Warren Miller Road Crew Delivers More Than Just Entertainment

Warren Miller Plunge crew

Ashleigh Tucker Pollock and I got a chance to take an icy dip in the Atlantic this afternoon with the road crew from Warren Miller. The crew, Dan Ohnsman, Sid Howard, Andrew Parker, and Colin Barry spend their fall on the road doing the great work of getting everyone excited about the ski season that is coming downhill at us fast.

While they are in town, they are not just here for the show. The Portsmouth Polar Plunge is also a food drive for The Rotary Club Thanksgiving Dinner. Every year this crew spends their Thanksgiving on the Seacoast away from their families. While many folks would hole up in their hotel, or pine for the mountains or home, they volunteer their time at the Turkey Dinner. And they have done this without fanfare for the last three years. We are so grateful for a fun bunch that also gives back. Thanks guys!

Catch Warren Miller Chasing Shadows on the big screen tonight, Wednesday Nov. 25 at 6 or 9pm. More info/tickets

Membership Monday:  Rockingham Electric Gives the Gift of Membership

With Thanksgiving fast approaching, I keep thinking about how grateful I am to work at The Music Hall, in fact I’ve referenced it frequently in my #30DaysofGratitude posts. In my year and a half here, I am constantly reminded how lucky I am not only to work at The Music Hall, but to also be a member. What I find most striking is how many people believe so much in our product that they give the gift of membership as well.

For the past 10 years, I have had the distinct privilege of sitting in the best seat in the house for The Music Hall’s “Writers On A New England Stage” series.

Well, to be accurate, I’ve been sitting in one of the three best seats in the house, up on stage, with the other guys in the house band for the series, Dreadnaught.*
