Promoting Michigan one Story at a Time!

We create shareable content related to Michigan’s music, beer, and travel industries and produce the podcast Fans With Bands.


Event Coverage 

A sampling of events we’ve covered include:


Chuck is a fantastic photographer. He doesn’t do weddings unless you are a friend or family. Check out the photo gallery; they are all his. Well, mostly, sometimes Brenda throws in one here or there. 



Produce and host Fans With Bands. On each show, we bring together a band and some fans to talk about music, life, and whatever the hell else we want to talk about. It can be difficult to have a conversation with your favorite band at a show or online. We bring the fans together with the bands for a more in-depth conversation. 


Freelance Writers

They write engaging content for publications like the Michigan Brew Trail Magazine and organizations like MSHDA. For MSHDA, they did a series about homeownership programs. At Metal Wani and Loud Hailer Magazine, Chuck writes album and concert reviews and interviews with artists. 


Fees vary; email ( your project and budget. If it fits into our wheelhouse, we’ll talk. 


We don’t allow guest posts on our site.
