The Leelanau Community Cultural Center will host May Erlwine and the Motivations Dance Party on December 14, 8 pm at the Old Art Building.  May Erlewine is bringing the boogie around the Great Lakes State! So get up and dance.  Tickets for the event will be $20 in advance ($25 at the door) and can be purchased through or call 231-256-2131.  Beer & wine will be available for purchase.

May Erlewine’s retro-groove band, the Motivations will be performing their ‘Winter Dance Party’ to promote the  release their first EP called, ‘In the Night’. This 4 song collection is meant to move you (onto the dance floor). This will be the third year Erlewine has gotten people up on their feet and feeling the community during the holiday season. The shows are all about coming together and celebrating each other, wherever we are at.  If you are feeling the weight of the world, these concerts are meant to get you moving your body and feeling connected. Intentionally.
May Erlewine, usually known as a tender songwriter from the Americana scene, takes a few dates out of the year to front ‘the Motivations’ and bring you original boogie jams and classic cuts. The Motivations this December will feature, Phil Barry on guitar and vocals, Joe Hettinga on synth, keys and vocals, Eric Kuhn on guitar and vocals, Max Lockwood on bass and vocals, Mike Lynch on organ and keys, Terrence Massey on trumpet and vocals, and Michael Shimmin on drums, percussion and vocals. There are bound to be some special guest appearances!

Come on in! Let’s Dance.

This event is sponsored in part, by the Leelanau Community Cultural Center, The Edmund F and Virginia B Ball Foundation, the Michigan Council for Arts & Cultural Affairs, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
