Along with music composition and recording, Struwin has a deep fondness for performing live, and considers playing venues across the country both a primary goal for, and a benefit of, his musical career. He has toured heavily throughout the middle of the continent, from Michigan to Colorado, and earned himself the title of "Kalamazoo Acoustic Idol" in 2004. During that time, he shared the bill with The Doobie Brothers, Robert Bradley’s Black Water Surprise, and Greensky Bluegrass, and shared the stage with members of Umphrey’s Mcgee and The David Crosby Band.

The Isley Brothers began singing together as youngsters in the early 1950s and today are considered one of the most important and influential groups of the last half-century. Ronald, Rudolph, Kelly and Vernon started out as a gospel group, performing in churches and other venues throughout their hometown of Cincinnati. Though raised primarily on the sounds of gospel music, the family band went on to experiment and record under the genres of doo-wop, R&B, rock ‘n’ roll, soul, Motown, funk, quiet storm, disco, pop and hip-hop, all the while remaining true to their vision and voice. After leaving Cincinnati in 1957 for New York City, the group scored their first hit with the call-and-response classic “Shout” (now covered by countless bands across the country) and in 1962 reached true mainstream success with “Twist and Shout,” which became their first Top 40 hit on both the pop and R&B charts. At the end of the decade, their hit “It’s Your Thing” earned them the 1969 Grammy Award for Best R&B Vocal Performance.
The Isley Brothers’ career has seen dozens of #1 hits, both singles and albums; more than two dozen gold, platinum and multi-platinum singles and albums; countless awards; and the Brothers’ 1992 induction into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. What’s even more remarkable is how they’ve reinvented themselves with each passing year, thus consistently reaping a fresh crop of fans. Acknowledging their place in history, Ronald Isley says: “I knew Sam Cooke and Jackie Wilson and The Temptations. I knew their intimate thoughts on music, and I knew them as friends. The Isley Brothers are in a unique place now because we possess that repository of knowledge, and we carry it on through our new material.”
