Lisa Marie to Host The Dave Sag’s Blues Party Tonight! The Rhumb Line 8:30pm 4.28.2016 The Joint will be jumpin!

Dave says,

Well,I’ve signed up for elective surgery on my flabby elbow skin (hetero-weenisectomy) this Thursday and will be be busy recuperating with a Martini or three, so , in the meantime, why not stop holding your breath and inhale a little bit of Ms. Lisa Marie who will be charging in on her caparisoned horse, lance aboiling ,to skewer you with another night of electro-convulsive blues, and other music. And she’s bringing along the right people. She’s got Johnny Juxo to bang his shoe on the keyboard, “Silverfish” Steve on scratchy catarrh, and Dana “Bonefish” Bonardi on the bangulators. Sounds like a plan. Me, I’ll be showing up late in my black suit, in case you wanna see what I look like when I buy the farm! (minus the formaldehyde).

dave sags

Nose-busting Mr. Chris “Stovall” Brown returns this Thursday for yet another rousing evening of Bad jokes, incredible glitar and heartfelt vocals. Always a pleasure to have mr. B. around. He keeps me honest, knows a million toons and has a new wireless rig that allows him to communicate with the planet Altair IV, as well as jump around all over the place whilst whanging out yet another incredible solo enroute to the front door. You gotta see this.

Of course, our Gatling drummmbler aka Mr. Chris Anzelone will remain forcibly rooted to the floor and the groove via welded connection to me; the basest.

Dave Birkin Tonight! The Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb Line 8:30pm 4.7.2016

dave-sag-rl-4-3-2014-1 (2)

We’re late celebrating Keaster this week as I offer you hipster replacement therapy in the guise of Mr. Dave Birkin. A newbie for you and me. I met this guy at a party where the wallpaper curled and houseplants died after a rousing set of heat-seeking blues and j**z got the audience wheezing and drooping in hysteresis. Just back from a perspirational visit to The Mount Of Olive Oyl, where he scored a pair of Roman sandals and a scutum real cheap, Dave will visibly shake you up with modern renditions of classic blues and jazz. He has a really great Sax sound. And he sings, too. I really mean this.

Blacking him up will be that nun-eating master of the gootar, Mr. Mike DiBari; our antidisestablishvegetarianism recipient of the year, and Mr. Chris Anzelone, a new piston-popping drummmbler, who’ll knock your block off. I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time and can’t wait to hear me cry “Uncle!” Do come!

This Thursday we offer significant symptom relief with the infusion of that Tootin’ Torquemada of the Tenor: Mr. Andrew Clark.

Tonight A Tribute Allen Toussaint at The Dave Sag’s Blues Party 8:30 to 11:30pm 2.25.2016

dave-sag-rl-4-3-2014-1 (2)

 

It’s a special week for me as I capture some of my favorite high-value targets and toss ’em on the stage for a big whoop-di-do. Seeing as how one of my favorite songwriters and performers passed on a few months ago, I thought It’d be a good idea to honor him with a tribute. I’m talkin’ about Mr. Allen Toussaint.

Allen-Toussaint-RIP

http://allentoussaint.com/

You may not have heard the name, but this guy was one of the most important tunesmiths of the 60’s and 70’s. He wrote over 1000 songs, some of which are classics.. We’re gonna do like 30 of them, if we can, with no rehearsal, no backsies and no money down. To help me out I’ve engaged my most favorite lovers of his music. Phew!
Let’s start with Edd Scheer, everybody’s favorite frontman, drummer and vocalist. Add Mr. Jon Ross, on guitar and vocals, and Mr. John Cameron , on keys, and me, suffering with a swollen enigma, coughing my brains out, and writing out words to 30 songs and what do you get? Hopefully a stellar night of Allen’s top notch music!
Somebody help me!

Professor Harp Joins the Dave Sag’s Blues Party Tonight @ The Rhumb Line 8:30pm 2.11.2016

dave-sag-rl-4-3-2014

Wow. I’ve been so busy. Just got back from Fat Tuesday gig and i’m bushed. So here goes:
Lets welcome back the inimitable Mr. Professor Harp. Comin’ all the way from New Bedford where the blues smells like fish, he certainly fits in here in Gloucester. He’s got a razor sharp take on all things musical and will have you quivering in your mukluks as he dives deep into the muddy waters. Backing him up will be that nun-eating master of the Qatar, Mr. Mike DiBari and the shivaree-inducing drumambulist Mr. Stevvee Chaggaris. And me, too. Showtime 8:30. See you then!

Time to wax your surfboards and slather yourselves with sunblock as we welcome back Mr. Bobby Davis aka Johnny Carwash to the Rhumb Line stage this Thursday night. He’s been busy changing his tune list and reconfiguring his brainstem to wow you with a whole bunch of new stuff for your listening pleasure. Lotta work for me, but a real hoot!
He’s bringing along the masters of mayhem in the form of Mr. Dave Brown and Mr. David Mattacks to nail down the rhythm section. Also , his son Jason will be singing a few toons. Alfred Hitchcock will be shooting some film, too. Don’t miss it!
Super Bowl Sunday sees me whooping it up early (3 to 6) with Chris “Stovall” Brown and Chris Fitz at Brodie’s Seasick Cafe in beautiful downtown Salem. A really nice venue. Come early and help load firewood around the stake!

Yours Truly,

Well, just in time for the holiday seasoning, let’s get behind the one and only exploding Takata® airbag of the blues, Mr. Gordon “Sax” Beadle.

He’s bringing along that nun-eating master of the qatar, Mr. Mike DiBari and the world’s foremost dribbler and fontman, Mr. Ed “Ed” Scheer to boot. Could be my ultimate agglomeration. I love working with these guys and I promise I’ll be better next year. Honest! Really, don’t miss this one!

Got a brand new guy to unwrap on you this Thursday: Mr. Johnny BlueHorn neé Morriconi or something like that. Been hearing about this dude for years, had a chance to play with him recently and he just knocked me out. Get this: he toots the trumpet and sings and basically sends one into the stratosphere. Love his toons. A real showman! Not only that, but our old buddy Ricky “Burger King” Russell will be returning on guitar and vocals after a long recovery from cosmetic surgery. I’ve missed him! Hope I recognize him! Drum chores filled in by the spattering pile driver hisself: Mr. Ephraim Lowell. Or is it E-frame? E-mail? I dunno, but he does. I’ll be there, too!
