Get ready for the joint to be rockin! “Mr. Nick and The Dirty Tricks” @ The Rhumb Line’s Dave Sag’s Blues Party 8:30-11:30pm 5.21.2015

Dave says,

I got a new group for ya this Thursday: Mr. Nick and the Dirty Tricks, minus one, that is, since I’ll be playing instead of their bassist. Apparently he’s suffering from a French foreign lesion. Wish him well! Mr. Nick is a well known harmonicat, although not around these parts, so cheer him on! He has the Q-Tip ability to ream out the smallest spaces in your cortical processes and will create a disturbance in your mind. Believe me!

He’s bringing along his longtime gootarist in the form of Mr. “Lonely” Gus Carlson, a fine player and vocalist as well as Mr.Rick Russo, on drums and vocals, too. I brought these cats in the night of last year’s Horrible’s Parade and they tore the joint apart! Come see for yourself!
And Saturday night, I’ll be down to Carlo’s on the loop, whooping it up with that Perry Combover Award winning vocalist and jongleur, Mr. John Keegan and the local faves: Madhouse. Yes, Carlo’s is open and we expect to have a wonderful evening, since we’ve been rehearsing all winter!  See you there!

Cheryl Arena joins The Dave Sag’s Blues Party Thursday Night @ The Rhumb Line 8:30 -11:30pm 5.14.2015

Dave says,

Our chronically underfunded musical re-education program proudly presents the return of Ms. Cheryl Arena, citizen, harpist, and vogellizing ringmaster of the third degree. I let her pick her herd of thundering magicians and it’s always a blast. So, Thursday night, her orange-jumpsuited crew consists of Mr. Pete Henderson, encyclopedic amazo, on, yes, the catarrh and vocals, Mr. Forrest “Frosty” Padgett, on the eggbeaters, and me, on the blunt instrument. Ask your veterinarian if The Blues Bash is right for you. Do not dance to excess as the miracle ingredients can cause mirth defects in your unborn notions.

Thursday Night Blues Party with Dave Sag’s Tonight~ Ed Scheer, Jack Ward, Mario Perrett and Paul Foss 8:30 – 11:30 @ The Rhumb Line 5.7.2015

dave-sag-rl-4-3-2014-1 (2) Dave says,

 

We got a real fine band this week: The Euphemystics. Not really new but famous in my own mind as a favorite to work with.So, let’s get going! Our fearless leader this time is the diaphanous Mr. Edd Scheer, the singing, talking drummbler par excellance. He sings, he plays, he has amusing side effects on the band and crowd.  As agent provocateur, we have the commodious Mr. Jack Ward (Cleaver): glittering glitarist, singer, and blues composter; a real pleasure. On sax, we got that former teen idol  and Playgirl® spokesmodel with his jewel-encrusted uvula: Mr. Mario Perrett. From Maine, we got the guy who put the bunion (Bunyan?) in Bangor: Mr. Paul Foss. We’re old friends. I don’t know why. Add me, the severely addlepated basis of blunt, stir well, and have a great time. Don’t miss this. 8:30 till…

Put on your dancing shoes! Cause, Greg Luttrell is Dave Sag’s guest tonight…@ The Rhumb Line 8:30-11:30 4.30.2015

 

 

 

Dave says,

Just back from the Sum Yung Guy food festival in Shanghai,  let’s welcome back Mr. Greg Lutrell, citizen and catarrh master. Sings like an angel, too. Mr.l spends a goodly time in China each year, but he’s home now and willing to regale you with his seasick repertoire. It’s always a pleasure to follow him around all his groovy machinations, curve balls and all. Drumming up some enthusiasm will be my old buddy Mr. Roger Brocklebank. With his hollow leg, he’ll be taking anybody’s leftovers home with him. Eat hardy and enjoy!

I’m back! And I’m ready to esophageally regale you with tales of loup Garou, after visiting the hinterlands  of swamp county, USA. Let’s go!

That means Mr. Chris “Stovall” Brown and his band of renown are in town. Chris, the ultimate string-biting, double- jointed gootarist and vogellist is ready to take you to the cleaners, blues- wise. I love playing with this guy! Not only that, but Mr. Jim Gwin, Fred’s brother,and Boston Pops stalwart will be allowed to remove his ankle bracelet and join us. I’ll be back singing’ and frolicking’ on the bass. Come join us!

Dave says,

I’m throwing Ms. Lisa Marie to the wolves this week as I bow out to the travel gods and take my muddy boots to New Orleans. I need a vacation. I’m gonna search for loop garou in the fetid swamps. I’m gonna get bit on my mojo hand. And I’m gonna eat too much. I can’t wait!
So Ms. LM is bringing in the heavy artillery in the form of Mr. Johnnie Juxo, Tarzan of the keys, Mr. Silverfish Steve on DDT glitar and Mr. Chris “Anzio” Anzelone on clubs. It’ll be a blast! And, I’ll see you next week! Always have fun!

Dave Sag’s Blues Party Tonight with Professor Harp 8:30 to 11:30pm @ The Rhumb Line 4.9.2015

dave-sag-rl-4-3-2014-1 (2)Dave says,

Let’s try someone new! Can I inveigle you to join us for a hotplate excursion into Chicago blues? i’ve got Professor Harp showing up to entertain you with his red hot harp and acute vocals.  I was playing a date somewhere recently and this guy just shows up with a harp or two, sits in, and proceeds to knock the crowd down like they’re  bowling pins. So, here he is in Gloucester. Hopefully, he’ll do the same.

Backing him up will be Mr. Mike DiBari, on guitar, last seen with the Gordie Beadle show and Mr. Steevee Chaggaris, our tonsorially-challenged drummbler. Should be a great time!
Next week I’ll be in New Orleans, but don’t worry, Ms. Lisa Marie will be riding into town with her cavalry to save the day. All her usual suspects will regale you whilst I put on a few pounds sampling that fine cuisine. Won Ton Roulez!!

Dave says,

This Thursday let’s welcome back Gloucester’s own Bobby Davis aka Johnny Carwash for another groovy night of surf toons and other related guitar ruminations. Bobby’s the best! With his effervescent style he’ll have you on the floor writhing with abandon. Along with David “Doc” Vincent on the skins, the circle is complete. We’ll be re-creating all your memories that were playing on your 8-track while you were losing your virginity. Don’t miss it!

Dave says,

So, this is the big one: The return of the one and only Mr. Gordon Beadle. The man with the golden Sax. This hypoxia-inducing master of the honky sax will have you gasping for breath as he literally sucks all the oxygen out of the room and recycles it wobbling directly into your pineal gland. Woe to those who miss this.
But, wait, there’s more: Mr. Edd Scheer, leader of the Love Dogs, will be bashing the drums and singing all those crazy old songs that you know and love. Furthermore, Mr. Mike DiBari will be plucking those glitar strings. this could be one of my all-time favorite units to work with. It always takes me two days to recover! We all sing, we all play and we’re gonna laugh our asses off, to boot.  You should come!
