A-Train Orchestra Tonight! Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb Line…come on and have a swingin good time! 8:30pm 5.19.2016

dave-sag-bw

Nobody has to cross the bridge this week as I ask several Rockportoricans to carefully drive home drunk after an emancipating evening of heavenly swinging back door blues. I’m talking the genetically altered father and son duo of Rikki and Alec Razdan  and their severely dyspeptic  rhythm section including master cocktail drummer David “Doc” Vincent, who specializes in bopping on tables , chairs and beer bottles (and empties a few, too) and the redoubtable  Mr. Dan Whelan, on catarrh, who can wheeze his way through any style.

I gotta keep up with these guys, so an emergency vehicle will be on standby for most of the night, before they, too, drive home with one eye closed, like I do. Please don’t listen to me,I may be kidding. Then again….

It was so much fun on Scott Shetler’s debut gig here a few months ago, that I couldn’t wait to get him back. So, here he is with his jewel-encrusted saxophone and his gooey vocals, comin’ at you full charge.

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

Happy New Year!  Here’s one resolution you should enforce: c’mon out this Thursday and see a RARE appearance of the Good Old Salty Jazz Band  at the RhumbLine. Caught enflagrante, these cats will curl your toes with their invigorating versions of famous early 20th century jazz, ten pin alley, tin pan alley-oop and great american schlongbook classics. There’s like nine of us, or mebbe even 13, depending on who remembers to show up. This is a rare event, and I guarantee your satisfaction or double your money back! Actually, it’s free! Showtime 8:30!

Next week: Mike O’connell and the Three Stooges, featuring George McAnn, Chuck’s brother and erstwhile guitarist in the James Montgomery Band. Spread out! Why don’t you get a toupee with some brains in it? Nyuk Nyuk.

Rockport Winter Farmers Market on SATURDAY. Plus more stuff…

Christmas in Rockport this year has been Christmas-ier than I can ever remember it being in the 14 years I’ve been around (now you all know that I’m 14 years old, because of course I was born a Rockport native). You will get in the spirit in spite of yourself, even if the weather is so mild it’s more like June (which is always so freakin cold here) than December.

TOMORROW the Rockport Winter Farmers Market features fresh food from actual farmers who grow stuff and have been growing stuff specifically for this market and the Cape Ann Farmers Market (next Saturday 12/19 in Gloucester!). So don’t let the farmers down and come buy fresh, local food. The market will also feature baked goods, nisu bread, pickles, fruits, granola, nuts, and more more more. 9am to 1pm at the Rockport Community House at 58 Broadway.

A raffle to support the work of the nonprofit Rockport Exchange (organizers of the farmers’ market) will be part of the fun. A bag of Rockport Farmers Market swag will be raffled every hour on the hour (10am, 11am, 12pm, 1pm) so buy a ticket for just $1 and have a swell time winning stuff, supporting the market, and most importantly, supporting local food producers.

Also: Spiran Lodge has the annual Jul Fest tomorrow! This is a fantastic Rockport tradition and a nod to the village’s heritage. Pickled herring can be yours, along with tons of other great food and crafts. 9 to 1pm at Spiran Lodge on Broadway. And Rockport’s annual Gallery Stroll is tomorrow, with Rockport artists welcoming visitors to town.

AND the entire Charlie Brown Christmas album will be featured at the Old Sloop Coffeehouse Saturday night! This is just too much…. come for the Rockport Winter Farmers Market and stay for the day, ending the evening listening to live music, sipping coffee at the Old Sloop Coffeehouse at the beautiful First Congregational Church on Main Street in Rockport.

Tonight! Brian Templeton @ The RhumbLine’s Dave Sag’s Blues Party 8:30pm 10.29.2015

Dave says,

It’s been a long time to have Mr. Brian Templeton missing in action, but, we got ’em this week! A big bear of a man, his songwriting, vocalisms, and harp playing are the stuff dreams are made of. Very impressive! Worse, he’s bringing along a fab nose-busting guitarist in the form of Mr. Billy Loosigian . Long a staple in the Boston scene, his hydrochloric style is sure to get your blood pumping. Add Mr. Dave Mattacks, the Atomic Clock, to the mix, and will wonders never cesium! I’m really looking forward to this and hope I can return to normal by Saturday. Do come! you won’t regret! Ask your yoga instructor if the Blues Bash is right for you.

The current line up also includes Richard Malcolm – drums, and Jim Heffernan – keys.

In the early to mid ‘90s the group worked steadily in Fanuil Hall Market place at Cricket’s and The Marketplace Café. The group became active again in the mid 2000’s.

Dave Sag’s Blues Party Tonight with Scotty Shetler @ The Rhumb Line 8:30-11:30pm 8.27.2015

Dave Saginario

Dave says,

This Thursday I’m really psyched to bring you something new and scrofulous: The Tenor Titan, Mr. Scotty Shetler. We played here in the “old” days and he just slipped through my cracks. Ah, all these years…. You gotta hear this guy play! He just oozes Omphalos! Sings, too. A great front man!

Not only that, but Mr. Pete Henderson,lonely in these parts, is making a rare appearance on catarrh and vocals. Another awesome boost to our flame-throwing lineup.Top it all off with the Atomic Clock, Mr. David Mattacks with me cringing in the background and you’ll be crying “Uncle!”. This could be one of the best shows all summer!
