Everyone Orchestra Brings All-Star Cast To Worcester

first_imgLoad remaining images On Thursday night in Worcester, MA a talented group of musicians came together from various acts and provided an improvisational jam set for fans at Electric Haze. Everyone Orchestra, conducted by Matt Butler, featured Al Schnier of moe. on guitar, Aron Magner of The Disco Biscuits on keys, Alan Evans of Soulive on drums, Natalie Cressman of the Trey Anastasio Band on trombone, Karina Rykman of Marco Benevento on bass, and Mike Gantzer of Aqueous on guitar.For those unfamiliar with the premise behind Everyone Orchestra, the concept is quite simple. Conductor Matt Butler leads a group of musicians for an entire show, with each tune being entirely impromptu and pulled together on the fly. No rehearsal. No foresight as to what is to come, and entirely no rhyme or reason. Throughout the show, Butler would write on a wipe board with hints for the band, such as “whole notes” or “back to A,” as examples. Audience participation was well received as the crowd joined in with lyrics at various times during the evening.Butler, in his unmistakeable colorful top hat, coupled with matching tails, danced around the energy in the room, conducting the highs and lows of each individual jam, and willfully drawing out the magic of each musician one by one. Thursday night’s performance featured a showdown between Schnier and Gantzer on guitars early on in the set, as they threw the jams back and forth, egging each other on to take it to a more unique level with each toss. Butler would jump on vocals at varying points during the evening.It should also be noted that Thursday night featured the debut performance with Everyone Orchestra for Rykman. She was visibly having an incredible time on stage, as the smile never left her glowing face. Towards the end of the evening, Cressman and Magner created a beautiful, otherworldly tone as the notes from their instruments gracefully danced around each other, helping to bring the evening to a close but not before Butler introduced each musician that joined the band during an upbeat, rocking jam led by Schnier. After the last notes dropped, the audience chanted heavily, “one more song!” and not wanting the evening to end.If you haven’t seen Everyone Orchestra, do yourself a favor and check out this impromptu gathering of musicians from around the scene. You never know what magical creations will entice your ears during the evening.

Creative Habitat at Ben Franklin: New Name, New Vignettes

first_imgCreative Habitat at Ben Franklin, formerly known as Ben Franklin, has a new name and a new face. What remains, is the tradition of quality and customer satisfaction, the store’s independence, and the successful co-ownership of Mark and Michael Dowling.“Our neighborhood has had a significant facelift in the last year,” Michael Dowling explained, “Mark and I decided it was the appropriate time for us to further develop the potential of our store, using our experience in the industry and the latest industry trends.”“The new colors we chose, indigo blue and lime green, are those that are best representative of the vibrant and lively direction of the home décor industry,” added Mark Dowling. “Kehoe & Kehoe Design of Burlington worked with us to develop our new look.”Originally called Ben Franklin, the Dowlings have co-owned the store since 1991. Six years ago, the Ben Franklin parent company went into bankruptcy, leaving the store with no product supplier. They immediately joined with other Ben Franklin stores to continue buying the product their customers wanted.In the last six years, the store has evolved to reflect the desires of its customers, the knowledge of its staff, and the commitment of the same two owners, Mark and Michael Dowling. “We are a local store, owned, operated and staffed by local people,” Mark Dowling said.Creative Habitat is the name that both Mark and Michael decided upon, as it best describes the store. “We have always been the area’s leader in custom framing and crafts,” continued Mark. “Now, we have added product vignettes that reflect the trends popular with today’s consumers.”New product vignette examples at Creative Habitat are the latest trends in framing, crafts for the home, knitting, beading, quilting, and scrapbooking. “Scrap booking is extremely popular right now. We frequently have in-store demonstrations of scrap booking for our customers,” Mark explained. “Customers can also view home décor ideas and in-store design display ideas to help them decorate their home for holidays, special occasions, or for their own enjoyment.”Creative Habitat at Ben Franklin, formerly Ben Franklin, has been owned and operated by Mark and Michael Dowling since 1991. Creative Habitat is an independent store in the Burlington community, continuing in the family tradition of quality home design, crafts, and framing. Creative Habitat at Ben Franklin is located on Shelburne Road in South Burlington, telephone 802-862-0646.

Submersible Seized in Colombia

first_img A submersible capable of carrying 8 tons of cocaine was seized by Colombian National Navy units, with the support of the Technical Investigative Corps, in an estuary of the Guandipa River, in a jungle area in the department of Nariño. Units of the Drug Trafficking Task Force located the submersible, approximately 20 meters long and 4 meters wide, amid the vegetation along a channel of the Guandipa River. The vessel is made from fiberglass and is capable of sailing autonomously at the waterline, for which reason it does not submerge entirely. Its propulsion system consists of two diesel motors, and it incorporates new stealth forms in order to reduce radar detection. The construction costs of this vessel are estimated at around 1 million dollars. The submersible, which apparently belonged to the “Los Rastrojos” [The Stubble] criminal gang, will be transported to ARC Málaga Naval Base. This is the second submersible seized by units assigned to the Drug Trafficking Task Force in 2012, after an unmanned submersible was found in the waters of the Cajambre River, approximately 65 kilometers from Buenaventura, on May 28. The Colombian Pacific continues to be the most widely used region by drug traffickers for the creation of improvised workshops where these illegal vessels are manufactured, due to its marshy areas with constant rain, low tides that enable the production and storage of drugs, and high tides that facilitate the departure of the vessels. Since 1993, when the first seizure of a submersible used by drug traffickers was recorded, 77 illegal vessels have been neutralized, 60 of them in the Colombian Pacific, two of which were fully submersible vessels that could sail entirely under water.

Trio of Dutch asset managers launch joint private equity platform

first_imgPrivate equity funds usually charge management fees based on assets including cash yet to be invested, and lock that cash in for several years. However, the new investment platform said that, if not all committed assets were used during the year due to a lack of available deals, assets would be returned.The pension fund clients of the three asset managers have invested 3-5% of their entire portfolio on average in private equity, most of which is allocated to pooled funds.Achmea IM has allocated 10% of its private equity holdings to co-investments and, according to Van Gisbergen, the company aimed to double this allocation in the coming years. Van Gisbergen said that the fund for 2019 comprised more than €100m, which would be largely invested in small and medium-sized companies with a market value of between €200m and €300m.Achmea, Blue Sky and SPF are to jointly take a minority stake, which would be scaled up to majority holdings through co-investment by a private equity fund.The three players expected that their combined clout would make them qualify sooner for co-investment deals.Van Gisbergen said: “In the past, we had little access to deals, as the large players, such as the €215bn PGGM, would be involved earlier.”Blue Sky Group runs €22bn for three schemes sponsored by Dutch airline KLM, while SPF Beheer manages €20bn for clients including the railways scheme SPF and the public transport pension fund SPOV.Achmea IM is the €130bn asset manager for institutional investors, insurer Achmea and general pension fund Centraal Beheer APF, part of the Achmea group. The Dutch asset managers Achmea IM, Blue Sky Group and SPF Beheer have established a joint platform for co-investments in private equity.The companies, which jointly manage €172bn, said the collaboration aimed to significantly reduce costs.“Although an external specialist would be needed for the adequate implementation of the programme, costs could be more than halved,” said Jos van Gisbergen, senior portfolio manager for private equity at Achmea IM.Pension fund clients would be able to decide each year how much they each wanted to invest.last_img read more
