Who’s your hero? And a conversation with a real one from Folds of Honor (November 2019)

This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs! What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20….or longer in this case, because..well…beer! In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!

Today, we continue our monthly series (no set schedule other than monthly) about beer.  We have a huge distributer of beer right here in Annapolis–Katcef Brothers Inc. and they have a ton of experts on hand to de-mystify beer for us.  Now, full disclosure–I like beer! I like beer a lot!  But, I am not a beer snob and a Bud Light will suit me just fine.

This month is not so much about beer. Well, OK Budweiser Black Lager, but… it is all about heroes. Once again, Katcef Brothers and the Military Bowl have teamed up and want to know who your hero is so you can have a shot at a VIP experience at the Military Bowl. See below for dates and locations!

But we also talk to a real hero today. Rocky Sickmann was a Marine who spent 444 days in captivity in Tehran in the Iranian Hostage Crisis back in 1979.  Today, he is retired from a civilian life with Budweiser and spearheads the company’s relationship to  Folds of Honor which provides scholarships to to the millions of military dependents affected by war.As Rocky says– Freedom is not free.

Rocky will be at the Navy SMU game this Saturday where he along with Katcef Brothers will present a check to Folds of Honor!

Please have a listen!

Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream. And so did Tee Adams!  And in January, on Dr. King’s birthday, that dream will become a reality with the performance of an original musical at Maryland Hall– The Other Side of King: A Musical.

Adams and playwright Kevin Smith have put together a musical snapshot of the Dr. King few know–the man at home, at church, and at the barber shop. All accompanied by a 50 voice choir!

The performance is FREE at Maryland Hall on January 15, 2020. Tickets are not yet available, so keep your ears open.

But, their other venture is coming up at Maryland Hall– An Open Mic Night — A Tribute to 90s R&B featuring Tao Soprano from Dru Hill! Tickets are available now for the November 21st evening at the Bowen Theater at Maryland Hall.

As for this crabcake–have a listen as we speak with two of the visionaries that are working with the community to bring Art For All!

And… if you are planning an event and need some lighting…. check out the magic that Mama Tee does with lights at Light It Up With Triple A!

And Kevin aside from writing this musical, he handles artist and music management for various music artists with his company Project 1440.
