Billy Brandt & the Sugarees / John Holk & the Sequins / West 7 Mile Renegades
Fri, Dec 30, 2016 @ 8:00 pm to 2:00am
Billy Brandt & the Sugarees: Folk, Rock, Roots, Country, Celtic, Americana, Celticana… Music that you can sing with three or four chords. Open ended performances with Jam’s on the ends of several songs…songs I have written over the last twenty thirty years…
John Holk & the Sequins were formed to be the world’s first psychedelic honky tonk band. Drawing equal inspiration from Hank Williams, Big Star and The Byrds, the Sequins helped galvanize a burgeoning Detroit Honky Tonk Scene as hosts of the legendary “Honky Tonk Tuesday” series at Club Bart in Ferndale ca. 2008-2011. Their self-released 2010 record “If You See Her” (Hole-Key) was described as “The twang-pop record of 2010” by absolutepowerpop.com, and was nominated by the Detroit Music Awards for Best Country Album. Boasting some of the area’s finest working musicians, John Holk & The Sequins are currently working on their second record and playing shows all over Michigan and beyond. The band’s stripped-down alter-ego, John Holk & the Kinfolk, play a folky blend of bluegrass, murder ballads and blood harmony favorites.
West 7 Mile Renegades includes members of Lac La Belle, the Miracle Men, and more.
