Thank you!

We want to give a huge thank you to Frederik Meijer Gardens, Ralston Bowles, Ted Bufkin, and The Red Sea Pedestrians for having us out last night for the Tuesday Evening Music Club! We were so excited to play and were completely blown away by the 1,500 member audience that came to hear live music. It was a wonderful experience that we will not forget soon!

We are also excited and grateful to be featured by Local Spins in their article about the event!

4th of July Celebration!

We are beyond excited to perform tonight at Frederik Meijer Gardens with The Red Sea Pedestrians! Music starts at 7pm and tickets allow access to the entire garden park!

Celebrating their 10th anniversary of creating wildly inventive music, The Red Sea Pedestrians are a full-blown, instrument-swapping fusion between tradition and the here-and-now. We’re talkin’ high-energy world-beat grooves, hypnotic laments from the earth, songs of celebration and wonder; a warped and beautiful blend of American Roots, Rock, Klezmer, Gypsy, Classical and Jazz, all filtered through the band’s original vision.

RSP are a melting pot of six distinct singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalists, almost a self-contained variety show. Their sound is first defined by the sweet interplay between clarinet and violin, further colored by a kaleidoscope of guitar, banjo, keyboard and mandolin, and driven by a rhythm section deep in the pocket. Multi-layered lyrics, rich harmonies, and masterful playing complete the experience. This is a band that can pull you in with a tender folk ballad, get you up and dancing to a ragtime jam, break into a frantic instrumental barn-burner, and then blow your mind with a heavy psychedelic rock freakout.

The Red Sea Pedestrians are proud members of the Earthwork Music Collective, a group of artists who believe in the intrinsic and historical power of music to raise both community and self-awareness and serve to facilitate and encourage original music in the state of Michigan and beyond.
