    - The Funky Dawgz Brass Band are one of the premier touring acts on the live music scene today. Emerging from Connecticut, these young men have engulfed the spirit and traditions of New Orleans as well as earned the respect from local musicians who grew up and reside in the city. It is impossible not to enjoy yourself during a show as they play a contagious upbeat mix of traditional New Orleans R&B, original music, hip hop, funk, and today’s top hits with a brass twist. They have toured internationally and have been featured in all corners of the live music scene. From playing sold out shows at Madison Square Garden as the horn section for Dispatch, to Camp Bisco, to closing out The Peach Music Festival, their performances flow seamlessly from EDM festivals to jam band festivals to traditional New Orleans second line parades. There is a reason they were featured as one of Live For Live Music’s Brass Bands You Need To Know. The Funky Dawgz are dropping jaws. These high energy horns have been featured on bills with Dispatch, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, We The Kings, Snarky Puppy, The Soul rebels, Lettuce, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Rebirth Brass Band, Twiddle, Turkuaz, Kung Fu, Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Ryan Montbleau, and Glen David Andrews and the list continues. When the band is not playing shows they are giving back to the community. The Funky Dawgz aims to connect, engage, inspire and rejuvenate music education in inner city schools across the country. The band frequently gives performances and master classes to young musicians in elementary, middle and high schools across the region.

    - They’re back!
    Blue Öyster Cult has been thrilling fans of hard rock worldwide for over four decades with powerful albums loaded with classic hits!
    Indeed, the Long Island, NY-¬‐based band is revered within the hard rock and heavy metal scene for its pioneering work. Blue Öyster Cult occupies a unique place in rock history because it’s one of very few hard rock/heavy metal bands to earn both genuine mainstream critical acclaim as well as commercial success.
    The band is often cited as a major influence by other acts such as Metallica, and BÖC was listed in VH1’s countdown of the greatest hard rock bands of all time.
    Upon the release of BÖC’s self-¬‐titled debut album in 1972, the band was praised for its catchy-¬‐yet-¬‐heavy music and lyrics that could be provocative, terrifying, funny or ambiguous, often all in the same song. BÖC’s canon includes three stone-¬‐cold classic songs that will waft through the cosmos long after the sun has burned out: The truly haunting “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” from 1976’s Agents of Fortune, the pummeling “Godzilla” from 1977’s Spectres and the hypnotically melodic “Burnin for You” from 1981’s Fire of Unknown Origin. Other notable BÖC songs include “Cities on Flame with Rock and Rol” ,”Then Came the Last Days of May”,”I Love the Night”, “In Thee”,”Veteran of the Psychic Wars”, “Dominance and Submission”, “Astronomy,” “Black Blade” and Shooting Shark.”
    Catch all of these hits and more when BLUE ÖYSTER CULT returns to The Paramount Stage

    - Saturday, January 20 – Sunday, June 10, 2018. New Exhibition.

    Patriotic Persuasion: American Posters of the First World War features a selection of works donated to the Bruce Museum by Beverly and John W. Watling III.

    The United States involvement in World War I lasted only a brief twenty months, from April 1917 to November 1918, but the nation’s military and propaganda strategies were of enormous consequence.

    The variety of approaches which government agencies used to encourage wide-spread participation in the war effort was impressive, from the allure of artist Howard Chandler Christie’s young woman who, in a1917 poster, seductively proclaimed, “I WANT YOU FOR THE NAVY,” to the inquisitional tone of a war loan poster of the next year: “Are you 100% American? Prove it! Buy U.S. Government Bonds.” In the era of radio and film’s infancy, posters remained an essential medium for the public’s dreamlife, capable of nightmarish manipulation: in one of the iconic wartime posters from the Watling donation, artist Joseph Pennell in 1918 powerfully imagined a partially destroyed Statue of Liberty and New York City aflame in the background, with the plea, “That Liberty Shall Not Perish from the Earth/Buy Liberty Bonds/Fourth Liberty Loan.”

    Featuring these works, as well as numerous other posters that combine image and text in ingenious, surprising, and sometimes disturbing combination, “Patriotic Persuasion” marks the centennial of American participation in the First World War. It is organized by Kenneth E. Silver, Bruce Museum Adjunct Curator of Art and Elizabeth Smith, Zvi Grunberg Resident Fellow at the Bruce Museum (2017-2018).

