Start Independence Week off the right way with groovy, upbeat, hip-hop jazz and a free concert by Rodney Block & The Real Music Lovers! Along with surprise guests, the group is set to give another standout performance on Monday, July 1, at 7 p.m. in AETN Studios. Come grab your seats when the doors open at 6:30 p.m. We know they'll be going fast!

Taped in celebration of the 10th anniversary season of "AETN Presents" (which will premiere in November), Rodney and the gang are bringing a high energy party to our headquarters' studios. Block, a native of Dumas, and his core ensemble -including Sam Carroll on keyboards, Jonathon Burks on drums and Oliver "OT" Thomas on bass - have been performing together across Arkansas, the South and abroad for five years. Their unique sound and bond show in their latest album, "Steel," and are sure to come across on the stage. From up tempo jazz to ballads - including pieces from the new album - it's a show not to be missed!

Arkansas and the American Dream
We’re all familiar with the American Dream — the idea that anyone in the United States can climb the economic ladder of opportunity — but is it still achievable? AETN continues to address poverty in the state with “A Deeper Look: The American Dream in Arkansas” and to survey the national landscape with “Dream On.” Learn more about these projects and a special night of programming after the jump.

You can have fun, help others and support causes and organizations by sharing a bit of your spare time and volunteering! Learn how you (or your group) can help others — and yourself — by working with AETN Foundation.
