Iconic Beatles Promoter Sid Bernstein Passes Away

Sid Bernstein, the promoter who brought the Beatles to Carnegie Hall in New York City just as their fame exploded in the U.S., has died. He was 95. Bernstein's daughter, Casey Deutsch, said her father died in his sleep Wednesday morning of natural causes. Bernstein made the Beatles the first rock group to play at the classical Carnegie Hall and arranged their historic 1965 show at Shea Stadium, rock's first major stadium concert, which set box office records. He also booked such top acts as Jimi Hendrix, Judy Garland and the Rolling Stones. He worked with Judy Garland, Duke Ellington and Ray Charles and promoted Dion, Bobby Darin and Chubby Checker. Bernstein was an early backer of ABBA, setting up the Swedish group's first U.S. appearances. He also was behind one of the first rock benefit shows, the 1970 Winter Festival for Peace, and helped revive Tony Bennett's career with a 1962 show at Carnegie Hall. Bernstein had a studious side that led to his biggest break. He took a course on Western civilization that required students to read a British newspaper once a week. It was 1963, and the Beatles were just catching on in their native country. "So here I am reading little stories about this group from Liverpool that is causing a lot of 'hysteria.' By the end of the course, I was so Beatle-ized by what I read, even though I did not hear a note, I said, 'gotta get 'em.'" he explained in a 2001 interview with the music publication NY Rock Confidential. As Bernstein recalled, he couldn't get his agency interested in the group, so he handled the job himself. The Beatles were still unknown in the U.S. and the price was cheap — $6,500 for two shows. The timing was perfect. By February 1964, Beatlemania had crossed over to the U.S., and the band was set to play on The Ed Sullivan Show just three days before the Carnegie concerts. In 1965, he landed the group at Shea Stadium. Some 55,000 fans lost their voices and their minds. The New York Times described the scene as meeting the "classic Greek meaning of the word pandemonium — the region of all demons." Like so many in the music business, Bernstein was the hustling son of Jewish immigrants. He sneaked into the Apollo Theater as a boy and, while studying journalism at Columbia University, ran a ballroom that featured such Latino stars as Morales, Tito Puente and Marcelino Guera. Over the past 20 years, Bernstein's best client became himself. He wrote two memoirs, It's Sid Bernstein Calling and Not Just the Beatles, and even recorded an album of duets. At age 90, he started a Twitter account. "Twitterland!" he called out in one post. "Let's all have a productive week. I have a few very interesting projects in the works and I'll reveal them very soon." Bernstein and his wife, Geraldine, were married for more than 40 years. They had six children.

Is The Drum Corp International Not For Profit A Racist Orginazation? My Open Letter In Response To Alleged Copyright Infringement Claim


I love how you cowards operate. Why do you allow all these other videos to remain online, while discriminating against me, I asked for permission from one of your video representatives, which said it was ok to upload.

THESE VIDEOS WERE FOR FAIR USE ONLY as I explained numerous times. THEY ARE NO WAY COMMERCIAL( No ads, no dvd sales). How do you usurp the copyright over all that music your teams cover???? How do you have video copyright over video you DID NOT SHOOT especially in a public place? If I mute the audio do you still have copyright over the visual part of footage?

Letting non-blacks,you claim as dci family, upload same said material is RACIST. It's a shame that you rely on the percussion of your minority members, but bar their relatives and fans in sharing the joy aswell ??? You have millions of views. How will my hundreds of views hurt you???

(Audio Fixed) CAROLINA CROWN DCI 2013 Allentown Pa. J Birney Crum Stadiu...

