Great Lakes Conway's Irish Ale
A-pours a nice reddish amber color with an off white head with decent retention
Scores a 91 = outstanding
With a dark beer , Black Butte defined Deschutes as a radical player. A slight hop bitterness up front enhances the distinctive chocolate and roasted finish. It's prized for its creamy mouthfeel and intense complex flavors.
Malt: Pale, Carapils, Chocolate, Crystal, Wheat
Uinta Hop Notch IPA
Poured a finger and half of head on a hazy, dark straw colored body.
Brooklyn “Pennant” Ale
Appearance: Poured into a pint glass. The color is pale copper and a finger of dense, buttery, off-white head dissipated slowly and a little unevenly.
Griffin Original Cider
The sweet, winelike, mango-infused apple cider pairs well with pork or poul try, cheese, many salads and desserts. Griffin Original is a full-bodied, medium-sweetness, English-style cider with nicely balanced apple flavor.
Brooklyn Pumpkin Ale
Appearance: Pours a deep copper amber orange with a moderate amount of rising bubbles. About two fingers of off white head that slowly fade into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing.
Southern Tier 2x Milk Stout
Pours a completely opaque black with a short beige head that dissipates quickly, leaving fine rings of lace on the glass.
Black box Cucumber Belgian White Wheat
One of the most unusual beers produced in Ohio back. Black Box Brewing Co. in Westlake hasl release the first new batch of Cucumber Belgian White Wheat in three
Leinenkugel Orange Shandy
Leinenkugel's Orange Shandy has a thick, creamy, white head, an opaque, milky, yellow-gold appearance, and some lacing left behind. The aroma is of a strong orange smell, with citrus acidity, orange peel, and white bread. Taste is of orange, a peppery zest, citric acid, a touch of honey, white wheat bread, white bread crust, sugar, and a slightest bitterness. Mouthfeel is heavy and a bit gritty, and Leinenkugel's Orange Shandy finishes semi-dry, sweet, refreshing, and very easy going. Overall, for a flavored concoction, it's alright. !

less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more
medicine, but less wellness.

reduced our values.
We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate
too often. We've
learned how to make a living, but not a life.
We've added years
to life not life to years.
We've been all the
way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor.
We conquered outer space but not inner space.

