2015 Schedule:

True Blue

Thursday, June 25, 2015
7:30 PM

The 2015 concert series opens with Bluegrass music from the heartland of Michigan!

True Blue is as traditional as a band can get: not soft or polite, but compelling in a way that is both fresh and familiar.  They bring together the three crucial elements of good bluegrass:  instinctive harmonies, soul, and an organic rhythmic feel reminiscent of Flatt & Scruggs. This band is an example of what can happen when people share a musical sensibility and joy in what they are doing.

The Flying Latini Brothers

Thrusday, August 13, 2015
7:30 PM

The 2015 season ends too quickly as the Flying Latini Brothers take the Amphtheater stage.

Fronted by one of Michigan's most talented guitarists and vocalists, John Latini and the band personify the best that the heartland, and especially Michigan’s righteous rock history, have to offer: an honest, straight-ahead, no-nonsense commitment to real songs about real people.

Latini is the purveyor of a slick, blues-soaked, economically hard-driving guitar style— but more than anything he’s an intense, incandescent performer, with an emotional, testosterone-charged voice that the Ann Arbor Observer called “alternately celebratory, remorseful, seductive and dangerous.”
