The Outlaws will bring their legendary performance style to Milford Connecticut in October for a concert at Veterans Memorial Auditorium.

This should be a great opportunity for southern rock fans to get back to live entertainment and see some true legends perform… This should be a great one.”

— Baker Concerts

MILFORD, CONNECTICUT, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Outlaws, legends of southern rock, are bringing their celebrated sound to Connecticut’s Veterans Memorial Auditorium on Saturday, October 2, 2021. Tickets are on sale now at MilfordVMA.com.

For more than 40 years, The Outlaws have celebrated triumphs and endured tragedies to remain one of the most influential and best-loved bands of the genre. Back with new music, new focus, and an uncompromising mission, The Outlaws are a band of brothers bound together by history, harmony, and the road. They respect their own legacy while refusing to be defined by the past – including their own.

“Because The Outlaws had been out of the public eye for so long, it was almost like starting over,” original singer/songwriter and guitarist Henry Paul said of the band’s acclaimed 2012 comeback album It’s About Pride. “But because of the band’s history, we’re still seeing this as a new chapter. What our fans loved then is what they still love now, because we are just as good or even better than we were.”

Tickets are available now at ezEvent.com, with prices beginning as low as $40 and premium seats at the edge of the stage available for $55. Organizers are confident that the performance will run as planned with full capacity as concerts return from their long hiatus due to the coronavirus. Should a cancellation be necessary, full refunds would be granted.

“This should be a great opportunity for southern rock fans to get back to live entertainment and see some true legends perform,” says a spokesperson for Baker Concerts, which is organizing the show. “After being locked out from live entertainment for so long, we’re thrilled to see shows coming back, and this should be a great one.”

Veterans Memorial Auditorium is an intimate venue at 70 West River Street, Milford, Connecticut with a capacity of 962 assigned seats. Originally part of the Milford High School, the auditorium has undergone a face-lift to become part of the Parsons Government Center and the home of performing arts in the city.

Doors for The Outlaws on October 2, 2021 at Milford’s Veterans Memorial Auditorium open at 7 p.m. with music scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. Tickets can be purchased now at www.MilfordVMA.com .

(FiDef brings out) …the best of the mix and the emotion of the mix…extremely effectively.”

— audio engineer Frank Filipetti

SANTA CRUZ, CALIFORNIA, USA, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — MAAT Incorporated, a manufacturer of exceptional performance professional audio solutions, today announced the release of thEQblue version 3.0, a cross–platform plug–in for correction and aesthetic equalization of all content including music, motion picture and game audio.

Friedemann Tischmeyer, one of MAAT’s co–founders, was an early proponent of the FideliQuest magic. “We all know it intuitively,” Tischmeyer stated, “but your brain really does hear more than you might think.” He quipped that “…clients love it…we have put my outboard gear on notice!” FiDef itself has found a home in the workflows of prominent practitioners, from producer extraordinaire Gary Katz, to legendary engineers Elliot Scheiner and Frank Filipetti. Filipetti emphasized the potential of FiDef when he stated that it brings out, “…the best of the mix and the emotion of the mix…extremely effectively.” Al Schmitt, engineer emeritus, sums it up neatly with the sentiment that, “It (FiDef) doesn’t do anything except sound better.”

MAAT’s thEQblue plug–in is delivered in all modern formats, including cross–platform AAX, VST 2 and VST 3 as well as AU for macOS. Perpetual licenses for thEQblue are available in two tiers; thEQblue6 offers six popular series equalizer Architectures, while thEQblue12 extends the license to include the entire set of all ten series plus two additional parallel Architectures.

— Michael Mitchell

PENFIELD, NY, USA, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Many people have felt their emotions change as they listen to certain songs. However, music has a larger affect on mood than most of us think. Recent research has shown that music can reduce anxiety, increase happiness, and more. Michael Mitchell of Penfield NY recently discussed how music can improve your mood. 

"Music has always been an important part of human life," Michael Mitchell of Penfield NY said. "Recent research has unveiled that 'important' may be an understatement."

Michael Mitchell of Penfield NY stated that recent studies took place at Finland's University of Jyväskylä and Durham University in the United Kingdom. The studies included surveys of roughly 2,400 people and questioned about memorable experiences and feelings associated with listening to songs that are characteristically sad.

"Amazingly, the studies showed that even sad songs were linked to positive feelings in a majority of the participants," Michael Mitchell of Penfield NY said. "Researchers believe this is because people can relate to the sad music. It's almost like having an emphatic friend who can relate to what you're experiencing."

