Relive The Magic Of Lettuce’s Star-Studded JGB Tribute At LOCKN’ With This Pro-Shot Video

first_imgOn Saturday night, the funk gurus of Lettuce performed their second and final set at LOCKN’ Festival in Arrington, Virginia. Following up their Thursday night performance, which saw them and Thursday’s headliners, Umphrey’s McGee, offer up one of the most buzzed-about transitions of the weekend, for their late-night Saturday set, Lettuce played a late-night tribute to Jerry Garcia Band with a truly all-star cast. In addition to former Lettuce guitarist Eric Krasno, the funk act also welcomed out a number of special guests, including members of Dead & Company, Tedeschi Trucks Band, and more.You can watch the first few songs from this already-legendary set below. To open up the show, Lettuce kicked off the JGB celebration at the Relix Stage with the instrumental “Finders Keepers”, an instrumental tune written by Merl Saunders that was frequently recorded and performed by Saunders and Jerry Garcia, followed up by a take on Smokey Robinson‘s “I Second That Emotion”, led by keyboardist Nigel Hall. For their first guests of the night, Dead & Company bassist Oteil Burbridge (who was celebrating his birthday) and Tedeschi Trucks Band keyboardist (and Oteil’s brother) Kofi Burbridge and vocalists Alecia Chakour (who formerly sang with Lettuce) and Mark Rivers joined the set for a dub-heavy rendition of Peter Tosh‘s “Stop That Train”. Opening and closing with Oteil scatting, eventually, Eric Krasno took the lead vocals on the song, highlighting his vocal abilities, which he began showing off on his debut solo album, Blood From Stone.You can also listen to the full performance below, courtesy of Randy Bayers and Funk It, which saw Lettuce also welcome out Bob Weir and John Mayer, and some unexpected lead vocals from Adam Smirnoff, Benny Bloom, and Jesus Coomes.

Trail Mix – Deep Roots Mountain Revival

first_imgIf you are looking for a musical road trip this weekend, look no farther than the wilds of West Virginia.Just outside of Masontown, on the former site of the vaunted All Good Music Festival, the Deep Roots Mountain Revival will be kicking off its second festival today and running through an impressive collection of artists, big and small, through Saturday.On the bill for this year’s festival are Brandi Carlisle, Dr. Dog, Lettuce, Sam Bush, Moon Taxi, Larry Keel, Town Mountain, and many, many more.The line up is deep and eclectic, but the fun doesn’t stop with the music. Included in the daily schedule are diversions like yoga, hoop building and dancing, meditation, and stuff for the kids to do, too.A longtime friend of mine, Micah Davidson, became part of the Deep Roots team this year. Davidson, who founded Midwood Entertainment in Charlotte in 2015, has been involved with booking bands and promoting festivals throughout the Southeast for years.I chatted with Micah this week about this year’s festival, exciting bands on the bill, and unusual green room requests.BRO – How did you get involved with this festival?MD – I had actually ever been to the site where we hold the festival, on Marvin’s Mountaintop outside of Masontown. Last year was the first festival, and I had friends involved, so they invited me up to have a small working role in the inaugural event. After seeing the site and spending time with the producer, Claude Ryan, I just knew it was something I had to do. We have a great relationship and work really well together. I really have to thank him for the opportunity, as it’s the biggest event I’ve been part of so far.BRO – I noticed there are some great bands from West Virginia on the bill. Was it important to give the home state some love as you went about booking?MD – I always feel that it’s important to support local bands. It helps the community get more involved in the event and gives you a great regional fanbase. Plus, you never know when one of those bands is going to become the next Sturgill Simpson or Dave Matthews. Those big bands had to start somewhere, and I think that, sometimes, the general public forgets that. And it’s fun to be able to say you had “that band” on your festival way back when.BRO – Band that you are particularly excited to have on the bill?MD – White Denim. I’ve told everyone on the team where they can find me when their set starts. I’ve been a big fan for years and they never disappoint. I’ve got them playing a couple of my festivals this year.BRO – Best part of your job this week?MD – As corny as it might sound, just getting to work with my friends. In this industry, I spend a lot of time traveling and meeting people who become like family to me. Getting to see them, hang with them, and share an experience like this is about as great a thing as you can get. If you aren’t enjoying the company of the people you work with, you should get a new job!BRO – You don’t have to name the band, but what’s the most unusual request you have ever gotten for the green room?MD – Well, it wasn’t for this festival, but the strangest green room request I have ever gotten was for ammunition. Yes. Ammunition. I read a band rider once and they requested ammunition. I laughed at first, and then I found out that they were serious. Needless to say, I didn’t provide it, but they did get a fantastic selection of beer, healthy snacks, and the like.If you find yourself free this weekend and have a festival itch that needs scratching, head to Marvin’s Mountaintop. Deep Roots Mountain Revival kicks off tomorrow in wild, wonderful West Virginia, and runs through Saturday.For more information on the festival, line up, and schedule, please check out the website.last_img read more

