Texas Motor Speedway’s “Speeding to Read” Program Expands to 11 Elementary Schools for 2013-14

first_imgFULL SERIES COVERAGE FORT WORTH, Texas (September 9, 2013) – Texas Motor Speedway’s “Speeding To Read” program is expanding to 11 schools for the current school year and allowing the NASCAR-themed, incentive-laden reading platform to reach more than 6,600 elementary school students across eight local communities in only its third year of existence.“Speeding To Read” will continue with its emphasis on the nearby Northwest Independent School District with nine schools involved, but also will extend to the Denton and Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISDs with the addition of district pilot schools in each.The Northwest ISD will be represented in six different communities as Clara Love (Justin), Kay Granger (Keller), Samuel Beck (Trophy Club), Sendera Ranch (Haslet), Roanoke, J.C. Thompson (Haslet), Prairie View (Rhome), Haslet and Carl E. Schluter (Haslet) elementary schools comprise the group.“Texas Motor Speedway is definitely taking ‘Speeding To Read’ to the next level,” Clara Love Elementary School Principal Julie Nerby said. “Clara Love has partnered with Texas Motor Speedway since the inception of this reading program (in 2011) and we are excited to see the program expand this year so that an additional 5,000-plus kids can compete and ignite their love for reading. This year we anticipate a close race to the finish line, but the other schools need to know that Clara Love Elementary will be waving to them in our rear-view mirror at the checkered flag!”“When students engage in reading, the impact on learning is substantial. They increase their vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension,” Samuel Beck Elementary School Principal Sandy Conklin added. “Beck Elementary is thrilled to be joining the ‘Speeding to Read’ program, which motivates students to set goals in reading and provides incentives for students at each turn. Texas Motor Speedway has shown their commitment to the community by creating a strong partnership with Beck Elementary and other NISD schools.” View all articlesView all videos Third-Year, NASCAR-Themed Educational Program Will Reach More Than 6,600 Elementary School Students In Eight Local Communities center_img View all photos The NISD contingent will be joined by E.P. Rayzor Elementary School of Lantana (Denton ISD) and Chisholm Ridge Elementary School of Fort Worth (Eagle Mountain-Saginaw ISD). “E.P. Rayzor Elementary in the Denton ISD is excited to partner with Texas Motor Speedway in the ‘Speeding to Read’ program,” E.P. Rayzor Elementary School Principal Mary Dunlevy said. “It is our goal to engage our students in reading every day, both at home and at school, and this program helps to support that goal. Students are excited about their reading and meeting their goal at every turn. We look forward to winning this competition.”The official “Speeding To Read” kickoff was held Monday morning with full assemblies simultaneously at all 11 campuses that were decorated with Texas Motor Speedway and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series banners, street signs featuring the names of NASCAR’s biggest stars hanging in the hallways, and custom-designed race tracks and scoring tower artwork to chart the reading competition throughout the year.The students were treated with a virtual visit by NASCAR driver Elliott Sadler, who spoke live to all 11 schools about the importance of reading as well as his racing career. The virtual visit was interactive so each school was able to have students ask questions of Sadler, a NASCAR Nationwide Series star and former 12-year Sprint Cup Series veteran, and he was able to see the students and assemblies at every campus. The kickoff’s program of events also included a “Good Luck” message from NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Brian Vickers and a video of a “racing” competition between all 11 principals that was staged previously at Texas Motor Speedway.“The response to the ‘Speeding To Read’ program has been tremendous and the expansion will allow us to motivate more than four times the elementary school students we were able to reach a year ago,” Texas Motor Speedway Vice President of Media Relations Mike Zizzo said. “Reading is essential to their growth and ultimately their future at this young age, so we’re delighted to assist our communities in helping further that development.””Speeding To Read” is a reading program that was created by Texas Motor Speedway to encourage elementary school students to read more frequently during the school year. “Speeding To Read” began in the 2011-12 school year with Clara Love Elementary School and its 600-plus students serving as the pilot school for the program.After a successful debut in which Clara Love’s student body read more than 83,000 books, “Speeding To Read” expanded to three schools in 2012-13 with Clara Love being joined by fellow NISD elementary schools Justin and Hatfield. The three schools combined to read 283,208 books and 95 percent of the collective student body reached or surpassed their reading goals.This year’s competition will have three divisions, each of which being based off enrollment size and student body demographics, to determine the “Speeding To Read” champions for Kindergarten through 2nd grade and Grades 3-5. The Frontstretch Division will consist of Samuel Beck, Kay Granger and E.P. Rayzor. The Backstretch Division will be comprised of Clara Love, Prairie View, Chisholm Ridge and J.C. Thompson. The Pit Stop Division will consist of Roanoke, Sendera Ranch, Haslet and Carl E. Schluter.The competition will be divided into four quarters – or four turns like a speedway – with the top individuals, classrooms and schools being recognized at each turn. Turn 1 coincides with the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup heating up in early October; Turn 2 with the AAA Texas 500 NASCAR race week at Texas Motor Speedway from Oct. 31-Nov. 3; Turn 3 with the start of the new NASCAR season in February; and Turn 4 – the crowning of the champions – with the Texas 500 NASCAR doubleheader spring race week at Texas Motor Speedway. The 11-school race to the “Speeding To Read” championship will be known as the Lone Star 500.The students and faculty will be treated to field trips at Texas Motor Speedway for their Turn 2 and Turn 4 award ceremonies, both of which coincide with the speedway’s NASCAR race weeks and feature a NASCAR driver as a guest speaker and trophy presenter. Drivers who have participated previously in the program have been five-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson, four-time Cup champion Jeff Gordon, NASCAR star Danica Patrick and reigning NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion James Buescher. The “Speeding To Read” program offers a bevy of incentives for the students, ranging from NASCAR and Texas Motor Speedway merchandise to frontstretch tickets to the NASCAR races at Texas Motor Speedway. The program also has incentives for the leading teachers and principals, including dinner for two or signature spa treatments at The Speedway Club at Texas Motor Speedway.The “Speeding To Read” program is supported by a group of generous partners through donations and/or product that consists of Speedway Children’s Charities-Texas Chapter, Toyota of Fort Worth, Kid’s Beach Club, NASCAR, Press Pass, Inc., Domino’s, The Speedway Club, Score A Goal in the Classroom, Sprint, AAI Trophies and Awards of Plano, Speedway Motorsports, Inc.

