Jumping at Jukes

Playing a fun gig with our friends The Four Lincolns tonight at Juke's. Our friends The Wild Woodys are playing down the street at the Tip Top Deluxe Bar & Grill. What a great night for some live music!

Valentine's Day Hop

Looking forward to a swinging Valentine's Day Hop at Montcalm Community College on Friday the 17th. Hoping for a good turnout and know that this is going to be a cool night. Free to all and our show is from 7pm-9pm. Did I mention this is free!! No reason not to be there.

Lindy Hop

We had a great night sharing the stage with The Real Fantastics at the Tip Top. We're back there (Tip Top Deluxe Bar & Grill) to play a show for the Lindy Hop group. The Tip Top hosts the swing dancers and we do a free gig for them on Tuesdays just for fun. They are a great group and Ted Smith is a great host for these folks. Come on down. 2/7/2012 and we start at 8:30.

The Real Fantastics

Gearing up for our show tomorrow night at the Tip Top Deluxe Bar & Grill. We will be welcoming The Real Fantastics from Kalamazoo with their mix of Funk and Motown. We are really looking forward to sharing the stage with them again. Bass is in the shop getting the bridge refitted. Should be good to go and this will be a killer show.

Bridge collapse

Warming up on the stage at the Tip Top Deluxe Bar & Grill in Grand Rapids when the bridge on the upright collapsed! Strings, bridge, pickup and wiring all in a heap. Got it all put back together to start the show, but there were some pretty shocked faces in the audience (it made one hell of a sound). Night came off just fine for the Lindy Hop folks. Another good Tuesday at the Tip Top
