Dave says,

It’s Snowbank Removal Week as temperatures threaten to climb into the Forties. I loved my forties, when I was at the peak of my insanity, rather than being the recondite cretin that I am now: talking to pigeons and wiping saliva off my chin. But enough about me: what about that finger in your eye music happening on Thursday? And that guy who had a seizure whilst skydiving? What’s the big deal? Happens to me all the time….
So, this Thursday let’s have a ball with a sorta new guy: Mr. Tim Gartland. He’s been here before. He’s really talented and deserves your rabid attention. Tim hails from Cleveland, where he was arrested for arson after setting the Cuyahoga river on fire. Now he’s gonna torch your cerebellum with his swingfoot style of harp and vogelsang. He’s got a really cool voice, sort of a cross between Arthur Prysock and Arthur Prysock. With hints of mint courtesy of Metamucil Pete, my street connection.
Backing him up will be that plisky, spoon-bending master of glitar, Mr. Jon Ross. Trader Joe’s secret weapon. Jon is one of my favorite musicians. Fluent on Guitar, bass and drums. drives a cool ’92 Buick Wagon, too.What’s not to like? Drums beaten by Mr. Jeff Casper, the friendly drummer. I’m on bass, trying once again to steal second. C’mon down and have a good time. It’ll be warm! You might even find a parking spot!

And, don’t forget: Next Monday The Old Saltys will be controlling the universe from our secret base hidden at the Rose Baker Senior Center in downtown Gloucester. From 1 to 3, we will be controlling transmission. You ought to see these guys before it’s too late and your prune juice stock tanks on NASDAC. I really mean it: it’s the best show in town. You’ll see….

Are you tired of all this snow? Are you getting a case of those “Winter Blues”? Well then we’ve got the cure for YOU!

On Tuesday February 24th at 9PM Gloucester’s very own The Rhumb Line will be serving up a hot heaping portion of Louisiana Zydeco to melt all of those blues away!

Yup. Hailing all the way from Opelousas, Louisiana, Amy Nicole and Zydeco Soul are going to share their sweet Cajun Zydeco sounds will all of us here on Cape Ann.

I got to see and hear a special preview of this band last night at the Monday Night Open Jam @ The Rhumb line and man they were good. You wanna dance…well it will be hard not to with this lively fun music.!

Dave Sag’s Blues Party Tonight with Evan Goodrow 8:30-11:30 The Rhumb Line 2.19.2015

dave sag rl mo

 

Dave says,

OK girls, lets get here pronto for the U.F.O. mass hysteria sighting of that age-old teen idol: Mr. Evan Goodrow.  Front man, Qatarist mais non oui, oui,This guy will have you rocking on your crutches with his marvelous renditions of cult classics, nouveau blues, and Transylvanian folk songs. I sure do admire this man’s dogged nerve and rubber determination. E.G. is one of our faves around these parts, and a splendid show is suspected. We’ve hauled in Mr. Benny Benson, Our Irish Ace of Pace®,  afloat since Dunkirk, to handle the the breast-beating. I’ll be on base, hoping for a sacrifice fly. So, put on that Hai-Karate® or Stetson™ and/or wrap dress (or Chinese shoes )and dance the night away while you think about yourself!

Diane Blue joins The Dave Sag’s Blues Party tonight @ The Rhumb Line 8:30pm to 11:30pm 2.5.2015

Dave says,

Well, I’m sitting around the house waiting for the snow to stop and my codpiece to dry, with Weal Of Fortune oozing out of my Elsie D. screen (no sound) and three martinis under my Kuyper belt, biting my toenails and begging for a break.
Rheumer has it that there’s another storm coming on Thursday, but I’m willing to shake my shaman rattle and toss the dicey bones on another outcome: The arrival of Ms. Diane Blue to our stage.  OMG, it’s been a while since Miss D., the Octomom® of the blues has been in these parts, and I’m so glad to have her back. Not only that, but she’s bringing along a killer band with some new people to tintinnabulate your eardrums with the latest ghastly sounds.
Firstly, there’s Bobby Gus, a veritable Boston mainstay, on catarrh. First time. Add Joe Bargar, one of my heroes, on keys. Then trip over Mr. Steve Bankuti, who never heard of me, on eggbeaters. First time, too. I’ve been dying to meet and play with these people. I need the thirty bucks. But, seriously, folks, I’m expecting to have a rousing good time waffling through the entire blue spectrum. C’mon out and dance!

