OK, folks.  Time to kiss the cold winter blues bye bye and get ready for hot spring & summer blues starting next Saturday, April 5th, with the hottest concert of the season just down the road at Beverly’s Larcom Theatre featuring Gracie Curran with Roomful of Blues horns and Lydia Warren opening.  All three of these bands have a Gloucester connection.  Gracie Curran and Lydia Warren both performed at last year’s Gloucester Blues Festival.  And Roomful of Blues performed at I4-C2 for Celebrate Gloucester in 2010.  Save the date Saturday, August 9th for the 2014 Gloucester Blues Festival!

Here’s Gracie Curran and Lydia Warren at the 2013 Gloucester Blues Festival:

Sista’s Helpful Tips


Over the past several months family and guest dinning at our home commonly ask the same question… “what is the secret ingredient that makes my salads and sauces taste so incredibly delicious? My reply is always the same “use a high quality olive oil.” Yesterday while shopping at Virgilio’s Bakery I noticed my “Favorite” brand of Partanna Sicilian Extra Virgin Olive Oil for sale.  If you want to bring a recipe including the use of olive oil to a new level, stop by Virgilio’s Bakery on Main Street in Gloucester and pick up a can of Partanna olive oil today.  Stock your pantry and begin incorporating this flavorful oil into your families favorite dishes.  I promise your family and friends taste buds will savor every last bite!

Community Stuff 3/27/13

Hi Joey,

I was wondering if you could put out a notice of a fundraiser for Chip Norton,who passed away in January.

Maritime Gloucester is sponsoring this event on Thursday, April 24,2014 at the Cape Ann Cinema

The film is, Row Hard, No Excuses; a documentary film with some local roots.

The doors open at 7 p.m. showing is at 7:30 p.m. $20 per ticket..either at the door or order on line through

This is a great film; Chip was a great man, who had many accomplishments..including rowing in The Blackburn Challenge

multiple times…dory, kayak and gig..

Thank you for considering a shout out for this very special event to raise money for a charity ( still to be decided by Chips’ family ).

                                                                             Most Sincerely,

                                                                           Debra Christofi
