Lighting Matches is a folk-rock band based in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Fronted by duo Rachel White and Matt Plessner, they are well-known for their skilled songwriting and combustive harmonies, which add a very engaging and captivating element to their music. Both released solo albums in 2016 (Rachel?s debut EP ?Destination Sunday? and Matt?s 5th album ?Forest Blue?) and both were nominated for multiple 2017 Jammie Awards. Featuring drummer Eric Locke and bass/keyboardist Adam Parada (of Melophobix), they plan to release an album as Lighting Matches in 2018!
The JetBeats are a vintage Rock & Roll combo from Grand Rapids.
The group's mission is to bring back the excitement from the high energy live shows of the early 60's Beat Music era, as well as British Invasion classics and a healthy dose of American rockabilly and rhythm & blues.
Spanning a period from 1957 to 1965, The JetBeats will belt out high octane, early Rock & Roll hits from The Beatles, The Kinks, The Who, The Rolling Stones, The Searchers, The Swinging Blue Jeans, Gerry & The Pacemakers, Eddie Cochran, Little Richard, Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins, Larry Williams, and a host of other legendary performers from the most exciting period in rock history.
The JetBeats also perform their own raucous compositions - a sound that pays homage to that big beat sound. See what the excitement is all about. Feel THE BEAT!