Dopapod & Pigeons Playing Ping Pong Rock The Boulder Theater

first_imgTwo of the fastest rising acts in the East Coast jam scene, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong and Dopapod, ventured West for a co-headlining performance at the Boulder Theater last Saturday night, January 28th.The two bands toured together throughout the fall, and reunited for a two night run in Colorado. Since Dopapod got to close out the show Friday night at Denver’s Ogden Theatre, they were first on stage Saturday at the Boulder.Born in the halls of Boston’s famed Berklee College of Music, the band is a true powerhouse of prog-rock chops. Led by the searing guitar work of Rob Compa and the stylized synths of Eli Winderman, Dopapod brought the heat from start to finish in a metal-inspired set that left you little time to catch your breath. The complex compositions were followed almost note for note by lighting director Luke Stratton, who is quickly proving himself to be one of the best on the market.Next up was Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, who packed in a fourteen song set of high-energy dance music. While the band’s whimsical attitude and frontman Greg Ormont’s comical facial expressions have always made Pigeons a fun party band, the addition of drummer Alex Petropulos has taken their musicianship and precision to new heights. The set focused largely on material from their 2014 release Psychology, with sandwiched teases of the Allman Brothers’ “Jessica” and the Star Wars Cantina music.Check out the setlists from both sets, below.Setlist: Dopapod | Boulder Theater | Boulder, CO | 1/28/17Set: STADA, Plaese Haalp, Bluetooth, Upside of Down> Weird Charlie> Present Ghosts, Freight Train> Ya’ll Ready For This> Freight Train> Groundhog Day, Vol. 3 #86> Black and WhiteSetlist: Pigeons Playing Ping Pong | Boulder Theater | Boulder, CO | 1/28/17Set: Burning Up My Time, Sunny Day, Poseidon> Jessica> Poseidon> Horizons> Poseidon, Something For Ya, Stay, Whirled, Julia, Time To Ride> Cantina Band> Time To Ride, Ocean FlowsEncore: Bad For You, Fun In Funk[Image via Phierce Photo // December 14th, 2016]last_img read more

Yonder Treats Knoxville To 30-Minute Opener & Three-Song Acoustic Closer [Photos/Videos]

