Israel Vibrations

Israel Vibrations
Event on 2015-10-08 21:00:00
with IrieFuse
Israel Vibration recently released a new album called Man Up that is another great classic. They have a strong tour history in North America featuring four vocalists and some of the best recording musicians in Reggae – the Roots Radics. Israel Vibration has a very strong catalogue of music that was spread out all over the world before the CD market dropped. Ras Records and Jim Fox of Lion and Fox recording Studios in Washington DC did alot of great work helping build their catalogue. Contact Peter, Kings Music International if you are interested in booking festivals or one off dates.Mention the name Israel Vibration in reggae music circles and watch the warmth of recognition and appreciation of anyone who has seen or heard this very special vocal group. The positive vibrations emanating from the music of Israel Vibration have been spellbinding audiences, critics and DJs for over three decades. The lead vocalists, Wiss and Skelly cast a harmonious musical spell, weaving traditional roots reggae with a mesmerizing sound and deeply spiritual message. Israel Vibrations have been touring very strong worldwide for many years. They are regularly featured on most of the major Reggae Festivals. Last summer, 2012 they performed on Reggae in the Desert in Las Vegas and at the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival in Mendocino, CA. 2013 they performed on Reggae on the River and Reggae on the Rocks in Colorado.Israel Vibration members Cecil Spence (Skelly) and Lascelle Bulgin (Wiss) were born in Jamaica, West Indies. Each is a victim of Poliomyelitis (Polio). They met as children in the Mona Rehabilitation Center, into which they were placed because of their families' limited resources and their needs for specialized medical care. They learned early on the necessity for developing survival skills, and although polio is an undeniably crippling and debilitating disease, the youths never let their physically challenging situation supercede their willpower and their creative abilities. They found strength in the faith of Rastafari through the guidance of His Imperial Majesty, Emperor Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia, and began composing and singing songs which expressed their spiritual beliefs.Their spirituality and stance on issues relating to their residency at the Mona Rehabilitation Center caused them to be expelled from that institution. Undaunted, they found solace, comfort, and sustenance in their music, which won them the support of their local community and provided them with encouragement to pursue their music careers. They began recording in 1976, enjoying a hit with the poignant Same Song, which was licensed to EMI and brought the group international attention. Their musical careers seemed to be taking off, but, like many Jamaican artists, Israel Vibration's recording career was set back by a local industry plagued at that time by questionable accounting practices, musical piracy, and a lack of tour support. In 1983, the group broke up and its members moved to the States both for superior medical care and to pursue solo projects.In 1988, each of the members approached Doctor Dread, president and founder of RAS Records, about solo recordings. Dr. Dread, who had greatly admired Israel Vibration's unique, resonating sound, took heed from the words of Marcus Garvey, and, telling them that "unity is strength," recommended that the members unite. They accepted, and the rest of the story is one of a beautiful relationship that began with Strength of My Life, and continued with Praises, Forever, Vibes Alive, IV, On The Rock, Free to Move, and several dub albums. On the Rock garnered much praise the single and video "Rudeboy Shufflin'," which, along with the "Feeling Irie" video, has been aired on BET as well as other television programs throughout the US and abroad. On The Rock and its follow-up Free To Move reached their height of success upon reaching number one on the CMJ New World charts. Their 1999 release, Pay the Piper, displays some of the strong material songwriters Skelly and Wiss are known for, and the album's featured video "Hard Road" was seen in 3900 Blockbuster video stores during the month of January, 2000.Their album Jericho, released May 16, 2000, is undeniably their strongest work in years and features the best musicians and harmonizers Jamaica has to offer. Skelly and Wiss fully commit to each honest lyric and sing from the heart with the true spirit of universality. Israel Vibration has been working closely with RAS Records for a long time, and will no doubt continue to do so while they redefine the term "Roots Reggae" for the new millennium.Over 30 years have passed since Israel Vibration surfaced on the reggae scene, and though the erstwhile Jamaican trio has been pared to two members, it continues to make much of the competition's output seem stilted by comparison. Their music features trade-off lead vocals, sweet soul harmonies and recurring themes of struggle, affirmation, perseverance and optimism.