Members will love you when you offer these brilliant savings options

first_img 7SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Who doesn’t love to make an easy buck? There’s nothing better than feeling a little flush from time to time, especially when it requires little effort on your part. Tech savvy individuals, Millennials in particular, have making easy money down to a science. From selling goods online, using apps for automatic cash back, or surveys for free gift cards, there’s almost an art to making a little extra cash. But, wouldn’t it be great if there were more regulated ways to rack up some side cash? With creative enhancements to your credit union software, there are!Companies such as Acorns.com or Bank of America’s “Keep the Change” program have become popular, offering savings techniques that are almost effortless, rounding up your purchase and investing your spare change. However, many of these Millennials may not realize that similar technology is available right where they are already banking – at their local credit union. By maximizing core technology, financial institutions are able to offer these credit union savings solutions and benefits to members.Of Americans surveyed recently, fewer than 1 out of 5 people reported that saving money is their top financial priority. Most were merely trying to stay current with their bills, with only a handful actually working to pay down their debt. Delving further, those that were attempting to save a few dollars were of a younger subset, and potentially not as leveraged with household expenses as others. Items such as mortgages, auto loans, and family expenses often take priority, and having a savings plan can be a challenge. Creative solutions are needed (and appreciated) when it comes to saving money for a member’s rainy day fund. continue reading »last_img read more

CyberloxShop 10 pack Weft Clips 32mm – just okey

first_imgWeft clips, what more can be said 🙂 good value, durable and got them very fast. They have a protective strip which is nice. Strong and durable clips, very pleased with this purchase. I was also able to sew in to my extensions with no problems. A useful product to create own weave styles and plenty enough one pack for a full head job. Here are the specifications for the CyberloxShop 10 pack Weft Clips 32mm:Pack of 10 Black Weft ClipsSize: 32mmFor hair extensions and hair weftsMaterials: Metal / Silicone The clips came quickly, with no problems and they work like a charm. No snagging when removing, they do not move or hurt whilst clipped to the hair and they are comfortable. Very happy with my purchase and would recommend to others. I usually don’t write reviews and i am usually quite sceptical that it the owners or their friends who write them but i honestly thought this products deserved the five stars i have rewarded it and i am a genuine buyer. Arrived on time despite the snow and road conditionsperfect for what i needed. Got a really strong grip on them so they stay in even with my fine silky hair :)they made my weekend night out a one to remember because i could finally have long hair. Reviews from purchasers :Weave clips Just, wonderful. Posted on October 29, 2019Author Nathalie DuboisCategories Hair ExtensionsTags CyberloxShop Bought these for wefts for row of clip in extensions. I am yet to use the clips but its appears will give a good grasp but i think its too small. I might be buying bigger clips. I saw an online tutorial that said these were brilliant for keeping heavy or bulky cosplay wigs attached so i went for it as they were nice and cheap, they arrived within a couple of days packed nicely and securely, the clips are brilliant and arrived in perfect condition, they’re easy to sew into wigs or hairpieces and do a fabulous job of keeping heavy cosplay wigs on without using millions of hairgrips. Use these for my extensions and they came super fast in the mail, and they are good quality, and at a very decent price. I’ve been very clippy putting these on my hair extensions, great thank amazon i don’t know wat i would do without you. I bought these to use on bonding hair extentions i had bought myself. Cheap and easy to attach to the bonding hair aswell as your own hair. Hair stays in well for the whole day with no need to re-adjust the clips keeping your long hair appearence a good one. Doing your extentions this way dramatically reduces the cost and allows your hair to stay in a good condition. Have not used it yet but i will do one day when i need it, very good for the price as there is lots in there. Although weaker then the previous once but it has not broken yet and there are so many of them. They fit perfectly, they clip securely, such great value for what you are actually getting. Trust me i’ve looked around, in-store, online – this is the best value for money and delivery is super speedy too. I’ve already order four sets. I’m getting into this whole diy thing and i am loving it. They just help so much when making your own extensions. To be honest, i didn’t trust buying these kind of clips online because they could either break, or be cheap quality considering the price (which i love about this product) but these are just as good as they’re. Snap open and close easily, grips very well, has this smooth plastic which doesn’t hurt or pull your hair so they feel very comfortable. I recommend anyone to buy these :). Have been looking for good quality extension clips for ages and finially found them. For such a good price as well. Must admit though that 2 of the clips did not work and wouldn’t clip or sit firmly but the others were great thank youx. They’re almost the same type of quality as my clips that came with my extensions from a salon. These clips are great and very affordable compared to ones brought from other retailers. My daughters extentions hold in great with these. I’ve chosen this rating because i’m happy with the product i would recommend this product, especially on wigs or uparts. Love these little clips, great to reuse as well.

