Event begins at 2:30 PM
Musical artists The LoBros first full length album is now available on i-tunes, directly through www.TheLoBros.com, and will be showcased on November 2nd at their Album Release Concert at the Sea of Glass Center for the Arts 330 E. 7th St. at 2:30pm. Advance tickets are $15 and are available through their website.

The Lopez brothers (Salvador and Christian), affectionately known as The LoBros, defy the usual musical categories, expertly combining classical, Latin, jazz, funk and blues to create a uniquely original musical experience. Both classically trained with Master's in Trombone performance, and backed by an ensemble of professional musicians The LoBros are not your ordinary band of part time or hobby musicians. "Our vision for The LoBros is to break the usual bonds of musical categories, creating a new perspective on classical styles and putting on a great show for our fans", says bandleader and older brother Salvador. "It's about preserving a beautiful art form in a new and exciting way", adds Christian. Whatever their inspiration it seems to be working: although officially only 18 months old the band has already played at many local venues and events to increasing popularity and a growing fan base. With its hot, sophisticated sound, The LoBros debut album is bound to please existing fans and gain an army of new followers

Composed, arranged, produced, and performed by the Lopez brothers along with a crack team of professional musicians, The LoBros self-titled album is a tour de force. The LoBros set themselves apart by drawing from their musically eclectic background; from their multiple degrees in classical music performance to the Latin rhythms that thrive in their home state of Arizona and everything in between. The album does its share of genre hopping, showcasing everything from funk, salsa, bachata, cha-cha, samba, jazz, rock, video game, to straight-ahead classical! Featuring melodies and harmonies that were inspired from some of classical music’s greatest masters, including Mozart, Schubert, Beethoven, Vivaldi, Chopin, and Brahms. The unique synergy of this horn led band is sure to get you moving!

The LoBros band is built around the two musically gifted Lopez brothers. A recent graduate of Northwestern University with his Master's degree in Bass Trombone Performance, Christian, has received many accolades including recently being recognized as one of the top bass trombone players of his generation as a finalist in an International Trombone Competition. Bandleader and older brother Salvador received his Master's degree in Tenor Trombone Performance at the University of Arizona, and has performed throughout Europe, China and N. America. The brothers pull from their range and experience as professional musicians, trained to play many different styles of music, to give their own compositions unexpected and exciting new combinations and color. Combined, the Lopez brothers' talent is exceptional and will only grow as they continue to create new musical experiences for their fans to enjoy.

Locally, The LoBros have been featured at 2nd Saturday Downtown, The Zoo Lights, SAABA events, Rex Allen Days and at private showcases and parties. The LoBros are available for indoor and outdoor events and with their crossover style music they appeal to a wide variety of fans, making them a crowd favorite. Remember: The band will be hosting their Album Release Concert at the Sea of Glass Center for the Arts 330 E. 7th St on Sunday November 2, 2014 at 2:30pm, advance tickets are $15 and are available atwww.TheLoBros.com .

Film - Charles Bradley: Soul of America
The Sea of Glass Performance Hall
November 7, 2014
Event begins at 7:00 PM
Starting off on his 62nd birthday, Charles Bradley: Soul of America follows the extraordinary journey of singer Charles Bradley during the electrifying and transformative months leading up to the release of his debut album "No Time for Dreaming." The 74-minute documentary feature premiered at South By Southwest in Austin and went on to play top film festivals around the world including Hot Docs, Best of Hot Docs (Vancouver), Silverdocs, Munich International Film Festival, Montreal International Documentary Festival, Seattle International Film Festival, Melbourne International Film Festival, Milwaukee Film Festival, Woodstock Film Festival and Bonnaroo. The film won a Special Jury Award at Chicago International Music and Movies Festival and continues its festival run at IDFA, CPH:DOX, Leeds and Vienna this fall.

Despite being abandoned as a child, a period of homelessness, the devastating loss of his brother and constant poverty, Charles never gave up on his life-long dream to be a professional singer. With the help of producer and Grammy-winner Gabriel Roth (Daptone Records) and musician and label owner Tommy Brenneck (Dunham Records), Charles moved away from the James Brown covers he'd been performing for nearly half a century and focused on finding his own unique voice.

