Chris Stovall Brown joins The Dave Sag’s Blues Party Tonight 8:30pm @ The Rhumb Line 3.23.2017 ~ Put on your dancin shoes!

The Weal of fortune spins around this Thursday to land on Mr. Chris “Stovall” Brown again. One of your favorite glitar commandos and rust bucket vocallists, Chris and I often play together at O’Rielly’s (more on that later). He’s truly killer and a grate stage performer.

No bogosity here.We’re wealing in the biblically named Mr. Ephraim Lowell to help out on the skins. BTW, I don’t hear those alien voices much anymore, but I’m gonna wear my tinfoil hat anyhow, just for practice.

My regret is I cannot myself attend. Our touring group

last week. Allen Estes will kindly step in as host. This will
prove to be a great chemistry, for sure. I wouldn’t miss it! ~ Fly

Dave Sag’s Blues Party tonight! Come join Dave and his friends as he celebrates his retirement 8:30pm 2.23.2017

dave-sag-8-25-2016

 

Hey! I’m gonna “retire” this week. No, not from playing music, but from all the suffering brought on by the sweat, the boils, and the tears of being a working class hero. Yes, I’m officially retiring! Who cares!! It’s not like anything else is changing.
So, I’m bringing in some of my loyal friends to help me cerebrate. First, there’s Mr.Paul F’oss of Bangor Me.,my Secretary of the Exterior who’s gonna manipulate his Emmenne Organ® and push for olive oil exploration in Maine. Nexxt, Mr. Bill Cunniff, former Rockport-o-rican whizzes in from Baltimore as Sec’y of States of Consiousness to help out on glitar doodies. He’s bringing a bunch of little plastic bags….. Mr. Steve “Silvertone” Coveny , Sec’y of Libel, hitchhikes in from Peabody to sing and play grueling catarrh. All held together by that kool kat of Ipswich, Mr. Dave Moore, my newest favorite Drummer. This is going to be dangerous, as you’ll have to listen to me sing most of the night. C’mon out and enjoy the spring-like weather.

It’s rare these days to find John Rockwell and Fly Amero
under the same roof at the same time. Circumstances have
too often gotten in the way. Well, barring some freakish act
from some evil god, it all goes away this coming Wednesday
and all will once again be right with the world. John and I
truly have a blast when we’re together, and we never falter
when it comes to sharing that joy with the audience at hand.
High spirits and good music… as it was always meant to be. ~ Fly

Guitarist/singer/songwriter Tony Frontiero has led and played
in many local cover and original bands through the 80s and
90s (Easy Street, Grapevine Road). In recent years, however,
we find him focusing on his songwriting and solo career. No
stranger to the Rhumb Line, Tony had a regular Sunday night
solo spot here back in the 90’s. His songs have a pop sensibility
with a touch of blues, R&B, folk and jazz. ~ Fly

Dennis Brennan tonight! Dave’s Sag’s Blues Party @ The Rhumb Line 8:30pm 1.26.2017

dave sag

OK, girls, this is it. You’ve been tearing at my clothes amid great wailing and gnashing of tooth ,begging me to bring him back, so , here he is: Mr. Dennis Brennan. Truly a national treasure, undiscovered and under-appreciated, this cat writes some great toons, can sing his ass off, plays a mean harmonica and has a great hat collection, to boot. I mean this! Hopefully I’ll get him to sneak in some of his self-penned doozies between the really cool blues he’s known for.

The commodious Steve Sadler, everybody’s favorite musical paint box, provides smooth backup on guitar, as does Mr. Chris Rivelli, former Broomful ‘o Blooze drummambulist and sneezeguard. I’ve been practicing all week!

His music is more than soulful voice and slick guitar. It’s
more than an evening’s entertainment – tho entertained you
most certainly shall be. Each song tells a moving story that
draws from the roots and depths of American history. From
the human spirit. From the heart. The legendary, Grammy-
nominated Jon Butcher is among us. Enough said. ~ Fly

This Thursday at The Dave Sag’s Blues Party ~ Mr. Brad Faucher 8:30pm @ The Rhumb Line 1.19.2017

dsc00234Our continuing series at the Rhumb Line continues this Thursday with the arrival of Mr. Brad Faucher. In the old days, Brad was an irregular upon these shores, but has since left the North Shore for greener oceans, i.e. getting his own Thursday gig, but I’ve managed to bribe him to come back and continue where he’s left off. An amazing blues scholar, Mr. B. will tantalize you with his meaty interpretations of R&B classics and sordid blooze.

He’s bringing along his old goombahs, Mr. John Cameron, on keys, and former Broomful o’ Blooz drummmbler, Mr. Chris Rivelli.
