June 20 – Zion Lion Reggae Band. Zion Lion is the “baddest band to hit the Kalamazoo music scene. The members are a combination of several bands from the Kalamazoo area that crossed each others path along the way and decided to form what we believe to be the right mix of reggae. African zouk, mucosa, zoukous and some Afro-latin influences. Some of the members have had the honor of opening and sharing the stage with local, national and international reggae artists such as Freddie McGreggor, Pato Batun, Winston Jarrett, Culture, Beenie Man, Lucky Dube, Mikey Dread and the Meditations.
Our food vendor for this week is the incredible JK Bakehouse! We will upload the menu ASAP.
