Mixers: Cocktails and Dreams
Sunday August 2 @ 4:15 PM
Accidentally Hip’s signature sound of taking tunes and flipping them has been electrifying audiences in the greater Ann Arbor and Detroit area for a decade. Led by award-winning arranger and composer, Ryan MacKenzie Lewis, this versatile ensemble takes on everything from early swing and jazz standards to R&B, Hip Hop, and current pop tunes – all with Accidentally Hip’s distinct twist. Their broad musical influences merge together to create a unique, fun, and dynamic musical experience. It won’t be easy to stay seated as singer, Courtney Riddle, takes you through an evening showcasing the sultry melodies of some of the greatest female crooners of all time from Etta James to Adele. On tap are the swingin’ talents of David G. Maki, II (tenor sax), Michael Rais (bass), and Billy Harrington (drums), with guests Lauren Pulsipher (violin), Chase Ward (violin), Bethany Bagbey (cello).
