LAPD Officer Deon JosephJoseph, 40, of Los Angeles, Calif., is a Senior Lead Officer for the Los Angeles Police Department. With 17 years of experience at the LAPD, Joseph has spent the past 14 serving as a liaison between the LAPD and the people who make up the community in the Central City East area of downtown LA, commonly referred to as Skid Row. Joseph has assisted over 150 homeless citizens and has launched a hygiene initiative to help aide those still on the streets. Additionally, he has created programs including ‘Just Like You,’ which mentors the youth of Skid Row to become more than a product of their environment and ‘Ladies Night,’ a program that has reached over 800 women, which teaches self-defense and encourages them to report acts of violence. As part of his commitment to the community and dedication to creating an environment conducive to change, Joseph recently aided in removing 80 drug dealers from the streets of Southern California. If he receives the grand prize, Joseph says, “not only would it put a smile on my face, but I would be able to show my father how he raised me has allowed me to do incredible things. This would be more for him than for me, to thank him for being my hero.” | Click here to vote Select a story below to learn more about these heroes who REIGN ON. Vote for the hero you’d like to honor with naming rights to the Brickyard 400. Voting is allowed once per day and ends June 9. American Widow Project Founder Taryn DavisDavis, 27, of San Marcos, Texas, is founder and executive director of the American Widow Project. Davis was nominated by a friend for her support and encouragement for women and men who have lost loved ones through military combat and non-combat. At the age of 21, she lost her husband of just over a year during his deployment in Iraq, leaving Davis to go on living her life without him. After months of grieving, she contacted other military widows and widowers to learn how they continued living their lives while honoring their husbands’ or wives’ legacies. This began what is now the American Widow Project, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2007 to provide military widows support by empowering, inspiring and assisting in rebuilding their lives in the face of tragedy through their peer-to-peer and educational programs. Since its founding, Davis and her team have supported more than 1,500 widows on their journeys to carry on the legacy of those they love and reclaim their own lives. Excited to share her first NASCAR experience in Indianapolis with the thousands of military widows across the country, Davis views this nomination as a true honor. | Click here to vote Gunnery Sergeant Samuel DeedsDeeds, 35, of Independence, Ky., is a retired Marine whose selfless actions saved the lives of many fellow Marines in Iraq. During his deployment in 2005, Deeds came across an improvised explosive device (IED) while setting up a vehicle checkpoint on Khandari Market Road near Abu Ghraib Prison. When he saw two of his fellow Marines approaching the area, Deeds exposed himself to the IED to warn them of danger. He was severely injured by the blast, undergoing 30-plus surgeries and procedures since then, and has received awards which include a Navy and Marine Corps Medal, Purple Heart, two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals, Combat Action Ribbon and Military Outstanding Volunteer Service Medal. In 2008, Deeds’ heroic instinct again kicked in when his actions saved the lives of three individuals who were caught in a rip tide off the shore of North Carolina. Deeds has been a NASCAR fan his whole life and, when he was younger, dreamed of someday working in the sport. He enjoys sharing his passion for NASCAR with his sons, two-year-old Myles and six-year-old, Micah, who goes to every race with Deeds. He is excited to experience the race weekend in Indianapolis with his wife, April, who he calls his hero for staying by his side throughout everything, and is most looking forward to taking in the rich history of the track. Deeds’ grandfather used to tell him stories about his first race, the Indianapolis 500, so to have his name on that venue would mean the world to him. | Click here to vote Deputy Marshal Stephen BradyBrady, 48, of Pleasant Lake, Ind., has humbly served the state as an EMT, firefighter and police dispatcher and is currently a deputy marshal of the Waterloo Police Department. In