This past Thursday and Friday night, Prescott, AZ’s electro-funk masters Spafford came into town for a strong two-night stand to kick off their tour on the right note. Thursday saw support from Bozeman, MT-based jamgrass outfit the Kitchen Dwellers at The Fox Theatre in Boulder. Both acts, that come from different ends of the jam spectrum were put to the test, and passed with flying colors.The Dwellers played a solid set, debuting new material off their forthcoming album that is produced by Leftover Salmon‘s Andy Thorn, who also joined the band on stage during the latter part of their set. Kitchen Dwellers are playing NYC’s American Beauty on Friday, November 11th (get info here).Spafford highlights from the first night included an uber-funky “Electric Taco Stand” and cover of swamp-rock master JJ Grey & Mofro‘s “On Fire” into “Galisteo”. It was a solid opening night, that saw the four-piece locked in, cohesive, and fully prepped to bring serious jams to the table.Kitchen Dwellers w/ Andy Thorn:Spafford “On Fire” (JJ Grey & Mofro cover):By the second night, the band was pumped up and firing on all cylinders, bringing a packed crowd to Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver. With two lengthy sets, the band was able to exercise their full potential, jamming to perfection for nearly four hours. Set one was highlighted by a trancey dance jam on “Ain’t That Wrong”, followed by a double time version of the Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ “Soul To Squeeze”. By the second set, Spafford had longtime and new fans hooked, building strong, patient jams on “People” and later on set closer and fan favorite “Backdoor Funk”.Spafford Cervantes Other Side Set 1:Spafford Cervantes Other Side Set 2:Kitchen Dwellers Setlist – The Fox – 9/22/16Farmers Son, Colder Nights, Auggie Visions, Broken Cage (New Song), Five Candles, Reuben’s train*, Up on the Hill Where They Do the Boogie*^, This Time> No Diggity+* with Andy Thorn in fiddle^John Hartford Cover+Blackstreet CoverSpafford Setlist – The Fox – 9/22/16All In, Electric Taco Stand, Slip, On Fire > Galisteo, America, The RepriseSpafford Setlist – Cervante’s Other Side – 9/23/16Set One – All My Friends > Bee Jam > Windmill, Into The Mystic, Ain’t That Wrong, Soul To Squeeze, The PostmanSet Two – Red’s Jam > People, Plans > Down Under, Todd’s Tots, The Remedy > Down Under, Backdoor FunkEncore – Hollywood > In The Eyes of Thieves[The Fox photos courtesy of Peter Wallace @ Wallyography – Instagram: Wallyographypw][Cervantes photos by Randhir Bayers] Load remaining images

He keeps the credit union … Web: www.cuinsight.com Details In your lifetime, you’re going to work with someone who you won’t get along with. Often, it’s a personality conflict. Usually when two personalities clash, both parties are partially to blame. If you find yourself in this situation, here are a few tips for getting past the conflict and moving forward.Keep it on the down-low: Obviously when there’s some conflict, you need to find a resolution. The best thing you can do in the process, is to not let it cause division among your fellow employees. When lines are drawn, and allies and enemies are made, it’ll make it ten times harder to resolve the situation. Don’t make it tougher than it has to be.Take five: A back in forth argument usually won’t get you anywhere. You’ll get emotional and will ignore logic and reason. Take a minute to get your thoughts organized and turn those reactions into responses. A clear head always helps when trying to resolve a conflict.Two rights make an argument: You’ve probably heard that “there’s more than one way to skin a cat.” While this phrase is weird and puzzling to small children, it’s also right on the money. There’s often more than one way to be successful at a task. Remember when you find yourself in a conflict, that people see things differently and neither way is necessarily wrong.

Comments Syracuse opens its season with Lehigh on Friday night at 7 p.m. in the Carrier Dome. Here’s how the beat writers think the Orange will fare to begin the new year.Sam Blum (0-0)Syracuse 72, Lehigh 65Top of the MountainSyracuse basketball is back, baby. And this season, there aren’t any postseason bans to nullify the good play that will come its way. The Orange starts the season off right, sneaking by a solid Lehigh team that is picked to win the Patriot League. The Orange establishes its 3-point-heavy offense from the start and rides it to Taco Time.Jesse Dougherty (0-0)Syracuse 69, Lehigh 58Ball hawkingIn the first look at the 2015-16 Orange, Syracuse shoots well enough to let its defense close out the game. Sharpshooter Austin Price and stretch forward Tim Kempton are typical zone busters, but they aren’t quite good enough to close the talent gap between the two teams. SU’s length atop the zone turns into easy points in crunch time, and that yields a relatively easy win.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textMatt Schneidman (0-0)Syracuse 81, Lehigh 60Grand openingWe’re going to see a fast-paced Syracuse team put up more points this year and Friday will be the first look at that. Even if Dajuan Coleman is still shaking off rust, Trevor Cooney, Michael Gbinije and Malachi Richardson do enough from behind the arc to send the Mountain Hawks back to Pennsylvania with a loss.
