Chelsea Berry’s “Devil and The Deep Blue Sea” CD release party

Essex, Massachusetts

Tuesday – 7:00pm until 10:00pm

Please join us to celebrate the release of Chelsea Berry’s newest full length album, “Devil and the Deep Blue Sea”.

The new record is “energetic and wild and has its moments of epic orchestration while the lyrics send the message of the story of human struggle and love and loss and all that stuff I love to write about and people can relate to.

I am really excited about this album because it’s going to be a whole new side of the music- and a whole new side of me. Growing and changing and not being afraid to leave it all out there– without losing that familiarity and approachability that’s so central to me as a performer.”

The CD will be available for purchase and there may even be a couple of impromptu performances.

Also, on Friday and Saturday, Febraury 8th and 9th, Chelsea and her spectacular group of players will perform at The Shalin Liu Performance Center. There are still some tickets left for Friday night’s performance. Don’t miss it!

Dave says,

The Bluesland Security Dept. is proud to present  my favorite of all black and blue units, the “3 Stooges” to the fragrant meadow of our stage this coming Thursday. Led by Ricky “King” Russell on gootar and vogelsang,and chased down by the likes of that cutie-pie saxist and storyteller, Mr. Mario Perrett and eminent musical frontman and drummbler, Dr. Edd “Duodenum” Scheer. We have 4 singers, 20 fingers,and a lifetime of groovy tunes to dig into. Everytime these kats come, it takes me days to stop laughing.
Come see us approximate human behavior and  watch the fur fly!
And,  don’t forget about the free shows at the Rose Baker Senior Center  the first 3 Mondays of every month. The Good Old Salty  Jazz Band holds sway from 1 to 3 pm, god willing, playing all your favorite songs from the years 1900 till now.Don’t wait for my memorial service, do it now, while I still remember who you are!
