A native of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Shirtz began his musical career while in high school fronting small house bands to leading variations of big bands and jazz combos, including the Michael Shirtz Quartet. It wasn’t long before Michael was traveling, producing, and performing popular themed concerts and tribute shows. These unique jazz infused programs have reached out to a diverse audience, creating a unique following that embraces music lovers of all ages to Michael’s music nationally. After a nine-year break to pursue other musical interests, Shirtz returned to performing in 2014 by reestablishing the Michael Shirtz Quartet and expanding his interest in composing and arranging music; from performing traditional jazz styles and moving effortlessly into playing Blues, Funk, Rock, Gospel and Singer/Songwriter material. Michael Shirtz’s AMERICA, OUR WAY: An American Songbook Story features highlights and tributes of the great composers and legendary performers that define the landscapes of America’s entertainment industry in the 20th Century. From the music of Irving Berlin and Gershwin, through the struggles of the Great Depression and World War II, up through the sounds of Rock n’ Roll and the Singer & Songwriters era, audience goers will experience a diverse and exciting show celebrating a 100 years in 90 minutes. From the music of the 1930s to the music of today, celebrate AMERICA, Our Way! Tickets available at NMU EZ ticket outlets, starting March 1st. $20.00 per ticket; all proceeds benefit the Marquette Regional History Center.
