Who Hit John? – Sounds of Sleeping Bear Concert – August 14, 2011
Performing, jamming, and busking since 2006, Who Hit John? has tenaciously evolved from their beginnings as an old-time string band playing on the street corner for tips. Incorporating Gypsy Jazz, Swing and European flavors into an already eclectic collage of barnstorming old-time originals and traditionals, they blend old-world music with a vibrant breath of excellent and soul. Expect fanciful fiddle and trumpet melodies over a thick core of acoustic rhythm. Visit Who Hit John? on their website at www.whohitjohn.com. Call 231.334.5000 to order tickets.
