Ryan, would you please post an email address so that we can communicate about the Cross Country Team benefit rock show/dance, which two MVRHS students would like to arrange? It seems like that would be a good way to start working on this idea.
I would like to get in touch with someone regarding a MVRHS student, who studies music with me, and wants play a benefit, for the Cross Country Team at The Base. It would be a dance/concert. I called also, and left a message.
Why did you block me and my messages of good intentions?
Tickets to all SPECTRUM films are FREE to teens!

Vineyard Haven, MA 02568 Phone: (508) 696-7171 www.ymcamv.org EVENING CONCERT: Victor & Penny Present, Musical Time Capsule: The Renaissance of Antique Pop (75 min) Jeff Freling and Erin McGrane of Victor & Penny offer a highly entertaining, living musical history lesson as they delve into a topic close to their hearts: the roots and evolution of Kansas City Jazz. From Euday Bowman’s 1913 composition,“12th Street Rag” to Charlie Parker’s classic 1946 “Yardbird Suite”, experience how the face of popular music changed in the first half of the 2oth century. In the course of a 75 minute live concert, Jeff and Erin bring to life the birth of the Kansas City Jazz sound and the elements that make this music so compelling. The duo takes you to Kansas City during the great depression, when boss Tom Pendergast blatantly rejected Prohibition and KC became known as the Paris of the Plains, a hot bed of creativity and new ideas. Hear how Jazz starting taking shape in this rich culture as its early innovators began to change the sound of the art form and Jazz was on its way to national notoriety. The presentation puts the listener inside the music to hear how Walter Page’s 4-beat bass lines began to drive the rhythm, how Charlie Parker turned harmony and melody on it’s side, and how Big Joe Turner made what many regard as one of the first Rock n Roll recordings… in 1938! It all comes together as these elements reveal the inspiration behind Victor & Penny’s “Antique Pop”, born of this unique, hard-swinging Kansas City style. Driven by McGrane and Freling’s effortless and engaging style, this presentation offers a fun and captivating look into the music of the city that was coined “the Paris of the Plains” in the 1930s. A must attend for fans of music and history alike. All are welcome... Some technical aspects are discussed but musical knowledge and/or theory are not required to enjoy this presentation.
