Jesse Ray & The Carolina Catfish
Jesse Ray and the Carolina Catfish is a 2015 Jammie award winning Rock-N-Roll band from sunny Grand Rapids, MI. Founded in the fall of 2013, Singer and guitar player Jesse Ray Carolina started a rockabilly-influenced duo that played numerous gigs in West Michigan. They have also toured as far as New Orleans in the winter of shortly after releasing their debut album “Gravedigger”, winner of the “Best Roots/Revival Album” award by WYCE. “Dead Man Walking”, Released in September of 2015 is the band’s sophomore release. The band hopes to take it’s high energy shows to new places, and faces around the United States and beyond. Influenced by blues, punk, and rock-n-roll with a small dash country; hard hitting guitar, splitting harmonica, rambunctious drums, and crooning vocals will lay in the wake of this band’s performance. If you’re a fan of back to basics or “old school” rock-n-roll, this is a band you won’t want to miss.

Hannah Rose & The Gravetones
“Hannah Rose Graves has a voice that rides through her bones, from her toes to her tongue, through her cells and through her blood. She sings like someone who knows how short her time is. She sings with her whole life. Her band Hannah Rose and the GravesTones are a cross pollination of Funk, Blues, Country, Jazz, and Rock n Roll- with SOUL. It’s the type of music that stops people’s conversations. It’s the type of feel that people who love music wait for: the real thing. After practicing guitar eight hours a day since he was 12, Justin Wierenga’s virtuosity can fill a room with what sounds like three guitars. He is truly a guitar genius. “Thunder doesn’t happen much in music. The GravesTones harness it every night.”
-Noah Haidle, Screen-writer of Stand Up Guys

Tell Yo Mama
Tell Yo Mama is a soul-groovin’, rhythm-and-blues havin’, funk rock band. With enough funk-sauce to play all night and then some, we love music and love making it. From soulful rock original compositions to an eclectic mix of cover songs, it’s all about having fun, kicking out some jams, and loving what we do. Hungry and for-hire, Tell Yo Mama is ready to expand further and higher, and turn our dream into a reality. What started in August 2014 as a few friends jamming, has slowly grown into something far beyond the original vision, and we look forward to sharing the experience with you!

2Bays DJs is locally owned and operated by Scott Perry, a young entrepreneur out of Michigan State University. Scott started DJing professionally in East Lansing in 2007. The summer breeze was calling this Traverse City native back home. He knew there was no place he’d rather live than down by the bay in TC.
