Guest Editorial... NOT A LONG WAY OFF FOLKS It's Just Next Year by Robert Mirabito Classic Swing Band Concert BOSTON'S NORTH END, THURSDAY, AUGUST 8TM by Ray Barron The famous big band era trumpeter and bandleader Al Natale with his popular 16- piece Classical Swing Band at the Nazzaro Center, 30 North Bennet Street in Boston's North End Thursday, August 8m, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. Admission is free. The concert offers the opportunity to relive the big band era by listening to the original musical arrangements of Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Harry James, Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, Count Basle, Jimmy Dorsey, Les Brown and other notable big bands. It was the music that captured the hearts of young Americans from 1936 to 1945. A noted vocalist Jim Bramante sings some of the romantic songs of that famous era. "It will be truly a music event that will stir the hearts of people of all ages," says AI Natale. For the record, AI Natale, was born and raised in the North End began his music career at the age of 12, playing trumpet for Saint Anthony's School Band. After gradu- ating from Boston Trade High School, Natale began to play professionally for small local bands playing for weddings, anniversaries, etc., and at some of Boston's nightclubs. His reputation as a trumpet player landed him with Larry Flint's Boston RKO Theater's house band. Fast forward, Natale's career was off and running. He wound up playing and traveling with such notable big bands as Jerry Wald, Bobby Sherwood and Bob Chester. The young trumpeter was earn- ing more money than his father who was a barber. The rest is history[ AI Natale became a popular local bandleader, a real estate tycoon, a philanthropist and a mentor for many musicians. Al Natale's Classic Swing Band concert at the Nazzaro Center is sponsored by the North End's Knights of Columbus and the Recording Industries Music Perfor- mance Funds. Today as I look at the "Blame Game" going on at the State House, as they all point the finger at one another, not truly caring about the needs of the people of Massachu- setts, just trying to defeat the hopes of their political opponents. I can't help but think how the good leader- ship of a governor like Charlie Baker could completely change this process. As Governor, Charlie Baker would solve the challenges we face today, not for the simple reason that he knows what is best, but because he knows how to bring everyone together for what is best for all the people. Charlie is not a politi- cian; he is a STATESMAN, and a man who truly cares about all the people of Massachusetts. Between the politicians of today, and the present day media (radio, TV, newspaper, etc.). Government is unknow- ingly creating a silent "divisive warfare" ... rich against poor, citizens against immigrants, race against race, young against old, Democrats against Republicans, and on and on ... In the name of God, it must stop. WE ARE ALL AMERICANS. Charlie, if you run for governor, the people of Massachu- setts will support you...yes the working people, the less fortunate, the jobless, the well-to-do, the senior citizens, the young and all races, nationalities etc. As Shakespeare said so long ago..."There is a tide in the affairs of men which taken at the crest (flood) can lead to great heights"... Please Charlie Baker, run again for governor we need you now...We need a governor, "Of the people, for the people, and by the people" and you are that man. The Boston Friends of Montefalcione, Avellino to Welcome Don Paolo b the Blessed Relic of Sant' Antonio to the North End September 13-15, 2013 The Boston friends of Montefalcione, Avellino are pleased to announce a spe- cial visit from Don Paolo, pas- tor of the Chiesa Di Sant' Antonio in Montefalcione, Italy. Don Paolo who also serves as the Chairman of the Festa di Sant' Antonio in the small mountain town will bring with him the blessed relic of Saint Anthony for a special viewing and Mass on September 15. Together with the mem- bers of Saint Anthony Soci- ety, Fr. Antonio Nardioani and people of Saint Leonard Parish, the Friends of Montefalcione will welcome Don Paolo with a celebratory mass in St. Anthony's honor on Sunday, September 15. A reception and dinner in Don Paolo's honor is also being planned. Information regarding these events will be forth- coming in the next several weeks. Montefalcione, Avellino is the birthplace of many immigrants who settled in the North End of Boston during the last century. As they did in their homeland, a small group of these immi- grants began the annual celebration of the Feast of Saint Anthony in the historic neighborhood in 1919. Today the North End's Saint Anthony's Feast is one of the oldest and largest street festivals in the United States. The Festa in Montefalcione has been cel- ebrated for nearly 400 years by the people of that town. The two feasts are held si- multaneously on the week- end of the last Sunday of August.
