Treading Bleu at Rocky's in Grand Rapids with Cole Hansen and Jes Kramer

We are so excited to be coming back to Grand Rapids and even more excited about the amazing line up! This will be our first show since August and one of the last before next Spring. We can't wait to play again and we'll have two amazing performers sharing the show with us...

Jes Kramer is a one-woman band from Grand Rapids, MI. Using a combination of keyboards, guitar, vocals, and a loop pedal, she weaves her songs layer by layer into something incredibly personal, yet comforting. WYCE named her Outstanding Female Performer of the Year at the 2012 Jammies.
http:// jeskramer.bandcamp.com/

Cole Hansen recently returned to her Folk/Americana roots, and got back to playing what she loved most - acoustic music. She has started to devote more time to songwriting, developing her own unique style and sound. She recently entered her original song video "Tightrope Walker" in the 2013 ArtPrize.

Treading Bleu is composed of a handful of seasoned musicians who came together with the common goal of creating great music that they truly enjoy playing. The band hails from Kalamazoo, MI, and is inspired by the rich heritage of the city's vibrant, but sometimes underrated music scene. Their sound crosses many genres, but coalesces in strong melodies, committed musicianship, and emotional songwriting that strikes a chord with audiences of all ages.
