Summer Camp Concludes With Trey Anastasio Band, The Disco Biscuits, & moe. [Photos/Videos]

first_imgThe last day of Summer Camp Music Festival brought even more big names in the jam scene to patrons at Three Sisters Park. With an influx of people that came for Sunday only, fans were treated to great music all day long.After two nights of performances, Umphrey’s McGee had a daytime set that featured a raging “August.” Railroad Earth brought their flavor of Americana to the main stage. Surprisingly, they were without their jack-of-all-trades member Andy Goessling. They did have keyboardist Matt Slocum play with them, perhaps in his stead. It was unique hearing RRE with keyboard parts. The highlight of their set was undoubtedly the debut of their cover of “Melissa.” The nods to Gregg Allman thus continued.Setlist: Umphrey’s McGee| Summer Camp Music Festival | 5/28/17Glory, Conduit, Educated Guess, Day Nurse, August, The Linear, Walletsworth, Dump City, Life During Exodus, Attachments, Crucial TauntIn what was one of the most anticipated sets of the weekend, Phish frontman Trey Anastasio brought his eclectic stylings with his all-star band. Over the past four years, TAB and Summer Camp have an association of disastrous weather. A few years ago, his set was canceled mid-set due to thunderstorms. This year, TAB played two great sets in absolutely gorgeous weather, opening with a funky “Gotta Jibboo” that many Phish fans appreciated. Other staples included “Mozambique,” “Soul Rebel,” “Cayman Review,” and a sensational cover of “Clint Eastwood” by the Gorillaz, featuring Jen Hartswick on vocals. The band also debuted a cover of “Midnight Rider” in honor of Gregg Allman.Watch “Sand” below, courtesy of Greggory Marcus:Setlist: Trey Anastasio Band | Summer Camp Music Festival | 5/28/17Gotta Jibboo, Mozambique, Sand, Soul Rebel, Drifting, Burlap Sack and Pumps, Cayman Review, Curlew’s Call, Magilla, Money, Love and Change, Night Speaks to a Woman, Ocelot, Valentine, Plasma, Liquid Time, Midnight Rider, Dark and Down, Simple Twist Up Dave, Goodbye Head, Mr. Completely, First Tube, Clint Eastwood, Push On ‘Til the Day, The Parting GlassAnother very hyped set came from the Disco Biscuits. Not having played at Summer Camp since 2006, they were long overdue. Except for the “Story of the World” opener, their set was basically one long “Basis for a Day” sandwich. True to their style, they played their set straight through, segueing from one song to the next for the entirety of the seventy-five minutes. The peak of the jams was the epic “Tricycle” in the middle of the set.Setlist: The Disco Biscuits | Summer Camp Music Festival | 5/28/17Story of the World, M.E.M.P.H.I.S.-> Basis for a Day-> Tricycle-> Aceetobee (inverted)-> Basis for a Day-> I-Man-> Basis for a DayAs per Summer Camp tradition, moe. closed out the festival. Playing two sets at the Moonshine Stage, they absolutely crushed it. Donning their white outfits from the previous night, they played tunes from all ages of their decade-spanning career. They even brought out Yonder Mountain violin player Allie Kral to help them out for a good jam session.Watch moe.’s first set and part of their second set below, courtesy of Summer Camp Photo: Phierce Photo With Summer Camp now over, summer is right around the corner.

Mickey Hart Shares New Song Built From Audio Samples Of 1948 Tobacco Auction [Listen]

