Jay Aptt with Dave Sag – Rhumb Line Thursday

From Dave Sag

In continuation of our new meat series, we are proud to present Mr. Popin Jay Appt, erstwhile plumbing magnate and glitarist non parieil.Y’all know Jay from his machinations with the Mikey O. Band; breathing new life into the septum of Fishtown and wrecking your vestibular nerve in the process.We’re glad to have him; It’s his first time , so please be gentle.
Adding to the pyrexia will be L’il Steevie Chaggaris, on Skins and symbols, one of our stalwarts, as well as Greg T.,on catarrh and myselph, on base.I’ve just started a rumour that Mikey O. is gonna drop his apron and come on down for a bit, to show us how it’s done. If so ,I’m gonna wear my white shoes. Why not be the first on your block to rock yer socks with some blues in a box?

And, for those of you in the joint-replacement crowd, next Monday from 1 to 3 pm at the Rose Baker Senior Center, I’ll be exercising my rights with the Good Old Salty Jazz Band. This is a fun outfit…and I’m not the oldest member!….for a change. Anyway, there’s dancing and coffee and someone always brings cookies or something, so c’mon down. It’s just like an A.A. meeting without the guilt and speeches!

From Dave Sag on the Rhumb Line’s Thursday Night Blues Party

“Big fun this week as Justin Quinn returns for a nite of Chicago-style blues. Justin is a fine harpist and vocalist and has great cowboy boots.He’ll be burnin’ his leather on  the floor with the likes of Jon Ross, formerly Duke Robillard’s bassist, now on guitar; got that old sound goin’…. and Per Hanson, James Cotton’s drummer on…guess….drums! Greg and I will be there too, meddling and obfuscating our way thru the furrows of the blues.

This is a great unit….some of you may have purchased a CD last time around. Bring some cash and buy another one  this time , you won’t be disappointed!

Again, I lost a lot of my fan files, so if you know someone who wants in, send ’em to me!”


KBGM Release Party Reminder

Singer/songwriter Dan King will perform with David Brown, Dave Mattacks, and Wolf Ginandes for their Boston CD release party at Atwoods Tavern in Cambridge on Thursday, July 30 and in Gloucester at Elliotts at the Blackburn on Friday, July 31. The band, also known as KBMG, will play in support of their latest studio album, Western Color. KBMG played most recently to a fantastic audience at the Berklee Performance Center and are pleased to be back in Boston.

Their first combined full-length studio effort, Western Color, overflows with wasted love, light, rumors, and castaways—a ragged journey of sound and story combining folk, rock, and roots influences.

A highly anticipated album, Western Color evokes the tangled landscape of northern New England’s rugged working class, crashing waves and ultra violet sunsets; and is the culmination of efforts from some of the best artists in the area.

CD’s will be available for purchase. Featuring new hits, Goodnight Romeo, When it Comes Down to Love, Raggedy and more!

Thanks and see you soon!

If you like the Allman Bros., Tom Petty, ZZ Top, The Band, and Stevie Ray Vaughn, you will love this band.

With Jay Aptt (Tonekat) and Mike on guitar and vocals, Cliff Spencer on Hammond B3 and piano, Bob Vabulas on bass and Frosty Padgett on drums, this band keeps everyone up and dancing. This is one of my favorites!
