dave-sag-rl-4-3-2014

Dave says,

I’m psyched for this week! My electrolytes are running high, so, let’s get to it! This Thursday our martini-induced conglomeration starts with that Maine mind-melter, Mr. Jon Ross, on catarrh and vocals.It’s been a while since we joined forces and the chemistry has always been bubbly.

Not only that, but Mr.John Cameron has taken time off from slicing his fingers in his shop to join us on the typewriter. Keys, that is. Always a pleasure. And Mr. Chris Rivelli, of RFB fame, is diving in for eggbeating sorties that will have you running for cover. Gwan be a great time!
Now Sunday, why not spill your drink all over your flip flops dancing to the groovy sounds of Mr. Orville Giddings and company at the Mile Marker? I’ll be there with the likes of Mr. John Cameron (again!),and L’il Steevee Chaggaris, on drummps. It’s a great place to have light indigestion and several strong drinks while waiting for summer to happen. hours: 6 to 9. Semi- nudity advised.

It’s been many years since Annette Dion graced the Rhumb
Line stage. We’d have to go back to the Open Mic days prior
to the dinner format which began in 2009. She’s a songwriter
in the pure sense of the word, putting herself and her music
up on the block, having dogged the streets of Nashville like
so many artists and poets have done before her. I’m happy
to be hosting her awaited return! It all starts early… 7pm! ~ Fly

Willie “Loco” Alexander the Godfather of Punk joins the Dave Sag’s Blues Party tonight @ The Rhumb Line 8:30pm to 11:30pm 6.4.2015

Dave says,

It’s Ragnarock and roll time as we welcome back The Godfather of Punque: Mr. Willie Alexander. Just back from a tour of Asgard, his horned helmet is sharpened to the point of no return. We’ll be cranking it out at the Rhumbline this Thursday from 8:30 on, with the likes of the ferocious Billy Loosigian on catarrh, and Steevee Chaggaris on eggbeaters. When you clock the human race with the stopwatch of history, it’s a new record every time!

 

willie ds rl bw
Then, on Sunday, join me for an evening of blues at the Mile Marker at the Cape Ant Marina. From 6 to 9, we’ll be serving up copious amounts of frisson with a great band featuring Chris “Stovall” Brown on gootar and vocals, the magnificent Joe Bargar on keys  and vocals, myself on bass and a drummmbler yet awakened from  a deep sleep.
Don’t forget Monday afternoon matinees at the Rose Baker Senior Center where The Old Salties honk it up for free  from 1 to 3 P.M. It’s free, like advice!

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…

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!

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!

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!

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!!
