editor’s letter JUNE 2015 Summertime has arrived with a warm embrace as we gear up for a season filled with family fun, vacations at the beach, backyard BBQ’s and endless outdoor activities. Each year when the month of June rolls around I tend to observe a sense of lightness in the air with long summer evenings that seem to go on forever. There is a joyful spirit around town as locals anticipate weekend plans or extended vacations with loved ones. This month Wayne Magazine presents an exciting event to the community of Wayne by throwing an amazing music festival on N. Wayne Avenue on Saturday, June 6th. This is my way of showing my gratitude to a community that has embraced Wayne Magazine so warmly in these last two years. The festival will feature all genres of music with bands from Wayne, Philly and even New Orleans! I thank all of the sponsors and vendors who are supporting and participating in this event to make it the best possible festival Wayne has experienced thus far. A special thanks goes out to Chris Todd and Ken Kearns for all of their amazing hard work and effort to assure that this would be one heck of a festival. I am confident we will be rocking out N. Wayne Avenue like it’s never been done before. Be sure to stick around for the fireworks at the end of the evening right in downtown Wayne. This is all for you and I do hope each of you will come on out, put your dancing shoes on and let loose a little with your friends, family and fellow neighbors.

Laurie Wightman’s Contact Information: Email: Laurie@ WayneMagazine.com

I do hope you will enjoy this special issue to kick off the summer solstice later on this month. We offer an overview on all of the bands that will be performing at the festival, a snapshot into a quick summer getaway up at Skytop Resort, the Plein Air Art Exhibition going on through the end of June along with our usual feature stories. So pull out your bathing suits and flip flops, turn up the music and let’s get to some summertime fun! Sincerely,

dog of the month by Laurie Wightman

M

eet Beesly, one of the specially trained dogs that has come out of a very unique program from the nonprofit organization called Paws and Affection. The mission behind Paws and Affection is to train and place service dogs with children who have mobility-related disabilities. The organization helps children on the Main Line and Philadelphia area who use wheelchairs, crutches, walkers or who have balance difficulties due to conditions such as muscular dystrophy, cystic fibrosis, cerebral palsy, osteosarcoma, or an injury resulting in a permanent mobility disability. They assess the needs of the children and determine which dog will empower each child with independence and confidence by matching them with remarkable dogs like Beesly. Some skills dogs like Beesly offer are: nosing automatic door buttons, providing stability while walking or climbing stairs, picking up dropped items, turning on light switches, and even opening the fridge – just to name a few. Additionally, the dogs can act as a stable object if the child were to fall. They provide constant companionship, even sleeping with the child, ever ready to help as needed. Paws and Affection puppies come to them during a critical socialization period and they immediately begin exposing them to the world in a positive way. They train in a manner that sets their puppies up to make the right choices, making them active participants in their own learning process. All skills and behaviors are taught using reward-based methods backed by scientific research to foster confident, creative, cooperative and amazing dogs. Devon Veterinary Hospital became acquainted with the mission that Paws and Affection was carrying out and immediately wanted to help out in the best way they could. Today, Devon Vet is their primary Hospital for the dogs and donates their services to Paws and Affection whenever needed. The Devon Veterinary Hospital, located in Devon, has been offering medical care to the Main Line since 1952. Practice Owner, Dr. Carol WayneMagazine.com | June 2015

