Thank You for Taking the Ride with Us

We'd like to thank you, our audience for being part of "the ride" by your presence at our latest show on August 19th for Klezmer music from the Boston-based band Ezekiel's Wheels, along with the jumpin', jivin' good time fun of Chip Newton, Carey Harwood and Roger Kohrs, otherwise known as The Undermanned String Band from Burlington, NC. Both of these groups put on a stellar show at The Creative Center in Greensboro that night with a brilliant mixture of talent and personality. Your attendance gave them the attention, response and camaraderie they deserve and your donations were appreciated by all the performers. When it all comes together, it is a hell of a good ride, wouldn't you say? THANK YOU for helping us be able to do what we love and aspire to. Please tell your friends and bring others into fold. Till next time... ride on!

The Undermanned String Band Joins In On August 19th Klezmer Band show.


Sometimes ideas take a long time to come to fruition. Patience is a virtue that can be in short supply in that process. Fortunately, we were able persevere in our efforts over the past year to find just the right musical situation to feature The Undermanned String Band, the opening act for August 19th show with Ezekiel's Wheels Klezmer band. Click here to learn all about the show.

The idea came back to us while working on another project The Collabative has been involved in called the "Talk Of Teronus". Hosts Dr. Drave ( a.k.a. Dave Fox) and Mike "Wezo" Wesolowski have an internet talk / music show featuring local and regional musicians that is produced by The Collabative. As luck would have it, Chip Newton - one of the members of the band - was scheduled as a guest on their show which was shot recently. It's hard to ignore the signs when you all end up in one room together. So, we broached the idea with Chip,  who conferred with his musical partner Carey Harwood and they said yes. Just like that a year later, we finally found the right situation for them to perform. We know you'll be glad we were able to work that out! Have a listen to the video below:
