Last week, The Main Squeeze was posted up in the Big Easy, joining the other hundreds of musicians who flocked to the city for New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. On May 3rd, the band took to Blue Nile, to celebrate the festival and the city. During their performance, as is the Jazz Fest way, a special guest came out and joined them — Shaun Martin of Snarky Puppy — sitting in on keys for part of their performance.The Main Squeeze,Spafford, Aqueous, And More To Play First Ever Canyon Jam At The MishawakaToday, The Main Squeeze just released a video of this collaboration via their “Squeeze Cam,” giving us folks a chance to see part of their performance from the stage looking out at the crowd.

Kiss has officially announced the first leg of their “End of the Road World Tour”, which they say will be their last ever. The band’s current lineup features original members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons as well as Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer. After a 45-year career, the band’s initial retirement announcement was made on an episode of NBC’s America’s Got Talent after performing their hit “Detroit Rock City” to open the show’s season finale.The first leg of Kiss’s “End of the Road World Tour” will span from January 31st through July 16th, 2019 across two continents, with stops in North America, the U.K., Europe, and Russia. The original announcement stated that their final shows will be part of a multi-year “End of the Road” world tour, so stay tuned for more announcements. Pre-sale tickets will open up tomorrow at 10 a.m. local time, with a general on-sale this Friday, November 2nd. Head to the band’s website for more information.Kiss expressed in a press statement:All that we have built and all that we have conquered over the past four decades could never have happened without the millions of people worldwide who’ve filled clubs, arenas and stadiums over those years. This will be the ultimate celebration for those who’ve seen us and a last chance for those who haven’t. KISS Army, we’re saying goodbye on our final tour with our biggest show yet and we’ll go out the same way we came in… Unapologetic and Unstoppable.Don’t forget, though, that this is actually the second time that Kiss has called it quits. The band had their first “farewell tour” in 2000 and 2001. As Rolling Stone previously pointed out, bassist Gene Simmons said in 2000, “There just aren’t any more mountains to climb. We want to go out in style with the people that put us here, the fans.” While band members returned to the road a mere two years later under the Kiss moniker, that was the final tour that featured all four original members.In 2002, guitarist Paul Stanley said: “People change their minds, and in this case that goes along with being a living, thinking person. What one says one day with total commitment may at another time turn out not to be so. Am I doing this for the money or the fans? Both, and let’s not forget I’m doing this for me.”The four original members, Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Peter Criss, and Ace Frehley, appeared together in 2014 for their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, though they did not perform together.However, Stanley seems to think a real reunion is not out of the question. As Consequence of Sound reminds us, Stanley recently said, “This will be a celebration of KISS and not any individual lineup or any individual members. I wouldn’t rule anything out.”For more information on the upcoming “End of the Road World Tour”, head to Kiss’s official website.KISS 2019 Tour Dates:01/31 – Vancouver, BC @ Rogers Arena02/01 – Portland, OR @ Moda Center02/02 – Tacoma, WA @ Tacoma Dome02/04 – Spokane, WA @ Spokane Arena02/07 – San Diego, CA @ Viejas Arena02/08 – Fresno, CA @ Save Mart Arena02/09 – Sacramento, CA @ Golden 1 Center02/12 – Anaheim, CA @ Honda Center02/13 – Glendale, AZ @ Gila River Arena02/15 – Las Vegas, NV @ T-Mobile Arena02/16 – Los Angeles, CA @ The Forum02/19 – Corpus Christi, TX @ American Bank Center02/21 – Dallas, TX @ American Airlines Center02/22 – New Orleans, LA @ Smoothie King Center02/23 – Memphis, TN @ Fedex Forum02/26 – Oklahoma City, OK @ Chesapeake Energy Arena02/27 – Kansas City, MO @ Sprint Center03/01 – Milwaukee, WI @ Fiserv Forum03/02 – Chicago, IL @ United Center03/04 – Minneapolis, MN @ Target Center03/06 – Sioux Falls, SD @ Denny Sanford Premier Center03/07 – Omaha, NE @ Centurylink Center03/09 – Grand Rapids, MI @ Van Andel Arena03/10 – Moline, IL @ Taxslayer Center03/12 – Louisville, KY @ KFC!

Homeowners aren’t the only ones taking advantage of low interest rates these days.Vancouver is poised to refinance up to $16 million in debt from its 2003 construction of the Firstenburg Community Center to save up to $800,000 in interest, Vancouver Chief Financial Officer Lloyd Tyler said.The city council approved the first reading of the refinancing ordinance Monday night; a public hearing and final vote will be Oct. 3.Last year, Vancouver paid $26.2 million on its debt, including $9.5 million in interest. Vancouver “has been proactively monitoring interest rates over the past 10 years and has refinanced debt to reduce payments whenever market conditions were right,” Tyler wrote in an email.Vancouver borrowed $18.5 million to finance the construction of the east side recreation center in 2003 at an interest rate of 4.43 percent.Since 2001, the city’s refinanced more than $54 million in general obligation bonds — paid from the city’s general fund — which reduced debt payments by more than $3.1 million, Tyler said. The city’s average borrowing cost for its long-term general obligation bonds is about 4.2 percent. Water and sewer utility debt is paid off through utility rates, but also has a much higher debt load.Vancouver has refinanced more than $100 million in those bonds, which reduced debt payments by more than $5.4 million. The average borrowing cost on its long-term utility revenue bonds is slightly less than 4.1 percent.But the federal issue of debt has also trickled to local discussions, with candidates and city councilors sharing their concerns.Future water, sewer workAlso on Monday, the city’s public works officials discussed a plan to move future water and sewer line expansion and maintenance projects to a pay-as-you-go system.
