 MB Welcomes ThreePeace
Michiganbands.com would like to welcome ThreePeace (sic), a "skunk rock" band from Empire, MI (that's the first knuckle of the pinky finger on your Michigan mitten) whose musical goals are nothing less than achieving world peace by channeling The Divine via the unifying third beat of reggae music.
Having survived a near-fatal car accident, a career-ending back injury and subsequent major spinal surgery, and a divorce - Leftee and Big R decided their lives were spared for a reason. So they hired session drummer Martin Sheehan and purged their souls with their first release, "Empire of The Sun".  Since then, ThreePeace has set out to create some positive vibes in the tradition of their heroes Daniel Lanois, Bob Marley and The Police with "For The Love of The Rastaman" (available at CD Baby & iTunes) and are planning their third release for 2008.  Click "Read More" below for their links.

 5th Annual ''Home For The Holidaze'' Benefits Area Homeless
The holidays are now upon us and it is time once again for the fifth annual showcase "Home for the Holidaze" - a singer-songwriter music showcase and benefit for area homeless shelters.  The event brings together local singer-songwriters and former Detroit musicians who are home for the holiday season. It is a chance for them to perform for a good cause as the proceeds from the event will go towards food donations to area homeless shelters. We also accept pet food donations to be distributed to the local animal shelters, Almost Home (almosthomeanimalrescue.org) and Cinder Fund (cinderfund.org). 
This year we are teaming up with Charity Music (charitymusic.com) a local non-profit organization that provides musical instruments to less fortunate children in the community to help foster their musical interests and talents. We will be accepting donations of used musical instruments to distribute to these kids. Any donated used instruments from school band instruments to guitars can be put to good use.  Click "read more" below for artists and information.

 MB Welcomes Gene Perry
Michiganbands.com would like to welcome acoustic artist Gene Perry to the cover bands/acoustic section of our band links.  Gene is from St. Ignace and gigs in the straits area (Mackinac Island, Petosky, St. Ignace, Mackinaw City, etc..) where he's become "a comfortable old shoe" in several upper-lower venues over the last nine years.

Gene knows over 300 cover songs (mostly in the classic-rock genre) and performs original material on request as well.  In 2003 Gene released "It's Time", an aptly-named solo effort he released in his fortieth year.  You can hear samples at his website, along with samples of cover material he performs on a regular basis.

If you spent any time at the Wiki's Michigan Musicians site over the last couple of years, you'd already know that Gene's interest, involvement, enthusiasm and knowledge about music made for some stimulating threads over there. We certainly hope for and encourage the continuation of that tradition here in at MB.  By the looks of things, he's already made a good start.  - Mitch

 Radiocraft CATCH YOUR DEATH CD Release Party

During my teen years a friend's mother used to tell me stories about hanging out with The Rolling Stones in London night clubs during the early sixties.  She even had a picture of her and Brian Jones sharing a pint at the bar.  To a teenage music freak in the late 1970's, that was almost more my brain could handle. But in the early 60's London club scene it was a typical night. No big deal. They couldn't have known at the time that the drunken misfits on stage would one day be larger-than-life rock icons worthy of royalty status here in America.

In the "information age" we may never put our rock stars on such a high pedestal again, but that doesn't change the fact that a London club band went on to create timeless rock classics that would change our lives. My point? When you go out to see a local band that you really dig, it's like London all over again. Who cares if the rest of the world understands what you already know in your gut? When the music moves you, there's nothing quite like being there, up close and personal.

That's the way I've felt about Radiocraft since the first heard them back in aught-one.  The release party for IN STEREO is one of my most treasured memories of local music.  Pure Magic.  Then "Red" came along; no sophomore slump there, the band hit it even harder the second time around and it's just as fresh today as it was when it came out.

Now you have another opportunity to see local music history in the making. Radiocraft's CATCH YOUR DEATH CD RELEASE PARTY w/Zen, Ray Street Park & Primortal will be taking place at The Token Lounge on November 21st. That's the night before Thanksgiving, which is appropriate I think; It's the perfect opportunity to give thanks for having such great local music available to us.  - Mitch