Caracand, VMD, purchased the Veterinary Hospital back in 1988 after graduating from the University of Pennsylvania and working at the hospital as an associate veterinarian. Dr. Caracand has always had a love for animals and an intense interest in the perplexities of veterinary medicine. 31 years later she is running her own veterinary practice and having the accreditation by the American Animal Hospital Association has been a dream come true for her. The mission behind Devon Vet is to enhance the health and well-being of all companion animals by providing caring, individual attention in order to perpetuate and strengthen the human-animal bond. The team at Devon Vet provides the latest medicine, technology and diagnostic equipment to each and every animal. Their services and facilities are designed to facilitate routine, preventative care as well as the diagnosis and treatment of serious illnesses. The Devon Vet team strive to meet the emotional needs for both the owner and their pet. Maintaining a long relationship of service, commitment and excellence is of the utmost importance to the staff. Working at Devon Vet is something that the staff takes great pride in. Dr. Caracand has strived to build a working environment that is equally as caring and thoughtful as the attention they offer to each of their patients. “It’s a family atmosphere and I’ve never seen any other work environment structured the way we are, and where the owner and colleagues care so much about one another as they do here,” commented Tania Tardif, manager of Devon Vet. “Everyone goes to bat for you here. It’s an amazing place to work. I can’t say enough about Dr. Caracand and her heart. She cares a tremendous amount about the employees and the animals equally.”

The Devon Vet staff has worked extremely hard to assure they are providing superior service as a full service veterinary facility to the community. They are focused on providing all aspects of care for companion animals. This was the exact reason why they knew it was a perfect partnership to work alongside Paws and Affection when the opportunity was presented to them. Dogs like Beesly and so many more are making a real difference to so many children in need, and Devon Vet is focused on assuring that these wonderful dogs are in the healthiest condition possible to carry out this important mission.

WAYNE MAGAZINE MUSIC FESTIVAL

the dirty dozen brass band is coming to town Story derived from the DDBB website written by: Michael Hill Wayne Magazine is proud to present the Dirty Dozen Brass Band as the headlining act at the Wayne Magazine Music Festival this Saturday, June 6th. Coming all the way from New Orleans they will fill N. Wayne Avenue with the most glorious sounds of true, gritty music that they have been creating and re-creating for 35 years. To describe how the Dirty Dozen Brass Band has arrived at its 35th Anniversary, trumpet player Gregory Davis employs a tried-and true New Orleans-centric analogy: “It ends up being like a pot of gumbo – you drop in a little okra, drop in a little shrimp, you drop in some crabs. Before you know it, you’ve mixed in all these different ingredients and you’ve got a beautiful soup. That was our approach to music early on and it still is today.”The Dirtry Dozen Brass Band is a collaborative effort made by each of the members – trumpet player Gregory Davis, baritone sax player Roger Lewis, tenor-sax man Kevin Harris, trumpeter Efrem Towns, sousaphonist Kirk Joseph, drummer Terence Higgins and guitarist Jake Eckert — that will be sure to bring the house down. An appetite for musicological adventure,


a commitment to honor tradition while not being constrained by it, and a healthy sense of humor have brought the world-traveling Dirty Dozen Brass Band to this remarkable juncture in an already storied career. To celebrate its 35th, the band is releasing Twenty Dozen, the septet’s first studio release in six years. The new album, cut at the Music Shed in New Orleans, reunites the band with producer Scott Billington, who helmed DDBB’s first major-label release, Voodoo, in 1989. It’s a resolutely upbeat effort that seamlessly blends R&B, jazz, funk, Afro-Latino grooves, some Caribbean flavor, and even a Rihanna cover.While traditional numbers infused with a DDBB flavor have always been crowdpleasing staples of the group’s repertoire, it’s the Dirty Dozen Brass Band’s willingness to look beyond the New Orleans songbook and find connections amongst a wider range of music that has endeared them to critics, fellow musicians and a multi-generational, global audience. They’ve been embraced enthusiastically by the jam-band followers at Bonnaroo as well as by the devotees who flock to the yearly New Orleans Jazz Fest. Acts like the Black Crowes and Widespread Panic have taken them on tour and artists from Dizzy Gillespie to Elvis Costello to Norah Jones have joined them in the studio. DDBB enjoyed the opportunity to look back with the 2011 reissue of it galvanizing 1984 debut, My Feet Can’t Fail Me Now, but the hard-working band has little time for nostalgia. For mainstays like Gregory Davis and Roger Lewis, 35 years have passed in the blink of an eye, as Lewis, who also sits in with several other NOLA combos, acknowledges: “Check it out – I’m 70 years old, I’m the oldest dude in the band – I’m the oldest dude in everybody’s band, now that I think about it. I don’t know where the time went. I guess it’s just the music, man, you don’t be thinking about all that. I’ve been in it 35 straight years. The reason why the band stayed together for so long, despite all we’ve gone through, it’s the right chemistry. We’re trying to make it do what it do. If we have this conversation when I’m 80, we’ll still be trying to make it do what it do.” “As we continue to do live shows,” Davis concludes, “the challenge is still going to be, how am I going to entertain these people that are in front of me tonight? You have to make that happen at the moment, and that’s what we do best.”

