If you happen to walk into the M-89 Bar & Grill in Otsego on the third Sunday of the month, don’t expect to hear your favorite cover band. For ten years, the Chili Pepper Songwriting Club has made sure that this night is about original songwriters.

If you head to the lounge at Firekeepers Casino in Battle Creek on any weekend night, and you might find a man performing there. He’ll have a mustache, maybe a cowboy hat. And he’ll be strumming away at a guitar. Rene Meave croons away here, singing original songs of heartache and loss. He's put those songs into a new album, Riding Mustangs.
