The Damaged/J Prozac/The Remones (western Mass Ramones tribute)
It's going to be a fun night of great tunes featuring J. Prozac (of the long-running pop punkers The Prozacs), The Damaged (celebrating 15 years of glorious working class punk) and The Remones (western Mass' own Ramones tribute band)! THE REMONES https://www.facebook.com/TheRemones Western Mass's premier punk rock cover band playing songs that made The Ramones punk rock legends. The Remones will even play songs The Ramones rarely, if ever, played live and will throw a Misfits song or two into the mix for good measure. Get ready to Gabba Gabba Hey! THE DAMAGED https://www.facebook.com/TheDamaged On Halloween 2008, The Damaged re-united to play the First Annual Small Town Helloween. It was the first Damaged show in almost 3 years and they hit the stage like they never left. Word spread and more local bookings followed. On St Patty's Day 2009, The Damaged recorded their show opening up for Murphy's Law at The Trash Bar in Brooklyn. It was released a month later as "Alone In NYC". In 2011 The Damaged released their first full-length CD, "Cracks In The Sidewalk", and first studio release in nearly a decade. Thirteen tracks produced and recorded by TJ Welch (Welch Boys/Bluebloods). The Damaged have picked up where they left off and continue to play regularly with new and old friends around the Northeast. A new chapter has begun for them and hopefully more recording is in the future. Until then, check them out live and let the music hit you in the face! J PROZAC https://www.facebook.com/jprozac J Prozac, singer/guitarist/songwriter of 12+ years with the WMASS band The Prozacs is off on new adventures in music! Released on Jolly Ronnie Records in late 2013 was J Prozac's debut solo album "Here Is My Heart". J Prozac as a solo artist is an alternate vessel to create and explore with an open door to styles and collaborations with fellow friends/musicians, including a collaborative album with Bil McRackin of the McRackins from Vancouver, Canada, out sometime in 2014. Along with The Prozacs, J Prozac & The Stilettos is another new project getting under way in 2014. Be ready to get rocked!

CJ Ramone is back ready to play all your Ramones favorites as well as tunes from his Reconquista album. Gabba gabba hey!!!

CHRISTOPHER JOSEPH WARD, BETTER KNOWN AS "CJ RAMONE," IS AN AMERICAN MUSICIAN BEST KNOWN AS THE BASSIST FOR THE PUNK ROCK GROUP THE RAMONES FROM 1989 TO 1996. HIS HOMETOWN IS DEER PARK, NEW YORK. HE REPLACED ORIGINAL BAND-MEMBER DEE DEE RAMONE, THOUGH DEE DEE CONTINUED TO WRITE SONGS FOR THE GROUP. CJ SANG MANY WELL-KNOWN RAMONES SONGS. PRIOR TO JONING THE BAND, CJ WAS A MARINE AND A RAMONES FAN. HE WAS SEEN AS A BREATH OF FRESH AIR INTO THE BAND. JOHNNY RAMONE CLAIMED HE KNEW IMMEDIATELY WHEN CJ AUDITIONED TO REPLACE DEE DEE THAT HE WAS RIGHT; COMMENTING THAT CJ "HAD THE RIGHT LOOK." WHEN THE RAMONES WERE INDUCTED INTO THE ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME, ORIGINAL RAMONES DRUMMER TOMMY RAMONE CREDITED CJ WITH "KEEPING THE BAND YOUNG." CJ RAMONE WAS THE YOUNGEST MEMBER WHEN HE JOINED BY 9 YEARS. CJ'S FIRST SHOW WITH THE RAMONES WAS ON SEPTEMBER 30, 1989, IN LEICESTER, ENGLAND, AND HE PLAYED WITH THE BAND UNTIL THEY RETIRED ON AUGUST 6, 1996. AFTER THE RAMONES, HE PLAYED IN A BAND CALLED THE REMAINS, OR THE REMAINZ, WHICH WAS FORMED BY DEE DEE RAMONE, MARKY RAMONE, AND DEE DEE'S WIFE, BARBARA ZAMPINI (BARBARA RAMONE). HE ALSO PLAYED WITH HIS OWN BANDS LOS GUSANOS AND BAD CHOPPER. HE NOW TOURS ON HIS OWN AS CJ RAMONE WITH HIS FIRST SOLO ALBUM - RECONQUISTA. CJ LIVES WITH HIS WIFE AND THREE KIDS. CJ IS ACTIVE WITH THE AUTISM COMMUNITY BECAUSE HIS SON HAS AUTISM. HE ALSO VOLUNTEERS HIS TIME AS A GUEST TEACHER AT THE SCHOOL OF ROCK IN FARMINGDALE, NEW YORK. ________________________________ ORDER OF THE CIRCLE The Order of the Circle is comprised of local punk rockers who've been toiling in the underground for 10+years with bands like Captain Toxicant and The Blackouts. However, the band's epistemological awakening upon discovery of The Circle has revitalized their commitment to the punk rock scene, and to reshaping humanity in general. THE FALLEN STARLETS "EVERYONE WILL SUFFER NOW" Rock is Deader Than Dead. Shock Is All in Your Head. What more can be said? This group of miscreants worship at the alter of Girls, Drugs, Beer, Makeup, Fire, Tattoos, Self Destruction, Fornication, Sunshine, Lollipops, Rainbows, TV, More Girls, More Drugs, More Beer, ECT...

