"Mark Lavengood embodies the enthusiasm needed to take music and listener to new places."
Anyone that has witnessed Lavengood perform will attest to these three key attributes: his big heart, wild energy on stage, and the aptitude on the many instruments that he plays. Having released 3 LPs and a 7 inch vinyl under his own name in conjunction with 3 LPs, and more with International touring act, Lindsay Lou (formerly, & the Flatbellys), Mark Lavengood is no stranger to the hustle of the music industry.

Special Guest

Patty PerShayla

Patty’s solo set this evening will feature a vintage-inspired electric guitar set, exploring blues and gloomy arrangements of classic rock songs. Her debut EP, Oracle Bones, won Best Rock/Pop album at the 21st Annual WYCE Jammie Awards and she is back in the studio to record a full-length blues-rock record with her full band, Patty PerShayla & The Mayhaps. Whether she's onstage with the trio, wielding a bass as her weapon of choice, or tucked in the corner of one of her favorite Michigan breweries, Patty PerShayla brings to the stage a strutting, stomping, crooning good time that you won't be able to ignore.