(Audio Fixed) CAROLINA CROWN DCI 2013 Allentown Pa. J Birney Crum Stadium Seven DCI Worldclass Bands Await Tour Of Stars Competition Results 2013 @J Birney Crum Stadium (Allentown Pa)
Drum Corps International (DCI), formed in 1972, is the non-profit governing body for junior drum and bugle corps in the U.S.A. and Canada. Junior corps are composed of members 21 years of age and younger. DCI is composed of member corps who have earned their membership through competition. It is responsible for developing and enforcing the rules of competition and is the sanctioning body for junior corps competitions. DCI is headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana. Its Board of Directors is composed primarily of directors of the member corps. The stated purpose of a DCI corps is " provide a life changing experience for youth through the art of marching music performance." The DCI competitive summer tour, consisting of DCI-sanctioned competitions (known as the Summer Music Games) throughout the United States and Canada, culminates in August with the week-long DCI World Championships.[1] Other drum corps associations around the world are largely based upon DCI. Currently, DCI assigns North American corps to two classes, and corps from Europe and Asia are assigned to the International Class. Corps from all classes often compete together, but are judged and ranked separately. In the past, classes have been fully or partially determined by the number of marching members in each corps; at present, all corps may march up to a maximum of one hundred fifty (150) members. World Class (formerly Division I) corps are the corps that have chosen to compete at the highest level and that have shown the DCI leadership that they have the ability to survive at this level both competitively and financially. The higher a corps is ranked at the DCI Championships, the higher the performance fees they will earn for the following season's performances. Open Class (formerly Divisions II & III) corps are generally smaller or committed to a lesser competitive level. In September 2007, DCI combined the former Divisions II and III into this new division.[2][3] International Class is for corps based outside North America that wish to participate in DCI competitions. Corps in this class are allowed to follow certain of their own country’s organizational guidelines which are not allowed for North American corps, such as a higher maximum age limit.[2] Prior to the advent of DCI, many locals corps were a year-round youth activity. Still, the competitive season generally ran from Memorial Day to Labor Day, which essentially coincided with the school systems' summer break.[4] Today, drum corps is often still a year-long activity, but not in the same manner. Where once memberships were almost entirely local, many corps now have a membership drawn from all over North America and the world. Therefore, off-season activities occur during "camp" weekends. At the early camps, potential members audition for membership in the corps. Later, the members gather monthly or bimonthly to work in preparation for the summer. As the season nears, many corps go into intense, full-time camps, with the members "moving in" and spending days on end in preparation for going "on tour." At the present time, the competitive season begins in mid-June and ends with the DCI World Championships during the second week of August. For members of all World Class corps and the most competitive Open Class corps, the activity is a full-time summer commitment. Members travel from show site to show site, performing in competitions and parades across North America nearly non-stop until the DCI Championships. Corps travel by coach buses in convoy with semi-trailer trucks holding equipment and field kitchens. Once on the road, members generally sleep on the buses as the corps travels at night, and in sleeping bags on school gym floors when their next destination is reached. The corps practice their shows for as long as the schedule allows during the day, and then they go to the stadium for the local competition. After each show is over, the cycle repeats, with only a few breaks in the cycle for laundry days and an occasional free day for relaxation. Some corps have neither the finances nor the member commitment to spend the entire summer "on tour." Some of these corps restrict themselves to local competitions only. Others may delay the start of their touring, marching only a short season on the way to the DCI Championships. See also: Drum Corps International World Class Champions and List of Drum Corps International World Championship Finalists The DCI Championships, first contested in 1972, are the culmination of the drum corps season.[1] Originally held during the third weekend in August, this has moved to the week of the second weekend in August, as the school year has lengthened and the Championship activities have increased. Over the years, the DCI Championships were held in college or professional sports stadiums in eighteen U.S and Canadian cities, spread from Montreal in the north to Miami in the south, and from Philadelphia in the east to Pasadena in the west.[4] Since 2009, however, the Championships have been based in Indiana, with the Open Class Championships being held at Ames Field in Michigan City and the World Class Championships at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. DCI plans to remain at the current venues until at least 2018, with the exception of the 2014 season.[5] Beginning in 1975, the DCI Championship Finals were televised on PBS.[6] From 2006 to 2007, they were carried on ESPN2.[7] Although the Finals have not been broadcast live in several years, since 2004, the quarterfinals have been screened live at a large number of movie theaters across the country.[8] During championships week, in addition to the Open Class and World Class Championships, Individual & Ensemble (I&E) competitions are also held, typically at an indoor facility near the championship stadium. Members of all corps are able to compete, and participating members often use much of their limited free time to prepare their I&E routines. There are a great number of categories or captions for each individual brass and percussion instruments, for auxiliary (aka "color guard") equipment, and for brass, percussion, auxiliary, and mixed ensembles. In the 2005 season, I&E included woodwind instruments for the first time, in recognition that many marching members play instruments other than brass and percussion.

