The legendary Dr. John is a six-time GRAMMY® Award-winning musician and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee. Known throughout the world as the embodiment of New Orleans’ musical legacy, Dr. John is a true icon in American culture. His colorful musical career began in the 1950s when he wrote and played guitar on some of the greatest records to come out of the Crescent City, including recordings by Professor Longhair, Art Neville, Joe Tex and Frankie Ford.

A legend was born with his breakthrough 1968 album Gris-Gris, which introduced to the world his unique blend of voodoo mysticism, funk, rhythm & blues, psychedelic rock and Creole roots. Several of his many career highlights include the masterful album Sun, Moon and Herbs in 1971 which included cameos from Eric Clapton and Mick Jagger and 1973’s In the Right Place, which contained the chart hits “Right Place Wrong Time” and “Such A Night.”


Have a Heart for Horse’s – Hope’s Legacy

Sunday, February 14th 2016 - 6:00 pm
at King Family Vineyard
6550 Roseland Farm

Hope’s Legacy will host “Have a Heart for Horses” Benefit Sunday, February 14, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. at King Family Vineyards in Crozet, VA. The event will feature dinner by Harvest Moon Catering, drinks, a silent auction and dancing with music by Charlottesville’s favorite super 80’s bluegrass hits machine, Love Canon.

Established in 2008, Hope’s Legacy is a non-profit all-breed rescue working to save horses, mules and donkeys from a variety of situations including, but not limited to: abuse, abandonment, neglect, slaughter. In some cases, owners can no longer care for these animals. Hope’s Legacy steps in to find new, safe homes.

Most recently, the organization has taken on the care of many horses from the Peaceable Farm case in Orange County. Caring for 35 horses, which more than doubles the total number of horses that Hope’s Legacy usually oversees, the rescue is forced to increase its fundraising needs. Looking towards the future, Hope’s Legacy is looking to find and secure property to accommodate their current horses and future rescues.

Small Business Brands

Tuesday, February 16th 2016 - 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
at UVA Inn at Darden
100 Darden Blvd

Is a small business brand really that different from a big business brand?

Many of the brand questions that keep a small business owner up at night are the same as those facing a Fortune 500 CEO. Sure, the scope might be a little different, but issues like conviction, consistency, relevancy and activation are shared across companies of all sizes. At our first Cville AMA event of 2016, a leading brand expert will discuss some of the branding strategies that could be useful for your company.


About the Speaker: Caley Cantrell, Heads of Communications Strategy at the VCU Brandcenter

Over the course of her advertising career Caley Cantrell (@CaleyCantrell) has worked on a wide range of products across numerous categories. From beauty to banking. Twinkies to telecom; cruise lines, cars and cameras; video games to Homeland Security: she’s “proud to be a generalist!”
