Reminder – Shredding Day Friday, March 4

Just a reminder that Shred 360 will be at the Town Hall this Friday, March 4 from 10 am until 1 pm in the contractor parking lot.

You can bring paper trash, computer disks and drives as well as old tax returns to be shredded. Paper may be brought to the site in cardboard boxes, but they are not able to shred the actual box.

This is the free Shred Day that enables Seabrookers to safely destroy any of these items. Shredding items is one way to protect yourself from Identity Fraud.

The next Shredding Day will be on October 14, 2016

George Winston grew up mainly in Montana, and also spent his later formative years in Mississippi and Florida. During this time, his favorite music was instrumental rock and instrumental R&B, including Floyd Cramer, the Ventures, Booker T & The MG’s, Jimmy Smith, and many more. Inspired by R&B, jazz, Blues and rock (especially the Doors), George began playing organ in 1967. In 1971 he switched to the acoustic piano after hearing recordings from the 1920s and the 1930s by the legendary stride pianists Thomas “Fats” Waller and the late Teddy Wilson. In addition to working on stride piano, he also at this time came up with his own style of melodic instrumental music on solo piano, called folk piano.

SIPOA Planning Committee – February 2016 Minutes

Chairman Kortvelesy informed the Planning Committee (PC) that the Focus for the Year would be “Make Seabrook the Best It Can Possibly Be”. Success with this should have a positive impact on property values and visitors to the island.

In the March meeting, the PC will review the 2015 SIPOA Committees Final Reports and compare to the approved Strategic Plan for 2016.

In the Annual meeting some of the “take aways” were the continued challenges with aging housing that is not maintained or upgraded. This includes both single family homes and villas. The property owners need to ask themselves if their property would be considered marketable if they listed to sell. The PC should identify resources to help property owners.

Charleston Music Hall – Boney James – August 19th

BoneyJamesThe Jazz Diva Presents An Evening With:
Boney James
Friday, August 19th at the Charleston Music Hall
Doors Open: 7:00PM                 Show Starts: 8:00PM
Tickets On Sale Now!
More Information | Buy Tickets

Boney James dislikes labels and refuses any and all of them. “In fact, I have never thought of myself as a ‘jazz’ artist specifically,” he says.

Of course, this statement may serve as a source of confusion for the musician’s legion of fans that have scooped up over 3 million copies of his twelve albums (with eight of them going to No. 1 on the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Chart). It also may seem contradictory to the respected opinions of music critics who consider him one of the most influential jazz artists of his generation. In 2010 Billboard Magazine named him “The No. 3 Top Contemporary Jazz Artist of the Decade.”

Even so, Boney James, who has four Gold albums, three Grammy® nominations, a Soul Train Award and an NAACP Award nomination to his credit, says, “I am just a saxophone player whose music has several different influences. Jazz is only one of them.”

This incredibly accomplished artist — who broke into music in the mid-80s touring with acts such as The Isley Brothers, Morris Day (The Time), Randy Crawford and Teena Marie, and emerged as a solo force in 1992 with his breakthrough debut, Trust — has long been influenced by contemporary R&B.
