    This is going to be a great night at The Alluvion! Get your tickets quick friends, the dance floor can only hold so many! Two Midwest Rock n Roll Jam champions join forces for a holiday weekend smash. Let's boogie! 

    Desmond Jones  is a five-piece rock band from Grand Rapids, Michigan. Their original music is centered around melodic guitar riffs, funky bass lines, groovy drumbeats, and a big ole' pile of saxophone. Desmond Jones puts on exciting and high-energy shows with a high level of musicianship and skillful improvisation. Each show, set list, and song is different from night to night. The group takes influence from Frank Zappa, Grateful Dead, The Beatles, Mingus, Phish, The Band, and Led Zeppelin to name a few. Since 2012, the group has played 800+ shows across the country and has shared the stage with bands like Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Papadosio, Ripe, Joe Russo's Almost Dead, EOTO, Here Come the Mummies, Aqueous, Mungion, Dopapod, Nth Power, Kick the Cat, Joe Hertler, Eggy, and many more. Desmond Jones has released two EPs and four full length studio albums available on all major platforms. The band is touring in 2023 and hitting every diner along the way.

    The Marsupials  are a band that defy easy categorization, weaving together a diverse tapestry of genres to create a unique experience. With rock, indie, funk, psychedelic, ska, and progressive elements, their music showcases an impressive array of musicianship while never being afraid to keep it simple for the sake of the song. Led by the main songwriter, Tai Jaxx Drury, The Marsupials have cultivated a reputation for electrifying performances and raucous good times throughout their home state of Michigan.
