Personal note: I remember being introduced to Fleetwood Mac circa mid to late 70’s. I was visiting a friend of mine who had a place many of us would often gather at in those days. We’d hang out, listen to music and indulge in a few adult beverages and such. I recall asking him ‘Who is that?” when he had put on their self titled album that preceded Rumours.“You ask me that every time,” he laughed and showed me the cover. “Now remember this!”
I did. Still love their music. Even had the chance to see them in GR. Crummy seats but great music. Then last week I ran into longtime Dogwood volunteer Rob Johnston who told me about the upcoming Fleetwood Mac Tribute show. “Should be a good one,” he said.
I was all over it. I checked out a video via youtube and liked what I heard. Ready to call and reserve a couple seats, I glanced at my phone calendar and saw that we will be out of town that weekend ensconced on Beaver Island visiting our smart, good looking and highly likable grandkids… and their parents.
Thus, I am imploring all FleetMac fans out there to get your tickets and sell the show out so quickly that bringing them back will be a must.
Selfish reasons to be sure, but when it comes to Fleetwood Mac music?
I truly have no pride-KD
Here’s the skinny on the show:
Kait Rose and the Band of Thorns will perform a "Fleetwood Mac Tribute" on the Dogwood Center's Main Stage on Saturday, September 23 at 7:30 p.m.
Kait Rose has been playing guitar and writing songs since the summer of 2001 after finding her mom's Alvarez in the hallway closet. To date, Kait has recorded seven full length solo-albums in various basements and attics of friends and family members from Indianapolis to Seattle, Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids. Her most recent release (2022) is “Balance,” and it was nominated for Album of the Year at the WYCE Jammies.
“We started doing the "Fleetwood Mac Tribute" four years ago,” says Rose. “We had no idea it was going to be so popular. The people who come to these shows are really big Fleetwood Mac fans. It’s been extraordinary."
Kait and the band have a busy summer and fall performing across Michigan including popular festivals such as Hoxeyville Music Festival, Wheatland Music Festival and Earthwork Harvest Gathering.
Tickets are $17.50 and are available online at www.dogwoodcenter.com, at the Dogwood Box Office, or at NCCA-Artsplace in downtown Fremont, or just click here.
