War Paint Returns! 

DMSC’s classic bracket-style drawing competition is back, this year at Proof Restaurant. Artists will be given a 1’x1′ white board, black marker, and 20 minutes to create their piece inspired by a different category each round. An audience vote will determine which artists move on to the next round. In the final head-to-head round, both artists will have 1 hour, their choice of markers, and a 2’x2′ white board to create their masterpiece. At the end of the night, we’ll crown the 2018 War Paint Champion!

This event is free to spectators, and open to all ages. Artists who wish to compete must register ($7 early-bird, $10 day-of).

This class is for anyone who has not tried ATS® Belly Dance before or who wants to work on, or improve their foundational movements. No previous dance experience is necessary and no, you do not need to show your belly if you don’t want to. Students should wear something comfortable to move in and may bring a water bottle to class. Students will need… a set of zills for week 4 of class. More information on this will be available on the first night of class.

June 20th:
A Doll’s House, Part 2 by Lucas Hnath

In the final scene of Ibsen’s 1879 groundbreaking masterwork, Nora Helmer makes the shocking decision to leave her husband and children, and begin a life on her own. This climactic event—when Nora slams the door on everything in her life—instantly propelled world drama into the modern age. In A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2, many years have passed since Nora’s exit. Now, there’s a knock on that same door. Nora has returned. But why? And what will it mean for those she left behind?

About the Artist: Yvette strives to make women feel whole in a world that makes them feel like they aren’t enough. Knowing how unsureyvette_biopic life could make one feel she knew she needed to reach out to other women to let them know that  they too were perfect. Remembering the feeling of being disconnected from herself she wanted to give other women the push they need to go out and conquer the world in the way they see fit. A wife and mother of six children between the ages 4 to 23 and grandmother of one, Yvette created Flirt Life University to help other women deal with the overwhelming feelings of being a woman while still living everyday life.

About the Class: Calling all beer loving Yogis. This practice is Beer Yoga, which works deeply into the connective tissues while consuming hoppy goodness. Beer Yoga focuses on slowly stretching the connective tissues around joints, which allows you to focus on the delicious nectar in your can. This practice works cold muscles and cold beers instead of muscles and beers that have been warmed up. 

The $5 does not include a drink but we will have various craft options available. Make sure to bring your mat, towel, beer gut and good vibes to this safe, welcoming class.

About the Instructor: Sam Lowry has been practicing yoga for 3 years and practicing beer drinking since turning 21. Sam likes to keep his classes open and fun so everyone can have a good time.

NOLA Jazz PosterThe NOLA Jazz Bands monthly “New Orleans Jazz Party” occurs every First Friday of the month at “The Basement” many times playing to a packed house.
 
All band members have a common love for the sound and “feel” of both traditional and current New Orleans and roots blues music – real, gutsy, raw, heartfelt, and entertaining. They also find joy in their music and love performing together, having fun, and entertaining their audiences.
 
The NOLA Jazz Band has played alongside a number of well-known traditional jazz and music groups this past year including Davina & the Vagabonds, Sony recording artist trumpet player and singer Bria Skonberg, and Dom Flemons of The Carolina Chocolate Drops.
 
Individual band members have also shared the stage with Vincent Gardner, Maynard Ferguson, Benny Goodman, Kurt Elling, and many other well know jazz artists during their careers. NOLA Jazz Band members have also been inducted into the Iowa Jazz Hall of Fame, and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
 
The band had a busy 2016 summer festival schedule playing festivals across the Midwest and Central US, and also played for many private functions across Central Iowa. Appreciative audiences, fellow musicians, promoters and positive word of mouth has created a busy performance schedule and continued demand for their music as they build their reputation in the Midwest, regionally and across the US.
 
To commemorate their first year full year together they released their first album in March, 2016 – NOLA Jazz Band Vol. 1 “Genesis – Live from the ARK”. CD’s are available at live shows, online at iTunes and CD Baby, on their website, as well as streaming on Spotify.

The Beginner class will teach students the foundations of American Tribal Style ® Belly Dance including Foundational Steps both fast and slow, posture, formations, the improvisational format, and playing the zills (finger cymbals). This class is for anyone who has not tried ATS® Belly Dance before or who wants to work on, or improve their foundational movements. No previous dance experience is necessary and no, you do not need to show your belly if you don’t want to. Students should wear something comfortable to move in and may bring a water bottle to class. Students will need… a set of zills for week 4 of class. More information on this will be available on the first night of class.