Michael Mitchell of Penfield NY explained that other studies showed upbeat music was linked to an overall happier mood. Michael Mitchell of Penfield NY added that the benefits went far beyond this, as happiness is linked to superior relationship satisfaction, a higher income, and better physical health, and more. 

"A study in 2015 by The Lancet showed that people who listened to music before, during, or after undergoing surgery reported less anxiety and less pain," Michael Mitchell of Penfield NY said. "Those who listened to music even needed less pain medication."

Michael Mitchell of Penfield NY stated that these studies show music can have countless physical and mental benefits that result in a superior mood. The World Journal of Psychiatry recently reported that music therapy can be effective in treating specific mood disorders related to stroke, multiple sclerosis, dementia, and Parkinson's disease. Michael Mitchell of Penfield NY added that researchers and psychiatrists concluded that music is a legitimate form of therapy for improving self-esteem, reducing depression, reducing anxiety, and more. 

"Everyone is affected by music in one way or another, whether they play music or listen to it," Michael Mitchell of Penfield NY said. "All of this research, and so many other studies, have proven that music truly can positively impact your quality of life."

The 6th Annual Haiti International Film Festival Set for August 14-15 is Accepting Short and Feature Film Submissions

The 6th Annual Haiti International Film Festival, a two-day film festival set for August 14-15, 2021, celebrates Haitian art and culture. Founded in 2015, HIFF provides a platform for Haitian filmmakers. The 2021 theme is #HaitianCollaboration and #Haiti.

2020 HIFF Winners for Feature: “Desrances” Dir. Apolline Traore; Documentary: “In Search Of Voodoo: Road to Heaven” Dir. Djimon Hounsou; Innovative: “Out Of Chaos: An Artist’s Journey In Haiti” Dir. Pascal Giacomini; and Short: “Rasin” Dir. Pierre Lucson Bellegarde.

Haiti Tech Summit, founded by Forbes 30 Under 30 Entrepreneur Christine Souffrant Ntim, partnered with HIFF to launch the first Haitian Mentorship Filmmakers Program on Haitian Independence Day in 2021. Selected short films will be showcased on Haitian Flag Day in May.

The theme for the short films is "What does Haitian Flag Day mean to you?" Selected shorts will be showcased virtually on Haitian Flag Day on May 18, 2021.

It is a dream to bring the Haitian Creative Community together through the Haiti International Film Festival, which has been illuminating the aspirations of Haitian Filmmakers since 2015.”

— Jacquil Constant, Executive Director for Haiti International Film Festival

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The coronavirus changed the way the world engaged in film festivals including the 5th Annual Haiti International Film Festival that went virtual for the first time in August 2020. Today, Executive Director Jacquil Constant announced the 6th Annual Haiti International Film Festival, set for August 14-15, 2021, is accepting submissions in the short, documentary, and feature film categories through FilmFreeway at filmfreeway.com/HaitiInternationalFilmFestival.

"The COVID-19 pandemic was challenging and the film festival successfully pivoted to a two-day online event," said Constant. "If the COVID-19 curve flattens, we plan to return to our festival home at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre, 4800 Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. The core of our festival merges Hollywood with the Haitian culture and brings the stories that shape Haiti to a larger audience."

The theme for the short films is "What does Haitian Flag Day mean to you?" The selected short films will be showcased virtually on Haitian Flag Day on May 18, 2021 on the HIFF website. A major holiday in Haiti since 1803, Haitian Flag Day came to be when the revolutionary leader Jean-Jacques Dessalines ripped up the French tricolor flag. His goddaughter, Catherine Flon, used only the red and blue stripes from the French flag to stitch together Haiti's first independent flag.

"It is a dream to bring the Haitian Creative Community together through the Haiti International Film Festival, which has been illuminating the aspirations of Haitian Filmmakers since 2015," said Constant. "We are also developing a streaming platform for Haitian filmmakers to allow diverse audiences to experience Haitian films throughout the year."

Haiti Tech Summit, founded by Forbes 30 Under 30 Entrepreneur Christine Souffrant Ntim, partnered with HIFF to launch the first historic Haitian Filmmakers Mentorship Program on January 1, 2021 on Haitian Independence Day. Applicants can apply to the program at www.haititechsummit.com. The last day to submit an application is February 25, 2021. “The partnership combines two like-minded organizations that have a passion for changing the narrative and of Haiti through film and tech,” said Ntim.

