ThunderwUde started out primarily as a traditional bluegrass quartet with guitar, mandolin, fiddle and upright bass. ThunderwUde has since evolved into a tight-nit trio that can bounce between intricate original compositions, bluegrass standards, and current billboard hits within the flick of a fiddle bow. With decades of collective touring behind them, ThunderwUde's live show is one that charms human emotions with impeccable songwriting, affectional melodies and vocal harmonies, while further satisfying the intellect with seasoned instrumental chops and musical improvisation. ThunderwUde members have shared the bill with many notable artists including Arlo Guthrie, Keb Mo, Sam Bush, David Wilcox, LeAnn Rimes, The Raconteurs, Sheryl Crowe, and Taj Mahal, to name a few. Additionally, they have played such notable folk venues as The Ark, The Bluebird Cafe, Canal Street Tavern, World Cafe Live, The Bijou Theater, Big Top Chautauqua, and The Birchmere. They also cook some mean mac and cheese.

Sat | Aug 19 | 6:00pm John D. Lamb Don't miss this special live appearance by our good friend John D. Lamb in our beautiful outdoor Legs Inn Garden! "Audiences throughout Michigan are familiar with John D. Lamb as the front man of his rock band or as a solo acoustic act. Others know him as the director of 'Lamb's Retreat for Songwriters' where he gives other musicians a chance in the spotlight. In addition to bringing in some of acoustic music's top songwriters as faculty members, Lamb has given out over 1000 individual songwriting assignments to musicians throughout the country. He was a journalism major at Central Michigan University. In 1980, while living in Mt. Pleasant, he formed his first band, Johnny D. and the Stains. He later toured the rock club circuit throughout the Midwest. In 1990 he and his band recorded the regionally acclaimed CD Live at Legs (recorded at Legs Inn, Cross Village). Lamb infuses his music with strong attention to detail that gives the songs the dexterity to work as rock tunes or as acoustic storytelling. Lyrically, he insists on finding the exact word or phrase to shade a line with a particular meaning. John D. Lamb's CD, Feel That is the winner of the 2007 Detroit Music Award for Outstanding Acoustic/Folk Recording."

A natural poet, this young songwriter went to school on Bob Dylan, Robert Johnson, and Jack White, among others. His lyrics speak directly to a younger generation that hears, sees, and thinks about the very things he�s writing. From their opening song to the finale of their set, the Ben Daniels Band cuts through with their originality, musicianship, and a sound that spans Americana, Blues, Jazz, and Rock. Throughout years of touring, BDB has played notable venues in Michigan such as the The Ark, The Blind Pig, and the Magic Bag, and have toured to New York City, Washington D.C., and Nashville . As a solo artist, Ben has stepped on the stage in Austin, TX at the Cactus Cafe, as well as The Barns at Wolf Trap. The son of actor Jeff Daniels, he has quietly monitored what it takes to live life as an artist. Beyond a passed down talent, the Ben Daniels Band believes in hard work, perseverance, and creatively challenging themselves and their audience. With Tommy Reifel on bass, George Merkel on guitar, Wesley Fritzemeier on drums and mandolin, and singer/songwriter Amanda Daniels on vocals, BDB�s live show never fails to take over the venue. Their songs become anthems with arrangements that pull people inside their sound. With five CDs under their belts � Coming From The C, Checkin� In To The Michigan Inn, Can�t You See, The Mountain Home EP, the dual album & movie release Old Gold and their most recent release, Roll � the Ben Daniels Band has grown to be a formidable group that sounds pleasantly familiar, yet unforgettably unique.
