Wilbo Enjoys an Late Afternoon of Community as He Spends #SmallBusinessSaturday at Pigeon Hill Brewing Company, Muskegon @PureMichigan
At Pigeon Hill, I saw Derek Dile & Courtney Reynolds and I hoped that meant a Julia & The Greensides Performance was imminent. However, the band is doing
fewer gigs, none until December 12 or so. Or so I heard. The band has polished ten songs for a new album & continues to polish. And Muskegon has repatriated Shredd Spread from Seattle, Shredd holding court now as we speak & drink.

Fire Barn Gallery Grand Haven @PureMichigan Searching for Lakeland Artist Members & Their Artwork, 55 Years of History; Show opens 4/23/2015.
An organized platform for artists to connect with each other can mean
the difference between an individual's decision to pursue art or to
give it up.
The long standing presence of the Lakeland Artists has undoubtedly
helped to shape the creative climate of West Michigan by providing
this platform; it would be impossible to calculate the positive
effects they have had over 5 1/2 decades.
Begun in 1958, the Lakeland Artists first president was Norma Green,
who organized their first juried show in 1959, a tradition that
continues to this day. They have shown at the Tri-Cities Historical
Museum, Muskegon Museum of Art, and countless other venues in the
This show is a tribute to the Lakeland Artists, and is an open call to
anyone who has been a member.
If you own work by a Lakeland Artist that you would like to include
please email email@example.com April 19th.
We also welcome written anecdotes, thoughts or stories anyone may have
regarding their history, which we will hang in the hallway of the
gallery. The public can drop these off at the gallery during viewing
The show opens Thursday April 23rd, 6-8pm, presentation at 7pm.
Complimentary wine will be available.
Gallery will be open Wednesday, Friday and Saturday 12-6pm, through May 20th.

A Young Lady Was Conducting An Imaginary Symphony in the Balcony of the Frauenthal ---> So Let's Send Her to Click Clack Moo !
We were talking up in the balcony after the Beethoven and Blue Jeans
Concert, and we noticed that one of the young ladies in your party was
conducting an imaginary orchestra. So I promised to send you
information on all the programming the West Michigan Symphony has for
children and young people.
We have a double header, one for adults & one for kids. Concert
Saturday night is ten dollars a ticket. I'm unsure if its kid
appropriate, but it does get a guest and you wandering around the
Block, the symphony's office, asking questions. Marcy Richardson
should be a good time & you can't beat the price. Plus, well, it's
going to be a little spicy.
The Children's Choir is singing on Sunday, twice. Children in your
group will probably know a number of the children in the choir. That
should be a good experience.
I'm a bit of a fail in that the second concert has passed in the
series of music composed for young kids. Worry little as the final
concert goes off in April. Scott Speck the conductor attends, so it's
highly likely he'll talk to that young lady about his baton, which of
course is a magic wand for music.
There you go. All connected. Captain
