Dave Hawkins at Harpoon Hanna’s @ Harpoon Hanna's
6:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Dave Hawkins, an accomplished musician, has been playing music for what seems to be his entire life. Music is his passion and he is passionate about how it’s perceived throughout his audience. He plays many guitars, harmonica, and fiddle and when you hear him you will think there is a whole band, not just one person. This is accomplished by what is known as looping.  There is never a ‘backing track’ to play along with, which is used by some other players out there. His vocals and music will reach the deepest part of you while it sets your senses alive. He plays sounds from the current popular, to classic rock, to Dave Matthews, to his own original compositions as he touches on just about any genre you may desire.

Thinking Outside the Box @ Ocean City Center for the Arts
12:30 pm – 3:00 pm

Day after day we do the same things in the same order with the same people. A little mix up of that routine is the extent of our excitement. Faced with a problem solving moment, our creativity is suddenly asked to perform… But where is it?! It’s out of practice, sitting on the couch watching reruns in its pajamas. In this workshop, we’ll send that creativity segment of our brains to boot camp by asking it to rethink, relook, and reorient to everyday objects, activities, and actions. Using creativity more often strengthens our ability to call it to action when we need it.
