  2. Guys and Dolls Jr
    Event on 2014-02-28 19:00:00
    Waterford, Michigan City will see how a bushel and a peck of students from Mason Musical Theater Production Company can do when the students present their production of Guys and Dolls JR. beginning February 27th, it was announced today by Freddie Gershon, CEO of Music Theatre International (MTI). Guys and Dolls JR. is part of the MTI Broadway Junior Collection, MTIs special collection of musicals for younger performers which includes JR. titles, 60-minute musicals for performance by middle school children; and KIDS titles, 30-minute musicals for performance by elementary school children.

    Considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy, Guys and Dolls follows Salvation Army crusaders and high rollers from the streets of Times Square to Havana and back again. Nathan Detroit, who is permanently-engaged to psychosomatic showgirl Miss Adelaide, will be forced to fold Detroit s Oldest Established Permanent Floating Crap Game unless he wins a bet from slick high roller Sky Masterson. When Sky gambles that he can woo any doll Nathan counters that Sky will not be able to convince an up-right but up-tight missionary named Sarah to go to Havana with him. Sarah finds the rakish Sky very resistible at first, but eventually both Sky and Sarah teach each other a lesson on winning.

    From Sky Masterson, Miss Adelaide and Sarah, to their fellow gamblers, performers and crusaders, Guys and Dolls is filled with so many well-loved characters. We applaud these students for their hard work in creating the world of this musical and the characters that populate it. We think they deserve a standing ovation from the community for all of their work, says Gershon.

    Mason Musical Theater Production Company will present the MTI Broadway Junior production Guys and Dolls JR. on February 27th and February 28th at 7:00 pm at Stevens T Mason Middle School, located at 3800 Walton Blvd. Tickets cost .00 and may be purchased at the door the night of the show.

  3. HitKicker 99.7 Presents: Eli Young Band *SOLD OUT*
    Event on 2014-04-12 20:00:00

    Its a crazy-good story. The Eli Young Bandfour musicians who met during their college days in Texasis now 11 years into a career built on touring without a single lineup change. That dedication is paying o big-time as the band enjoys a crazy new level of success. They sell a crazy amount of tickets. Get a crazy amount of airplay. And are selling a crazy amount of downloadsEYB received their rst platinum record for "Crazy Girl" and have sold over 1.5 million downloads of the track.

    Penned by fellow artist Lee Brice and Nashville songwriter Liz Rose (You Belong With Me), Crazy Girl is a perfect introduction to Life At Best, a 14-track album that takes
    the bands wide-ranging multi-genre inuences and distills them into a focused, engaging vision: edgy country with hints of heartland rock bands such as Tom Petty
    and classic Eagles.

    Produced by Mike Wrucke with executive producer Frank Liddell (a team noted for its award-winning work with Miranda Lambert), Life At Best takes the listener on a journey, winding through songscapes that walk a delicate line. Theres a distinct variance from track to track as EYB veers from energetic quasi-rockers to steel-ladled country songs to conicted ballads. And yet the album maintains a singular identity, built around a sound thats been masterfully created over the course of three studio albums.

    We were able to just go in and record the entire record all in the same time period, and so youre in the same state of mind the entire time youre recording, lead singer Mike Eli notes. Theres something to be said about that when youre creating music, and I think this album demonstrates it. Theres a degree of cohesiveness with this record that I dont think weve had with our prior records.

    Theres also a degree of anticipationunderstandable given that Crazy Girl provides a new level of exposure to a national presence thats been created by simple touring.
    Their last album, Jet Black & Jealous, debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard Country Albums chart in 2008 even though the group had never made the Top 10 through radio
    play at that point in its career. One title from that project, Always The Love Songs, provided that Top 10 breakthrough while the group earned critical acclaim from People, USA Today, Billboard, The New Yorker, American Songwriter and Country Weekly and picked up television appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. EYB also nabbed a nomination from the Academy of Country Music for Top New Vocal Group of the Year.

