  3. This sounds like a great idea to help fill the gap within the Instruments for Africa project. Please look into contributing and help make it a success. We’re excited to announce that our most recent Instruments For Africa donation is currently on its way to Ghana! Right now the ship is somewhere between Morocco and Accra; 2,700lbs of books, accessories, and amazing musical instruments, all donated by people like you. We managed to seperate the equipment into twelve groups, so we’ll be able to supply twelve schools with instruments when we arrive in Ghana next month. The problem is, several months ago the Ministry of Education in Ghana gave us a list of thirteen schools in the country that need our help, and no matter how we tried we couldn’t stretch our instrument collection far enough to equip all thirteen schools. We left it up to them to eliminate one name from the list and the school they selected to not receive instruments from IFA on this trip was the Accra School For The Blind. We’d like very much to include the Accra School For The Blind and we could use your help. Recorders are very popular instruments with kids of all ages everywhere we go in Africa, and our friends at Musicare have agreed to supply us with as many good-quality, brand-name recorders as we want for just $5 each, tax-in. Our flight tickets allow for three more pieces of luggage than we require so we could potentially take hundreds of recorders to Ghana with us without any shipping costs whatsoever. This means you now have the unique opportunity to put an instrument directly into the hands of a handicapped child in Ghana for a mere $5! Aside from being relatively easy to play, very durable and always staying in tune, the best thing about recorders is that unlike a trumpet or a guitar that is shared by many students, every child gets their own recorder to keep. With your $5 donation I will personally be able to hand a recorder to one of these children, one they can take home and keep as their very own. Imagine the difference that could make! How often do you get a chance to make that kind of difference for such a tiny sum? If you donate $10 we can give instruments to two kids. For $100 we could give the gift of music to an entire classroom! But the point is, for the extremely reasonable price of just five dollars you can be directly responsible for giving a ray of musical hope to a child in Ghana. Please go to www.instrumentsforafrica.com and click the donate button right now. Simply write the word “recorder” in the instruction box and we’ll make sure a child at the Accra School For The Blind receives your gift. Finally, we’ve put together a video to promote our Recorder Drive. Please click here to watch it, and be sure to share the video with your friends! Thanks very much for your continued support, Todd Snelgrove www.instrumentsforafrica.com
  4. https://www.princehitnrun.com/store/ Still, here is some unrelated footage tied to an unreleased version of Nothing Compares to U. Much of it cut in from a really cool bootleg video of an early Prince and the Revolution rehearsal. Those clips were available online for a while a couple of years ago, but have since been scrubbed. They are absolutely mesmerizing if you can find them.
  5. RBC Bluesfest organizers today announced the addition of ‘fest favourites, Blue Rodeo. Since the festival’s inception, Blue Rodeo has repeatedly charmed, thrilled, and outright rocked RBC Bluesfest audiences. They’ll be appearing on July 12. It’s great to have Blue Rodeo back after a few years’ hiatus from the line-up,” says the festival’s executive and artistic director, Mark Monahan. “Their live show ranks right up there among the best we’ve staged—it’s a performance I personally look forward to whenever they’re here, and it always seems to get better!” This year should be no different as the band will be rolling out tunes from their latest album ‘1000 Arms’, which is receiving rave reviews. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=n7Cvntzojr4 Other acts added since the initial launch include: Common Deer (July 8); Eat A Peach: Allman Brothers Band Tribute (July 12); Hunter Siegel and Chuurch, presented by Deadbeats (July 13); and Lilly Hiatt (July 14). In other news—due to a scheduling conflict, Shaggy will not be able to perform at this year’s festival. Also of note, the first day of the event (July 5) will feature an opening ceremony showcasing Algonquin-Anishinabe Youth Hand Drummers from Kitigan Zibi and Barriere Lake As in previous years, the festival continues to add acts to their line-up after the initial launch. For those who haven’t already purchased tickets, this makes it even more compelling to get some. “In recent years, our multiple 3-day ticket packages have become the most popular purchase,” says Monahan. As always, prices are subject to change, so I suggest folks snap these up sooner than later.” Details can be found on the ‘tickets page’ on the festival’s website.
  6. I was just listening to an interview with David Crosby on Adam Carolla's podcast. He was talking about how he had answered a question after an interview ended about his thoughts on Darryl Hannah dating Neil Young. I didn't realize that they were a couple. Apparently the interviewer took his words, which described her as a gold digger, and posted them on the internet which ended up pissing off Neil. Crosby regretted saying anything and that he was an idiot for running his mouth off, and his perceptions were based on crap his agent had been saying to him.
  7. I discovered that there was a 5 min time limit set on editing one's own posts. I've removed that as I don't think that has ever been in place for members.
  8. Thanks Esau. I didn't notice that. Not sure how or when that happened.

    until
    with DJ Zattar
  10. Terry Kath's killer guitar solos, and Peter Cetera's super groovy bass ftw
  11. If that happens again, just create a ticket with SSC.
  12. Now that the forums have moved to a new cloud-based service and running on machines dedicated to these forums, you'll find that www.jambands.ca points directly to this community now rather than a blog hosted elsewhere. If you had a bookmark to the old path to the forums, (www.jambands.ca/f) you can now update it and remove the slash-f. All of the articles have been imported into this system, but they still need to be consolidated and tweaked (images did not import properly and have to all be re-applied manually). There will be a section for posting reviews, etc, much like the blog, but it will be integrated into this community's database of users and forum posts. For now, things are as they were, but expect to see tweaks and changes. Thanks for your patience and support. PS: If you notice any strange things, please raise the issue. Exporting/Importing systems can create bizarre side-effects. For example, this morning, there was no TextBox to type out a post. But that has been fixed.
  13. Happy to see Lake Street Dive back on board. Obviously they will be a main stage act this year after packing the tent in 2014. Who are all these other people playing anyway?
  14. the static image certainly presents 66% worth of killer beards.

    Here's an article on Relix about the main host, Scott Rogowsky's Phish and Dead integration within his hosting duties. Lots of phish/dead puns and references related to the questions. If you decide to hop in, use my code up top so I can get a free life! Also, feel free to share your own sign-up code,
  20. I am perplexed at the fact that I've never seen Bryan Adams live. While I'd never search out a show, this opportunity cannot be missed for me. Interesting fact, Kevin Breit's brother Gary is Adam's long-time keyboardist.
  21. I thought I'd share this since, I can't be the only one with some stored music instruments/items laying around which could be used by others, especially through this amazing project. I targeted Ottawa in the title considering local drop-off logistics. But if you're out of town, maybe there are other ways.
