Violet Jam presents: Robin Zander Band

What do musicians do when they're not playing music?

Look for opportunities to play more music.

And that's the simple story behind the new Robin Zander Band, comprised of Cheap Trick frontman Zander, drummer Steve Luongo, guitarist Mark Hitt and bassist Larry Hobbs.

What emerges on any given night is anyone's guess - including, it seems, the musicians' who paused mid-interview to bandy about some ideas. In seriousness, though, the beauty of creating a new band out of longtime musical friends is that they have decades of experience from which to pull.

There's no precise road map set for The Robin Zander Band; members are just eager to take the stage and see what emerges. "We'll just go wherever it takes us," Zander says. Their set naturally includes Zander's solo material, a few Cheap Trick hits and also nods to Luongo's past touring days with "Who" bassist John Entwistle. Add to that RZB's passion for real rock and roll and the stage is set for an anything goes performance including special guest artists.

Doors 7p. DJ 7p-9p. RZB 9p-11p. Food can be purchased through our Restaurant, Pantry and Violet Thorn. Drinks can be purchased through our cash bars or at the Violet Thorn.

Income Acceleration Formula Workshop: 5 Keys To Accelerate Your Own Income In The Next 6 Months
INCOME ACCELERATION 
FORMULA WORKSHOP5 Keys to Accelerate Your Own 
Income in the Next 6 MonthsAt this live evening workshop, you will discover how to:
  1. Confidently answer the question, "How much do you charge?"
  2. Break free of your "money mess" (those old stories and beliefs) and become a "money magnet."
  3. Set your own "magic price point" for your products, programs and services... and quit looking around to see what everyone else is charging!
  4. Stop making deals, trades and discounts that lower both your self-esteem and the value of your services.
  5. Take back your power and become the boss of your money.
  6. Radically increase your income in the next 6 months and beyond!

This workshop is perfect for you if you:

  • Resist raising your prices or giving yourself a raise.
  • Get squirmy when you have to put a price on your services, products or programs.
  • Avoid the "money conversation" like the plague.
  • Quickly give a discount or offer a trade rather than simply ask for your full fee.
  • Try to "guess" what your clients can and can't afford, and charge accordingly.

If any or all of those apply to you, you must come to The Income Acceleration Formula Workshop.

Otherwise, you'll keep leaving WAY too much money on the table!

Suzanne Vega

An inviolable purity of heart tinged with mystery and a faraway melancholy distills the sensibility of a diarist warily scrutinizing the world around her with a journalist's eye. New York Times Grammy-winner Suzanne Vega led the folk revival of the 80s with her platinum-selling eponymous debut album, one of Rolling Stone magazine's top 100 albums of the decade. A true artist, Vega is a master at crafting song lyrics and melodies to inspire and connect. With early hits like "Tom's Diner" and "Luka," Vega shaped an entire generation of singer-songwriters; with her "Close-Up" series, which re-records her catalogue in an intimate and stripped down way, she continues to reinvent and expose new power in each of her songs. Tales From the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles, her 2014 release and the first studio album of new material in seven years from the singer/songwriter, features 10 new songs, each telling a story that has to do with the material world and the world of the spirit and how they intersect. Suzanne spent the past few years writing and recording these new gems on the road, recording portions in Chicago, London, Prague, LA and New York City, and Kyserike Station, an old train station in upstate New York. Tracking for the album took place mostly at the Clubhouse Studios in Rhinebeck, and the album was mixed by Kevin Killen, who has worked with Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush. Also Appearing: Ari Hest As a courtesy to patrons, wine and beer will be served at this performance.
