Mr. B

. May 24, 2012.

Mark Braun, aka Mr. B, is taking to the road again. Literally. The past two summers Ann Arbor’s internationally acclaimed blues and boogie-woogie piano player has been touring with a custom made bicycle towing his 352-pound Baldwin Spinet. Accompanied, also on bikes, by guitarist Brian Delaney, drummer, Pete Siers and bassist, Carl Hildebrandt, the Joybox Express tours have benefited a number of children’s charities.They’ll begin on July 1st in Saugatuck and chug east, with local stops at the Chelsea Public Library on July 10, followed by a group ride to Ann Arbor’s Wolverine State Brewing Company. Then it’s back on the bikes and off to Detroit, concluding at the DIA on July 15. For their schedule, visit JoyboxExpress.com and join group rides throughout the tour.And, keep your eyes and ears open for the Joybox Express’ even more ambitious ride next year—a three-month fall tour starting at the headwaters of the Mississippi and riding down to New Orleans.
