Buffalo Springfield laid the foundation for folk-rock in Southern California. With inventive songwriting, stunning harmonies and complete mastery of their instruments, they have had a major impact despite only being together for a few years.

Although most of the original members – Stephen Stills, Neil Young, Richie Furay, Dewey Martin and Bruce Palmer – have stellar solo careers to speak of, their time as five musicians has given us a number of timeless hits.

How did they land on the name Buffalo Springfield? We review the origins of the name as well as the band’s heritage, below.

Behind the band name

According to the liner notes of their self-titled box set, the band got their name from the side of a steamroller made by the Buffalo Springfield Roller Company. Stills and Furay were staying with producer Barry Friedman for a while when they saw one of these steamrollers parked outside. They thought it sounded good and adopted it as a nickname. Buffalo Springfield played its first show under the name at Troubadour in 1966.

The group was formed following a chance meeting in a Los Angeles traffic jam between Stills and Furay (who were former bandmates) and Young and Palmer (who played together in The Mynah Birds). Young came to LA hoping to meet Stills but was unsuccessful in his pursuit. Just when they were about to give up and head for San Fransico, the foursome saw each other on the road, stopped, and reunited. They added Martin to the mix soon after, creating the band’s classic line-up.

For what it’s worth

The group’s first single “Nowadays Clancy Can’t Even Sing” was released in August 1966. Although the song did well in Los Angeles (reaching the Top 25), it had little impact elsewhere. Shortly after, they released their self-titled debut album.

In the latter part of 1966, Stills composed what would become Buffalo Springfield’s most iconic song “For What It’s Worth”. The song was a response to a protest that turned violent after Pandora’s Box nightclub on the Sunset Strip closed. On Thanksgiving Day, the band performed the song at Whiskey a Go Go. It performed so well that they eventually recorded “For What It’s Worth” and re-released their debut album with it included as the opener.

The track became one of the most popular protest songs of the 60s. Despite its origins, the song was quickly co-opted as an anti-war anthem that marked many counter-culture movements of the Vietnamese era.

Line-up changes and breakup

Despite their massive legacy, the band’s career was short-lived. Prior to their breakup in 1968, the band experienced a number of line-up changes, arrests, and breakups.

In 1976, while Young was temporarily away, David Crosby filled in on guitar duties. Palmer was kicked out for possession of marijuana the same year, prompting Jim Messina (who worked as an engineer on the band’s second album) to become a permanent replacement on bass. Young began appearing less and less at band-booked shows, leaving Stills to cover lead guitar. After a show at the Long Beach Auditorium in May 1968, the group held a meeting to arrange their breakup.

While they only produced three albums together, the group launched the careers of its members, who all became key figures on the folk scene.

Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians becomes the first tribe in the United States to add donor registration to tribal IDs – Grand Forks Herald https://gogogoairheart.com/turtle-mountain-band-of-chippewa-indians-becomes-the-first-tribe-in-the-united-states-to-add-donor-registration-to-tribal-ids-grand-forks-herald/ Tue, 15 Nov 2022 01:18:00 +0000 https://gogogoairheart.com/turtle-mountain-band-of-chippewa-indians-becomes-the-first-tribe-in-the-united-states-to-add-donor-registration-to-tribal-ids-grand-forks-herald/ BELCOURT, ND – The story of a young boy in need of a new heart has inspired historic change within the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians.

BELCOURT, ND – The story of a young boy in need of a new heart has inspired historic change within the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians. Recently, the Native American tribe in northern North Dakota became the first in the nation to add donor registration to their tribal IDs.

Joan Azure, the driving force behind the effort to put donor registration on Turtle Mountain’s tribal IDs, continued the change in honor of her grandson Greyson Parisien, who died in 2019. Now she encourages Tribe members check the box to become a donor when they renew their credentials.

“This check mark not only registers you as a donor, but symbolizes a little boy’s legacy of love, strength and unity for this community,” Joan Azure said.

On Monday, November 14, TMBCI and LifeSource, an organization that facilitates the process of organ, eye and tissue donation in North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota, hosted an event to celebrate the deployment of identification with donor designation, called the Greyson Initiative. Tribal leaders, Greyson’s family and others affected by organ donation in the community shared how the initiative will help the community of Turtle Mountain and others in need of organ transplants.

Greyson was born in December 2017 with a congenital heart defect. Although he underwent heart surgery, he ended up needing a heart transplant. He waited 12 months and received a transplant in April 2019. In September 2019 his health deteriorated and he died of complications from pneumonia.

Shortly after the death of her grandson, Joan Azure learned that reservations in the United States are among the regions with the lowest percentages of organ donors.