Fertilizer Applicator Certification Training will continue

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We are still getting a lot of questions about Fertilizer Certification from farmers.As a reminder, your legislators recently passed two laws regarding the application of fertilizer and manure. Remember, our legislators are in place to represent the voting public of the state of Ohio. Ohio State University is not a regulatory agency; our goal is to deliver unbiased, fact-based information. We were invited by the Ohio Department to conduct the training for your fertilizer certification. We have been delivering research-based information on managing nutrients for 100 years.Before 2014 we had laws in place only for large animal feeding operations to set manure application limits, and for fertilizer we only counted the tons used in the state. Since 2014 we now have a law based on Senate Bill 150 outlining the requirement to be certified to apply fertilizer — fertilizer meaning nutrients with an analysis. In 2015 legislators passed SB 1 (apparently it was their first priority of the year) to limit fertilizer and manure applications in northwest Ohio. This bill also brought state-wide requirements for certification if you apply manure from a concentrated animal feeding operation.A third change legislators brought in House Bill 64 — the budget bill of 2016-17 — was to move the Soil & Water Conservation Districts to the Ohio Department of Agriculture. The former SWCDs are now within ODA as the Division of Soil & Water Conservation. This places an office of the Department of Agriculture in every county in the state.Senate Bill 150 gives Ohio farmers until September 30, 2017 to become certified to apply fertilizer. We are now in April of 2016, and at the end of the winter meeting season, meaning you have next winter to become certified. This site gives more details on the legal issues: http://aglaw.osu.edu/blog-categories/environmental.Ohio State University Extension is delivering the educational programs. We have delivered more than 150 programs around the state for over 10,000 attendees so far. From estimates within OSU Extension, we think perhaps about 20,000 may need fertilizer certification. From a conversation with Ohio Department of Agriculture Director Daniels last week, there are probably many more who need the certification.Record keeping requirements start when you receive your yellow Fertilizer Applicator Certificate. If you are a farmer you maintain the records for three years. If you are a dealer and apply the fertilizer, you maintain the records for three years and supply a copy of the record to the grower who purchased the nutrients.Within 24 hours of any nutrient application, record: Name of fertilizer certificate holder Name of applicator working under direct supervision of certificate holder (if any) Date of application Location (field ID, farm) Fertilizer analysis (such as 11-52-0) Rate of fertilizer application (in pounds per acre) and total amount applied Fertilizer application method (surface-applied, incorporated, etc.) Soil conditions For surface applications only: is ground frozen or snow covered? Temperature and precipitation during application Weather forecast for day following applicationOne very good place to get and print weather records and a forecast is http://weather.gov. I had a call last week from a grower who forgot to record the weather information for his nutrient application in February when we had that dry spell. One site I have found to look at for past weather forecasts is on Weather Underground. Go to www.wunderground.com, click on “More” near the top of the page and then choose “Historical” to see past weather information. But I am not sure this is a “good” record; remember the intention is that you will gather this information before the application.One other item almost buried in SB 150 was the development of nutrient management plans. To me this may be the best way to manage our nutrient loss concerns — consulting with a nutrient management planner at the Soil & Water office, with a consultant, with Extension, with NRCS or a retailer can find those most likely areas of loss and help to reduce them.last_img read more
