Awesome article. This is a brilliant idea and touching story. Best of luck Meghan!
Brass connection band is a fraud - I booked them for a party and not only did they not show up but no one even bothered to call to let me now. And now they are giving me the run around to give me my deposit back. DO NOT BOOK THIS BAND. They are dishonest
Thanks for including Charlotte Contemporary! We have an amazing lineup of artists coming to the Queen City, so please join us Oct. 14 thru 16!!
"Now we shared a secret." Amazing.
I feel that they are not loyal people. I know for a fact that the steal others intruments and either play them or sell them. They break into people's cars and damage their personal belongings. They have been doing this for a while and this is not fair to those who use their instruments for good purposes. They should not have the privilage to play down town at all. They sound horrible and they are getting people's money instead of making an honest living. I know that once of the members has been arrested twice. They should not be downtown at anytime playing anything. Its sad to know that people work everyday and for those to steal them and play like they are innocent. I agree with the individual who wrote the review above. We can do with out them. They have this ignorant attitude like they are band members of Earth Wind and Fire or apart of the Gap band or something. They need a permit to be on these streets or something. They are terrible. And the band mangaer has many Alias.. whoa... smh.. too shady to post his real name. We all know who he is. oh well.. you have the man to answer to on judgement day for your actions.****PLEASE WATCH YOUR CARS*****
I've been a fan since the beginning back in 1984, I can not wait.
Crowemag Toys will be there!
Eno is over, he stopped being interesting in the lates 70's there are far more interesting people working now like Paul Armlehn or Amon Tobin
The worst thing to happen to downtown Charlotte. I normally encourage and support street performers. But this group has a habit of being outside any venue I attend (Blumenthal, Knight Theater, Spirit Square, etc.) waiting for patrons to exit. They are so loud and in my face, they destroy any mood I might have coming out of a performance. It shows no respect for the attendees. If I come downtown to hear or see a great show, I don't want my reflection shattered by a bunch of loud, over the top, ego-driven musicians with no regard to their potential audience. If I ran a venue, I would have them removed from the front if performances were scheduled that evening. They could be anywhere downtown and be loud enough that everyone would know where they are if inclined to go listen to them.
OH MY GODDD!!! im lovin it!!!! xoxoxox
Like a boss!
I'd love to take my wife to see this, but the show has been cancelled according to the website provided in the article.
His talk was lovely-and I appreciate that he did a lot of prep for it. In fact, he checked in early on Friday night so he could get the work done!
Nice piece Kemp, very cool you got to check out Eno@Moogfest... BTW, did Eno have any Bob Moog anecdotes? And did you catch any of the live shows @ the fest?
THIS MUST HAVE BEEN LEFT OUT BY MISTAKE!
Shakespeare Carolina is proud to announce their 2011 Season. The Company will open the year with John Cliffords Ines De Castro April 27th through May 1st at the Duke Energy Theatre at Spirit Square, Charlotte. Based on true events, Ines De Castro is a stunning tale of love and vengeance in 14th Century Portugal. Managing Artistic Director, Chris ONeill has a long history with both Ines De Castro and Playwright John Clifford. ONeill played the role of the King in the American Premiere of Ines De Castro, performed on Hilton Head Island and Charleston, South Carolina in 1992 and directed its second American production as a part of Winthrop Universitys Student Director Series in 1997. It was while directing the 1997 production that ONeill met and developed a Fourteen Year friendship with Clifford. ONeill has also directed Cliffords Playing with Fire at the Off-Tryon Theatre Company.
This summer Shakespeare Carolina at Winthrop University will begin its inaugural full season, which will open with Shakespeares classic comedy Two Gentleman of Verona to be directed by long time Shakespeare Carolina collaborator James Cartee. The Production will run July 13th through July 17th at Winthrop Universitys Johnson Theatre. James Cartee attended Winthrop University and Leo Mezzone's Del Arte School of Theatre movement. He has since traveled the world performing and is currently settled in Charlotte, NC where he heads the group- Citizens of the Universe. Having worked in every aspect of theatre, he looks forward to directing for Shakespeare Carolina for the first time this year.
Rounding out the summer, ONeill will direct William Shakespeares The Tempest August 3rd through August 7th.
I think that the publishing of "I WISH TO LIVE " was great in fact dare I say Orgasmic for a lack of a better word !!!!
Thanks for the interview CL. Very well done. Mr. Crombie is a great Actor and I hope everyone in Charlotte comes out and enjoys The Drowsy Chaperone.
It had the entire audience laughing out loud in New York and Mr. Crombie kept everyone on stitches from the beginning to the end. A great cast of characters in a wickedly funny show.