Sara Ayers Band And StoneCat Invade 2013 Musikfest Moloch Ritual

Here's my Musikfest schedule... August 2nd through the 4th... Stay on the north side, enjoy the superior food and avoid the teenyboppers that will be the primary audiences for the headline acts. I would much rather watch Lucky 7 and The Aardvarks at Festplatz Friday and Saturday night than Carly Rae and One Republic. August 5 through the 8th... go to the south side and listen to washed up (but hopefully still somewhat entertaining) bands from the '70s and '80s from the free confines of 1st Street. Fill up Musikfest mug from beers in cooler in trunk of car. August 9th and 10th - head to Cape May for the Craft Beer and Crab festival. Man cannot live on Musikfest alone. Besides... Darius Rucker and Kesha? I'll pass. August 11th - A7X - 3rd row, stage center, watch the fireworks, wait two hours for traffic to be let out of the area. I'm looking forward to it... warts and all. I'll probably go at least 6 nights, maybe 7.

100 Cities For Trayvon Martin vs 15 Homeless Children Protest Blackballed From Media Coverage?

Local Fire Victims Vs Hurricane Sandy Victims. Should there be a difference between disaster aid as opposed to localised loss? Watch this video, and please pass it on. thank you... Neighborhood fire victims react to alleged neglect from government agencies handling of their homeless children and adults who held an on street protest. They feel that their cities mayor and his policies have failed them. One resident female added her insight as to where the city went wrong. She also lays out an inequity in relief distribution from the Red Cross, and accuses WFMZ(local tv station) of not reporting the truth. An Allentown fire damaged nine row homes, displaced eight families and sent five firefighters to the hospital, officials said. Displaced residents said the three-alarm fire began at about noon in the kitchen of 854 N. Eighth St. as someone cooked sausages and it quickly spread to adjacent row homes. Fire officials have not confirmed the cause. Residents of homes at the fire's epicenter said they escaped without injury because of quick-thinking neighbors who warned them by pounding on their doors and windows. The American Red Cross of the Greater Lehigh Valley set up a relief center at nearby Washington Elementary School where volunteers met with fire victims to determine their needs. The agency is assisting at least four displaced families which combined include nine adults and 15 children, agency spokeswoman Janice Osborne said. The fire displaced families who live in even-numbered homes from 848 to 862 N. Eighth St., she said.

Witness claims Zimmerman molested her for at least a decade? Why Wasn't This Brought Up In Trial???

