American Classics presents In the Mood – A Time Capsule of Classics from 1939 with Valerie Anastasio & Tim Harbold
American Classics is delighted to present acclaimed song duo Valerie Anastasio & Tim Harbold in their new show, In the Mood – A Time Capsule of Classics from 1939. Valerie & Tim showcase a remarkable year in film and song with songs from the classic MGM film The Wizard of Oz, along with beloved song hits of the year including In the Mood, All the Things You Are, Good Morning, And the Angels Sing, Sunrise Serenade, Beer Barrel Polka, and Lydia the Tattooed Lady. Valerie & Tim have delighted audiences on many American Classics programs and now are featured in their first solo show. Previously they were heard in shows honoring Rodgers & Hart, Irving Berlin, and as featured performers in the hundredth birthday celebration of Alexander’s Ragtime Band in 2011. They joined Benjamin Sears & Bradford Conner for two shows, Fred & Ethel – Great Songs of Astaire and Merman and Marching Along With Time – Irving Berlin Songs, 1935-1945, both of which have also been recorded. With Sears & Conner they have a third CD, Noël & Cole – Together With Music (songs by Noël Coward and Cole Porter). Valerie has appears regularly in the Musicals in Concert series, most recently in Watch Your Step this past November, and she is on the recent live concert recording of songs by Sammy Cahn. For twenty-five years, Valerie and Tim have invited audiences to their unique world of song, blending jazz standards, show tunes, and comic cabaret with their own distinctive musicianship and humor. Their shows encompass a trademark variety of styles, ranging from intimate renditions of Gershwin and Sondheim to torch songs to zany, crowd-pleasing performances of Cole Porter’s The Physician and Barry Manilow’s Copacabana. Even classical art songs can enter the mix to keep the audiences surprised and entertained. In 2013 Valerie and Tim released their first solo CD, Give ‘em the Oo-La-La. They have also recorded three CDs of music by Cole Porter, Noël Coward, Irving Berlin, and others, with Benjamin Sears & Bradford Conner Valerie & Tim have performed New England, including sold-out performances at Don’t Tell Mama (New York) and Scullers Jazz Club (Boston). Valerie Anastasio also has a special interest in new music and is featured on Saving Daylight Time: New American Songs (Albany Records, Troy 343). Tim Harbold directs choral activities at Wheaton College and is also director of the Oure Pleasure Singers, an advanced chamber choir based in Attleboro, MA. For more about Valerie and Tim, visit their website www.valerieandtim.com. American Classics is the Boston area’s only performing organization dedicated solely to American music. Since their first season in 1995 they have presented critically acclaimed concerts of vocal and instrumental music. Two American Classics specialties are the music of Irving Berlin and concert performances of rarely-given musicals, including first revivals of Berlin’s first two shows (Watch Your Step from 1914 and Stop! Look! Listen! from 1915) and the first reconstruction and revival of the classic Howard Dietz & Arthur Schwartz revue The Band Wagon (1931) in 2001. Little-known musicals by George & Ira Gershwin, Cole Porter, and Richard Rodgers & Lorenz Hart have also been featured. The group has also commissioned new works from area composers. In 2012 American Classics saluted Fenway Park’s one hundredth season and later sang the National Anthem at for the season’s second game. Critics have called American Classics concerts “pure delight” (Boston Phoenix) and hailed them as “people you want to hear” (Boston Globe).

An Evening With Chris Botti
Since the release of his 2004 critically acclaimed CD “When I Fall In Love”, Chris Botti has become the largest-selling American instrumental artist. His success has crossed over to audiences usually reserved for pop muisc and his ongoing association with PBS has led to four #1 jazz albums, as well as multiple Gold, Platinum and Grammy Awards. Most recently, his latest album “Impressions” won the Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental Album at this year’s 55th Grammy Awards. Performing worldwide and selling more than three million albums, he has found a form of creative expression that begins in jazz and expands beyond the limits of any single genre. Over the past three decades, Botti has recorded and performed with the best in music, including Sting, Barbra Streisand, Josh Groban, Yo-Yo Ma, Michael Bublé, Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, John Mayer, Andrea Bocelli, Joshua Bell, Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and even Frank Sinatra. Hitting the road for as many as 300 days per year, the trumpeter has also performed with many of the finest symphonies and at some of the world’s most prestigious venues from Carnegie Hall and the Hollywood Bowl to the Sydney Opera House and the Real Teatro di San Carlo in Italy. “Impressions”, Botti’s 2012 Columbia Records and Grammy winning release, is the latest in a stellar parade of albums – including “When I Fall In Love” (2004), “To Love Again: The Duets” (2005), “Italia” (2007), and the CD/DVD “Chris Botti in Boston” (2009) – that has firmly established him as a clarion voice in the American contemporary music scene. Playing with his uniquely expressive sound and soaring musical imagination, Botti is joined on the disc by featured artists Andrea Bocelli, Vince Gill, Herbie Hancock, Mark Knopfler, and David Foster in a warm, intimate celebration of melodic balladry. With “Impressions” and the albums that preceded it, Chris Botti has thoroughly established himself as one of the important, innovative figures of the contemporary music world.

