Vinnie grew up in Middletown NJ, the third of four children born to a plumber and a overlyoptimistic mother. He attended Rutgers College and immediately met the woman of hisnightmares. Promptly, they had three children and bills. Vinnie ran his own constructioncompany and flower shop while performing at open mic nights, juggling his time raising hischildren, working like a dog and performing.

After becoming a headline comic, He sold the flower shop, closed the construction company andgave his wife the divorce she was begging for. With three kids, no money and no car, he openedThe Stress Factory Comedy Club while living in a boarding house for fathers that lost it all inbad divorces.

In 1995 Vinnie met the woman of his dreams, Vicki, while borrowing her car. He married her in1998 and got full custody of his three children in 1999. Then, to round things out, they addedthree more children. Together, they built The Stress Factory into one of the best clubs in thecountry. During this time Vinnie had become a fixture not only at The Stress Factory, but everyclub in New York City.

Newton Choral Society Presents Blooming in Boston
Blooming in Boston Church of the Holy Name 1689 Centre Street West Roxbury, MA 02132 We salute Boston's preeminence as a flourishing music center with a program devoted to local composers. Central works include Garden Party, by Daniel Pinkham and Narcissus, by James Woodman. Garden Party, a comic opera, offers a decidedly whimsical and irreverent take on Adam and Eve's banishment from the Garden of Eden. Narcissus, commissioned by the Newton Choral Society in 1995, tells the ancient Greek myth of the beautiful youth who becomes spellbound by his own reflection. Also on the program are works by Carson Cooman set to poems by beloved writers: Eros, by Ralph Waldo Emerson, and The Choir Invisible, by George Eliot. Susan Consoli, soprano; Tom Jones, baritone; Mark Feldhusen, pianist

Flute Meditation by David Young

David,
An Evening of Music and Deep Meditation with David Young, Grammy nominated double flautist.

Open the door to the most profound spiritual experience of your life. David plays his flutes accompanied by a heavenly soundtrack and has sold over 1,000,000 cds.

Many call his music 'The Most Heavenly Music on
Earth'. It has been said that more people have had out of body and spiritual experiences with his music than any other musician alive today due to the profound healing qualities and higher energy vibration in his unique technique of playing two renaissance flutes at one time. David Young recorded 55 CDs.

Over 10,000 healers of all kinds; reiki practitioners, massage and physical therapists, acupuncturists, chiropractors, spas and hospitals use his music every day for its healing qualities.

Two of the people who were interviewed in the movie, The Secret, use Davids CD Creation as the meditation music in their workshops around the world. Marie Diamond, one of the speakers in that movie said she had "the most profound spiritual experience of my entire life" while David was performing.

He was the first musician asked to perform live with Braco at his gazing sessions after he supplied the musical soundtrack for his DVD, The Journey to Braco in 2012.

Many people experience going to the same place in the inner worlds during these spiritual adventures and find out that others had the same experience during the sharing.

To watch David performing a song from the album Bliss.

Olympic Community Meeting, Tuesday, April 28, RCC Auditorium, 6:30PM; Community Survey
Olympic Community Meeting, Tuesday, April 28, 6:30PM, RCC Auditorium RSVP appreciated but not required: economicdev@bostonnaacp.org Please help spread the word! On Tuesday, April 28 at 6:30PM, the city is hosting a community meeting at RCC Auditorium, about Boston's bid to host the 2024 Olympics. It is crucial that we are present, from the beginning, in planning and development processes in our communities. We are often left out of these processes. These processes are years in the making, and some of us don't pay attention until it is too late. We don't want Roxbury, Dorchester, and Mattapan only getting involved in the conversation in 2017, when a host city is chosen. It will be too late. It is imperative that we are involved in this conversation NOW, to shape the bid, and to shape future processes for big ideas in our communities. A flyer announcing the meeting is below and attached. Please forward to your networks and ask them to forward to their networks! Community Survey We want to know what Roxbury, Dorchester and Mattapan think about Boston hosting the 2024 Olympics. Please complete this short survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/8S8YDJ8 Please forward to your networks and ask them to forward to their networks! Thank You! Best, Nia K.
