GREEN PARTY CANDIDATE RUNNING IN THE 17TH CONGRESSIONAL

 

Quad Cities - The Illinois Green Party has another congressional candidate, and his name is Troy Dennis. Mr. Dennis is a resident of Mount Zion, IL where he has worked as a restaurateur and small business owner in logistics.

 

Mr. Dennis is the only opponent against incumbent Phil Hare. Mr. Dennis is an informed citizen who is tired of the whole system. I am tired of the pandering, lip service, corruption, disregard for the constitution, and the destruction of ideals. Mr. Dennis has a website, which is www.troydennis2008.com. Mr. Dennis is also not taking PACs, lobby money, or corporate contributions.

Umphrey's McGee is a progressive rock/jam
band from South Bend, Indiana whose music is often referred to as "progressive
improvisation." In July 2004, the band was declared by Rolling
Stone Magazine to "have become odds-on favorites in the next-Phish
sweepstakes."

Though the band's approach to their live
performances has much in common with Phish and the Grateful Dead (ever-changing
setlists, constant improvisation, two sets per night, open-taping policy),
they are much more influenced musically by progressive rock bands such
as King Crimson, Yes, Pink Floyd, Dream Theater, Frank Zappa, and Genesis,
as well as heavy metal bands such as Iron Maiden. The band also "identifies
The Police, The Beatles, The Monkees, Nick D'Virgilio, and Led Zeppelin
as primary influences with a reverence the members describe as 'Biblical.'"
However, there really isn't a style of popular music that Umphrey's
does not cover. Artists covered in concert by Umphrey's range from Lionel
Richie to Metallica to Toto to Snoop Dogg to Paul Simon to Radiohead
to The Rolling Stones.- wikipedia 
 
Umphrey’s McGee recently announced that they will be playing the famous
Bonnaroo Festival for the 5th consecutive year. The band
will be playing in top billing alongside such heavyweights as Pearl
Jam, Metallica, Jack Johnson, Kayne West and Robert Plant. The band
also announced their addition to the Summer Camp festival in May, where
they will be playing alongside The Flaming Lips. 

 

“Umphrey’s McGee combines crisp song
construction and vocal-harmony sunlight with a high-speed, improvised
daring onstage.”- Rolling Stone
