Mulligan’s Pub
Music Starts 9pm

The Outliers –
Metal band out of Grand Rapids, MI. With gut wrenching vocals assisted by heavy hitting breakdowns, melodic verses with a sprinkle of pop punk fed choruses, The Outliers feed your souls with their vision of a modern Metalcore sound.

Thunder Chicken –
Driving by their mutual love for music and performing, childhood friends put together a band. Over the course of time they developed a style that has been described as well written tunes that feature gangland shouted choruses. That straddles the line between up-tempo, New York style hardcore, and mid-paced, groove-oriented Metal.

Live For Tomorrow –
Live For Tomorrow is a high energy Pop-Punk/Hardcore band hailing from Northern Michigan.

Don The Pariah –
Don The Pariah is an American metal band from Holland, Michigan founded by Michael, Adam, Aaron and Dallas Garcia in 2017. Four Brothers that been playing guitars for years, one day decided to form a band. They split up instruments and later contacted a long time friend Jona Gonzalez to do vocals. Don The Pariah’s musical style incorporates elements of melodic death metal, deathcore, and technical death metal.
