Desmond Jones with Annie in the Water
Hill County's meats are dry-rubbed and smoked low and slow over Post Oak wood imported from Texas and our sides and desserts include family recipes and new interpretations.
We stock our bars with Texas-inspired cocktails, creative margaritas, and of course American whiskeys, fine Tequilas and rotating a beer menu.
Desmond Jones is a five-piece funk/rock/jazz fusion band originally from East Lansing, MI currently living in Grand Rapids. With original music written to complement the group's sound as a whole, the music is centered around melodic guitar riffs, funky bass lines, groovy drum beats, and smooth saxophone. The group takes influence from Frank Zappa, The Grateful Dead, Phish, Charles Mingus, The Band, and Led Zeppelin to name a few. Desmond Jones puts on exciting and high energy shows and is proud to say that each set list and each song is different from show to show. They have played all over the Midwest, in Colorado, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Look for them to hit the road in 2017 and catch a show in your city!
Annie in the Water’s music is a groovy combination of Reggae, Funk, Rock, Blues and Jamstyle written with a conscious dose of positive vibes, unique melodies and intelligent lyrics. With the ability to fill an entire night with original music and also render well-known covers into a signature style, fans share extraordinary experiences that can’t be seen anywhere else.
After 9 years performing 600+ shows in over 13 states, the original duo of founding members Brad Hester and Michael Lashomb also lead a full band that will shock your soul into euphoria. Full band line-up includes featured members Joshua West (formerly of Lucid) on drums/percussion, Dillon Goodfriend (Fox Richardson) on keys/backing and Anthony Leombruno (Capital Zen) on Bass. Occasionally the lineup may feature percussionist Bill Bentz (Exit 30) and various woodwind or brass members.