December 2011, while responding to an early morning call about a couple in need of help, Brady spotted a man and woman walking and called out to them. As he was standing next to his patrol car trying to converse with the couple, the man pulled out a gun and shot Brady in the face. The bullet entered the left side of his face between his eye and ear, it and exited behind his right ear. After miraculously surviving the gunshot wound, Brady was back on the streets serving his community just 11 months later and received a Purple Heart from the Police Officers Hall of Fame. Brady says of the program, “Just to be affiliated is a prestigious honor,” and looks forward to attending his home state’s NASCAR race. | Click here to vote Vote for a deserving hero Firefighter & EMT Kenneth KurthKurth, 26, of Debary, Fla., is a firefighter and paramedic for the Kissimmee Fire Department. An avid NASCAR fan, Kurth works as an EMT for every race held at Daytona International Speedway and was one of the first medical responders to report to the scene of the crash that took place at the end of the NASCAR Nationwide Series Race on February 23, 2013. After crawling through the wrecked fence, Kurth began initiating patient care by identifying those who were injured in the grandstands, assessing their needs and helping to transport them to nearby medical facilities. During his childhood, Kurth visited the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Museum with his grandfather, who he considers his hero and looks forward to returning to the famed track in his honor. | Click here to vote
Just last weekend, a video of Sammy Hagar joining Dead & Company at a rehearsal session circulated from an Oteil Burbridge social media post. It seems the session wasn’t just the meeting of old friends (Hagar and Bob Weir are neighbors and buddies), but an actual practice for tonight’s show.Last week, Dead & Company announced a surprise free performance at The Fillmore in San Francisco, CA, scheduled for tonight (May 23rd). Conveniently, the show will be held in the Bay Area, right near where Weir and Hagar live.Last night, Hagar posted on his personal website saying that he was invited to sit-in at the free show. He writes:Tonight, Monday May 23rd, Dead & Company will be playing a free concert at The Fillmore and a few days ago Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Bill Kreutzmann invited me to come down to rehearsal.We played a few songs together and they asked me to sit in at the show, which is gonna be a blast! I’ll sing a song or two (probably including Loose Lucy) and this is going to be big!!Who is coming to the Dead show? Redhead Dead Heads represent!The show is set to start around 8 PM Pacific time, and there’s been quite the demand for tickets in the area. Have fun out there!
Later this month, the Boston-based jamtronica band Wobblesauce will be joined by a series of very special guest drummers! After releasing two new singles earlier this year, “Highway Hypnosis” and “Grawlix”, the band kicks off the release of the next two tracks off their upcoming “Obstacle Illusions: Part 1” EP with a hometown throw-down and very special “Wobble Wednesday” event at Brighton Music Hall on July 20th.For that July 20th show, as well as at F.A.R.M Fest in New Jersey on July 23rd, Mike Greenfield (drummer for such notable bands as Lotus, Electron, and Conspirator) will be playing with Wobblesauce – which oddly enough will make bassist Jake Boynton the only performer on stage not named Mike!For the other shows on the run, Dan Lyons of Horizon Wireless will be joining the band on stage on Thursday, July 21st in New Haven, CT at Pacific Standard Tavern, and Scotty Zwang of Dopapod will be joining them on July 24th in Brooklyn, NY at The Knitting Factory.Don’t miss out!

One of the best groups to emerge out of the extended Grateful Dead family is the Golden Gate Wingmen, a bona fide super group that includes Dead & Company keyboardist Jeff Chimenti, Billy & The Kids bassist Reed Mathis, Furthur/Primus drummer Jay Lane, and Furthur guitarist John Kadlecik. The band certainly gets their influence from the Grateful Dead – including its San Francisco themed band name – but continue to spread their wings and perform a rich tapestry of music.On their East Coast August tour, the band hit The Hamilton in Washington, DC last night. Thanks to the venue, we have a full video from the performance to share.

