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 http://www.thecookiesband.com to learn more
