One of April’s musical highlights is Mr. B’s Boogie and Blues Piano Celebration.  20 years ago, beloved blues and boogie-woogie pianist Mr. B teamed up with his mentor, pianist Bob Seeley and two more pianists for an evening of different piano combinations at a house concert.  The event sparked a dream that Mr. B made come true one year later.  Starting in 1998, the celebration expanded to The Ark for a big concert.  Over the years, the boogie-woogie, jazz and blues piano bash has grown beyond Ann Arbor to include venues in Detroit and Monroe.  The 20th Anniversary festivities start Friday, April 21st at The Detroit Institute of Arts, continue Saturday at The Ark and conclude on the 23rd at The Monroe County Public Library. 

WEMU is hosting our Jazz Brunch featuring performances by the Rick Roe Trio with live music, great food and an awesome view. Don’t forget to bring your friends and family to this special Sunday Brunch!

A gift of $300 gets you entrance for two. The Rick Roe Trio entertains at an elegant Sunday morning brunch (May 21 from 10:30am – 1:00pm) at this Ann Arbor landmark. Seating is limited.

Mlive reports that Pittsfield Township Police have arrested two people they believe were involved in the break-in of Chad Carr's family home.

For a gift of $200 to WEMU, you and a guest can join the whole WEMU crew with a pair of tickets for the Blues Barbecue Thursday, June 1st, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. featuring Laith Al-Saadi.  The concert and picnic will be held outside of the EMU Convocation Center patio (inside in case of rain).  Note: due to the potential for record attendance, tickets will be mailed after pledge is paid instead of the traditional names at the door. Please indicate the barbecue as your premium choice when you make your gift as this is a ticket event, rather than a bonus.

  Grab your sweetheart and join us Saturday, February 11 from 7am to 1pm as the staff of 89.1 WEMU take over the Northside Grill for “the love of WEMU.”

 Meet your favorite on-air personalities as we show you to your table, pour your coffee, and collect all the tips for the day (don’t worry though — we’ll leave the cooking to the Northside).

Season 10 of NBC's "The Voice" brought Ann Arbor bluesman, singer, and guitarist, Laith Al-Saadi into the national spotlight over the past few weeks. True to his 2013 record "Real," Laith brought a welcome change to the program as part of Adam Levine's team with his gritty, raw vocals, and guitar that landed him a top spot as a finalist on the show. While he took 4th place in the contest,  he'll still bring home the bragging rights as a top-notch blues artist and instrumentalist.
