Reetz on the Beetz – Live at Laughing Sun


Monday, June 14th at Laughing Sun Brewery in Bismarck, ND,  I am hosting a variety music show at 8pm. Many musicians who have collaborated with me before will be present for an amalgamation of musical awesomeness. Some of my favorite musicians in the world will be there to rock the house. Dave Martell, Joe Johnson, Brandon Clayson, Nolyn Falcon, Roger Nordquist, and Chad Falcon as well as others will be rocking the best brewery in Dakota! This will be a rare chance to see musical creation in the raw, off the cuff, and on the fringe. Free admission. Photo by Shane Reetz

Thunder Rock Cove

I hiked to Thunder Rock Cove this weekend which overlooks Secret Beach to the north and Natural Bridges to the south. The formations cause the waves to break perpendicular to the shore, coming from the north and south causing two waves to take each other on head to head.  After shooting some pics and soaking up the sun, two mountain goats appeared on the cliffs, a momma and a baby. I had to zoom in all the way, so the pics aren’t amazing, but a rare sight indeed.
