District 6
“California state old time fiddlers association.” Have planned a day of Fun, great bands, beautiful views, Food, local wines and craft beers. Something that the whole family can come and Enjoy together, Smiles, Laughter and Making Memories that Last!

This Festival event will be the Third Annual Bluegrass, Old Time & Americana Music & Art Event venue will be held at the Cedar Crest Vineyards in Manton CA. This is a day full of great bands, beautiful views, great food, local wines and craft beers; this family fun event is guaranteed to be about 10 degrees cooler than anything that is going on down in the valley. Come and enjoy the fun and help us support Old Time, Old Time Fiddling, Bluegrass and Traditional American Acoustic Music & Education in the North State.

 

*Band Line-up for the Day will be as follows*

 

*Wood & Wire: “It’s been five years now since Wood & Wire sprouted out of the fertile musical soil of Austin, Texas. In that time, they’ve written music, recorded albums, and performed at some of the most notable festivals and venues across the country.
In the often tightly defined genre of bluegrass music, Wood & Wire’s “band-style” ethos are not a mystery. Nor are the elements of song crafting, so often associated with their Texas home, that permeates their sound. That being said, what comes out of the Wood & Wire blender is something entirely its own.”

*One Button Suit:
One Button Suit is an exciting, Sacramento-based string band with a repertoire of originals and bluegrass familiars hinting at unconventionality.

Band members:
Tim Tobias – vocals, guitar
Tom Shewmake – mandolin, vocals
Melissa Lincoln – fiddle, vocals
Brian Burke – guitar, vocals
Casey Lipka – bass, vocals

*The Rock Ridge Bluegrass Band*
Rock Ridge is a bluegrass band from N. California. Their performances and recorded material include traditional & contemporary bluegrass, some originals, old time country, and gospel music with top notch vocals and instrumentation. The band’s debut CD, Drifter’s Prayer, has received praise and airplay across the US and abroad.

*The Buckhorn Mountain Stompers*
Foot stomping dance music from the Klamath Mountains.
The Buckhorn Mountain Stompers are an energetic dance band from the Klamath Mountains who pull from a variety of traditions, like alt-country, old-timey, polka, jazz, delta blues, – but maintain a unique sound of their own. Our goal is to perform fun dance songs that make people want to get up and strut their stuff. Our shows are hillbilly kitsch; with a disco light, fog machine, other theatric stage props and dance prizes.

*Honeybee jazz*
Sweet Violin and Guitar Jazz from the 1920’s & 30’s
Jazz music was born in America between world wars, an economic boom and a great depression, as an amalgamation of traditional American musical styles. The honeybee is a Northern California jazz duo that captures the sounds and feel of Vintage Jazz in its original vibe – with emphasis on lyrical melody, dynamic harmony, and smooth rhythm using sweet vocals, violin and guitar. Honeybee performs Vintage Jazz tunes in that authentic vintage style – the song is the star!

*The HappBees*
The “Sweethearts of the SMMAF” The HappBees will be back to steal your hearts away this year. These three little Dolls are sure to Pull at your Heartstrings as they play on their fiddles!

*Also Appearing:

*Honeybee Jazz

*The HappBees

*The Alldrin Family Band

*The Jim Cook Band

*Stormy Weather

DogTrekker.com

DogTrekker.com officially opened 10/2010
Why did you start this business?
“DogTrekker.com was launched as a collaborative effort by a team of dog lovers who wanted to share what they’ve learned during over 200 combined years of on-the-road and on-the-trails adventures. They were frustrated by the lack of local and accurate listings and engaging stories about where to go, stay, eat, hike, splash and have lots of safe and fun tail-wagging’ fun with their pups!”

What makes your business different than other Dog Businesses? Do you have a USP Unique Selling Proposition?

“We are different because we focus on the state of California to stay accurate. Dog-friendly books are outdated the day they are published, and those national and international dog-friendly websites have trouble staying current, local and fresh by trying to cover too much territory. All 8,000 California listings on DogTrekker.com are updated each year.”
Business owner Dave Kendrick Replied.

Where did you learn the business? Meaning,
Who taught you the business, school(s), or an individual?

“Self-taught with a lot of help from hospitality professionals.”
“Years in the destination marketing business.”

What would you say is your best selling, product, service, and why?

“DogTrekker has four primary channels, all interrelated: website, travel blog, email newsletter and mobile app.”
“DogTrekker.com is on a mission; It all starts with our 4-Paw Promise™: to deliver local and accurate listings, provide engaging and actionable content and focus on social commitment to the communities we serve.”

“DogTrekker.com (and our mobile app) covers the great dog-passionate™ state of California, with over 8,000 listings featuring dog-friendly hotels, restaurants, hikes, beaches, attractions, wineries, local and emergency services.”

“For the Shasta Cascade Region, DogTrekker lists over 250 dog-friendly listings, including over 90 dog-friendly lodging properties. DogTrekker.com has published over four dozen stories about why to visit Redding and the Shasta Cascade; driving tourism to the region and being part of nearly a billion dollars of tourist spending, propelling over 11 million jobs and generating 27 million dollars in local tax revenues.”

