It's that time of the year.

  • We are building and hiring bands for special events.
  • We are assisting several venues to find entertainment.
  • We have bands forming and reorganizing, looking to add or replace players and/or vocalists, and
  • Vocalists and players hoping to find just the right band to perform with.

So if any of this sounds like something appealing or useful to you, write us, and let's talk.

Would you like to go out for a civilized New Years Eve gathering?

Hotel Indigo is just the place.

Instead of a drunken raucous obnoxious crowd, we are offering a more delightful gathering of community, family, and friends.

Throughout the evening we will be featuring cocktail specials, live music that you can enjoy and still carry on a conversation with, and we'll even offer you a glass of complimentary champagne to toast the New Year in at midnight.

The best part! NO COVER CHARGE

Whenever possible, it is probably best to just say “no” to outdoor winter events in cold climates. It’s simply not a smart idea to play outdoor shows in the dead of winter, period. It’s tough on your instruments. It’s tough on audio gear. It’s tough on your hands. It’s tough on your lungs. It’s just plain tough.

Join us at Rare Bird Brewpub for a party and performance of our long-awaited EP, "Growing Pains"! We're excited to share this release with you at a place we call home!

This is a FREE event! Copies of the album will be availble at the party, and also here:

Rare Bird Brewpub, 229 Lake Ave, Traverse City, Michigan 49684

Ryan McMahon - Drums
Joe Vasquez - Bass
Dutcher Snedecker - Keys

We are currently auditioning bands for consideration to perform at upcoming gigs.

Our focus at the moment is on two piece up to six piece bands. A limited number of solo singer-songwriters are needed as well.

Please email us a link where we may audition your music samples. Also send biographical information, and a photo (if no image is provided in the links you send us).

In late October, we will be hosting our next Freshwater Events musicians showcase.

We invite Event and Wedding planners as well as business owners/managers who contract for live music to join us.

We are proud of our outstanding musicians, and look forward to this opportunity to show them off.

We'll be taking registrations to attend this FREE event in September.
