Truetones // March 11

The natural energy of The Truetones trio is evident from the first song to the last. Guitarist Tim Harding and bassist Bob Wild have played music together for over 30 years, and regardless of what they have played in the past, they always come back to blues.

Jabo Bihlman Band // March 12

Emmy award-winning songwriter and producer, Jabo Bihlman, is the lead singer and guitarist for the popular rock band The Bihlman Bros. He also is the lead guitarist for Grinder Blues with his brother Scot and legendary King’s X frontman Dug Pinnick.

Project 6 // March 17

Featuring the musical stylings of Dave Weber, Jeff Hudson and Adam Crawford, Project 6 is a wonderful mix of classic rock and acoustic music. Bring your dancing shoes and sing along to this exciting show.

Jon Archambault Band // March 19

One of Northern Michigan’s best blues groups, the Jon Archambault Band brings the ultimate soul, funk and rock-infused blues performance. They say, “If it feels good, and if it moves people, we play it.”

The Pistil Whips // March 25

A favorite at Encore 201, The Pistil Whips combine funk, blues and jazz to make a unique sound. Eric Dane Jaqua plays the farmer foot drums along with guitar and vocals, while William LaTournuea plays saxophone, clarinet, keys and the beatboxing flute. The Pistil Whips perform “unorthodox funky music for unorthodox funky people.”
