The Music & Arts Guild Showcase, Episode 52 :: Chris James

Hosted by James McGee 25 May, 2017

From an old converted barbershop inside the area’s largest all-nude strip club comes the fifty-second episode of The Music & Arts Guild Showcase with your host, James McGee.

AM1700 is joining forces with The Music & Arts Guild to form a supergroup not seen since The Birthday Party and members of Einsturzende Neubauten and Magazine teamed up to form Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.

Focusing on local music with weekly live, in-studio performances, the Music & Arts Guild Showcase aims to spotlight bands that are making great music in the area. James handcrafts each show by picking out only the best in local music.

In this week’s episode, James is joined by Chris James. Chris is a classical guitar student at Eastern Michigan University with dreams of performing on cruise ships. He sets a Music & Arts Guild Showcase record as he runs through seventeen covers that show his extensive range and versatility. He even shows off a little of his classical training to the oohs and aahs of the studio audience.