Live For Live Music: So, this has been a pretty crazy week for you right, with your meme blowing up? Michal Krauthamer: Yeah, it’s been crazy.L4LM: How did you come up with the idea for Trump Queen? And when did you first start producing these guys? Since then, can you walk us through the timeline from then up to now?MK: I started working on Trump Queen in March, one day while practicing my Photoshop skills. I’m not sure where the idea came from. But, I did one and it was just too funny, so I decided to make another one. And then another. And then another. Eventually, I had so many that I decided to post them on Facebook and Instagram to share with friends.L4LM: Evidently, you’ve been making these images for a while, and it seems like it was never your intention to share them widely with the world, as it was your friend who posted them to Imgur originally, which caused it to go viral. Can you talk about the motivation for making these guys before you started disseminating them widely?MK: I actually did want to share them, I’m just really bad at the internet. Luckily, my friend Avi Jacobs knew what he was doing and posted it on Imgur at the right time, and it just took off.L4LM: Before you publicly came forward, did you ever see headlines like the one from the Huffington Post, which read “Someone Keeps Face Swapping Donald Trump and the British Queen,” and if so, how weird is that to be the anonymous “someone” in the news? And building off that, how does it feel to be the person behind a viral sensation?MK: Definitely. These kind of things are all over the Internet. I can’t believe I’m one of them now. It’s just surreal. It hasn’t even sunk in yet.L4LM: So you’re the keyboardist for the up-and-coming jam band, PandaJAM, which is ultimately what brings us together today. Can you talk a little bit about that project?MK: We’re a five-piece band from northern New Jersey, and we’ve been playing together for about 3 years. We like to describe our sound as that of the jamtronifunk variety. Besides me, the band includes Dan Morrell (guitar), Willie Kunstadter (guitar), Alzie Sisco (drums), and Andy Stanish (bass).L4LM: I assume your bandmates know about Trump Queen; what do they think of it?MK: They love it! They’ve been really supportive. We are all involved in side projects and are all very supportive of one another. Our guitarist, Dan Morell, just recently released an awesome app called Lewd Q’s with the help of our bassist, Andrew Stanish, who did the developing. I’ve also been very fortunate that our amazing band manager, Catherine Sisco of Storm Sisco Entertainment, has been helping me handle all of the TrumpQueen social media and PR this past week.L4LM: For people who are unfamiliar with PandaJAM, can you talk a little bit about what you’re going for musically and maybe call out a few tracks that you feel epitomize your sound?MK: We really enjoy experimenting with different styles. “The Couch Approves” is an excellent example of a track that epitomizes our sound. However, we’ve been experimenting more with a fusion of dance and funk lately, so tracks like “Getaway Murphy,” “Phife and Ice,” and “Devil’s Lettuce” are good examples of what we’re moving towards in the future.Listen to out PandaJAM’s lay down some of these track during their show back in October of this year at American Beauty in New York, NY, courtesy of the band.L4LM: Maybe let’s also do this in face swap terms: what would you say are two bands that if they got jumbled up a bit would kinda describe PandaJAM’s sound?MK: Oh boy, that’s a tough one. But, I would have to say the Disco Biscuits and Umphrey’s.L4LM: You guys were born out of a weekly jam session. Since then and solidifying more as a formal band, can you talk about some of your favorite performances together?MK: We’ve really been lucky and shared the stage/bill with some great bands this past year. I’d have to say some of my favorite shows have been Magic Beans at Black Bear, Haley Jane & Tigerman at Mexicali, DiscJam, and