Not everyone digs Country music, so if you are looking for a great act to see on Thursday night at Riverbend, consider the All-Star Band on the Unum Stage at 9:30 p.m. Packed with ten of the finest musicians anywhere, the All-Star band will entertain crowds of all ages. Complete with a three piece horn section (Actually the one from the 10,000 Maniacs show last summer), a Latin percussionist, drummer, lead guitar, bass guitar, keyboards and two of the finest vocalists out front, you will hear everything from Oldies like Same & Dave, to newbies from Here Come The Mummies and Adele.

As an added bonus, the band will be presenting a check to Orange Grove Center, bring their total to over $4,000 donated so far.

For those Jazz enthusiasts that say Riverbend doesn’t show enough love to that genre, two great acts appear on the TVFCU Stage tonight to prove you wrong. The Ben Friberg Trio plays at 6:15 p.m. and Rahsaan Barber & Everyday Magic play from 7:45 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. Rahsaan Barbber is a nationally known Sax player, having done stints with the Temptations, The Four Tops, and the Megaphones, amongst others. So, if you like Jazz, be there or be square.

See you there!

Walking Among Memories, The USS LST-325

I have walked among the head stones at Flanders Fields and have seen the entrenchment of soldiers with only bayonet tips sticking out of the earth. Later I traveled to Normandy where I stood on the sand and made scuff marks with my shoes on Omaha Beach and climbed the hill to the magnificent American Cemetery there. I again walked among the many, many tomb stones so neatly and ... (click for more)

One of the greatest things about the American legal system is that each and every crime is judged on its own merits. Just because Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer and Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy were each arrested for domestic abuse earlier this week, each National Football League football hero will be given an independent hearing and trial, if need be, ...