    The Bruce Museum is closed on Mondays.

    - Stamford EMS is offering a new Bleeding Control Basics course that teaches how to stop bleeding until medical help can arrive. Developed in response to mass casualty incidents throughout the nation, the class provides proper bleeding control techniques that can save a life. The ninety-minute course takes place on Thursday, January 25th at 7 pm at Stamford EMS headquarters, located at 684 Long Ridge Road in Stamford. The cost is $25, and is appropriate for both the general public and healthcare providers. Visit click for details to register today.

    Similar to learning CPR, learning bleeding control techniques can save a life, as uncontrolled bleeding can cause death in as little as 5-10 minutes. In a moment of serious bleeding, a bystander can become an initial responder, and potentially make all the difference for someone in their greatest time of need.

    The course provides hands-on practice in basic bleeding control techniques, such as direct pressure, dressings and tourniquet application. Participants will come away from the class feeling confident that they can manage a bleeding emergency until EMS can get to the scene.

    Stamford Emergency Medical Services, Inc. is Connecticut’s only accredited EMS agency, responding to over 14,000 calls each year as a private, nonprofit organization. Since it accepted responsibility for Stamford’s ambulance services in 1992, Stamford Emergency Medical Services has remained clearly focused in its mission to provide high quality, compassionate emergency care and education to the communities it serves.

    - Hudson Chorale, the area’s largest mixed voice chorus, will begin its 2018 season with matinee performances on Saturday, January 27 at 3:00 pm and Sunday, January 28 at 3:00 pm of Franz Joseph Haydn’s masterpiece, Die Schöpfung (The Creation). There is no better place to experience a concert of great sacred music than the magnificent and inspirational Queen of the Apostles Chapel at Maryknoll, 55 Ryder Road, Ossining, NY. To bring out the beauty and depth of the text, which is based on the biblical Book of Genesis, the work will be performed in its original German and include full orchestral accompaniment as well as professional soloists.

    Music Director, Ira Spaulding, with a singing, conducting and teaching career of more than 40 years, promises to offer up such a dynamic performance that even audience members who have heard the piece several times before will leave the concert with the feeling of hearing it for the first time.

    During the majority of his musical career, Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) was the most celebrated composer in the world, and is credited with being the father of the symphony and the father of the string quartet. His oratorio, Die Schöpfung, is considered by many to be his greatest musical achievement.

    Following the concert, the audience is invited to an informal reception to meet and chat with the conductor, soloists, orchestra and chorus members while enjoying some delicious refreshments, a long-standing Hudson Chorale tradition. Ticket Prices: Advance Sale-$25; Door-$30; Students-$10. Advanced Sale tickets can be purchased on-line at click for details by calling 1-800-838-3006. Handicap parking is available at the venue.

Fun things to do in Bedford

Since 1986 the Town Planner Calendar has been keeping families across America up-to-date about events and other fun things to do right in their hometown.

Delivered free of charge every December to millions of homes across America, our full-sized, full-color calendar is a time-tested and beloved tool for helping families stay organized. The large date blocks are not only loaded with lots of nearby events and fun things to do, there's plenty of room for you to record your own family's important events like birthdays, anniversaries, parties -- anything you have planned -- so everybody in the house can see them whenever they go to the fridge, out the front door, or wherever you choose to display it.

But there's more! Every calendar is full of coupons from popular local merchants, so you can save money while supporting small businesses right in your hometown.

And don't miss our beautiful full-color photography! Every month you'll recognize a new photo from someplace close to home, submitted to us by a local photographer. If you'd like to have your own hometown photos included in our calendar, please contact your local publisher for more information.

We truly believe it's better to "keep it local". From coast to coast and border to border, our network of franchisees work with organizations and merchants right in their community to make sure you get the information and savings you care about. We prefer to feature family-friendly events that are a short walk or drive away, and coupons from local businesses so you can support your hometown economy.

If there's something happening close to home that folks in your neighborhood need to know about, why not submit it to us today? Please note that publication of your event is subject to approval by your local Town Planner publisher.

If there's no Town Planner calendar in your area, you could be looking at a great business opportunity! Town Planner franchisees set their own hours and can work out of their homes while providing a valuable service to both homeowners and local businesses in the area.
