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~

I am wicked excited about the Monday night jam. 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.

Monday – 9:00 to 12:30 Open jam with The Bandit Kings

Tuesday – 9:00 to 12:30 ~ Henely Douglas and Soul Force ~V~

Wednesdays with Fly Amero at the Rhumb Line-8:30-11:00 –

Wednesdays Only!

Hello everyone!

Looking forward………to seeing you there! :-) ~ Fly

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

Dave Says,

This is a really big week , and I know you’re all quivering with anticipation, so let’s get down on it!
This Thursday at the Rhumb Line, Dave Sag’s Blooz Bash® features the inimitable “Geezerz©”. Long a mystery in these parts, these four hoarsemen  are gathering under the head of steam created by the bloated full moon of last week, and expanding to enfold you in their lovin’ arms. For those of you who have been busy rearranging the furniture in your closets, said Geegerz consists of Dave Brown, systolic sliiideman and all-around guitarrh guru, David Mattacks, the atomic clock, on skins, Greg Tower, catarrh man,on haberdashery, and myself, Dave Sag, on base. Haven’t seen these guys in a while and I’m really looking forward to this, cuz my eyes are in the front of my head.
And Sunday, I’ll be up at Glenn’s, once again, with the Justin Quinn Band, but don’t worry, you who live in fear won’t be there…gotta cross the bridge…yada yada yada. Too bad: it’s a great club and the food is awesome! It’s 6 to 9. You can get 10 to life if you’re not careful.
And Monday, for those of you who have chosen a disabled , retired or unemployed lifestyle, why not come down to the Rose Baker Senior
Center before your nap for a rousing jazz encounter with the Good Old Salty Jazz Band? Honestly, these guys have more energy than most of you think. It’s a local, nay! national treasure and bears scrutiny. All you fancy dancers got nothing on the gliding grandparents on the dance floor. We’re there 1 to 3 p.m. Bring smelling salts? depends….

Friday – 9:30-12:30 –  Ned and The Big Babies

Saturday – 9:30 to 12:30 ~ The Bandit Kings

Saturday – 9:00 to 12:00 ~ Hoodoo Revelator

Sunday – 1:30 Mother’s Day ~ Linda Amero

The Dog Bar~

Mondays – 6:00 to 8:00 ~ Chantey Night, an open Monday 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 Cape Ann Brewing Company to  the Dog Bar . The singing begins at 6:00 every Monday 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.
