THE DOOR COMMUNITY AUDITORIUM WELCOMES\THE UNITED STATES COAST GUARD BAND IN CONCERT ON JULY 24
NEW LONDON, CONN—From its home at the Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut, the United States Coast Guard Band travels to Fish Creek to present “Liberty for All,” an entertaining evening concert on Friday, July 24, 2009, at the Door Community Auditorium at 8 p.m. The 55-member Coast Guard Band is one of our nation’s elite premier military bands and the proud musical representative of the United States Coast Guard and the Department of Homeland Security.
The musical line-up comprises a striking array of selections, such as Leonard Bernstein’s bitingly satirical Overture to “Candide,” Frank Ticheli’s moving setting of “Amazing Grace,” and the young American composer John Mackey’s “Kingfishers Catch Fire.” James Beckel wrote “Liberty for All” for orchestra and narrator and the Coast Guard Band commissioned the band arrangement. For the narration, Beckel selected moving passages from the prose of Presidents George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and John F. Kennedy.
Two talented soloists are featured in the performance. MUC Joel Flunker is the gifted cornetist in “A Tribute to Bix Beiderbecke” and soprano MU1 Lisa Williamson sings Antonín Dvořák’s “Song to the Moon”—in Czech! The program ends with the stirring “America, the Beautiful,” also with MU1 Williamson as soloist.
This concert is free and open to the public, but tickets are required. At this time, all tickets have been distributed. The Door Community Auditorium is requesting that anyone who has tickets, but is unable to attend the program please return the tickets to the box office.
The Door Community Auditorium is located adjacent to Gibraltar Schools in Fish Creek, just north of the town center on State Highway 42. Box office hours are Monday through Friday, 10 – 3 pm; weekend show days, 11 – 3 pm; and one hour prior to a performance. For additional information call the Door Community Auditorium at(920) 868-2728. To learn more about the U.S. Coast Guard Band visit www.uscg.mil/band.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Pure Prairie League in Concert
Saturday, July 11, 8:00 pm
With a sound that proves you can go home again, Pure Prairie League is all about great country music. And on Saturday, July 11th at 8 pm, the band that was first formed in 1969 is performing at the Door Community Auditorium in what promises to be a fun-filled concert of memorable music!
As so often happens in the world of music, Pure Prairie League’s founding was all about timing…and the timing was perfect. Playing cover tunes at local bars in southern Ohio, a group of young musicians from southern Ohio were honing their performance skills. Naming their band was as serendipitous as signing their first professional contract.
In 1939 Errol Flynn starred in the western-themed movie Dodge City. Significant to the story line of the film, the Pure Prairie League is a group of elderly temperance women. Thirty years later, then drummer Tom McGail adopted the name for the band that was emerging. And Pure Prairie League was born.
Shortly thereafter, Pure Prairie League was signed by RCA records following an appearance in Cleveland, Ohio. Pure Prairie League, their premier album, was released a year later in 1972. Notably featuring a 1927 Norman Rockwell Saturday Evening Post cover, the illustration included an old cowboy named Luke. That cover immediately caught on with the band and has been included on the cover of every Pure Prairie League recording since that first one.
Following the release of that first album, Pure Prairie League has weathered bumps along the road. During the years preceding the conclusion of the Vietnam War, the band temporarily relocated to Canada. Band members changed and RCA dropped the band. But Pure Prairie League fans continued to tune into radio stations where cuts from their second album Bustin’ Out received air time.
RCA capitulated and resigned Pure Prairie League. Shortly after the ink on the contract was dry, Two Lane Highway (1975) was recorded. “Amie,” an ode to a sometime love, was released as a single from the album, and remains a classic to this day.
In the years to follow, Pure Prairie League was met with the challenges of the changing musical landscape. But newcomers like Vince Gill brought inspiration and new ideas to Pure Prairie League. In 1978, their final album under the RCA label, Can’t Hold Back, was recorded. It was strongly influenced by rock, noticeably by the addition of saxophone to the elimination of pedal steel guitar.
The sound may have been an odd pairing, but it worked. And under the Casablanca label Pure Prairie League’s single “Let Me Love You Tonight” from the album Firin’ Up hit the pop charts at #7 and soared to #1 on the contemporary adult charts. And the music continues…
Credited with bringing country music into the mainstream in the mid-1970s, Pure Prairie League has weathered the multiple musical movements to emerge tried and true. And with the release of All in Good Time fans have discovered Pure Prairie League all over again. And the band’s timelessness has been assured.
Tickets for Pure Prairie League are $30/$26 and $22, and are available at the Door Community Auditorium box office, by phone (920.868.2728), or via the www.dcauditorium.org. Box office hours are Monday through Friday, 10 – 3 pm; weekend show days, 11 – 3 pm; and one hour prior to a performance. The Door Community Auditorium is located in Fish Creek, just north of the town center on Highway 42.
We just recevied this press release! Mark you calendars for July 18th!
