Swift Brothers

Based out of Lansing, Michigan, Dan and Mark have a long musical history together. With over a decade of musical collaboration together, they formed The Swift Brothers in 2013 in an effort to create something different.  As long time friends, the duo felt like brothers. It was only natural that the new name should reflect that.  Not long after, their first single “Ordinary” was written.  Over the last few years, their sound has evolved and hesitantly hangs on to the “acoustic” label.  The Swift Brothers have created a unique and full sound that rivals many full sized bands. The Swift Brothers have appeared on local radio and podcasts and have been featured on the cover of Around the Sound magazine. They continue to gain attention and are definitely an act not to miss.

Thrift Shop Three

The Thrift Shop Three are an "old school" acoustic trio that brings forward elements of past great performers, and mixes them into an extensive contemporary song list. From George Gershwin to George Jones to George Harrison, the boys have purloined the spirit of Americana and channeled it through their unique mix of banjo, guitar and bass, and through tight, 3-part vocal harmonies. Covering everything from Carmichael to Cobain, they place a spin or twist that is guaranteed to raise a smile on the mug of even the most jaded sybarite.

Painted White

A Monday open mic night at a favorite local spot brought Holly Frances and Garret Schmittling together in April of 2009. The meeting turned into what would soon become a dynamic musical relationship and the duo have been booking shows throughout Metro-Detroit ever since. Their steadily growing fan base and industry “family” have helped push Painted White and continue to aid their sound and repertoire development.

Holly’s soulful vocals front the group while fans and first-timers alike watch Garret as he loops and creates each tune, molding them into an “acoustic” category all their own. Painted White’s cover choices include an eclectic growing selection that appeals to every age group and venue.

noon - 4 p.m.


“The B2wins are a stretch to understand without experiencing them LIVE. The violinist, Walter Caldas, sounds like Lindsey Sterling had a music baby with Carlos Santana. His vocals are as unique as a folk singer, yet strong like a pop star. His twin, Wagner Caldas, drives the group’s energy with an electric ukulele (cavaquinho) while hyping the crowds and the band alike. The bassist, Riley Scheetz, is a strong presence on stage and in speaker, comparable to Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers with infectious grooves like Michael Jackson. RaQwon Reed sits on the throne, feeding the band with a tight  Gospel-Pop pocket and ramps the music higher with well placed fills.”
