Our First Trip To Beverly, Massachusetts

Welcome to the Cabot Theater

This was certainly my first trip to scenic Beverly, Mass. and the Cabot Theater. The Cabot, mercifully saved from the wrecking ball is a great little music venue and the folks who live around here have a jewel in their midst.

Popcorn, anyone?

Having been host to a magic show for a number of years, to wit, Le Grand David and his own Spectacular Magic Company… there are lots of arcane backdrops and murals with this theme.

Larry and Teresa took the stage first… and played a brilliant set, as always. They allowed Jack and myself to join them for their final song… Teresa’s barn burning version of Rev. Davis’ Keep Your Lamps Trimmed & Burning.

    Thanks for an amazing evening of music and friendship. The boys were on all night long from Watch the North Wind Rise to Whining Boy Blues to Bar Room Crystal Ball. Jack was mesmerizing with the biggest acoustic lap Bass I’ve ever seen. Jorma’s guitar work was astonishing and soulful. Reverend Gary Davis would have been honored and proud. And Larry and Theresa were just magical late into the evening. No Flying Monkeys though…Enjoy Cape Cod. I proposed to my wife at the Truro Lighthouse, a beautiful spot. See you next time…

    Check out the Vega/Ribbecke interview on uTube with Jack regarding the creation process of the Diana bass guitar…fascinating and funny…chips were flying and risks were taken. I can’t say enough about it, so I’ll just leave it at that. Check it out.

    Thank you, Anna.

    It is for sure a great creation process and that Diana bass guitar will live on forever, playing in the band. (whatever band that may be and the possibilities are endless. The love that it will continue to make through musicians and those fans who see and hear it is love throughout the universe.)@Anna Stegemoeller

    Yes, I imagine there will be others buying into this newly designed acoustic lap bass, Diana. I liked how they talked about tone being the priority to pursue as a musician and as a designer- versus speed, volume, and other qualities of the sound. I liked how I learned that it was a girl’s wedge design they chose to use…and hearing the guys talk about heart based stuff – simply refreshing. AND, when I started hearing the duck…that gave me a really good laugh! Cheers to love vibrating throughout the universe, Andriy.
