No more Apologies In view of the senseless, brutal murder of an unarmed black man in South Carolina last week by a police officer following a traffic stop for a broken taillight, we must revisit Thomas Kachadurian’s recent column.

What Is Your Experience To Lead? I listened to Marco Rubio’s announcement of his running for the presidency. Many have admired his speech. He said a lot of the right things

Hometown Heros

- July 12th, 2010
Hometown heroes return with Brent James
Three of Traverse City’s top players make a swing through town next
week, backing vocalist/guitarist Brent James as members of the
ContraBand.
Bassist Jason Kott, drummer Matt Hayes and guitarist Josh Mitchell,
all veterans of a number of TC bands, joined the Nashville-based act
at its inception in 2009.
Band leader Brent James also has roots in Northern Michigan:
originally from Saginaw, he lived for a time in Lake City and served
as the lead singer for Kenny Olson’s band, The Flask. Second
guitarist Mike P hails from Detroit.
As a songwriter, James cites influences including Joe Cocker, Bruce
Springsteen and Bob Dylan,. The band is hitching its star to a new
acoustic rock tune, “Moment of Silence,” with their debut album also
in the works.
The band has opened for Papa Roach, Stone Temple Pilots, O.A.R. and
other major acts and is performing at festivals across the eastern
U.S. this summer. They’ll make a swing through Traverse City on
Monday, July 19 for a 10 p.m. performance at Union Street Station.