"Michigan's Celtic Jamgrass Champions"
The band consists of Brant Losinski on vocals and guitar, Matt Pernar on drums, Tim Sheldon on banjo, David Cleaves on mandolin and Brennan Andes on bass. Many may know Brennan from The Macpodz.
Together, they make a danceable combination of Celtic bluegrass jam music with a little reggae, Americana and blues thrown
Michigan band with roots in Flint, Kalamazoo and Ann Arbor, sat in their 38-foot bus outside Churchill's in downtown Flint, sipping on 16-ounce bottles of Guinness and trying to explain their sound.
“We're really unique because of the roots stuff,” guitarist and lead singer Brant Losinski said. “We're like a bluegrass band; we go to Alpena, we play a lot of blues; we go down to the urban areas, we do more hip hop-oriented shows. So we're in like five or six genres, but one of them is the kind of old school jam band scene, which I now call the roots and jam band scene.”
The band was getting ready to play for what it dubbed the “Bob Marley Birthday Bash,” which is part of its “Marley to Barley” tour making its way through the Traverse City Winter Microbrew Festival Feb. 10-11.
So where does Bob Marley fit into their sound? Well, they count reggae in their cross-genre style as well. And traditional Celtic music.
“Roots music” is as close to a name the band members can give to what they play, a term they attribute to any style that has traditional beginnings. But that can mean a lot of things.
“I might be the world's first bluegrass rapper,” Losinski said, laughing, although he's more often singing than rapping, often harmonizing with banjo player Tim Sheldon, 30, of Kalamazoo.Scott Atkinson | MLive.com
“If you were stolen from an island and taken somewhere and made to work on another island for little to nothing, we like your music,” drummer Matt Pernar, 35, said.
“Factory stuff, too,” Losinski added.
“And then you got the mountains,” Sheldon said.
Losinski contends that while bluegrass and rap, or reggae and traditional Celtic music may seem worlds apart, they're really not. Or at least, they don't have to be. Sometimes, the band will put a reggae spin on an Irish tune, or vice versa.
“Bluegrass and reggae are literally a downbeat apart. They sound different to the ear, but when you put them together, like, they're both in four-four, you cluck the upbeat on both...it seems like really different music, but it's the same music,” he said.
Their original songs often reflect that blend, although according to the venue, they often change their emphasis according to the crowd, sliding back and forth between their influential genres. Recently they played a show with other bands in Ann Arbor called "Folk the Police," where bands like Rootstand took a folk approach to songs by rappers like Snoop Doggy Dogg. But they fit in most easily at what Losinski calls the “brewery scene.”
“In Flint we play a little more aggressively, we play a little more hip hop,” Losinski said.
Playing at Churchill's, Losinski took the microphone toward the end of the opening band's set, freestyling rap-style lyrics to the their traditional reggae beat. While Rootstand set up, Dr. Dre's “California Love” played through the bar's speakers. Then Sheldon tuned his banjo, and the show began.
The band formed in Ann Arbor, when Losinksi was pursuing his undergraduate degree in English (he recently finished his master's degree in the same subject at the University of Michigan-Flint, where he wrote his thesis on traditional music). Like many bands, members came and went before they had the current core group of five members. Now they say they're as a family as much as a band.Scott Atkinson | MLive.com Guitarist and lead singer Brant Losinski sings during a show at Churchill's on February 3.
Even though the members live all over the state, they often meet at a central location to ride together on the band's converted school bus that features a table, benches, curtains and a light bulb screwed into the wall that once had a cereal box for a lampshade.
“During the summer, we're together a lot more and we'll spend a couple of weeks together at a time doing stuff and going to festivals and riding around on the bus,” said Keri Pernar, 27, who is married to Matt Pernar.
Talking to people from the downtown Flint crowd, it's hard to find anyone who hasn't heard of the band, and through going to watch them play, gotten to know them personally.
“We're lucky to have that in Flint, where we can personally know a band,” said Jessie Wolford, 21, of Montrose, standing outside Churchill's. She said she met Rootstand after going to watch them when she was about 17.
“I've gone to shows like Flogging Molly and some big shows and, honestly, I wasn't impressed, because I'm so spoiled by like, Rootstand, by these good bands that are local. I'm not used to going to a show where they play songs that sound like it's off an album. Like, I want to hear a jam. I want to hear something a little more sentimental to the area. I don't want to hear what you've already done. I want to hear what you feel like now,” she said.
Amanda Broadworth, 32, of Flint, said she's been going to Rootstand shows for years. “I listen to everything, and they have a very wide variety. Rootstand specifically, I love it. You can dance to it, it has a good message if you listen to the lyrics, and they bring it, they really do," she said.
While they're doing well on the local scene, Losinski, who also acts as the band's manager -- "both a blessing and a curse," he said -- is hoping to start garnering some national attention.
"We work really hard in Michigan to fill our shows up, but the challenge now is to make the transition to national awareness," Losinsky said. “Part of what's fulfilling about it is that we haven't given up. After 10 years we don't make a lot of money but we get a lot of respect. And that's valuable."
Making that leap to national attention may seem a long way off, but after watching other Michigan bands like the White Stripes and Kid Rock blend different styles and take them to the masses, the next big step may never be more than a few blended, hard-to-define downbeats away.

