When the Tuesday Evening Music Club kicks off its biggest and strongest season ever at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park tonight, it will do so with special musical fireworks planned by the two featured artists .

Kalamazoo award-winning hip-hop cellist Jordan Hamilton, who often performs solo, plans to perform as a trio.

The Elijah Russ collective, meanwhile, will fill the stage with 12 musicians, unleashing soul rock and mixing genres.

“We’re super excited,” said Russ, who recently released two studio albums. “Expect high-energy fusion rock with a 12-piece band of some of West Michigan’s finest musicians.”

Hosted by singer-songwriter Ralston Bowles, it’s a fitting show to kick off the 2022 series which features local and regional artists from a wide range of genres.

Admission to the 7 p.m. shows is free for Meijer Gardens members and just the regular admission price to the gardens for everyone else — one reason the series draws large family crowds on Tuesday nights.

As a special preview of this season’s expanded Tuesday Evening Music Club lineup, Local Spins has compiled a special playlist featuring most of the artists playing the series this summer. (Some weren’t available on Spotify.) Listen to the tracks and scroll down for the full series schedule.