Brian Regan
One of the most respected comedians in the country, Brian Regan is a legendary performer selling out theaters from coast to coast and earning praise from the press, the public, and fellow comedians: “He is one of my favorite, favorite stand-up comedians.” – Jerry Seinfeld “Honestly, Brian Regan’s the best stand-up working today. Period.” – Patton Oswalt “You’re the guy people look up to…Brian Regan’s the funniest guy…there’s Brian Regan and then there’s other people.” – Marc Maron I’ll take all of that guy you got…Very funny man” – David Letterman With his first appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman in 1995, Regan solidified his place on the show and recently made his 26th appearance, the most of any comedian on the CBS show. Since his beginnings in comedy, riding Greyhound buses from comedy club to comedy club, Regan always brought new material when returning to a city; and the fans would return again and again to see what new insights Regan would uncover. It is this prolific ability that has grown Regan’s fan base in to a non-stop theater tour visiting close to 100 cities each year since 2005 and continuing through 2014. Regan occasionally ventures off the stand-up stage; he recently appeared in Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, will be seen in the upcoming Chris Rock movie Finally Famous and voiced the character of Weib Lunk for the 40th episode of The Looney Tunes Show titled Spread Those Wings and Fly, but his main focus is stand-up comedy. In fact, last August, Regan sold out the legendary, 8600-seat Red Rocks Amphitheater outside of Denver, and in February ‘14, Regan performed two sold-out shows at the 12,500-seat Energy Solutions Arena in Salt Lake City. Regan’s two hour-long TV specials, two CD’s and three DVD’s have set a standard of excellence: All By Myself (2010), is available on CD and download only through his website; his two hour-long Comedy Central specials, The Epitome of Hyperbole (2008), and Brian Regan Standing Up (2007) are available on DVD, and on Netflix; I Walked on the Moon (2004) is available on DVD through his website and Brian Regan Live (1997) is available on CD.

The Pink Floyd Experience
Tom Quinn: Band leader, lead guitarist, and relentless crusader for all things “Pink Floyd”. In 1973, The Dark Side Of The Moon was released. That same year Tom bought his first guitar, and started his first band. From day one, his chief mentor was David Gilmour. Tom also cites Joe Walsh and Leslie West as big influences on his playing. He dates the musical roots of PFX back to 1994, and Pink Floyd’s Division Bell tour stop in San Diego. The band hit the stage in April 1995, and went on to garner many San Diego Music Awards from 1999 to 2003. Gus Beaudoin was born on May 3, 1952, and started playing bass guitar at age 13. With almost 40 years of musical experience to draw from, Gus is well-respected by his peers for his talent and tenacity. Players such as Tim Bogart, Chris Squire, Stanley Clarke, and also early Motown and the Monkees were big influences on Gus’s powerful and rock-solid style. Gus has toured across the United States and Canada playing many styles of music, including rock, country, jazz, disco, and classical. Gus and Tom Quinn joined up in 1997 and started playing Floyd music anywhere someone would let them set-up their equipment, out of pure love for the music of Pink Floyd. Randy McStine is a young native of Endicott, NY. Beginning his music career at the age of ten, McStine has continued on a path of musical discovery and self-reinvention as an artist. Since the birth of his solo project, Lo-Fi Resistance, in 2010, Randy has branched out into many new territories as a musician. Recently, his work has been used for national television commercials, as well as being hired to perform alongside members of Yes and Triumph on a tribute album to the Canadian rock trio, Rush. The new Lo-Fi Resistance album, Chalk Lines, was released on December 11th, 2012. A year and a half in the making, the album is a powerful hybrid of Alt-Rock, Singer-Songwriter, and Progressive influences. Featuring members of Porcupine Tree and King’s X, Chalk Lines is the most exciting chapter of McStine’s work to date. Jesse Molloy, saxophone player based out of San Diego is a dynamic complement to the PFX sound. Jesse tours nationally with his group, On The One, which is lead by Jesse and PFX drummer John Staten. Jesse has toured internationally with several acts, including the Giant People Ensemble, and the Jamaican National Orchestra. Molloy has shared stages with many including Karl Denson and the Wailers. He has studied under the great Charles McPherson and Rhett Bender. John Cox has been playing keyboards since age 9, and is self-taught. In 1976 he bought a Moog synthesizer and formed the space music group Embryo with synthesist Steve Roach and was hooked on creating atmospheres and textures with sound. John cites Jan Hammer, Beethoven, Carl Stalling, and Frank Zappa as his major influences. He has also played keys in the YES tribute band Roundabout, and the Jethro Tull tribute Heavy Horses. John resides in San Diego, California, and in his spare time he loves to ride his GSX-R and Supermoto bikes at track days with his two sons. Bob Sale was born in Oakville, ON, eventually moving to Toronto, then to Chicago, and currently lives in San Diego with his wife and two kids. Bob first heard Pink Floyd as a kid listening late at night to WLS underground radio in Chicago and has been playing drums professionally since he was 15. Bob has had the honour of working with many excellent artists including, Rick Elias, Eric Johnson, Albert Lee, Peter and Gordon, and Ben Vereen. He also worked on the soundtrack to the Tom Hanks movie, “That Thing You Do!”

