The Allure of Live Music
There’s definitely something to be said about the allure in taking a well-rehearsed show on the road. At MJBE, we’ve been lucky enough to have toured all across this great continent; playing Motown in Motor City, rocking out at infamous Hard Rock Hotels, and commanding the stage for festivals of tens of thousands. However, there’s something extra special about being at home surrounded by the fans we’ve come to know and love. Pouring our hearts out on stage for the ones who have been with us since the very beginning – those who watched us grow into who we are today.
