Graham Parsons & The Go Rounds at the Pavilion – June 27, 2014

Kalamazoo’s favorite suns. High energy twang-rock and jelly-roll. Led by singer/songwriter Graham Parsons, The Go Rounds are a furious live act and progressive recording unit, fueled by the history of its diverse lineup and a collaborative spirit injected into everything from songwriting to arranging.

Equally inspired by their record collections as the beauty of the Great Lakes State, the band explores soul music, baroque folk, art rock, country and classic rock n’ roll.

The Cookies at the Pavilion on Court – August 1, 2014

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. Visit to learn more
