FR CANTEEN MISSION STATEMENT

Showing support and boosting the morale
of our military and our allied military
and the family members of the above.
Honoring those who have served before.

MUSIC NIGHT
To get you all in the mood
for the music thread
Fabulous FRiday is going to talk about
music of the 60s.
Take a trip back down memory lane.
Or discover some oldies but goodies.

Tonight we check out music of the 60s.

At the beginning of the 1960s,
pop and rock and roll trends of the 1950s continued.
However, the rock and roll of the decade before
started to merge into a more international,
eclectic variant known as rock.

By the mid-1960s, rock and roll in its purest form
was gradually overtaken by pop rock, beat,
psychedelic rock, blues rock and folk rock,
which had grown in popularity.

In the late 1950s, a flourishing culture of groups began to emerge.
Beat bands were heavily influenced by American bands of the era,
such as Buddy Holly and the Crickets
(from which group The Beatles derived their name),
as well as earlier British groups such as The Shadows.
Among the most successful beat acts from Birmingham
were The Spencer Davis Group and The Moody Blues.

The British Invasion: By the end of 1962,
the British rock scene had started
with beat groups like The Beatles
drawing on a wide range of American influences
including soul music, rhythm and blues and surf music.
In mid-1962 The Rolling Stones started as one of a number of groups
increasingly showing blues influence,
along with bands like The Animals and The Yardbirds.

ROCK

FOLK ROCK: By the 1960s,
the scene that had developed out of the American folk music revival
had grown to a major movement, utilizing traditional music
and new compositions in a traditional style,
usually on acoustic instruments.
In the early sixties figures such as Joan Baez and Bob Dylan
had come to the fore in this movement as singer-songwriters.

PSYCHEDELIC ROCK: Psychedelic music's LSD-inspired vibe
began in the folk scene,
with the New York-based Holy Modal Rounders
using the term in their 1964 recording of "Hesitation Blues."
The first group to advertise themselves as psychedelic rock
were the 13th Floor Elevators from Texas,
at the end of 1965; producing an album that made their direction clear,
with The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators the following year.

SURF ROCK: In the early 1960s, one of the most popular forms
of rock and roll was Surf Rock,
which was characterized by being nearly entirely instrumental
and by heavy use of reverb on the guitars.

GARAGE ROCK: Garage rock was a form of amateurish rock music,
particularly prevalent in North America in the mid-1960s
and so called because of the perception that it was rehearsed
in a suburban family garage.

BLUES ROCK: The American blues-rock had been pioneered
in the early 1960s by guitarist Lonnie Mack.

ROOTS ROCK: Roots rock is the term now used to describe
a move away from the excesses of the psychedelic scene,
to a more basic form of rock and roll
that incorporated its original influences,
particularly country and folk music,
leading to the creation of country rock and Southern rock.

PROGRESSIVE ROCK: Progressive rock, sometimes used interchangeably
with art rock, was an attempt to move beyond established
musical formulas by experimenting with different
instruments,song types, and forms.

POP: Chubby Checker during the early 1960s
popularizes the enduring dance craze The Twist
with his hit cover of Hank Ballard's R&B hit "The Twist".
Gerry Goffin and Carole King become a very influential duo in pop music.

R&B and SOUL: The Detroit-based Motown label
was developed as a pop-influenced answer to soul music.
The label began a long run of No. 1 U.S. hit singles in 1961
with "Please Mr. Postman" by The Marvelettes.
Soul music develops popularity throughout the decade,
led by Sam Cooke, James Brown, and Otis Redding, among many others.

COUNTRY MUSIC: The predominant musical style during the decade was
the Nashville Sound, a style that emphasized string sections,
background vocals, crooning lead vocals
and production styles seen in country music.
The style had first become popular in the late 1950s,
in response to the growing encroachment
of rock and roll on the country genre,
but saw its greatest success in the 1960s.


Hope you enjoyed this trip back down memory lane.
Or just learned something new.
If you had a favorite sixties song, put in a request and rock out.

Remember, the Canteen is a family friendly place.
We welcome the military, our allies, and their families.
Continued prayers for the success and completion of your mission.
Prayers for your safe return home.

GOD BLESS AND PROTECT OUR TROOPS!







Sir Winston S. Churchill, KG, OM, CH, TD, PC, DL, FRS, Hon. RA (30 November 1874 – 24 January 1965)

“I would say to the House as I said to those who have joined this government: I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat. We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many long months of struggle and of suffering.

You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: Victory. Victory at all costs — Victory in spite of all terror — Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.”

In the House of Commons, 13May1940




Coronet Winston S. Churchill, 4th Queen's Own Hussars, 1895









Nos genuflectitur ad non princeps sed Princeps Pacem!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

Must retire – the 0500 0430 Reveille approaches relentlessly – the bugler, with an evil sneer on his face, already mounts the parapet. Will chat with you all on the morrow.

Good night, God bless you, and God bless the United States of America!

Godspeed our Troops around the Globe – especially those in harm’s way – by virtue of their service and sacrifice we continue to live in Freedom!
