Grand Rapids Rocks- Head Trip
I love Grand Rapids and all it has to offer with local music, so I decided why not feature local bands here on wgrd.com! Today’s featured Head Trip, they answered a few questions for me below! Check them out, and if you’re in a local band who wants to be featured fill out this form. I don’t just feature anyone, so don’t suck and you’ll get the Jackie stamp of approval 😉 Find me on facebook too, to follow all your favorite local bands, and GRD news by clicking HERE
