We are one of downtown Grand Rapids’ favorite hangouts. Located within the historic Heartside district, Rockwell Republic is a lively gastropub with made-from-scratch, seasonal cuisine as eclectic as the environment itself. This classic brand is known for its craft cocktails, elevated outdoor deck, exposed-brick walls, high ceilings, dark mahogany wood, and three-season screened-in-lounge. We are proud to have been voted Best Happy Hour in Grand Rapids and Best Bloody Mary 2 years running!
John Shea Trio
Monday night jazz
The John Shea Trio will be thrilled, excited, and delighted to play for you! They are the very best, most popular piano jazz trio in all of GR//West Michigan, and have been for the last 30 years. Everybody loves the John Shea Trio! John's smooth, swinging, elegant style is comparable to Erroll Garner, Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans, George Shearing, and ,of course, Duke Ellington. Upright bassists Rob Hartman and Jordan Richards are total professionals, sounding like Ray Brown, Paul Chambers, Oscar Pettiford, and NHOP Pedersen. Drummer Fred Knapp is the softest, swingingest player in the whole area, and one heck of a singer. He sings like Chet Baker. The John Shea Trio playing every Monday night at Rockwell Republic.