first_imgLast week, Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart officially announced his upcoming solo album, RAMU (short for “Random Access Musical Universe”), and released a pair of new tracks (“Wayward Son” and “Big Bad Wolf”) featuring Animal Collective’s Avey Tare and Tank and the Bangas’ Tarriona “Tank” Ball. Today, Mickey has shared the third single from the new album, the album’s first track, “Auctioneers”. The enthrallingly disorienting track begins in a sonic space you might find deep into a good old fashioned Dead “Drums” jam, and proceeds from there into a full break-beat freak-out.Listen to the newest release off Mickey Hart’s upcoming solo album, RAMU, below or  here via Billboard:As Billboard explains, “The song is built from Library of Congress recordings of a 1948 tobacco auction in Kentucky, over which Hart and his collaborators built an uptempo, polyrhythmic swirl of sound. ‘It’s the rhythm of the auctioneers, that’s the energy of [the track],’ says Hart, who works regularly with the Library of Congress as well as Smithsonian Folkways, “They’re selling tobacco, but at such a rapid speed that it’s just fantastic, rhythmically, and it has a melody to it and it fits into the dance. It’s kind of a precursor to rap, in some ways. So I just created something on top of that old sound recording.”Mickey Hart Announces Solo Album, Shares New Singles With Avey Tare & Tank BallHart expounded on what “RAMU” was to Pitchfork last week. As he explained, “’RAMU is truly a multidimensional instrument that allows you to travel to new universes at the flip of a switch…Everything goes through RAMU, the mothership. It’s my instrument, and it’s a very powerful compositional tool. It’s vast, it holds new treasures, and it’s still revealing itself to me.” He continues, “This record includes sounds from radio telescopes around the world, solar winds, the radiation that comes from light and is turned into sound, weather conditions from hurricanes.”“‘I want people to appreciate and understand what’s lying in the archives of the world, just sitting there waiting to be discovered,’ continues Hart, who began developing RAMU during the ’80s and has continued to refine and perform with it, over the years. ‘I live with that stuff all the time, just being in the archives all these years. I’ve got my finger on the button there, and I’ve always loved it. All these things have never really coexisted; I mean, I’ve found things that never coexisted before and kind of married them and the music. You can really have fun with it, and ‘Auctioneers’ is a perfect example of that.’”Dead & Company Added To Band Together Benefit Concert, Oteil Burbridge Cancels NYC Show“‘I didn’t want it to sound like a standard record by any stretch of the imagination,’ Hart explains in the Billboard interview. “I didn’t want to use cliche elements that you would normally put in a pop or rock ‘n’ roll (album). I didn’t use much bass at all, very little guitar, no keyboards, not a lot of cymbals, not a lot of tom-toms leading into verses, choruses or bridges. I pulled out a lot of those things that I identify with modern music. I was looking for the new.”In addition to Tank (Tank and the Bangas) and Avey Tare (Animal Collective),the album features bassist Oteil Burbridge, guitarist Steve Kimock, the String Cheese Incident’s Jason Hann, Planet Drum cohorts Zakir Hussain and Sikiru Adepoju, Michal Menert and others. Longtime Dead conspirator Robert Hunter provided lyrics, and the track “Jerry” even features samples of the late Jerry Garcia experimenting with MIDI guitar during the late ’80s.Dead & Company Announce Fall Tour WebcastsWhile the album release is fresh on his mind, Hart doesn’t have any plans to tour behind RAMU as of yet. He’s focusing on his “day job” in Dead & Company and appreciating how smoothly that ship is sailing. “There’s really hardly any words to describe it ’cause it’s so good now…We finally know how to do it, I think, after 50-some odd years. I think we finally figured it out…” Hart also says that Dead & Co is toying with the idea of hitting the studio to make a new album. “We’ve talked about it…We’ve got some new songs from [Robert] Hunter, and we’re considering it, just thinking about schedules and when we want to go in the studio and so forth and so on. It’s one of those things; We were never a great studio band…it’s really our live performances — and it’s not just the music but kind of a community experience when people come. It really is about them, not us. I think the music is secondary in some ways. We’re kind of just the soundtrack, just like it’s always been.”[h/t – Billboard][Cover photo – Phierce Photo by Keith G; Instagram: @phiercephoto]last_img read more