the silent disco at Hulavom.L4LM: Speaking of shows, we heard you were keeping the late-night cabin jams raging at Catskill Chill. Can you discuss that a little?MK: Yeah, that’s the highlight of my summer! We took a page out of the book of our buddies Shwizz and Fikus and decided to set our equipment in the cabin and throw a party. The turnout was fantastic. This year was especially awesome because we teamed up with our good friends Tigerman (also an NNJ-based band) and had a blast playing all weekend late into the night. We were lucky to have some friends stop in and jam with us including members from Les Special, the Werks, Magic Beans, American Babies, Indobox, and others. We’re definitely looking forward to raging the cabins at Catskill Chill 2017!L4LM: Your Instagram account says ““It’s not about politics. It’s about the magic of Photoshop and making you laugh,” but your use of hashtags such as #donaldtrumpisanidiot, #antitrump, and #trumpsucks indicate a fairly political stance. Do you view Trump Queen as being political?MK: As I said, I’m terrible at the internet. When I first made the account, I used popular anti-trump hashtags to get a broader reach, but I had no idea what I was doing. Now, people from both sides of the aisle find it hilarious, and I want to keep it that way! I’m happy that Trump Queen is making everyone laugh, because, let’s face it, America has been in need of good laugh for quite some time.L4LM:Alright, last one. Can you list a few of your favorite musicians?MK: I have pretty eclectic taste in music, I’ll really listen to anything. Lately, I’ve been listening to Lindsey Sterling, and according to my bandmates, it shows. I’ve been really inspired by all the great live music in the scene. There’s so much talent out there, and it’s a really good time for live music.L4LM: So, what’s next for you? Both, in terms of PandaJAM and for Trump Queen?MK: I’m really hoping that TrumpQueen’s popularity will open some exciting new doors and offer new creative opportunities for me. The most exciting thing about all of this has been getting recognition for something that I really love to do. As far as PandaJAM goes, we’re working on new material, and you can definitely expect to see us on the road and at festivals this coming year.Make sure to keep an eye out for Michal, Trump Queen, and PandaJAM, as they’re all on the up-and-up. For more information about PandaJAM, peep the band’s website here. You can also catch on 12/27 at Mexicali Live (NJ) or on 1/14 at Arlene’s Grocery (NYC) supporting Annie In The Water. Recently, you may have seen #trumpqueen floating around your newsfeed paired with hilarious, bizarre, and sometimes disarming photos of the Queen of England’s body headed with the face of Donald Trump. The meme, which began to go viral this week, has had millions of shares across the world and continues to be picked up and spread by sites across the web. Response to the face swaps of our new president-elect and Queen Elizabeth II tends to oscillate between delight and slight horror, sometimes feeling both simultaneously, though people obviously want to keep coming back for more. At the beginning of the week, the Instagram account which first unleashed this Frankenstein of political leaders on the world, @ogtrumpqueen on Instagram, had about 50 followers, which is now up to 18.5k followers and counting.It turns out that the madwoman who created this sensation, Michal Krauthamer, a graphic designer residing in Bergen County, New Jersey, also throws it down on keys for the up-and-coming jam band PandaJAM. The five-piece ensemble self-describes itself as “an eclectic blend of rock, dance, funk, and improvisational craziness that peaks like the Himalayas,” and has supported acts like The Magic Beans, Hayley Jane & The Primates, and Flux Capacitor. So we decided to sit down with Michal to talk about the wild rise of #trumpqueen and what’s good with her band, which can be found below a few of our favorite photoshop creations of hers.
