Gun Flint Tavern | Grand Marais MN

Commitment-free Rock and Roll. While he’s been moonlighting with George Scott McKelvey in the B-Team, former Hillcats singer Billy Johnson confirms he belongs on the A list alongside G.B. Leighton as one of the Twin Cities’ best feel-good, blue collar barroom-rousing tunesmiths with his first solo album, tellingly titled “It’s a Good Life.”
Even the song about a sick child, “Elise Marie,” will lift you up.