Tool Training: Manual Milling Machine FEBRUARY

Description:

The manual mills in the Asylum machine shop are amazingly versatile tools- they can be used to create precisely dimensioned parts out of aluminum, steel, or plastic, cut sheets of metal to size, or miter tubes for welding. This class will teach you how to setup a bridgeport-style mill for precision machining, how to securely hold a part, how to precisely measure distances down to one-thousandth of an inch, and how to make facing cuts and drill holes using a wide variety of mill bits and accessories.

Successful completion of this course will qualify students to use the Artisan's Asylum Bridgeport mills independently as member.

This short class will not, however, offer students the opportunity to become expert in the operation of this tool -- that requires applying these techniques to a project over many hours, whether independently or in a longer form class. This training will simply give the student the information they need in order to operate the tool without harming the machine, themselves, or the people around them. It also serves as a good refresher for those who've become rusty after years away from the mill.

Class Goals:

Students will learn to:

  • Move the mill table accurately along x, y, and z axes
  • Change mill spindle speeds for different tasks and materials
  • "True" the mill table using a dial indicator
  • Attach a vise to the mill table, and identify the uses of different fixturing accessories. 
  • Securely clamp a small aluminum block.
  • Identify a variety of mill bits and their uses.
  • "Face", or cut a side of, an aluminum block to achieve a precise dimension and smooth finish.
  • Find the edge of a clamped workpiece, and drill a hole a precise distance from the edge.
  • Clean and maintain the mill.

Prerequisites:

No previous experience required, but Hands-On Metalworking Tools training recommended (see upcoming available dates listed at http://artisansasylum.com/current-classes/#sectionmetalworking). Students must be at least 18 years old.

Materials Provided:

Aluminum block: $3. Bring some cash, or bring a 1"-ish X 1"-ish X 2"-ish aluminum scrap piece

What to Bring:

Hair ties for long hair, closed-toed shoes, long-sleeve shirt.

Event Time:

Manual Mill Tool Trainings run every other Tuesday evening from 7:15pm to 9:15pm. Select your desired date from the dropdown menu above.

Instructor: 

Damian Ward began working with metal when he brought home an oxy-acetylene rig in 2009 and began welding. Arc welding followed soon after, along with melting and casting aluminum. Since joining the Artisan's Asylum, Damian has spent almost all of his free time in the machine shop and has lost track of how many hours he has spent in front of the mill. 

In addition to his metalworking, Damian has worked on a dairy farm, pulled network cable, worked for Lockheed Martin, and practiced criminal law. Damian's favorite Doctor Who companion is Wilfred Mott.


REFUNDS: We offer full refunds for any class cancellations more than one week in advance of the class start date. After that point refunds are contingent upon the Asylum being able to fill the seat. No refunds whatsoever are offered for same-day cancellations. To request a refund for a class, please fill out this form

CANCELLATIONS: Your class may be cancelled if too few people register. A decision will be made a few days before the class is scheduled to run, and you will be notified of the cancellation and your registration refunded in full.
