Thursday night blues party@ The Rhumb Line with Dave Sag. Special guest: Steve Sadler  8-11pm


Dave says,

Just back from a successful engagement at the Copracabana, let’s welcome back Mr.Steve Sadler. Everybody’s favorite sideman, the commodious Mr. S is sure to curl your toenails with his rousing renditions of your favorite bunion bruisers. Joining him will be a new guitarist: Mr. Kevin Belz, Berklee teacher and all around GP. I haven’t played with him yet, but by all accounts, he’s the bees knees. Can’t wait to find out! On drummmms will be that Madhouse® skin pounder, Mr. Roger Brocklebank. Should be quite a nite. Gonna be a hot week so take care of that sunburn. We start at 8 pm for the last time. In June, we’re going 8:30 to 11:30.

New TV Show on Good Harbor Beach Erosion Premieres Tonight

Gloucester’s Bob Quinn, who has been going to Good Harbor for the past 80 years, tours the dunes of Good Harbor Beach and comments on the poundin’ it took this winter.

Here is a clip from the half –hour show that airs all  week on Cape Ann TV Channel 12.

Show airs: Monday (tonight) at 6:30 p.m.; Tuesday at 6:00 p.m.; Wednesday at 9:30 p.m.; Thursday at 8:30 p.m.; Friday at 12:30 p.m. and Saturday at 5:00 p.m.  See Channel Listings for more Cape Ann TV Shows.

Even though there’s still snow on the ground, it’s not too early to be thinking about swimming at Good Harbor.  So, to get you in the mood, here’s a very up-beat song Allen Estes wrote last Summer and performed on Local Music Seen.

Speaking of Allen, he’s appearing at Giuseppe’s this Thursday for the second week of the Singer Songwriter Shuffle along with his son Dylan and other local favorites Inge Berge, Steve Caraway, Marina Evans, Jon Waterman and Joe Wilkins.

But don’t wait until Thursday.  Lots of live music on Cape Ann all week long.  See here!

The Goddesses

Last night we caught the end of The Goddesses’ set at Giuseppe’s. It’s open mic every Wednesday night at Giuseppe’s from 7:30- 10:30.  Tony and Sam sound beautiful together and played a variety of fun, funny, and upbeat love songs. I hope to hear more from this rockin’ duo!
