On FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 2007 AT 8:00 State Theatre Presents BACK OF THE MOON, Sponsored by WCMU Public Radio.

Back of the Moon are a traditional Scottish folk band, with both new and traditional tunes and songs cast in fresh modern sounding arrangements.

Since forming in 2000, the band have rapidly gained a reputation for their dynamic live performances, touring annually throughout the UK, Canada, USA and eight different European Countries.


Back of the Moon create their giant acoustic sound through a tightly woven frontline of Scottish border pipes and fiddle, an intimate pairing of low whistle and flute, the distinctive rhythmic force of their guitar/piano rhythm combo.

At times augmented by bodhran and Cape Breton Stepdancing, and awesome three-part vocal harmonies in their Scottish songs - in which each unique singer takes the lead. 2005 saw them win Best Folk Band at the Scottish Trad Music Awards, having received Best Up and Coming Act at the awards back in 2003 and Best Celtic Group at Lorient Interceltic Festival 2003.

Tickets are $20.00 and On line ticket purchases are available for your convenience.

Tumbao Bravo Sponsored by Tri-Star TRUST BANK Saturday, NOVEMBER 3, 2007 at 7:30 PM.

2007 Jazz and Blues sponsored by Tri-Star TRUST BANK

Tumbao Bravo is a 5-7 piece Cuban Jazz combo consisting of Congas, Timbales, Sax/ Flute/ Piccolo, Trumpet/ Flugelhorn, Piano, Bass Guitar, and Bongos.

Mambos, Cha Chas, Rumbas and Boleros are just some of the authentic rhythms explored by this exciting group. Many of our songs are composed by band members as well as some classic Cuban Jazz tunes.

Musically rewarding and quite danceable, our presentation is entertaining and fun. We can perform as the smaller group of five pieces, (without trumpet) for quieter background music; or the full 7 piece group which adds Trumpet and Bongos.

Formed in August of 2003 by conguero Alberto Nacif and reedman Paul VornHagen, Tumbao Bravo won the 2005 Detroit Music Award for Outstanding Jazz Recording for their debut release, Montuno Salad. The summer of 2006 saw the release of the second CD, Amigos: From Our Hands which has received huge airplay on the Detroit area airwaves as well as national radio.

Tumbao Bravo has performed at all the major jazz festivals in Michigan including Detroit International Jazz Festival, Ann Arbor Jazz Festival, Lansing Jazz Festival, Sterlingfest, and Michigan Jazz Fest. Jazz club venues include: Baker's Keyboard Lounge, Andy's Jazz Club in Chicago, Ill., the Firefly Club and Goodnite Gracies in Ann Arbor, MI.
