Drummer. This is going to be dangerous, as you’ll have to listen to me sing most of the night. C’mon out and enjoy the spring-like weather.

Dennis Brennan tonight! Dave’s Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb Line 8:30pm 1.26.2017

dave sag

OK, girls, this is it. You’ve been tearing at my clothes amid great wailing and gnashing of tooth ,begging me to bring him back, so , here he is: Mr. Dennis Brennan. Truly a national treasure, undiscovered and under-appreciated, this cat writes some great toons, can sing his ass off, plays a mean harmonica and has a great hat collection, to boot. I mean this! Hopefully I’ll get him to sneak in some of his self-penned doozies between the really cool blues he’s known for.

The commodious Steve Sadler, everybody’s favorite musical paint box, provides smooth backup on guitar, as does Mr. Chris Rivelli, former Broomful ‘o Blooze drummambulist and sneezeguard. I’ve been practicing all week!

Sax Gordon Tonight! Dave Sag’s Blues Party 8:30pm @ The Rhumb Line 12.22.2016

dave-sag-rl-10.29.205

I know a lot of you are frustrated from the ravages of Father Time and an eerie lack o’ wanna so, why not get hip to the latest and greatest in the phony cyber world of adult matchmaking services? Try new Carbondating® for adults. Just send in a sample of hair (if any), spittle, or toe jam and the wonderful failed German South American doctors at our cosmetic laboratory will have you fixed up in no time with a truly compatible specimen. Just like you! And if that doesn’t work, try this:
Our special Xmas show this Thursday features the clinically-proven Magi of Mayhem: Mr. Gordon “Sax” Beadle. With his own brand of fairy dust, Big G, catnip to your ears, will have you convulsing in the aisles,whilst you beg to donate to our Musician’s Retirement Plan©, and just basically turning the old bar into a steaming heap of writhing bodies.

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.
