The Revivalists Work Two New Songs Into St. Patrick’s Day Celebration [Gallery]

first_imgThe Revivalists spent their St. Patrick’s Day in Bloomington, Illinois at The Castle Theater on Friday night, providing non-stop party time on their Still Feeling Good From Yesterday Tour. Without a doubt, frontman David Shaw, guitarist Zack Feinberg, pedal steel guitarist Ed Williams, bassist George Gekas, drummer Andrew Campanelli, saxophonist Rob Ingraham, and keys master/trumpeter Michael Girardot are carriers of good times, and last night’s performance was no exception.Playing mostly songs from their 2015 Men Amongst Mountains record, the New Orleans-based septet also went back in time with fan favorites “Sunny Days” and “Soul Fight,” along with a double-encoring “All in the Family” and “Criminal” to close. The Revivalists also performed two unreleased songs “The Door” and “You & I.”Photographer Keith Griner of Phierce Photography was in the house to capture the band in their best light.

As we reflect on 2019, we are filled with gratitude and appreciation for all that credit unions have done to support not only the Foundation, but the movement as a whole.We are most thankful for:144 credit union organizations that are Corporate Supporters of the Foundation this year. Their support is not only critical for the work that we do, but it showcases their passion and dedication to the constant improvement of our movement.The three 2019 Wegner Award winners Crystal Long, Diana Dykstra and the Nusenda Credit Union Foundation. They inspired and moved a room of 900 credit union people to think “What am I doing to change people’s lives? Am I doing enough?”. It was powerful and a reminder for us all that one individual CAN make a difference and an even bigger reminder that the credit union difference is alive and well. We can’t wait to celebrate our upcoming 2020 winners! continue reading »last_img read more

It has been a remarkable year for the Syrian, which culminated in the 23-year-old forward being named Asia’s 2017 Player of the Year in a glittering award ceremony held in Bangkok on Wednesday.Part of the Al-Hilal squad that made it all the way to the 2017 AFC Champions League final before a heartbreaking defeat to Japan’s Urawa Red Diamonds, Khrbin also shone for his country as they were only two steps away from reaching the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals in Russia.Khrbin finished with 10 goals in the competition, which also earned him the top scorer’s title for the competition in which his team finished as runners-up.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Like in the cup competition, Khrbin had to watch in agony as Australia outdid his Syrian in the Asian Final Playoff stage but the incredible story that Khrbin and his team mates had them as the favourite underdogs.”Omar (Abdulrahman) is among the best players in Asia and he won the award last year. If he was not among the best, he would not be nominated for the award. With the club and the national team, we did our best but it was not meant for us to win the ACL title and qualify for the World Cup finals. We hope that next year we can do better and get the ACL title for Al-Hilal.”For the Asian Cup in one year from now, we will try to do our best for the Syrian national team. We play and fight to bring happiness to our people. That is our main target. We have determination in matches but the determination is stronger when you have people who are hungry for the happiness and joy. Our people deserves to be happy,” said Omar at the press conference after receiving the awards.In winning this award, Khrbin is the first Syrian to ever to be recognised with this award, ousting last year’s winner in UAE’s Omar Abdulrahman and China’s Wu Lei. The initial nominees were determined using a point based system based on performances for club and country. Past winners of the coveted title includes Saudi Arabia’s Saeed Owairan back in 1994 to Hidetoshi Nakata (1997-98) to Ali Karimi (2004) to Zheng Zhi (2013).last_img read more
