Lordy be, what fun. You will see ~ Dave Sag’s Blues Party Thursday night @The Rhumb Line. 8-11

blues party mike dave frosty
We’re penetrating the Gardol® Shield this week with two of the finest slide glitar players this town has ever produced: Mr. Mike O’Connell and  Mr. David Brown. Mikey is a big favorite, what with his agglutinated vocal style and sponge-coated gritar stylings, he’s sure to have you sucking on your upper plate, whilst he  goes for your jugular.  And Brownie, of course, the systolic swami of slide, with his jewel-encrusted whammy bar and electric gas pedal, surrounded by a spaghetti mess of 2500 feet or so of extra cables. Heartfelt heartbeat duties performed by  one of our favorite egg scramblers: Mr. Forrest “Frosty” Padgett.

The last time this ensemble played together, I thought Mitch Miller was gonna come running and offer us a contract! But seriously, folks, it was a magic night, filled with psychic

DON’T FORGET:  WE’RE ON WINTER HOURS: 8 TO 11. Tell your friends and enemies!
NEXT WEEK:  Wilbur and Orville Giddings with Marque Earley and Steevee Chaggarris, the laughing drummer. The fur will fly. O.G. writes great songs. Nice teeth, too.

Rhumb Line’s Thursday Night’s Blues Party, Saturday at Lat 43, Sunday outta town

From Dave Sag

Whew! A busy week ahead as I plow myself even deeper into the electrical field, so, here goes:
Thursday nite at the Rumline: We got ‘er again: Ms. Lisa Marie, The unobliviated Queen of da blooz, Hip-shakin’ her way thru yet another evening of frenzy. Backing her up will be our old friend and keyboard octopus, Mr. Cliff Spencer. Also, Forrest”Frosty” Padgett on the drumbulators as well as Greg T. on glitar.  Me, myself and I complete this five piece septet. Another great nite!
Then,on Saturday nite, look out  for miasmic gas attacks, as I hit the stage at Blat 43 to make a mess out of the Mike O’connell band. Joey Scrima’s drumbing, with Mike and Jat Appt trying to keep it cool. Fat chance.
And Sunday I’ll be at Glenn’s Cool Bar and Restaurant in Nbpt.
with Justin Quinn and his sweet and sore band. It’s a lot of fun playin’ with these clowns, among whom will be Jon Ross, Per Hanson and Curtis “Lemay” Haines, the Pope of Nbpt. Hours are 6 to9, food is great, so , bring a date and dine by the whites of her eyes!
Oops! cops bangin’ on my door…Gotta go! Seeya!
