(which featured the typically arch track "All of California and Everyone Who Lives There Stinks") and April 2002's Just the Best Party (featuring another WIFS classic, "I Wouldn't Want to Live in a World Without Grudges") The live album Hallowmas Live at Northsix appeared in August 2003 Three years later, the group returned with the EP Speak of Brave Men in January and the full-length Red-Eyed Soul that July, the latter marking their debut on Chunksaah Erik Hage

    The Grand 1894 Opera House welcomes keyboard marvel and Galveston favorite Rob Landes at the Allen Organ, performing his specially-created, totally-improvised musical score for the showing of  Lon Chaney’s 1925 silent film masterpiece, The Phantom of the Opera, Saturday, November 1 at 8 pm Before the age of digital sound and computerized special effects, silent film actors transported audiences to worlds of romance, comedy, adventure, and horror, without uttering a single word! Film star Lon Chaney’s transformative (and highly secretive) makeup techniques earned him the nickname "The Man of a Thousand Faces" Combined with his exceptional acting abilities, Chaney created iconic big-screen characters that made him one of early Hollywood’s biggest box office stars The earliest “sound” accompaniment to silent films was provided by a lone piano soloist, who improvised or performed compilations of classical or theatrical musical repertoire Prior to the addition of orchestral musicians, it was the massive theatre organ that expanded the emotional content of the silent film, thrilling audiences with a wide range of simulated orchestral sounds and special effects ranging from galloping horses to rolling thunder!

    Cypress Creek FACE presents The Four Freshmen The Four Freshmen were one of the top vocal groups of the 1950s, and formed the bridge between '40s ensembles like Mel-Tones and harmony-based rock & roll bands such as the Beach Boys as well as groups like Spanky & Our Gang and the Manhattan Transfer The group's roots go back to the end of the 1940s and a barbershop quartet-influenced outfit called Hal's Harmonizers, organized at the Arthur Jordan Conservatory of Butler University in Indiana by two brothers, Ross and Don Barbour Their repertoire centered on standards such as "Moonglow" and "The Christmas Song," and they began to show an unusually free, improvisational approach to their harmony singing Their first hit single was "It's a Blue World," released in 1952, and they enjoyed further success with "Mood Indigo" (1954), "Day By Day" (1955), and "Graduation Day" (1956) They released their first LP, Voices in Modern, in 1955 (and some dozen more 12" discs over the next five years); that album was as impressive a jazz document as it was a vocal pop effort, showcasing the group members' playing as well as their singing and showing that these guys had lots of complex musical strings in their bow New lineups of the group have continued to perform into the 21st century and are considered an artistically valid ensemble — in 2000 the Four Freshmen were voted Vocal Group of the Year by Down Beat magazine's readers And in 2001, no less a label than Mosaic Records — the company that issues complete catalogs of jazz legends going back to the 1930s, in deluxe packaging -- released a multi-CD box of the Four Freshmen's complete 1950s recordings, proudly (and even defiantly, given the label's catalog) proclaiming the quartet's validity as a jazz outfit Today's lineup includes Brian Eichenberger, Stein Malvey, Curtis Calderon, and Bob Ferreira
