Martin Bandyke on Bennett

Bank of Ann Arbor’s Sonic Lunch concert series is pleased to present the Grand Rapids-based indie-folk trio Bennett for a performance at Liberty Plaza on Thursday, July 30.

With influences ranging from Andrew Bird to John Denver to the Avett Brothers, Bennett is comprised of guitarist Josiah Gentry, keyboardist Nicholas Warren, and violinist/mandolinist Nick Rolls, and the three musicians have quickly gained a following in West Michigan with their heartfelt tunes and intricate vocal harmonies.

Celebrating their third anniversary, this “group of brothers at heart” have already played at Michigan’s prestigious Common Ground and Wheatland Music Festivals, and are sure to impress us in Ann Arbor for their Sonic Lunch concert. Bennett (named after the street where Josiah Gentry lived as a kid) will deliver their modern folk harmonies at Noon on Thursday, July 30th as part of the 8th season of Sonic Lunch. — Martin Bandyke, ann arbor’s 107one

This Thursday, July 30th, Bennett will take the Sonic Lunch stage beginning at noon. The Grand Rapids trio is gearing up for a show that won’t disappoint.

Martin Bandyke on Laith Al-Saadi

After taking a week off to make room for the Ann Arbor Art Fair, Bank of Ann Arbor’s Sonic Lunch concert series will return on Thursday, July 23rd at Noon for a performance by the extraordinary blues-rock guitarist Laith Al-Saadi. The Ann Arbor native is an indisputable master of the Telecaster guitar, in addition to being a gifted songwriter and vocalist in his own right.

Laith’s latest album Real was captured live in the studio with no overdubs, no Auto-Tuning, no muss and no fuss, just incredible, impeccable musicianship. Making Laith’s gig at Sonic Lunch this year extra special is the fact that he will be joined by the Motor City Horns, who have toured extensively with Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band.

A much-loved fixture on the Michigan music scene, Laith is as comfortable playing rock as he is blues, jazz and r&b, having picked up the guitar at the age of thirteen and learning his craft by incessant touring, sharing stages with the likes of B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Taj Mahal and Son Seals. Laith Al-Saadi is not to be missed when he takes the stage at Liberty Plaza on July 23rd as part of the eighth season of Sonic Lunch — Martin Bandyke, ann arbor’s 107one.
