Grand Traverse Mall Welcomes Bagger Daves

Did you know there was yet another new restaurant in town?  Neither did I until I passed the Grand Traverse Mall and saw this new face proudly standing next to the main entrance.
For those who are not familiar with Bagger Dave's Burger Tavern, I highly recommend a visit.  My first experience was in Grand Rapids where I had one of the most mouth-watering burgers ever.  Swing in, check out the menu, the bar, the friendly staff (above all) and enjoy the element of surprise as you engulf a delicious burger from Bagger Dave's.  Keep in mind they have other good stuff too.

"It all begins with the freshest-of-fresh ingredients and imaginative flavor combinations custom crafted for."

Kastanza is Making Big Waves in Grand Rapids

How do you blend the sounds of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stevie Ray Vaughn and The Darkness, then add some Soul?  Well you ask Ben, Andy & Kevin aka Kastanza to whip something out.  I first saw these monsters of innovation at Billy's Lounge in Grand Rapids, MI.  Amazed by not only the eclectic sounds but the incredible talents that spewed from their instruments.  These cats make it look easy as they exploit their passion for their favorites songs as well as their own original songs performed on stage.
Watch out for these guys, because you WILL be hearing more from them in the days to come. ****1/2

Sault Ste. Marie, Get Ready For Paul Krawl and the KingSnakes

Wait until you witness how they, on the fly, lovingly change one of these classic song into a Reggae Back Beat raising the crowd's frenzy up a notch, or two.  Pretty cool to be there, on the dance floor and see everyone get into a One Love Reggae Groove without even knowing it.  You will NOT go wrong with:

Paul Krawl and the Kingsnakes
  • They were Johnny Winter's band @ The Monterey Pop Festival
  • Back-up band for "The Pointer Sisters
  • Was THE BAND in the movie "Return of Bruno" starring Bruce Willis

“If Paul Krawl the KingSnakes optimize Chicago, then give us more! This band shows how it's done...a groove, a beat, and a sound that makes the audience stand up and pay attention...”

With over 300 songs in the repertoire there is basically NO SONG they can't perform.
- - Matchbox 20, Maroon 5: They have the current sound nailed
- - ZZ Top, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eric Clapton they have that R&B, Roadhouse sound nailed
- - Beatles, Animals, Rod Stewart, Rolling Stones they have THAT ERA nailed
