Event

The Yellow Room Gang featuring Jan Krist, Jim Bizer, Matt Watroba, Kitty Donohoe and David Barrett
In December of 2005, 8 Michigan songwriters gathered in the brilliantly yellow living room of David Tamulevichs Ann Arbor home for the first time. Theyve been meeting monthly ever since, to share dinner, conversation and the newest song they have in the process for critique. Each an accomplished songwriter and performer in their own right, they create a unique atmosphere of respect and support, friendship and generosity finding new and unexpected ways to explore beyond their previous personal boundaries.

It wasnt long before they began performing together and presenting workshops in various configurations.

What began as a casual excuse to get together with friends has evolved into one of the most exciting super groups to ever join forces on one stage.

Jan Krist is a Detroit-area songwriter who has garnered lots of national attention. In 1991 Jan made a splash at the Kerrville Folk Festival. In addition to being a four-time Detroit Music Award winner, Entertainment Weekly praised her breathtaking vocal leaps and said that she makes soul-searching more enjoyable than it has any right to be. Billboard Magazine called her Unreservedly recommended (She) Writes songs of failure and grace as seen from the perspective of a mid-western soul; songs with  lyrical intelligence The Phantom Tollbooth

Jim Bizer loves to make music  his masterful performances and award-winning songs bear this out. Combining a vast musical knowledge with thoughtful and humorous lyrics, he concocts songs that are both beautiful and startling. You never quite know what will come out of his mouth, or his guitar, next.

Knocked me out. Very impressive! Rod Kennedy, Kerrville Folk Festival

Matt Watroba sings and writes songs of compassion, inner strength, humor, and every day living. He sings songs that you will feel and remember for a long time. You will love his music, you will love the journey that his music takes you on, and you will love the place that his music takes you to. Watroba turns to vintage country on his latest album, and he has produced one of the best under-the-radar musical gems to come along in quite some timehighly recommended.Dirty Linen

Kitty Donohoe is an award-winning songwriter with three critically acclaimed albums to her credit, who successfully merges her Celtic and American roots in her music. (The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, Michigan Chapter, Presented Kitty with an Emmy in June 2002 for her 9-11 song There Are No Words).

rich, soaring, hauntingone of those rare voices.
Victory Music Review

Her songwriting clearly reflects both her Irish and her American roots. Her natural sense as a storyteller merges with a love of language and an ear for melodies to create songs about the aspects of life that move most of us, from everyday to the rarer moments we encounter.

David Barrett is a EMMY-award winning composer/songwriter, whose work ranges from Olympic themes to PBS scores. His best known composition One Shining Moment, recorded by Luther Vandross, is an annual ritual for those who view the NCAA tournament on CBS. He has performed extensively as a solo act with Art Garfunkel as well as a host of others.

A mature artist waiting for some wider recognition. Billboard Magazine
