Saugatuck, Michigan




"Let's go drifting through the trees.  Let's go sailing on the seas.  Let's go dancing on the juke-joint floor, and leave our troubles far behind. Have a party!

So easily forgotten are the most important things.  Like the melody and the moonlight in your eyes.  And a song that lasts forever, just keeps getting better all the time."
                                                                                                                             --- 'Keb Mo'
