Whether it’s a well-known favorite regional act or an exciting new emerging artist it’s guaranteed to be an amazing experience and there is never a cover charge! Local Spins Wednesdays are presented by Local Spins, SpeakEZ LoungeNorth Coast Guitar Company and WYCE, with Michigan beer specials on tap and free parking in the small city lot to the south on Monroe Avenue NW (kitty-corner from SpeakEZ) or in the Sixth Street Park lot 1/2 block to the north.

When Local Spins considers the talent of young, up-and-coming rock bands in the Grand Rapids area, Pretoria – band and The Ryne Experience immediately come to mind.

Rob Gullett, Ben DeWitt, Josh Bilisko and Matt Burdick are Pretoria, a smart and energetic bunch that falls somewhere between alt-rock and synth-pop with an indie-rock style that “evokes artists like And The Kids, Beach Fossils and Wallows.”

Lowell’s Ryne Clarke leads the collaborative solo rock project (consisting of Clarke and friends) called The Ryne Experience that released its full-length debut project, “Hokey,” in December 2018. Check it out here: https://theryneexperience.bandcamp.com/album/hokey
