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.

Tony and Doug teamed up in April of 2008. Their first performance together at the Four Winds Casino Resort in New Buffalo, MI was a huge success. Since that time they have performed at various venues across southwest Michigan and as far east as Port Huron, MI. Tony’s musical background is deeply rooted in rhythm & blues, soul, funk and love. Doug Decker has been performing, recording and producing music since 1975. Doug has mastered diverse musical traditions, combining them to create something new and appealing. Their music will move your feet and move your soul.

Beats on Bates takes place every Wednesday between June and September from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.
