Memorial Day

Memorial Day or Decoration Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the country's armed forces.[1] The holiday, which is currently observed every year on the last Monday of May, was held on May 29, 2017. The holiday was held on May 30 from 1868 to 1970.[2] It marks the start of the unofficial summer vacation season,[3] while Labor Day marks its end.

Many people visit cemeteries and memorials, particularly to honor those who have died in military service. Many volunteers place an American flag on each grave in national cemeteries.

Memorial Day is not to be confused with Veterans Day; Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving, while Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans.[4] - Wikipedia

Buy Dad a beer day (Father's Day)

'A bill to accord national recognition of the holiday was introduced in Congress in 1913.[17] In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson went to Spokane to speak in a Father's Day celebration[18] and wanted to make it official, but Congress resisted, fearing that it would become commercialized.[19] US President Calvin Coolidge recommended in 1924 that the day be observed by the nation, but stopped short of issuing a national proclamation.[18] Two earlier attempts to formally recognize the holiday had been defeated by Congress.[18][20] In 1957, Maine Senator Margaret Chase Smith wrote a proposal accusing Congress of ignoring fathers for 40 years while honoring mothers, thus "[singling] out just one of our two parents".[20] In 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honoring fathers, designating the third Sunday in June as Father's Day.[19] Six years later, the day was made a permanent national holiday when President Richard Nixon signed it into law in 1972.[18][19][20]"

St Arnold's Day (Patron Saint of Brewers)

"To the Europeans in quest of their family history, Metz uncovers a birthplace: Saint Arnold, Mayor of the Palace a bishop who then became a hermit, the paternal ancestor and spiritual father of French Christendom.

One cannot forget that Charlemagne was a 6th generation descendent of Saint Arnold. Whenever one refers back to distant periods, the facts and myths get mixed together to create the legend."

Caleb has been singing most of his life and is an alumni of the Kentucky Governor's School for the Arts (GSA). He loves all music but is trained as a classical Opera singer; however, rock music is his passion. Caleb's inspirations are Guns & Roses, Ed Sheehan, Jimmy Page & Stevie Ray Vaughn, so he is definitely a throwback to the days of classic & 80's Rock!

Lauren Anderson

This soulful, rockin' female, originally from Chicago, has had a passion for singing throughout her entire life. Growing up in a household that was rich in music, her influences were widely varied from artists such as Susan Tedeschi, Bonnie Raitt, The Pointer Sisters, Eva Cassidy, Etta James, Joss Stone, Jason Mraz, Black Eyed Peas, Christina Aguilera, and many more.  

Despite these modern musical influences, Lauren was classically trained throughout most of her early life. She began classical piano lessons at the age of 8, was an active member of several choirs and began taking classical voice lessons when she began high school. She eventually took her love of singing to the Quad Cities and obtained a bachelors degree in music with an emphasis on voice at Augustana College. Initially she planned on becoming an opera singer, but quickly realized that rock and soul music were more her style.

Having listened to those around her, telling her that music and the arts were difficult fields to have a career in, Lauren followed the safe path in life, making sure she had a "back-up" plan while working on her music and performing. This lead her to The University of Kansas to complete her masters degree in music therapy. She worked for several years as a music therapist on a pediatric unit and at a school for at-risk youth in Kansas City. However, even with a steady job she found that passions don’t die easily, and despite her love of working as a music therapist, she was ready to take on the challenge of making music performance her career.

After officially completing her masters in 2012, Lauren began performing solo gigs around the greater Kansas City area and eventually put together a full band. She released her first official EP, “Do & Hope”, in August 2014.  Fittingly, this EP was named after the unofficial motto of Lauren’s mother’s side of the family, who often remarked, “Just do it and hope it turns out okay.”

Lauren released her first, full-length CD titled, "Truly Me" in August 2015. And two singles, recorded in the legendary Ocean Way Nashville Studios, in 2016. Shortly after these releases she finally made the leap into becoming a full-time musician and moved to Nashville in February 2017. 

Since moving to Nashville, Lauren has continued to tour and is currently working on a new release, due out in the summer of 2018.

Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo (pronounced [ˈsiŋko ðe ˈmaʝo]Spanish for "Fifth of May") is an annual celebration held on May 5. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza.[1][2]

In the United States, Cinco de Mayo has taken on a significance beyond that in Mexico.[3][4][5][6] In the U.S. the date has become associated with the celebration of Mexican-American culture. In Mexico, the commemoration of the battle continues to be mostly ceremonial, such as through military parades.

In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is sometimes mistaken for Mexico's Independence Day—the most important national holiday in Mexico—which is celebrated on September 16, commemorating the Cry of Dolores that initiated the war of Mexican independence from Spain.[1][7]   - Wikipedia

Dan Conn

Dan Conn & The Travelin' Kind is a band founded on friendship and a passion for good music. And what started as just an occasional Sunday afternoon jam session has solidified into a authentic americana rock band. Inspired by musicians ranging from Bruce Springsteen, The Band, and Neil Young, Conn says he has always been inspired by "songwriters who write about real life" - which is evident on the bands self titled release. The album which was released in October is full of roots rock songs that reflect simple honest about life, love, and the pursuit there of.

The band is made up of drummer Heath Stone, bassist Adam Humphrey, and guitarist Andy Mullins, as well as Conn himself. Together, they have the momentum of a Steve Earle and The Dukes record with lyrical background of a John Hiatt. Conn writes songs about his life, but they always seem to reach further. For example, "Josie Sings The Blues" might have started with inspiration from his black lab but has become a song about how music connects people through a "high and lonesome sound." Lyrics like "Sing a song about reception or that old time religion... or a song about a train or that ol Kentucky rain... O Josie, won't you sing me the blues" engage the country songs that have come before, but not in a way that feels like a throwback. Conn has a relationship with these old songs and they represent warmth and comfort as they do with so many fans. This is what makes Dan Conn & The Travelin' Kind stand out: they work within the genre and honor what came before, all the while creating new songs for audiences to sing along with.

King Gambrinus is credited as the first person to add hops to beer...

"Gambrinus (/gæmˈbraɪnəs/ gam-bry-nəs), is a legendary European culture hero celebrated as an icon of beerbrewing, joviality, and joie de vivre. Traditional songs, poems, and stories describe him as a king, duke, or count of Flanders and Brabant.[1][2]Typical representations in the visual arts depict him as a rotund, bearded duke or king, holding a tankard or mug, and sometimes with a keg nearby."

National Beer Day

Not that we need an excuse to celebrate our favorite beverage...

"National Beer Day is a celebration of the Cullen–Harrison Act being signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on March 22, 1933. Upon signing the legislation, Roosevelt made his famous remark, "I think this would be a good time for a beer." The law went into effect on April 7 of that year, allowing people to buy, sell and drink beer containing up to 3.2% alcohol by weight (or 4.05% by volume) in states that had enacted their own law allowing such sales. People across the country responded by gathering outside breweries, some beginning the night before. On that first day, 1.5 million barrels of beer were consumed, inspiring the future holiday. Today, April 7 is recognized as National Beer Day and April 6 is known as New Beer's Eve."
