Local, Live Concert Series: The Vindys

Local, Live concert series featuring The Vindys, Saturday, February 27, 2021.  Enjoy the concert live in the theatre, or from the comfort of your own home with live stream access.

THE VINDYS have become one of the most sought after, premier bands in the Northeast Ohio area with their unique blend of pop, jazz, and rock. They have been described as “a vibrant slice of vintage pop theatre.” (Music Connection Magazine) and “slinky, sultry, and jazzy” (Guy D’Astolfo, The Vindicator). Through the incorporation of multiple genres into one cohesive sound, The Vindys have the ability to appeal to a wide audience. Their versatility and incomparable style is one of the many reasons why The Vindys are a rarity amongst other groups. Their professional sound, as well as alluring stage presence and magnetic charisma, is supported by the band’s background and expertise in music performance, education, and production.

Personnel include Jackie Popovec on lead vocals and guitar, John Anthony on guitar and harmony vocals, Ed Davis on drums and harmony vocals, Matt Jackson on bass, and Rick Deak on guitar and harmony vocals. All are classically trained musicians from the distinguished schools of Capital University Conservatory of Music, Dana School of Music, Slippery Rock University, and Mike Curb College of Music. The Vindys combine their skills and experiences resulting in a depth and maturity in their music that is intricate, yet relatable.

Because they are a Youngstown-based band, The Vindys are passionate about representing Youngstown as a place where the music scene is thriving. Their name pays homage to their roots by drawing influence from Youngstown’s daily newspaper, The Vindicator. Brad Savage, program director of The Summit 91.3 FM, explains, “To me, they really personify Youngstown and northeast Ohio. They’ve got depth and substance and are instantly likable. Their songs get stuck in your head after one listen.” In 2019, the band performed at various festivals including LaureLive (Cleveland, OH), Winnetka Music Festival (Winnetka, IL) and Summerfest where the band won the first day of the Emerging Artist Series selected by voters on Twitter.

In 2019 the Vindys were prominently featured as part of the Pittsburgh Pirates and AT&T SportsNet “Friday Night Rocks” campaign that showcases independent bands during Pirates broadcasts. The experience has exposed the band to countless fans and have seen their Tri-State area fanbase grow tremendously. They saw a huge spike of more than 40,000 views over the course of one week when the video for “Are You Ready,” which was shot at Jergel’s Rhythm Grille in Warrendale, was shown on “Friday Night Rocks.”

Additionally, The Vindys have shared the stage with nationally recognized solo acts and groups such as Hunter Hayes, Marty Stuart, The Drive-By Truckers, Donnie Iris and the Cruisers, Michael Stanely and the Resonators, Reeve Carney, The Clarks, Red Wanting Blue, Welshly Arms, and Judah & the Lion.

Currently the Vindys are endorsed by Earthquaker Devices, Heil Sound, Ultimate Ears Pro and Innovative Percussion.

Local, Live Concert Series: Hey Monea

Local, Live concert series featuring Hey Monea, celebrating the Canton Palace Theatre’s 94th anniversary Saturday, November 21, 2020.  Enjoy the concert live in the theatre, or from the comfort of your own home with live stream access.

Hey Monea is:
Dan Monea – vocalist, guitarist, shark fisherman, foodie
Nate Monea – vocalist, drummer, MacGyverer, skeptic

Hey Monea have always been driven by a healthy sense of wanderlust – a deep desire to see the world, try new things, and to challenge the limits of what is possible. This band of tender-hearted rascals, brothers, has been bonded by three albums, years of touring and recording, and a deep love of music and desire to bring people together. They’ve played festivals all over the world including Hard Rock Calling in London (Bruce Springsteen / Lady Antebellum), The Rock Boat (Sister Hazel / Barenaked Ladies), 311 Cruise, and even performed in the Pacific Islands. In addition to traditional touring, the band travels annually to Guatemala with an organization called The Music Is Love Exchange for a week of service work and performances at schools and hospitals.