the area’s very own “rugby road” is ready to rock out Wayne Magazine is thrilled to have Rugby Road representing local original music at this year’s festival. This year marks the 25th anniversary of Rugby Road playing together as a band. The band members Kenny Kearns (Piano and Vocals); Derek Smith (Guitar and Vocals) and Rich Pruett (Drums and Vocals) relentlessly toured the region in the late ‘90’s through ‘00’s, honing their skills while blending rock, soul, funk, and jazz into a sound all their own. While the band wasn’t designed as a “jam band”, the improvisational WayneMagazine.com | June 2015

element found in their sound quickly became noticed by the Wetlands movement in New York City, where the band worked their way into the budding scene’s regular rotation. Over the years, Rugby Road has shared the stage with some of their musical heroes, including The Allman Brothers Band, Phish, Bill Kreutzman of the Grateful Dead, Peter Frampton, Rusted Root and more. Rugby Road has released 2 original records (available on itunes and amazon) “Times Already Happened” and “Different Degrees”. “Times” showcases the band’s improvisational freedom and captures the band’s early catalog of original material that evolved along with their touring schedule. “Different Degrees” finds the band a bit more grown up and willing to stretch their songwriting and production capabilities into a more consistent studio record. Their ever-evolving sound will be showcased leading into the headlining act – Rugby Road’s festival set starts at 5:30 and they will host an after-festivaljam at J.D. McGillicudy’s starting at 10pm – immediately following the festival fireworks.

phillybloco: a brazilian sound passionately curated in the city of philadelphia

Phillybloco is modeled after the blocos of Rio de Janeiro, with their large percussion sections and harmonic/vocal accompaniment. The group is comprised of 25 members twelve drummers, electric guitar, bass guitar, vocals, horn section, accordion, and Brazilian dancers. The group performs a raucous mash-up of SAMBA, FUNK, REGGAE and more made popular by both Brazilian and non-Brazilian artists including: Olodum, Timbalada, Monobloco, Bob Marley and Stevie Wonder. The one constant in all of the music is a heavy percussive element (12 drummers) that they use to explore the tremendous range of Brazilian rhythms, applying their own unique creativity and energy to each arrangement. Their music is extremely high energy, full of passion and feeling. Phillybloco wants to make people dance, feel good, and give people something to celebrate every time audiences see them perform! The impressive list of band members and instruments played will have you dashing for your dancing shoes. Bach2Rock: Wayne’s Next Generation of Musicians Bach to Rock or B2R is a local business in Wayne that offers music instruction on the knowledge that students learn best when they play the music they enjoy most. They use special arrangements of today’s music to help students become proficient instrumentalists or vocalists as well as seasoned performers. At B2R Music, individual music instruction is combined with band instruction that leads to regularly scheduled public performances, “Battles of the Bands,” and recording sessions in their professional sound studio.


