LINDSAY LOU & THE FLATBELLYS
Hailing from all corners of the Great Lakes State of Michigan, Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys are giving a nod to American traditional music, while boldy taking their own songs in new directions. Distinct vocals, tight harmonies, instrumental expertise, and creative arrangements are all essential characteristics of their unique sound. The group focuses on the original tunes of Lindsay Lou Rilko, which include true-life tales of bank-robbing aunties, moonshinin' grandpas, and celebrations of love, life, and nature. Don't be surprised to hear bluegrass standards, Beatles hits, and contemporary classics at a Flatbelly's show as well. It's an infectious vibe that could only have been born in the heart of America's Fresh Coast! (http://www.lindsayloumusic.com/)
SONG OF THE LAKES
Meet Song of the Lakes. A band that's not afraid to show its emotions, as they belt out sea shanties, seduce you with a sultry Brazilian melody, or break your heart with a bittersweet ballad.
The band made itself a name with sea shanties and Irish melodies in the early 1980s, but its range has widened enormously in the 25-year span the band has been together. They've delved into acoustic rock, Latin, jazz, and what they call Great Lakes World Music.
No matter what you decide to call the band's music, you'll love the revival quality that runs through all the songs. Their music is uplifting and transcending. It will take you to a different place, and you're probably going to want to stay there. The band members, Lisa, Rick, Mike and Ingemar, live the good life and sing the praises of the gorgeous Great Lakes. When they say, "25 Years of Joy," they mean it from the depths of their deep blue hearts.
The band has five recordings to its credit, all with a mix of original and traditional songs. (http://www.songofthelakes.com/)
