Born out of the lakeshore city of Muskegon, Inside the Mitten is a concert showcase of Michigan-based musical acts. Inside the Mitten was created by Watermark Live with concerts held at Watermark 920.
Watermark Live's "Inside the Mitten" Concert series is designed to expose the artists who put their experiences of these peninsulas to music. Through a structured, moderated discussion the Michigan-based artists that perform will expound on every facet of what it has taken them to get where they are. Artists are not chosen based on genre, rather they are chosen because they exhibit rare potential. Each concert is unique and makes for a diverse series of shows. Past musical acts ranged from dub step DJ's to folk favorites and hometown legends. The first season of the concert series was an instantaneous success with sell-out shows that featured intimate Concerts with: The Crane Wives, Ida's Rope, Homeless Poet, 5iveit, Chantron, Funktion, Charlie Slick and Thunda Clap, Four Finger Five.
Support Michigan-based artists who take pride in the state by sharing it from the stage. The second season promises more of the same with the fall series featuring:

Inside the Mitten consists of a single moderated set from the opening act and two sets from the featured act. The first set is a discussion between our moderator and the act interlaced in between the songs that tell their story. For the second set, the audience is encouraged to get to know the musical acts by submitting questions to the moderator who presents them to the bands in between songs. Each show makes for a unique set of questions and answers ranging from the prolific to the spontaneous and often hilarious. Each concert is an intimate setting where concert goers have a great night out celebrating Michigan through music and Michigan made beer/wine as they get to know the bands and the stories behind their music.
ABOUT THE MUSIC:
Seth Bernard and the Family Business bring a fresh breath of folk rock and Michigan soul to Charlevoix.
Lake City native Seth Bernard, founder of the Earthwork Music Collective and the Water Festival, has been a professional touring musician and champion of Michigan for the last dozen years or so. Joining renowned Michigan sidemen Dominic Davis (bass), Mike Lynch (keyboards) and Mike Shimmin (drums), who form the "Family Business", Bernard is able to stretch out and showcase his songs in a deep groove created by this rare combination of talents. A gifted songsmith and an excellent and versatile electric guitarist, Bernard is first and foremost a communicator, with a rare ability to inspire and entertain audiences of all ages with his unique blend of passion, enthusiasm and humor. As a band of friends with a great deal of shared experience and mutual respect, Seth Bernard and the Family Business continue to say yes to Michigan and rock the house with energizing music and a positive message of respect and understanding for these times.
Big Dudee Roo's atmospheric folk rock/grunge sound has its origins in the town of Wayland, MI, where all five members were raised and received their public educations. Now based in Grand Rapids and Ann Arbor, it has since grown and expanded throughout the great mitten state and its vibrant musical community. On the band's first full-length release, "Listen to Your Discontent," songwriters Max Lockwood and Nate Wagner deal with themes as wide-ranging as personal and spiritual growth, community and family, "complete with socio-ecological consciousness and positive attempts to find significance in the suffering and disassociation of the modern world" (Recoil Magazine). Aurora Lewis' soulful vocals, Justin Dore's versatile and unique guitar work, and Kurt Rizley's steady driving beats feed off of the songs and take them into full bloom with the distinctive Big Dudee Sound.
