Help out while having fun. In light of this weeks terrible fire in Magnolia, Just Like Newman would like to ask friends to come to the Halloween party this Friday night with a couple of extra dollars or perhaps a gift card to Marshalls, Market Basket, CVS or another local business that we can donate to the victims of the fire. We’ll put out a bucket to collect everything and 100% will go directly to the victims… Don’t forget to wear your costume!

Well maybe all our talk about taking kids out to hear great music didn’t fall on deaf ears (pun intended). Plus there’s another bonus: the fact that some shows start early means you can get to more shows in one evening.
Weekend starts tonight with Just Like Newman at 7pm at Shea’s Riverside in Essex.
Dave Sag has been starting his Rhumb Line Blues Party at 8 instead of 9 for a couple of weeks now. This week he’s got Steve Chagaris & Justin Quinn Band. Check out this video from a few years ago:
Plus there are three excellent 9pm shows. See the complete live music schedule here.
This just in from Will Hunt:
Thanks to the generosity of musicians and audience, we raised over $400 for relief efforts in the Rockaways on Sunday night. Thanks also go out to the Hive and David Brooks, for providing the venue as well as the Van Ness Group, Joanne Silva, the Gloucester Times and the Beacon for helping publicize the event. Terrific musical performances were enjoyed by all. Ron Schrank, Allen and Dylan Estes, Guy Zacardi, the Satch Kerans Band, the Honky Tonk Women of Gloucester, Just Like Newman, the Gordonaires, Ed Sakurai, and finally the BFs kept things rocking until Cape Ann’s own hurricane survivor and New Orleans native Henri Smith, backed by Tucker Lindquist, Ira Levine, Janice Fullman and John Buckner, ended with a soulful and heartfelt rendition of “Wonderful World” that really drove the message home…we are all in this together.
Thanks again everyone for helping spread some love in a dangerous, but indeed wonderful world.
I don’t usually embed videos with commercials in them on GMG, but this one is worth it:
You heard it first on GMG: This just in from our friend Will Hunt:
