Michael Beling's Funky Birthday Bash

Saturday - April, 02 @ 6:00pm

"It's my 36th birthday, and you know what that means—"you'll be closer to 50 than you are to 20?"— well, that, and more! A funky good time. I couldn't celebrate my birthday the last two years, so I've got a lot of pent-up birthday funkiness I want to share with you." ~ Michael Beling
Join Alex Ouellette, Bailey Giles and Michael Beling as they jam their way through some of Michael's groovier tunes— funk, jazz, afrobeat, gospel-inspired music!
Michael Beling- organ, keyboards, pedal bass
Bailey Giles- saxophone
Alex Oullette- drums
