MAHA 2011 Had Everything (Except the Crowds)

The weather was perfect. The bands were awesome. And the crowd was ... well, it could have been bigger.

The final "official" head count, according to MAHA Music Festival organizer Tre Brashear, was 4,000, "slightly down from last year."

A disappointment, and yet, by all other accounts, this year's MAHA, held last Saturday at Stinson Park in Aksarben Village, was a success, certainly from a...

All Systems Go for MAHA Music Festival

When the first band takes the stage at this year's MAHA Music Festival (at exactly 12:30 p.m. this Saturday), event organizers can take pride in knowing they've pulled together a program that not only tops last year's event, but also establishes itself as the area's premiere indie music festival.

Filling in some blanks as we head into two weeks' of MAHA Music Festival coverage ...

Live Reviews: Omaha Girls Rock and Playing With Fire

I can only imagine what it was like backstage at the Omaha Girls Rock (OGR) showcase moments before the night's first band, The Jellybeans, took the stage. Utter chaos? Faces gripped in panic-fear? Tears? Nervous laughter? 

For most of the 24 girls who took part in the inaugural OGR band camp, it would be their first time on any stage. Many had never held an instrument before signing up. Now...

Big Harp: One Attempt at a Perfect Life

Somewhere on a sun-baked highway in Southern California drives the Senseney family. Presumably in a mini-van.

Behind the wheel is father, Chris, navigating the straight-arrow route from their home in Los Angeles to Palm Springs. His wife, Stefanie Drootin-Senseney, leans over and adjusts a strap on the car seat that holds baby Twila, age 11 months. Brother Hank, who will be 3 in September,...
