      Get your groove on for a good cause

      Are you looking to rejuvenate your spirits from the long cold winter? The Spring Thaw Concert and Auction is place to be this weekend.

      It's hosted by Teaching Family Homes to raise money for their programs.

      Spend an evening getting your groove back at the Spring Thaw Concert and auction. Chill out to some American Blues by The Flat Broke Blues Band.

      They are one of four featured bands playing for the cause.

      "A mixture of old and new. And, we'll also be doing our originals in that. So, it's always fun for us to get out and just do what we do," said Lorrie Hayes, Flat Broke Blues Band.

      The concert raises funds for Teaching Family homes a non profit that cares for abused and neglected kids. So, the money collected will go directly to programming and services provided to kids.

      "As we've experienced a good upbringing and parents that cared for us and a good support system they haven't. So, we're very passionate about helping our kids to be able to realize that dream. To get started on the right track. To feel loved and to feel respected," said Rich Rossway, Teaching Family Homes.

      Also playing at the concert Everything Under the Sun. They will play a variety of music styles featuring some of their latest works.

      "It's going to be U.P. style Reggae, a little Blues Cajun Creole funk music we wrote. Which I know it sounds a little strange, but it's actually really really fun. We're going to be doing a lot of our classic rock style writing," said Brett Hanson.

      Enjoy a culmination of local artists Saturday at the Holiday Inn in Marquette starting at 6:30 p.m. More than a hundred items to be auctioned off including paintings from local artists.

      Entry is free, but they are hoping to collect $5,000.
