- This event has passed.
State on the Street is back for select Fridays this Summer! Join us outside the historic Kalamazoo State Theatre for State on the Street Presented by Curaleaf featuring James Reeser & the Backseat Drivers Friday May 20!
We’ll have free live music outside our iconic Theatre, patio seating, drink specials, and more! All of the events will be held on Fridays, with our patio and bar opening at 5PM and live music from 5:30-7:30PM!
Patio seating is first-come first-serve and will be limited. Feel free to bring your own chairs.
Sock Rockin’. Juke Jumpin’. The king of swingin’ good times! James Reeser and the Backseat Drivers focuses on a variety of styles in first generation electric blues, keeping it new while maintaining a traditional feel.
A Quahog clam takes 20 years to make a pearl. James’ gritty harp and vocals took just as long. Class is in session! What’s Dan Mish teaching today? Dynamics. Minister Charles Johnson, bass so divine you’d have thought you were in church! Marcus Giddings traded four out of five senses for a guitar. His style now? Tasty.
This four piece will make you jump, jive, and dive in for more!
