Moore Media Records, Hunter’s Ale House hosts first all-ages show Friday
A diverse set of bands rocked Hunter’s Ale House stage Friday night as part of Moore Media Records’ “Coming Home” show.
The Mount Pleasant-based record label, which operates in Moore Hall, put on the all-ages show featuring Mount Pleasant bands Moses and Newday Dreamers, along with Grand Rapids band The Matt Gabriel Trio at the bar and grille, 4855 E. Bluegrass Road, to promote the local music scene and the label who helps to record bands around the area.
Trenton senior and Moore Media Records production manager Joe McCarthy said the show being all-ages helps the local music community and the Mount Pleasant community by allowing underage fans to see the show.
“Here, they’ll allow all-ages shows,” McCarthy said. “We wanted people of all ages to enjoy the music, regardless of being able to drink or not.”
Clinton Township junior Kurt Nagl said Newday Dreamers were a good, tight unit.
“(They were) in tune with the actual arrangement,” Nagl said. “The style of music is kind of dreamy. I like it.”
He said Moore Media Records should have shows more frequently.
“The more shows, the better,” he said. “If they did this consistently, I would be here consistently.”
Moses guitarist and singer, Nathan Zinzi, said his band is happy to play all-ages shows when given the opportunity.
“We’re super stoked that it’s allages,” Zinzi said. “My peer group is not 21 yet.”
He said having more shows for all ages could potentially open the door for touring bands to come through Mount Pleasant more often.
“I would want that for sure,” he said. “It would open up way more opportunities for us local bands.”
Brighton senior Adam Marth, who plays guitar in Newday Dreamers and also sings and plays guitar in The Deep End, said Hunter’s Ale House could be a great venue for music given time.
“I feel like this place is a good place for Moore Media Records to put on shows,” Marth said.
He said having an all-ages show gives a promoter more options for whom to promote the show toward.
“You can promote in the dorm rooms,” he said. “You have this huge amount of people to promote to. More all-ages shows would help this community.”
Big Rapids resident Evan Rice came to the show to see Moses for the first time.
“I’m looking forward to hearing their sound,” Rice said before their set. “Whatever fusion it is of music.”
