GRAND HAVEN, Mich. -- He was the inspiration behind the Spread the Music Foundation in the Tri-Cities area. Now, once again, Grand Haven Charter Township musician/songwriter David Palmer has been stung by the musical community spirit bug.
Palmer has founded the Walk the Beat Foundation which features the tagline “Teaching the Rhythm of Life.” This new foundation will kick off with Walk the Beat, an event to be held on Aug. 16 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. The event will feature more than 300 musicians from all genres and thousands of dollars worth of prizes.
A collection of 40 businesses throughout Grand Haven, Spring Lake and Ferrysburg will host a soloist/duet/trio for the first 2.5 hours of the event and a band for the second 2.5 hours for a total of 80 musical performances. The public will be welcome to come and go from each musical event at any time.
