DA Barnes Group has partnered with Datto and disaster recovery expert, Donna R. Childs, for this free webinar. Secure your spot today and learn from the experts how to prepare your business for anything and everything.

East Lansing-based band Jackalope brings their swinging brand of Western-themed Americana to the Opera House.  Charlie Richardson, singer-song writer will be joined by Mike Lawrence, stand up bass and David Stowe, drummer and saxophone. Charlie Richardson's deftly written original songs bridge the gap between story telling and dance in a fresh blend of contry-folk with a sing kick. Their musical styles includes folk, blues, country and Western swing.  Try a "Country Two-Step" at intermission

Tickets $8.00 pre-sale at the Opera House, True Value Hardware in Grand Ledge or MacDowell's Fireplace & Flower Shop in downtown Grand Ledge.  $10.00 at the door.
