Troy Daily, Executive Director of Suds & Snow, is getting excited about the annual event, “My team and I recently took over full operations of the event which has received a ton of community support and a great following in the past, people really love it. We have some really cool ideas planned this year and really making ‘about the experience.’”

Suds & Snow will take place this Saturday, March 7th. Doors will open at 1:30 pm with live music starting shortly after. There will be two stages this year, with alternating sets, sponsored by Drink My Brewcast. Lucas Paul Band will be performing for the first time at Suds & Snow this year. Lucas Paul Band members are Lucas Paul (lead vocals & guitar), Pete Birchler (Lead Guitar, Vocals), Matt Henninger (Bass Guitar), Mike Shea (Drums), and Bobby Streng (Saxophone). All of these musicians are extremely talented who move the crowd with their originals songs and catalog of cover songs that every generation enjoys. (

Brady Corcoran & Sweater Party will alternate with Lucas Paul Band. After spending the last five years living and working as a musician and songwriter in Los Angeles, Brady has moved back home to Traverse City and could not be happier about the new lifestyle. Having recently finished his first semester as an instructor for NMC’s Audio Technology program, Brady is very excited to be writing and performing music again. Starting Sweater Party in LA, Brady has written and recorded a wide variety of music, collaborating with a constantly rotating lineup of talented musicians. Here in TC, Brady hopes to bring some of that music to life, performing with talented local musicians and longtime friends. (
