Mannheim Steamroller Christmas 2015

Friday, November 13, 2015 at 8 PM

Dothan Civic Center

Perhaps the moment when Mannheim Steamroller achieved mainstream success was when they released their first Christmas album in 1984 “Mannheim Steamroller Christmas”. The album was the band’s first to make it on the Billboard 200 album chart and it has been certified 6x Platinum by the RIAA. The songs on the album were almost all traditional Christmas songs presented in a synthpop oriented way and the album is one of the best selling Christmas albums in the US. In 1988 the group released “A Fresh Aire Christmas”, which followed the tradition of their symphonic pop presentation. This album surpassed their first Christmas album in sales and is one of the best selling Christmas albums of all time.

Snakes and Spiders Of Little River Canyon National Preserve

National Park Ranger Larry Beane will present “Snakes and Spiders of Little River Canyon National Preserve” at 10 AM at the Little River Canyon Center on August 8, 2015. Many visitors ask about the snakes and spiders because they are afraid of them. This one-hour program will teach visitors to recognize the beneficial snakes and spiders in and around the park. Visitors may learn the dangerous species as well. Snakes and spiders are both predators, playing an important part in controlling pesky species that bother humans. Visitors will learn about the habitats and lives of the park’s snakes and spiders. They are beautifully colored, and the patterns can tell you how dangerous or helpful they might be to you. Ranger Beane wants to help people understand these magnificent creatures to help protect them. Although people tell stories of encounters with snakes in the park, there have been very few reported snake or spider bites in the park. “You are about ten times more likely to be killed by lightning than a venomous snake bite in the United States. The best idea is leaving them alone. Knowledge and respect for these animals will keep you safe. The only snake bites I remember in 20 years at the park have been from people messing with a snake” Beane said. National Park Superintendent Steve Black and Canyon Center Director Pete Conroy invite the public to come out and enjoy the free event. For more information, call (256)845-9605. You can follow our updates and find park pictures on Facebook at “lirinps”. Post your pictures of the park with #FindYourPark and join us in our Find Your Park Campaign. So go, get out, and "Find Your Park!” For more information on “Find Your Park,” go to findyourpark.com, #findyourpark, or #nationalparks.

Rickie Lee Jones at Alys Stephens

Finally. Rickie Lee Jones is coming back to Birmingham! The ASC is thrilled to present the Grammy-winning singer-songwriter for an evening of musical reminiscing and exploration. Her latest album and first new music in over a decade, The Other Side of Desire was written, recorded, and rooted in New Orleans. "This work is inspired by many years of sitting with all the events of my life until I had something to paint with. I came to New Orleans to write and to live a different way than what I have known on the West Coast .. Here is another record then, made of my imagination, and whatever else that has no words, using the clay of this place and the shapes of my eyes to form some kind of picture of my life, or my heart, that I alone can understand, and hopefully that others can enjoy."