~ Piano POP Rock~ From Cleveland ~
Coming out of Cleveland Ohio, Vocalist and Pianist Tim Moon has entertained audiences since 2009 with his high-powered vocals and energetic crowd-oriented show. Influenced by Freddy Mercury of Queen and Elton John, Tim utilizes his four-octave range and his showmanship
to command the attention of the room, engaging the audience through charisma and personal interaction. His honest, hook-centric songwriting reaches out to the audience and stays with them, leaving the desire for more.
Tim's music reached its full sound when he was joined by Lauren Gale (Speakeasy Tiger, Brave Song Circle), Tavis Alley (Speakeasy Tiger, Monroe Monroe), Jordan Wiker and Adam Horvath. With the lineup set, Tim has focused on his vision of creating a highly interactive emotional journey, which tells a coming of age story throughout the set. Though his journey has just begun, Tim has already shared the stage with notable artists such as Joe King (The Frey), The Rocket Summer, The Summer Set and many others.
In early 2014, Tim hit the studio to record his self-titled debut with Mike Brown. With the anticipated release, Tim now turns to the road where his heart has always been, on the stage.
“Someone once told me that if you're not doing what you love, you're wasting your time, and I try to live by that. I want to connect to as many people as possible in a positive way and music is the perfect outlet”, says Tim.

“Chris Trapper displayed his talent for making radio-friendly music that treads the line between Top 40 rock and grassroots folk.” Nick A. Zaino III - Boston Phoenix
Slick, rootsy college-rock and acoustic folk-twang! Yea he's that good!mm
began his career as the front man for late-90's alternative rock band THE PUSH STARS (Capitol Records). With four CD releases and several high profile national tours -- including a run with Matchbox Twenty -- The Push Stars served to establish Chris as an authentic talent.
As a modern day singer /songwriter, Chris is most known for his song This Time , the #1 selling song on the Grammy nominated soundtrack for AUGUST RUSH (Robin Williams, Jonathan Rhys Meyers /Warner Bros Pictures).
The new CD (released October 18, 2013), Technicolor , is a collection of 17 songs written and performed by Chris Trapper. This new work was Produced, Recorded, Mixed and Mastered by Brad Young at BKY Music, Boston, USA. Focus tracks include the title track 'Technicolor' and 'Northwest Sun' and 'The Accident'.
Chris Trapper's music can best be described as lyrically driven roots-pop with a knack for telling everyday stories filled with extra-ordinary characters.
" Every record tells a story. For me, much more than gimmicks, my albums are like diary entries, or truthful accounts of where
I'm at in life. I suppose that might be the same for most songwriters, but in the spectrum of the music business, it's still an animal that's nearly extinct ." Chris Trapper
"His humble sense of humility is what makes Trapper's songs so strong... He makes you feel like you are the person he's singing about. The Few & the Far Between is another strong addition to the Chris Trapper/Push Stars catalog." Popdose
The New York Times calls his work “classic pop perfection .”
A prolific songwriter, Chris can boast high profile film placements including There's Something About Mary (Ben Stiller, Cameron Diaz), The Devil Wears Prada (Meryl Streep), Say It Isn't So (Heather Graham) and Gun Shy (Sandra Bullock, Liam Neeson) as well as significant television placements including All My Children, Women's Murder Club, Malcolm In The Middle , a coveted placement in George Clooney's final episode of ER , the theme song for WB Networks dramedy Pepper Dennis and a cameo on-screen appearance with the show's star, Rebecca Romjin.
A respected songwriter of the highest caliber, Chris has written 7 songs with/for Canadian band GREAT BIG SEA, including their #1 single "Sea Of No Cares" from the certified-platinum Sea Of No Cares CD. Great Big Sea covered Trapper's song "Everything Shines” and their version served as the debut single off their certified-gold Road Rage CD album. Chris' songwriting collaborations with Great Big Sea earned him two prestigious SOCAN awards. Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty and Antigone Rising have performed other notable versions of Trapper's songs.
Trapper's live show is a favorite among fans of alt–acoustic music. His on–stage persona is warm and inclusive, his organic understanding of classic pop melody, infectious. Audience members seem to particularly appreciate the lighthearted moments with the ukulele.
“ It's an incredibly rare musician, particularly in the world of popular music, who is able to forge a career based on quiet dignity and steadfast integrity ."
