The members of Magic Jackson have been hard at work in the studio on a new album that's set to be the label debut for IBC Records. The yet-to-be named album features a honing of the group's blend of rock and Dayton funk with lots of collaborations and guest appearances from other local and regional musicians.
Magic Jackson made a return visit to the WYSO studios for a live set on Kaleidoscope and to debut some of the tracks from their upcoming album. They'll be performing live on June 15 at J-Alan's in Dayton.
If you are interested in "Nonviolent Communication" then on Saturday, 10:00 a.m. Diane Diller will conduct a workshop on "Compassionate Conversation", a non-violent way to find common ground with others. This is at the Dayton International Peace Museum, and all are welcome.
In this installment of Excursions, The Relentless Mules visit WYSO to share their energetic brand of Bluegrass.
Based in Columbus, the Relentless Mules have played all across the country bringing high quality Bluegrass wherever they go. Many of the band’s members grew up in the tradition of Bluegrass, and this quality comes across in their playing, as you can tell they all greatly enjoy the music they play as much as their audience does.
A recent survey conducted by MadeInDaytonBlog.Com indicates that many manufacturing jobs in the Dayton area remain unfilled, despite large numbers of people looking for work.
The blog was started back in December as a clearinghouse for local manufacturers to communicate needs and exchange ideas. More than a hundred companies responded to the survey and said they have jobs that have remained unfilled – and many say the disconnect between available jobs and the unemployed comes down to skills.
