Wednesday, December 7th – 7pm
A VERY, VERY Special Music Guest:
QUENTIN CALLEWAERT!

qc-fly

Folks… something very, very special will be happening this
week at the Rhumb. A young (he’s only 16) genius by the
name of Quentin Callewaert will be strutting his amazing
stuff for us all. He reminds me so much of myself when I
was his age (just a few years ago, of course). So full of
spirit and enthusiasm. He loves what he does, and it shows.
Some of you may have caught him on cable’s “Local Music
Seen” with Allen Estes – way back when he was only THIRTEEN!
OMG! And speaking of “back”… for those wondering, I am
100% back on my weekly Rhumb Line rotation. Surely,
Quentin and I will be trading a few licks, and maybe teaching
each other a few new tricks. Marina Evans is out of country
for the holidays this year. We’ll catch up when she returns.
And, something else to watch for… please don’t miss Allen
Estes, myself, Senator Bruce Tarr and many more friends on
North Shore 104.9’s live broadcast of its 21st annual Holiday
Toy Drive this coming Thursday. The fun and festivities will
be running throughout the entire day. Click the link below
for further details. All for now. Happy Holidays! ~ Fly

Dave Sag’s Blues Party tonight to host Diane Blue, Ricky “King” Russell and Ed Scheer 8:30pm 10.13.2016 There’s gonna be whole lotta shakin going on!

dave-sag-bw

Diane Blue. She’s a fireball of intergalactic rocket fuel,and no fool, either. Watch flames erupt from her harmonica as she thrills you with her cantankerous systemic vibrosis! Watch mere ordinary world-famous vocalists cringe as she lets loose with her four dimensional uvula! You’ll need your Ridalin!

Diane Blue
And she’s dragging in kicking and screaming two of your favorite (and mine!) mooseicians to tickle your brain stem. First, Mr. Ricky “King” Russell, mastermind of the Boston Blooze Scene,will be in the glitar chair ,safely fastened for that burning sensation. Then there’s “Mr.” Edd Scheer, our diaphanous yet protophonic swamp popper, on the skins. and me two, on base. Ommm…..
It just doesn’t get any better than this. I mean it!

Professor Harp Tonight! Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb Line 8:30pm 10.6.2016

dave sag bw rl

We all need a little edumacation and respeck, so c’mon down to the Rummie this Thursday for another Blooz Semenar by that quixotic quack master of indigo, Professor Harp.* He’s got this harmonica that’s plugged into either an electric razor or a blender before it gets directly drilled into your skull. Goes ZZZZZ, beep,wheee, uncle!But seriously,folks. Prof H is the real deal and since he’s driving all the way from New Bedford to sing in Portuguese for you, the least you could do is bring some kale and mebbe some chorizo.

Also, special guests Mari Martin and a dear friend from the west coast, George Friedenthal!
Mike DiBari, sizzling blowtorch of pain, will be on the guitar. Steevee Chaggaris, with that beautiful head of skin, will be on tubs.
This is the first of many weekends that I don’t have other gigs. Uh-

Brian Templeton Tonight! Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb LIne 8:30pm 9.29.2016…There shall be lots of dancing!

dave-sag-bw

It’s been a long time since Brian Templeton has graced our stage, so we’re getting out of wimp mode and into a strong belt of scotch. I’m putting my bass to the grindstone for a hone job to keep up with Mr. T’s ebullience. Brian’s the big guy with an acoustic guitar and a huge unmuffled glass pack voice. Every time he comes here it’s guaranteed to cure your IBS (irritable blues syndrome). See if you agree.

He’s draggin’ in that proton beam of a catarrist: Mr. Billy Loosigian and the Atomic Clock: Mr. David Mattacks. Ask your chirofractor if BT is right for you.

Wednesdays at the Rhumb Line – 7pm with Fly Amero ~ This week’s special guest: Chick Marston 9.28.2016

Dinner Specials Each Week!
Wednesday, September 28th – 7pm
Special Guest: CHICK MARSTON!

chick marston

 

I was about 13 years old when I first met Chicklet Marston.
Jonathan Pope picked up a gang of us and drove to his house
in Rockport to see if Chick wanted to buy his metal-flake blue
Fender Stratocaster. Chick, a well-schooled acoustic guitarist
with a Berklee Conservatory background, had never played an
electric guitar in his life. He had no idea what to do with the
thing, fumbling all over it – and I was left wondering what all
the fuss was about with this supposedly “great player”. Well…
couple weeks go by, him playing his vintage 1936 Martin 0018,
and I find myself going to music school BIGTIME, soaking up
all I could from this brilliant, classic American folk & blues
picker. His thumb was a perfect metronome on the bass
patterns. The music he played was simple and poignant.
He went on to introduce an entire world of music to me that
changed my life and helped build my character as a more
well-rounded musician. Staple Singers. Doc Watson. Jelly
Roll Morton. Mississippi John Hurt. Odetta. On and on and
on. Chick Marston will forever be my mentor and hero. Most
people around here, I think, just don’t know what they got.
This is no shit. ~ Fly
