May Erlewine is bringing the boogie around the Great Lakes State! Her retro-groove band, The Motivations will be hosting ‘Winter Dance Parties’ to release their first EP called, ‘In the Night’. This 4 song collection is meant to move you (onto the dance floor). This will be the third year Erlewine has gotten people up on their feet and feeling the community during the holiday season. The shows are all about coming together and celebrating each other, wherever we are at. If you are feeling the weight of the world, these concerts are meant to get you moving your body and feeling connected. Intentionally. May Erlewine, usually known as a tender songwriter from the Americana scene, takes a few dates out of the year to front ‘the Motivations’ and bring you original boogie jams and classic cuts. The Motivations this December will feature, Phil Barry on guitar and vocals, Joe Hettinga on synth, keys and vocals, Eric Kuhn on guitar and vocals, Max Lockwood on bass and vocals, Mike Lynch on organ and keys, Terrence Massey on trumpet and vocals, and Michael Shimmin on drums, percussion and vocals. There are bound to be some special guest appearances and Luke Winslow King will be joining the team to support two of the shows.
