Knavery is an alternative rock band based out of Dayton, OH. They join @theizzyrock at DATV to discuss the release of their new EP, “Grown” being released on September 6, 2019.
We learn the origin of the band, touring, rig rundown, and hear the new EP.
This Labor Day, the Gem City Podcast honors our most memorable workers: the engineers that made Dayton famous! They collectively saved Dayton from future floods, invented flight, got cars on the streets, put cash registers in stores and left the citizens of Dayton a gorgeous landmark that is a modern day hidden gem. Our guest Brian Petro joins us to share the secrets of this amazing place and invite you in to see it for yourself!
After the 1913 Flood, Dayton could have withered. Local industries could have abandoned Dayton and sought higher ground. Instead something extraordinary happened. The collective brain power behind Dayton’s thousand competing factories banded together to rebuild their city and tame the river for good.
The Engineer’s Club, founded in 1914 by Col. Edward Deeds and Charles Kettering, The roots of the Engineers’ Club were in the “Barn Gang” which included Dayton Ohio inventors and industrialists John Patterson and aviation pioneer Orville Wright.
From the classic Georgian exterior to the Tudor and Federal interior, the Engineers Club building is an architectural landmark in Dayton, now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It’s even located on historic land. The Dayton settlement began in 1796 almost precisely where the present-day Engineers Club now sits.
This landmark and club offers members and their guests access to a multi-use historic space. For professionals looking for a classic place to lunch and do business, to brides and grooms looking for a grand and gorgeous space for weddings, The Engineer’s Club is an amazing space in the heart of downtown Dayton!

Shrug have been making music in Dayton since the 90’s. @theizzyrock gets the lowdown of their origin story, rig rundown, and we discuss their new album, “Easy Is The New Hard” on Magnaphone Records.
Shrug return with their proverbial “White Album”…or perhaps their “Sandanista”. Easy is the New Hard isn’t decidedly Beatlesesque and though The Clash have always been an influence, it doesn’t really sound like their 1980 triple album. Rather, it’s comparable as a stylistically diverse effort that spans multiple sides of vinyl and explores the band’s deepest roots and most adventurous writing. Songwriter/guitarist Tod Weidner clearly enjoyed a major bout of inspiration following the release of 2016’s Age of Ashes, and it’s been captured here.
In truth, it’s still a solid rock album at its core and remains faithful to what the band does best. Fans aren’t going to feel alienated here. However, the influences of glam, psychedelia and Laurel Canyon have never been more evident. As Weidner puts it, “there is a lot of ‘swirl’ on this record.” It’s fun, fresh, instantly classic, and still wholly Shrug.
The mission of The Disability Foundation is to enhance the quality of life for persons with disabilities by complementing public benefits through the prudent management of financial resources.
If you love someone with a disability or are planning for the long-term care of a family member, you know it’s important to cover basic and daily needs, but you also want to ensure the enrichment and quality of life of the person so you can be confident they are living life to the fullest without concern for how their needs or wants will be met.
At the Disability Foundation, a supporting organization to the Dayton Foundation, we work with families to ensure their resources are utilized for the things that matter most to them and their family. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for persons with disabilities by complementing public benefits through the prudent management of financial resources. To do this, the Foundation acts as Distribution Trustee of The Ohio Community Pooled Annuity Trust and the Ohio Community Pooled Flexible-Spending Trust.
What this means, is that you can set aside resources for the care, entertainment, daily needs and life’s little extras without interfering with SSI or Medicaid benefits. This became possible in 1993 when Congress authorized the creation of “pooled” trusts to hold funds for people with disabilities without penalty to their benefits. Ohio, in cooperation with the Medicaid program, recognizes and exempts these trusts.
The Disability Foundation is a Type I Supporting Organization under the auspices of The Dayton Foundation. The Disability Foundation maintains its own tax exempt status (501 (c)(3), however the Dayton Foundation oversees daily activities and monitors its finances. The Dayton Foundation appoints all board members. At least one board member of The Disability Foundation is a staff member of The Dayton Foundation.
