Mr. B: Here comes our Michigan-by-cycle tour

Posted By on Fri, Jun 24, 2011 at 9:57 AM

Hello everybody, let me introduce myself. I'm Mr.B, Ann Arbor-based blues pianist and founder of Mr. B's Joybox Express.

The Joybox Express Quartet are making final plans to ride 300 miles across our great state, hauling our drum set in a suitcase, our solar-powered guitar and amp, our doghouse bass, and our 352 lb. piano — all on bikes! We'll be lighting smiles for miles and miles, and raising money for children's charities as we travel. We'll ride from Holland to Detroit from July 2nd to the 15th, check back for more about how and why we ride, where we play, and how you can hook up with us. And we'll be blogging here regularly as we pedal across the state.

This is just a hello shout out, lots more coming soon. Hope to see you on the road, pump up your tires and get ready to glide!!!
