Occidental Gypsy returns to the Dogwood Saturday night and will bring their unique sound to the club-like atmosphere of the Black Box.
We caught them first time around and still proudly wear the t-shirt purchased after a performance that left a grateful crowd wanting more (see photo above).
The tshirt has been spotted by others in some out of the way places and we’ve been met with comments like ‘Hey, I know that band. Those guys are great.’ or ‘We saw them in ___ a while back. Great show.’ or sometimes ‘Don’t you think a wedding requires a bit better clothing than a tshirt?’.
7:30pm and get ready to channel your inner Django.
If you haven’t experienced the Acoustic Lunch series at Newaygo Brewing Co this would be an outstanding weekend to take in some fine music along with an ever evolving menu of food and drink inspired by imagination and innovation.
Tuneswise, Travis Radaz is back in town after a long summer tour with the Kari Lynch Band of GR. Travis mixes the hard edge of a rock n roll with the poise of a thoughtful songwriter. Most of his time is spent as the lead guitarist in the Kari Lynch Band, and Travis spends his off season from touring playing solo acoustic shows, playing original music and covering hits from the 70s to today.
A most pleasing musical atmosphere and the victuals are stellar.
