Soca J winds down the off-season and gears up for the summer onslaught of reggae and rhythm with a long-awaited return to the St. Joe Frontier Casino in you guessed it… St. Joseph, MO!
Performing “The Missouri Fables” with composer, guitarist and friend of the show, Anthony Glise this Friday, May 3 at the University of Missouri – Columbia.
The fables are a truly unique collection of living musical history and storytelling about our greatest state!
From the cover…
“Whatever they taught you in history class was dead wrong. This book contains the true history of the great state of Missouri as told by her residents —
some alive, some dead, some human.
If you’re like most people, you’ve often won- dered about setting traps for bear — Jesse James’ last thoughts — socialist gardening — flying cows and… just who was it that originally invented roses? Of course you’ve wondered about all these things!
Finally, the answers to all these, and many more questions, have been answered by the American- born (and Missouri-born) classical guitarist, composer and author Anthony Glise.
The Missouri Fables offer a whimsical, magical glimpse into the soul of the state which has been home to Scott Joplin, Eugene Field, Thomas Hart Benton, Joseph Pulitzer, Jesse James, Harry Truman, George Washington Carver, the Pony Express and the great American satirist, Mark Twain.”
Live at Nica’s 320 in KC celebrating the you know what with the you know who at the “highest” level of cuisine and classy!
Speed lessons, concerts, clinics. Free and open to the public. We like sports and stuff ’round here but Missouri is extremely progressive in the arts and particularly grateful for it’s native guitarists.
Thank you, Missourians!!!
“Jazz for the Classical Guitarist” with Jason Riley at 4pm.
Second Harvest Community Food Bank is preparing to officially kick off the Food Justice Movement on March 9 at 4 p.m. in Rock Port at the Velma Houts Fair Building (201 Highway 136 East). The Movement is aimed at raising awareness around the issue of hunger and encouraging the community to find ways to be part of the solution.
“By joining the Food Justice Movement, you have the opportunity to provide nutritious food to seniors, children and families. The Food Justice Movement is an effort to raise funds that will be used to respond immediately to the needs of those facing food insecurity in our region,” said Rachel Graves, chief development officer, at Second Harvest. Second Harvest has set a goal of raising $400,000 during the campaign.
By giving to the Food Justice Movement, in any amount, you will become part of the solution to hunger by expanding access to nutritious food to families in Northwest Missouri and Northeast Kansas. Because of Second Harvest’s incredible buying power, we can turn $1 into 3 nutritious meals and of all resources donated to Second Harvest, 96 percent goes directly to food acquisition, distribution and programs. Plus, because of Second Harvest’s four star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator, donors can rest assured knowing that Second Harvest practices sound fiscal management practices and accountability.
Donors who contribute $500 or more to the Food Justice Movement may qualify for a 50 percent tax credit from the Neighbor Assistance Program (NAP). If you have business income from a farm operation, rental property, an S-Corporation or royalties, you may qualify. Find out more information about NAP by visiting www.OurCommunityFoodBank.org/NAP.

To aid in this competition, residents in Tarkio, Mound City, Fairfax and Rock Port are encouraged to purchase their favorite peanut butter from their local grocery store on March 9 from 8 a.m. to noon. The winner will be announced at 4 p.m. at the Movement kickoff event.