Viv and the Revival: The Modernist in Pop Rock with a Vintage Sound Some artists spend forever waiting for their songs to be heard by millions. Most artists write dozens of songs before hitting the right notes and getting that one little break. Viv and the Revival is not just some artist. Though Viv started playing guitar at age 8, playing in bands at 16, and moving to Los Angeles to work as a session guitar player at 19, he didn’t even write his first song or sing until age 22. In just four years since first putting pen to paper and his unique vocal tone to a microphone, the 26-year-old artist has had tremendous success as a writer. Viv and the Revival songs have been placed worldwide in numerous television shows, national commercials, and movies. In fact, every single song from his self-released 2011 EP “And Then the World Part 1” has been heard by millions in TV placements. NBC’s “The Voice” used 6 of his songs countless times on that show’s second season, and several other tracks on season three and in the British and Australian versions of the show. In describing his sound, Viv says, “I’d say that I’m pretty versatile as far as musical styles that I try to use in my songs. I like to have a good message and I like to believe in my songs. Whatever I’m singing, I truly honestly believe in. I talk about good vibes and good times and it’s what I live for. It’s eclectic, modern rock and pop mixed in with vintage classic sounds, kind in the sense of how Bruno Mars, Adele or OneRepublic does it.” No Good Sister: Philly’s Folk Sisters No Good Sister is a female vocal trio out of Philadelphia, PA. In the Fall of 2012, a mom, a teacher, and a waitress decided to turn their mutual admiration for each other’s music, writing and voices into a musical project that would both showcase them as individuals, but especially highlight their deep affinity for tight three-part harmonies. Since joining forces, members Meghan Kyle, Jess McDowell and Maren Sharrow have quickly formed a musical bond. They craved a project with a little more blues, a little more roots, and one that would have them up front. With the combination of a gypsy jazz-like tone that Meghan has established along with strong sounds of bluegrass/folk that come from Jess and Maren, this harmonious trio has truly raised the bar for female singer/songwriters. Since the formation of No Good Sister, they have performed at World Cafe Live, both in Philadelphia and Wilmington, The Tin Angel, Fergie’s Pub, The Fire, Underground Arts, Milkboy Philly, Ortliebs, Silk City to name a few. and appear regularly in the Four Seasons Lounge. In January of 2014, they were selected by World Cafe Live at The Queen as the Unsung Hearo standout performer of 2013, and won a slot in Hearo.fm’s 2014 SXSW showcase. They are currently recording their original music and will be releasing their first EP by year’s end. WayneMagazine.com | June 2015

9TH ANNUAL PLEIN AIR EXHIBIT by Laurie Wightman

PleinAir Festival

Plein Air Gala Sat, May 16, 2015

O

ne of the most sought-after national juried exhibitions of Plein Air paintings will be on display at the Wayne Art Center through June 27, 2015. The Wayne Art Center’s ninth Annual Plein Air Festival began with 30 artists arriving with their blank canvases on May 12 ready to begin the challenge of executing a brand new body of work in just 4 ½ days. These distinguished artists came from across the country to arrive in Wayne for a five day landscape competition. “The Wayne Art Center Plein Air Festival is an exciting opportunity to bring valued talent to our community,” said Nancy Campbell, Executive Director of Wayne Art Center. Over half of the artists come from other regions stretching up and down the East Coast and Midwest. This year with the growing awareness of the Wayne Plein Air Festival, there has been an increase in the number of applicants and the festival is attracting artists from as far away as California.” Participating artists were chosen by this year’s juror, Ray Roberts. Roberts and his artist wife Peggi Kroll live on a ranch west of the San Francisco Bay area. Beginning his career in illustration, Ray turned to fine art in 1992. Ray Roberts is a Signature Member of the Plein Air Painters of America, Laguna Plein Air Painters Association and California Art Club. He is represented in galleries from coast to coast. Roberts selected 30 artists from across the country to compete in the Plein Air Festival. The artists painted the luscious landscapes and beautiful architecture of the Delaware Valley. Festival artists were directed to paint Michelle Byrne, Broad Street Hustle, 2014

within 20 miles of Wayne during the first three days of the competition. A combination of pastoral scenes from nearby rural areas and parks as well as quaint scenes from historic Main Line neighborhoods made for a pleasing variety of works that reflect the character of our area. On Friday, May 15, the painters ventured over to the 300 year old St. David’s Episcopal Church in Wayne and/or into Philadelphia to capture notable downtown scenes in Center City. On Saturday, May 16, downtown Wayne became the central spot for artists to paint on the final day of the festival. In years past, participating artists have produced over 250 to 300 pieces of fresh work. The exhibit commenced with a Gala Opening and Artist’s Reception on Saturday, May 16 in the Davenport Gallery and Vidinghoff Gallery. Juror, Ray Roberts announced awards and presented $10,000 in