Justin Hayward
Justin Hayward is best known as the singer, composer and lead guitarist for The Moody Blues. The Swindon, England native's professional career began in 1964 when he joined Marty Wilde and his wife, Joyce, in the Wilde Three. Hayward joined the Moody Blues in late 1966, replacing departing vocalist, Denny Laine. Bassist John Lodge replaced Clint Warwick at the same time. The integration of Hayward and Lodge into the Moody Blues sparked commercial success and recognition for the band, transforming them from a cover band into one of the biggest selling acts of all-time. The 1967 album Days of Future Passed was one of the most influential albums of its genre and spawned the Hayward-penned singles "Tuesday Afternoon" and "Nights in White Satin" that went on to sell over 2 million copies worldwide.

Professional Standards Tribunal Training

Professional Standards Tribunal Training June 4th, 2014, 9:00 a.m. noon in the Board Office conference center. This training was hugely successful and by popular demand, we are bringing it back!

How does one improve on perfection! This was the best Professional Standards Training class I have attended.The case study was informative, discussions lively, and the pace of the class was perfect. -Susan Baum,Broker/Owner Berkshire Homes and Condos

LOVED this class. Very informative. Would go just for the education over and over! - Tiffany Roberts, CBR,e-PRO, Broker/Owner Berkshire House Hunters, LLC

Attendance is FREE to BCBR members but registration is required. Seating is limited, please register early. Seats are available on a first registered, first reserved basis.

Are you interested in learning more about the process of Professional Standards (ethics and arbitration hearings) that are administered at the Board Office? Are you a member of the BCBR or MLS Board of Directors? A member of Grievance? Would you like to serve as a panel member on hearings? Then this training is for YOU!

I thought this course was VERY GOOD! This should be mandatory training for everyone! - Mark Harris, Signature Associates, Inc.

Sue and Sandy will present information on the process and will hold a live, hands-on hearing procedure for all to learn how to be excellent ambassadors for the association.

This kind of "hands on" information would be so good to get out to everyone, not just those who want to prepare for the Professional Standards Committee. It's hard to "teach" the Code of Ethics but when people can see examples of violations, it really hits home.-Mary Jo Piretti Miller, GRI, Piretti Real Estate

This class was really, REALLY well run. All the important topics were well covered. Sandy and Sue "tagged teamed" really well. The small groups were very manageable and the examples used were thought provoking. This class gets an "A". -Anne B. Meczywor, Broker/Associate Roberts & Associates Realty, Inc.

Danny Pease & the Regulators https://www.facebook.com/dprsound Danny Pease and the Regulators (DPR) have been together with their most recent lineup since March of 2011.

With their home base in Western Mass, they have steadily been scouring the Northeast and impressing newcomers with high energy and uplifting shows. Even being described as "A veritable army of energetic rockers... DPR blends ska, reggae, rock and hip-hop into a whirlwind of whoop-ass..." - The Valley Advocate Their most recent EP "Watchout!", released in September of 2011, is only the beginning of what to expect from this elite squad of intergalactic warriors.

Expect to hear some new material in the upcoming 2012-13 seasons!! View Danny Pease and the Regulators (DPR) Electronic Press Kit: http://www.sonicbids.com/Profile/ArtistProfile.aspx?account_id=92140 Rebel Alliance https://www.facebook.com/RebelAlliance413 Rock, Reggae, and revolution, These are the things that Rebel Alliance, The Berkshires pre-eminent reggae-influenced band, preach to the masses!