The Haitian Filmmakers Mentorship Program is a month-long virtual experience throughout the Haitian Diaspora. Emerging filmmakers will have an opportunity to learn from Haitian established filmmakers to improve their careers. The mentees will produce a short film after the mentorship program concludes.

"The partnership with Ms. Ntim of Haiti Tech Summit on Haitian Independence Day was very significant for me," said Constant. "On January 1, 1804, Haiti made history by being the first Black Republic to gain its independence." Haiti celebrates every year on January 1, the same day as New Year's Day. Haiti Independence Day is an important holiday and the most important event in history as it marks Haiti's independence from the French colonial empire.

"We are proud to announce that the mentee's films will be showcased at the 6th Annual Haiti International Film Festival in Los Angeles and Haiti," said Constant. Since 2017, Haiti Tech Summit launched an inspiring 13-year initiative to change the future of the country via technology and innovation.

Wind Power Surpasses Coal in Texas

Wind Power Surpasses Coal in Texas

Wind Power Surpasses Coal in Texas”

— KAROL DONIMIRSKI

ZADAR, CROATIA, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Lone Star State seems to have been largely associated with fossil fuels for years. Although shale gas and oil have long dominated supreme in Texas, coal has also been a major part of the state’s energy mix for a long time, currently turning in at around 18%. Not for long, though. Via Texas, the winds of transition blast. Wind power surpassed coal in the total electricity balance of the state in 2020 for the very first time, “the newest sign of the growing popularity of the renewable energy in fossil fuel heartland of America,” as per the Financial Times.

The state has already been passionately gradually developing its wind power potential as the shale boom that placed Texas on the world energy map has been slowing off. Texas has become one of the pioneers in the national wind power revolution, “pulling in billions of dollars of the capital investment over the last decade as well as growing the generation of electricity steadily from fuel.” In the recent past, in West Texas’s oil fields, the refineries all along Gulf Coast, and then all the government halls whereby Texans work, from Austin to the Washington DC, clean energies and everything that could even be indirectly linked to a liberal agenda is anathema.

Around the same time as the United States shale-based economy crashed, the massive infusion of capital into wind power was a powerfully compelling chain of events to get more business executives on board with the transition to renewable energy. Capital has had a depoliticizing influence in Texas’ energy markets, as well as some extremely conservative people who are decidedly disinterested in the atmosphere or environmental concerns are getting really, extremely wealthy from solar and wind power as the petro-dogma disappears. As such, last year, wind energy accounted for a remarkable quarter of the electricity mix, not only surpassing coal but blowing breezily beyond it.

New Research Shows Private Jet Travel To Continue Strong Rebound; Retain New Customers Post-COVID-19

Security concerns may lead private aviation users to switch more flights away from the airlines; Over 95% of new flyers saying they will continue post-pandemic

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Key highlights of the Private Jet Card Comparisons' Subscriber Flash Survey:

– 96% of new private jet travelers plan to continue after the pandemic
– 30% of respondents say domestic terror threats and unrest may increase their percentage of private flights away from the airlines
– 68% expect to travel internationally despite new COVID-19 requirements that include private jet travelers
– Subscribers spent an average of $211,607 on jet card purchases over the past 18 months

Private aviation will continue to be a top performer in the travel and tourism segment in the near term and is well-positioned to keep its momentum in a post-COVID-19 world, according to new research.

A flash survey of subscribers to private aviation solutions buyer's guide Private Jet Card Comparisons found nearly 30% may switch some airline flights to private aircraft amidst concerns about domestic terror threats and unrest in the wake of the riots at the Capitol.

The research also found despite the upcoming COVID-19 testing requirements for anyone entering the U.S., more than two-thirds expect to travel internationally.

What’s more, 96% of respondents who started or restarted flying privately due to the coronavirus say they plan to continue after the pandemic ends.

Respondents to the survey, conducted via email from Jan. 15 to Jan. 19, were evenly split between subscribers who had been using private aviation before the pandemic and those who had started or restarted, seeking to minimize COVID-19 exposure. Previous research shows fewer than 20 touch points when using a private jet compared to over 700 with the airlines.

Over four in 10 respondents (41%) who are newbies said they would continue to fly privately "regularly" after the pandemic is over. A further 55% said they would use private aviation “once in a while after the pandemic is over.” Only 4% expect to stop private flights.

"The results show private aviation should expect a significant net gain in customers and flying post-pandemic," said Doug Gollan, Founder, and Editor-in-Chief of Private Jet Card Comparisons. "New private aviation users were very clear that once they started flying privately, they came to understand the broad benefits. Sadly, domestic unrest is now becoming a consideration as well."