Paula Poundstone Headlines the Bomhard Theater at The Kentucky Center

Paula Poundstone Headlines the Bomhard Theater at The Kentucky Center
Event on 2015-10-17 20:00:00
The Bomhard Theater at the Kentucky Center in Louisville, KY welcomes comedian Paula Poundstone on Saturday, October 17th. Thirty two years ago Paula Poundstone climbed on a Greyhound bus and traveled across the country — stopping in at open mic nights at comedy clubs as she went. A high school drop-out, she went on to become one of the great humorists of our time. You can hear her through your laughter as a regular panelist on NPR’s popular rascal of a weekly news quiz show, Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me. Watch for Paula as she lends her distinctive voice to the character “Forgetter Paula” in the new Disney Pixar film “Inside Out” about a young girl Riley who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job. The movie chronicles and the emotional roller coaster that change can bring. Riley’s emotions include; Joy (Amy Poehler,) Fear (Bill Hader,) Anger (Lewis Black,) Disgust (Mindy Kaling,) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith.) “Inside Out” opens nationwide June 19, 2015. Check out the trailer at:

Poundstone tours regularly, performing standup comedy across the country, causing Bob Zany with the Boston Globe to write: “Poundstone can regale an audience for several hours with her distinctive brand of wry, intelligent and witty comedy.” Audience members may put it a little less elegantly: “I peed my pants.”

While there is no doubt that Poundstone is funny, the thing that probably separates her from the pack of comics working today and that has made her a legend among comics and audiences alike is her ability to be spontaneous with a crowd. Poundstone says: “No two shows I do are the same. It's not that I don't repeat material. I do. My shows, when they're good, and I like to think they often are, are like a cocktail party. When you first get there, you talk about how badly you got lost and how hard it was to find parking. Then you tell a story about your kids or what you just saw on the news. You meet some new people and ask them about themselves. Then, some-one says, "Tell that story you used to tell," and then someone on the other side of the room spills a drink, and you mock them. No one ever applauds me when I leave a party, though. I think they high five.”

Paula's interchanges with the audience are never mean or done at a person’s expense. She even manages to handle politics without provoking the pall of disapproval less artful comics have re-ceived.

Her most recent comedy CD, I HEART JOKES: Paula Tells Them in Boston was recorded dur-ing a performance at the Wilbur Theatre in the heart of the city and was released on April fool’s Day 2013. This was a follow up to her successful first CD I HEART JOKES: Paula Tells Them in Maine that was released in 2009.

Over the span of her career, Paula has amassed a list of awards and accolades that stretch the length of a great big tall guy’s arm. She not only shot through the glass ceiling, she never even acknowledged that it was there. Never one to stereotype herself as a ‘female comedian’ or limit herself to comedy from a ‘female’ point of view, in the early 90’s she was the first woman to win the cable ACE for Best Standup Comedy Special and the first woman to perform standup at the prestigious White House Correspondents dinner where she joined the current President as part of the evening’s entertainment.

In November, 2012 in Washington DC, Paula was honored, along with Nina Totenberg, NPR correspondent; David Brooks, New York Times columnist; and Bob Mankoff, New York-er Cartoon Editor, with the 2012 Moment Magazine Creativity Award at their 35th anniversary symposium and dinner, followed by a one-hour panel on the intersection of humor and politics. Just weeks later Paula was hand-picked to interview Calvin Trillin for the Los Angeles-series-darling, Writers Bloc, a series that presents conversations between the featured author and anoth-er interesting thinker.

