This tour will actually reunite ELP ON STAGE through modern technology. After exploring the idea of a hologram tour in detail, Carl Palmer (with the Estates of Keith Emerson and Greg Lake) opted for what they felt was a more honest approach using live footage of Keith and Greg on massive video walls alongside Carl (and his band) playing LIVE on stage. The voice and instrumentation of Greg Lake and the unmistakable keyboard mastery of Keith Emerson will be mixed with Palmer’s onstage live drumming to magically reunite ELP once again. Paul McCartney’s duet with John Lennon at the end of his recent Got Back tour is a good idea of what ELP fans can expect from this show.
Emerson and Lake passed away nine months apart in 2016, leaving Palmer to carry on the band’s enormous musical legacy. “About five years ago I explored the idea of trying to reunite the band using digital holograms,” said Carl Palmer. “We saw a few shows of other artists, but it did not seem like an honest approach. Then we realized the film we made of ELP’s sold out run at London’s Royal Albert Hall in 1992 had everything we needed. We were able to use just the camera shots of Keith and Greg, with the sterling audio tracks of their performances resulting in a combination of film and onstage performance that brings back the magic of ELP.” The tour is being launched with the full approval of the Emerson and Lake Estates, as well as the various managers who have represented the members of the band.
After establishing themselves in bands such as The Nice, King Crimson, and The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, ELP was formed in early 1970 as one of rock’s first (and biggest) supergroups. With record sales of over 50 million and decades of sold-out tours through the 1970s and again in the 1990s, Emerson Lake & Palmer has remained one of the best-selling classic rock bands of all time. The band’s complete recorded catalog, now under the direction and distribution of BMG MUSIC, continues to be a steady force on the international music scene. The tour will coincide with the new BMG box set of classic ELP hit singles pressed on vinyl with reproductions of the original picture sleeves.

What kid hasn’t dreamed of creating the perfect playhouse? That age-old desire could actually come to life for ten lucky children through the Imagination Creation contest at Eastwood Mall. Children ages of 6-14 will be able to draw their own designs for one-story playhouses. A panel of judges will select the ten best designs and local contractors will turn those drawings into real playhouses. The playhouses will be on display inside Eastwood Mall from June through Mid-August, 2023. Designs will be judged in two groups, ages 6-9 and 10-14. The ten winning designers will receive mall gift cards. At the end of the display period, the playhouses will be auctioned off, with the proceeds benefitting Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley.
The contest begins Wednesday, March 22, 2023 and runs through Sunday, April 30, 2023. Age eligible children are to draw, color, and illustrate a picture of a house on at least an 8.5” x 11” sheet of paper. The entry should include the name, address, parent/guardian phone number, and age of child on the back (not front facing) of the submitted drawing. Children may submit their drawings at the Eastwood Mall Customer Service Center or mail them to the Eastwood Mall Marketing Office at 5555 Youngstown-Warren Rd., Niles, OH 44446. No entry will be accepted after April 30, 2023. All drawings received in the mail must be postmarked no later than April 30, 2023.
On Monday, May 1, 2023, a panel of three judges will choose eight drawings as first place winners. Each age group will also have a second place and third place winner. In addition, all drawings will be featured and displayed at the Eastwood Mall. A table containing the entries will be available for the public to have the opportunity to vote on a “People’s Choice” winner for both age groups.
(For a winner’s list or a copy of the Official Rules, please submit a written request with a self-addressed, stamped envelope to: Warner Management Co. Ltd., 5577 Youngstown-Warren Rd., Niles, OH 44446, Attn: Legal Department.)
Celebrate all your favorite cocktails on March 24th. National Cocktail Day ushers in all the best ways to savor a beverage at the end of a long workday. Whether you like a fruity drink, blended or on the rocks, this day is for you. Mocktail, virgin, or the real thing, celebrate the lemon, lime, bitters, liquors, and liqueurs that make your favorite beverages the best in your bartender book.
It’s probably no surprise that nearly every month on the calendar celebrates a cocktail. The only exception is April, and since it’s National Alcohol Awareness Month, it makes sense to take that month off.
A cocktail contains a spirit or a mix of spirits. While a beer is not considered a cocktail, there are beer cocktails where beer is added to a distilled ingredient. The same applies to wine.
The other months pay homage to histories, ingredients, and the makers of some legendary cocktails. January begins the year dedicating a day to the Bloody Mary, and there’s also a day for her Canadian counterpart, the Bloody Caesar, in May. January also devotes an entire week to Mocktails. In February, you can celebrate the Margarita and Kahlua. March brings us International Whisk(e)y Day, among others. Skipping back to May, you can imbibe in both Palomas and Mimosas for your celebrations.
June & July
June and July compete for the most cocktail-related days. From Martinis and Bourbon in June to Pina Coladas and Daiquiris in July, the two months cover the spectrum. There are even a few bottles of wine in between. Not only do they celebrate specific cocktails but they also celebrate the places we enjoy them. National Dive Bar Day in July invites us to celebrate the places that serve our favorite cocktails, even if it’s an ice-cold beer.
The rest of the year covers all our chilled and heated cocktails. By December, we readily reminisce National Repeal Day and the Bartenders who keep that era and the skills alive.
We have only skimmed the surface of the cocktails celebrated on the calendar, so National Cocktail Day allows you to celebrate whichever one you like!
HOW TO OBSERVE NATIONAL COCKTAIL DAY
Create your favorite cocktail to celebrate.
Explore cocktail ingredients or read a bartender’s manual.
Learn the finer elements of mixing cocktails and expand your home bar.
Visit a speakeasy or take a tour of your favorite distillery.
Host a cocktail tasting session. Create a classic menu with a professional bartender who provides history and describes the nuances behind the ingredients.
Attend a cocktail tasting party. You will learn more about how and why ingredients are combined the way they are.
Visit your local bookstore and pick up a cocktail or bar book. Follow the recipes and read about the histories these bartenders share. We recommend The Essential Bar Book by Jennifer Fielder, The Art and Science of The Perfect Cocktail by Janice Dreese, and Craft Cocktails at Home: Offbeat Techniques, Contemporary Crowd-Pleasers, and Classics Hacked with Science by Kevin Liu.
Visit your local bar and pick your bartender’s brain. Some like to share their techniques. Ask them what their favorite cocktail is. And, be sure to tip them well for their advice and service.
Try making a mocktail. Especially on those weeknights when work is busy, and you need to keep up. Many of them infuse nutrients many of us are lacking. Keep these recipes on hand for your friends who are designated drivers, sober for life, supporting a friend, or for any reason.
As always, ANY TIME we are indulging in spirits and alcohol, DON’T drink and drive. Designate a sober driver. Call a taxi, Uber, Lyft, or friend.
When you celebrate, share your favorites by using #NationalCocktailDay on social media.
