Acoustic Routes is bringing The Love Hangover -- a double-bill concert featuring real-life couples -- to Stony Lake Brewing on Feb. 17, the Saturday after Valentine's Day.
"The concept behind The Love Hangover is simple: who better to sing about love, jealousy, passion and romance than people in a relationship?" says Acoustic Routes founder Jim Cain. "This is a Valentine's gift for people who love live music and craft beer."
First up is Plain Jane Glory from Muskegon. Their songs are honest, passionate, heartfelt, eclectic and nostalgic all at once. Their live performances are full of unbridled and infectious energy and their genuine love of making music together is evident from the very first note.

Next, Olivia Millerschin and James Pyne will take the stage. Olivia is a grand prize winner in the John Lennon Songwriting contest and that same year she made it to the finals of NBC’s America’s Got Talent, where she performed at Radio City Music Hall in New York https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVWncskO02I. Earlier this year, the figure skating pair of Madison Chock and Evan Bates played her re-mix of John Lennon's song "Imagine" during their ice dance at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships.
“Look Both Ways,” her second full-length album, released last year, infuses all of the clever lyrics, haunting melodies and colorful folk, pop and soulful elements she’s noted for https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcDXFe6m--U&t=51s.
The song “Long Weekend” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqY92Ys52FQ, an ode to love found and quickly lost, features artist Michael Grubbs, known to his fans as Wakey Wakey, from the hit TV show “One Tree Hill.”
The cover charge is $15 at the door and 100 percent of the proceeds go to the artists. Show time is 8 p.m.
