The fifth annual Michigan Mega Jam will joyfully honor the state's diverse musical legacy with a sparkling multi-genre all-star cast. Powerhouse singers Ty Stone, Jill Jack, Steffanie Christi’an, Lucas Holliday, Chris Canas, and Audra Kubat will be featured, with host/emcee Nadir Omowale, all anchored by a stellar all-star house band comprised of James Simonson (musical director/bass guitar), Brett Lucas (guitar), Phil Whitfield (keyboards), and Jeff Canady (drums.) The MegaJam cast will perform both original songs and classics by favorite Michigan artists and songwriters, spanning various genres from Motown to Rock to Gospel.
"The annual mission of this All-Star Michigan Mega Jam Revue performance is to showcase and celebrate the amazing depth and wide spectrum of musical talent that Michigan has to offer, for the world at large,” says Mega Jam producer and host Nadir Omowale. "Michigan truly has such a uniquely diverse musical heritage and an incredibly talented music community, and here at home, we tend to take this for granted. Choose any genre. From rock to hip hop, to jazz, to soul, country and techno, Michigan boasts so many powerful artists, it's nearly impossible to name them all. Our annual mission is to honor and celebrate an array of these legendary artists, and songwriters, through the decades, and also show off some of the best current artists the state has to offer. These same performers also happen to be widely regarded as some of the most talented in the world in their respective genres."
