Throughout the year, Aloft Hotels is presenting “local emerging talent” through Live At Aloft Hotels, a signature music series that features acoustic performances and meet-and-greets at its hotels worldwide. At 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 17, North of Nine, a band featuring Ohio native Michael O’Grady (a guy who has said that seeing AC/DC play here in Cleveland made him want to pick up the guitar), will perform at the Aloft in the Flats. Managed by former American Idol
judge Randy Jackson, the group has a soul/pop sound reminiscent of Maroon 5. The concert is free.
