Philly Funk Band Swift Technique Makes Appearance In Orange Is The New Black Finale

first_imgFans everywhere have been excited to binge watch the new season of Orange Is The New Black, which was released by Netflix on Friday, June 17th. We were delighted to learn that one of our favorite Philly bands, Swift Technique, was featured in the final episode of this season. The group answered a casting call with a YouTube video and got the gig, only to rock out for the cast on set.Bassist Jake Leschinsky shares some thoughts of his experience with us.“We had an absolute blast working with the cast & crew of Orange Is The New Black. It was an honor to be called upon by this particular show that is currently on the cutting edge of modern television. The opportunity was twofold – we spent an intensive day in the studio cutting a track for the show & we spent one day filming on set. The project materialized very quickly and we even had to cancel a high profile show. When all was said and done, I was so proud to see our guys rise to the occasion and absolutely knock this out of the park.”Congrats to Swift Technique!For fans of their funk, don’t miss the band performing a tribute to Prince at Brooklyn’s The Hall At MP, supporting an all-star “James Brown Vs. Prince” super jam session with members of Lettuce, Trey Anastasio Band, Rubblebucket, Turkuaz and more. The show is this Wednesday, June 22nd, and more information can be found here. The band will then head to the Ardmore Music Hall on June 24th for a performance alongside Con Brio, so don’t miss out! More info can be found here.last_img read more

U.N. Secretary General Recommends Further Staff Reduction at MINUSTAH

first_img In addition, the Mission has 2,600 police officers. However, with regard to the political field, Ban said that “the democratic process in Haiti is still fragile,” and that he was “deeply concerned with the delay” to hold partial legislative, municipal and local elections. Secretary General Ban sent a report to the Security Council, requesting, “To consider another personnel reduction” in the U.N. Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), reducing troops from 6,270 to 5,021 by June 2014. U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon recommended a 15% reduction of Blue Helmets in Haiti, due to improvements in security. “I hereby request Haitian political leaders to conduct a constructive dialogue, in order to achieve minimum political consensus and then hold elections whenever possible.” Haiti is a disaster, and has been like that for many years. The question is, is the UN there to prevent the country from being invaded by a foreign nation or from completely falling in the hands of drug cartels? Because no one talks about the life quality indicators and the only thing we know are the repeated news regarding the horrible living conditions of the majority of the population and the situation seems hopeless. I sent a regular comment and nothing was posted. By Dialogo August 22, 2013last_img read more