Joan Azure is wrapped in a star quilt by Vonica LaPlante as Azure’s friend Dr. Monica Mayer of the Tri-Affiliated Tribes, left, looks on Monday, Nov. 14, 2022, at an event on the Turtle Mountain Reservation Band of Chippewa in Belcourt, ND The Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa is the first tribal nation to offer donor registration on tribal ID cards.

Eric Hylden/Grand Forks Herald

As she considered how she could help increase the number of organ donors in her own community, she realized that ID could be a factor. Some community members do not have driver’s licenses or national ID cards, but do have tribal ID cards, which are a federally recognized form of identification.

“If we had it put on the tribal IDs, maybe we would have more people ticking the box because we knew it was supported by the tribal council,” she said.

Working with LifeSource, Joan Azure drafted a resolution and presented it to Tribal Council. The board unanimously approved the resolution in June 2022.

Tribal Chairman Jamie Azure came up with the name “Greyson Initiative” to honor the boy who inspired the change.

“It made sense with Greyson’s family as advocates,” he said.

ReeAnne Parisien, Greyson’s mother, said it was exciting to see the registration of donors on tribal ID cards.

“It makes me proud of him. I think if he was there, it would still happen,” Parisien said. “He was a big part of our community. I think he would be happy too.

The work of Greyson’s family has the potential to spark change beyond the Turtle Mountain Tribe, said Dr. Monica Meyer, representative for the northern segment of the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nation. Meyer is a longtime friend of Joan Azure and has experience with organ donation within her own family.

To continue the work of Joan Azure, she is committed to working to obtain donor designations on MHA Nation IDs.

“When we do this, the other tribes will follow,” she said.

Jamie Azure said he plans to check the box to become a donor this afternoon and expects many other tribe members to become donors as well.

“I know it will be a hit,” he said.

From college jam sessions to sold-out shows at some of Boston’s most intimate venues, local indie pop rock band Copilot brings a unique energy to the live music scene.

Ryan McDonald (vocals) has always loved playing music and started toying with the idea of ​​playing gigs in 2015, first organizing a solo act and soon adding the voice of Maggie Quealy to the mix. Ry said he remembered Maggie telling him she had failed an American Idol tryout, then hearing her voice and being amazed.

“For me, music wasn’t something that was in my plan,” Quealy said, “it wasn’t until I met Ry and all the guys (the rest of the band in their final form) that it has completely changed for me in the best of ways.”

The two played gigs as a duo for about two years until Jake Machell’s vocals were brought into the band. Machell had been in a band before Copilot, but took a break from performing while he waited for his touring member James Taylor to return, sounding and performing.

“Jake was the first person I met in college,” Ry said. “I remember sitting around a fire and hearing him sing a song he wrote and I was like, ‘How is that not a song?'”

Soon after, the band added two of their close college friends Austin Beveridge (Bev) on bass and drummer Dylan Allwine. The two had been in a band with Jack Snow who joined Copilot as guitarist. In 2018, the groups merged at a friends party called Tansa-palooza (famous among Contoocook New Hampshire locals).

“We ended up playing together there and then again at Rockwood Music Hall,” Ryan said, “Because Rockwood was one of our favorite places, we wanted to put on a great show and we teamed up again. and it locked us in.”

Since then, the group has remained in its final form.

“Six people is probably enough,” laughed Dylan, “we’re one member of the Doobey Brothers.”

Copilot began performing at various venues in Boston, but they accredited their first break into the local music scene for Loretta’s Last Call, a local country music bar that entrusted them with managing their biggest crowds.

“They gave us a really good launch pad in Boston, for a bar that’s a country bar to bring in an indie rock pop rock band and trusting us to handle a Friday and Saturday night crowd was a pretty big bone to launch,” Machell said.

The band had quite the momentum to build momentum and find their space and sound in the Boston music scene before the pandemic hit, which ultimately shut down live music and forced it into a whole new shape. The group reflected on the stark difference between live performances and the live shows they aired amid the pandemic. Machell said the transition between the two was long overdue, but also acknowledged the intimacy of playing their sets together without a live audience in the same space stream after stream.

“Gathering in the little apartment and clearing out the living room, I mean there was something intimate in there, the only place we went. We were rehearsing in Dylan’s room, he had a twin bed in there and he sat in his closet so we could all cuddle together.

While there were positives to the live broadcasts, Ryan recalled the difficulty of ensuring strong attendance.

“The hardest thing about the live stream was you knew it wasn’t going to last,” Ryan said. “I remember the first one everyone was like ‘We’re so excited to have some form of live music’ and then the next one it was like half the audience just dropped off so to be back on stage and being able to not talk to the camera is the best.

