    This is three days of music in three different houses in downtown Grand Rapids. Lots of cool bands, good food, up close and personal. We are talking about pushing the indie music revolution forward!

    Congratulations on your recent chart topping success Rick. Glad things are going well and glad our daughters got to spend some time together in GR. (Tell Adam happy birthday for me).

    Just swinging by to show some love, good vibes as always..would be great if you could take a look at my brand new music video 'Alive or Dead' which tributes my former label boss/friend the late Amy Winehouse:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HrUJcA3wbs

    This is music with heart and soul. With words I can not only understand but even more, they speak "to me". I bought 10 copies of the 1st disc and mailed them to friends and family because I wanted them to have the opportunity to feel how I do when I listen and sing along. If you are moved by music... you owe it to yourself to here what they've got to say. Good luck

Bio: Playing music forged in the heat of real life, the Wealthy Orphans open hearts and unzip heaven. Their songs are lite up with vivid imagery and haunted by enigmatic narratives.
