Fresh off another iconic National Anthem performance at
majestic Fenway Park, the legendary Jon Butcher graces our
stage at the Rhumb Line this week. Among the hardest working
people I’ve ever known, my friend Mr. Butcher never allows
himself to stand still. He continues to grow as an artist, and
spends each waking moment toward that end. Accordingly,
he’ll be featuring brand new material from his upcoming CD.
Every bit as gutsy, rootsy and soulful as we’ve always known
his music to be. Come meet Jon Butcher, up close and
personal. It all starts at 7! ~ Fly

The legendary Jon Butcher hits the Rhumb Line to put his
rootsy and soulful music on display once again. Away on the
west coast for some 3 decades, Jon has picked up exactly
where he left off since returning to us a few years ago. He
is a busy and driven man for sure, with new music weaved
into every show. These appearances are quite rare, so you
just don’t want to miss ‘em when they come around. ~ Fly

Gail McCarthy’s wonderful profile in today’s Times highlights local musicians

Jon Butcher at Beverly’s Larcom Theatre

We are tremendously honored to have our gimmeLIVE work featured by Gail McCarthy in today’s Gloucester Daily Times (see article here).

In particular, we want to thank Gail for highlighting the stellar musicians who make Gloucester such a vibrant place to live, especially Jon Butcher, Fly AmeroAllen Estes , David Brown, Dan King, Dave Mattacks, Wolf Ginandes, Henri Smith, as well as some of our regional favorites Danielle Miraglia, Johnny A., John Cafferty , Michael “Tunes” Antunes, The Delta Generators, The Willie J. Laws Band.

Most importantly we want to thank all the fans — especially GMG fans — who get off the couch and come out to support live music in our little slice of heaven up here on Boston’s north shore.  As Dave Brown says, “We’re nothing without you!”

Here’s a little video treat — the Yardbirds having a bit of Halloween fun in PA last Saturday with Johnny A (who recently joined the band) on lead guitar (past Yardbirds lead guitar players include Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page & Jeff Beck, so I’d say our local guy, Johnny A., is in pretty good company.)

SELL OUT ALERT: There are only a few seats left for the Yardbirds show right down the road at Beverly’s Larcom Theatre with local favorites KBMG opening!  Get tickets here before they’re all gone.

If you missed it yesterday, You Can Still Hear Jon Butcher on Aurelia Nelson’s Curtain Up

You can see The Jon Butcher Axis this Saturday, right down the road at Beverly’s intimate Cabot Theatre.  Good seats are still available.  Get them here.

PHOTO: Jon Butcher captivates Warren Haynes at Berklee Performance Center last night

This photo by Sue Sanderson proves what Berklee Performance Center audience members were saying last night about Warren Haynes being enthralled by Jon’s guitar playing.  There’s a big announcement about Gloucester’s own Jon Butcher coming in the next few days. Keep your eyes on GMG and get the scoop first!

Show your love for Gloucester’s Rock Star, Jon Butcher, right down the road in Beverly tomorrow night

Rock stars just keep coming to Gloucester.  First it was T Max, publisher of The Noise, New England’s longest running music magazine.  (See a series of videos we shot promoting Gloucester’s music scene here.)

Then Jon Butcher moved to Gloucester and you could see him acoustic at Jalapenos, Rhumb Line and Shalin Liu.  Tomorrow, his band, The Jon Butcher Axis, releases their newest CD at a very special — and very much plugged in — CD Release Concert right down the road at Beverly’s Larcom Theatre.

In addition to music from his new CD, you’ll hear tunes from “Kiss the Sky”, a feature film directed by Norman Lang, produced by Bill Rosenthal (who will appear with the band tomorrow on keys) and starring Jon Butcher and Tara Buck Pierce (of HBO’s hit series “True Blood”).  Jon has been commissioned to score the film, which is shooting in Boston, New York, Miami, London and Reykjavik Iceland through mid-2015.  You can still get tickets here — and the best available seats are in the balcony here.  So bop on down the road to Beverly tomorrow and catch a true rock star up close and personal.  Here’s some stellar guitar work from his Larcom Theatre concert last April:

Miss Jon Butcher on the radio on Sunday? Listen to the podcast right here on GMG

In this excellent interview with host Aurelia Nelson on her North Shore 104.9FM show “Curtain Up”, Jon reveals secrets about his new CD, his new film project and his CD Release Concert on Saturday right down the road at Beverly’s Larcom Theatre.

Tickets still available here.

Best seats are in the Balcony here.

If you missed Jon Butcher this morning, catch him tonight

If you missed Gloucester’s Jon Butcher on Aurelia Nelson’s 104.9 radio show “Curtain Up” this morning, you can catch him on Carmelita’s Bay State Rock tonight at 11:30 on WAAF!  Plus you’ll hear brand new songs from his upcoming CD, which you can get SIGNED on Saturday when he debuts the music LIVE @ the Larcom, just down the road in Beverly (tix still available here).

Here’s a song you won’t likely hear tonight, but you WILL on Saturday:

 

Live tonight, Radio tomorrow: Gracie Curran LIVE with Victor Wainwrignt @ Larocm tonight & Jon Butcher on 104.9 tomorrow AM

Two great chances to connect with local stars — Tonight Boston Music Award nominee Gracie Curran and her hot band are live on stage with Blues Music Award winner Victor Wainwright and his smokin’ band from Savanna GA right down the road at Beverly’s Larcom Theatre.  Doors @ 7pm Concert @ 8.  Let’s show these two young, rising stars that a little rain & wind won’t stop us from having fun.  Good seats still left (especially in the balcony).  Get them here.

