86 MAIN STREET,
Friends organize a fundraiser for the benefit of David Sutherland’s children at Jalapenos Restaurant.
Dine at Jalapenos and help Linda and Michael Kelly travel to India with Habitat for Humanity.
The fundraisers sponsored by Jalapenos are a win win for everyone. The customer has a super delicious dinner (with fantastic house margueritas!) and a generous percentage of the night’s earnings goes towards the event. The fundraiser also applies to take out food, although we love going to Jalapenos because the service is always super friendly and efficient and Alex Pardo, the owner, is there nightly to give a warm welcome. Thank you Alex for all you do to help support myriad Cape Ann causes and events!

Jalapenos Restaurant had a big line tonight waiting to get in. They do a fantastic job, and I’m grateful to be next door to them (on the left). So far, we’ve had a good weekend too.

T Max, founder/editor of The Noise, New England’s longest running music magazine, is all over Gloucester this month. You can see him on Local Music Seen with Allen Estes, which airs on Cape Ann TV tomorrow (WED) at 6:30pm, Friday at 1:30pm and Sunday at 6pm. For all you Noise readers who don’t live on Cape Ann, catch the show on-line here.
Then on Thursday, you can see him live at Giuseppe’s in Gloucester with the Singer Songwriter Shuffle. On April 17 he’s Fly Amero’s guest at The Rhumb Line. Speaking of Fly, he’s on the cover of The Noise this month and guess who wrote the cover story? (Read it here). Tomorrow, Fly welcomes his family as special guests at The Rhumb Line for a very special surprise birthday party for his sister Joyce.
And to top it off, T Max has a new CD, Thinking Up A Dream (get it here) featuring eight brand-new original songs, one of which is based on a spontaneous burst of creativity he had while we were shooting a video series about music in Gloucester. More on that in this post.
Just to get you in the mood, we’ll leave you with Allen Estes’ only protest song (with a reggae beat) that T Max inspired him to sing when he was Allen’s guest on Local Music Seen. You can see Allen tonight with Dave Brown, Dave Mattacks, Wolf Ginandes and J.B. Amero at Jalapenos. Bring the kids and request this song . . .
More Allen Estes videos here.
Not what, who? You don’t think Jalapenos is going to cancel their wicked popular Tuesday night music — even though Dan King is off to the west coast, do you? Nope. This coming Tuesday, Dave Brown, Dave Mattacks and Wolf Ginandes (BM&G) will be joined by Allen Estes, hence: EBMG.
But don’t wait for Tuesday, lots of great live music this weekend. See the full live music schedule here.
Here’s a quick farewell to GMG FOBs video we shot just before filming the Local Music Seen Dan King Farewell Special featuring J.B. Amero. You can see part 2 of the special on Cape Ann TV Channel 12, this Sunday (Jan 6) at 6pm.
Allen will play a request for you on Tuesday if you can tell him the name of the song he quoted to Dan in this video.
… just because you can see them every Tuesday at Jalapenos. They are some of the best musicians on Cape Ann. And once in a while guests show up and sit in. Last week it was Allen Estes. You never know what will happen.
Yesterday we published a clip from Celebrate Gloucester 2010 and people asked for more. Here it is. It’s KBMG Electric and they ROCK!
Now if you can’t get into Jalapenos to see these guys tonight because it’s too crowded, there are other choices. And if you’ve never seen Henley Douglas, Jr, you should really go down to the Rhumbline at 10 and check him out. See full music lineup here.
