Relax and enjoy Live Music at The Lamplighter Bed & Breakfast and other Ludington, Michigan bed and breakfasts

Several area musicians will be performing in the parlors of our Ludington Historical Bed & Breakfasts.  After enjoying a nice dinner on your own, head to one of our three Ludington Inns for dessert and live music performed exclusively for our guests by featured musicians John Merchant, Chad Rushing, Chris Wiser and Third Coast Gipsy Jazz Band.

Meet the Musicians:
Ludington native John Merchant has known all his life, he was meant to be a musician.  As his bio on his website reads "I swear it's what I imagine being called to the ministry is like.  I just don't know anything else.  Whenever I'm playing, I still feel like the same kid with the 'Beatles Live at the Hollywood Bowl' on the turntable, an unplugged guitar around my neck and a mirror in front of me, it's all I've ever wanted."  Playing music has allowed him to travel the country, make music in major markets like New York City, Nashville, Chicago, St. Louis, Memphis, and Key West, and share stages with acts like CCR, the Goo Goo Dolls, Swag, Robbie Fulks, Rachel Proctor, Deana Carter and other members of Dutch Henry, and with artists such as Ray Wylie Hubbard and Peggy Young as a solo artist.

John will be playing at The Lamplighter Bed & Breakfast from 8-10PM on Saturday, April 21st.

Born & raised in Louisiana, Chad Rushing has been influenced by Blues, Zydeco, Reggae and nearly every other genre you can think of.  He skillfully blends it all together into what he calls Mountain Man Hip-Hop.  Whether he's live on the stage or pumping through you speakers, he's a sure treat and we hope you enjoy!  Chad will be delighting you on Friday evening at Ludington House Bed & Breakfast.

Talented Chris Wiser has been referred to as a human jukebox, and will take your requests.  Chris has been composing original music and performing professionally as a vocalist/guitarist for over 20 years across Western Michigan.  With Grand Rapids based bands Soul Syndicate and Two Headed Sam, Chris has opened for GRAMMY Award nominee Bad Company at Wings Stadium in Kalamazoo, Blue Oyster Cult at the State Theater in Kalamazoo, The Storm at Val-Du-Lakes, and has performed across Michigan at most of the state's large music venues.  Chris will be performing for you and taking requests on Friday evening at Candlelite Inn Bed & Breakfast.  You can learn more about Chris on his Facebook page:

Third Coast Gipsy Jazz Band will be playing at the Ludington House on the evening of April 21.  Two guitars and a big bass fiddle compose this trip whose music is inspired by the sounds of Django Reinhardt - a jazz guitarist who was popular in the 20's to 40's.  Checkout Gipsy Jazz's Facebook page to listen to some of their tunes.

Cost is $25/room in addition to room charges, and includes live music and dessert bar.
