I’ve put together a plan, including a budget to cover recording, mixing, mastering, and pressing- for a total of $10,000.

If the goal of $10,000 isn’t met, your cards will not be charged and no prizes will be mailed out.

If we raise more than $10,000, the money will go towards promotion, touring, equipment, and all those other things that it takes get a new project off the ground.

The Bandit Kings make a record

Its no seccret how much I love the Bandit Kings. I try to make it to every show possible. This is one band that you can listen to over and over and never get tired of it. I am so excited about the new record they are making and look forward to owning my very own copy to add with the others. Maybe you could help make this happen too.

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,

This week, The Spear of Longinus Productions is proud to present the one and only Mr. Willie”Loco” Alexander .What else do you need to know? The hippest cat that is what am will be drilling out your eardrums to the teenage beat of such illuminated masters as L’il Richard,”Fats” Domino and Chunk Berry. Backed up by his longtime guitarist, Mr. Billy Loosigian, we’re sure you’re gonna need some medical attention before the night is thru. I know I will.
Pushing the beat over the top will be our sartorially challenged life force, Mr. Steevee Chaggaris. I’ll be fooling with the bass and maybe singing a bit. A night to dance and remember what it’s like to have hormones. Do come!

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.