About the Artist: Dawn Grey is an American Tribal Style® Belly Dancer, Certified Instructor, Fat Chance Belly Dance® Sister Studio, andbd97 the Director of Blissful Sunrise Belly Dance and the performance troupe Seize The Sway. She has had a love of dance almost since before she could walk. She has been trained in ballet, tap, and jazz dance throughout her childhood, teens, and as a dance major in college. Then life stepped in. She is a devoted wife and mother of two who stopped dancing to get a job with health insurance. Fourteen years later she realized something was missing. It was then that she found ATS® Belly Dance and fell in love. She has not stopped since and loves to share her passion with others.

A crash course in beginner mixology! Each class will cover a different method or style, preperation, and technique, along with plenty of samples and a homemade gift. 

About the Artist: Karli’s been spending her time in bars (for fun and for money) since 2013, asking questions and trying everything she can with a complete disregard for her own safety. She graduated from Iowa State University with a BFA in 2016 at which time she knew she was definitely going to make her living imbibing others. After time in beer halls, venues, and cruddy breweries, she somehow talked the idiot savants at Proof into letting her join their team in 2016. Since then, she’s been aggressively consuming all the knowledge (and liquor) she can get her hands on, buying/borrowing/stealing every cocktail book she comes across. This is her first class and she’s not above bribing her students to like her in the form of take-home gifts.

Jamie Lin Wilson

When describing Jamie Wilson’s voice, two aspects come to mind: that honeyed tenor twang that’s become known as one of the sweetest instruments in modern folk music, and that poignant, poetic, down-to-earth point of view she brings to her songwriting. The spotlight shines brighter than ever on both with Holidays & Wedding Rings, her May 2015 release. Even fans may be surprised to realize it’s the first full-length solo album from one of brightest and busiest stars in her recent years amid the folk/Americana/independent country music scene.

An artist of singular talent and restless creativity, she broke into the Texas country/folk scene as one of the co-lead vocalists of the Gougers before the band gradually gave way to not only Wilson’s solo work (the fine EP “Dirty Blonde Hair” was released in 2010) but also higher-profile musical adventures with The Trishas, an all-female singer-songwriter band that has toured through some of the state and nation’s best venues. Scoring one of the best albums of 2012 with “High Wide & Handsome,” the Trishas lit up the genre for a few years while always leaving Wilson room for solo gigs, guest spots on over a dozen albums by now, and song-swaps with like-minded artists all over Texas and beyond.

Both deeply personal and solidly collaborative, Holidays & Wedding Rings is an evident labor of love from the sort of songwriter who can delve into the sweetness of family life without hitting sap. Someone who can dig into heartache without wallowing in it, go slow and subtle and still leave a listener rapt. Someone who can share the spotlight with top-flight musicians: veteran Texas music hands John Ross Silva, Scott Davis, Cody Foote and Reckless Kelly’s David Abeyta are all in the mix here, along with alt-country star Wade Bowen on a spine-tingling duet/co-write. Wilson’s home life as a wife and mom come through often in her music (and are known to many of her fans through her humorous social media profiles) but creatively, she can portray lonesome and restless with the best of them.

Multiple approaches, countless gigs, several years and nearly a million miles into what promises to be a grand career, Jamie Wilson not only runs with a good crowd: she never fails to stand out.

Des Moines Social ClubRobert Deitch

Robert Deitch is one of those rare talented Songwriters, who happens to have a “holds-his-own-with-the-best-of-them” singing voice. His music has been described as “vivid storytelling” delivered in a “powerful blend of country, soul and blues”. Currently a staff songwriter with Dan Hodges Music Publishing in Nashville, Deitch has earned the praise of some of Country Music Industry Elites. Hall of Fame Singer/Artist,, Bobby Bare, proclaims Deitch as “one hell of a songwriter and singer”. Robert has also received praise from the likes of Hall of Fame Songwriters Hugh Prestwood (“A Song Remembers When”) and Roger Murrah (“Don’t Rock The Jukebox”). Prestwood describes Deitch as “a gifted songwriter who mixes compelling storytelling with a powerful, soulful delivery,” while Murrah proclaimed Deitch to be “one of Nashville ’s best kept secrets…but not for long….”