The Florida State Attorney’s Office on Monday released audio of shocking testimony from a woman who said that George Zimmerman molested when her she was about 6 years old until she was 16. A motion filed by Zimmerman’s attorney, Mark O’Mara, attempted to seal the testimony of “witness 9″ on the grounds that it was incendiary and irrelevant to the shooting of Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old who Zimmerman is accused of murdering. But that motion did not make it to the court in time and the testimony was released at 11 a.m. on Monday. According to The Miami Herald, the woman had contacted prosecutors early in the investigation to say she knew that Zimmerman’s family did not like blacks. She also testified that that the former neighborhood watch captain had sexually molested her at his parents house when he was 8 and she was 6. “We would watch movies in front of the TV and we would all lay in front of the TV,” witness 9 explained. “And he would reach under the blanket and try to do things and I would try to push him off, but he was bigger and stronger and older. It was in front of everybody!” “He would put his hands under my pants, under my underwear and basically just finger me,” the woman said, adding that at one point Zimmerman forced her “rub” his penis after he had an operation due to problems urinating. Witness 9 said the “groping” continued for years, until she was 16 years old and Zimmerman allegedly put his erection on her and she ran from the house. “This is the first time in my life that I not afraid of him,” she told investigators. During a second part of the interview the woman said that she had contacted authorities after Martin was shot because “I was afraid he may have done something because the kid was black.” “Because growing up, him and his family have always made statements that they don’t like black people if they don’t act like white people,” she said. “They talk a lot of bad things about black people.” At one point, the woman recalled speaking to Zimmerman’s mother about President Barack Obama. “She said, ‘I don’t like Obama,’” the witness recalled. “And she said, ‘Because he’s black. I am a racist.’ Just loud and proud.” Earlier this year, Zimmerman’s 64-year-old father, Robert Zimmerman, insisted that his son was not a racist. “He would be the last to discriminate for any reason whatsoever,” Robert Zimmerman wrote in a letter to the Orlando Sentinel. “The media portrayal of George as a racist could not be further from the truth.” An FBI report released last week concluded that Zimmerman was not a racist. Listen to this audio of witness 9′s testimony via WKMG, uploaded July 16, 2012.

WHITE GUARDIAN ANGEL SAYS "George Zimmerman Deserves Whatever He Gets For Killing Trayvon Martin"

WHITE GUARDIAN ANGEL SAYS "George Zimmerman Deserves Whatever He Gets For Killing Trayvon Martin" The Guardian Angels is a non-profit international volunteer organization of unarmed citizen crime patrollers. The Guardian Angels organization was founded February 13, 1979 in New York City by Curtis Sliwa and has chapters in 15 countries and 144 cities around the world.[1] Sliwa originally created the organization to combat widespread violence and crime on the New York City Subways. The organization originally trained members to make citizen’s arrests for violent crimes. The organization patrols the streets and neighborhoods but also provides education programs and workshops for schools and businesses. In the beginning, New York City Mayor Ed Koch publicly opposed the group. Many government officials also opposed the group whenever they attempted to open a chapter in their cities, including Toronto Mayor David Miller and Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair.[citation needed] Over the years, the controversy has died down in many cities; and as citizen involvement and outreach has increased, there has been less public opposition to the group by administration officials. Ed Koch later reversed his stance on the organization,[2] and former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and current New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg have publicly supported the group.

He has played alongside or with Buddy Scott, Jimmy Dawkins, Jimmy Rogers and The Legendary Blues Band; as well as more latterly fronting his own group, Nick Moss and the Flip Tops.[1] The music journalist Bill Dahl, stated Moss possesses "mastery of the classic Chicago sound."

Moss originally learned to play the bass guitar, and joined Buddy Scott's backing band in his late teens. He played there for two years before moving on to join up with Jimmy Dawkins.[1] By 1993, he had joined The Legendary Blues Band, and played bass on their final album, Money Talks.[3] The band's frontman, Willie "Big Eyes" Smith, suggested Moss should switch to lead guitar and he spent over two years there before they split up.[1]
Moss moved on to play as Jimmy Rogers' band guitarist for another three years, before going solo. His debut album First Offence (re-released in 2003) was billed as by Nick Moss and the Flip Tops, and included a guest appearance from the harmonica playing Lynwood Slim.[1] His next two offerings, Got a New Plan (2001) and Count Your Blessings (2003) were both nominated for a W.

Blues/Gospel Singer Alexis P Suter Meltsdown To Tears @Brews, Blues & BBQ Concert 2013 (MUST SEE)

View this entire album: Brews Blues BBQ Event Alexis P Suten Band & Nick Moss Band Alexis P Suter Band "ONLY I CAN RESCUE ME"@ Brews, Blues, BBQ 2013 Allentown, Pa Alexis P Suter Band @Brews Blues BBQ Performing TELL ME BABY 2013 Alexis P Suter Band "BUILT FOR COMFORT" LIVE @Brews Blues BBQ Event Allentown Pa Alexis P Suter Band "Turn Em On" Live @Brews Blues BBQ Event Allentown

Blues Singer Alexis P Suter Has EPIC Meltsdown On Stage @Beer, Blues & BBQ Concert.