Paula has starred in comedy specials on HBO and BRAVO, won an Emmy Award, served as "official correspondent" for The Tonight Show during the 1992 Presidential race, pioneered the art of backstage commentary during an Emmy telecast, steps up to the plate for causes she be-lieves in, and is almost always included in any compendium – be it film, television or print, not-ing comedic influences of the 20th/21st century, most recently, We Killed: The Rise of Women in American Comedy (October 2012, Sarah Crichton Books). Paula also appears on "Late Night w/Craig Ferguson" about 3 times a year and she'll do an occasional editorial for NPR's "All Things Considered".

In April 2013 NPR Laughter Therapy (Highbridge Audio) released a 2-CD collection of NPR’s best interviews and stories with “funny folks” including Paula’s Talk of the Nation interview. If it means anything to anyone, she is recognized as one of Comedy Central's 100 greatest stand-ups of all time. Paula won an American Comedy Award for Best Female Standup Comic, and in 2010 she was one of a select group voted into the Comedy Hall of Fame.

Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me is now heard in 5 million homes across the country, including all of the major markets, internationally on NPR Worldwide and on the Internet via podcast. In 2008 it received a Peabody Award for broadcasting excellence. On the show Paula gets to match wits with some of the country’s leading pundits. In May 2013 the show filmed its first Cinecast from New York's Town Hall and Paula was one of the Panelists. The show made its television debut on BBC America with a “2011 Year In Review.” Paula was on that panel as well. Poundstone quickly goes on record about how much she loves being part of the show saying: “I am a proud member of the endorphin production industry. They allow me to say whatever I want on Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me. The panelists are unscripted, so it's perfect for me. I feel like I'm a batter in a batting cage. I get lobbed topics. Sometimes I just watch them go by, but every now and then I get a piece of one. If the others didn't cheat, it would be an almost perfect work experience.”

Paula is also a published author and lecturer. Her hard cover book, There is Nothing In This Book That I Meant To Say (Crown, 2006, with a forward by Mary Tyler Moore) is still in release on audio (Highbridge) and in paperback. Other writing credits include the back page columnist of Mother Jones, The Los Angeles Times, Entertainment Weekly, and Glamour magazine.

Not only a writer, but an avid reader, Paula continues her role for the American Library Associa-tion (ALA) as the Nat'l spokesperson for United for Libraries, their "Friends of Libraries" nation-al network – a citizens support group who work to raise awareness and much needed funds to support their local libraries. Paula has appeared as the headliner at the ALA's annual conference for their Laughs On Us panel the last four years, and to quote Sally Reed, the ALA Nat'l Direc-tor: "…you'd have to come to one of these events to see how adored Paula is by librarians. We love her and it's never repetitive." Paula has hosted many events to great success, including the Art Directors Guild Awards an unprecedented 4 times.

The National Endowment for the Arts recently requested Poundstone to sit down for a chat about the art of comedy and her career. Take a listen:

Sie ist eine der erlesensten Stimmen Großbritanniens im Bereich Singer/Songwriter Pop.

