Alabama ShakesAfter spending years touring in various rock, blues and funk bands, Craig had to part with his beloved Hammond B3 organ and Leslie. However, the organ is going to a very good home, and that makes us very happy. After all, a Hammond needs to be played!! The band, Alabama Shakes, pulled up in their touring bus and loaded it on the way to their next gig. A special thanks to Shane Haase for all of the coordination that went into making this happen.
Kara at the Dublin Irish Festival FeisAfter several years of dancing with Millennium Academy, Kara entered her first adult competition at the Columbus Feis, which was held during the 2013 Dublin Irish Festival. She co-designed her dress, which was then created from scratch by the amazing Maureen McCardel of Frenzy Universe. Kara thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience and ended up winning second place in her soft shoe reel. She plans to compete again in the future.
