Music Around Town ~ January 17 – 23, 2011

January 17, 2011 at 12:18 pm (Music)

Happy New Year!

This past year was fruitful for the music scene. There were many shows that were new for me and I have to say I am so grateful to all the excellent musicians out there bring their talent to the stage. New bands: The Inge Berge Band, Bingo Fridays, Magnolia, 100, The Bandit Kings.  Totally awesome and I could never tire from hearing them. Shows that I have never seen: The Celebrate Gloucester Concert held last summer, The Amero Family Christmas Special that was put on  at The Rhumb Line. Linda hit the floor and was singing to the guest one on one. This was such a jovial time full of fun and Christmas spirit. Fly shared a new Christmas song. I believe it is called “How I wish could fly” that he and Allen Estes wrote together. It was soft and emotional. J B ended his segment with Me and Mrs Jones, let me tell you this was a gift in itself. I was getting in my car and realized I did not thank Linda, immediately I ran back back in to do so. I believe if you loved them let them know it. You can’t get shows likes this anywhere else without paying a charge. No cover at the Rhumb Line and all around Gloucester. We certainly have it good on this Island!

Smokin Hot blues Bands out of town include T- Model Ford, Smoke Stack and The Foothill Fury ( one man band) Scott Biram (one man band), James Keys (one man band), Throw Down Blues Band, High Falutin, Watermelon Slim and The Workers, Erin Harpe and the Delta Swingers, Six Strings Down and last but not least The New Hoodoo Revelator. My favorite band The Ten Foot Pole Cats, blues like I like it

Monday  – 9:00 to 12:30  ~ Open Jam with Dan King and friends

I am wicked excited that the Monday night jam is back. 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 hosting this jam and to Fred Shrigley for making it possible.

Thursday9:00 to 12:00 ~ Dave Sags Blues Party

From Mr. Dave Sags himself,

We’re skating on thin ice this week as we welcome back those Kaballeros of Kool: Edd Scheer and Mario Perrett. Ed, our diaphaneous drumbler, citizen, vogellizer and weekend father,  has just returned from his big gig delivering his own baby with his wife, the Seeress of Roebuck. He’s been missing from these parts for a long time and we’re quivering with anticipation at his incipient return.
He and Mario, our own cutie-pie saxist and hellion hottie, are recent recipients of the MacArthur Prize, and plan on spending their spondulicks studying Ebonics in Stoneham, Ma. What was I thinkin’? I shoulda got a kielbasa or somethin’ for my efforts…
Of course, Greg T. is on board, along with his hat and Speedy West licks, and mee too, on base, trying to slide in to home. If you miss this,  you may need therapy.

As seen on GoodMorningGloucester

Roaring Mary, a Celtic music trio with guest musicians who appear at the Pleasant St. Tea Co. on the first, third, and (when applicable) fifth Fridays of every month, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.

Roaring Mary consists of Lin Swicker on guitar, banjo, and mandolin, Steve Levy on banjo, guitar, and mandolin, and vocals, and David de la Barre on whistle, Scottish small pipes, concertina and vocals. They do traditional music from the British Isles–Scotland, Ireland, Britain, and Wales. Invited guests join them each time for additional tunes and songs. They have a Facebook page, Roaring Mary, with graphics etc.

It’s a great time and very cool for kids as well as adults in a venue that is not a bar, appropriate for all ages. Hope to see you there!

Thanks for all you do here Joey, it’s a great website!!
