Once upon time there was a local singer songwriter who got a steady Thursday night local gig.
This was very exciting for her to play weekly with some of the finest players in her little town. One January
Thusday night she had planned to play with her good friend, and, have for the first time, her cousin
as her guest!
Sometimes the best layed plans mean nothing…this singer songer got the flu and couldn’t
Luckily her friend, Inge Berge, put on his superhero cape and saved the night! THE END
At Katrina’s tonight 1/29 from 7-10PM Inge Berge will be covering for me, so please show him your support and I’ll see you next week!
14 Rogers St
This is one FYI that I am very excited about, tonight Thursday 11/6 from 7:00 to 10:00PM I will be playing with the talents of Thad Bernard, at Katrina’s on Rogers St. I will be there every Thursday night …sweet!
This is a new room for me and I’m looking forward to being in the downtown area…especially coming up will be shopping on Main Street for Christmas and the stores will be open Thursday nights!
Please join us tonight and as always…your support means more to me than you know.
Hope to see you there!
Tomorrow night, 5/23/14, is the kick off for Friday nights at the Castle Manor Inn, 7:00 to 10:00PM.
I will be there with the incredible….Thad Bernard and my dear friend Deby Wantman! As beautiful as the Castle may be, make no mistake, this is a very casual and comfortable atmosphere with the friendliest staff and a view that is beautiful!
On another note, last night I had gone out to see the best of the best of local talent, there we’re some tourists
in the audience asking questions about our little city of music and they were in such awe of the support and
the connection we all have, I was so proud to be part of this, again I say, I take none of this for granted!
Hope to see you,

CORRECTION: gimmesound had Inge Berge listed at the Castle Manor Inn tonight. Inge told us he’s on guitar backing up Toni Ann Enes (check her out – very entertaining), but it’s not HIS gig. Thanks, Inge for clearing that up. See tonight’s complete music lineup here.
Last night at Cape Ann Community Cinema, our boy Will Hunt was in the audience as The Cowsills sang their hits, followed by a screening of their new film, followed by Q&A, during which Will asked how they recorded so many voices (6 or 7 parts on many songs) with a 4 track in 1967. The answer was that they mixed down all the band tracks first, then stood around a single mic, adjusting each singer’s volume by the distance from the mic. You singers know how hard it can be to keep your part when you’re RIGHT NEXT to someone singing another part. It takes some serious ear training to listen for the right resonance and maintain it throughout a song in ONE TAKE. You couldn’t just fix one part. EVERY BODY had to sing it again if anybody screwed up.
Then Susan Cowsill told us that they would often break out laughing and not be able to stop — kind of like laughing in church, she said. All in all it was a great night at Cape Ann Community Cinema. Tonight it’s the screening of Neil Young Journeys followed by a live acoustic set by Forever Young, the Neil Young Tribute Band (get tickets here).
And tomorrow, it’s Rita Chiarelli with a live set followed by her film Music From the Big House. See video below of her performing These Four Walls from the movie soundtrack
