The Chamber is excited to present five very exciting Friday evenings.
Friday Night Music in the Park, Marina Park, 6:30p - 8:30p
July 8 - Ty Parkins Parkin moved to Nashville in 2016 to pursue a career in music but has since moved home after missing life in Northern Michigan. He spent a lot of his time in Tennessee learning from his peers, performing in honky-tonks, writing and doing anything he could to further his songwriting and performing. "I fell in love with performing and getting people excited for the songs and performances," he said. "I did really miss home and, when I moved back, I was really excited to bring that Nashville-like experience to the venues I play at up here." However, Parkin's time in Nashville really helped him hone in his skills as a performer as he sometimes had to perform at one honky-tonk bar at 10 a.m., move down the road and perform again later that day. Some days he found himself performing two or three times a day for hours on end.
