Metts, Ryan and Collins play house concert July 17
The Griffin House presents Metts, Ryan and Collins Sunday, July 17. “If your idea of a real rock band for the 21st century is one that blends the swagger and bluesy elements of classic bands like The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and Humble Pie, alongside more recent bands like The White Stripes, Black Keys and Rival Sons, then Metts, Ryan and Collins is the band you should see. Playing acoustically for the first time, we'll really connect with MRC's music on a personal level,” says show organizer Claire Griffin. Advance tickets required at www.eventbrite.com.