“Tammy Got Stuff?” Thrift Store

A personal story from the heart of Robert Fetty “Project Manager Best of the North State”. Robert meet Tammy Lynn and Marcelleus, owners of “Tammy Got Stuff?” Thrift Store over 2 years ago, meeting with them on how I could help their business. They were great to talk too and I knew from the beginning we were going to be more than business associates. I have always been a big fan of Thrift Stores and always wanted them to be successful.  I mean who doesn’t like finding a treasure. Tammy and Marcelleus are heard about all over Redding. Being in social media marketing you run into each other on Facebook, Yelp & Google. I soon found out that they are involved with Redding more than most mom and pop Thrift Store. They believe in helping our community.  I wish more people came forward and tell their story of how they help our community.  When Tammy told me they were moving down to San Bernardino, California, my first thought  was, who will fill their shoes in our town of Redding?

So many people came forward and said how Tammy and Marcelleus changed their life. I know working with “Tammys Got Stuff?” Thrift Store my life has changed. The love and compassion that those two had made my day. Not only did they help out many organizations but they helped out real people with real problems. So many times I would be visiting Tammy and Marcelleus and someone would come in trying to help another person out. They would not only help them but sometimes just give them what they needed to help that person. Does not matter if they homeless, senior, or even a sad person needing someone to talk to, they were there. Their final hurrah they donated everything to #Lungs4Lindsey to raise money for Linsey Arzate double lung transplant.  Tammy and Marcelleus you will truly be missed. Truly one of the Best of the North States favorite Thrift Store.#notforgotten

Benefits Concert for Lindsey coming soon

August 5th 2017

 

Dear Friends,What if you were living on borrowed time?

#Lungs4Lindsey

Lindsey Arzate is fighting for her life. In 2012, after giving birth to her daughter, Lindsey was diagnosed with systemic scleroderma which is an autoimmune disease that affects the internal organs. During a subsequent hospitalization in March 2016, she found out she had heart failure and pulmonary arterial hypertension. Nine months later, Lindsey was hospitalized with advanced severe pulmonary hypertension and is on oxygen and IV medications 24/7. Now doctors say a double lung transplant is critical.
This has been an extremely challenging time for Lindsey and her husband, Manuel, who are parents of two young children. Lindsey’s illness has had a major impact on her family emotionally, mentally and financially. She describes her situation as a huge roller coaster ride, but remains hopeful for a second chance at life. Before her health began to decline, Lindsey loved hiking, swimming, and traveling, but these days her activities are extremely limited. She is still able to enjoy cooking, crafting, movies, shopping and just being with friends and family. Lindsey looks forward to one day being able to breathe on her own and being free from the IV, so she can do all the things a young wife and mother dreams of doing with her family.

#Lungs4Lindsey

Unfortunately, Lindsey’s hope for a new life comes at a very high price.
The average double lung transplant costs over $1 million. And, that’s only the beginning. Even with insurance, which will cover a portion of the transplant costs, she still faces significant expenses related to the surgery. For the rest of her life, she will need follow-up care and anti-rejection medications. Post-transplant medications are very expensive, and they’re as critical to her survival as the transplant itself.
When she receives her transplant, Lindsey and Manuel must temporarily relocate over 200 miles from their home to be near the hospital for a least six weeks during the recovery process, incurring substantial expenses for travel, food and lodging. Because of her declining health, she had to leave a job she loved as a supervisor of a day program for intellectually disabled adults adding to the financial strain.
What if your life depended on the compassion and generosity of others?
The National Foundation for Transplants (NFT) is working with volunteers and supporters to help relieve the growing burden of expenses for Lindsey. NFT has been assisting transplant patients with fundraising support for more than 30 years. Your gift—of $25, $50, $100 or more—will enable NFT to provide Lindsey with the financial support she desperately needs.
You can help by visiting http://give.transplants.org/goto/lindseyarzate to make a tax-deductible donation to NFT to help with her expenses.
If you have any questions about NFT, feel free to contact the staff at 800-489-3863.

Woody’s Brewing Company to host Chris Mike Zoo show

Woody’s Brewing Co to host Chris Mike Zoo show

In 1983, Chris Collins, along with partner, Mike Reynolds, and a wacky cast of characters created entertainment and radio magic in Northern California that has now extended to a worldwide audience. The Chris Mike Zoo show has captured the imagination of a world-wide audience due to their insane abilities to take perfectly mundane news stories, from around the globe; throw them in the Zoo blender and serve up an irreverent, and often times, off-colored look – at what goes on in our great, big ball of a planet. If you’re tired of the same-ole, same-ole, drop by for a few laughs, great food and even better Brew at Woody’s Brewery. Chances are you might have a wonderful time, but the Chris Mike Zoo show knows, you’ll bust a rib laughing. Woody’s Brewing Company Presents: 1257 Oregon Street Redding, CA 96001 530-768-1034
