We forgot to post a reminder about our gig at the fabulous Falling Rock Cafe in Munising, Michigan which is coming up this Saturday, August 27, 2016, from 7-9pm … so here it is now! If you’ve ever been to Munising before you know its a beautiful area with pictured rocks, lake front vistas and gorgeous waterfalls. And if you happen to be spending time in the area this Saturday, why not end your day with a relaxing evening of delicious food & coffee at the famous Falling Rock Cafe while we serenade you. Perfect!! Hope to see you there! — Wyatt & Shari
It’s that time of year and we’re honored and excited to once again be providing the music for the annual Horton Bay Labor Day Pig Roast! Yes, we’ll be “Up In Michigan” in the town Hemingway wrote about and where he spent so many of his boyhood years. In fact he was married right there in Horton Bay! If you haven’t been to the old northwest of Michigan you really owe yourself a visit. There’s so much to see — gorgeous lakes and rivers where cool breezes caress you, scenic vistas and valleys, and plenty of fascinating historical places to visit.
And while you’re here, why not enjoy a delicious Labor Day repast in Horton Bay while listening to some great tunes by Wyatt and Shari? It starts at 4:00 pm at the Methodist Church there in Horton Bay and Shari and I will be singing all the way until it ends at 7:00 pm. Later that evening, you can walk off that scrumptious dessert you ate at dinner by enjoying a candlelight stroll under the stars at the famous “Horton Bay Labor Day Bridge Walk.” And if you make it all the way across the entire span, you’ll not only get a certificate, but there’s also a nice little reward waiting for you at the Horton Bay General Store. The perfect end to a fine day of fun, right? So why don’t you gather the family and treat yourself to some time in beautiful northern Michigan. Shari and I look forward to seeing you there! –Wyatt–
Shari and I are really looking forward to this summer! We have a lot of fun events coming up! Here are some highlights!
This coming Friday, from 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM, we’ll be singing at the Shagway Arts Barn in Ludington. This interesting and historic venue goes all out in support of Michigan Artists. Visitors will find photography, pottery, quilts, paintings, painted glass, carpentry and more. Guests will also enjoy walking on nature trails on the surrounding 40 acres of fields and woods. In addition, they also host a splendid summer & fall concert series. All of this takes place at the site of a restored barn built at the turn of the last century by Henry Shagway, an Ottawa Indian. Lots to see and do and we’re looking forward to being there!
On Wednesday, June 22nd, we return to beautiful Petoskey, Michigan for our annual noon time concert in Pennsylvania Park. We love Petoskey, its history, architecture and shops, as well as its gorgeous location on Michigan’s Little Traverse Bay.
Thursday, June 30th, finds us in Crystal, Michigan for their popular “Music In The Park” series. This inviting and scenic lakeside venue will feature us singing and playing our tunes from 7:00 – 9:00 PM.
In July we’ll be providing music for the “Made In The USA” car show, hosted by Chestnut Fields Retirement Living in Muskegon Michigan. This fun community event is open to the public and we’ll be singing from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM. Location is 5425 Chestnut, Muskegon, Michigan.
Finally, at the end of July, we’re very excited about some concerts we have lined up at three beautiful old Michigan lighthouses where we’re part of an annual summer concert series presented by The Sable Points Lighthouse Keepers Association. We’ll be singing at Little Sable Lighthouse on July 27th and at the White River Light Station on July 28th. These are their Nights At The Lights concerts and both start at 7:00 PM. Also, on July 30th, we’ll have an afternoon concert at the Big Sable Point Lighthouse from 1:30 – 3:00 PM. This concert is one of their “Bus Days” events. We absolutely can’t wait to sing at these beautiful and historic lights.
Well, those are some highlights from our upcoming summer schedule. We have some more things planned in Northern Michigan for August, so stay tuned. As always, you can learn more about where we’ll be playing by checking our online schedule at our website, wyattandshari.com and you can also keep up with the news at our Wyatt and Shari Knapp Facebook page. Michigan is such a beautiful state and the summers here are gorgeous! We invite you to join us at any of our upcoming events. Bring your friends, bring the kids, the grandkids, the whole family too and enjoy the lovely Michigan outdoors with us! Hope to see you! –Wyatt–
This is actually a re-schedule from April of 2013! We all got a little busy and it slipped through the cracks… but now we’re making it happen! We’ll be singing at Fricano’s Pizza (the best pizza in the world, in my opinion) as part of their “Winter Music Scene” on January 28th, from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM. Enjoy some pizza, your favorite hard or soft beverage, and live music by Wyatt & Shari Knapp! Fricano’s Pizza is located on Alpine Avenue in Grand Rapids, Michigan. -Wyatt
Fricano’s distinctive and delicious pizza recipe is still made the same as it has been since 1949! Mmmmmmmm!! https://
