Ales on Rails

What better season offers the perfect reason to savor the Arizona outdoors than Autumn? The cooling temperatures inspire the riparian foliage to mellow, filling the Verde Canyon with gold, amber and scarlet. The ripened bronzing of the wilderness is echoed by rich Arizona craft beers served during Verde Canyon Railroad’s ever-popular Ales on Rails event every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from October 5th to the 29th.

This popular seasonal party begins prior to the train's 1:00pm departure, starting each day at 11:00 a.m. on the depot patio with a great selection of Arizona craft beers, ranging from light and summery Kolsch to high-octane lagers and IPAs, from coppery-red and Scotch ales to dark stouts and chocolate porters. These Oktoberfest-style brews may have German roots but all are produced in Arizona breweries. Ales on Rails features an optional lunch of grilled sausages, special-recipe potato salad and hot pretzels served with a variety of gourmet cheeses perfect for dipping. All pair well with Arizona beers making it easy to find a winning combination.

The party continues onboard where beers may be purchased during the Fall Colors Tour, along with Verde Canyon Railroad’s own private-label beers from Sedona’s Oak Creek Brewing Company.

On stage, South of Winslow's dedication to vocal and musical mastery places them second-to-none with their performance of Eagles' popular classics. The band members include Bill Yates on drums, Bruce Gustin on lead guitar, David Solomon on rhythm guitar/ key board, Mark Myers, lead guitar and Tim Gliddon on bass guitar. 

All members share singing lead and together sing complex five part harmonies. The band has performed throughout Arizona, Nevada and Hawaii. Aside from their physical appearance, they have been mistaken for the real Eagles by listeners. 

The band's history includes an international event multi-band performance to a concert assembly of 18,000 in Honolulu. At that event the band performed on same stage with legendary song artists Kenny Loggins, Steve Augeri of Journey and Mickey Thomas of Jefferson Starship.

 When South of Winslow, Eagles Tribute Band performs, you will be all ears and smiles in reminiscence of Americana classic rock music.

Audiences look forward to Wes' crowd participation antics, along with a backing band that gives new meaning to the word funk.  Kevin Martin, lead singer and founder of Candlebox, said "Wes is awesome.  He's MAD talent!"  Los Angeles Music Magazine wrote "On an off night they will blow the roof off the joint. On a good night, they will save your soul." In 2016 WWB grew into larger theaters with larger audiences. Their tour schedule has featured music festival and tv appearances, as well as club appearances in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver, Chicago, Austin, and New Orleans.  Some upcoming large events include headlining both at the University of Phoenix Stadium for an Arizona Cardinals pre-game event and also at the Twin Peaks Oktoberfest in Tempe!

Stephen Jenkinson / Author Talk

Stephen Jenkinson teaches internationally and is the creator and principal instructor of the Orphan Wisdom School, founded in 2010. With Master’s degrees from Harvard University (Theology) and the University of Toronto (Social Work), he is revolutionizing grief and dying in North America. Stephen is redefining what it means to live, and die well. Apprenticed to a master storyteller, he has worked extensively with dying people and their families, is former programme director in a major Canadian hospital, former assistant professor in a prominent Canadian medical school, consultant to palliative care and hospice organizations and educator and advocate in the helping professions. He is also a sculptor, traditional canoe builder whose house won a Governor General’s Award for architecture.

He is the author of Die Wise: A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul (2015),
Dying well is not a matter of enlightened self-interest or personal preference. Dying well must become an obligation that living people and dying people owe to each other and to those to come. Die Wise teaches the skills of dying, skills that have to be learned in the course of living deeply and well. Not a seven step coping strategy, not an out-clause for trauma or sorrow, Die Wise is for everyone who, hell or high water, is not going to pull off eternity after all. Dying is not the end of wisdom and wisdom not exhausted by dying. Dying could be and must be the fullest expression and incarnation of what you’ve learned by living. It’s a moral obligation to die well.

If you love somebody, if you care about the world that’s to come after you, if you want somebody to be spared the lunacy of what you’ve seen, you’ve got to die wise.

Griefwalker - Documentary Showing

Griefwalker is a National Film Board of Canada feature documentary film, directed by Tim Wilson. It is a lyrical, poetic portrait of Stephen Jenkinson’s work with dying people. Filmed over a twelve year period, Griefwalker shows Jenkinson in teaching sessions with doctors and nurses, in counselling sessions with dying people and their families, and in meditative and often frank exchanges with the film’s director while paddling a birch bark canoe about the origins and consequences of his ideas for how we live and die. “If you love somebody, if you care about the world that’s to come after you, and if you want somebody to be spared the lunacy of what you’ve seen – you’ve got to die wise.”

With Master’s degrees from Harvard University (Theology) and the University of Toronto (Social Work), he is revolutionizing grief and dying in North America. Stephen is redefining what it means to live, and die well. Apprenticed to a master storyteller, he has worked extensively with dying people and their families, is former programme director in a major Canadian hospital, former assistant professor in a prominent Canadian medical school, consultant to palliative care and hospice organizations and educator and advocate in the helping professions. He is also a sculptor, traditional canoe builder whose house won a Governor General’s Award for architecture. He is the author of Die Wise: A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul (2015),

Dying well is not a matter of enlightened self-interest or personal preference. Dying well must become an obligation that living people and dying people owe to each other and to those to come. Stephen teaches the skills of dying, skills that have to be learned in the course of living deeply and well. Not a seven step coping strategy, not an out-clause for trauma or sorrow,This teaching is for everyone who, hell or high water, is not going to pull off eternity after all. Dying is not the end of wisdom and wisdom not exhausted by dying. Dying could be and must be the fullest expression and incarnation of what you’ve learned by living. It’s a moral obligation to die well.
If you love somebody, if you care about the world that’s to come after you, if you want somebody to be spared the lunacy of what you’ve seen, you’ve got to die wise.

Olson for what promises to be a night to remember at the Prescott Center for the Arts, on Saturday, November 11at 7pm.

American Blues Scene writes that Rein, whose latest album “Long Road” has received national acclaim, “possesses scorching guitar riffs and sultry vocals...perfect blending of hard-hitting blues and rock guaranteed to excite Blues fans. One of the Blues world's rising stars." Backing Watkins is the RD Olson Band, whose frontman “brings high-energy blues to fill your soul and move your feet…. staying true to the Blues styles of Muddy Waters, Luther Allison, Mojo Buford, and Chico Chism, but with a contemporary spin” (Indie Pulse Music).   Advance tickets $32.00 available at Prescott Center for the Arts box office tickets@pca.net/Performing Arts/PCA Presents, $38.00 at the door.  Box Office  928/445-3286  Hours 10-3 Tues- Sat.

On Friday, December 1st, the Elks Theatre will come alive with the spirt of those holiday specials with In the Christmas Mood: A Holiday Music Spectacular, produced by Khris Dodge Entertainment. The show features a star-studded cast including special guests, and a seven-piece band complete with horns that will light up the theater.

Bernstein: Symphony No. 1, “Jeremiah”
Mahler: Adagio from Symphony No. 10
 
 
Leonard Bernstein once exclaimed, “The work I have been writing all my life is about the struggle that is born of the crisis of our century: a crisis of faith.” With the “Jeremiah” Symphony, Bernstein began a musical exploration of his religious faith that would inspire many of his serious compositions. Johannes Brahms experienced his own crisis while composing his monumental First Symphony – that of escaping the shadow of Beethoven. Experience how these struggles gave way to two modern classics with Tito Muñoz and The Phoenix Symphony.