FOR NEW PRIVATE FLYERS – POST-COVID-19 PRIVATE JET TRAVEL OUTLOOK:

– 41% plan to continue flying privately regularly after the pandemic is over
– 55% plan to fly privately once in a while after the pandemic is over
– 4% plan to stop flying privately once the pandemic is over

“I’m really not sure why I didn’t do this sooner,” said one new private traveler. Another added, “You can buy the cheapest car, or you can pay more for a nicer car, with a better ride, safer and more comfortable. Private jets are just a better way to travel if you can afford it, and if you can afford it, it makes a lot of sense in so many ways.”

A McKinsey analysis last year estimated there were only around 100,000 regular private aviation users in the U.S., although 1.5 million affluent households have the means. Private air charters are back to 90% of pre-COVID levels, largely driven by new users.

Of subscribers who were flying privately prior to the pandemic, 38% said they would likely increase the percentage of their flights using private aviation after the pandemic is over, with 55% saying usage will be similar to before COVID-19.

FOR EXISTING PRIVATE FLYERS – POST-COVID-19 PRIVATE JET TRAVEL OUTLOOK:

– 55% plan to continue flying privately regularly after the pandemic is over
– 38% plan to increase the percentage of their flights using private aviation after the pandemic is over
– 7% plan to decrease the percentage of their flights using private aviation after the pandemic is over

Several respondents were skeptical of cleaning and social distancing procedures by the airlines. Others added that decreased airline schedules mean much longer travel times and more problematic connections.

The riot at the Capitol, threats to elected officials in airports, and the possibility of more domestic terrorism and unrest is also spurring more respondents to private jets. Nearly a third (32%) of new private flyers said they might end up switching some flights away from the airlines to private aviation.

FOR NEW PRIVATE FLYERS – RESPONSE TO CAPITOL RIOT/DOMESTIC THREATS:

– 68% won’t change their mix of flights using private aviation and the airlines
– 16% may switch some flights to private aviation instead of using the airlines
– 16% say if there are continued incidents, unrest, or attacks, they may switch flights from the airlines to private aviation

“The stuff at the airport was quite concerning,” said one subscriber. Another said, “We fly to several state capitals, and there are less flights, to begin with, so this just makes it an easy decision to go private…It certainly makes sense to have a plane at the airport waiting to go if something did happen.”

Those who were flying privately prior to COVID-19 were less likely (26%) to be thinking about switching flights from airlines, with a number of respondents offering comments like, “No impact. I only fly private.”

FOR EXISTING PRIVATE FLYERS – RESPONSE TO CAPITOL RIOTS/DOMESTIC THREATS:

– 74% Won’t change their mix of flights using private aviation and the airlines
– 16% may switch some flights to private aviation instead of using the airlines
– 10% say If there are continued incidents, unrest, or attacks, they may switch flights from the airlines to private aviation

Overall, 30% of respondents say they may move more of their flying to private aviation due to concerns about domestic unrest.

Just over two-thirds of respondents (68%) say they expect to travel internationally despite the new U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) COVID-19 testing requirements, which include private jet arrivals.

FOR IMPACT OF CDC COVID-19 TESTING REQUIREMENTS FOR PRIVATE JET TRAVELERS:

– 31% say I would travel outside the US if I have confidence I can get tested locally before returning
– 28% say the new CDC requirements make it less likely I will travel outside the US
– 25% say I plan to travel outside the US, and it doesn’t have an impact
– 16% say I would travel outside the US if the hotel/resort provides testing on-property

About a third (31%) said they would travel internationally so long as they have confidence they can get tested locally before returning. A further 28% said the new CDC requirements would make it less likely they take international trips, while 25% said the new rule, which goes into effect on Jan. 26, doesn’t have an impact. Some 16% said they would travel internationally so long as the hotel or resorts provides on-property testing.

PRIVATE JET SOLUTIONS

In terms of private aviation solutions, 83% of Private Jet Card Comparisons subscribers use jet cards, 32% charter on a trip-by-trip basis, 12% catch rides on friends’ private jets, 6% have fractional shares, 4% own their own private jets, and 1% fly on private aircraft for companies they work for, but don’t own. Numbers add up to more than 100% due to subscribers who have multiple solutions.

Only 1% say they use semi-private services where they can split costs or buy single seats. Some 3% said they haven’t flown privately yet, but are looking at options, while under 1% said they haven’t flown privately in the past 24 months and don’t expect to fly privately in the next year.

