Dubbed “The Ball Drop,” the run featured support from Moon Hooch on night one and Kung Fu and West End Blend on New Year’s Eve.,For night one on Friday, Moon Hooch opened with guns-a-blazing. Full-on, in-your-face horns got the evening off to a proper start. Who knew horns could morph into an EDM vibe? These guys were nonstop energy, and promptly warmed up fans before the headliners took to the stage.Turkuaz walked on stage with their well known color-coordinated outfits, including their staple Members Only jackets, to the delight of fans. The band opened up the two-night run with “Murder Face” before a jazzy, funked-up “Bijou Drains (The Birddog)” slinked into “Gremlins.” The night was off to a hell of a start. “EFN” was a steamy jam knee deep in bass tones, and the crowd reciprocated with cheers when they busted out the tune. Craig Brodhead took off on a crushing electrical escapade with his guitar, bringing the melody on a spacey journey with Michelangelo Carubba‘s in-the-pocket drumming steering the ship.The ’70’s showed up as they cracked open a serving of rollerskating love with a sexy cover of Chic’s “Le Freak.” Another cover, The Box Tops’ “The Letter,” had everyone in the place belting out the lyrics. Sax player Josh Schwartz put down his instrument to take over the vocals for a soothing “Pickin’ Up Where You Left Off,” throwing the venue into a cyclone of massive joy. “M’Lady” closed out the first night on a high note. This fast-paced jam rolled along and kept the fans dancing their asses off.Night one was stuffed with mind-blowing horns, sweat-inducing, non-stop, danceable beats, and vibes that kept the energy high as a kite throughout the evening. Fans experienced face-melting moments around the venue as the air was filled with electricity. Nine-piece Turkuaz has a tendency to blow the roof off with their soulful, mesmerizing melodies that reach into the core of fans, grab hold and not let go until the last beat of the night hits. Night one was just the beginning. Turkuaz was guaranteed to have surprises galore in store for New Year’s Eve.Setlist: Turkuaz, December 30, 2016, Fete Music Hall, Providence, Rhode IslandMurder Face, Bijou Drains (The Birddog)>Gremlins, Snap Your Fingers, Slippery People, Digital Love, EFN (European Festivity Nightmare), Future 86, Electric Habitat, *Le Freak, Coast to Coast, Club Foot, The Generator, Everyone’s a Winner, %The Letter, Pickin’ Up (Where You Left Off), Ballad of Castor Troy, Lookin’ Tough Feelin’ Good, Babies Making Babies, M’Lady*Chic cover, %The Box Tops coverNight two of “The Ball Drop” saw Hartford, CT’s West End Blend kick off the New Year’s Eve extravaganza. The stage was crammed with 10 musicians, four of them horns. The big band did not disappoint, as they blasted the crowd with some heavy funk that heated up the joint, priming the venue for two more sets of intense music.The crowd outside the venue streamed in as Kung Fu took the stage. They took their set on a hypnotizing jaunt through funkafied notes and beats that had the audience jumping. This band, sandwiched between the other two acts, set Fete on fire, injecting attendees with infectious dancing grooves.Turkuaz took to the stage in their normal colors, but this time they were snazzed up with the men wearing suit jackets in lieu of their Members Only gear while Sammi Garett and Shira Elias showed off their own elegant, jaw dropping wardrobe. They wasted no time in getting things started when they took off with “Chatte Lunatique.” At midnight, streamers and confetti rained down on the crowd as champagne was brought on stage for the musicians. The traditional “Auld Lang Syne” was sung by the entire venue before they welcomed the new year with Steely Dan’s catchy “Reelin’ In The Years.”Heavily-played favorites “Tiptoe Through the Crypto” and “Digitonium” crept into the set before “Holy Ghost” cooled things off for a moment. Fans were on fire, dressed in outfits that ranged from straight up glitter to shiny disco ball suits. Happiness abounded on this first night of the new year. “Don’t Do It” flowed into “Nightswimming,” ensuring fans were getting the best of the best for the celebratory evening.Deep tones from the baritone sax opened up “Gogo Mr. Dodo.” Drifty guitar tones flowed throughout, and touches of psychedelia peaked in, but the melody stayed grounded firmly in hard funk. The stage got crammed once again as the West End Blend horns and Kung Fu came out to join in on Paul Simon’s “You Can Call Me Al,” before heading into the final song of the night, Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer.”Turkuaz always brings high energy, infectious vibes, and multi-faceted levels of funk to the stage. They continue to grow more fans with each show. If they have eluded you so far, make sure to put them on your 2017 list of must-see live performances.

With this in mind, always know you’re not the first person to feel the way you do in the situation you’re in. Here are a few things to remember when having to tackle a tough conversation.Be preparedWhen you have to engage in a difficult conversation, always be prepared. You may not be able to plan out what you want to say word for word, but it will help to jot down a few notes. Know that the conversation isn’t going to go exactly the way you think it will, and that’s okay. Be clear and keep it simple. You know the objective of the conversation so just make sure you keep it on track.Be in the right mindsetYou may know beforehand that it’s going to be difficult but try and put a positive spin on it. Instead of focusing on the negatives involved in the conversation, focus on the positives that will result. Whether that be for the individual or the company, it should make things better.Take a deep breathStay calm. Collect your thoughts and gather your focus. The more you stay centered, the easier the conversation will be. It’s easy to get flustered during a disagreement and difficult conversations often lead to this. Keep your head and stay cool.Be consistentMake sure similar situations with different employees are handled the same way. You don’t want to show perceived favoritism. Stay consistent so your employees know where you stand in regards to employee accountability.Gain perspectiveAsk your employee how they feel about the situation and get an understanding of their viewpoint. This way, they know you care even if there’s not an easy resolution. Just remember to listen well and let your employee speak their mind.last_img read more

first_imgTopics : The Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) Ministry is proposing the inclusion of power companies onto a list of industries eligible for cheap natural gas.The list, as stipulated by Presidential Regulation (Perpres) No. 40/2016, currently includes the rubber gloves, ceramics, glass, steel, fertilizer, petrochemical and oleochemical industries, which are eligible to procure gas at US$6 per million British thermal units (mmbtu).The figure is far lower than the national average of around $8 per mmbtu. “We have suggested the idea. Whether or not the industry is included, depends on when the revised Perpres is issued,” the Energy Ministry’s electrification director general, Rida Mulyana, said in Jakarta on Monday.Read also: PLN to use LNG in 52 power plants to help reduce oil importsProviding cheap gas to Indonesia’s power companies, specifically to the country’s largest power producer, state-owned PLN, would also lower electricity prices, he said.President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo issued a regulation in 2016 to provide cheap gas for certain industries, yet gas prices have remained unchanged over the past four years.The President announced in January three possible solutions to reduce prices, such as the imposition of the domestic market obligation (DMO) policy on gas producers, fiscal incentives and import relaxations. Jokowi is expected to make a decision on the matter at the end of March.last_img read more
