Live Music: Marc Bailey @ Fat Hill Brewing
Jun 6 @ 7:00 pm

Marc Bailey, a singer-songwriter and craft beer superfan from the Des Moines area, will join us for a Saturday night jam in June!  Marc’s show will include familiar songs from today all the way back to the 50s, so get ready to hear Imagine Dragons next to Oasis next to some CCR.  Some will be straightforward renditions, while others are original takes on songs not usually heard in an acoustic setting (Crazy Train by Ozzy Osbourne, for example).  Marc’s originals emphasize his unique guitar style and show influence from some of Marc’s favorite songwriters like David Gray, Noel Gallagher, and Glen Hansard.  If Marc looks familiar, you might have seen him and his dad in the Des Moines Register last year (https://dmreg.co/2natUUo) when they were undertaking their epic quest to visit all the breweries in Iowa.  (Sounds like our kind of guy.)  As always, no admission fee.  Performance begins at 7:00pm.  http://www.fathillbrewing.com/eventsmasterlist/marc
