Beats on Bates feat. Out of Favor Boys

Downtown Kalamazoo’s live music scene is a special part of the city. Adding to the already vibrant music scene is Beats on Bates – a free live music series that offers visitors and locals alike the chance to wind down on a Wednesday evening, indulge in a meal and some drinks, and enjoy the musical stylings under the beautiful lights of Bates Alley.

Originally conceived in Kalamazoo, Michigan in 2003, the Out of Favor Boys have evolved into a blues staple in Southwest Michigan. Since 2003, the group has developed a reputation as an entertaining and interactive contemporary blues band.

 The series takes place every Wednesday between June and September from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.
