AmericanTown’s Heroes: EMTs Get Community Service Awards

We are used to honoring police and fire personnel. The essence of their jobs is to proactively protect us as well as respond when there is an emergency, but there is another group that often arrives at the scene of an emergency and you may know them as Emergency Medical Technicians or EMTs. The name says it all. EMTs are there quickly to provide emergency medical support to save or stabilize someone until they can be transported to a hospital or trauma center.

EMTs are sometimes people in the neighborhood with day jobs who volunteer their time to go out on call when there is a medical emergency. The text book definition of an EMT is a person who is specially trained and certified to administer basic emergency services to victims of trauma or acute illness before and during transportation to a hospital or other healthcare facility.

One of their most important responsibilities is knowing how to lift and carry patients in a way that ensures their safety. It is an important and time-critical job. EMTs can be life savers in those precious moments after an accident or natural disaster.

This week’s hero story honors a group of EMTs from local fire departments in Pennsylvania. They were presented with Outstanding Community Service Awards to recognize them for their response and service to the community during several life-threatening situations over the winter.

Thank you, EMTs and all the medical personnel who help save lives.

Do you know someone who is a first responder or EMT worthy of praise? Nominate them for next week’s AmericanTown’s Heroes.

Jul 24,2015: Stepping Feet, Los Sindicate and more


Dane Drewis’ love for music and passion for live performance came to fruition during his
six year stretch as the front-man for rock/funk band Cuesta Drive. While singing, composing,
and playing guitar for the band, Dane wrote and produced three records with Cuesta Drive.
In 2010, Dane released his solo debut “Rock Soul.” An album defined by crisp vocal
harmonies, precise guitar work, and a solid rhythm section. The distinct and versatile songs
take their cues from the rock, blues, and soul music of the 60′s and 70′s. Vocally, the album
showcases Beatle-esque harmonies and the melodic stylings of the Motown era. Other aspects
were largely influenced by the lead guitar work of prodigies like Santana, Stevie Ray Vaughan
and Jimmy Page.

Dane’s distinct sound encompasses the range of his influences, taking cues from pop,
jazz, rock, rb, reggae, folk, soul, and blues. “Rock Soul” calls upon all of his immediate
family members for their talent and support. Janel and Deena Drewis can be heard throughout
the album on vocals, guitars, keyboards and percussion, while his parents, Dale and Janet
Drewis, provide bass and vocal harmonies respectively. The Dane Drewis band is currently
touring to promote the new release with Dale Drewis (Father) on Bass/vocals and Jason Weed
on the drums.

The refreshing take on Classic Rock proves to be a formula for success as Dane was
recently featured on the Submerge Magazine cover, “Insights” on NPR, and several TV
appearances which have spurred a rabid fan base up and down the West Coast.
The live show combines sultry originals with an uncanny stage presence that critics are
calling “one of the best live bands I’ve ever seen…their live performances are even better than
the recordings.”

“Rock Soul” evolves with the help of accredited producers, and collaboration with
decorated songwriters and musicians. The album is being considered for placement in various
film and TV licensing opportunities. The production is cutting edge, while the music itself
remains timeless

Jul 22,2015: The Stooges Brass Band, Terpsichords and more


The Stooges Brass Band has been one of the elite brass bands in New Orleans but only recently are receiving the accolades and well deserved recognition of their importance to the music scene of New Orleans. Since 1996, their high energy show on the stage and in the streets has engaged audiences with their innovative blend of traditional New Orleans brass sounds and contemporary hip-hop beats. The Stooges Brass Band has gained notoriety across the USA and the world as a full-blown musical party whether leading a second-line parade or performing their spirited stage show.

The band is undeniably one of the hardest working bands out of New Orleans, and their dedication to their craft has made an impact. The Stooges Brass Band victoriously battled in the finals for the title of “Red Bull Street Kings: Best Brass Band” under the iconic Claiborne Bridge in NOLA (the subject of a recent documentary). Along with this auspicious title, the band won an all-expenses paid trip for a recording and mentorship session with a producer in the Red Bull Studios in California. You can watch the results of this project here: The Red Bull Studio Sessions.

In April 2011, the Stooges Brass Band were awarded the title of “Best Contemporary Brass Band” at the Big Easy Music Awards. The momentum continued in 2012, touring clubs throughout the country and appearing at famed festivals such at Bonnaroo, South by Southwest, headlining the Utah Arts Festival, Discover Jazz Festival, American Folk Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, Great American Brass Band Festival, and
more.

cultural ambassadors to New Orleans on a two week tour through Pakistan. They continued to tour internationally, with a two week tour of the United Kingdom for the Edinburgh Jazz Festival, the Durham Brass Festival, and more.

Whether they’re second-lining in the back streets of the Crescent City, or performing across the country, the Stooges Brass Band immerse crowds in a high-energy, cut loose vibe that’s contemporary yet deeply rooted in the culturally rich musical legacy of city of New Orleans.