After returning to the live music scene, the band’s drummer, Dylan, had an accident that threatened his ability to walk, putting his drumming career in jeopardy. Dylan has since returned to drumming and performing with the band.

“We obviously didn’t plan for something like this to happen,” Bev said, “but it brought us closer together and made us more passionate about getting into the studio and moving forward as a band. .”

Emerging from Dylan’s accident, the band wrote and released their single “Gimme My Mans Back” on June 7 of that year.

“It means even more to me that we’re still the same core members after Dylan’s accident because it’s a bigger testament to our love for each other,” Ryan said.

Copilot has continued to release content, most recently their single “You were Nevah”, October 7. The creation of the song is inspired by the musical creation of Bev and the interesting lyrical inspiration of Ry.

“Bev brought me to her room and had a bass line and a drum loop and then this girl was mean to me on Tinder literally minutes before,” Ryan said, “and then we combined those two things and it was super fun.”

Much of the band’s music is the end result of a combination of minds, with each member contributing a different piece. The band are currently putting the finishing touches to their new album, which should be released in the coming months.

“We’ve been finding our sound for so long,” Ry said, “I think on this album we’re really digging it down and solidifying it.”

The Palm Springs High School courtyard on Saturday was filled with the sounds of birdsong, Native American vendor stalls and the smell of food during Kewet Native American Learning Day and Market presented by the Agua Caliente Band of the Cahuilla Indians.

The fourth annual Kewet, which is a Cahuilla word for “fiesta,” featured 72 booths celebrating Native American culture. Tribe President Reid Milanovich said the event was important to him and all tribe members as it provides an opportunity to share their culture with the community and discuss other tribes, such than the Navajos.

“There’s a lot of similarities not only in the beadwork and basketry, but also in some of the designs and all of these different things that we’re able to create. The ability to bring them in and give them the opportunity to sharing their culture too is just as important,” Milanovich said.

Pottery for sale at the Kewet Native American Learning Day and Market at Palm Springs High School in Palm Springs, California on November 5, 2022.

Kevin Jensen, a member of the Navajo tribe, had several bead medallions, keychains, necklaces and other items for sale, including turquoise silver rings. Some of these items have sold for as little as $45.

Jensen, from the Navajo Nation in northeastern Arizona, said many Navajo art forms such as beadwork, silverware and turquoise jewelry have been counterfeited by manufacturers in Turkey, China and in other countries. He said it is important to show the connection of the tribe with such objects.

“The art form of beadwork comes from our culture and traditions,” Jensen said. “Before all of this was introduced to our community, we had many of our traditional stones and seeds, like juniper berries. Our art forms have been around for centuries and[theSaturdayMarketisanewwayofidentifyingourselvesandembracingourculturewherewecomefromandhowwearerepresented”[Saturday’smarketisanewwayofidentifyingourselvesandembracingourculturewherewe’recomingfromandhowwe’rerepresented”[lemarchédusamediestunenouvellefaçondenousidentifieretd’embrassernotrecultured’oùnousvenonsetcommentnoussommesreprésentés”[Saturday’smarket isanewwayofidentifyingourselvesandembracingourculturewherewe’recomingfromandhowwe’rerepresented”

In early 2023, local residents and tourists will be able to visit the 10,000 square foot Agua Caliente Cultural Museum in downtown Palm Springs, which Milanovich described as “one of the most important projects this tribe will ever build. “.

“We’re going to be able to educate the whole community about who we are as a people and we’re going to be sharing our culture through our own voice,” Milanovich said. “There are a lot of museums, books and information that talk about the Cahuilla people, but it’s often not told by the Cahuilla people. It’s very important.”

ZWEIBRUCKEN, Germany – In October 1781, a French regiment with German-speaking troops helped defeat the British at Yorktown, Virginia, ending the American Revolutionary War and securing American independence.

Descendants of those who fought in the war joined local officials on Saturday to honor the regiment and the two brothers who led it by unveiling a plaque in their hometown of Zweibrucken, near Germany’s western border with France.

“We are very proud, as the city of Zweibrucken, to be part of the history of the United States,” the city’s mayor, Marlod Wosnitza, told about three dozen people who attended the inauguration. . “We have a long-standing partnership with this country.”

The plaque – awarded by the Daughters of the American Revolution, a lineage-based group whose members are descended from people who supported US independence efforts more than two centuries ago – is located at the site of the former family home of Christian and Wilhelm von Zweibrucken near the center of town.

