Praised by the likes of The New York Times, the BBC and even Ray Charles, a cappella "rock band" the House Jacks create a full-band sound with only their five voices. The wildly talented quintet has shared the stage with James Brown, Train, LL Cool J, and Crosby, Stills and Nash, and played venues from Carnegie Hall to Candlestick Park. They also have given voice to the soundtrack for NBC's The Sing-Off, ESPN's Monday Night Football and radio's Rick Dees' Weekly Top 40. The group's exciting repertoire features original tunes and covers, including songs by the Beatles, Led Zeppelin and more. Local teen group 'Til Dawn opens the show. Learn More

Jill Scott and Rocky Anderson were good and their positions are understandable & desirable. Unfortunately, their audience was limited. Process was boring and repetitive but the messages were necessary. Not enough debate and too much lecturing.

Amy Goodman and Denis Moynihan began writing a weekly column, “Breaking the Sound Barrier,” for King Features Syndicate in 2006. This timely new sequel to Goodman’s New York Times bestseller of the same name gives voice to the many ordinary people standing up to corporate and government power—and refusing to be silent. The Silenced Majority pulls back the veil of corporate media reporting to dig deep into the politics of “climate apartheid,” the implications of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the movement to halt the execution of Troy Anthony Davis, and the globalization of dissent “From Tahrir Square to Liberty Plaza.” Throughout Goodman and Moynihan show the work of ordinary people to change their media—and change the world.
Amy Goodman is an award-winning investigative journalist and syndicated columnist, author and the host of Democracy Now! airing on more than 1,000 public television and radio stations in 35 countries. Goodman is the first journalist to receive the Right Livelihood Award, widely known as the ‘Alternative Nobel Prize’ for “developing an innovative model of truly independent grassroots political journalism that brings to millions of people the alternative voices that are often excluded by the mainstream media.” The Independent of London named Amy Goodman and Democracy Now! “an inspiration”; pulsemedia.org placed Goodman at the top of their 20 Top Global Media Figures. Goodman is the author of four New York Times bestsellers, including her latest, Breaking the Sound Barrier. She co-authored the first three bestsellers, Standing Up to the Madness, Static, and The Exception to the Rulers, with her brother, journalist David Goodman.
