Handsome Pete
Handsome Pete
Handsome Pete is a five piece Rock/Alternative band arising from Lansing, MI.HP formed in early 2015, primarily learning covers and shortly gigging as a cover band a few months after. With great feedback from audiences, we decided to begin the writing process, and here we are in 2016! And we still do cover gigs, so you can book us for your next event!! We play everything from alternative 90's to classic rock, 80's, and current radio hits!

Taking upbeat acoustic guitar songs Aaron wrote, strife with catchy lyrical content, Adam electrified the music with heavy guitar riffs, solos, and implementing bar chords, while Kirk and Eleu energized a tight rhythm section with obvious metal influences. Justin Deason agreed to work with the band after watching a performance and an invite to jam. Contextualizing an alternative sound with a heavy rock vibe, Handsome Pete is a true homage to the genre of Rock - N - Roll.
Off The Ledge
Off The Ledge
“Good times call for great music.” Off The Ledge current lineup came together in early 2015 with diverse musical backgrounds, and quickly morphed into a cohesive unit, creating a signature sound to their mix of funky, folky, blues influenced, alterna-rock jazziness. Personally, the guys don’t take themselves too seriously and at the onset, their biggest ambition was making each other laugh. Don’t be fooled by that, the musical complexity, instrumentation and each member’s proficiency quickly grabs your attention and speaks volumes about who they really are.

Live performances incorporate an electric mix of original music and covers that showcase their affable personalities and many influences, ranging from Dave Matthews Band, Jack White, Beatles, Led Zeppelin, CCR, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Mumford & Sons, Albert King, & Muddy Waters. The band are experts at intelligently engrossing the crowd with “catchy” tunes with a broad appeal, making for active crowd participation, and an inclusive, “feel good” show. Matt Shannon (lead vocals, guitar), Tab Wakley (lead guitar), Luke Dahlstrom (bass), and Eric Brandes (drums) comprise the band.
