HOLLAND, Mich.-- Downtown Holland’s Groovewalk featured 13 bands at 13 venues and included great local breweries, beer bars and a variety of both national and Michigan acts.

The cost for a wrist-band was $15 and basically served as the cover charge for all of the locations plus free rides on the "GrooveXpress" (if preferred, although most of the locations were in easy walking distance also for those who preferred a pub crawl.) Live musicians entertained patrons.

The great thing about the event was the opportunity to visit some new locations and hear some new bands that might not be familiar along with the tried and true. I made sure to visit the breweries of course, and they did not disappoint. Our Brewing had over a dozen taps available including some I had not previously tried including great brews like Careless Whisper IPA, Handlebar Hopstache, and the already famous Andes Mint Milk Stout. The band on hand here was “Cash O’Riley and the DownRight Daddies,” a very enjoyable rockabilly style group. New Holland Brewing featured the hip-hop funk of “Sophistafunk;” the revisited Paleooza with all Michigan hops was on tap. I also made a stop into 8th Street Grille, Holland’s premier beer bar with a large selection of Michigan drafts. Music was provided by “Eddy & The Breakers,” with covers spanning five decades of music to present.
