Tonight’s final Tuesday Evening Music Club show at Meijer Gardens will be a star-studded affair.

The Ralston & Friends show at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park will also feature performances by Wisconsin singer-songwriter Peter Mulvey and, of course, Bowles, who founded the long-running series and always brews up a special roster of musical guests for the final Tuesday in August.

Crenshaw, a Detroiter who made a splash in the 1980s with rock/pop songs such as “Someday, Someway” is co-producing The Accidentals’ upcoming new album in New York with Grammy Award-winning recording engineer and producer Stewart Lerman. The young indie-folk band – featuring multi-instrumentalists Savannah Buist, Katie Larson and Michael Dause – already has recorded several new songs in New York City, with hopes of releasing the new album in coming months.

The Tuesday Evening Music Club series winds up at 7 p.m. tonight. Admission is free for Meijer Gardens members or $12 for adult non-members – with discounts for seniors and children – as part of Meijer Gardens’ regular admission charge. Get more details online at
