FREE ALL AGES SHOW*
Watermark Live and Red House Concert Series are joining forces to present a live show not to be missed!
What do you get when you combine two high energy bands with passionate, music loving promoters?
An evening with Roosevelt Diggs wsg Brother Adams!
For a Grand Rapids-based band reared on ’80s rock ‘n’ roll, The Beatles, Pink Floyd and “Casey Kasem Top 40” pop songs, Roosevelt Diggs seems an unlikely Americana outfit: a high-energy, vintage-sounding quartet that channels the ghosts of mythic figures from U.S. folklore with an upright bass, guitars, mandolin, banjo, melodica and drums. (courtesy of localspins.com).
"The unique combination of acoustic and electric instrumentation brings the idea of folk-rock to a new, almost experimental level in Holland-bred Brother Adams. The raw, Modest Mouse-esque rock ‘n’ roll vocals add even more urgency to the trio’s sound, urging the audience to scream the lyrics right along. That being said, a Brother Adams live performance is one not to be missed: These guys love to pull the audience into the expressive passion they pour out on every stage they step onto. Their newest release, “Blood,” is a fluid expression of stories and emotions, and after you see them live, you’ll be hooked." - www.localspins.com

ABOUT Olivia Mainville & The Aquatic Troupe
An eclectic blend of indie-folk sounds, laden with infectious hooks, foot tapping rhythms, and memorable harmonies. This is the core of midwest Michigan’s emerging artist Olivia Mainville and her debut EP “Full Steam Ahead.”
In July of 2014, the eighteen-year-old’s five song EP, was independently released, featuring performances by noted Michigan artists the Accidentals, Don Julin, Billy Strings, and the Appleseed Collective’s Vince Russo. “Full Steam Ahead’s” tracks vary in style from the driving, gypsy-swing of the title track, to the bluegrass influenced “Thorn of a Rose,” to the atmospheric “Sault Ste. Marie.” Mastered and mixed by Nashville based Quad Studio’s Rob Feaster (Johnny Cash, Bruce Springsteen, George Harrison), “Full Steam Ahead” showcases a dynamic soundscape to be enjoyed by listeners of all ages.
Olivia has spent the majority of the last four months supporting the Accidentals and played in over fifty shows during this span, including sets at Blissfest and Holler Fest and tours of Nashville and the East coast.https://www.facebook.com/TheAquaticTroupe/info/?tab=page_info
