A Salute to the Music of Flint and Genesee County: A Retrospective of Our Historic Music Heritage

With a special appearance by Sam Thompson, former Chief of Security for Elvis! Join us for a retrospective of our historic music heritage.

Along with Sam’s storytelling, we’ll be reviewing some of the history making artists, bands and DJ personalities from Flint and Genesee County and the musical legacy that they influenced and created.  Our retrospective covers
