    EICC project will have ‘huge impact’

    Quad-City Times- The boss will have to give up his view.

    Don Doucette, chancellor of Eastern Iowa Community Colleges, has one of the best office views in Davenport — on the second floor of a downtown building that barely exists on the public’s radar. Most people walking or driving past the Transit Center at 306 W. River Drive, which is across from the Freight House, would notice one thing: buses.

    River Roots Live 10th Anniversary August 15 & 16

    River Roots Live, the Quad Cities premiere music festival, celebrates it’s ten year anniversary this weekend. The 2014 lineup features headliners Los Lonely Boys, Robert Randolph & the Family Band and the North Mississippi Allstars.  As always, Ribfest vendors from across the country will be serving up delicious BBQ throughout the weekend.

    River Roots Live will be held on Friday, Aug. 15 and Saturday, Aug. 16 in Davenport’s LeClaire Park on the banks of the beautiful Mississippi River.  The festival is free both nights before 5 p.m. and admission is only $10 after 5 p.m.

    Additional outstanding national acts fill out the festival including ZZ Ward, Ben Kweller, Cracker, The Jayhawks, Foxy Shazam, the Ballroom Thieves, Mr. Baber’s Neighbors, Twins, and Robert Jon & the Wreck.  The Quad Cities’ own talent will also be showcased when the One Night Standards and The Dawn take the stage.

    Grammy Award winners and American Chicano rock power trio Los Lonely Boys will headline Saturday night.  Hailing from Texas, Los Lonely Boys are a sibling trio whose music draws equally from Rock, Blues, Tex-Mex, Conjunto and Tejano. After recording their debut album at Willie Nelson’s studio in 2003, the single “Heaven” started climbing the charts with the album selling double Platinum.

    Friday night of River Roots Live will feature Robert Randolph & the Family Band, a funk and soul band led by pedal steel guitarist, Robert Randolph.  This high energy, festival staple band was described by the President of Blue Note Records as having “mastered what is, arguably, the most complex instrument in the world and developed a unique voice that is equal parts street-corner and Bonnaroo.” This is a high energy band that will leave you breathless and wanting more!

    The North Mississippi Allstars formed in 1996; the product of a special time for modern Mississippi country blues. Brothers Luther and Cody Dickinson soaked up the music of their father, Memphis legend Jim Dickinson, and absorbed the North Mississippi legacy while playing and shaking it down in the juke joints with their blues ancestors. R.L. Burnside, Junior Kimbrough, Otha Turner and their musical families were at their peak, making classic records and touring the world. Eventually, Luther (guitar, vocals) and Cody (drums, vocals) formed the North Mississippi Allstars and pioneered their own brand of blues-infused rock and roll. Brothers Luther and Cody continually expand the tradition of the Mississippi hill country blues that has inspired them from the beginning, but as Rolling Stone aptly notes, “the Allstars may be children of tradition, but they’re digging deep in undiscovered country”.

    On her way to River Roots Live, ZZ Ward will be showcased at Bonnaroo, Summerfest and Red Rocks this summer.  Live, ZZ’s smoky vocals and deliberate, varied arrangements make her one not to miss.  Last year, she toured with Fitz and the Tantrums, Grace Potter, Gary Clark, Jr. and Allen Stone and this year launched multiple near sell-out U.S. headline tours.

    Ben Kweller has been called everything from balladeer to punk rocker, anti-folker to indie-popper. His ability to weave together opposites that coexist happily on the same album is something few can do.

    American alternative rockers Cracker will take the stage on Saturday.  Formed in 1991 the band has released 10 studio albums including the gold-selling album, Kerosene Hat, which included hit song “Low.”

    The Jayhawks have been described as forging a rootsy sound that wasn’t quite rock or country – “Hank Williams on speed.” That sentiment can be heard on such hits as “Save it for a Rainy Day”, “Blue” and “Waiting for the Sun.”

    Named one of the “100 bands you need to know” by Alternative Press, Foxy Shazam has been showing off their rock chops since 2004.  Lead singer Eric Sean Nally says “When I listen to a Foxy Shazam record I think of Evel Knievel; Bruce Springsteen; my childhood; Van Morrison; my old friends from high school I don’t talk to anymore; Elton John; the ’50s, ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, and beyond; Iggy Pop; and my first kiss.”

    Rounding out this year’s lineup will be the Ballroom Thieves, Mr. Baber’s Neighbors, Twins, Robert Jon & the Wreck, the One Night Standards and The Dawn.

    It wouldn’t be River Roots Live without Ribfest BBQ!  This isn’t your neighbor burning some hotdogs and calling it BBQ.   Our vendors travel the nation and represent the top tier of professional BBQ cookers in the United States.  So loosen your belt, and we suggest trying every single one of ‘em throughout the weekend.

    The West Music Jr. Jam Tent returns both Friday and Saturday to offer fun educational workshops for kids and performances from the River Music Experience’s Rock Camp bands.

    With well over 20,000 attendees, River Roots Live has continued to grow every year since its inception in 2005. For complete details regarding band bios and festival activities, please visit RiverRootsLive.com.

    Produced by the Downtown Davenport Partnership, a division of Quad Cities Chamber, River Roots Live is supported by partners Living Lands & Waters and the River Music Experience – all nonprofit organizations.  River Roots Live is proud to help promote music education programs at the River Music Experience, environmental clean-up efforts on the Mississippi River by Living Lands & Waters, and the growth of historic downtown Davenport.

    River Roots Live is presented by U.S. Cellular and the Riverboat Development Authority. Please visit www.RiverRootsLive.com to see the complete list of our generous community sponsors!

    Artisan Grain Distillery – New Business

    Doing It In Davenport- Downtown Davenport will be even more “spirited” soon, with micro-distillery Artisan Grain readying to open right next door to the all-ready-thriving Great River Brewery.

The tractor business will continue to operate out of the back of the historic 8,600-square-foot building on 2nd Street, while the front of the building is in the midst of a transformation into a visitor-friendly distillery and tasting room/gift shop.
