ABOUT THE MUSIC:
About Four Finger Five: Muskegon's Own Four Finger Five is armed with an arsenal of tightly arranged tracks that continue to defy categorization. For the "Inside the Mitten" show Four Finger Five is arranging a tell-all look at the band and their experiences to date. Four Finger Five has a few surprises up their sleeve complete with special guests all rolled in to a Four Finger Five musical retrospective.

Four Finger Five is a force with which to be reckoned. Their sound is more satisfying than ever a fusion of The Police, Red Hot Chili Peppers and the John Mayer Trio. They stroll out to stage in a suit and tie then command their set with a bigger than three sound expertly finessing a rapt audience.

With their new release "Soul in a Suitcase" this engrossing and trend setting act has raised the bar. Just when everyone thought they knew Four Finger Five, with two award winning full length records, an EP and over seven years of live shows, the band is starting to eclipse their Billboard magazine title "Top five up and coming festival bands" into a realm that is wider and more distinct. www.fourfingerfive.com

ABOUT CHARLIE SLICK AND THUNDA CLAP:
Charlie Slick is a prolific musical entity often outcast by both electronic outfits and the punk rock scene. Slick has worked tirelessly to develop a cult following of teenage girls, DIY nerds, and stay-at-home moms, all of whom seem to relate to his quirky un-cool and yet showy approach to music and performance.

Slick and Thunda Clap mix homegrown electronics with rusty saxophone and dank synthesizers. In recent years, Slick has risen up from playing primarily basement dance parties to mostly larger venues, though the stage rarely keeps him off the floor. He engages the audience to dance with him--frequently shirtless, sweaty, and covered in glitter.

Slick's storied past of boombox hijacking, robots, bubble machines, light machines, rapping, and sweat inducing electronic dance party chaos, makes him hard to nail down, which even he attempts to reconcile in a simple summarizing statement: "we are not a rock n roll band, we are the tribe from 3005." www.charlieslick.com
