Though the Women can’t safely come together to present a live show for you this time around, we have curated a special “new” show comprised of some of our favorite moments from over a decade of archived videos. Woven into this collage of musical numbers will be special video messages from the Women – personal messages and behind-the-scenes stories shared as a kind of love letter to you…a way to connect until we can all be together again.

Please join us for this limited-airing event on January 30th and February 7th.

Saturday Night's a-Live @ The 415

Born in Flint and a true Michigan institution, blues and boogie-woogie pianist, Mark Lincoln Braun (Mr. B), has become one of the premiere purveyors of a vanishing art. Having learned his craft from the early masters (Little Brother Montgomery, Boogie Woogie Red, and Blind John Davis), Mr. B’s passion for showcasing and extending the tradition makes him a major exponent of an essential form of American music. As noted by Jazz News International, “…the future of blues piano is in good hands with Mr. B.”
