Tucked inside the River Raisin Distillery west on Main Street, a stone's throw from downtown Manchester is Manchester Underground, a hidden gem of a music venue. The "Underground" hosts monthly live music, featuring some of the best music around. We are so excited to have landed a show there -- and are ready play our hearts out. We'll be doing songs from Bona Fide for sure -- along with cuts from some of my other albums and maybe a cover or two. This intimate room holds under 100 people and features a bar at the back of the room. The perfect setting for our music! Tickets will go on sale in March.
