Dear friends, I need your help. Please take the time to read this post if you consider yourself a friend of mine or a fan of my band. If you don’t know about the miraculous work that my good friend Melissa Zudweg Bordendoes at her animal rescue, The Devoted Barn, then you should educate yourself. This is one of the few shelters in existence that will take on ferals and other extreme cases of abuse, neglect and hoarding.
If you are any kind of animal lover or compassionate person then you can appreciate the role that specialized shelters like this fill in society that often leaves our most faithful best friends in a state of abandonment, starvation and physical pain. The Devoted Barn is dedicated to the relief of this suffering. Melissa is a personal trainer and her boyfriend Lance Powell is a state cop. Neither of them can financially support such a huge operation to provides for the care and feeding of these animals, yet they pour all their available funds and time into it. Melissa and Lance and a group of amazing volunteers work nonstop before and after their jobs to ensure that these animals are not only provided for, but shown unconditional love.
Cost is $35 and includes food and drinks. I know that I am not Zac Brown or Rihanna, but if you think of the cost last time you went to a concert that does not even compare and it certainly doesn’t include food or drinks. What would you normally spend on a night out? I am sure this beats the price. Please help us! Put a deposit in your Karma bank today! If you know me at all then you know how hard it is for me to ever ask for help. Thank you so much for reading!!
Karin Elizabeth and the Remedy Band find their home on Thursdays at Marlow’s Chill & Grill Sports Bar in Flat Rock.
FLAT ROCK — Featuring the extensive use of the electric fiddle as a lead instrument, high-energy sound and widely varied musical selection, Remedy is Metro-Detroit’s most booked cover band. Featuring international recording artist Karin Elizabeth on electric violin, fiddle, guitar and mandolin, Remedy is also one of Detroit’s most unique bands.
For the past five years, Remedy has performed over two hundred shows per year, four nights a week starting on Thursday nights. Although Remedy plays all over Metro-Detroit as well as Regionally and Nationally, traditionally weekdays have been reserved for the fans in the downriver area. Three of Remedy’s band members, Karin Elizabeth, Larry Braden, and Billy DeAngelo live in Allen Park.
Karin Elizabeth, the lead singer of Remedy says that, “Weeknights have traditionally been reserved for our downriver crowd. This crowd has supported us through thick and thin for the last five years, and we are just as loyal to them as they are to us. They want to see us make it big.”
The contagious live energy of this Detroit five-piece has wowed audiences in venues from bars to festivals, weddings to casinos throughout the Metro-Detroit region. Remedy covers just about every genre of music there is, as well as performing show-stopping fiddle-centric covers of epic songs such as, “The Devil Went Down to Georgia.” The band’s unique sound is created by songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Karin Elizabeth, complemented by lead guitarist Larry Braden and rounded out by a dynamic rhythm section comprised of David Cowie on Keys, Nic Cole-Klaes on bass and Billy DeAngelo on drums. With each musician sharing lead vocal duties the sound is as rich as it is versatile. Remedy performs covers as well as originals.
