"we found the bright lights alluring and full of promise around every corner; music of several genres greeted our ears within a short walking distance...My personal favorite stop was inside Alabaster's Coffee and Tea Company. The atmosphere was abuzz with table and counter chat as Michael Sweigard took the microphone and began strumming a song."
“Local musician Michael Sweigard will perform at 7 p.m. Jan. 7 at the Alabaster Coffee Roaster and Tea Co., 410 Pine St. Friend and fellow musician Kyle Anspach will join Sweigard for the performance. Sweigard likens the music he writes to a young child. "Some songs are born and they grow, while others need a lot of attention and discipline," he said. According to Sweigard, his music and songs aren't always happy, but they're not meant to be downers either. He said they're meant to be transparent. "Sometimes things can be said in music easier than in conversation," he said. "The communication takes on a whole new dimension."”
