WCBN Presents Upcoming Shows at Ann Arbor Distilling Company

Following a great show by Danny Kroha last Saturday are a couple groups at the Ann Arbor Distilling Company you can't afford to miss!

APRIL 1, 2017 • 7:00 PM

T-Bone Paxton and the RJ Spangler Trio

Lifelong buddies RJ Spangler & Tbone Paxton started working together in 1980 with the dynamic Sun Messengers band. Since that time, Tbone has also become quite an engaging vocalist. The Great American Songbook: Johnny Mercer, Hoagy Carmichael, Duke Ellington & the Harlem Jive of Fats Waller as well as the proto jump/swing of Louis Jordan is part of each performance. Add some gut-bucket trombone & RJ’s experience with blues, swing and world jazz on drums and you have an idea what to expect at their shows.

APRIL 8, 2017 • 7:00 PM

Michael Hurtt and His Haunted Hearts

The Hearts’ patented Rock-A-Bayou Hillbilly style can be likened to a Southern gothic collision of the rural and the urban; the electrified string band sounds of Luke Thompson, Hunter Watts and Hollis Albin blending with a Cajun back beat.
