    ESPN Acquires Rights to Arena Football Starting in 2014




    CHICAGO – ESPN and the Arena Football League (AFL) have agreed to a multi-year agreement beginning in 2014. The new deal grants ESPN rights to more than 10 regular season and postseason games on its television networks per year, including ArenaBowl and one conference championship game, as well as 75 or more games annually on ESPN3, ESPN’s live multi-screen sports network. ESPN’s video player will also be available on the AFL website, ArenaFootball.com.

    The relationship between the AFL and ESPN began more than two decades ago when ESPN televised the very first ArenaBowl live in 1987. Since then, ESPN televised a combination of AFL regular season and playoff games for five years (1995-99), AFL playoff games from 2000-02 and both regular season and playoff games from 2007-08.

    Additionally, ABC presented the ArenaBowl for five years from 1998-2002. “ESPN has a long history of working with the Arena Football League and this new agreement is a great opportunity to showcase the AFL as part of our year-round commitment to football,” said Matthew Volk, ESPN director, programming and acquisitions.

    Indie Folk Artist Mason Jennings Coming To Ponte Vedra




    Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. (January 26, 2015) — The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall proudly announces that indie folk singer- songwriter Mason Jennings will perform on Sunday, March 15, 2015. Tickets for Mason Jennings will go on sale to the public this Friday, January 30 at 10 a.m.

    Before setting to work on his 10th studio album, Minnesota-based musician Mason Jennings was looking for a new approach to writing. At the advice of a friend, the singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist holed up in the back room of his wood-nestled cabin studio with just a guitar, electric piano, bookshelf, notebook, tape recorder, and one 90-minute cassette and then wrote all winter long. Emerging with the notebook and tape full of about 30 new songs, Jennings decided to skip his standard approach of self-recording and called on producer Bo Ramsey (Greg Brown, The Pines, Iris DeMent), as well as a wish-list-plucked lineup of guest musicians that includes DeMent and Neil Young drummer Chad Cromwell. The result of those “dream collaborations” and his own hard-won inspiration is the latest album Always Been, Jennings’s most radiant and refined effort of his career. Recorded at Minneapolis studio The Terrarium, Always Been builds on the rugged, acoustic-guitar...   [Read More]

    With 5 GRAMMY Awards, 15 nominations, millions of record sales worldwide, and thousands of sold out performances, rock blues icon Robert Cray is considered one of the greatest guitarists of his generation. Rolling Stone Magazine in their April 2011 issue credits Cray with reinventing the blues with his “distinct razor sharp guitar playing” that “introduced a new generation of mainstream rock fans to the language and form of the blues” with the release of his Strong Persuader album in 1986.

    Since then, Cray has gone on to record sixteen Billboard charting studio albums and has written or performed with everyone from Eric Clapton to Stevie Ray Vaughan, from Bonnie Raitt to John Lee Hooker. Inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2011 at the age of 57, he is one of the youngest living legends to receive the prestigious honor. And while he can look back ove...   [Read More]
