The DeadbeatsThe Deadbeats formed during the Summer of 1994 on the notion they could pull off some reasonable Grateful Dead covers.  Soon it was apparent the band was on to something, a certain indefinable sound and feel that really captures the essence of a Dead show.

Though band members have come and gone over the years, Tom, Paul, and Gary have remained the core of the band, providing a solid continuity to the Deadbeat sound.

 

AchillesWheel_printAchilles Wheel is a high energy Roots & World Music / Rock & Roll band, featuring award winning songwriting, numerous stringed instruments, and more drums than you can shake a stick at.  The fiery epicenter of the Achilles Wheel sound is Jonny Mojo on lead guitar and vocals, surrounded by Paul Kamm and Shelby Snow on rhythm, bass, and vocals, and Gary Campus and Mark McCartney on drums and vocals.

If you love to dance and celebrate life, come see Achilles Wheel and make a joyful noise.

On Friday, February 15, 2013, The Miners Foundry Cultural Center will host an Open House and Community Party at the historic venue to celebrate the new wooden floor in the Osborn/Woods Hall and recognize those that have contributed to make this major, yet necessary, facility upgrade a reality.

Attendees are welcomed and encouraged to stroll through the Foundry, taking in the historic artifacts, beautiful stone walls, hand hewn wood beams, and of course the new wood floor.  They can also watch and participate in yoga, swing, salsa, and dance demonstrations from local instructors and organizations.  And finish the evening dancing on the new floor with old and new friends to the music of the Deadbeats and other local acts who have donated their time and talents to the cause. Food and a full no-host bar also available.
