Sam had original songs he was ready to release. Sam and Sage called up their fathers Dave Luna (bass), and Tim Castleberry (drums), both friends and musicians, to come out of retirement to form a band. With a four piece set, the band was in search of a keyboardist, when a close family friend, Chris Gillette, came to mind. Chris also played a role in both Sam & Sage’s childhood as he was their coach in sports when the boys were growing up. Knowing Chris was a seasoned keyboardist he was brought onto the band to join the four piece band.

The father-son dynamic with both Sam & Sage makes the Sam Luna Band a special group to watch. They can be seen at shows across Southwest Michigan playing Sam’s released music, and covers anyone would enjoy. Sam is best known for his ever growing set of originals, along with radio hits from decades all the way back to the 60s. Crowd pleasers are enjoyed by all ages, as Sam and his band have an enjoyable, classic, modern sound.

The Megan Rae Band

Megan Rae (Macher) was born on January 30th, 1996 in Kalamazoo, MI. By the age of two, her parents discovered that Megan Rae had an uncanny ability to memorize lyrics, and sing on key. As she got a little older, it became clear to her family and friends that Megan Rae had been blessed with the gift of song. Megan Rae’s passion for music and her singing ability grew stronger with each passing day, and at six years old she made her first public appearance when she sang the National Anthem at a Kalamazoo Kings baseball game in front of over 3,000 people. She became a regular guest soloist for both the Kings, and the Kalamazoo Wings semi-pro hockey team.

Annual trips with her father to his hometown of Pittsburgh, PA took an interesting turn when her dad was reunited with his cousin, singer, songwriter, musician Ron ‘Hookstown’ Brown, at a family reunion. Brown had a small recording studio in his home, and when he heard Megan Rae sing for the first time he knew that he was hearing something special. According to Brown, “I’ve been writing, playing, and recording music for many years, and I wasn’t expecting anything more than making a fun little CD of cover songs as a keepsake for Megan. But when she started singing, I just couldn’t believe that big, powerful voice was coming out of that little girl! I knew we had to do something more, so we started writing songs for her”. That’s how it all started.

At the age of 13, she began work on her self-titled debut album. The album was produced by Robyn Robins, keyboard player and founding member of Bob Seger’s ‘Silver Bullet Band’. Robins brought in past and present Silver Bullet Band members Alto Reed (sax), Shaun Murphy (background vocals/harmonies), Drew Abbott (lead guitar) for recording. He also reached out to Paul Warren, Rod Stewart’s long time lead guitar player, who gladly contributed his incomparable skills to the project. And if that weren’t enough, Mark Farner of Grand Funk Railroad not only played and sang on the album, he also wrote one of the cuts (“Such A Good Thing”). Singer, songwriter, musician Vince Melamed, who has written several hit songs including Trisha Yearwood’s signature number one, “Walkaway Joe”, and Ty Herndon’s number one, “What Mattered Most”, also wrote one of the cuts (“Truth’s Been Told”).

Megan Rae traveled to L.A. to shoot a music video for the first single from her CD. It was filmed and directed by Jim Shea. Shea has photographed and/or shot videos for Brad Paisley, Eagles, Jackson Browne, Barbara Streisand, Olivia Newton John, and many, many other super stars. The video has aired on TCN (The Country Network), and Megan Rae has been featured on RFD T.V.’s “Michigan Magazine Television”. This small town Michigan girl has quickly emerged from the Midwest region as one of the most talked about female vocalists in years. At the age of 16, she was named by the official magazine of The Country Music Association (Close Up) to their coveted annual list of “Who New To Watch”, along with Kip Moore, Dustin Lynch, Casey James, Thomas Rhett, Eric Paslay, and several other rising country music stars.

Megan Rae’s dynamic live show features a mix of old and new country favorites, classic rock standards, and her own original material, allowing her power, range, and vocal maturity to shine.
