"An 18-hour jam session..." brought together by four guys, and a musical, unforgettable night.
G-Snacks, made up of Erik Griffin on Guitar, Kellen Wressell on Bass, Synth and Vocals, Justin Perry on Drums and Jimmy Olson on Keyboard, Synth and Lead Vocals, will play at Little Bohemia, for a Pre-New Year's Eve party, 9:30-12:30 pm.
All natives of Traverse City, these fellas have spent most of their time elsewhere, traveling back and forth from Traverse City, always coming back to 'the nest.'
With four guys, four personalities, and four styles, it's hard putting just one label on what exactly it is G-Snacks stands for and what they're made of. Their genre is something pretty unique and hard to describe, since they are all songwriters and tend to go all over the place with different styles.
G-Snacks can be heard rocking out to electronic funk metal, heavy funk and live electronic. "We like to mesh and mix non-conventional genres together," says drummer Justin Perry, "we want our shows to be a party, full of dancing and people free to do whatever the want."
Sounds like a rave to me - a 'lively party or gathering involving dancing and drinking,' in a wild, enthusiastic and good way. At live shows, like the one Saturday at Little Bohemia, you'll hear a lot of heavy funk beats and slap bass, squealin' synthesizers, dance/trance grooves, and bone-chillings guitar riffs accompanied by G-Snack's front-man, Morrison.
Don't be timid to join the party at Little Bohemia's this Saturday. Guaranteed a good time, filled with dancing, rock n' roll, moments to breathe and a good time. "There's nothing too unique or outlandish for us to try," Perry says, "we're looking forward to rocking out with Traverse City."
Little Bohemia, Traverse City's second oldest tavern, is located at 540 W. Front Street. With traditional American style food, with a dash of Italian and Seafood, Little Bo's is open at 11:00 am Tuesday - Saturday. Featuring live music Tuesday, Friday and Saturday, Little Bo's is a comfortable, at-home kind of place, to enjoy friends and strangers alike.
Originally built as a hot dog stand in 1932, Little Bohemia's was nothing but an annual ritual of making sauerkraut, outside with a drive-up window and a Speak Easy in the basement. The history of Little Bo's says that one evening, while closing up, the owner was paid a visit by a couple of Al Capone's men. They held him at gunpoint, warning him he'd better get his liquor from Capone or else! The men were chased off by an employee who was able to sneak out to his truck and get his shotgun; he surprised them; fortunately they never returned.
Located in the heart of "Little Bohemia" as the area was known and being of Bohemian descent, the original owner named his business in honor of the Bohemian community that had settled on the west end of Traverse City. Little Bohemia immediately became the gathering place on Saturday nights. At the end of the prohibition, soon expanded to include a tavern and its popularity made it into a Traverse City landmark, now an icon and a premier destination in the city's West End District.
Blessed with fame in its own right, Little Bohemia's tavern stood the test of time, and is known as a "home away from home," the second oldest tavern in Traverse City.
Come join Little Bohemia and G-Snacks this Saturday, December 28, 2013 for a Pre-New Year's Eve celebration. Come enjoy live music, food and good company soaked in some history from 9:30-12:30 am, free of cover!
