Gifts of Art brings rock, blues and Motown music to UH

June 13, 2018  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

The Rock Jones Band will play a free concert on Thursday at University Hospital.

The Rock Jones band has passion for their music and a connection to the area through their ties to Ann Arbor and Detroit.

Larry Genoa (guitar and harmonica) and Phil Ryski (guitar) have both played professionally in the area since the 1960s. Brian Genoa (drums) is Larry’s son, so their musical connection is deep. Doug Wolgat began playing bass in 1973 and met Larry in his first band (the Fuzz Brothers) in Detroit. Ryski and Wolgat first became band mates in 2005 when Ryski joined Wolgat’s previous band, the Bluescasters.

Michigan Medicine patients, families, faculty and staff can hear their harmonies and up-tempo rhythm of soul-style covers from Gladys Knight to Van Morrison in a free concert on Thursday afternoon!
