“He’s lyrically influenced by John Lennon, Jeff Tweedy, Ben Folds and Neil Young. Musically, you’ll hear hints of Jeff Lynne, Elvis Costello, Weezer and Wilco. He’s a drummer turned guitarist turned singer-songwriter”* and he’s the talk of Northern Michigan, since his move to the area. Award winning songwriter Brett Mitchell, with 3 original albums under his belt (plus a new one on the way!) and a huge repertoire of covers performed with his own folk rock/pop rock spin, croons for an acoustic evening that will rock your world. Or check the show schedule for an exciting night with Brett Mitchell & the Mitchfits (previously the giant GHOST), Brett singing lead from the drums or guitar or both at the same time along with harmonica.
