Whiskey Charmers
This is one of the "best new bands of 2015" in Detroit, where the Metro Times says of them "it's so rare to find great Americana these days, let alone great roots-based non-garage music in Detroit."

New York Music Daily says Carrie Shepard "has a strong yet soft and utterly enigmatic voice [that's] world-weary beyond her years"; guitarist Lawrence Daversa "plays with edge and bite and a distinctive sense of melody." The Whiskey Charmers are touring in support of their second CD, "The Valley."

Friday, September 15, 2017 -- 7:30 p.m. -- $8.50 general admission $11 reserved tax included