Members Of Stringdusters, Greensky, Salmon, & More Perform As Bluegrass Generals In Denver [Audio/Videos]
The Bluegrass Generals, a bluegrass supergroup hosted by Infamous Stringdusters Andy Hall and Chris Pandolfi, features a revolving cast of the genre’s best and brightest stars from show to show. This weekend, the Generals played a two-night run at Denver, CO’s Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom with Greensky Bluegrass’ Paul Hoffman, John Stickley of the John Stickley Trio, and Greg Garrison of Leftover Salmon, for what turned out to one hell of a throwdown.This “Winter String Fling” also featured performances from the likes of Gipsy Moon, the Sweet Lillies, and the Last Revel, as the venue opened up The Other Side to accommodate a packed out crowd. Coming out of Nederland, CO, Gipsy Moon’s set featured a sit-in from Leftover Salmon’s Andy Thorn for a tasty jam, along with the group featuring some new, old-world traditional music from their forthcoming album. The Sweet Lillies out of Boulder, CO put together a strong set on The Other Side, which featured another sit-in from Thorn (which seemed to be the theme of the night), and kept the vibe going throughout the venue.The Bluegrass Generals put on a two-set performance that saw the group locked in from the start, with a set opening cover of Norman Blake‘s “Ginseng Sullivan,” followed by the Stringdusters’ own “No More to Leave You Behind.” “Fixin’ To Ruin” saw a nice mandolin jam between Hoffman and Gipsy Moon’s Silas Hermann, and a sing along ensued with the Greensky member taking the vocals on a cover of Bob Marley‘s “Could You Be Loved.” The oft-covered traditional bluegrass number “Deep Elem Blues” made an appearance in what was a strong first set, which ended with a cover of Greensky’s “Burn Them.”After a brief set break, the Generals came back out to the front lines firing with the rest of the infantry, and played a monster second set which featured the Stanley Brothers classic “How Mountain Girls Can Love,” sit-ins from Andy Goessling on tenor sax on “Hillbillies,” “All That I Can Take,” and “Flight of the Turban,” the latter two which saw a guest spot from….you guessed it, Mr. Andy Thorn himself. Bruce Springsteen‘s “Atlantic City” was clearly a crowd favorite, as there wasn’t a silent voice in Cervantes. “Not Fade Away” brought a proper ending to the evening, as those in attendance walked out of the warm venue into the chill of the Denver night.Thanks to taper Rob OBrien, you can enjoy the show’s audio below:The Bluegrass Generals – Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom – Denver, CO – 1/6/17 SetlistSet 1:Ginseng Sullivan, No More To Leave You Behind, Dellas Walk, Fixin’ To Ruin*, Could You Be Loved, Deep Ellum Blues, Angeline, Saro Jane, I Wonder Where You Are Tonight, Burn ThemSet 2:The Four, How Mountain Girls Can Love, Hillbillies**, All That I Can [email protected], Flight Of The [email protected], Blue Ridge Mountain Home, High Country Funk, Merely Avoiding, 99 Years, Atlantic City, Whitehouse BluesEncore:Not Fade AwayNotes:– * w/Silas Herman on Mandolin– ** w/Andy Goessling on Tenor Saxophone– @ w/Andy Goessling on Tenor Saxaphone and Andy Thorn on Banjo[Photo by ontheDL Photography on The Bluegrass Generals Facebook]

It’s business time! It looks like New Zealand musical comedy duo Flight Of The Conchords has a new special in the works for 2018. New Zealand natives Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement–better known as Flight Of The Conchords–developed a worldwide cult following after their BBC radio series was turned into a TV show by HBO in 2007, showcasing their unassuming yet hilarious blend of music and comedy. The series (also called Flight of the Conchords) ran for two seasons and was nominated for several Emmys, in both songwriting and overall comedic categories. After a relatively quiet few years, the group returned in 2016, announcing an extensive summer tour that marked their first U.S. shows since 2013.Flight Of The Conchords Land Big Laughs At Forest Hills Stadium Debut [Review]In a recent one-on-one interview with Entertainment Tonight‘s Leanne Aquilera, Clement somewhat cryptically revealed som Conchords plans in motion for this new year. “We’d do something,” he replied when asked if a Flight of the Conchords reboot was in the works. “We’re going to film a little something this year…We’re going to shoot an hour thing,”In the interview, Jemaine was coy about whether HBO was involved in the project, and joked that he wouldn’t discuss what musical numbers he was working on. “Something,” Clement told ET, shutting down questions about specifics. “That’s it.”Clement and McKenzie’s first Flight of the Conchords U.K. tour in seven years kicks off in March, however, featuring all the classics from their show, as well as new material. Currently, Clement is starring in Legion on FX, which returns for its second season on March 15th. We couldn’t be more excited for some (potentially) new Flight of the Conchords in 2018!Watch Clement and McKenzie perform “Jenny”, a story of a hilariously awkward encounter in the park, below via YouTube user asianscion:[Cover photo – Mark Dershowitz, from Forest Hills Stadium 7/20/16][h/t – Entertainment Tonight]
