There will also be food vendors, live music, and opportunities to meet the breweries' representatives and learn about craft beer and wine.
Featuring Slim Gypsy Baggage from 6pm to 9 pm (like them on Facebook), homegrown blends of Soulful, Spirited, Roots Rock with Swinging HipHop Beats and a Vibrant Sound ...a little bit of this and a lot of that!! From the SW coast of MI, SGB originally came to be when performing musicians, Morgan Ingle(vocal/rhythm guitar) and Matt Smith(vocal/bass) were introduced to Cam Mammina(lead guitar). The musical combination was a magical blend that had to be explored. In time, came the addition of Scott Christie(drums), who provides the foundational beats for SGB. Friendships are what have rooted this band together and brought them together in the first place as well as the common interest in music. Though the individuals that make up this outfit are randomly different and come from varied backgrounds in extensive musical studies, it is the culmination of the group as a whole that creates their creative and vibrant sound.