Then, tomorrow morning you can hear Gloucester’s own Jon Butcher on Aurelia Nelson’s North Shore 104.9 radio show Curtain Up at 9AM (don’t forget to set your clocks back or you’ll be listening in at 8am instead).  Jon will fill you in on his new CD, “Experienced!”, his film project “Kiss the Sky” and his concert at the Larcom Theatre next Saturday.  Tickets are selling fast, so you’d better get yours soon.  Get them here.

It’s the perfect weekend for an extra hour sleep.  You’re gonna need it with all this excitement!

Here’s a taste of these two stars:

The Big, BIG STRUM interviews on North Shore 104.9’s “CURTAIN UP” This Sunday (Sept. 28) – 9am

imageFly Amero and Jon Butcher, sit in with Aurelia Nelson on her
acclaimed morning show, “Curtain Up” this Sunday at 9am to
discuss the upcoming Big, BIG STRUM event scheduled for
Saturday, October 4 at the Gloucester House, 63 Rogers Street,
Gloucester, MA. Amero and Butcher will be joined by Cliff
Goodwin (of Joe Cocker Band fame) via telephone. The three
frontline guitarists cover much ground in a short time, touching
on various aspects of their careers and reflecting on each other’s
history together – a history that very much includes fellow “Big
Strummer”, David Brown. For those living beyond radio signal’s

Wednesday, June 18th
Special Guest: 
JON BUTCHER!

After some 30 years on the west coast, Jon Butcher has been
hard at work resurrecting his legendary status here among us
in the east through recent times.  I’ve had the pleasure of
sharing the stage with him on numerous occasions – acoustic
songwriter shows, electric blues, and more.  We’ve even
worked in the studio together along the way.  This Wednesday,
he lights up the Rhumb Line with his exciting energy and
soulful, seasoned material.  A true American legend! ~ Fly

This could be your last chance

… to see Jon Butcher’s powerful show The Jon Butcher Axis: Celebrating the Music of Jimi Hendrix in a small theatre close to home.

Don’t miss out.  Get tickets before they sell out (best seats are in the balcony)

 

Vickie wants me to choose between Hendrix & The Beatles, but I won’t do it!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock this year, you already know that 2014 is the 5oth anniversary of The Beatles’ appearance on Ed Sullivan.  I begged my parents to let me stay up and watch the show — and they agreed.  (Kids went to bed earlier in those days.)

It was a thrill!  Most everybody on my block was already a Beatles fan and the next day, we were utterly devoted.  We all started saving up for the next record.  Being the 5oth anniversary of what CBS billed as “The Night That Changed America”, you’ve also probably seen lots of Beatles tribute bands playing around.  Next Friday (April 25), Top area musicians come together (yes, pun intended) to help raise money for Gloucester’s UU Meetinghouse as The Number Nines — but this is no tribute band.  Rather, it’s three top Gloucester singer/songwriters: 3rian King, Chelsea Berry and Renée Dupuis, joined by Boston‐based multi‐instrumentalist Meff and guitarist Brendan Burns with Gloucester’s favorite rhythm section: Dennis Monagle and Joe Cardoza.  They’ll perform their own originals plus fresh takes on The Beatles, like this soulful interpretation of “I Want To Hold Your Hand” featuring Chelsea Berry on vocals:

So, we can all agree that The Beatles are the greatest rock band ever, right?  “Not so fast,” quips Vickie.  “What about Jimi Hendrix?”
“What about him?” I reply.
“You’re always saying he’s the greatest rock guitar player, who ever lived.”
“Well, of course he is.” [Here’s one of my Hendrix favorites]

“So how can The Beatles be the best rock band ever?”
“Oh come on.  I can’t choose between The Beatles and Hendrix!”

So the next night, April 26, our friend Jon Butcher is bringing his powerful new show, The Jon Butcher Axis: Celebrating the Music of Jimi Hendrix to the Larcom Theatre for their Boston area debut.  Check out Jon’s version of another one of my favorite Hendrix tunes:

I’ll be at both.  You can be too.  You don’t have to choose.

Get The Number Nines tickets here.  Get Axis tickets here.

Music Throw-Back Thursday! MTBT

Who remembers Welcome Back Kotter?

John Sebastian who wrote and sang the theme song for “Welcome Back Kotter” is coming to The Larcom Theater on Thursday, May 8th.  Join Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame inductee and writer of some of popular music’s most enduring #1 hits, including “Do You Believe In Magic?”, “Daydream”, “Summer In The City” and “Welcome Back” the theme song from Welcome Back Kotter, for an intimate evening at The Larcom Theatre.

John will perform two sets and offer a question/answer period during which you can ask him about Woodstock, The Lovin’ Spoonful, his Film & TV career or anything else you like. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to experience the music that defined a generation up close and personal.

80sWho remembers Jon Butcher from the ’80s??

Jon Butcher Axis: Celebrating the Music of Jimi Hendrix is coming to The Larcom Theater on Saturday, April 26th.

Jon’s dynamic new show is selling out theatres across the country.  Don’t miss this rare chance to experience a ROCK ICON up close in the best ROCK listening venue north of Boston!
