SATURDAY, OCTOBER 21st, 2017 – Marquette Masonic Building Red Room Theater Doors open at 7:00 pm, music starts at 8:00 pm.
Detroit’s Laura Rain and The Caesars transform funky soul and R&B into their own unique vision!
Inspired by the spirit of classic recordings of a bygone era, Laura Rain creates her own environment of expression with a powerful and soulful voice. Marquette native George Friend adds his tasteful guitar skills to the band to create an undeniable mix of soul, R&B, blues and funk that keeps the dance floors packed all night.
With the summer 2017 release of their fourth recording “Walk with Me”, Laura Rain and The Caesars push the envelope of Laura’s unique soul music. Channeling inspiration from Detroit’s long and rich musical history, Laura Rain gives modern music a raw, yet sophisticated shot of much needed authenticity and heart.

Admission is $10 at the door. There will be a cash bar available.
