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.



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.

Prime Rib Specials! Wednesdays Only! Hello everyone! Wednesday, November 30th Special Guest: TONI ANN ENES!

For those who’ve been off the planet for a while, Toni Ann is a local musician (and dear friend) who has played the North Shore for over 30 years.  In 2002 she released a debut CD colaborating with her life long pal David Brown. Her favorite format is a combination of acoustic covers and original music. Bit it’s the intimate, personal connection with her audience that makes the magic happen. Come say hello.

Dinner with Fly Amero: 8 – 11pm

The Everlasting Literary Festival – 2nd & 4th Tuesdays every month, 7pm

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.
