Thursday Dave Sag’s Blues Party with ~

dave sag

Let’s welcome back that jet-propelled guru on the hautboy of honk: Mr. Gordie “Sax” Beadle. Just back from a series of successful shows at the North Shore Mall Third Annual Shoplifting Festival, he’s sure to put a smile on your face and a couple blisters on your feet!  We’re gonna wiggle our way thru the entire jukebox of R&B without dropping a stitch of laughter. But, seriously, folks, if you haven’t seen Gordie yet due to a coma or something, you owe it to yourself to make the extra effort. This guy is an amazing Saxophonist\ singer and frontman. This will cure whatever ails you, and then some.
  Backing him up will be a new guitarist , Mr. Mike DiBari, who i’ve worked with and enjoyed immensely. He knows all the chords. Cheer him on! Mr. Jeff Casper, the friendly drummer will be beatin’ the skins, and I’ll be on base. 
  Do not drive a car or operate heavy machinery until you know how Gorditol® affects you. Women who may become pregnant WILL become pregnant after hearing this guy! So stay away!