Robert grew up in a Three Church, Two Tavern town in southeastern Iowa, and now splits his time between Nashville, Tennessee, and his home state.

A crash course in beginner mixology! Each class will cover a different method or style, preperation, and technique, along with plenty of samples and a homemade gift. 

About the Artist: Karli’s been spending her time in bars (for fun and for money) since 2013, asking questions and trying everything she can with a complete disregard for her own safety. She graduated from Iowa State University with a BFA in 2016 at which time she knew she was definitely going to make her living imbibing others. After time in beer halls, venues, and cruddy breweries, she somehow talked the idiot savants at Proof into letting her join their team in 2016. Since then, she’s been aggressively consuming all the knowledge (and liquor) she can get her hands on, buying/borrowing/stealing every cocktail book she comes across. This is her first class and she’s not above bribing her students to like her in the form of take-home gifts.

1920’s Charleston is the dance that helped kick off the later swing crazes of the 30s, 40s and 50s, and is an easy 8-count step to learn. It is traditionally danced to fast 1920’s music, but can also be applied to modern beats as well. In this class, participants will learn the basic step and some tricks and turns to add flair. This dance can be danced solo or with a partner and this class will explore the partner Charleston, however you DO NOT NEED a partner to participate.  Come stag, with a partner, or with a group! No prior dance experience required.

A crash course in beginner mixology! Each class will cover a different method or style, preperation, and technique, along with plenty of samples and a homemade gift. 

About the Artist: Karli’s been spending her time in bars (for fun and for money) since 2013, asking questions and trying everything she can with a complete disregard for her own safety. She graduated from Iowa State University with a BFA in 2016 at which time she knew she was definitely going to make her living imbibing others. After time in beer halls, venues, and cruddy breweries, she somehow talked the idiot savants at Proof into letting her join their team in 2016. Since then, she’s been aggressively consuming all the knowledge (and liquor) she can get her hands on, buying/borrowing/stealing every cocktail book she comes across. This is her first class and she’s not above bribing her students to like her in the form of take-home gifts.

The group’s relentless touring has taken them to the stages of Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Sundance Film Festival, SWSW and nationally as a headlining act. In 2011, Ha Ha Tonk was a guest on Anthony Bourdain’s show, No Reservations. In 2017, they Played on the Conan O’Brien show.

Crystal City

Taking on dual personalities, Crystal City plays regularly around the Midwest as a Rock ’n’ Roll outfit as well as performing more intimately as a fingerstyle duo, with rich harmonies and melodic whistling, comparable to the likes of Andrew Bird. Crystal City’s classic songwriting can warm a weary heart and get bedraggled feet stomping.

About the Artists: 

Karli’s been spending her time in bars (for fun and for money) since 2013, asking questions and trying everything she can with a complete disregard for her own safety. She graduated from Iowa State University with a BFA in 2016 at which time she knew she was definitely going to make her living imbibing others. After time in beer halls, venues, and cruddy breweries, she somehow talked the idiot savants at Proof into letting her join their team in 2016. Since then, she’s been aggressively consuming all the knowledge (and liquor) she can get her hands on, buying/borrowing/stealing every cocktail book she comes across. This is her first class and she’s not above bribing her students to like her in the form of take-home gifts.

Lilah Anderson, Adult Education Coordinator at Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden, will join Karli in teaching this class.

NOLA Jazz PosterThe NOLA Jazz Bands monthly “New Orleans Jazz Party” occurs every First Friday of the month at “The Basement” many times playing to a packed house.
 
All band members have a common love for the sound and “feel” of both traditional and current New Orleans and roots blues music – real, gutsy, raw, heartfelt, and entertaining. They also find joy in their music and love performing together, having fun, and entertaining their audiences.
 
The NOLA Jazz Band has played alongside a number of well-known traditional jazz and music groups this past year including Davina & the Vagabonds, Sony recording artist trumpet player and singer Bria Skonberg, and Dom Flemons of The Carolina Chocolate Drops.
 
