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. 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.

Dave Says,

The fur flies this Thursday as we welcome back that cyclonic blues behemoth, Mr. Larry Sortwell, to the Rhumb Line Stage. Ably backed by that legendary drumbulationist, Mr. Johnny Loud. These two cats played together for years in the Grapevine Road band and I’m really happy to have them with us. Greg T and myself will be struggling to fill the black hole with Spackle all night long. Sounds like a plan!
  And for those who might wish to reach escape velocity away from the grease-soaked Fiesta, why not come on over to Stone Soup in Ipswich this Sunday. From 5 to 8 , they’ll be featuring the dulcet tones of Mark Earley and his Flames of Jive, featuring such luminaries as Tom Palance, Jack’s brother, on Trumpet, John Hyde, keyboard inflammationist, on ivories, Some unsub drummer, myself, on upright, and of course, Mark Earley, on tenor and barium sax. Last time we did this ,we had the house rockin’. Look for many sit-ins and a few spit-ups. highly recommended. We’ll see you there!

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.
