Music Around Town ~ October 17 – 23, 2011

October 17, 2011 at 8:23 pm (Music)

The “Soul Machine” show scheduled for this Friday at the Dog Bar has been regretfully canceled due to the critical injuries sustained by drummer and front man Neil Buckley.

Neil was leaving a gig at the Lynn Yacht Club last Saturday night when he was struck by another car.  Long time band mate and friend Joe Mac, along with the other members of Soul Machine, will be playing in his stead, as in impromptu benefit for Neil.  There will be numerous local musicians who have played with Neil over the years sitting in with Joe and Soul Machine in support of Neil and his family.  10% of all proceeds from the bar will got to Neil and his family.  Please come out and show your support for one of the nicest guys I’ve had the pleasure of working with.

We will all be there tonight…… Friday night @ the Franklin Cafe  (7-10p)

Pottapucci (keys), T-Bone Hebb (bass), YT (vocals).  Divine food & vibe

Friends, fans, and someone who mistakenly signed my list thinking it was a petition to outlaw politicians from running for office,

I’ll be playing at the Dog Bar (61 Main St, Gloucester) on Saturday night (Oct 22, 9:00) with Thea Hopkins (accompanied by Andy Hollinger).

Come by early for dinner–it’s a great place to eat and relax. The show is sponsored by and The Noise—two of my favorite music-related businesses.

Also, if you have a TV and live on Cape Ann–turn it on tonight (Monday) at 8:00 on channel 12, to see an airing of the Rockport Peace Festival.

Rocky Kramm & Keri Anderson have been wowing crowds all

Dave says,

We’re under heavy bombardment this week as we welcome back that gad-about-town: Mr. Dave Brown, king of the wild frontier. Slide swami and Serutan® spokesmodel, he’s sure to put a spring in your step as you scrape your shoe to the boogie beat. He needs no introduction; his gootar speaks volumes.
 Behind the seems, we’ll have that roaring chainsaw of a drummbler, Mr. Frosty “Forrest” Padgett, banging away ad infinitum and, of course, my personal food-taster, Mr. Greg T., on catarrh. I’ll be there, too,just having returned from the psillium husk festival in Crakow, Polska. Cheers!

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.
