September’s First-Friday Dance at D&W
September 6, 2019 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PMDonation
The next First-Friday Dance at Grand Haven’s D&W Fresh Market will run from 7-10 p.m. September 6, 2019. The dance is an outreach of The Salvation Army in the Tri Cities area.
The dance will be held in the store’s café area with spillover dancing in the aisles. In addition to dancing, patrons are welcome to sit and enjoy the music and maybe buy a cup of coffee, a soft drink, and something to eat. If the sun is bright dances and listeners might want to bring sunglasses; it’s bright in the café.
The Frank Eimer has been around the area since the 1960s as “Me and Dem Guys.” The band plays a mix of rock ’n’ roll, country and the blues covers, including tunes from the ’50s, ’60s, ’70s and ’80s. Members of the band include Eimer, lead guitar, John Jennings, saxophones, Tom Davis, drums, Fred Ploughman, keyboards, and steel guitarist Rick Barr. And everybody sings. Eimer and Jennings are in the Michigan Rock and Roll Legends Hall of Fame.
The Grand Haven D&W Fresh Market is at 1116 Robbins Road.
