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

Dave says,

This week we celebrate the Festival of Saint Pancreas, patron saint of diabetes, with the triumphant return of Mr. Bobby Davis, Johnny Carwash hisself, to our stage. Just back from a successful tour of the Isles of Langerhans, He’s all revved up and ready to jackhammer the fillings out of your teeth with his inimitable style. Tone, touch and taste: this guy does it all.He puts the “mental”  in “instrumental”. From screeching surf rock to Ventures capitalism, he’s sure to put a grimace on your face and a tear in your eye.
  Cringing behind him,  stirring that roue will be that cleanser of rhythm, Mr. Jeff Casper, the friendly drummbler, plumbing magnate and biker of note. Of course Mr. Greg T. and myself will be there to finish it off. So, don’t get hung up in your closet: Wear yourself out!

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.
