southshore concert band
June 15, 2019
Performance canceled due to weather!
It wouldn’t be Flag Day without this impressive band that somehow manages to crowd 60 plus musicians into our gazebo. In 1992, their conductor, Dale Reuss founded the Southshore Concert Band for the purpose of providing a musical outlet for area adult musicians who wished to continue performing in a concert band environment. The Band performs in residence at Lake Michigan College and has become a significant musical organization in Southwest Michigan. An acknowledged premier regional band, they never fail to please. This is going to be another great start to our year of concerts in Dewey Cannon Park.

The Blue Water Ramblers sing extraordinary folk music - the folk songs of Michigan, America and YOUR life. Their repertoire comes right out of our Michigan life experiences and the history of the Great Lakes region. It includes lake shanties, lumberman ballads, union rallying cries, farmers' paeans, Michigan humor, '60s civil rights and protest music, love songs, gospel music and children's ditties. The combination delights and entertains audiences of all ages. "I think my hero, Woody Guthrie, would approve," opined Banjo-Jim. "We're singing the people's songs about the people's lives and they can join right in and sing along."

He has been compared to early Springsteen/Steve Earle/Woodie Gutherie. His performances are entertaining, engaging and audience-inclusive and he has a unique style to his guitar playing…taking a properly strung right handed guitar and flipping it left handed so the strings are in reverse order.
