    Last year, more than 1500 people attended the first Party on the Pavers event in Baroda, Michigan. This year, it looks like they'll easily match that. Partly because of all the great food and adult beverages, but also because of the music that will be performed by Alligator Blackbird, Jared Knox and Crawpuppies. Tina Boehm gives us a preview.
