Fresh from recording their new EP, Bobblehead returns to the Batesville Market! Combining influences like the Beatles, Devo, B-52’s, Cole Porter, Kate Bush, the Clash, and Elvis Costello, even Charo and Don Knotts, Bobblehead offers a sound that fits no radio station genre. Instead, they’ve thrown ‘em all down on the floor and picked 'em up in no particular order!

Featuring Charlottesville's Frank Bechter (Mojo Pie, Das Homage, Oh Wow Boy!) on vocals, guitar and bass; Douglas Bishop, also on vocals, guitar, bass and bringing his musical skills from Austin and Kansas City; and David Jacobs (Sally Rose Band, Mojo Pie) on drums…they’re sensual, they’re raunchy, and they’ll make you gyrate wildly.

Here's what Facebook folks are saying: “Original!” “Unique!” “Beautiful voice stuff going on!” “A band I can actually listen to.” “Each song is a journey.” “Seriously well-crafted songs with killer rocking hooks and clever lyrics.”

Come check out their raw harmonies and Mississippi swamp rock boogie. Here's a sample! Bobblehead, "All the Love" www.facebook.com/bobblingheads/videos/488621511536776/

Views From The Ice: Bering Glacier, Alaska
Local photo journalist Bill Reckert is exhibiting his collection of dramatic photographs of Alaska’s Bering Glacier here at Batesville during the month of February. Mr. Reckert will also be giving a presentation about his work on February 4th at 1:30 PM.

Bering Glacier is the largest temperate glacier on earth covering approximately 2,000 square miles. It originates in the mountainous region of eastern Alaska and western Canada; and flow to sea level near Seal River and the Gulf of Alaska.

Most of the world’s thousands of glaciers flow only a few inches a day. A rare few alternate between virtual stagnation with little perceptible flow for decades and then sudden very rapid movement where the ice may be displaced up to several miles in a few months. Such is Alaska’s Bering glacier.

This remote treacherous area can only be accessed by light aircraft and helicopter. Mr. Reckert, former Senior Photographer with the Federal Emergency Management Agency and photographer with the United States Geological Survey, has documented the majestic splendor of Bering Glacier. His exhibit will be displayed at the Market throughout February.
