Jammies XVI: A Great Start to 2015!
The WYCE Jammies, presented by Bell's Brewery, is a large, Michigan-style grammys award ceremony and live concert featuring a variety of local musicians at The Intersection Lounge and The Stache. Every year, listeners, musicians, and TV/Radio personalities related to music gather in the venue and celebrate the efforts of every musician involved in the community.
The votes are tallied beforehand by WYCE and include a wide variety of household names and up-and-comers in the scene. With such a strong presence of musicians at this concert you will find a lot of dedicated folks that make up the diverse music scene in Michigan.
I am very excited to be returning to the Jammies with Brad Fritcher + Trois, as we were nominated last year for a variety of categories for our debut release and now we have category nominations for our sophomore release. What is different from last year is that we will be part of the featured performers taking the main stage, as opposed to playing the front lounge. This is very exciting, and I'm looking forward to sharing our music with a wider audience and having a good time.
What is also exciting is that a group that I recently helped record for and that had their album release shows at the end of 2014 will also be taking the main stage! Hannah Rose Graves and The Graves Tones is the live group performing the original blues/soul music crafted by singer Hannah Rose Graves and guitarist Justin Wierenga. The group has already performed with high praise by concert attendees, and it will be awesome to perform even more fresh, original music with these players.
The show will take place on February 13th starting at 5pm at The Intersection, with a more detailed schedule to be posted as the date gets closer.
