Cadillac’s Coyote Crossing Resort has been hosting concerts all summer long at its state-of-the-art outdoor music venue. Only four remain, so get your tickets and view the upcoming lineup below.

Michigan Rattlers // August 7

Lifelong friends and deep-north natives, Michigan Rattlers play heavy-hearted folk-rock with an aching dose of Midwestern nice. Graham Young, Adam Reed, and Christian Wilder began writing music and performing together in their Northern Michigan high school.

Drew Hale Band with Sam Morrow // August 21

Opening with Sam Morrow!

SAM MORROW – Two years before releasing Gettin’ By on Gettin’ Down — the most guitar-driven, groove-heavy album of Sam Morrow’s catalog, with songs that roll just as hard as they rock — Morrow hit the highway in support of his third record, Concrete & Mud. Despite the 28-year-old being a road warrior for years, this time things felt different.

DREW HALE – Throughout Michigan, the name Drew Hale is synonymous with powerful vocals, compelling lyrics and haunting melodies. In 2016, Drew won the national Country Showdown competition held at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, earning him the title Best New Act in Country Music, as well as the $100,000 cash prize.

Matt Sayles // August 28

Matthew R. Sayles is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and founder of Philville Records, an independent label he formed in 2000 in Marquette, Michigan. An accomplished, internationally traveled musician, Sayles’s live performances evoke a modern interpretation of the coffee house shows of the 1950s and 60s, while still keeping one foot grounded in the beer halls, honky-tonks, and night clubs of the recent past and present.

The Insiders // September 4

The Insiders present the premier Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers experience. With 6 veteran musicians and decades of combined stage and touring experience, The Insiders are genuinely running down the dream.

Q & A with Coyote Crossing Resort

In 2019, you created a state-of-the-art outdoor music venue. For people who haven’t visited yet, tell us about it.

Our venue is outside next to our restaurant with an outdoor service bar and the stage is a protected 24×16’ rustic style with state-of-the-art equipment. Seating in our “corral” is predominantly picnic tables, with premier seating on raised decks, which get table service. The tables in the grass are self-serve for food and drinks. We also allow guests to bring their own chairs. Call in advance to reserve our deck tables.

Tell us a little bit about the mix of artists who will be performing. 

We have a wide range of musical talent playing this summer ranging from folk to bluegrass, Americana to outlaw country, rock ‘n roll as well as funk!

Events happen rain or shine—is seating covered or should people bring an umbrella just in case? 

Some seating has a sun shade, but not covered for rain, so an umbrella is a good idea just in case. The musicians are protected.

What are your hopes for this space, and how do you see it benefiting the Cadillac area?

We’re hoping to become the premier intimate outdoor venue in Northern Michigan, bringing in world-class acts. We especially appreciate our Cadillac area business sponsors and their vision in helping us attain this goal. And special thanks to Emington Schultz Farm Bureau Agency in being our platinum stage sponsor.
