We hope this finds you safe and well. Thank you very much for your continued support of our virtual concerts! We will be following Governor Whitmer’s Stay Home/Stay Safe order and will not be doing Gemily shows for now. Instead, we will offer shows five days a week, all live-streamed from 5 — 5:30 PM from the Gemini Facebook page.
We'll be alternating between solo and duo shows:
- Mondays: San and Emily — Children’s show
- Tuesdays: Laz — Grown-Ups' Show
- Wednesdays: Emily — Grown-Ups' Show
- Thursdays: Laz — Children’s Show
- Fridays: San and Emily — Grown-Ups' Show.
Children are always welcome at the Grown-Ups' shows — and grown-ups are welcome at the Children's shows!
And, of course, if you can’t watch at 5PM on any given day, the shows will stay up on our Facebook page, and you can watch them at any time.
We welcome any donations you'd like to make for our shows and are grateful for them. (We will post where to send donations with each show.) We will donate half the proceeds from all shows to various Ann Arbor arts, food support or medical organizations. The week of March 30th we will share donations with Spinning Dot Theatre.
We wish you all the best, and hope you’ll join us!
San, Laz and Emily

For Pete’s Sake — Seeger Birthday Tribute
The Ark Coffeehouse, 316 S. Main St. Ann Arbor, MI
This year marks birthday number 101 of folk legend Pete Seeger, and our 11th annual tribute concert is a celebration of his life and music. The concert will once again be a benefit for the Ark; it feels fitting, as we celebrate the life of a man whom Bruce Springsteen has called “the grandfather of American folk music,” to honor and support a folk music institution that has brought such great music to our community for more than 50 years. We’ll tell stories and, in the true Seeger tradition, lead lots of singalongs. We (Gemini) will join Judy Banker, Annie and Rod Capps, Kitty Donahoe, Billy King, Paul Tinkerhess and Matt Watroba.

8th Annual Benefit Concert in Honor of Helen’s Memory
Cafe 704, Interfaith Center for Spiritual Growth, 704 Airport Blvd., Ann Arbor MI
Laz played a number of concerts at Cafe 704 over the years, always with his wife Helen, until she passed away in 2012. To honor her memory, and to celebrate her life, Laz is dedicating this yearly concert to her. Proceeds from the evening will be donated to two organizations: one that supports nature preservation, and the other, an emergency shelter for homeless children and their families. Both of these causes were very close to Helen’s heart.
Laz will be joined by a band of special guests, all of whom recorded or performed with Helen. Laz and his guests will sing some of Helen’s songs, as well as original and traditional music in both folk and classical styles.
