It’s another Live Music Friday here on Current State, and we’re happy to welcome Jackalope to WKAR’s Studio S. The guys in Jackalope are Charlie Richardson, David Stowe and Mike Lawrence. They played their country, blues, and western Americana music throughout the show.
Mighty Uke Day 5 is Friday through Sunday in Old Town Lansing. It’s promoted as a celebration of the “diminutive yet dynamic” instrument and its ties to Michigan culture. There will be performances by professionals, and opportunities for beginners to try their hand at playing the ukulele.
Joining Current State today in Studio S is DeShaun Snead, Larry Neuhardt, and John Esser of Mighty Medicine. This trio from Lansing plays a range of music from jazz to rock to blues and soul for all audiences.
Today's live music guest is Root Doctor, a Lansing-based band that plays a mix of classic soul, R&B, traditional blues, and some inspired original material. Hear Freddie Cunningham on vocals, Mike Skory on the keyboard, James Williams playing bass, and Bill Malone on guitar.
