Gunnar & the Grizzly Boys~10pm
Like the apple of your eye, Gunnar & The Grizzly Boys (GGB) are just what the doctor ordered!
GGB have fashioned a style that leader Gunnar Nyblad describes as, “Country music with a Michigan root.
In other words, GGB’s country rocks! With a young beat and a driving force, the honest storytelling grabs your attention while the music makes you smile. The energy of a live Grizzly Boys show explodes into the audience like a dose of adrenalin.
Gunnar, who still farms the family apple and fruit orchards he’s been working all his life, is the conductor and lyrical leader of this band of Michiganders who came together during stages of his young life. While attending Michigan State University for an agricultural degree, Gunnar introduced his childhood friend, bass player Rob Mason (Kent City, MI) to his college buddies, lead guitarist Shane Grehan (Alpena, MI); guitarist/keyboardist Chris Newberg (Rockford, MI); and drummer Joe Connolly (Rochester Hills, MI).
Gunnar and Rob had sung together and been in a Blink 182-styled band when they were youngsters. But deep in his heart, Gunnar knew that he had, indeed, been country his whole life and he put together the band that could convey the sound fans around Michigan wanted to hear.
Formed in 1985, Infinity grew from being not only a Journey Tribute band, but one of the top drawing cover – bands in the Midwest.Two-plus decades rocking the hundreds of local music festivals lighting up the Chicago suburbs each summer have put Infinity in front of hundreds of thousands of fans. Consequently, the band has built an incredible following, making them the Top most successful cover bands in the nation’s third-largest metropolis. Infinity continues to break attendance records at Clubs and Festivals across Chicago and the Midwest. But more importantly, Infinity maintains the intangible ability to include the audience and make them feel as if they are part of the show. A quote from the Lead singer Bob ” this is not our show, it’s yours” Infinity enjoys thousands of fans young and young at heart, who sing along and become the chorus to their music. This is the difference between performers and genuine entertainers. Perhaps this is the reason for the perpetual following and return to area Festivals and Clubs across the Midwest year after year after year.
Here Come the Mummies~7pm
Here Come the Mummies is an eight-piece funk-rock band of 5000 year-old Egyptian
Mummies with a one-track mind. Their “Terrifying Funk from Beyond the Grave” is sure
to get you into them (and possibly vice versa).
Since their discovery (and without so much as a hot bath) Here Come The Mummies
has opened for P-Funk, Al Green, and Cheap Trick; rocked Super Bowl Village 2012;
become a regular on The Bob and Tom Show; been invited to play Summer Camp
2015, Common Ground 2015, Voodoo Fest 2015, Musikfest, and Summerfest; and
made themselves the darlings of sell-out crowds over wide swaths of North America.
Maybe that’s why the ladies (and some dudes) can’t stop losing their minds over these
mayhem-inducing mavens of mirth.
Some say they were cursed after deflowering a great Pharaoh’s daughter. Others claim
they are reincarnated Grammy-Winning studio musicians. Regardless, HCTM’s
mysterious personas, cunning song-craft, and unrelenting live show will bend your
brain, and melt your face. Get ready, for Here Come The Mummies.