with Inter Arma, Indian Handcrafts, Irata
Since this Savannah, Georgia quintet first formed in early 2001, worrying about genre limitations has never been a priority. Taking musical chances, however, always has been. While KYLESA are as heavy as any band out there, they are beholden to no one scene and no preconceived notions of what heavy music should be."Lots of people like to stick to one kind of music," guitarist/vocalist Philip Cope elaborates, "and even with the underground, lots of people segregate themselves into small little categories and place lots of imaginary rules on these scenes.""We just like playing heavy music and we've always liked playing it regardless of what is popular or trendy," guitarist/vocalist Laura Pleasants adds. "It's most rewarding for us to try and push our own boundaries of what we can to do with our music and hopefully, in the end, offer something that is at least original."Kylesa's third full-length, Time Will Fuse Its Worth, is the eagerly-awaited follow-up to 2005's To Walk A Middle Course, which topped many year end lists and landed the band in metal and mainstream press alike. After grabbing ink in Spin, the New York Times, and metal mainstays Revolver alike, Time Will Fuse Its Worth again showcases the band as the ultimate definition of do-it-yourself dedication. With Cope lending his ears and hands for production duties at The Jam Room, and featuring comprehensive artistic layout and packaging from Pleasants, the KYLESA of current day continues to put the band's future in their own hands by touring Europe and North America alike.Time Will Fuse Its Worth sees the band continuing to evolve upon KYLESA's signature sound, seamlessly flowing from track to track encompassing listeners with sounds far and wide and an utter disregard for musical boundaries. Bringing together avant-garde experimentalism with the pure fury of dirty, sludgy riffs and raw, coexisting male and female vocals, KYLESA's ambient noise interludes, grimy rock riffs and impassioned, gruff vocals portray the doom-inspired punishment they are capable of dishing out through the power of the band's music.Now adding to KYLESA's signature sound and trademark triple vocal attack is the recent addition of a second drummer. "When we first started the band, we had planned on having two drummers but it didn't work out, so now it feels like everything is coming together," Pleasants says. "There is definitely a new level of intensity to Kylesa now. Since the new lineup has gotten together we have felt the strongest creative spark yet."The band's reluctance to attach itself to one sound or scene and to not play by conventional rules, along with that strong creative spark, has ultimately made KYLESA that much more versatile. With a constantly heavy touring schedule has found the band crossing boundaries, sharing bills with bands as diverse as High On Fire, Circle Takes the Square, Coliseum, Torche, Red Sparowes, Big Business, Baroness, The Sword, Disfear, and Darkest Hour both at home and abroad, as well as playing to enthusiastic crowds throughout Europe. "While we are no kings of one scene," says Cope, "we have, in a sense, just developed our own thing."

The Fastest Way to Fulltime – Event Photography

The Fastest Way to Fulltime – Event Photography
Event on 2015-10-06 10:00:00
If your dream is to become a full-time photographer, event photography is the quickest way to get there. Even with the plethora of photographers now, clients want good photography and good service for their events.

This class is part of the Professional Photographers of America's Super One Day series. You do not need to be a PPA member to attend. However, if you are, you will receive one merit for attendance. Register on the PPA site:

Let me tell first off, I snubbed my nose at Event Photography for my first few years in business. It just didn’t seem creative and the money was less than wedding or portrait photography. During the recession, I began my journey into Event Photography. What I found is that it can be creative, it’s easy to get the jobs, and it’s a shortest route into high society. Once the wealthy know you and trust you, they will hire you for all their photography needs; portraits, weddings and events. The money isn’t bad either – considering the processing for event photography is much quicker than any other type of photography.

• Learn how to find the right events and how to get the jobs

• Learn how to make sure each job will bring you more work.

• Find out who you should be calling on so that you don’t waste a lot of time marketing to the wrong people.

• How to price for each type of job.

• Contracts/agreements.

• Subcontracting through bigger event photography companies.

• Condition the clients ahead of time. Learn what to say and ask during your consultation to be sure you have everything covered. We’ll teach you how to guide the client for best photography practices and condition them for reality.

• Gear – what equipment do you need?

• Photo Guidelines – what to shoot, how to shoot it, how to come up with creative ideas.

• Camera settings – the best settings for dark banquet rooms, golf outings and more.

• Flash photography – you’ll need to really learn how to use your flash. We’ll go over several scenarios to be sure you are prepared.

• Behavior do’s and don’ts including what to wear (men and women).

• Quick turnaround. Learn to process your photos quickly using Lightroom. Peggy will go through her very fast editing process. One hour of event photography should equal 30 minutes or less in processing.

• Follow up for more work.

Think of Event Photography as paid advertising. When the right people see you over and over again, looking professional and friendly, they will remember you for any of their photography needs.

I hope you’ll join me for our full day class from 10 a.m. to 5:00 pm. on Friday, October 9. You’ll leave with a strong business plan to get your event photography business off the ground.

BRING: Note taking materials,
Your camera with a fully charged battery
speedlight if you have one with freshly charged batteries.

Please register on the Professional Photographers of America site. You do not need to be a member to attend this class:
