April 15th
Excursions starts a new Saturday night party @ Underground Wonder Bar.
I know that we said that we were done with Wonder Bar in Feb. but we got the call back because the building wasn't sold after all. 
So we're starting a new night called "The Late Night Sessions" every 3rd Saturday of the month until the building is sold. So we have at least 3 to 6 months to do something nice.

First before we start, I want to give a big shout out to Terry Hunter & Reggie Corner for coming out and sharing some tunes with us at Underground Wonder Bar.
That's right, that was the last one we did on every 2nd  Friday there.. We'll be back in April every 3rd Sat.

March is kinda slow this month, stay tuned just in case something comes up as spring is almost among us..

We do have one thing for sure and that's the Vinyl Session, Every last Thursday of the month.
A shout to all that came out and jammed with us Carnival style as we did our own little tribute with Brasilian flavored music last month. 

 We'll be back at Danny's on March 30th

Ok, these Pictures below are from last years Excursions:Detroit party Memorial day weekend..
We will be doing our thing in 2017 but we will not be back at the Russell,  which has been our home for the last 5 years. 
We recently found a new place and the details will be up in a few days.. Check back here!!