prize money. During the Plein Air Festival in the second annual juried exhibition, Radnor Reflections, Capturing a Way of Life Through the Lens of a Camera, will be presented by the Radnor Conservancy and Wayne Art Center in the Ethel Sergeant Clark Smith Gallery. Radnor Reflections is an exhibition of photography that chronicles the natural, historical and cultural assets of Radnor Township throughout 2014-2015. The Plein Air Festival is an important fundraising event for the Wayne Art Center. Proceeds help support educational and outreach programs that allow the art center to serve all members of the community. These impressive works of art will remain on display and for sale, open to the public until June 27, 2015. Regular gallery hours are Monday through Friday 9AM until 5PM, and Saturdays 10AM until 4PM.

skytop lodge:

A LEGACY IN THE CLASSICS by Michael T. Wiley

T

here are sensations better left to the feeling than explaining. A certain rudimentary understanding of “why” needn’t be articulated. There is a word in Dutch, “gazellig,” which has no literal meaning but yet every Dutch person knows what it means or feels. If pressed, I would simply say it means an intangible feeling of joy-a coziness. It is always used in the most positive of connotation, as there is nothing better at this moment. This was overwhelming on our recent getaway to Skytop Lodge, less than a two hour drive from Wayne into the beautiful Pocono Mountains. Heard of this place? Perhaps in conversation of a short list of hotels as experiential as opposed to ‘just a stay’. Can we say in the same vein of a Sagamore, or Mohonk Mountain House? Indeed. This grand Lodge is listed on the registry of Historical Hotels and has been operating since 1928. In fact, this June marks their 87th anniversary which they plan to celebrate all the recent upgrades in style packed with fun. Gloriously nostalgic, the serene lodge warmly embraces you with all of its classic charms from a time that somehow escaped today’s culture. It resides on a gorgeous 5,500 acres of natural beauty - yours for the paddling, hiking, walking, fly fishing and golfing. However, there is more though, much more. The Lodge boasts their newly refreshed rooms, adorned classically lush, amidst a stone structure and wood interior of rustic sophistication. Stables with horses for riders of all abilities, carriage rides to breakfast on SkyTop Mountain, bonfires in the evening, and lots of opportunity for the kids to relish in activities past. Archery, lawn bowling, zip-lines, boating, fishing, pie eating contests and horse shoes are all good clean American fun! Packages for everyone are welcome WayneMagazine.com | June 2015

to make things easy, all-inclusive for the family, or simply pick and choose what you want to do. Classic Dining, (FYI...do not forget your jacket, and leave your cell behind), The Tap Room or group barbeques are all there for your pleasure. A new library bar and a third restaurant are lovingly in planning and in the construction phase. All the accoutrements in the right dosage, and are very enjoyable. Other travelers, some from afar, and some there for a corporate meeting, all had the same look of amazement when walking through the great room. We too, probably with a similar look, basked in the glow of its light and open air. Our thoughts, “this is how things are supposed to be made, this is how to do things.” Nostalgia, the warmest and reassuring, washed over us. These things, these places from our memories of youth,

took us back to when life was simpler. Times when people connected in person, told stories, played games, went for a beautiful stroll or simply sat on a rocking chair. The magnificent Skytop Lodge imbues this energy, and fulfills you in such an easy manner; breathing was easy. Looking back, and yearning to go back, wishing we could return to its embrace, or perhaps its honest aura. A snapshot of our best memories of being a kid with grass under our feet, and sun on our Kool-Aid stained faces. Take your special someone, or your kids, and connect the old fashioned way. Play some croquet, enter a sack race, ride a horse, hold a hand or lazily row a boat amongst the mountains. Find your meaning of “gazellig.” No need to bother trying to explain. We already know.
