Trace Bundy October 25th & Updates on other shows


Dear Friends of MFGS


We would like to take a moment to thank the guys from California Guitar Trio for an amazing performance last month. If you happened to miss their sold out show don’t worry cause They’ll Be Back!


On  Saturday October 25th  Trinity House Theatre will be hosting another amazing performer

 Trace Bundy 

Trace performed here in 2013 and his show was sold out and we expect the same again.  In 2008 Acoustic Guitar Magazine named Trace “ Most Promising New Talent of the Year”  and he has more than lived up to that!


Show starts at 8pm, doors @ 7:30

Tickets are $20 and $17 for Trinity House Theatre Members   

             Trinity House is located just a stones throw from I-275 and 6 mile road 38840 West Six Mile  Livonia,  

 734-464-6302  Call now to reserve!


"It was easy to see why Bundy plays bigger venues on each tour. In his hands, the acoustic guitar is an imagination station, and there was no telling where he is going take the audience at any given turn. Thrilling stuff."  -  Guitar Player Magazine

and an amazing message from  from Tom Griesgraber (Chapman Stick) who performed with Bert Lams (CGT)  for MFGS a few years back.

Unnamed Lands up for Grammy Nominations!


Hi everyone and happy Fall! 

I've just received some of the most exciting news ever. For the first time, I'm on the ballot for this year's Grammy Awards for my album Unnamed Lands with guitarist Bert Lams, and you might be able to help :) 

We're up for nominations under:

Best Contemporary Instrumental Album
Unnamed Lands
Best Instrumental Composition
"Rebecca" from Unnamed Lands
Best New Artist
Tom Griesgraber and Bert Lams
Album Of The Year
Unnamed Lands

We are also up for consideration under Best Packaging, Best Engineering and Best Liner Notes (categories determined in part by craft committees).

Most award categories are decided by voting members, who are made up of fellow artists, songwriters, engineers and producers. Voting members can listen now on the GrammyPro website, or feel free to contact me if you'd like to dig in deeper. Since the album is a concept album, the booklet with its stories and artwork are a connected piece of the work and are not on the site.

Everyone else.. if you'd like to help us, please share or forward this news with anyone you know who is involved with writing, recording and performing music. Personal notes, or even forwarding our posts on places like Facebook could actually help. We're definitely a small pair of fish in a large ocean here, sharing categories with many of the world's best. It's exciting, humbling and even intimidating being in categories next to some of your musical heroes. My hope is that we can at least make as many folks as possible aware that we're even on the list! 

Voting is going on now and ends November 4th. 

Thanks as always for all your support! It would be impossible to do what we do without it. 

Continued thanks also to our friends Howard Givens, Steve Hall, Jack Durieux, Laurent Durieux and Ben Moore who helped us put the album together. 

All the best,

Tom Griesgraber
