Wessex BBb Helicon in Southeast Michigan

Post by Michael Grant »

Wessex BBb Helicon to invade coffee house in Chelsea, Michigan!

For those interested (and in the area) in hearing the Wessex BBb Helicon in a live setting, I will be performing with Grant & Tussing’s Brass & String Band at Zou-Zou’s Cafe in Chelsea, Michigan on Thursday, January 9th from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m.

Grant & Tussing are string master Rollie Tussing and tubist Michael Grant. Rollie is master of slide guitar as well as fingerstyle guitar and banjo. He has a knack for re-working old obscure tunes, finding beauty in the forgotten scratches, pops, and grooves of his esoteric record collection as well as a plethora of original works. Tubist Michael Grant has been playing in brass, chamber and jazz ensembles throughout West Virginia, Ohio and Michigan for over 40 years. Michael infuses his romping bass lines with melodic direction, providing a solid foundation for Rollie to showcase his impeccable guitar work and gritty vocals. Grant & Tussing bring a wonderful mix of hot jazz, country blues, creepy gospel, old country, weird Tin Pan Alley tunes and some occasional hillbilly to their shows.

Red hot cornetist Ben Green will be our featured guest soloist.

Zou-Zou’s has a wonderful selection of sandwiches, salads and pastries along with beer on tap, wine, coffee and tea.
