Combine 1 cup Metallica, 2 tbsp of 3 Doors Down and a pinch of Foo Fighters, bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes and you have yourself a fresh Voodoo Lighthouse.
A rock band with roots in Ann Arbor, Voodoo Lighthouse pulls influences from both modern and classical rock bands alike. With their catchy vocals, engaging lyrics and an undeniably vigorous beat, Voodoo Lighthouse combines the elements to create a gritty sound and a mature and confident attitude.
In early 1999, Voodoo Lighthouse founders Luke Swanson, on vocals, Jordan Jones, on drums, and Rob Hartwell, on bass, began by performing cover songs at local Ann Arbor bars and clubs while constructing a unique sound to call their own. Later on the band would add Chris Cote on lead guitar to complete the band.
Recently the band hit the studio and completed a self-titled album with local Grammy Award winning and three time Gold Record producer Mike Lutz. The band has spent the past six years doing some heavy touring and playing shows all over Southeast Michigan and the Mid-West. In the past, Voodoo Lighthouse has opened for Taproot, Andrew W.K., Pop Evil, Days of the New, Smile Empty Soul, Ashes of Soma, and other nationally known bands.
Catch them this weekend performing at the Screamin' Eagle bar with Nightwatcher. The show starts at 8:00 p.m.
Venue Location: 517 West Cross Avenue, Ypsilanti, MI 48197
