From Dave Sag on the Rhumb Line’s Thursday Night Blues Party–
This Thursday at the Rumline we proudly present Mr. Steve Sadler, raconteur and excellent glitarist and vocalizer. Y’all may remember him from the days of the BARKING SHARKS, local rockabilly-goats and rave-up x-spurts. Backing him up will be Jeff Casper, the friendly drummer, and, of course, Greg T. on catarrh and yours truly on first base.
And Saturday I’m proud to say that I’ll be playing at the First Church of Newbury right on Rt. 1a in Newbury, a short ride from town with an All star lineup of Justin Quinn on harp and vocals, Jon Ross on glitar, Curtis Haynes on keys and Per Hanson on drumps.This is a really good band, and we’ll be cranking out all our hits from Justin’s new CD. Start time is 8 pm. There is home cooking available.
Admission is 10 bux. Get outa town and boogie to the primal beat!
Hope to see you there!

Prolz reunion Saturday and Sunday at Rhumb Line-
Members of the local music group The Prolz will re-unite for two hotly anticipated shows upstairs this weekend at The Rhumb Line on Gloucester’s Railroad Avenue.
The Prolz features Rockport’s Brian DeFort on electric guitar, Manchester’s Pete Kopelin on drums, Gloucester’s Vincent Briguglio on bass, and Dan King on electric guitar and vocals.
The band was an underground alternative rock band that put out one nationally released album and one independent release in the mid 1990s. Their first album, “Workers Meeting,” was distributed by Rotary Records and produced by Dan King. The indie release, “Instinct,” was produced by Tom Hambridge. Both albums are now available worldwide for digital download on iTunes, Amazon.com and Napster…. For more information, click here.
