The Rhumb Line~

Monday  – 9:00 to 12:30  ~ Open Jam with Dan King and friends
I am wicked excited that the Monday night jam is back. I
have to say that I loved hearing The Bandit Kings and Chelsea Berry
over the past few months. They took the place of the jam and gave us
some extraordinary music.
During these jams you get some magical moments from musicians that are there
to let loose with no planned agenda. Thank you to Dan King for hosting
this and to Fred Shrigley
for making it possible.

Thursday – 8:30 to 12:00 ~ Dave Sags Blues Party

From Mr. Dave Sags,

Our interspecies smackdown continues this week with the arrival of Mr. Evan Goodreau,sizzling glitarist, sonic ruminator and generally speaking, the D cup of the Blues. Mr. G is one of the busiest guys I know, always gigging hither and yon, and we’re glad to have him stop by to show us how it’s done. He makes the bubbles go up my nose!
Sweating profusely behind him will be that tintinnabulator of time, Mr. Forrest “Frosty” Padgett, mainspring of rhythm, and all-around go-to guy. Of course, Greg T. and Myselph will be there, too.  You won’t wanna eat once you hear this leather-burning toe stubbing slow walking fast acting medicine for your feet and brainstem. So just shoot up and come on down, while you still got the strength.

Thursday -8:00 – close ~ Steppers Heaven:

The smooth, sultry and soulful sound of music being played the way it was meant to be. The songs by Steppers Heaven are as cool as the other side of the pillow. The group is made up of Bobby Bishop (vocals/guitar), Terrell ‘Model T’ Brown (vocals/guitar) and their band. Blue Soul Meets Rock and Roll. Delivering a sound that is a mix of The Blues, R&B, Reggae and Rock, Steppers Heaven is music that you will feel. They draw from their wealth of experience to deliver mesmerizing live performances that hold audiences captive. Bobby and Terelle have been noted musicians in Boston for several years, having taken it to a level rarely seen these days…appearing on the radio, on TV, the paper, documentaries, the studio, and of course the stage.

Friday – 8:30 to close ~ Ryan Faraday:
At 24 years old, Ryan Fardy has had a fantastic start to his 9-year career.  He has played to crowds all over New England and the United States (Las Vegas, California, Florida…etc), and even Canada.  He has opened for the legendary Chaka Khan, Leon Russell, Edgar Winter, Mountain, Snoop Dogg, Rick Derringer, Hoobastank, and more.  He was also the featured cover story for Boston Blues Magazine at the age of 18. With an upbringing on the Boston Area blues scene, Ryan has created his own genre, mixing Blues, Rock, Funk, R&B, Soul, and Pop.  He is striving to make his songwriting ability known even though he still holds the “guitarslinger” tag throughout the Boston area.  His shows combine the inventiveness of Jimi Hendrix and Jeff Beck, the passion of Eric Clapton, and the on stage intensity of Stevie Ray Vaughan.  Audiences typically find themselves in awe of his command of the guitar and of the stage, and have trouble believing that they are witnessing the talents of someone so young.  However, they don’t have any trouble believing that they are seeing a performer who has a very bright future.
