The Everly Sisters
An acoustic female duet, one a fingerstyle guitarist the other a Patsy Cline enthusiast, both harmonizing to the songs of the lengendary vocalists of the 60’s era, especially a well studied repertoire of Phil & Don Everly hits.  Their acoustic style is intriguing and relaxing, bringing a refreshing new sound to many classic hits from the 60’s to the 80’s.  Both blues singers at heart, they expand their repetoire to also include folk, soft rock, oldies the Beatles and especially the Everly Borthers

THIS WEEK  I’m pleased to present the return of  Mr. Evan Goodreau. Movie star, jongleur, and all-weather breakfast. He sings, he plays, he winks, he drinks. Always gives me a hard time.
Pushing from behind will be that card-carrying time bomb, the redoubtable Forrest “Tucker” Padgett on skins and bones. And,as usual, my foodtaster Greg T. on catarrh and myself on base will be rounding off this agglutination to the nearest neuron.  It’ll be quite entertaining.

Cape Ann Brewing ~

Chantey Night, an open Tuesday night sing featuring members of Three Sheets to the Wind, Knockabout, and other music groups from the North Shore and the Boston area, has moved from the now-closed Cameron’s to the Cape Ann Brewing Company.   The singing begins at 8:30 every Tuesday night.
For all the schooner heads this is quite a thing to see.  If you have someone coming into town and want to hear and see something very different it can be pretty cool.

Be warned though- don’t go planning a meeting or meet-up where you think you’re going to be able to carry on a conversation while they are singing.  Best to plan it for a different night at Cape Ann Brewing.

Hey everyone,

The Topside Grill is finally opening for the season this Friday! We hope everyone had a great winter (stupid snow!), and are now ready for Spring and warm weather. We have completely renovated our entire dinning room this year and can’t wait for everyone to see it! We are expecting a great weekend so we are encouraging people to make reservations for best seating during dinner hours 🙂 hope to see you all there!

We are also featuring new photography by Judith Montferrante and the Good Morning Gloucester photographers all around the restaurant! We also have John Jerome playing Friday night in the bar/lounge/pub. Also, launching my brand new Spring cocktail menu which I am very excited about (new drinks, wine, and beer). See you this weekend!!!

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.
