Upcoming Heftones Shows

Thursday, September 6th, 2007

heftoneskalamazoovalleymuseumfretboardfestival12.jpgFor those who are new to ColorJoy, Brian (hubby) and I perform as The Fabulous Heftones. We sing the popular music of the 1920’s. (Click band name link for free downloadable music.) We love it.

Sometimes we play far away at Ukulele Festivals (New York, Indianapolis, Chicago). Sometimes we are delighted to perform at festivals that do not focus on the Ukulele (Coopers Glen in Kalamazoo; Evart, Michigan Dulcimer Fun Fest)… and often we play at our home venue, Altu’s Ethiopian Cuisine in East Lansing. If we are lucky, we get to play private events and weddings between the public performances.

We have had a few weeks of slow times for the music. This is always a good change, and we get to learn new songs during those slower times.

Now we head into busier times again. This weekend we will go to the Wheatland Music Festival in Remus, Michigan (very near where I went to college) as participants rather than performers. The next weekend we will be performing for the Earthwork Music Harvest Gathering. This is a relatively new and smaller festival, very rustic, in Lake City, Michigan. Wonderful people, great musicians, great organic food.

We will be playing on Saturday, September 15, at 2pm. There are two stages at this festival, and we will be in the barn, a nice intimate space (with the benefit of good protection if it rains). Just some of the musicians at the festival who we know/hang out with, will be playing there, are:

Jen Sygit & Spare Change

Steppin’ in it

Rachael Davis and Dominic

Laura Bates and Brandon Foote

Madcat & Kane

Breathe Owl Breathe

Captain Midnite

Sam Corbin

Robin Lee Barry (I’ve known her since at least 1973, believe it or not)

This is going to be one heck of a music gathering. I dare say there will be some jamming into the wee hours at this event.

For those staying more local to Lansing, we also have several events coming up:

Foods For Living (healthy food store)
September 21 & Sept 28 (both Fridays)
4:00pm to 6:00pm

Altu’s Ethiopian Cuisine
September 22 & December 8 (Saturdays)
6:30pm to 8:30pm (Dinner Hour)

RicStar Music Camp Benefit
VanAtta’s Greenhouse
September 30 (Sunday)
2:30pm (other acts before and after, including Jen Sygit just before us)
