WARDSBORO—On Friday, June 22, The Wyld Nightz Band returns for Wardsboro Curtain Call’s annual dance party.

The dance party will be held in the Wardsboro Town Hall Café, Main Street, Wardsboro. There will be a potluck supper before the show, so doors will open at 6 p.m., and music begins at 7. Bring your favorite dish to share — and your dancing shoes. BYOB. Admission is $15 at the door.

This year, the music series also serves as a fundraising vehicle benefiting Wardsboro Fire and Rescue. A donation “Fireman’s Boot” will be available for all those who wish to make a contribution to Wardsboro Fire and Rescue.

The Wyld Nightz Band was formed more than 10 years ago in Brattleboro. Founding members Michael McKinney (guitar, trumpet, vocals) and Jeff Brewer (guitar, vocals) have worked to emphasize dance music with exciting ensemble playing.

Fred “Freighttrain” Epstein (drums) and Matt Martyn (bass guitar) anchor the rhythm section, while keyboard duties and vocals are covered by Tony Speranza. Anthony Speranza Jr. appears regularly on alto and tenor saxophones.

With “more than 150 years of combined performing experience,” according to a news release, The Wyld Nightz Band has won best band honors in 2015, 2016, and 2017 in the Best of Brattleboro Reader’s Choice Awards.

Kudos to the Boston Globe for encouraging newspapers across the country to remind us all of the value of a free press, and to the Commons for hearing that call. The NYTimes article, A Free Press Needs You, concludes with the following: \"If you haven’t already, please subscribe to your local papers. Praise them when you think they’ve done a good job and criticize them when you think they could do better. We’re all in this together.\" Today I plan to subscribe.

Thank you for your efforts to disseminate the news of the day and resist the hate-filled and deceitful rhetoric of this administration. I cannot believe, still, in this country that it is necessary for the press and regular citizens to defend themselves. Only one quarter or less of the citizens believe a word he says yet you are forced to defend yourselves because his speech is so incediary. The press is now officially our last line of defense.

Spot on...thank you for challenging those who would blanketly dismiss your opinion/facts to do their own \"facts checking\". Unfortunately I fear many if not most of these sheep will be lead to slaughter thinking that they are going to the trough.

Foreign hand on the scale isn’t an unbiased conclusion. You argument might be more forceful without highlighting this issue.
