Jukebox The Ghost displayed talent and great music at this year’s Common Ground Festival.

The six day festival, taking place is Michigan state’s capital city of Lansing welcomed the native D.C. trio on Saturday July 12th.

The 6:30 PM start of the band’s set was nestled comfortably between evening and night, allowing enough natural light to illuminate the band’s entire exuberant performance.
Despite some wind, and an almost runaway tarp around the drum kit, Jukebox played on without a hitch, getting the crowd clapping along, and die hard fans singing in unison.

The three lads played songs spanning their entire discography, including jams from their first album, “Let Live & Let Ghosts”, all the way to their latest colorful LP release of “Safe Travels”.

Common Ground will wrap up its festivities on Sunday in the Adado Riverfront Park in downtown Lansing.

Jukebox played music spanning from their earlier albums, to their most recent LP release, “Safe Travels”, which came out on June 5th of this year.

The Ann Arbor Art Fair was home to a delicious variety of food, served from both tents, and local establishments. In addition to the obvious array of art, the festival offers a free Art Fair app, available through Apple’s iTunes store.
