Hello everyone!
Wednesday, Jan. 25: ALLEN ESTES

Easily Cape Ann’s most prolific songwriter, Allen Estes holds
well over a thousand songs in his deep catalog – some of
which were co-written with and/or recorded by such country
music giants as Tammy Wynette, The Judds, Emmy-Lou Harris
and Shania Twain.  And here he is in little ol’ Gloucester.
How fortunate we all are!

Dinner with Fly Amero: 8 – 11pm
*Each week features a special, invited musical guest
Dave Trooper’s Kitchen…
Prime Rib Dinner – $9.95 (while they last)
Prepared fresh weekly by “Troop”… always good!




I hope to you there!  🙂 ~ Fly


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



Dave says,

  Well, it’s a dog eats dog world, and the first bite counts, so let’s welcome back our very own homegrown hero, Mr. Willie “Loco” Alexander, the Godfather of Punk. Yes, yes , take pride in the Atlas who holds up the entire rock ‘n roll world with his withering arms! This guy has done it all! We’re so glad he’s back with us for another dive bombing mission into the primordial soup of blues, Fats Domino, L’il Richard and his own unique  brand of intestinal rock.
He’s bringin’ his boy, Mr. Billy Loosigian with him. Not only a member of Willie’s current band, but a mainstay in the Boston scene for over 100 years, Billy’s glitar practically invented the whole Boston music industry, playing with such luminous bands as The Joneses and The Nervous Eaters, to name a few. Watch out, girls, the guy is handsome and fancy-free!
  Beating the skins and all odds will be that cranially polished Mr. Steevee Chaggaris, master of guffaws and Hadacol® spokesmodel. Of course, Mr. Greg T. and myself will provide all A.C. current. So, c’mon in for an artificially disinhibiting libation and watch your socks rot off. If your I.Q. is room temperature; leave it home.Free admission to the first 100 folks who show up with a safety pin through his nose!

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.
