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. If you happen to stop by you may get to hear the Bandit Kings, Inge Berge and who knows who may appear. 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 hostingthis jam and to Fred Shrigleyfor making it possible.

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

A few words from Mr Dave Sags himself,
Sorry I’m so late, but I’ve been busy harvesting potatoes in Maine all week. Now I gotta work off all that moose fat. So, to help me work it on out, jump up and spin around, I have to get the best. And so I do; in the form of Mario Perrett; cutie-pie saxist and world class vogelizer.
He’s been busy, too, as he just got back from supervising next October’s issue of Playboy Magazine’s photo shoot of “the Girls of Aroostock County”, a smashing success. Now he’s back home ready to tear it up and shake you to your very core.
Pushing the beat from behind will be Roger Brocklebank, Madhouse timebomb, on drumms, and possibly vocals, if he’s not feelin’ too shy, and, of course, Greg “Whammy Bar” T. on catarrh, as well as myself, on base. We’re gonna tear it up!
NEXT THURSDAY: Willie “Loco” Alexander and the boys from Brazil! Featuring Billy Loosigian and Stevie “ha-ha” Chaggaris. Get there early: free cold compresses to the first 50 victims.

Thursday- 8:00 to close ~ August 5 ~ 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.

Hoodoo Revelator

I do not call myself blueslvr for nothing. I have known The Hoodoo Revelator  for along time now. Blues in high gear.  A few of the guys left band and became The Ten Foot Pole Cats .  Jeff Fabrizio the bass player kept this  name alive. Yes, alive and kicking. There is no way you can possibly sit still while these guys are playing. I hope you can come and check them out when they are in town. They have a new harp player Glen Asaro who you are going to love. He does Whammer Jammer to the moon.
J. Geils, Magic, Dick the whole band would be proud to hear what Glen puts out. Although they are not strictly blues they know how to ignite a crowd and get them on to the dance floor. Last time they played  people were dancing right up until closing time. It was wild.  Please be sure to set the date aside.
I look forward to seeing you there.

Check out what others have to say…
Howlin’ Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Hound Dog Taylor, Willie Dixon, RL Burnside, T-Model Ford, Junior Kimbrough, Muddy Waters, Slim Harpo, Bo Diddley, JB Hutto, Junior Wells, Sonny Boy Williamson, Hubert Sumlin, The Rolling Stones, Buddy Guy, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimmie Vaughan, Blind Willie Johnson, Lonnie Johnson, Little Richard, and many more….
