Gonzo’s Top Five
Grand Rapids Press

This is a great weekend to experience the cultural diversity of West Michigan, with a fund-raiser on the lakeshore that embraces diversity to Cuban music at Meijer Gardens. That’s not all. West Michigan families can learn about American Indian culture at a powwow at riverside Park and also open the door to the variety of food, language and traditions of Hispanic culture at Calder Plaza. Sound like fun? Read on.

Saffire-The Uppity Blues Women-The feminist folk trio is always good for a good laugh, and that’s a good thing. Helping out a serious cause, the Lakeshore Diversity Network, the trio performs at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Knickerbocker Theatre, 86 E. Eighth St. in Holland. Tickets are $20 at the theater box office, and $30 for an after-concert party to meet the musicians.

The Uppity Blues Women also perform this weekend at the Wheatland Music Festival in Remus. For more information, call (616) 846-9736 or go online at www.ethnicdiversity.org.