Christian led the regiment, known by its French name of Régiment Royal Deux-Ponts, which his father Christian IV, Duke of Zweibrucken, assembled. It included members from the Palatinate and Saar regions of Germany and eastern France. Wilhelm served as second-in-command colonel.

About a year after arriving in North America, the regiment took part in the Battle of Yorktown, which proved to be the decisive engagement of the Revolution, forcing British troops to surrender and paving the way for the Treaty of Paris in 1783.

The festival, scheduled for Friday November 4th and Saturday November 5th at Marion’s Pavilion is the second multi-day music event hosted by area concert promoter Cody Dunbar. Friday’s performance features American Idol finalists and up-and-coming stars HunterGirl and Noah Thompson in a headlining arrangement. Saturday’s show features a trio of 1990 acts: All-4-One, LFO and Blessid Union of Souls.

While the previous Dunbar Music Festival only featured country artists, next week’s event will bring different styles of music to the area.

“The goal is just to add more entertainment for the area,” Dunbar said. “I try to mix some genres and give people the opportunity to see something different. I want people who might feel like they’ve had a show of the type of music they like an option to see something just for them.

Dunbar said Friday night was American Idol night, with the singing reality show’s latest winner, Noah Thompson, and runner-up HunterGirl.

“She’s as popular as he is. He’s got a song or two right now that’s going pretty well and she’s also found a huge fan base,” Dunbar said. “They’ve been co-headlining for a while. and they really hit it off, drawing 1,500 to 2,000 people every night.”

Dunbar said he was looking forward to Saturday night’s performance.

“I’m really excited because all over the United States right now there seems to be this kind of resurgence of bands from the 90s and 2000s. It’s music that I grew up with, but I haven’t doesn’t feel like that long ago.

‘We did everything we could:’ All-American Rejects is hosting a free pop-up show for all ages instead of the canceled festival on Saturday https://gogogoairheart.com/we-did-everything-we-could-all-american-rejects-is-hosting-a-free-pop-up-show-for-all-ages-instead-of-the-canceled-festival-on-saturday/ Sun, 23 Oct 2022 17:01:00 +0000 https://gogogoairheart.com/we-did-everything-we-could-all-american-rejects-is-hosting-a-free-pop-up-show-for-all-ages-instead-of-the-canceled-festival-on-saturday/ LAS VEGAS, Nev.

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) — In a devastating blow to tens of thousands of music fans, the first day of one of the most highly anticipated music festivals in recent memory was canceled on Saturday due to high winds: When We Were Young.

With the way the lineup was structured, many people were day ticket holders. Unfortunately, that meant Saturday ticket holders were left with no event to attend. But all was not lost.

Some bands on the lineup have held last-minute pop-up shows: like The All-American Rejects, who pulled off a free, all-ages show in front of hundreds in the Arts District.

The All-American Rejects were the first to announce a last-minute pop-up performance at the festival plaza on Twitter. Shortly after the festival was canceled, they tweeted that they would be performing at Soul Belly BBQ on Main Street in the Las Vegas Arts District.

Frontman Tyson Ritter spoke with FOX5 during the event and told Us he was concerned Friday night that the festival might be canceled after reviewing the forecast. At that time, he said he started making plans with the venue owner for the pop-up show.

“It sucks for anyone who’s come from a different country, anyone who’s been looking forward to this for a year, but it’s not our fault. And uh, we’ve done everything we can to try to ‘love, you know, band-aid like this corroded artery,’ Ritter said.

A fan told us she was grateful the band did this after being devastated by the news of the cancellation.

“I was like, ‘Well, that’s it. I guess I’m going to go home, not seeing anyone. I almost cried. So that was – I’m so thankful they did that , I feel like they really care about their fans. It’s just… I love you All-American Rejects! said When We Were ticket holder Anna Staples Saturday Young.

Ritter said it meant a lot to him to be able to shine a light on the Arts District.

“I think what we can do to compensate for that is like a gift. To be able to come to downtown Las Vegas – the real Las Vegas – and to be able to show people that there is an arts district, there is a working class who believe in what they do, they love their city and it’s not just fueled by tourism, there’s a soul to Soul Belly and everywhere around it,” Ritter said.

Staples said she enjoyed the show.

“It was probably actually one of the best shows of my life. Hyper intimate. It’s the closest I think I’ve ever been to performing. I’m so happy right now,” Staples said.

Other bands from the festival lineup performed pop-up shows at area casinos as stunned attendees searched for a place to go. The Palms Hotel and Casino hosted Bring Me The Horizon, another poster group. Lines of people snuck into the casino as people tried to get inside the Pearl Theater to see their performance.