first_imgYonder Mountain String Band takes every show seriously, but when they play a room as ornate and historic as Knoxville’s Bijou Theatre they always seem to want to make it a night to remember. As we recently noted, the building the Theatre is located in is celebrating it’s 200th anniversary, while the venue is in it’s 107th year of continuous operation. With that kind of prestige and gravitas as a setting, Yonder clearly felt it was a good time to go above and beyond the call of duty.Boulder, Colorado’s own traditional bluegrass and Americana band The Railsplitters opened up the night with a fierce set of original and cover tunes that drew an impressive amount of early arrivers to the front of the Theatre to get down and dirty with them. Guitarist and lead vocalist Lauren Stovall showed off her hard earned skills and wide open range while the rest of the band took every opportunity to impress with their solid performance skills and affable charms.The band showed their respects to Yonder, with Stovall crediting a summer following them as her personal inspiration to take to the stage. Their choice to throw a rousing take on the John Hartford masterpiece “Steam Powered Aeroplane” made it clear they were true students of the form. Between the reception given The Railsplitters after each song and the cheers when they announced they would be returning to Knoxville for their own show at another venue across town later in the year, it looks like their future is bright in the heart of Tennessee.The rafters rang with the cheers of the Kinfolk as Yonder Mountain String Band took the venerable stage with smiles and the intent set to give the crowd their full measure and then some. Kicking it off with “Gilpin Swing”, they went on a three song tear that saw the tempos and styles vary but the intensity and deft precision stay steady as a rock. Flowing perfectly from “Gilpin” into a tasty “Pass This Way” “EMD” “Pass This Way” sandwich, the opening jams were both filling and full of chances for each member of the quintet. Thanks to our own Rex Thomson you can enjoy the glorious jams for yourself below:As the crowd was still digesting the slab of bluegrass jams they had just ingested, fiery fiddler Allie Kral, banjo ninja Dave Johnston, and mandolin master Jacob Jolliff left languid guitarist Adam Aijala and bass-thumper Ben Kaufmann to knock out a pair of tunes as a duo. Ditching his bottom end duties, Kaufmann welcomed the chance to switch up from his bass to a guitar for a pair of tunes dedicated to his son who was celebrating his fifth birthday by watching his dad on a live stream of the show.  Check out their rendition of the youngsters fave tune “She Smiles Like She’s Always Been A Friend” below:The rest of the band retook the stage and got back to the business at hand: delivering the best show they possibly could. Jolliff showed off his prodigious speed and dexterity on “Rambler’s Anthem” before taking the lead vocal on the Aijala penned “Far From You.” The tune was not only a crowd-pleaser, but it gave Allie Kral a chance to show off her comedic timing afterwards. You can check out the tune and the laughs below:After her stand up debut, Kral had the opportunity to showcase another side of her performance skills with an impassioned take on the classic “Son Of A Preacher Man.” Her emotive and husky delivery was perfectly suited to the Dusty Springfield classic. While on the subject of classics, Yonder followed the Kral sultriness with a few of their own, including a second sandwich of the the night, going from “Only A Northern Song” into “Traffic Jam” on into “Fingerprint” before finishing “Traffic Jam” to a deafening reception.The entire night saw incredibly sharp musicianship from the assembled players. Whether it was Kaufmann dropping low full and dirty, Aijala reeling off beautifully flowing leads, Johnston cutting through the sonic soundscapes the three founders clearly relished each moment. Jolliff’s low key demeanor completely belied the fury he unleashed on his mandolin’s fret board while Kral once again defended her crown as the queen of the jam grass fiddlers.Since the theme of the night was variety, Yonder decided to keep the unpredictable vibe going by axing the cables and hearkening back to the roots of bluegrass with an all acoustic three song encore. Leading off with the Kinfolk fave “Criminal,” the band invited the audience to pack it in down front so they could bring the volume down while simultaneously raising the roof. “Loved you Enough” kept the energy high before Kral closed out the night with a second, heart wrenching cover, a desperate and powerful rendition of the Dolly Parton tune “Jolene.”Though Yonder has decades of service to the music world behind them, shows like this clearly illustrate that the best is yet to come!

Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann, & Mickey Hart React To John Mayer’s Touching Note In Billboard

first_imgYesterday, we reported about a note John Mayer had written to the Grateful Dead, congratulating them on the 50th anniversary of their debut album The Grateful Dead. The note spread across an entire page in Billboard Magazine, reading: “To the band that changed my life, and for the music that keeps on coloring it in.” The note received a lot of attention from Deadheads worldwide who’ve enjoyed seeing this late-blooming Dead & Company guitarist accept his life-changing career path. “Forever Grateful,” he signs.Fellow bandmates and original Grateful Dead members Bob Weir and Bill Kreutzmann shared their reactions to the note of gratitude. “Thanks for this John Mayer. It’s a pleasure coloring in these pages with you,” Weir wrote. “There’s a lot to be said here… Thank you, John Mayer,” said Kreutzmann. Longtime percussionist Mickey Hart also responded to the note, writing “John Mayer – You’re one of us now.” It goes without saying that these recognitions are pretty solid.See below for the page from Billboard Magazine:In March of 1967, the Grateful Dead released their debut album The Grateful Dead. The record included few originals, “The Golden Road (To Unlimited Devotion)” and Jerry Garcia‘s “Cream Puff War,” along with some of their signature covers of “Beat It On Down The Line,” “Cold Rain and Snow,” “Sitting On Top of the World,” “Morning Dew,” “Viola Lee Blues,” and more.It’s no wonder John Mayer felt the need to attribute these career-shaping sounds, as he continues to carry the torch 50 years later while performing alongside original members guitarist Bob Weir and drummer Bill Kreutzman, and long-time percussionist Mickey Hart. The revitalized music is only accentuated through the bass wonders of Oteil Burbridge and the psychedelic keys of Jeff Chimenti. We can’t wait for Dead & Company tour this summer! Check out the full schedule here.Mayer will also be on solo tour this summer, promising an acoustic set, a set with the John Mayer Trio (featuring bassist Pino Palladino and drummer Steve Jordan), and a set with his full live band as well.

