J Roddy Walston & the Business

- What’s their business?: southern rock and enterprise risk management.
- How journalists describe them: “AC/DC fronted by Jerry Lee Lewis”
- Essential tracks: “Don’t Break the Needle,” which starts with laid back honky-tonk piano, but veers quickly into stomp and clap territory; the howling vocals of “Brave Man’s Death”
- How to spot the band on the road: look for their ride—a Ford Econoline Club Wagon that was previously the van for Hamilton Cove Christian Academy and was profiled in the New York Times<p>
Old National Centre
Old National Centre was originally built in 1909 as the Murat Shrine, which housed Indianapolis’s growing population of Freemasons. The building has since been restored and has become an eye-catching display of diverse architectural influences. Outside of the venue, spindly towers topped with light-blue domes rise above the street, beckoning passersby to enter the theater and enjoy a show. The classic, opulent Grand Lobby opens up to a wealth of concert venues, exhibition halls, and ballrooms that astound visitors with Middle Eastern and Victorian designs.
