Hungry for Music Notes - Spring/Summer 2015

We have so much information for our latest newsletter we’ve decided to split it into two separate editions! This edition will feature EVENTS which will include recaps of past HFM events, including the 20th Hungry for Crawfish; and info on upcoming attractions like the DOAH Fest and the Summer Hoot. The soon-to-follow second edition will feature Hungry for Music’s latest outreach stories and information.

HFM Presents Documentary on New Orleans Marching Bands

Hungry for Music presented a powerful documentary to an appreciative crowd on Wednesday, May 20, at the Rosendale Theatre. Titled "The Whole Gritty City," the film follows three New Orleans marching bands as they prepare for the upcoming Mardi Gras parade season.

The film’s director, producer, and editor Richard Barber provided an informative Q&A session after the film. The documentary will be shown to Ulster County middle and high school students in the Fall.

Nathan & the Zydeco Cha Chas Rock 20th Hungry for Crawfish

Nathan & the Zydeco Cha Chas provided a special touch to the 20th Hungry for Crawfish boil held on May 21 at Ft. Hunt Park. As promised, Nathan rocked the Ft. Hunt pavilion, leaving crawfish lovers wanting more. By the end of his second set, Nathan and his fabulous band had everyone on their feet, including many patrons on stage with them. It was a memorable and fun-filled day that we hope to continue recreating in the future.

Many thanks to the Hungry for Crawfish crew who collectively made it all happen, including Hank (thank for keeping the cooking crew in line!), Lucy, Maggie, and Ella Arrington, Ben (thanks for getting the park)& Janet Lawson, Dan & Jennifer Weiss (thank you for coordinating volunteers!), Richard & Teresa Lynch, Chuck & Ann Ray (thanks for the awesome signage!), Michael Sutherland (thanks for bringing the young muscle and showing the older guys a different perspective on how things can get done!), Laura Burns (thanks for the beer aprons!), George & Laura May, Jon Resnick, Sarah Comis, Preston Evers (thank you for crunching those numbers!), David Sedlack, and Bruce Sedlack.

Shout out to Zachary Burrows and Scott Raughton (and Braxton) for their help in making Nathan and his band sound superb!

HFM Ambassadors Plays Two Shows in Hudson Valley

Hungry for Music ambassador’s Susan Cowsill and her drummer husband Russ Broussard recently played a series of shows in the Northeast, including two venues that are friends of Hungry for Music: OPUS 40 in Saugerties & Immune Schein Tea Haus in Rosendale. Susan enjoyed the experience of OPUS 40 so much that she donated a portion of her performance fee to its restoration project. We are grateful to Susan spreading her positive message and wonderful music.

OPUS 40 is a must see:

Non-Profit Night at Bethesda Big Train

For over fifteen years, Hungry for Music has been a part of Bethesda Big Train Non-profit Community Night. The Big Train is a part of the Summer Collegiate Baseball League and since 1999 their founder's goal has been to build a community through baseball. They have certainly succeeded, promoting hundreds of non-profits at their baseball games. Also, proceeds from the Big Train go to the upkeep of Montgomery County baseball parks. We are proud to be a part of the Big Train community. Check out a game soon! Click here for more info.


What is Doah Fest?

Doah Fest is a party, an opportunity to get away and relax, a chance to get in touch with nature, be exposed to new ideas, music and art, but above all, Doah Fest is a community that comes together for one extraordinary weekend. Hungry for Music is grateful to be involved for the third straight year. Mark your calendars: July 31 – August 3, Luray, VA.
