Bob Davis aka Johnny Carwash tonight with David Brown and Dave Mattacks @ Dave Sag’s Blues Party 8:30pm 2.4.2016

bob davis johnny carwash

 

Time to wax your surfboards and slather yourselves with sunblock as we welcome back Mr. Bobby Davis aka Johnny Carwash to the Rhumb Line stage this Thursday night. He’s been busy changing his tune list and reconfiguring his brainstem to wow you with a whole bunch of new stuff for your listening pleasure. Lotta work for me, but a real hoot!
He’s bringing along the masters of mayhem in the form of Mr. Dave Brown and Mr. David Mattacks to nail down the rhythm section. Also , his son Jason will be singing a few toons. Alfred Hitchcock will be shooting some film, too. Don’t miss it!
Super Bowl Sunday sees me whooping it up early (3 to 6) with Chris “Stovall” Brown and Chris Fitz at Brodie’s Seasick Cafe in beautiful downtown Salem. A really nice venue. Come early and help load firewood around the stake!

Yours Truly,

Dave Sag

Anyways, he’s our windfall on the guitar.MrJoe Bargar steps up on keys to gargle a few toons and  our old buddy Mr.Edd Scheer on the drummps steps in to rock your roll without dropping a stitch of laughter.

dave-sag-rl-4-3-2014-1 (2)

Happy New Year!  Here’s one resolution you should enforce: c’mon out this Thursday and see a RARE appearance of the Good Old Salty Jazz Band  at the RhumbLine. Caught enflagrante, these cats will curl your toes with their invigorating versions of famous early 20th century jazz, ten pin alley, tin pan alley-oop and great american schlongbook classics. There’s like nine of us, or mebbe even 13, depending on who remembers to show up. This is a rare event, and I guarantee your satisfaction or double your money back! Actually, it’s free! Showtime 8:30!

Hello everyone!
Fly and I are excited to come together in song this week in support of Pathways for Children, a local nonprofit whose mission — to educate, empower, and support local children and their families — is vital to our community. Every year, Pathways partners with local businesses for its annual toy and book drive, and has distributed over 1,000 toys to local children & families enrolled in their programming. This drive is special because it is truly neighbors helping neighbors: all toys and books donated stay in our North Shore community. So please, join us this Wednesday – come for the tunes, stay for the good cheer, and if you can, bring a new, unwrapped toy or book to donate!
See you there, and thanks! – Marina

Ricky “King” Russell Tonight! Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb Line Thursday 8:30pm 12.10.2015

dave-sag-rl-4-3-2014-1 (2)

Got a brand new guy to unwrap on you this Thursday: Mr. Johnny BlueHorn neé Morriconi or something like that. Been hearing about this dude for years, had a chance to play with him recently and he just knocked me out. Get this: he toots the trumpet and sings and basically sends one into the stratosphere. Love his toons. A real showman! Not only that, but our old buddy Ricky “Burger King” Russell will be returning on guitar and vocals after a long recovery from cosmetic surgery. I’ve missed him! Hope I recognize him! Drum chores filled in by the spattering pile driver hisself: Mr. Ephraim Lowell. Or is it E-frame? E-mail? I dunno, but he does. I’ll be there, too!

Dave says,

We’re cookin’ with aghast this time around with the crash landing of Mr. Chris “Stovall”
Brown on our shores. His clinically-approved method of guitarnomics and vocalizations will have you writhing in ecstasy on the dirty floor. Only Asgard®, the stain remover of the Gods, can help clean up this human stain. Pork crackling rants provided by Mr. Steevee Chaggarriss, finger popping somnambulist, and eardrum specialist. I’ll be there, too, whining about the tip jar once again. Hours 8:30 to 11:30.

A special night! hours 9 to 12.
December is heart attack month. Read it and weep! My best shows!??!!
Dec. 3 Ms. Lisa Marie. Who knows who she’ll drag in?
Dec.10 Ricky “King” Russell and Johnny Bluehorn. Wait till you hear this guy! Otherworldly!
Dec.17 “Sax” Gordon Beadle with Eddie Scheer and mike DiBari. What can I say?
Dec. 24 and 31 off to the Gerald Ford Clinic for rehab. See you next year!

Dave Sag
“It’s time again for that clinically proven master of mayhem, Mr. Evan Goodrow. He’s flyin’ in on gossamer wings to drive all you kittens wild with his neatly shaven head and croon salivation. Makes me feel really old! Anyways, it’s always a pleasure to have him around to remind me of…what? Also, a new guy: Mr. Dave Moore, on pistons, will be handling the rhythm duties, so, cheer him on! showtime: 8:30 till 11:30.”

Allen Estes has quietly-but-firmly held his tenure as Cape
Ann’s strongest original music artist for over three-and-a-half
decades under our very noses. His profound and loving lyrical
tributes to the local fishing community alone will surely stand
the test of time for generations to come. Allen has already
placed a personal stamp on our culture that will last forever.
To my definition, this is the true measure of success for us all. ~ Fly