The Good Ole Salty Jazz Band at Dave Sag’s Blues Party – 8:30 PM to 11:30 PM Thursday 1.29.2015

dave-sag-rl-4-3-2014

 

I’m late again! Poetic licence had expired and had to wait in line for *** tetragrammation**** to re-up my status. So let’s go!

I can’t wait for you to hear this fabulous band: The Good old (Sea)Salty Jazz Band. All 35 of them are showing up on Thursday to wail away your blues!
But seriously, folks there’s only 8 to 11 of us,depending on who has a doctor’s appointment at the time. Looks like there’ll be 10 of us this evening. We’ve been holding SRO concerts at The Rose Baker Senior Center for years, and now that our record sales have gone platinum, it’s time to play the big time! So grab a date (or some prunes), put on those soft shoes and beat me, daddy eight to the bar! and don’t forget to try one of Jeff, the bartender’s famous Metamucil-infused cocktails for the smell of success. Ahhhh.

The Ole Salty Jazz Band  play great music  at Rose Baker a few times a month. This was shot on  Monday March 19th.

Mari Martin tonight @ Dave Sag’s Blues Party 8:30pm to 11:30pm 1.22.2015

Dave says,

 

Well, I’m a little late this time around due to complications with cosmetic hippocampus surgery,but not to worry, the voices have all gone, like a pile of popcorn by my feet, eaten by unseen pigeons. Also, the lineup hadn’t been solidified till now, so let the nailbiting cease!
Let’s welcome back Ms. Mari Martin and her oversized vocal pipes to our musical carousel of a stage this week. I know, I know, she just played here last Saturday with her rootin-tootin band of musical outlaws, but this time around we’re really mixing it up.

Y
First, throw  Mr. Mike DiBari, glitarist deluxe, a veteran ack-ack gunner, into a large pot. Then add the pulsations and random cacklings of that tonsorially-challenged timekeeper; Mr. Steevee Chaggaris. Fold in two quarts of vodka-infused bass by yours truly, then pour in 180 pounds of fatback organisms and keyboard stylings of the prolific Mr. Mark Retallack. Beat well. Strain through a felt hat. Insert large funnel into trepanned hole in skull.Pour. Ahhh…. Honey, I’m home……

Rick and Alec Razdan join The Dave Sags Blues Party @ The Rhumb Line 8:30 to 11:30 January 8, 2015

Dave says,

Time to make the doughnuts. So welcome back that fabulous father/son combo plate of Rick and Alec Razdan. Two of the best known local musicians I’ve had the pleasure to work with. With their armada of saxophones and clarinets, lord knows what could happen. But by the process of random selection, i’m sure all your prayers will be answered. They’re dragging in their musical brethren from the A-Train Orchestra, namely Mr. Dan Whalen, on gritar,and David “Doc” Vincent, on drums to add to the confusion. We’re back to our 8:30 start, so c’mon down and have a ball!

Dave Sag’s

It’ll be good to have back Mr. Greg Lutrell this Thursday night. Just back from six months in in China, Greg’s bringing his wok and giving a demonstration on it’s use between sets of excruciatingly endocrining-inducing blues. He plays to die for and sings like an banshee in heat. You’re gonna love it. Our international composition also includes Mr. Benny Benson, our Irish Ace of Pace, on drummps, and your favorite Polish-Italian bassist: me. Ask your doctor if Dave sag’s Blues Party is right for you. Do not attempt to drive or operate heavy machinery whilst under the influence of three chords.
And, by the way, if I don’t see ya: Merry Xmas or Kwanza or seasonings greetings!
