Nardone has been offering creativity programs since 2004; Campbell has been meditating for 20 years.

    - "Dan Newton's Café Accordion Orchestra (CAO) plays an eclectic mix full of French flair, Latin heat, and Bohemien attitude. It's the sound Parisian hipsters in the 1920s would have been down with, a world of swinging tunes perfect for dancing or listening. CAO presents the accordion as few people expect, blending it with guitar, mandolin, bass, percussion, and vocals. For the fan of accordion music this is a must and if you don't like the much maligned squeezebox, Dan Newton's Cafe Accordion Orchestra could very well convert you.
    CAO is led by DAN NEWTON on accordion and vocals, with ERIC MOHRING on mandolin, violin and vocals, ERIK LILLESTOL on bass and vocals, ROBERT BELL on guitar and vocals and JOE STEINGER on percussion." http://www.cafeaccordion.com. Tickets $22, ($21 Stu/Sen, $19 Mem, $11 Child under 12)

The band is comprised of 5 highly talented musicians who not only excel at their instruments, are song writers with years of experience playing a variety of styles and performing in dozens of situations. In addition to original material, the Jandee Lee Porter Band performs cover songs that span sounds from yesterday and today. You'll hear Miranda, Carrie and Little Big Town as well as Johnny, Patsy, John Prine and others. Expect something different.