Individual band members have also shared the stage with Vincent Gardner, Maynard Ferguson, Benny Goodman, Kurt Elling, and many other well know jazz artists during their careers. NOLA Jazz Band members have also been inducted into the Iowa Jazz Hall of Fame, and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
 
The band had a busy 2016 summer festival schedule playing festivals across the Midwest and Central US, and also played for many private functions across Central Iowa. Appreciative audiences, fellow musicians, promoters and positive word of mouth has created a busy performance schedule and continued demand for their music as they build their reputation in the Midwest, regionally and across the US.
 
To commemorate their first year full year together they released their first album in March, 2016 – NOLA Jazz Band Vol. 1 “Genesis – Live from the ARK”. CD’s are available at live shows, online at iTunes and CD Baby, on their website, as well as streaming on Spotify.

About the Artists: 

Karli’s been spending her time in bars (for fun and for money) since 2013, asking questions and trying everything she can with a complete disregard for her own safety. She graduated from Iowa State University with a BFA in 2016 at which time she knew she was definitely going to make her living imbibing others. After time in beer halls, venues, and cruddy breweries, she somehow talked the idiot savants at Proof into letting her join their team in 2016. Since then, she’s been aggressively consuming all the knowledge (and liquor) she can get her hands on, buying/borrowing/stealing every cocktail book she comes across. This is her first class and she’s not above bribing her students to like her in the form of take-home gifts.

Lilah Anderson, Adult Education Coordinator at Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden, will join Karli in teaching this class.

SHAKE ‘EM UP JAZZ BAND

The headliner for the Des Moines Jazz Festival is the all-female Shake ‘Em Up Jazz Band.

In June 2016, Shaye Cohn assembled an all-star, all-woman cast of traditional jazz musicians to perform for Girls Rock New Orleans. They had a blast playing together, and requests to play started pouring in. Shaye brought in Haruka Kikuchi and her Kid Ory-inspired trombone, and the six players — Haruka, Marla Dixon on trumpet, Chloe Feoranzo on clarinet, Molly Reeves on guitar, Julie Schexnayder on string bass and percussionist Dizzy Incirlioglu — have been gigging together ever since, in clubs around New Orleans and as far as Perugia, Italy. Their first 10-track record, Le Donne Mangiano Zucchero, was released in July. Shake‘Em Up is excited to head into the studio this year to record an album featuring women composers from the 1910s-1930s. 


BOBBY WATSON QUARTET

The headliner for Friday is the Bobby Watson Quartet featuring Kansas City saxophone player and jazz legend Bobby Watson, Jr.

For more than three decades now Watson has contributed consistently intelligent, sensitive and well-thought out music to the modern-day jazz lexicon. All told, Watson, the immensely talented and now-seasoned veteran, has issued some 30 recordings as a leader and appeared on 100-plus other recordings, performing as either co-leader or in support of other like-minded musicians. Not simply a performer, the saxophonist has recorded more than 100 original compositions including the music for the soundtrack of A Bronx Tale, which marked Robert DeNiro’s 1993 directorial debut. Numerous Watson compositions have become classics such as his “Time Will Tell,” “In Case You Missed It” and “Wheel within a Wheel,” each now oft-recorded titles that are interpreted by his fellow musicians both on the bandstand and on other recordings.


CHRISTIAN HOWES

Since 2011, performer, educator and composer, Christian Howes was voted #1 in the Downbeat Critics Poll (“Rising Stars/Violin”), named among the top three jazz violinists in the JazzTimes critics poll, and nominated for Violinist of the Year by the Jazz Journalist Association. He received the Residency Partner Award through Chamber Music America for residencies in school orchestras, earned a USArtists grant through the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, and was invited by the U.S. State department to teach and perform as a cultural ambassador in Ukraine and Montenegro. His 2013 release on Resonance Records, “Southern Exposure” earned recognition in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Downbeat, Jazz Times, as well as a six-night run at Lincoln Center. His 2015 release, “American Spirit” was named among the Best Jazz Albums of 2015″ by the Huffington Post. Howes is the founder of “Creative Strings“, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to expand music education through the creation of online curriculum, an annual summer conference, and dozens of visits to schools annually teaching improvisation, contemporary styles, and related subjects.

