Three full days of Funk, fun & Freedom!

Underleaf

Funk, Folk, & Rock

 A bit Folked up, a little Funked up, with a hint of Indie and a touch of the Blues, Underleaf is an exhilarating, genre-defying, harmony-laden Rock band from the shady knolls of Emmet County, Michigan. Cultivated with care underneath the canopy of trees that forest Northwest Michigan, and under the Milky Way herself, Underleaf beckons the listener like a cool, shady tree on the hottest of days and a steady, crackling bonfire on the chilliest of nights. 

Dede & The Dreamers

I value all the people that want to look closely at our lives and our future and change it. To propel us forward with our hearts and minds. 

It is a strange time to be alive, maybe every ancestor who has lived through any historical changes feels this same way. Maybe change just feels hard and strange and uncomfortable. I don’t know, but one thing I’m clear on is that it is the role and job of the artist to give voice to it all. We, out of any occupation, are allowed, in fact encouraged, to look at it, question it, and explore it. What is the it? It’s the disfunction, the imbalance, the ugliness, the shadow, and the beauty. It is our job to dive deeply into these subjects and give witness, and ultimately, if we do our job right, come back with the silver lining of hope. Come back with the spark that lights the fire in other’s souls. That spark that reminds us of the things we used to know and our values as children. The things that disarm us. At least, this is why I make music.

Funky Uncle

Funky Uncle is a band that is all about pushing the boundaries of music and bringing new sounds to the table. With their innovative approach to jazz, they have created a sound that incorporates new TC funk and fusion elements that approach jazz ‘as a verb.’ Through their energetic and dynamic performances, Funky Uncle brings a fresh and exciting sound to the jazz scene. Their music is characterized by the blending of different styles and genres, resulting in a unique sound that is both familiar and fresh. With their infectious rhythms and soulful melodies, Funky Uncle is sure to get audiences moving and grooving to their new TC funk and fusion sounds.

The Claudettes

Roots

Grounded in roots music yet pushing the boundaries of indie pop and rock, the Claudettes are writing the most riveting chapter of their story right now. Pianist/songwriter Johnny Iguana formed the Claudettes with drummer Michael Caskey, dazzling with the barrelhouse bravura of their 2013 debut Infernal Piano Plot…HATCHED! Another Yellow Dog Records release followed in 2015 featuring Nigerian-American singer Yana: No Hotel. Vocalist Berit Ulseth and bassist/guitarist/vocalist Zach Verdoorn joined the band for Pull Closer to Me: Live in the Piano Room (2017) and Dance Scandal at the Gymnasium (2018, helmed by Grammy-winning Black Keys producer Mark Neill).

Jesse Ray and the Carolina Catfish

Jesse was 12 when he picked up guitar after  his “Gumpy” bought his first 6 string. Jesse then began playing open mic nights with his mama at his side to gain him entry into the bars.

In 2013 Jesse Ray formed Jesse Ray and The Carolina Catfish a high energy rock n roll, blues and rockabilly 2 piece band.

Always looking for new and creative musical opportunities Jesse Ray now brings The Reverend Jesse Ray, an Americana Rock N’ Roots experience like no other. 

Djangophonique

Djangophonique is an award winning project that delivers the infectious joy, and expressive
freedom that is at the heart of Django Reinhardt’s jazz manouche. With respect for the tradition
and a fearless creativity that bends the conventions of the style, Djangophonique is keeping the
Hot Club revival alive and well. The result is a sound that’s unmistakable to fans of the music,
and alluring to the uninitiated—a sound that can bring the lively energy of a Parisian dance hall
to the quietest listening room or captivate a buzzing festival audience with the aching nostalgia
of a shimmering ballad.

DJ Franck

Multigenerational and multi-genre-ational
DJ Franck uplifts in the mix and sychronizes with the room on a soulful level to celebrate a positive vibration collectively using an eclectic selection of records known, beats unknown, and the rhythms in-between.

DJ Clark After Dark

DJ Clark After Dark merges genres and blends unique sounds to produce the best mixes for the correct environments. Multi-genre vinyl mixes, with elements of original music production, synth, and scratch turntablism. Take a journey through sound, time, and space with one of Northern Michigan’s underground artists.

Mr. Jake

Mr. Jake grew up right here in Harbor Springs. Jake has developed a unique sound with just his guitar and voice. We think it comes from a blend of the spring water, the Carolina coast, late nights at Blissfest, public radio, and those early coming-of-age after-school jams with Something Different in the Homemade Jam. He puts a groove to any tune you throw at him and hits those coveted high lonesome notes with ease.

Northwoods Improvisers Quintet

Northwoods formed in 1976 and have been performing since. The band has gone through various changes through the years with the current sextet being solidified in 2020. Drummer Nick Ashton and Mike Johnston have been in the band together since 1986. The band has released 19 Cds / LPs through the years.

The Smokin Dobroleles

Forged in friendship and family, the West Michigan-based band, The Smokin’ Dobroleles, has the uncanny ability to feed off each other and their audience to create the perfect mix of medicine to cure what ails you. The Smokin melodic tremolo and solid chops of Mike Renna’s resonator ukulele and songwriting skills blend perfectly with Abe Kurzer’s soulful dobro and their vocal harmonies create a singular sound that will have your whole body swaying. Rounding out this eclectic crew and sure to have you smiling, we have Brandon Tabor holding down the low end on upright bass and the well seasoned, fearless timekeeper, John Ellsworth, on all things drums and percussion.
