2019 Concert Season


July concerts are held RAIN OR SHINE from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM at the Whitefish Township Community Center in Paradise, Michigan. Our August 20 concert will be from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. If weather conditions are such that the concert needs to move indoors we have the advantage of moving the concert inside the center. So bring your lawn chair or favorite blanket and meet us out back between the community center and Whitefish Bay. There are no refreshments available so feel free to bring your own. In this effort, please help keep our bay area clean.

Catching their talents at Tahquamenon Falls Brewery & Pub, this duet came highly recommended. So kick back as Brian strums the guitar and Rebecca plucks the base offering listeners a true Americana experience.


JULY 16    Raaen McLean

Born and raised at Whitefish Point, Raaen McLean's songs are inspired by that legacy and events of his time. His musical performance includes Folk, Country, Soft Rock and his own original compositions. Raaen's original recording "A Victims Tale", is a haunting imagination of the sinking of the Fitzgerald and was written in 1975. Another of Raaen's original works is titled "Flickering Fire" and is dedicated to his father who delivered mail and shipments from Whitefish Point to Vermillion's Life Saving Station by dog sled. We hope you join us, listen, and enjoy!