Creatures of Habit (Instrumental) Imagine if the people who made James Brown dance, Kool and the Gang “Celebrate”, and P-Funk’s Mothership fly, all joined forces with some of todays greatest talents for a big, funky, nasty collaboration…Woven with the threads of funk, soul, gospel, blues and rock–and executed by some of the industry’s most beloved players–The Big Ol’ Nasty Getdown is back and gearing up to release their second album, Volume 2. The new release, due out January 12th, 2018, will serve as the long-awaited follow-up to the musical collective’s globally-acclaimed debut 2012 LP, The Big Ol’ Nasty Getdown: Volume 1.Improvisation is at the root of The Big Ol’ Nasty Getdown, which was conceived by bassist John Heintz at a music festival in 2007. Heintz found himself in a jam session with members of Galactic, Papa Grows Funk, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band and more, and sought to re-create that serendipitous, unrehearsed vibe that’s unexpectedly created and can carry music into uncharted territory. As Heintz espouses, “We want to capture the feeling of a late night backstage jam – sounds that only musicians have heard before.”Heintz began presenting the idea to the musicians he’d been meeting on the road. “Everybody seemed interested, but touring schedules being what they are, it was an uphill battle,” he explains. “I asked Derrick Johnson and John Paul Miller from Yo’ Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band if they’d help me organize a collaborative project, and they came on board. We started calling every musician we knew including Frank Mapstone, a knowledgeable producer and musician from Florida. Frank and I clicked instantly and it was apparent that he was the most versed in the studio environment. Frank ultimately became my production partner with the Getdown. We have worked side by side for the last decade on this project.”The first Big Ol’ Nasty Getdown took place in a 14-bedroom house on Royal Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans in December 2007. Heintz assembled a free-floating ensemble that included 35 musicians from 17 bands, including The Lee Boys, Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Galactic, and Dumpstapunk, as well Ralph Roddenbery and The Funky Meters, Garry “Starchild” Shider and Belita Woods from P-Funk. The eight day session was unplanned and unrehearsed. Bar-b-cue smoked in the backyard, songs were written in the living room and tracks were recorded all over the house, as the inspiration flowed. The result of the experiment was eventually crystallized as Volume 1.Heintz and his robust, talented crew of musicians used a similar approach for the making of Volume 2. The first session for Volume 2 was cut at a massive cabin in the woods outside of Asheville, NC. “We used the same blueprint,” Heintz explains. “We assembled, created a sense of camaraderie in the house and let it fly. We all stayed together for a week straight, living in the house together and basically having a week-long house party during which a lot of the music was written. We then went to a studio down the road and started recording what we were putting down in the house.”The funky supergroup’s new album celebrates a one-of-a-kind, large-scale collaborative idea more than a decade in the making. Says Heintz of the new album, “The Big Ol’ Nasty Getdown: Volume 2 was an amazing journey to embark on. During the process of recording this album, we had the opportunity to work with generations of the most talented players to have graced our airwaves and stages from the 60’s to the present day. I think the excitement and love from all the folks involved in this album shines through in the songs.”More than 50 musicians participated in the making of Volume 2, including Vernon Reid (Living Colour), Larry Dunn (Earth, Wind and Fire), Speech (Arrested Development), Fred Wesley (James Brown, Horny Horns), Karl Denson (The Rolling Stones, Tiny Universe,) Michael Ray and Clifford Adams (Kool and the Gang,) RonKat Spearman (Katdelic, Parliament-Funkadelic), Alvin Ford Jr. (Dumpstaphunk), Norwood Fisher, Angelo Moore, Dirty Walt (Fishbone), and Ivan Neville (Dumpstaphunk, The Funky Meters), just to name a few.Today, Live For Live Music is proud to premiere an exclusive single off the long-awaited The Big Ol’ Nasty Getdown: Volume 2, and appropriately down-and-dirty classic funk jaunt that goes by the name of “Groove Nasty”. As Heintz says of the track, “‘Groovy Nasty’ is full-throttle energy from the very first note. It’s just one of those songs that makes you want to get up and dance.” Listen to an exclusive stream of The Big Ol’ Nasty Getdown’s “Groovy Nasty” from their upcoming sophomore release, Volume 2, below:The Big Ol’ Nasty Getdown: Volume 2 will be available to download/stream on January 12th. For more information about The Big Ol’ Nasty Getdown, their fateful formation, and their unique approach to timeless collaboration, head to the band’s website.last_img read more
