And the Band Played On The movie, And the Band Played On, discusses the origin of the AIDS virus and how it spontaneously spread across the world. It used the Ebola disease to foreshadow the forth coming of another serious disease. The world was not prepared to handle such a contagious plague. Doctors around the world assumed that the first cases of the HIV virus to be just an abnormality of a certain disease, their carelessness of this matter was the start to the spread of this disease. Throughout this movie, it illustrates different points, such as the beginning of HIV, the misconceptions it gave, and the panic it aroused amongst doctors and the common people.

Every day millions of Americans turn on their radios, IPods, or some other device which allows them to listen to their favorite musicians and have no idea that there is a union standing guard to ensure the rights of those very musicians. The average American may think their favorite musicians are rolling “dough” and not realize that for the past hundred and fourteen years the American Federation of Musicians, aka AFM, has worked to improve the professional lives of musicians across North America. (American Federation of Musicians, 2010) AFM attracts its members with a mission to unite professional musicians which states, “We can live and work in dignity; Our work will be fulfilling and compensated fairly; We will have a meaningful voice

This week I visited the Redlands Bowl, down on 25 Grant St. The Redlands Bowl is an amphitheater that is used for both musical and theatrical performances that are free of charge to the public.

The W.C. Handy music festival is an event in which almost the entire northwest side of Alabama celebrates the past heritage of Shoals area music, and also the future of Shoals music for an entire week. Muscle Shoals National Heritage Area (2016) states that the festival involves over 200 events within the range of four counties and attracts about 150,000 people to the shoals area, providing a significant boost for local businesses and artists. The music around the Shoals area has long tied the community together and provided the cities in it with a distinct characteristic of producing music that is known in far-reaching places. With a music tradition as rich as the Shoals, it cannot help but play a significant role in the community for as long

On June 25th through the 27th, my family and I went to King’s Island for our vacation. We just took a small vacation this year because next spring we are going to Florida. But this wasn’t the typical amusement park trip. Those three days at King’s Island, Spirit Song Fest was there. Since we bought tickets to Spirit Song Fest, we got free admission to the amusement park and water park. Spirit Song Fest is an annual three day long Christian music festival. We did all the amusement park stuff during the day, and then we made our way to the outdoor amphitheater around 4:00 to browse Christian artist merchandise and find our seats. The concerts were epic. Some of my favorite Contemporary Christian music artists were there, such as Newsboys, Colton Dixon, Kari Jobe, Skillet,
