Save the Date for the WOVI LeadersRing —
“Stoking the Fires of Leadership”
Once again, it’s time to save the date for an outstanding WOVI
LeadersRing! The next LeadersRing will be held on January 19, 2019, from 1-3 pm at On the Border in Addison.
We all know that the heartbeat of WOVI is mentoring. But WOVI is also about promoting leadership skills, and the LeadersRing is one of the places we do that. Are you a Chapter officer? Are you interested in becoming a Chapter officer? Are you interested in learning leadership skills to enhance your job and your life? Then you need to attend this LeadersRing!
We have a jam-packed two hours planned:
An outstanding presentation on Emotional Intelligence, presented by new Management Council President Charlene Burroughs
A stimulating MentoRing exercise
WOVI Moments, an icebreaker exercise, door prizes and much more
And best of all, the chance to visit with WOVI women!
But there’s more! If you’re a Chapter President, our Chairman and co-founder Pauline Shirley will be holding a PresidentsRing beginning at 12 pm. Chapter Presidents, this is your chance to sit down and discuss your plans, goals and challenges with Pauline. And this time, we’re expanding this to include all Chapter officers. At the same time as the PresidentsRing, we’ll be having breakout sessions for all other Chapter offices. This is your chance to sit down with members of the Board and Management Council to discuss the challenges and triumphs you’ve encountered in your office.
We’ll be sending out more information and registration details very soon. For now, mark your calendar for January 19 and make plans to attend the LeadersRing!

Jim Suhler and his band Monkey Beat have been on the music scene now for over twenty two years and have built a fanbase worldwide. The Dallas, Texas based group are known for their no holds barred approach to blues inspired rock ‘n roll and roots music. Their four Lucky Seven releases, two releases on Underworld Records and Jim’s solo acoustic CD ‘Dirt Road’ on Topcat records have shown an amazing depth of songwriting and playing, and their constant touring both in North America and Europe has garnered many admirers and accolades.
The band has worked in the past with noted producers Terry Manning (ZZ Top, Led Zeppelin, Stax records, etc.), and Jim Gaines (Santana, Stevie Ray Vaughan) and Grammy Award winning producer/songwriter Tom Hambridge. Jim is also well known as lead guitarist with George Thorogood & the Destroyers since 1999, and has had his songs used in feature films (Spun, Wallace & Grommit) and is a multiple nominee in the prestigious Dallas Observer Music Awards, plus he is a member of BUDDY, Texas’ oldest music magazine Texas Tornado Hall of Fame.
Music has always been a part of Brandon Miller’s life. From an early age, his dad would let him explore his record collection of Led Zeppelin, Genesis, Aerosmith and other classic rock legends. Miller spent countless days and nights trying to recreate the sounds of his musical heroes. After sculpting his sound for years, he formed the Brandon Miller Band, a powerful, guitar-driven blues-rock trio. Having released two, full-length albums and sharing the stage with artists like Jonny Lang, Foghat, Night Ranger and Eddie Money; Brandon Miller brings a fiery passion to the guitar that is unlike any other.
Born April 8th, 1990, Brandon grew up listening to classic rock from the 60s and 70s because of his parents love for music. Listening to the rock n roll stories of disc jockeys from a famous Kansas City radio station just stirred the fire of his love for music even more. When he first began elementary school, his older brother had begun playing guitar. Brandon would sneak into his brothers room to grab his guitar just to play around with it. Driving his brother mad because of his always wanting to play, Brandon received his first guitar for Christmas when he was seven.
His love for music quickly turned to dedication and devotion after he started attending concerts at a very young age. Seeing idols such as Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Eric Clapton, Joe Bonamassa, Tom Petty, Aerosmith, KISS, Rush, Fleetwood Mac, and Lynyrd Skynyrd, he wanted to take it to the next level of playing. He was learning very quickly and could start playing songs he was listening to. However, when he was around the age of 11, his frustration began to show. He couldn’t recreate the solos and difficult guitar work which made him sit his guitar down and didn’t want to touch it. He didn’t play as much as what he used to and the music bug hadn’t completely bit him yet.
Shortly after he turned thirteen in seventh grade, the music bug bit him deeply and over the summer his talent exploded. He would sit and practice for hours upon hours. Some days he would practice up to ten hours, and soon he was recreating what before he couldn’t. He began going to blues jam sessions around Kansas City where he began to gain popularity with his audiences in large part due to his young age and immense talent. Quickly he realized that his age always presented some problems when clubs and bars would not let him into play until they witnessed his precocious ability first hand. At these jams, he met some of the most influential musicians in his career. With these musicians, he discovered his true love blues. He could be found during his middle school years not listening to what was popular at school dances or on the pop radio stations, but listening to legendary blues artists such as Robert Johnson, Albert King, Freddie King, Howlin Wolf, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, and many more. One artist stuck out the most, Stevie Ray Vaughan. Listening to how he put all of his emotions into his playing inspired Brandon to do the same to spread the blues and bring it back to Kansas City.
Over the next few years, audiences would come from throughout the Kansas City area to see this young guitar-slinger play the blues. He became a part of several different local cover bands around the city. The ReHabaneros play some tunes by his biggest influences consisting Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and The Allman Brothers. His other side projects, Stairway to Zeppelin and Almost KISS tribute bands, give him an opportunity to focus on the stage show and appreciate what makes an all-around great show. His first band, Static 210, was members from his high school class who reached high success through their original music around Kansas City. Soon enough he was playing every weekend and spreading his music in general and his blues in particular to many. After achieving major popularity, he experienced the unique opportunity to perform at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater prior to such acts as Aerosmith, Def Leppard, Motley Crue, and Journey as well as to share the stage with Eddie Money at the Uptown Theater, and open for other national touring acts Jonny Lang, Royal Southern Brotherhood, Leann Womack and Jo Dee Mesina.
Brandon currently performs with his own band, Brandon Miller Band, as well as the Danielle Nicole Band.
