Hanson.net Pin Guide

Since the site’s relaunch in 2014, Hanson.net members have had the opportunity to get “pins” – similar to video game achievements, members have the opportunity to “level up” and get exclusive pins on the website based on different actions taken on the website or events attended in real life.  With the 2020 re-relaunch we decided to make a guide of all the pins and how to obtain them.

Please note that the Hanson.net Tech team is still working on pins since the re-relaunch so some pins that should be available may not be able to be obtained at this time.

We are missing 2020 versions of the 2017 Hansonopoly Bronze, Silver and Gold pins. If anyone knows of a profile with these pins, please send them to blog@hansonstage.com so we can get them included.

Eat to the Beat Not Returning to EPCOT Food and Wine For 2021

Inside the Magic

EPCOT’s International Food and Wine Festival is a much-anticipated event at Walt Disney World. Each year the event takes Guests on a journey filled with food and discovery inside of EPCOT.

Typically, this event hosts the Eat to the Beat concert series, which features famous bands and artists that perform as part of the Food and Wine Festival. This year, however, Disney has confirmed Eat to the Beat will not be returning — But something new is coming!

Today, in a post by Disney Parks Blog we received more details about what Guests can look forwards to at the 2021 International Food and Wine Festival presented by Corkcicle. Unfortunately, while Eat to the Beat will not be returning this year, it appears that there will still be plenty of music at the Festival:

…with performances by Voices of Liberty, Mariachi Cobre and Jammin’ Chefs. The festival will also open with America Gardens Bandstand presented by Florida Blue Medicare, a live-music concert series performed Friday through Monday evenings. Local bands from across Central Florida will take to the America Gardens Theatre stage, playing popular songs of yesterday and today.

We look forward to hearing the music at the new America Gardens Bandstand concert series as it will continue the tradition of live music during the Food and Wine Festival.

Hanson Tap Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen for New Song ‘Don’t Ever Change’

Rolling Stone

Song will appear on trio’s next album, Against the World

Hanson have released a new song, “Don’t Ever Change,” featuring some bonus guitar work from Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen.

“Don’t Ever Change” is a bright piece of power pop with piano and tambourine ringing behind the song’s crunchy guitars. The track arrives with a video of Hanson performing the song on a brightly lit stage as the song’s lyrics pop in in blazing neon on a screen behind them.

“’Don’t Ever Change’ is about the madness and beauty that love brings accompanied by a pure power-pop guitar riff,” Taylor Hanson said in a statement. “The fact that the legendary Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick agreed to lay down a guest solo on the song takes it to a whole new level.”

“Don’t Ever Change” marks the second offering from Hanson’s upcoming album, Against the World, following the lead single and video, “Annalie.” An official release date for Against the World has not been announced, but Hanson will keep releasing songs and additional content throughout the course of the year.

 

Hanson have also announced a summer concert series, which will run from July through October at Cain’s Ballroom in the band’s hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma. The shows will feature songs from Against the World, while each concert will also highlight a different era of the band’s career. Limited in-person tickets are available, although fans can also watch each show via a ticketed livestream; all tickets are on sale now on Hanson’s website.

Oklahoma Legislature passes new state film incentive bill and more movie news

Oklahoman 

Directed by Kelly Kerr, OSU’s coordinator of student media, the feature-length documentary looks at those who live and work in Tulsa’s Greenwood District today, what the future holds for Greenwood and how the memory of the massacre effects the neighborhood.

Kerr created an independent study course last fall and used OSU students as crew members. Production took a year, and the students conducted more than 20 interviews, earning college credit for their work.

The film concludes with Taylor Hanson, of the Tulsa-based Grammy-nominated band Hanson, performing an original song about Greenwood.

“Greenwood: Here and Now” will premiere at 7 p.m. Wednesday on the O’Colly Media Group app, which is available on Roku, Apple TV and Amazon Firestick. For more information, go to https://www.ocolly.com.
