SR Alumnus, Adam Reader, and The Terks Bring Their Big Band Sound Home!

Image

The Snake River Education Foundation is proud to welcome Snake River alumnus, Adam Reader, home for a concert to benefit the community and schools he attended growing up. Adam is the son of Steve and Becky Reader of Blackfoot. The couple raised six children together in Snake River while running a successful business and putting down roots within the district and community. In fact, Steve will soon be completing a seventeen year stint as a school board member marking the longest term for a member on record in the district. Becky has served in several leadership and volunteer roles to benefit the district over the years as well. This type of example made it an easy choice for Adam to want to give back to the community that helped him cement the values he prides and lives by. Reader graduated from Snake River High School in 1995 and is excited to take the stage with his band, The Terks, on the evening of May 18th, 2013. Formerly starring in lead roles in several SRHS musicals, Adam now is now living his dream as a chart topping recording artist.

Adam Reader is the founder and president of Refinement Records and is the lead singer for The Terks. In a short time, The Terks have become one of the biggest bands in Utah and created a substantial following. The Deseret News and The Salt Lake Tribune have called them “one of the best local bands who will go big.” They were awarded the Hollywood Music Award for Best Unsigned Band in the Nation on Grammy weekend last year after being nominated out of thousands of bands worldwide. They have been praised by critics from Rolling Stone, iTunes, and The Chicago Sun-Times who called them “one of next great American bands.” The Terks currently top the Global and National Jazz charts and will release their new album in May. Most recently, noted Utah publication Utah Music and Arts Magazine did a five page feature on the band detailing their sound and their business endeavors.

With sure footing on their own path, Reader and his partner, Patrick Coffin, have created their own recording label, Refinement Records. The studio is based in Draper, Utah and caters to burgeoning talent in the area and across the nation. The concept is to help those hoping to break into the music industry to do so by having the appropriate coaching, marketing, and the opportunity to record in a state of the art recording studio with the help of experienced professionals. Reader and his bandmates will be offering this expertise at three separate workshops sponsored by the SREF prior to the concert. Two workshops will run at 1:00 p.m. with one focusing on guitar and one on drums. Participants would need to choose which workshop would best suit their talents.  At 2:00 p.m. there will be a vocal workshop, and at 3:00 p.m. there will be a final all inclusive workshop opportunity. The charge for each workshop will be $4; this means that a participant can pay to attend one, two, or all three! This is an amazing opportunity for young vocalists and musicians in the area to work with industry professionals for a minimal price that will go back into their local programs.

Please contact Julie Wada of the SREF at 681-7247 for both workshop reservation sign ups and reserved concert ticket sales. Concert tickets are $8 each with proceeds also going to the SREF to donate back to student programs within the Snake River School District. The musical workshops and evening concert will be held at the Snake River High School located at 922 W Hwy 39, Blackfoot, Idaho. The concert will begin at 6:30 p.m. with special guest appearances by the Snake River High School Jazz Band, the SR Sixth Grade Strings Students, and the winners of the competitive Crawford Cup competition. Buy your tickets today and welcome Adam Reader and The Terks as they bring their Big Band sound back home!

Two Weeks Left Before Footloose

Footloose Cast,

Last week was great! We can finally see it all coming together, or at least, starting to come together. 🙂 We still need 2 more weeks of good rehearsals. So,

EVERYONE PLEASE BE AT ALL REHEARSALS THIS WEEK! – EXCEPT Children only need to come on Saturday.

Thurs, 6:30-9:30pm; Fri, 6:30-9:30pm; Sat, 8:00am.

PROPS: We are looking for one more table, preferably something like a small cafeteria table with the bench/chairs attached, like a fold out picnic table. If anyone has one or knows where we can find one, please call me (684-9838 or Julie Hudson 684-4748.)

CAST PARTY: We have decided to have a cast party on Saturday morning, March 2nd, before the final show. It will be held in the high school cafeteria. We hope to see all of you there!! You will receive some food assignments or other information soon.

COSTUMES: Almost everyone has all of their costumes. Now, just look for some accessories that will finish them off, like rhinestones or bling for the Chicago scene, 80’s style earrings for the girls, skinny ties for the boys, etc.

MAKE-UP: You will need to get some of your own make-up. For 8th grade and younger, please get your own foundation. Everyone needs to get their own eye liner, mascara and lipstick – dark brown eye liner/mascara for boys/men and black for girls/women, dark bright lip color for females, dark neutrals for males. Everyone please bring a can of good hairspray. If anyone has stage make-up, please bring it! Mandy Wayland is the chief of make-up. Her phone # is 604-3631 and she welcomes all questions and suggestions.

Thanks everyone!
Karen

3 Weeks Till Show Time!

Hey Ladies and Gents of the Footloose Cast,

We’re down to 3 weeks till show time! We hope you are all having a great time! Here’s what’s up:

WE WANT ALL CAST MEMBERS TO BE TO ALL REHEARSALS FROM NOW ON!! (The only exception to this is children, see below.) THIS IS POLISHING TIME. ON THURSDAY, WE WILL RUN THROUGH THE ENTIRE SHOW, BEGINNING TO END, SO PLEASE BE THERE FOR THAT, IF POSSIBLE! AFTER THAT, WHENEVER YOU ARE NOT WORKING WITH PAUL ON STAGE, YOU WILL BE WORKING WITH DEANNE ON VOCALS OR WITH KASSIDY OR HANNAH ON CHOREOGRAPHY. WE’VE GOT A LOT TO WORK ON SO COME EVERY DAY READY TO GIVE YOUR BEST FOR 3-4 HOURS.

Times are Thursday – 6:30pm, Friday – 6:30pm, Saturday – 8:00am

Children, please come for Thursday’s complete run through. Then you’ll have your usual practice on Friday at 7:00. I don’t know about Saturday, yet, but please be prepared to come for a little bit on that day, too, if we need you. We’ll tell you that decision on Thursday.

Costumes – all cast members, please bring your costumes Thursday and show them to Angela McCandless for approval. If you have any questions, please call her at 684-3402 or 680-5979.

Make-Up – please let me know if you have any stage make-up of your own. You can reply to this e-mail or call me at 684-9838 or 221-9838. You do not have to go buy any, but we’d like to get a count of how many have some of their own.

Parents, we will need 1 or 2 parents each night of dress rehearsals and performance nights to be back stage with the children when they are not on stage, helping them get ready/entertaining/supervising. Those dates are Thursday, 2/21 – Saturday, 2/23 and Monday, 2/25 – Saturday, 3/2. If you can help for a few of those days please let me know, and if you are willing to organize this part of the play, please let me know that, too. I’d just as soon let the parents work this out with each other.

Parents, we will also need 2 people to take tickets at the door each performance evening. If you would be willing to help with this any of those nights, please let me know.

Posters – hopefully, you all put up the posters that you took after practice last Thursday. If you didn’t, get them up ASAP! If it isn’t going to work to put them up, please get them back to me ASAP! Those are wasted money if we don’t get them up somewhere so people can see them! You can also get more postcards to give to friends/family at each practice.

Tickets – We have tickets ready! If you want some, just bring the money and give to Marlynn Williams (684-9684) at rehearsal. They are $5 each, no group discounts. She will have them at each rehearsal, if you want to get some from her there. Remember Paul Page’s offer to give $50 to whomever sells the most!

Alright, that’s it for now. Thanks for all of your help in making this work!
Karen
