Voxanna and the Sugarees w/ Mary Hartman – January 21, 2023
January 21 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm$20.00
Billy Brandt is a multiple-award-winning Detroit area singer-songwriter, whose rootsy, folky, psychedelic alt-country background underpins strong songwriting and an adventurous spirit. Join us as we celebrate his musical vision with performance from his group Voxanna and the Sugarees along with special guest Mary Hartman.
When 2020 brought us lemons, Voxanna made lemonade.
The result of two musician couples combining their talent during lockdown to pass the time and stay sane, Voxanna’s sound is uniquely eclectic, groove focused and drenched with three-part harmonies and sparkling acoustic guitar.
Their songs travel deftly through the realms of neo folk, psychedelic rock and jazz with touches of The Byrds, Miles Davis and the sentimental musicals of the 1950’s, with a world beat sound provided by the rhythm section.
Voxanna has had numerous successful virtual and live performances since early 2021, and are looking to play at venues and parties in 2023 and beyond.
Born in Detroit, Michigan as one of 10 children, Mary Hartman’s love of music began at an early age. She ordered her first guitar from a Sears catalog at the age of 14 and never looked back. She honed her Songwriting skills day after day, night after night, in her bedroom on the 3rd floor of their big, old house. Her Dad worked in a Auto Factory as an electrician and her Mom stayed at home taking care of their large family. Many of her songs come from her upbringing in a blue collar, hardworking, Church on Sunday Family.