Of subscribers who bought or renewed a jet card that included a deposit within the past 18 months, the average deposit was $211,607. Additionally, 6% purchased pay-as-you-go jet cards and memberships where they paid a joining fee but didn’t have to wire any funds to keep on the account.

For jet card users, 61% said it was the first time they bought a jet card from that provider, 40% renewed with an existing provider, and 26% said they didn’t need to buy additional hours. Numbers add up to more than 100% as some users bought jet cards from multiple providers. About 1 in 5 (19%) reported switching providers.

The survey garnered 145 responses with a 4% +/- margin of error. A donation of $10 per respondent is being made to Feeding America, enough to provide 14,500 meals to those in need.

ABOUT PRIVATE JET CARD COMPARISONS

The annual price of a 12-month subscription to the online private aviation buyer’s guide is $250 and comes with personal assistance via its JET CARD DECIDER service. Subscribers can compare providers and programs by 65 variables, including safety standards, company size and history, key policies, inclusions, and amenities, including lead time for bookings and cancelations, surcharges, and discounts.

Etzioni has just released a stand-alone single “Love Letter to Democracy” as a follow up to his critically acclaimed album "What's the Mood of the Country Now?" which features soul songstress Sy Smith.

Etzioni is also part of the Los Angeles-based power duo with Willie Aron known as Thee Holy Brothers. They have just released “Lift You Up” as a stand-alone single and video directed by award-winning filmmaker Fr3deR1cK of Tomorrow Pictures. The recording features Stephon Ferguson as the voice of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Etzioni was a founding member of Lone Justice, toured with U2 and Tom Petty, and produced Counting Crows, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Stephen Stills/Judy Collins and others.

Etzioni's most covered song "Can't Cry Hard Enough" is in the Library Of Congress. His songs have been placed in numerous TV shows including "Orange Is the New Black," "Banshee" and "Sneaky Pete." KCSN called Etzioni "Master of Song" in their radio tribute. His songs are represented by peermusic, home of Jimmy Rogers and Donovan.

Sometimes the right song comes along at the right time. On the day and season of the inauguration, we celebrate the new administration. Sean Magee, the Grammy-winning engineer for re-mastering The Beatles, mastered the single and compared the song to John Lennon.

Directed by Etzioni, we see the artist at the piano, shot from above, through glass that partially hides him. The video's focus is a model of the Statue of Liberty, against a harsh gray background, with torch aflame. The sun begins to rise as the song concludes, “She is standing tall, mighty tall, for democracy."

Nashville based American Electro-Pop singer-songwriter Autumn Knight’s latest single ‘I Believe’ has won January “Best Song of the Month” by SongwriterUniverse.

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE, US, January 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Nashville based American Electro-Pop singer-songwriter Autumn Knight’s latest single ‘I Believe’ (co-written by Christie Huff of Los Angeles) has won January “Best Song of the Month” by SongwriterUniverse.

"I Believe is a heartfelt pop ballad that has a positive, uplifting message. The recording starts intimately with just piano and vocal, and then gradually builds momentum and emotion, leading into a full arrangement and choral harmonies by the final chorus. This song provides a fine showcase for Knight’s expressive lead vocals and her piano playing,” says Dale Kawashima, Editor, SongwriterUniverse.

Adding to the buzz, fans can watch Autumn Knight's new Lyric Video — a beautiful compilation of black and white photos depicting the story of I Believe.

“I am thrilled my latest song won best song of the month from SongwriterUniverse.‘ I Believe’ was inspired by overcoming some of the toughest times of my life with strength & resilience. I hope this song is an anthem for others that no matter what – you can move forward especially after this difficult pandemic,” said Knight.

A silver lining in the Pandemic —
Autumn is professionally managed by Robyn Levin, Brand Developer. “My manager, Robyn Levin is such a blessing in my life. I am so excited that we have joined forces to continue to share the music with the world and give back on a global level. It’s rare in this industry to find someone you truly feel a special connection with and understands the vision of the music. Together I know we will continue to do major things,” per Autumn.

Following a successful debut of Autumn’s latest album, ‘Here and Now’ in November 2019, her 2020 tour was unfortunately postponed due to the pandemic. Levin and Knight were introduced by a mutual friend, Danielle Lin, Syndicated Radio Host/Podcaster, ‘Danielle Lin Show’. Lin instinctively knew they had a magical connection and were destined to work together. “We had an immediate bond and a shared vision for Autumn’s talent in music and acting. Together, we forged a new digital path hosting virtual concerts, fundraisers, brand collaborations, creating new music and keeping the fans engaged.
