Experience the natural beauty of Mackinac Island from the water.

Other sights include Round Island lighthouse, cruising under the Mackinac Bridge and the north side of Mackinac Island.
Don't miss this one! Music by Pete Kehoe & Michelle Chenard.
Pete is a vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter & award-winning composer. His acoustics cover styles from folk to funk, rock and pop to blues. He can often be found performing at Michigan’s most iconic bar, the Pink Pony and has a loyal following.
According to Mr. Kehoe, he’s got decent chops on bass (upright and electric), harmonica, mandolin (OK...he’s no Bill Monroe), and french horn (no kidding). Pete regularly performs a solo acoustic act at some of the biggest resorts in the midwest, playing a mix of clever, off-the-beaten-path covers and originals. He's played with and/or opened for such diverse artists as CeCe Peniston, Humble Pie, The Romantics, Rick Derringer, Edwin McCain, Aaron Lewis (Staind), Hootie & The Blowfish, Colbie Caillat and more. And we are excited to have him.
Michelle Chenard is a veteran singer/songwriter who has been continually voted a favorite in Northern Michigan as Best Solo Performer, Best of the Best and more in Northern Express, Northern Michigan’s largest newsweekly. She released her first music video, Blade with critical acclaim and to a packed house at City Park Grill, a well known music venue in Petoskey, Michigan in the spring of 2012. 2012 was a good year for Michelle as she scored a Michigan Emmy® Award for musical score on the TV documentary Sacrifice and Honor: A Tribute to our Northern Michigan Veterans. She continually performs hundreds of shows across the state each year. In addition to her tireless schedule, Michelle founded Mackinac Island Songwriters Workshop with her brother from another mother Pete Kehoe, has been writing and recording with country artist Julianne Ankley and performing with her band, Blood Sisters.
Singing and playing guitar since she was seven years old, it’s no surprise that Chenard has garnered such respect and accolades. Her acoustic performances have built her a strong following throughout the Upper Midwest. From Michigan’s unspoiled Upper Peninsula down the coast of Lake Michigan and back, it is her powerful vocals, accomplished guitar work and award winning songwriting that continues to captivate.
