Local bar lands well known rock bands for summer concerts

ISHPEMING — The downtown Ishpeming music scene is going to become a little bigger in June thanks to some help from the crew at Brogie’s Tavern.

General Manager Matt DeWitt and his team are planning to open a new concert venue just steps away from their Second Street location, at the former Central Pontiac Showroom to welcome a well known rock band, Saliva, to Second Street.

“Just the fact that we were able to get a band of that caliber right into Ishpeming, I couldn’t pass it up,” said DeWitt. “I’m hoping to sell out. We made 400 tickets available, so that plus the band and a few support staff we could be up to a maximum of 450.

DeWitt stated that other than Saliva, no other bands have been booked to play at the warehouse as of yet, but he’s still looking.

We still have a decent pile of Saliva tickets for the show on June 7, and the tickets for SteelHeart singer Miljenko…
