Great time at Longbranch! On to Cabrini fundraiser!

Well, it was one for the books for our April 2 gig at the Longbranch Saloon in Carleton. Great place, as always, with a slew of friends out to see the blues! A big surprise for all of us was Mickey St. Claire, co-founder and original drummer for Howlin Mercy sitting in for a few tunes! Just like 1994 all over again! We really appreciated all the support this time at Longbranch and we look forward to getting back there again soon! On April 23, we will be doing a fundraiser for Cabrini High School’s Athletic Boosters in Allen Park. Gonna be a heavy blues night for a good cause! Watch the website for more information soon! Support your local music scene and we’ll see you around town! Don’t forget to mark your calendar for Grosse Ile’s Islandfest on May 21 and the Motor City Casino on June 20!
