Popular Cabin Fever party returns to Rockford American Legion 


 

The Rockford American Legion will once again be hosting the ever-popular Cabin Fever night on January 16, 2016.

“We are privileged to have Mid-Life Crisis (www.mlcband.com) back with us to rock Cabin Fever VII,” said Terri Huffman, Manager of Post 102.

This is the seventh consecutive year that the Cabin Fever fundraiser is being held and it will benefit The Grand Rapids Home for Veterans and ongoing Veterans activities at the Rockford Post.

The Grand Rapids Home for Veterans (GRHV) is a long-term care, state veterans home, located on Monroe Ave NE, near the Grand River. It was originally constructed on that property in 1885 and is one of 143 state veterans’ homes throughout the nation. Initially founded in response to the needs of veterans in the aftermath of the Civil War, GRHV continues the tradition of serving the needs of Michigan’s veterans today, changing and adapting to the needs of the current and future veteran populations. Veterans at the GRHV have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of fun and therapeutic activities, both on site and throughout the community. Your Rockford American Legion, its Legion, Sons of the American Legion (SAL), the American Legion Auxiliary and the American Legion Riders members, volunteer their time to the GRHV.

“We are committed to ensuring our veterans at the GRHV continue to have numerous opportunities to participate in spiritual, social, recreational and educational activities, both on-site and in the surrounding communities,” said Steve Gerencer, co-chair of the event. He went on to say that the importance of conducting these types of events at the Rockford Post could not be understated. “We have a wonderful venue that we will continue to use for the support of all of our Veterans.”

Mid-Life Crisis is a popular 5-piece West Michigan band that has been rocking crowds for 14 years. Loving music from the 60’s and 70’s, they have opened for many national bands such as ZZ Top, Cheap Trick, Eddie Money, Kansas and many others. MLC has a very large West Michigan following, and has been named “Best Band in Grand Rapids” six years in a row by the Grand Rapids Magazine. They have earned three “Golden Townie” Awards for best band in Grand Rapids by On-The-Town Magazine. The Grand Rapids Press Readers Poll has also named MLC “Best Band in Grand Rapids.” Their music has been nominated for 2 Jammie

Awards by WYCE Radio. “Get ready to dance. This is a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with what is arguably the best band in West Michigan,” said Gerencer.

Doors will open at 7:30 p.m. and MLC will fill the venue with great music starting at 8 p.m.

Tickets are $10. They are available in the Legion Lounge and can also be reserved with a credit card for pickup at the door, by calling the Legion Lounge at 616-866-2001. Any remaining tickets will be available at the door. The Rockford American Legion is located at 330 Rockford Park Drive NE, between 11 Mile and 12 Mile on Northland Drive.

*ENT-Rockford American Legion Strumblehead

 

The band Strumble Head will be at the Rockford American Legion on Saturday, October 19.

The event is open to the public. Music starts at 7 p.m. and a swiss steak dinner will be available in the Lounge from 5:30-6:30 p.m.

According to band member Rick Forberg, “Strumble Head is a West Michigan cover band doing music from the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s. The band is known for playing a wide assortment of well-known hits using tight harmonies and superior musicianship to produce a sound that is ‘just like the radio,’ to quote a fan. Unlike the radio however, Strumble Head puts on a show that gets everybody dancing and singing along. When practically every tune is a sing along song, you can’t help but get wrapped up in it and hit the dance floor.”

For more information, call the Legion Lounge at 866-2100.
