Fly Amero Music Productions presents…
Shalin Liu Performance Center – 8pm
37 Main Street, Rockport MA
Tickets: 978-546-7391, or…

Both Jon and Fly will be Introducing brand new material from their upcoming solo CD’s,
and have been working great shows, becoming fast friends over the recent months.
Tickets are still available folks, but they’re going fast, fast, fast!

From a magical blend of raw talent, natural chemistry, and compelling material comes 
“Together Live,” a moving and entertaining evening of acoustic music not to be missed.

Grammy-nominated Jon Butcher is one of a select handful of influential recording artists comprising the legendary Boston music scene. MTV videos and hit songs “Life Takes A Life,” “Wishes,” and “Holy War” comprise the underpinnings of a recording/touring career that continues today. Three critically acclaimed CD’s, Positively The BluesBarefoot Servants, andElectric Factory mark Jon’s enduring love affair with all things Americana…blues, jazz, Dixieland, folk, swing, Cajun, and more.

Certified Gold recording artist and journeyman Fly Amero embraces each and every audience with passion and intimacy. Currently touring as a member of the classic American pop group Orleans, Fly draws from a lifetime of rootsy Americana, folk, blues and jazz influences… and his well-seasoned acoustic guitar and vocal skills serve to deliver emotional original pieces like “Paint It Blue”, “I Am” and “I Don’t Know Where I End (and You Begin)” deep into the hearts of listeners everywhere.

Chris Langathianos

Good morning, all. We have changed the invite settings on this so all invited guests can invite friends. We want as many people as possible to enjoy this fun event. This being said, please only invite people that you really know who will be fun and respectful of Cynthia & Pete’s property. Examples of people not to invite: the guy who likes to play with fire, the girl who thinks this is a karaoke party, the guy who wants to start a keg stand tournament…. You get the picture. See you in a few days!

Thursday 8:30 – 11:30 ~  Dave Sag’s Blues Party with Chris Stoval Brown

dave sag

Dave Says,

Let’s welcome back doctor recommended Chris “Stovall” Brown. This string biting blizzard of blues is comin’ at ya with a bucket of ribald classics and glistening lyrics. Mostly the Emperor of the boston scene, he’s been around the world and back again and again, causing me great dizziness and lack of  spanklydosis. 
  But seriously, folks, CB is the monster lurking in your darkest hours, ready to spring out and  turn your nites into days. He sings, he plays, sometimes with his teeth. Sometimes with my teeth. They’re not rented. There  will be joy all around. 
  Actually, we like to call ourselphes Sag, Crag and Chag. Or is it Chag, Crag and Sag? No bags at Spag’s! Somebody help me! I’m lost! Of course I mean that substitute bowling ball of a drummmbler, Mr. Steeevie Chaggaris. Formerly of Valhalla, his spaceship is making a detour and dropping him off just for us. We’re gonna tear the place apart! Do come!
  And thank you once again for your continued support. Live music is best!
  Don’t forget, I’ve got a Facebook page, now, against my better judgement. Send some pix or a rip-snorting comment. I’m an idiot with this stuff!
