It is unfortunate at times to misinform and I hope that if one finds an error in this posting please bring it to my attention so it can be fixed immediately if not sooner.



Please be sure to check out the links to all these fine musicians and venues on the side bar of this blog.

The Rhumb Line~

Monday  – 9:00 to 12:30  ~

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 27th
Special Guests: ROCKY & KERI!

Rocky Kramm & Keri Anderson have been wowing crowds all
over New England under the alias, “Whalebone Farmhouse”.
“Rock” is a genius guitarist and arranger. Keri is a classic
blues diva, reminiscent of a young Tracy Nelson. Her voice
is as big as Kansas and stretches far over the rainbow. You
can see for yourself. Check some of these very cool vids…
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!
I hope to see you there! 🙂 ~ Fly

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

Dave says,

This time around we welcome back Mr. John Keegan® ,uvula waggler and leader of men. Johnny K. has been very busy of late, what with his myriad musical machinations and Ebay Defcon Fives. We’re lucky to have him in one piece. He’ll be pointing the bone at you all night long. Its gonna be a dancin’ nite, so wear your thong and your Dr. Scholl’s. You’re gonna need ’em.
  Blacking him up and chain smoking will be Mr. Gym Gwin, Fred’s brother (again!) on eggbeaters and symbols. He’s recuperating nicely from that conductor’s baton attack last week. None dare call it acnepuncture! John Hyde, jazz snob and loving husband, will be doing keyboard dooties. He’ll be a little tardy, cuz he has a late appointment at the  tattoo parlor, getting ” Sandi” shot onto his forehead. Roomer has it that some mysterious sexophone guy might show up, too…who knows?
Of course, Greg T. will be there, vacuuming the gene pool, and me, too, on base, and ready to steal third…
Steak nite is over, brought to its demise since several noted Republican friends of Fred have disappeared mysteriously. So, Fred and Trooper have instigated “Cajun Nite”.This sounds truly great! so, this week, the Rhumb Line is offering a choice of jambalaya or popgun shrimp all at the unbelievable price of $8.95. while it lasts. Fred has installed seat belts on all the chairs. Troop is a really great cook, and plays a mean sax, to boot. The food is really good, you really oughta czech it out. Sure beats ordering that worm pizza at Domino’s. Free bibs for all you droolers. Do it!

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.
