5K Across the USA - Evansville
Sat, 06 Sep 2014 19:00:00 +0000

We are searching the world for 1,000 people to each run a 5K between September 1 and October 31.  This is in honor of Perry Newburn's RUN ACROSS AMERICA.  For his 60th birthday, Perry will be attempting to break the 34 year old world record and run across America in 46 days!  He will be running 3,100 miles, which is the equivalent of running 1,000 5K's.  So we invite you to virtually run a 5K in honor of Perry.  


You choose your course,  You time your own race.  You submit your results to us.  We will send you a beautiful finisher's medal and window decal and a great big THANK YOU from Perry!   Proceeds from this event will go to help cover the costs of Perry's run, as well as a portion of each registration will go towards to the two charities the Perry is running for:  Sunshine Heroes and Koru Care New Zealand.

Will you be one of the 1,000?  Sign up now!

 

What: Complete 5K! Set a goal for what your finishing time will be and dedicate your run to PERRY

When: Complete your race any time between September 1 and October 31.

Where:  You choose the course and you time yourself (you’ll report your finishing time to us).

Why:  Because we want as many people as we can get to virtually run alongside Perry as he makes his way across the USA, running on average, more than 60 miles a day.  We want 1,000 people completing a 5K, in honor of the 3,100 miles Perry will be running across the USA.   Proceeds will help cover the cost of the run, as well as a portion of all registrations going to the two charities the Perry is running for: Sunshine Heroes and Koru Care New Zealand.

 

*Medals will be shipped out in October.

FREDDY COLE QUARTET
Fri, 31 Oct 2014 00:00:00 +0000



 

 

 

 

 

 

7:30 & 9:30p | $20 ($30 front row table seating)

featuring

FREDDY COLE – piano
ELIAS BAILEY – bass
CURTIS BOYD – drums
RANDY NAPOLIAN – guitar

“He’s one of the few male jazz singers these days who is still at the height of his powers and can be taken seriously.”
Ben Ratliff – The New York Times

“Freddy Cole just might be the most attractively understated jazz singer currently at work.”
Lloyd Sachs – Chicago Sun-Times

Freddy Cole, the legacy of his brother Nat “King” Cole, will stir up memories that will never be forgotten.  Now in his 40th year of performing, this great singer and pianist has developed a huge following of his own.  The instantly recognizable Cole voice and a veteran quartet, play the classics as well as new compositions and interpretations from a huge repertoire.

Lionel Frederick Cole was born on October 15, 1931, the youngest of Edward and Paulina Nancy Cole’s five children. His three elder brothers, Eddie, Ike and Nat (12 years Freddy’s senior) were all musicians. “I started playing piano at five or six,” Freddy remembers.  “Music was all around me.” In the Chicago home of his youth, visitors included Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Lionel Hampton.

Cole moved to New York in 1951, where he studied at the Juillard School of Music and found himself profoundly influenced by John Lewis, Oscar Peterson and Teddy Wilson.  He received a master’s degree from the New England Conservatory of Music and then spent several months on the road as a member of an Earl Bostic band that also included Johnny Coles and Benny Golson.

It was back in New York that Cole successfully laid the groundwork for a career that continues to flourish to this day. He developed a vast repertoire of songs in Manhattan bistros and concurrently began to supplement his live performances with television and radio commercial jingle work.

Cole doesn’t apologize for sounding like his brother, Nat “King” Cole. There are certain unmistakable similarities. He plays piano and sings, and performs live with guitar and upright bass, just like Nat. Yet his voice is raspier, smokier, jazzier even. But he has emerged from the awesome shadow cast by his elder brother. In truth, his phrasing is far closer to that of Frank Sinatra or Billie Holiday than that of his brother and his timing swings a little more.  His vocals – suave, elegant, formidable and articulate – are among the most respected in jazz.

Fri, 31 Oct 2014 09:00:00 +0000

So, you have a food business idea and you want to get your product on grocery store shelves.  At Husk, we've been down this road just far enough to discover it's a lonely road.  We aren't experts.  We are constantly learning, and one thing we've learned is that it's best to learn together

We want to invite you to join us.  Our goal is to create a community--a "movement" if you will--of food entreprenuership in Indiana. Collaboration and sharing is how we got where we are, and it's the only way we will grow.

AGENDA

  • A business-minded tour of the plant.
    • What is the true cost, capacity, and efficiency of our equipment?
    • What regulator hurdles did we have to overcome, and how?
  • A roundtable discussion on getting a product to market
    • What are the biggest hurdles to doing business with grocery stores?  And, what ways have we found to get past them.
    • What has been your experience with distributors and brokers?
    • How do we get more local products in front of decision-makers at grocery stores?
    • How do we get more local products in front of consumers?
  • The unveiling of Husk's new local food directory, www.huskmarket.com, and how you can participate.
