Putting People First during COVID-19 & Beyond – Is Your Company Ready to Return?

Putting People First during COVID-19 and Beyond – Is Your Company Ready to Return? While the United States is in varying stages of reopening amid the COVID-19 pandemic, one constant in business remains: employers are facing the big challenge to ready their workforce and workplace for the return when it happens. It isn’t easy – complicated new policies, such as physical distancing, limited shared spaces and amenities, health checks, increased needs for masks, hand sanitizer, plus mental well-being of the workforce—are challenges that every leader is facing.

The Third Mind

Moe's Alley 1535 Commercial Way, Santa Cruz

THE THIRD MIND: Dave Alvin, Victor Krummenacher (Camper Van Beethoven), David Immergluck (Counting Crows) Michael Jerome (Richard Thompson) (((folkYEAH!)) presents the Santa Cruz debut of THE THIRD MIND - Dave Alvin, Victor Krummenacher (Camper Van Beethoven), David Immergluck (Counting Crows, John Hiatt), and Michael Jerome (Richard Thompson, Better Than Ezra), Jesse Sykes (Jesse Sykes & The Sweet Hereafter)"I had a crazy idea and was looking for musicians who perhaps didn’t think it was so insane. Many years ago I’d been reading John Szwed’s excellent biography of Miles Davis, “So What”, and was fascinated by his thorough descriptions of how Mr. Davis and his producer, Teo Macero, created some of his classic electric albums like Bitches Brew and Jack Johnson. Basically, Miles would gather great musicians in a studio, pick a key and a groove and then record everything live over several days. Then he and Mr. Macero would edit and shape these improvisations into compositions. Having never recorded like that, I had a fantasy to try it someday if the fates ever allowed. One night after a gig in San Francisco, a decade or more later, I mentioned this fantasy to Victor Krummenacher. I’d known the always musically adventurous Mr. Krummenacher for a couple of decades (since he was a young buck bassist in Camper Van Beethoven) and hoped he would understand." – Dave Alvin
