Local Spins Wednesday: The Hill People

June 19 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

SpeakEZ is proud to partner with Local Spins, the premier source in West Michigan for all things related to the regional and national music scene!  Every Wednesday features top-notch musical talent from all across the genre spectrum in a casual, intimate setting. 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 Lounge, North 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 to the north.

This week we are proud to present the SpeakEZ Lounge debut of a band that first made a big splash in Grand Rapids in the early 1980s. The Hill People – fiddler Bob Goodman, banjoist/guitarist Duncan McMillan, guitarist/mandolinist Tom DeVries and upright bassist John Vrieling – are back, playing bluegrass music melded with gypsy jazz, old timey folk, swing, rock, Celtic and world music. Come celebrate the reunion of this classic GR band, with all the stories and humor that go along with it.
