Monday  – 9:00 to 12:30  ~ Closed –  Happy Fourth of July

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.

Tuesday – 9:00 to 12:30 ~   Henely Douglas and Soul Force ~V~

Wednesdays at the Rhumb Line 8:30 to 11:00 ~  with Fly Amero

Hello everyone!

Wednesday, July 6th

I am sorry to announce that Chick Marston will be unable to
perform this week due to a recent hand injury (20-something
stitches, I’m told). However, the prognosis is good and he
should be playing guitar again as soon as a couple weeks!
The popular Toni Ann Enes has graciously agreed to bail me
out and appear in Chick’s stead tonight.
Special Guest: TONI ANN ENES!

Dinner with Fly Amero: 8 – 11pm

*Each week features a special, invited musical guest

 Dave Trooper’s Kitchen…

Wednesdays Only!

Prime Rib Dinner –$9.95 (while they last)
Prepared fresh weekly by “Troop”… always good!

Next Week:
July 13th: RIC ST. GERMAIN

I hope to see you there!  🙂 ~ Fly

Thursday – 9:00 to 12:00 ~ Dave Sag’s Blues Party

Dave Says,

The Weal of Fortune tilts our way this Thursday as we welcome back Mr. Willie Alexander  to our  stage at the Rhumb Line. The ineffable Willie, the Godfather of Punk, is going to help us all work out on those parallel universe bars, and perhaps reach Valhalla with minutes to spare. Jump up!
 Backing him up is his long time gritarist, Mr. Billy Loosigian, who’s been in therapy since waking up with an overwhelming desire to become an insurance salesman. Help him out! As usual, Greg T., pool boy and raconteur will be filling in the cracks, Mr. Steevie Chaggaris , he of the Napalmolive hairdo, will be doin’ the eggbeatin’ and myself, on  third base, will be lookin’ forward to comin’ home. We’re all battin’ .350!

And then, this Sunday, I’ll be dragging the Geezerz® up to Glenn’s Cool Bar and Restaurant in Nbpt. for our debut gig. This is important for us! For those of you who’ve been sleeping under a rock, The Geezerz®, aka Dave Sag’s Atomic Cocktail, is my favorite unit of all time. Consisting of Dave Brown, slide shaman, Greg T., Speedy West glitarist, Meselph, and David Mattacks, on Skins. Unfortunately, Dave M. is recuperating from back surgery (really!) so Mr. Andrew Jones, a student of his will be filling some mighty big shoes.General Curtis “Lemay” Haines ,the Pope of Nbpt.will serve as  our congenial host and will be tinklin’ the ivories. Glenn’s is the best restaurant  I’ve ever thrown up in and I’m glad to be there doin’ my thing. But seriously, folks, Glenn’s is a fabulous bistro. The food, the people ,the music, and the sightlines are the best!.Peel your ass off the bridge and drive the lousy 45 minutes up there… it’s really worth it. Ya gotta make reservations or you won’t get in. See ya then!!

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.

Up coming events

Harbor Loop Concert Series begins his next week with Jake Pardee and The Super Session Band. This will be the opening act and what a way to start.  Jake has to be one of the most promising musicians around. His persona and musical talents are as great as some of the masters that I have seen. Every time that I get to hear him and his band/bands , I am blown away. I hope that you will come out and enjoy the concert season beginning with this one.

Special thanks to Louise Welch for the excellent photography and poster.
