Last Saturday during the Bandit King’s show Joey Unis got up and did The Who’s ” Teenage Wasteland”. Let me tell you the crowd went wild. Joey is in the band The BF’s.  Take at look at their websites and listen to their tunes. All these guys are from Gloucester ………as far as I know. Here are a couple of links to check them out.

 Whoo-boy, am I excited. One of my favorite units this time: the dynamic duo of Mario Perrett and Edd Scheer.  Cutie pie saxist, vocalizer, and slumlord, Mario is sure to rot your sox off. Ladies, sharpen your nails and put your teeth back in. You’re gonna need ’em.

  Of course,Greg T.  with his hat, will be there, as usual, as well as myself, on inane rumblings and close shaves. Change your shorts, and come on down!

Topside Grille –  Upcoming Events  ~ http://www.topsidegrill.com/index.php?link=events                       

Thursday ~ 8:00- close  ~ Cool Change:
Cool Change is a music project that consists of a number of great musicians from the North Shore area. The nice thing about it is, it can change from an acoustic duo, to a two guitar trio, to a one guitar/percussion trio to a full band and fits into whatever venue. The kind of music, being blues, classic rock, R&B, and a small dose of pop  stays the same but the library of songs just keeps growing. One of our goals is to have people listening to songs and thinking “I love this song, no one ever plays this!! ” and it’s working. More often than not, people will come up after the gig and say just that, that our song selections are like old friends they haven’t heard from in a while. Check out more at                        

Friday, 8:30- close ~ Friday May 21st  ~ Bandit Kings:
The Bandit Kings are a Boston area band with two heart-stopping lead singers, Ann Marie (SAFETY) and Renee Dupuis. Featuring a rough and tumble rhythm section made up of Dan King (KBMG, SAFETY), Dennis Monagle (Qwill, SAFETY), and Joe Cardoza. The Bandits cover some hot b-sides but play mostly original work. Sounds like the rocking rasp of Chrissie Hynde and the early bell toll of Stevie Nicks the morning after…with out of this world drums, hot bass lines and a real live guitar hero.  The Bandits are an acoustic duo featuring singer Ann Marie and Dan King doing unplugged versions of the Bandit Kings set plus other Dan King originals and popular covers from their tasteful influences.
