Quad-Cities Performers Reflect on What Missing Audiences Means

June 11th, 2020

What a difference a year makes… On June 11, 2019, I was lucky enough to be among the 11,000 or so packed into Moline’s TaxSlayer Center (11th row center on the floor) to witness the first (and possibly last) performance of Sir Paul McCartney and his band in the Quad-Cities. It was an electrifying, unforgettable night – not least of which was due to the jaw-dropping lighting and multimedia displays, including a breathtaking pyrotechnic extravaganza during “Live and Let Die.” Part of what made it so thrilling was simply being in “the room where it happened,” celebrating a musical legend... Read More

Quad-Cities’ Peaceful Protest Provides Powerful Lesson

May 30th, 2020

It was baby’s first protest. My daughter,  Harper, is 6, and didn’t quite understand why we were there but she knew it was important and it was for some guy who died. Kids have empathy so she was on board. It was really something to see. And her reaction to it was awesome. She somehow got it. And it wasn’t hard to grasp the importance and grace of the event. Downtown Davenport. A beautiful Saturday evening. The streets filled with people. It could’ve been any other Saturday night, pre-covid, in the summer, during a festival, or even just a nice evening with the streets... Read More

QC Views: Sherrard, Illinois

May 12th, 2020

Each week QuadCities.com contributor Tristan Tapscott will release a series of photos from cities in and around the Quad Cities.  When people ask me what my childhood was like I immediately refer to Mark Twain and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Wildly adventurous, borderline redneck, extremely comfortable and oddly serene. That was life in Sherrard, Illinois, my hometown. I grew up in a small hamlet of under 700 people in the middle of nowhere Illinois just outside the Quad Cities metro area. It was roughly 25 (or more) minutes from everywhere, a place where nobody locked their doors, darkness... Read More
