‘The Love Hangover’ Celebrates the Love Song
Three of Michigan’s hottest Americana bands and a moonlighting priest will explore the love song in all its guises at The Love Hangover, a benefit concert for the Breakfast at St. Andrew’s at The Ark on Saturday, February 18, 2017 at 7:30 p.m.
This is the 8th annual benefit at The Ark for the Breakfast program, with about $65,000 raised to date.
Throughout the night, the artists will mine their catalogs and favorite covers for love songs that make people laugh, swoon, dance and cry in their beer.
• The Whiskey Charmers (Detroit) feature Carrie Shepard, the Detroit Metro Times’ best singer/songwriter of 2016, with Lawrence Daversa on guitar. Critics call their bluesy, Western-influenced sound “silk and steel…heartache and whiskey.”
• Plain Jane Glory (Muskegon) is husband and wife duo Michael Boxer and Laura Crosswait. Performing with a full band for The Love Hangover, their harmonies and arrangements are honest, passionate, heartfelt, eclectic and nostalgic all at once.
• The Flutter and Wow (Detroit), a five-piece band led by singer-songwriter Tasha Lord, have been nominees for multiple Detroit Music Awards since 2012, including Best Folk Band, Best Acoustic Band and Outstanding Americana Vocalist.
• The Very Rev. Dr. Lisa Tucker-Gray (Ann Arbor) By day the rector of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Plymouth, Lisa Tucker-Gray’s adventures in music have taken her from the off-Broadway stage to cabaret and musical theater productions in Europe and around the country, including the national touring company of “Some Like it Cole,” a Cole Porter tribute. She is also the daughter of Rev. Svea Gray of Ann Arbor, who led the Breakfast at St. Andrew’s for 30 years.
