Martin Bandyke on Laith Al-Saadi

Bank of Ann Arbor’s Sonic Lunch is proud to welcome home blues-rock guitarist Laith Al-Saadi at Liberty Plaza on Thursday, June 9!

In case you have been hiding under a rock for the last month or so, let me tell you just a bit about Laith’s incredible journey on NBC’s music competition program The Voice. Working well with coach/judge Adam Levine of Maroon 5 fame, Al-Saadi made it to the final four on season 10 of The Voice, playing flawless versions of classic songs such as The Letter, The Thrill Is Gone, White Room & With a Little Help From My Friends. Now the world knows what we have long known in Ann Arbor: Laith Al-Saadi is an absolutely brilliant musician!

Laith is the only Sonic Lunch artist to play during all nine seasons of the series, and we couldn’t be happier to welcome him back to his hometown of Ann Arbor for what promises to be one of the biggest concerts ever to happen at the corner of the Liberty and Division Streets. See you at noon on June 9. Martin Bandyke — ann arbor’s 107one