Earning himself an opening spot on tour for Sharon Jones, the biggest artist in the Daptone stable, Charles delivered the most impassioned performances of his life. Coming up during one of the worst economic downturns in history, Charles' heartfelt songs about tragedy, the downfall of the American dream, and hope for a better world resonated with audiences and the impossible dream he chased for 48 years started to become a reality. But, while experiencing his first taste of success, Charles couldn't escape the adversity that had followed him since birth. When the oppressive mortgage on his 87-year-old mother's house threatened to cost him everything, Charles hit a new low.

And then, following his sold out album release show, Charles' life changed completely. Championed by critics and fans alike, "No Time For Dreaming" became one of the most incredible success stories of the year, landing on Rolling Stone magazine's top 50 albums of 2011 and catapulting Charles to over 110 performances in 17 countries on 3 continents over the next year alone. In addition, Bradley picked up coveted gigs at top festivals like ACL and Bonnaroo and lit up television via spots on Jay Leno and Carson Daly. while his music video scored over 2 million hits online and played in rotation on VH1.

Following this unprecedented success, Charles' star has continued to rise. He tours the world year-round to growing crowds, pouring his soul out at each show as if it's his last and stepping off stage to give out teary-eyed hugs and acknowledge the miracle of the journey that Spin calls "…utterly amazing."

Film - Edgar Cayce, The Beautiful Dreamer (November)
The Sea of Glass Performance Hall
November 21, 2014
Event begins at 7:00 PM
Edgar Cayce (1877 - 1945), was dubbed "the Sleeping Prophet" and "the Father of Holistic Medicine" because he was able to bring forth incredible healing information from a deep, self-induced trance. All he needed was to be given the subject to be discussed, or the inquiring person's name, address, and whereabouts, by a conductor to make suggestions and ask the questions, and a stenographer to take it all down. Almost every day for forty-two years he had out-of-body journeys in order to answer questions covering an immense range of subject matter. He could do this at any time, any place.

Persons from all walks of life came to him for help or advice. Among them was a movie producer, an actress, a top steel magnate, a U.S. Senator, a Vice-President of the United States; parents, the sick, the lame, the disturbed. His extraordinary trances also gave in-depth information and guidance on our relationship to God, past lives, the laws of cause and effect, the idea and ideals of an Atlantis, and the history and future of humankind and the universe. He also made numerous prophecies that are just now beginning to prove true.

Rebecca’s versatility has allowed her many unique opportunities to perform, to name a few:

Jesse Jackson and his guests at the 2009 Rainbow PUSH Coalition event, for Drew Brees and Marshall Faulk at their Celebrity Golf Tournaments, as well as private events for Michigan State’s Basketball coach Tom Izzo, NFL Charger Antonio Gates, Jenny Craig, and the USA Women’s Soccer team; She has done multiple concerts at Spaghettini’s, the Baked Potato, and the House of Blues (San Diego, Anaheim, Boston, Las Vegas); She has performed the National Anthem for many professional and collegiate athletic organizations; She’s entertained patrons at the San Diego Symphony; She also manages and is lead singer in her own R&B, soul, blues and funk variety band, called The Soultones (www.theSoultonesLive.com)~

She’s sung demos and background vocals on many different projects, including a recent project featuring Sly Stone (of Sly and the Family Stone) and songs for a catalog with Todd Carlon, pianist for Paul Anka. She released her debut original music project, The Jade Element and opened for Grammy-nominated musical artist, Musiq Soulchild. She has also just released her sophomore album, Rebecca Jade and the Cold Fact.

Presented by "Movies That Matter"

Cost - $10

The film features scientists, researchers, writers and doctors, as well as remarkable true stories of people adding mind body medicine to their healing toolkit to recover from severe back pain, heart disease, infertility, cancer and multiple sclerosis. While the science is complex, the solutions for people suffering with illness are astonishingly simple. The film shows that we can counter the harmful affects of stress with an equally powerful relaxation response triggered through specific techniques such as meditation. It shows that emotions can impact the course of an illness for better or for worse and could even be the difference between life and death. The film explains the mechanisms behind belief, which scientists now know contributes 30 to 50 percent of the effect of any known biological cure and explores how scientists at the cutting edge are now learning that the mind can even influence the expression of genes and the rate at which we age.
“We have more say in our own health than even our doctors.”
Jon Kabat Zinn, Ph.D.
Founder of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction

This is a film for people who have tried everything. It offers answers and proves that you can change your mind, change your health and change your life.