When the great Bluesman B.B. King first heard Alexis P. Suter sing a few years ago, he was visibly impressed -- and said so after her opening set. Shaking his head in wonder in his characteristic way, he remarked: "It's a rare thing to share the stage with great talent like that young lady." Considering the caliber of performers who appear on the same bill as King, that's a heady compliment. And she has earned similar accolades from other well-known musicians and performers, including Levon Helm of The Band and Dan Akroyd, better known in the Blues world as Elwood Blues, who called her "America's number one contender for the new Queen of the Blues." A true vocal phenomenon, bass/baritone powerhouse Suter and her band began wowing audiences in the northeast 6 or 7 years ago as regular performers at Levon Helm's Midnight Ramble Sessions in Woodstock, NY. "She is one of those wonderful spirits, she's got her arms around you, you can feel that," Helm has said. Since then, they have been in demand at North American festivals including, just in the past summer : The Toronto Waterfront Blues Festival, The Cincinnati Blues Festival, Floydfest in Floyd, VA, The Kitchener Blues Festival in Kitchener, Ontario, The Vermont Blues Festival, The Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival in Salmon Arm, British Columbia and The Columbia Blues Festival in Columbia, SC. During the summer of 2008, the band toured Italy as part of Blues Al Femminile. In 2009, the band was showcased at New York City's River and Blues concert series and at the New York State Blues Festival, where Dan Aykroyd joined them onstage for "Got My Mojo Workin'." Along with Levon Helm's band, the Alexis P. Suter Band has played sold-outs shows at the Beacon Theater in New York City, Bethel Woods Center For The Arts and Central Park Summerstage. The band has also appeared on Imus in the Morning. At Floydfest this summer, where they played on the same day as the Levon Helm Band, Suter was invited up to sing on The Weight, which usually closes Helm's show. Born in Brooklyn, NY, Suter came from a musical family. Her mother was a music teacher and singer who worked with Harry Belafonte, Mahalia Jackson, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and The Hall Johnson Choir. Early on, her daughter sang in recitals and Gospel plays and learned the power of her voice. In the early 90's, Suter became a staple of underground garage music and the first African American woman signed to Sony-Epic (Japan). Her acclaimed song "Slam Me Baby" made her an underground star, while she also still sang with New York's Illumination and Total Praise Gospel Choirs. Her debut CD, Shuga Fix on Hipbone Records was well- received by the music community and played on the radio nationwide. The band also released a CD/DVD recorded Live at The Midnight Ramble, and last year's record Just Another Fool. Suter is poised to release her latest -- Two Sides, One Truth -- in March. Suter said the record "has a lot of different styles -- blues, soul and other roots music. It's mostly original songs and a few covers." One of the covers is her version of Bob Dylan's "Knockin' on Heaven's Door," which Suter sang at last New Year's Eve's Midnite Ramble in Woodstock, where people are still talking about it. More recently, Suter and her band previewed some of the new songs at The Turning Point in Piermont, NY where the entire kitchen staff came out and lined the hallway to hear her sing. In addition to her voice, Suter's real secret weapon is her top-notch band. At every show, audiences show their whistling, cheering appreciation for drummer Ray Grappone's funky beats and guitarist Jimmy Bennett and keyboard man Benny Harrison's high-flying solos. The rest of the band --Peter Bennett on bass, and gorgeous singers Vicki Bell and Linda Pino --have also added to the firepower of this exciting band that has captured the attention of some of the best players around. Along with other hot New York blues players, Suter will be featured on the cover of the February/March issue of Big City Blues magazine. The sky's the limit for The Alexis P. Suter Band! or
