Friday, June 30, 2017 – Collision Six
Young. Fresh. Talented. These are the words used by past clients to describe this versatile fun band. They are growing their fan base in the Detroit area quickly, and are well-known in Lansing and throughout Southeastern Michigan. Collision Six is what happens when a group of creative musicians come together to create an engaging musical performance. They offer a dynamic experience that continues to build from one song to the next because they always feed off the audience.
Saturday, July 8, 2017 – The Invasion
The Invasion is Detroit’s premium British Invasion cover band. Bob, Ron, David and Donn were drawn together from a love of the music from the other side of the pond that came to us here in the 1960s. All 4 members of the band sing tight, well crafted harmonies. They have 4 true lead vocalists. Add to that expert instrumentation on era inspired gear, the best of the music of that magical decade and you have The Invasion’s formula for a good time.
This project has been a true joy for the boys who have had a shared love for this music but have never come together just for the idea of pursuing the music of the Beatles and those who followed. Add to that the fact that each of the guys have been playing professionally for years and are now having the time of their lives with this music, and I’m sure you’ll have a great time too!
Friday, July 14, 2017 – The Motown Experience
The Motown Experience is an all-star lineup of world class vocalists drawn from the ranks of the legendary groups that made many of these hits timeless classics. This dynamic vocal group is assembled from members of The Capitols (Cool Jerk), The Miracles (Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame and Hollywood Walk Of Fame Inductees) and from former members of The Temptations.
The show is jam-packed with impeccable harmonies, dazzling choreography, and those timeless Motown grooves that everyone knows and loves. You can choose to dance, sing along, or just sit back (if you can) and watch the show as they perform all of the greatest hits from the likes of The Temptations, The Miracles, The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, and Stevie Wonder. Every performance contains that unmistakable Motown stamp, including flashy suits, great singing and dancing, and a polished show that has set the bar for every vocal artist since the late 1950’s.
Friday, July 21, 2017 – The Madcat Midnight Blues Journey
Grammy Award winning Peter “Madcat” Ruth has established an international reputation through his exhilarating, riveting virtuosity on the harmonica. He is equally at home playing blues, folk, country, or rock and roll. The Madcat Midnight Blues Journey is an eclectic quartet fueled by the guitar and steel fireworks of Drew “Cap’n Midnight” Howard, and propelled by the mighty rhythm section of bassist Mark Schrock and drummer Michael Shimmin, and all conducted by harmonica wizard, Peter “Madcat” Ruth. A night to remember in Lexington, “The First Resort North”!
Friday, July 28, 2017 – Captured Detroit – Journey Tribute
Captured Detroit is the ultimate Journey Tribute band that faithfully recaptures the thrill that generations of Journey fans remember. They recreate and “recapture” Journey’s greatest hits that have withstood the test of time after all these years. Captured Detroit features five top metro-Detroit area professional musicians who perform all parts live—no tracks—no sequencers—100% live!. They come together bringing the highest level of musicianship – paying careful attention to recreate the songs, sounds, energy, and rich harmonies that made Journey known as one of the best rock and roll bands of all time.
Friday, August 4, 2017 – Devin Scillian and Arizona Son
Friday, August 11, 2017 – Taylor Tucky
Taylor Tucky features some of Detroit’s finest musicians and was formed to cover today’s country hits. Fronted by Nashville Recording artist Steve Nickells, the band offers driving grooves, great 3-part harmonies and diverse instruments like banjo and mandolin for a great full sound. They are excellent at replicating cover songs from modern country, classic country and southern rock favorites.
Friday, August 18, 2017 – Dave Bennett’s Rockin’ the 50’s
Dave Bennett doesn’t fit the mold. You may not find another clarinet virtuoso who occasionally breaks from his Swing Era repertoire to sing rock-a-billy hits while accompanying himself at the piano where he plays a mean barrelhouse boogie-woogie. If anyone can return the clarinet to its heyday, it’s Dave Bennett, who fuses serious jazz improvisation with a host of modern pop influences. A crowd favorite in Lexington for many years Dave is returning to our stage to wrap up the Music in the Park season in grand style!
