It's that time of year when you may need a few moments to take care of yourself. Spend a few moments in the comfort of the Whiskey Parlor above grand Trunk Pub. Your night includes specialty cocktails, comfortable leather couches for lounging and live music. I’m personally looking forward to the bourbon soaked cherry cheesecake!! Sounds like the perfect evening to warm your spirits!

Holiday cheer, beer, and pizza. Sounds like a winning combination to me. Bruce and I will be blending our voices to perfection over the happy strums of his guitar. Stop on by if you’re in the area to say hello, and I guarantee you’ll stick around. The service at this place is outstanding. And don’t let that whole golf club, banquet room vibe make ya feel up tight. The clientele here is happy to chill, sing along, and play extra large jenga all the while! We love it!

PRIVATE PARTY —Chrissy Morgan is available as a duo, a trio, or a full band. Book your holiday party, cocktail hour, and dinner party today.
Susie and I will be singing holiday tunes, sampling wines, and parking for free… and you can do the same!! This gem of a place is so easy to get to, located right on Woodward and offers great last minute bottles to go. The perfect locally made gift for holiday gift giving, secret santas, or solo date nights!

PRIVATE PARTY — We’re scheduled to perform for a lovely wedding. Message me to book a duo for the cocktail hour, a trio for the first dance, or a band for the night.
This may be the 3rd year that I’m performing at 8 degrees Plato in Detroit. How could ya not love singin some holidays tunes alongside holiday “spirits”? This place is just so hip. Sure having a unique selection of beer always on tap, but they also helped to raise money for the group, “Enough Said” to help fund the ability to test thousands of backlogged Wayne County rape kits… now if that ain’t drinking for a cause, I don’t know what is… Support local businesses during the holidays that do good things for the community!

What exactly would a highschool Chrissy Mulligan think about performing on the same stage as THE CRASH TEST DUMMIES??? I really dunno. It sure does bring back memories of Mr. Big and Extreme. Pretty psyched. The Dummies will be playing their whole album, God Shuffled His Feet, in entirety for their 25th anniversary. Joe and his band will be perfect for this show!
Enjoy a fine dining experience like no other. When you step into The London Chop House, you are stepping into a piece of Detroit's history dating back to the 1930's. Live music has always been supported throughout and the clientele who have chosen to dine included names like Frank Sinatra, Lee Iacocca, Bob Hope, and Kid Rock. My fav has to be those rib tips from the appetizer menu!!
Reservations requested (request to sit neat the band)

Super proud of Joe Jaber for pouring out his heart and soul through lyrics and music. His 6 song EP, Made It On My Own, will be released with a performance featuring the recordings at Lyft Lounge (above Hockeytown). This evening will also be a celebration of Joe’s new charity, “You’re Not the Only One”, helping those with depression and drug addiction. Honored to work alongside and record with this outstanding guy.

When you want to get things done, (the big things in life that no one is talking about, but everybody should know) you have to think outside the box. Well, Melissa Parks and her foundation, Art & Soul Dreams, does just that in the most creative way. She opens up the topic of foster care through a traveling portrait exhibit featuring the children who could use a little love. So what a better place to find wall space than a furniture store.

Just got through pretaping a performance for tomorrow morning…who wants to work on a Sunday? Anywho.. We jammed!! TUNE IN!
Michigan by the Bottle is so nice, I had to go twice. Bruce and I will be slingin those harmonies to the fancy ladies who like to drink wine with their pinkies raised… I’m one of those ladies!! Sure I love to sing, but I do fancy liquid grapes every now and then and how cool is it to live in a state that has enough varietals to make a store dedicated to Michigan made wines. Local music/ Local grapes!

What could be better than an evening of wine tastings, chocolate bites, and live music?? GETTING IT LOCAL!! That's right, MIBTB (Michigan by the Bottle) sells only Michigan made wines. An entire wall of bottled selections, but don't worry. They make it easy on ya.. providing a tasting menu with detailed descriptions and everything. Hope to see ya then!

By this point you’ve heard of Chrissy & Susie, and Chrissy & Bruce, but have you had a chance to hear Chrissy & Troy? Though our performances are scheduled only a couple times a year, each gem is one to remember. Troy has gone from neighbor, to friend, to musical partner and any chance he wants to join up, I’m all for it. We really would do it for free, it’s that kind of vibe…and if we can get a couple friends to join us, well that’s cool too!
