This week marks the 50th Anniversary of the signing of hte Voting rights bill, which literally transformed America by giving African Americans, who had previously been denied the right to vote in many southern states, the power to elect representatives where they live. How has voting rights changed public policy? Have we elected officials that have the skills to introduce laws that correct conditions where we live? Do we known what skills and experiences a person should have in order to be a good elected government representative? Have our representatives served us well or sold us out? How many jobs have blacks secured as a result of having access to government positions? Has anybody been able to introduce enforceable laws to stop this violent police backlash against African American citizens? How have our elected officials dealt with racism and helped eradicate it? Civil Rights Activist Yesse Yehuda examines the political and economic progress that resulted from the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.

Martin Luther King.
In early 1965, Martin Luther King Jr.’s Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) made Selma, Alabama, the focus of its efforts to register black voters in the South. That March, protesters attempting to march from Selma to the state capital of Montgomery were met with violent resistance by state and local authorities. As the world watched, the protesters (under the protection of federalized National Guard troops) finally achieved their goal, walking around the clock for three days to reach Montgomery. The historic march, and King’s participation in it, greatly helped raise awareness of the difficulty faced by black voters in the South, and the need for a Voting Rights Act, passed later that year.

2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the band that drove the 1970 Billboard smash “Vehicle” to the top of the charts: The Ides Of March. Last Band Standing is a perfectly executed celebration of The Ides Of March history and a showcase of a band still in their prime at 50 years deep. Original members Jim Peterik (also of Survivor fame and songwriter behind “Eye Of The Tiger,” and well as many other chart-toppers), Bob Bergland, Larry Millas, and Mike Borch started as group of teenagers whose love of Rock N Roll and R&B led them to showcases and bandstands around their native Chicago, eventually hitting it big nationally with “Vehicle.” The first four audio discs contain material from across their storied career. Included are Warner Brothers albums Vehicle and Common Bond, first-time-ever releases of the best of their RCA releases World Woven and Midnight Oil ,Spirit Of Chicago. Rarities like “Like It Or Lump It” and “No Two Ways About It” Billboard charter You Wouldn’t Listen . The audio portion is completed with brand new Ides of March tracks, including the brass driven “Who I Am,”Too Far To Turn Around,” and the aptly titled “Last Band Standing,” featuring Steve Cropper – the iconic songsmith of Booker T and the MG’s and organizer of the Blues Brothers. Disc five is a live DVD of The Ides Of March performing 15 of their most iconic songs in an eleven camera shoot at the House Of Blues, Chicago on May 31, 2014. This DVD boasts a slew of extras: archival footage from their TV appearances in the 70's, new interviews, a look behind-the-scenes, a photo collage spanning 50 years ,an exciting new music video for the title track “Last Band Standing.” Showing no signs of slowing down, The Ides Of March, who continue to tour to this day, are truly worthy of the title Last Band Standing. ?
