revueThe Red Roots, Godspell in Concert, and William Faulkner interpreter,John Maxwell will be featured on the nationally syndicated radio program, The Sucarnochee Revue,  7 p.m.  Friday, August 28 at the University of West Alabama’s Bibb Graves Auditorium in Livingston,Alabama.
The Red Roots are triplet sister Bluegrass singers from Hurley,Mississippi. Nika Taylor is featured on guitar, lead vocals, and mandolin. Nicole plays banjo, dobro, bass, drums, and Natalie alternates between violin, keyboard,and  bass.
Godspell in Concert is a group of local singers and musicians under the direction of John Brown of York,Alabama. “Godspell” (an archaic spelling of the word gospel) is a 1970 musical by Stephen Schwartz and John-Michael Tebelak. It opened off Broadway on May 17, 1971, and has played in various touring companies and revivals many times since.
John Maxwell spent years reading letters and the biography Faulkner by Joseph Blotner. His co-writer for his show on William Faulkner was Tom DuPree, now of  New York City.

“Faulkner’s rich characterizations always seemed to me ideal for a theatrical piece,” says Maxwell, who received the Best Actor Award for the screen version of the Faulkner show in the 2006 Atlanta Film Festival.
Now in its fifth year of production, The Sucarnochee Revue presents authentic music from the Black Belt region of Alabama,and Mississippi. The show not only preserves original music and the works by original artists, but also captures the evolution of that music and its current generation of performers. The Sucarnochee Revue also tapes in Meridian,Mississippi at the Temple Theatre the first Friday night of each month.
“What surprises people about the show is the fantastic range of musical genres,” producer and host Jacky Jack White said. “We have blues, jazz, Dixieland, gospel, bluegrass, classical, country and more. Historically, there is an incredible amount of talent in the area.”
The Sucarnochee Revue regulars include Revue producer and host Jacky Jack White, J. Burton Fuller, Britt Gully, and Mississippi Chris Sharp and the Jangalang String Band.
General admission to The Sucarnochee Revue is $5. For more information, contact White at 205-652-6680.

Posted by: | Comments (0)

taxA Sales Tax Holiday is a temporary period when sales taxes are not collected or paid on purchases of specific products and/or services.

“This Sales Tax Holiday is targeted tax relief aimed at spurring economic growth and has been introduced every year since 2000 by Senator Walter Michel,” stated Lt. Governor Phil Bryant. “Senator Michel understands as we continue through these tough economic times how important it is to give back to the hardworking Mississippians.”

According to the Sales Tax Holiday passed in the 2009 Legislative Session, sales tax is not due on the sale of articles of clothing or footwear if:

• The sales price of a single item is less than $100, and

• The sale takes place between 12:01 a.m. Friday, and midnight Saturday.

Clothing is defined as any article of apparel designed to be worn on the human body including pants, shirts and blouses, dresses, coats, jackets, belts, hats, undergarments, and multiple piece garments sold as a set.

Footwear is any article of apparel for human feet except for skis, swim fins, roller blades, skates, and any similar items.

Accessories including jewelry, handbags, luggage, umbrellas, wallets, watches, backpacks, briefcases, and similar items do not qualify for the Sales Tax Holiday.
