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.

Dave says,

Any of you who were at the Rummie last thursday witnessed the remarkable sit-in of Mr. Sam Hooper, guitar-slayer from L.A.. Well, guess what?  He’s gonna join us for a complete evening this Thursday along with his old buddy and crackerjack frontman/guitslinger, Mr. Greg Lutrell. It’s gonna be a rainbow coalition!  Greg, one of our faves, has just returned from China where he received the Sum Yung Guy Award for the least amount of noodles in a guitar solo. And he can sing like an angel! Handsome, too. Turns out that Sam and Greg are old buddies, and are looking forward to kvetching and meshing their way thru the entire canon of sweet American soul and other roots music.
I’ll be in the background cringing along with our tonsorally challenged egg-beating rhythm ace, Mr. Steve Chaggaris. I’m counting on losing some hair, myself. We’re gonna wind this thing up and let it go; see where it takes us. It’s going to be a heck ova nite. Don’t forget to re-charge your pacemakers.
And don’t forget: almost every Monday, from 1 to 3 , you are invited to witness the materialization of the Good Old Salty Jazz Band at the Rose Baker Senior Center. We swing ,we sway , we stumble thru the entire labryinth of pre-concocted Dixieland, trad jazz, and the great American schlongbook. And it’s free! EMTs’are standing by! Do come! We’ll be there next Monday. Seeya!

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 the Dog Bar.
