The Cookies at the Pavilion on Court

August 1, 2014

6:00 PM to 9:00 PM

DOWNTOWN GAYLORD FRIDAY NIGHT CONCERT SERIES PRESENTED BY SIDOCK GROUP, INC. AND YOUR GAYLORD WALMART:

If you haven't heard The Cookies yet, here is the perfect opportunity to dance in the street to their mix of upbeat dance tunes pulled from more than 4 decades of hits!

Comprised of Jakey Thomas, Richie V, Lexi Lou, and Jakey Baby, each of the members is an incredible musician in their own right, and each member also works in one or more other projects as well. But while many of those projects lean towards modern rock/fusion sounds, or singer/songwriter solo styles, The Cookies are pure, toe-tapping, hip swinging dance-pop gold. At one of their already-legendary live shows, you'll hear hits from the 60's Motown era, 70's gems like "Funky Town," 80's classics like Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" or the B-52's "Love Shack," and even a few modern hits like MGMT's "Electric Feel" or Bruno Mars "Treasure" thrown in to round things out. Each of these songs are played with obvious love and devotion to the original material, but with the fresh energy that only a bunch of young folks from Northern MI can add to songs that we all know and love.

Kellerville is both real and imagined. On the edge of Lake Michigan, nestled in the crook of willow trees in Cross Village is a tiny part of town where Lee Dyer and Holly Keller both grew up playing music. After many years of separate creation they formed an original acoustic duo to bring them back to the town that wrought them, and bring a new age to the folks who came before.

With songs of storytelling and personal experience, let Lee and Holly paint you a picture of home with a song.

Welcome to Kellerville.

DOWNTOWN GAYLORD FRIDAY NIGHT CONCERT SERIES PRESENTED BY SIDOCK GROUP, INC. AND YOUR GAYLORD WALMART:

“Very seldom do I find a song that is powerful enough to force me to slow down, take a breath and drift into a state of sincere self-reflection. For me, E Minor's Beautiful Dungeon shot a haunting message of conviction strait into my soul." -NM3 Magazine

Originally from Mackinaw City/Cheboygan areas in Michigan, E Minor is now based in Traverse City, MI. Elizabeth Minor has been a singer/songwriter practically from birth. She started out playing with her father and sisters as a child, and by 11 years old she grew into her own in music.

E Minor has played all over Northern and some lower parts of Michigan. As well as Southern Oregon and Ireland. Catch her playing as a duo, with Bass player Caul Bluhm who is famous for the "Cauldron" upright bass, handcrafted out of an oil drum. And occasionally with a classic array of instruments including guitar, drums and trumpet. Either way your in for a show full of originality and style!
