The band’s line-up includes band leader Bill Temple on vocals, Rich Meijer and Al Romero on guitar, Dave Clark on bass, and Jimmy Brewer on drums. Tupelo continues their ‘Weekend of Giving’ by donating $5.00 of every ticket sold from their upcoming shows: Leo Kottke 9/9, Renaissance 9/10, and Ellis Paul 9/11 to local families in need of assistance from the devastation of Hurricane Irene. ‘Tupelo is grateful for the warm welcome we’ve received in the community in our first year, and since we are a part of the community, it’s only natural to help when our neighbors are in need,’ said Scott Hayward, owner of Tupelo Music Hall.  ‘I’m thrilled that Tupelo wanted to work with the Chamber to help coordinate this wonderful event to benefit our community.

first_imgBy Dialogo August 03, 2011 Mexican President Felipe Calderón affirmed on 1 August that the official visit to his country by his Colombian counterpart, Juan Manuel Santos, served – among other things – to reaffirm that the two countries are united in the fight against transnational organized crime. “President Santos and I ratified our commitment to continue uniting our efforts against transnational organized-crime groups, which threaten our societies and which represent one of the greatest challenges to regional democracy,” President Calderón indicated. Along those lines, he affirmed that mechanisms for cooperation between the two countries are going to continue to be strengthened, especially the exchange of strategic information. “Today, we ratified the fact that Colombia and Mexico are more united than ever in the fight against transnational organized crime and are also ready to cooperate with third countries in the region, our brother countries in Central America in particular, to combat this plague,” the Mexican head of state stressed. During Juan Manuel Santos’s official visit to Mexico, three bilateral agreements were signed, with the objective of strengthening law-enforcement cooperation between the two countries and increasing their capacity to act against transnational organized crime more powerfully and effectively.last_img read more