    Still, nothing demonstrated the bands impact on the public consciousness better than its ability to turn a disappointing concert hurdle into personal triumph. A handful of dates on the multi-act Country Throwdown Tour were dropped in 2010 as the promoters made a cost-cutting move during a dicult touring season. With only nine days notice, the Eli Young Band announced a concert on its own in Dallas and sold an impressive 20,000 tickets with little advance. We were rolling the dice on that show, drummer Chris Thompson admits. It was great to see the payo on that concert and know that those people have our back.

    If the bands fan base has its back, its merely an extension of the solidarity the Eli Young Band has demonstrated since the beginning. Thompson, guitarist James Young and bass player Jon Jones formed an instant friendship and started performing around Denton when they were students at North Texas State University in 1998. Eli came into the picture when he enrolled at the school the next year, rst playing duo shows with Young, then singing lead as the gang of four ocially made its live debut in October 2000.

    In the very beginning, we decided that this is gonna be the four of us or it wasnt gonna work, Jones reects. Way before Nashville was even on our radar, we had time to gure out how we wanted to do it and really kind of commit to each other. We decided that we would be stronger, the four of us going through it together instead of just one person, which I think is the best thing about being a band. You have a group of people to share everything withto share some of the work and keep each other grounded.

    There was plenty of work. And little pay. EYB built its reputation by honing its music in front of audiences. Theyd play a club, sometimes for fewer than 100 members, but when they returned to that venue, the crowds were invariably larger. Within three visits,
    they usually sold out the house and would soon need to move up to a larger hall.

    The group routinely plowed its earnings back into the business, buying better equipment, fueling its cramped van, and gambling on the good vibes the musicians
    shared as a bandand with their growing legion of fans. Its the same method that lifted many classic bands: New Jerseys Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band,
    Seattles Nirvana and Detroits Bob Seger. The Eli Young Band established itself rst in Denton, grew to prominence in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, expanded into a regional act across Texas and Oklahoma and eventually extended its tentacles from coast to coast.

    EYB shed the van in favor of a bus several years ago and has stepped into even larger venues, opening for the likes of Alan Jackson, Jason Aldean and the Dave Matthews
    Band. And the group has reached a level where it regularly sells out 5,000-seaters on its own in the Southwest and 3,000-seaters in other areas of the nation.

    Crazy Girl underscored the strength of the groups foundation when it sold 47,000 copies in its rst week out. It quickly became the fastest radio hit in EYBs career and sent an undisputable signal that the group is now a coast-to-coast phenomenon.

    Some of the biggest responders were way outside of Texas, Jones asserts. It seemed like everywhere were went people were really welcoming us into the doors
    and ready to give the single a chance. But as strong a reception as Crazy Girl has received; its merely an introduction to an album long on ingratiating melodies,
    magnetic hooks and subtly provocative storylines. Even If It Breaks Your Heart kicks it o with a breezy Petty feel, and the project runs through the punchy Every Other
    Memory, the optimistic crunch of Recover, the introspective ballad My Old Mans Son and the gritty Skeletons.

    What I like about our records is there are dierent kinds of songs here and there, and theres something for everybody, Young says. We dont set out to write just one kind of song.

    EYB members wrote or co-wrote nine of the 14 tracks, drawing on their collective experiences as musical partners and growing individuals. They referenced their
    struggles as a band, the pitfalls of relationships, the complexities of family heritage and the diculties of simply being human. Despite digging into hardship, they transmitted it with an unerring sense of optimism.

    And they did it in a way that only four guys who have held together as friends and business partners through several years of dicult touring can. They were all born within a 15-month span, and thats created a shared prism through which theyre able to see the world and their music.

    Life At Best has just a little bit more maturity than anything weve done before, Jones says. Were always writing about what were going through, and the type of song that appeals to us changes with our lives. Weve been growing up together and going through the same phases really since college, and you can see some of that in this record. You can see that were a little bit older than in Jet Black & Jealous.

    And a little more established. Their growing TV presence, their continuing road-warrior commitment and the imminent Gold of Crazy Girl all point Life At Best in one
    direction: a crazy little thing called success.
