Cleveland Rocks Past Present and Future present Michelle Gaw and Liz Kelly for a limited in person show at the Grog Shop

This special intimate socially distanced in person show featuring 2 of Cleveland's finest solo performers was made possible by Wednesday Songs & Stages Series. We are using as this as the kick off event to promote our Keep Rock Alive at the Grog Shop iniative . We hope to raise the $7,300 necessary to continue these shows through December and add the extra bonus of partnering with independent restaurants in the Cleveland Heights area.

Michelle Gaw is a singer/songwriter from Cleveland, Ohio. She has been writing and performing music for the last seven years. Gaw finds inspiration through making observations that are equal parts quirk and soul. Her songs often confront the heavier and darker parts of life, but they are rarely left without a joke or two. Her delivery often feels conversational, though her songs are melodically rich. Gaw founded Mimi Arden, a trio band consisting of Lee Kolarik (drummer) and Matt Miller (bassist), which she is the sole songwriter of. Mimi Arden expands upon Gaw’s songwriting ideas, breathing fresh life and meaning into her work.

Liz Kelly is the front woman and songwriter for Cleveland rock band The Village Bicycle. She writes fun, upbeat songs about outer space, cognitive dissonance, and the abject horror of modern life. Major influences include Rilo Kiley/Jenny Lewis, Linda Ronstadt, Leonard Cohen, and the riot grrrl movement. A board certified Music Therapist, Liz is passionate about using music therapy to connect with and treat those with Alzheimer’s and dementia. She is beyond grateful to everyone who continues to support live music and music venues during these difficult times.
