A-Train Orchestra Tonight! Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb Line…come on and have a swingin good time! 8:30pm 5.19.2016

dave-sag-bw

Nobody has to cross the bridge this week as I ask several Rockportoricans to carefully drive home drunk after an emancipating evening of heavenly swinging back door blues. I’m talking the genetically altered father and son duo of Rikki and Alec Razdan  and their severely dyspeptic  rhythm section including master cocktail drummer David “Doc” Vincent, who specializes in bopping on tables , chairs and beer bottles (and empties a few, too) and the redoubtable  Mr. Dan Whelan, on catarrh, who can wheeze his way through any style.

I gotta keep up with these guys, so an emergency vehicle will be on standby for most of the night, before they, too, drive home with one eye closed, like I do. Please don’t listen to me,I may be kidding. Then again….

Everybody’s been bugging me: when you gonna bring back that fabulous guy: Mr. Brian Templeton. Well, here he is. Brian never fails to amaze me with his great tunes and urgent vocals. Plays guitar and harp, too. brian templeton wm rl

Not only that, but he’s dragging in the ferocious Mr. Billy Loosigian and the Norden Bombsight of the drums: Mr. David Mattacks. I’m gonna stand there with my wooden chair and bullwhip and try to keep these cats on the earth. Rhumb Line Thursday 8:30 to 11:30.

Lisa Marie to Host The Dave Sag’s Blues Party Tonight! The Rhumb Line 8:30pm 4.28.2016 The Joint will be jumpin!

lisa marie

Dave says,

Well,I’ve signed up for elective surgery on my flabby elbow skin (hetero-weenisectomy) this Thursday and will be be busy recuperating with a Martini or three, so , in the meantime, why not stop holding your breath and inhale a little bit of Ms. Lisa Marie who will be charging in on her caparisoned horse, lance aboiling ,to skewer you with another night of electro-convulsive blues, and other music. And she’s bringing along the right people. She’s got Johnny Juxo to bang his shoe on the keyboard, “Silverfish” Steve on scratchy catarrh, and Dana “Bonefish” Bonardi on the bangulators. Sounds like a plan. Me, I’ll be showing up late in my black suit, in case you wanna see what I look like when I buy the farm! (minus the formaldehyde).

Chris “Stovall” Brown Tonight with guest drummer Chris Anzalone Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb Line 8:30pm 4.14.2016

 

dave sags

Nose-busting Mr. Chris “Stovall” Brown returns this Thursday for yet another rousing evening of Bad jokes, incredible glitar and heartfelt vocals. Always a pleasure to have mr. B. around. He keeps me honest, knows a million toons and has a new wireless rig that allows him to communicate with the planet Altair IV, as well as jump around all over the place whilst whanging out yet another incredible solo enroute to the front door. You gotta see this.

csb dsbp rl 4.14.2016
Of course, our Gatling drummmbler aka Mr. Chris Anzelone will remain forcibly rooted to the floor and the groove via welded connection to me; the basest.

Dave Birkin Tonight! The Dave Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb Line 8:30pm 4.7.2016

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

We’re late celebrating Keaster this week as I offer you hipster replacement therapy in the guise of Mr. Dave Birkin. A newbie for you and me. I met this guy at a party where the wallpaper curled and houseplants died after a rousing set of heat-seeking blues and j**z got the audience wheezing and drooping in hysteresis. Just back from a perspirational visit to The Mount Of Olive Oyl, where he scored a pair of Roman sandals and a scutum real cheap, Dave will visibly shake you up with modern renditions of classic blues and jazz. He has a really great Sax sound. And he sings, too. I really mean this.

Blacking him up will be that nun-eating master of the gootar, Mr. Mike DiBari; our antidisestablishvegetarianism recipient of the year, and Mr. Chris Anzelone, a new piston-popping drummmbler, who’ll knock your block off. I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time and can’t wait to hear me cry “Uncle!” Do come!

dave sags

This Thursday we offer significant symptom relief with the infusion of that Tootin’ Torquemada of the Tenor: Mr. Andrew Clark. Just back from an awesome Third Reiki Massage and gentle Acubeating session, I guarantee you he is limber and smood as greek Yohgurt. I just love his high energy and stylish hats. Loves to get the crowd dancin’. Might have a concussion, too.

Completing the circuit will be the lugubrious Mr. Jack Ward, on catarrh and vocalese, and the big Papi of Beverly, Mr. Andrew Jones, on jumper cables. This is never to be missed. See ya then!