Hey Monea’s pop-leaning rock music centers around emotionality and their soaring harmonies aim directly at the heart of the human spirit. Dan and Nate were raised Jehovah’s Witnesses and it was their family’s decision to leave that community that set the boys on a path toward
pursuing deeper connection points. Every tour stop is an opportunity to meet people, be of service, an effort to build bonds with their audience. The band refers to their extended community as their “ghetto family”, and the family reunion takes place at every show. “We love what we do, and we love being on the road. Connecting with people from every corner of the world through music brings real joy to us. Everybody has a story, and we want to hear that. And we want to share ours,” says Dan Monea.

“Lipstick” is the band’s latest single, a hotly-anticipated, fan-favorite song that the band has been playing at shows for the last few years. This serves as the follow up to “We’re Gonna Be OK”, featured in the NASCAR Heat 5 video game, a rallying cry for people around the world seeking connection and reassurance in these bizarre and uncertain times. Both songs follow 2019’s successful “Drinkin’ Claws”, a tribute to the very popular summer seltzer. All of these jams were recorded and produced at Hey Monea’s home Little C Studios in Canal Fulton, OH. Dan and Nate have contributed production and mixing service to artists including Meaghan Farrell, David Higgins, Golden Dimes, and TONY-nominee Constantine Maroulis.

CANCELLED: Lip Sync Showdown: Leadership Stark County Edition

As of March 16, 2020 we are working to decide if and when the event will occur. Thank you.

The Canton Palace Theatre presents it’s third annual Lip Sync Showdown, featuring contestants from Leadership Stark County! Watch as leaders from Stark County compete in this FUNdraiser, performing songs from a variety of styles and genres. The winner will be chosen through monetary “votes” for the contestants, which means the audience chooses the winner. Join us for a fun evening at the Palace!

2020 Participants
26 BCED
Seven classes have graduated since this vivacious group of women met at Leadership orientation and now seven years later, they still remain close friends! These ladies of the 26th Class pride themselves on being the most fun, the most closely connected after graduating, and are unapologetic about being the oldest members of their class. They are Cathy Wyatt, Kathy Feichter, Lucia Pileggi, Margaret DeLillo-Storey, Kimberly Bricker, and Teresa Fedorchak. The combined age of these lip-syncing divas is 346!

A diverse group, they are business owners, health and education administrators, a counselor and a banker, but the one thing they share is the common bond they’ve formed over the years, along with a fondness of delicious food and lively conversation. They see this not only as an opportunity to help support a local treasure in the Palace Theatre, but also as an irresistible reason to hop on stage and unleash some middle-aged attitude! The group’s motto is “Our age is merely the number of years the world has been enjoying us!!”

The Leadership Bellas
The Leadership Bellas are so excited to support the Palace with our singing and dancing talent!  Here is our group and why we joined the Bellas –

Leisyl Boone (Interior designer and Stitch Fix stylist) – I secretly want to be a Diva.
Michelle Cordova (Stark County Chief Prosecuting Attorney) – It will improve my singing skills.
Brook Harless (Plain Township Trustee and retired army) – To embarrass my kids!
Pam Lung (CFO at Child & Adolescent Behavioral Health) – I left public accounting to become a Star.
Patience Moody-Rush (Coordinator of Data Compliance at the ESC of NE Ohio/Connect Info Tech Center) – I’m tired of following the rules.

#31 is the only one!

Proud 28
“Proud 28” are members of the 28th Class of Leadership Stark County (The Great 28).  They have many years of finance, coaching, leadership, engagement, resource programming, job training, marketing, branding, grant-writing, speaking, facilitating, and board experience.

Their collective hobbies include: reading, volunteering, helping others, CrossFit, travelling, spending time with their families, serving their communities, enjoying life, and having fun!

“Proud 28” lives in Canton and Massillon.  They have a combined total of 14 children and are grateful for their husbands: Corey, Dan, Emmett, and Kevin.  They are all fun-loving, full of energy, and excited to be a part of this fundraiser competition to raise money for the Palace.
