whqr http://whqr.org en Soup To Nuts Live!: Mac & Juice Quartet http://whqr.org/post/soup-nuts-live-mac-juice-quartet <p>Beginning as an acoustic duo over a decade ago, <strong>Mac &amp; Juice</strong> now travel the countryside as a quartet (acoustic and electric), playing original music described as “a broad-spectrum, rock &amp; roll mosaic” with a vast stylistic range. Their latest release,&nbsp;<em>Step Into The Light</em>, is a mélange of genres that runs the gamut – from Stevie Wonder to Merle Haggard, with hook-laden songwriting and elements of bluegrass, jazz and Americana throughout. &nbsp;Every show is a surprise, and this episode of Soup To Nuts Live! will be no different.</p> Tue, 04 Feb 2014 21:00:00 +0000 Lan Nichols 49934 at http://whqr.org Soup To Nuts Live!: Mac & Juice Quartet Weigh in on Recycling and Solid Waste Management in New Hanover County http://whqr.org/post/weigh-recycling-and-solid-waste-management-new-hanover-county <p>New Hanover County is seeking public feedback on new strategies that will affect recycling operations, landfill space and other aspects of countywide waste management.
