The Ficks is in

Stevensville resident Mark Ficks will perform his first show at The Livery on Friday night in a concert that will include members of The Significant Others and Ten Minute Warm-Up.

BENTON HARBOR - Mark Ficks was itching to play The Livery when he spotted a Facebook post about the venue's Monday night open stage.

"I called up my buddy Dennis (Varo) and said, 'What are you doing tonight? Let's go play," Ficks says. "So we went down there on a whim and played three songs."