Umphrey’s McGee Welcomes Vinnie Amico & Robert Walter In Albany [Audio]

first_imgOn Friday night, Umphrey’s McGee made a stop at Albany, NY’s Palace Theatre amidst their winter tour, and invited up moe. drummer Vinnie Amico and keyboardist/organist Robert Walter during the first set. Robert Walter’s 20th Congress got the night started off, marking the group’s second show on the road offering support to Umph’s.Umphrey’s McGee opened up the first set with “Domino Theory”, before working their way into a cover of Ali Baba’s Tahini’s “Got Your Milk Right Here”. Next, the band invited up Robert Walter to lend a helping hand on keys on “Whistle Kids”, with Jake Cinninger tossing back and forth a series of gritty solos with Walter. Walter exited the stage, and the six-piece moved forward with a free-flowing segue of “Linear” into “White Man’s Moccasins”. Cinninger and Brendan Bayliss laid down some intricate guitar work together, backed by their tenacious rhythm section consisting of Kris Myers, Ryan Stasik, and Andy Farag. UM kept on chugging with another improv-heavy segue of “Resolution” into “Upward”. To close their first set, the sextet invited up Upstate New York resident and moe. drummer Vinnie Amico for a cover of ZZ Top’s “Cheap Sunglasses”, rocking the closing segment of the hard-hitting first set in grandiose fashion.Umphrey’s McGee came back to open their second set with “Miss Tinkle’s Overture”, before moving forward with “Walletsworth” and a cover of Fugazi’s “Waiting Room”. Last night’s rendition of “Waiting Room” marked only the fourth time that Umphrey’s has played the song since 2015. A groovy take on “1348” followed, as Cinninger and Bayliss locked in with Joel Cummins, powering their explosive six-piece unit into a tight-knit funk jam. Umphrey’s McGee powered forward with “Eat” and an deep take on “Maybe Someday”, before closing the second set with “The Floor” and a proper finish on “1348”. Umphrey’s McGee continued in the night’s improv-heavy theme, sandwiching “Soul Food I” in between “Puppet String” in their encore slot.Listen to full-show audio of last night’s explosive Umphrey’s McGee show below:Umphreys McGee – 2/1/2019 (Full-Show Audio)[Audio: Rob Clarke]Tonight, Umphrey’s McGee heads to Portland, ME’s State Theatre, with Robert Walter’s 20th Congress offering support once again.

Nussle on Bloomberg: Credit unions best suited to meet consumers’ financial needs

first_imgCUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle refuted point-by-point longstanding misunderstandings about credit unions in an appearance on “Bloomberg Surveillance” Friday.During his appearance , Nussle cleared up some common misconceptions about credit unions, and explained why the cooperative model is best suited to meet the financial needs of the underserved.“What we do may look like a bank, but how we do it and who we do it for are completely different than a bank model,” Nussle said. “How we do it is not-for-profit. All the banks are for-profit.”“It’s not about how big they are, it’s who they serve and how they do it,” he said. “But size and scale can really help you support under-served populations and go into areas with a branch (where) maybe you couldn’t go before.”Nussle pointed to several examples of how the cooperative model better serves consumers. continue reading » 13SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Financial education is more than a month

first_imgSummer is over and fall is upon us. Now is the perfect opportunity to look back at the successes of April’s financial literacy programs and make sure those successes continue throughout the rest of the year. Financial education matters more than four weeks a year.As the financial landscape is changing, making financial decisions is getting much more strenuous for consumers. Recent trends have put more financial burden on the shoulders of consumers, and there are ways you can learn how to deal with these changes.We could all use financial advice from time to time, and your credit union has the opportunity to be there for its members.When members have questions, it is imperative that credit unions be there to empower them by providing the relevant education. It is not enough to simply offer a program on budgeting, saving and investing and assume the knowledge will linger until the participant needs it. An ideal program would be made available at any time, whenever members need it.Remember that improving financial literacy will have a profound impact on credit union members and their ability to be prepared for whatever the future may hold for them. Providing these types of programs and services offers the added benefit of nurturing your existing relationship with a member and ensuring you have a place in their financial future. 238SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