Shake ‘Em Up Jazz Band

SHAKE ‘EM UP JAZZ BAND

The headliner for the Des Moines Jazz Festival is the all-female Shake ‘Em Up Jazz Band.

In June 2016, Shaye Cohn assembled an all-star, all-woman cast of traditional jazz musicians to perform for Girls Rock New Orleans. They had a blast playing together, and requests to play started pouring in. Shaye brought in Haruka Kikuchi and her Kid Ory-inspired trombone, and the six players — Haruka, Marla Dixon on trumpet, Chloe Feoranzo on clarinet, Molly Reeves on guitar, Julie Schexnayder on string bass and percussionist Dizzy Incirlioglu — have been gigging together ever since, in clubs around New Orleans and as far as Perugia, Italy. Their first 10-track record, Le Donne Mangiano Zucchero, was released in July. Shake‘Em Up is excited to head into the studio this year to record an album featuring women composers from the 1910s-1930s. 


BOBBY WATSON QUARTET

The headliner for Friday is the Bobby Watson Quartet featuring Kansas City saxophone player and jazz legend Bobby Watson, Jr.

For more than three decades now Watson has contributed consistently intelligent, sensitive and well-thought out music to the modern-day jazz lexicon. All told, Watson, the immensely talented and now-seasoned veteran, has issued some 30 recordings as a leader and appeared on 100-plus other recordings, performing as either co-leader or in support of other like-minded musicians. Not simply a performer, the saxophonist has recorded more than 100 original compositions including the music for the soundtrack of A Bronx Tale, which marked Robert DeNiro’s 1993 directorial debut. Numerous Watson compositions have become classics such as his “Time Will Tell,” “In Case You Missed It” and “Wheel within a Wheel,” each now oft-recorded titles that are interpreted by his fellow musicians both on the bandstand and on other recordings.


CHRISTIAN HOWES

Since 2011, performer, educator and composer, Christian Howes was voted #1 in the Downbeat Critics Poll (“Rising Stars/Violin”), named among the top three jazz violinists in the JazzTimes critics poll, and nominated for Violinist of the Year by the Jazz Journalist Association. He received the Residency Partner Award through Chamber Music America for residencies in school orchestras, earned a USArtists grant through the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, and was invited by the U.S. State department to teach and perform as a cultural ambassador in Ukraine and Montenegro. His 2013 release on Resonance Records, “Southern Exposure” earned recognition in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Downbeat, Jazz Times, as well as a six-night run at Lincoln Center. His 2015 release, “American Spirit” was named among the Best Jazz Albums of 2015″ by the Huffington Post. Howes is the founder of “Creative Strings“, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to expand music education through the creation of online curriculum, an annual summer conference, and dozens of visits to schools annually teaching improvisation, contemporary styles, and related subjects.

NOLA Jazz PosterThe NOLA Jazz Bands monthly “New Orleans Jazz Party” occurs every First Friday of the month at “The Basement” many times playing to a packed house.
 
All band members have a common love for the sound and “feel” of both traditional and current New Orleans and roots blues music – real, gutsy, raw, heartfelt, and entertaining. They also find joy in their music and love performing together, having fun, and entertaining their audiences.
 
The NOLA Jazz Band has played alongside a number of well-known traditional jazz and music groups this past year including Davina & the Vagabonds, Sony recording artist trumpet player and singer Bria Skonberg, and Dom Flemons of The Carolina Chocolate Drops.
 
Individual band members have also shared the stage with Vincent Gardner, Maynard Ferguson, Benny Goodman, Kurt Elling, and many other well know jazz artists during their careers. NOLA Jazz Band members have also been inducted into the Iowa Jazz Hall of Fame, and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
 
The band had a busy 2016 summer festival schedule playing festivals across the Midwest and Central US, and also played for many private functions across Central Iowa. Appreciative audiences, fellow musicians, promoters and positive word of mouth has created a busy performance schedule and continued demand for their music as they build their reputation in the Midwest, regionally and across the US.
 
To commemorate their first year full year together they released their first album in March, 2016 – NOLA Jazz Band Vol. 1 “Genesis – Live from the ARK”. CD’s are available at live shows, online at iTunes and CD Baby, on their website, as well as streaming on Spotify.
