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.

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

Well, will surprises never cease? This Thursday I’m proud to present The debut of the one and only Mr. Ricky “King” Russell to our stage at the Rhumb Line. In case you’ve been sleeping under a rock, this is a big deal. Ricky is the most premier Blues practicizer in the whole New England Scene. Glitarist, vocalist, and frontman, this cat does it all with aplomb and panache. Haven’t seen him in years and now our paths collide again! Sparks will fly!
  The man responsible for this is the auteur drummnambulist, Mr. Edd Scheer, one of our personal faves. He’s hipped me to the coolest cat that is what am, and I believe it. He’ll be beating those eggs and slinging words all over the place. Of course, Greg T. and myself will be there, too, filling out the wasteline. You snooze, you lose. Make a date! and come early  for Fred and Troop’s Cajun surprise menu.
  And this Sunday, it’s the Ipswich musical mind melt, once again, as Mr. Mark Earley fastens electrodes to  the likes of Tom Palance on trumpet, Roomful ‘o Blues keyboard wizard Travis Colby, and Myself on the stage of Stone Soup for another great night of musical mayhem. I can’t wait!  Make your reservations now cuz the place fills up fast! Rheumer has it that many katz and kittenz in the jazz and blooz scene are ripe and comin’ down for your glistening pleasure, so, tie yourself to the mast and have a ball. Hours 6 to 9. Don’t be ell- seven!

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.
