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 Sag himself,

It’s a busy week , so let’s get going!
This thursday  at the Rhumb Line, Fred is proud to present John Keegan®, martini expert, and leader of men. Best known for leading “Madhouse” over any musical cliff he encounters, Johnny K. is the MAN, pure and simple. He’ll be bringing  his ants with him, and we’ll be crawling all over you!
Side effects include the apoplectic John Hyde, jazz snob and loving husband, on Keyboards and beret, the inimitable Jeff Casper, the friendly drummer, on skins and plumbing advice, and of course, Greg T. and Myself. Do not drive until you know how John Keegan® affects you.
Now, Monday, for those of you who the Republicans blame for not working, C’mon down to the Rose Baker Senior Center. From 1 to 3  in the afternoon, the OLD SALTY JAZZ BAND does its thing. It’s FREE! We play music written for the Pharoahs and beyond. We’ll never give up! It’s a blast! We’ve got Charlie Sheen in a cage! He really doesn’t have a problem…honest!
But, wait, there’s more!  Next Tuesday nite is Fat Tuesday, and to celebrate Mardi Gras, Lat 43 has  hired yours truly with my band of brothers to cerebrate the onset of Lent. I’m giving up olives. The band consists of Gid Loring, walking encyclopedia of swing  (and Trad jazz) on Trumpet and vocals, Frank Stadler, on Keys, John Hicks, on Guitar, vocals and banjo, Benny Goldstein, on reeds and myself, on bass and vocals. Come see why I drink! They won’t let me name the band! Who could blame them! Mark Earley was gonna play, but he’s got all these chicken parts clogging up his horn. So he’s on the DL. We don’t need him!

The Orleans Trio
Best known for “Dance With Me” and “Still the One,” Orleans has more than earned its place in American pop culture history, and continues to sound better than ever.  The Orleans Trio, with original members Lance and Larry (lead voice on ALL the hits) Hoppen, plus Dennis “Fly” Amero is an intimate, “unplugged” version of this prestigious and legendary group. Their vibrant harmonies, deep/broad catalog of classics and impressive NEW tunes, along with signature guitar work are proof that Orleans, in any configuration, is indeed “STILL THE ONE” and “STILL HAVIN’ FUN”! Their audience rapport, humor, onstage chemistry and versatility make this show a favorite for lovers of all live music.
