 Go Back In Time At The Todd's Spring Reunion Night

SATURDAY, APRIL 3 - Travel back in time to the decade of decadence- the‘80s-this holiday season to revisit a Detroit dance club that was the epitome of ‘80s glory. Todd’s, formally known as Todd’s Sway Lounge, was a gay nightclub on Detroit’s far eastside that was on the cutting edge of the new wave of eighties music and lifestyle.

Detroit club impresario- Stirling, first approached the owners of the venue in 1983 and convinced them to try out a dance music night on Monday evenings to cater to a growing subculture of club kids. The owners welcomed this idea, and a new dance party, "Modern Dance Mondays" was launched. Stirling hired the eclectic DJ Charles English to spin the latest in dance music, Euro-pop, new wave and even some punk classics and funk gems thrown into the explosive mix of music that had the patrons up and dancing the night away. When Monday nights became thee popular weekly destination, they expanded to Thursday nights as well.

 Local drummer featured in Modern Drummer Magazine
jupo writes

Eric Fischer of Radar Pilot does Buddy RichDetroit native drummer, Eric Fischer, has a page feature on him in the April edition of Modern Drummer Magazine.  Eric earned this great achievment by creating a very unique tribute/ instructional video that features the jazz great, drummer Buddy Rich.  The videos are now available for viewing on the home page of Modern Drummer Magazine (www.moderndrummer.com).

Eric has been playing around the Detroit area for many years in the prog rock band Space Nelson, and more recently has also been performing in Radar Pilot.  His Buddy Rich video has earned him accolades from many of the top drummers in the world including Charlie Watts and Dennis Chambers, and he is working on a similar  project for Carl Palmer.

 Michiganbands.com Welcomes SoulScholar

SoulScholar is our latest band link addition to the Original Artiststs /  Hard Rock category - and a hard rock band that claims to be from that vague city with fuzzy boundaries known as "Metro Detroit".  You might conclude from that decision that 1) Their real home town just doesn't rock.  2) They're hearts are really with the "D", or 3) It doesn't really matter since any given band typically has members that cross city, county and sometimes even state lines and forcing them to claim any particular one as "home" is just retarded.  Well, it doesn't take a SoulScholar to figure out I'm just trying to fill some space here, so click "read more" below for all the pertinent links!

 New Video: Eddie Leighton is all broke up about the Michigan economy

All Broke Up by Eddie LeightonEddie Leighton (of the Eddie Leighton Project) has posted a new video you'll want to check out, particularly if you've suffered any of the ill effects of the Michigan economy as of late.  "I'm Broke Up" finds Eddie in unfamiliar waters, struggling to find a job or economic opportunity of any kind.  "I've been up and down / I've been all over town / through thick and thin / and no one will help me out / I'm not used to this abuse / because I've never been here before...".  He does his best to stay optimistic, and patriotic (even stating the Pledge Of Allegiance) but pulls no punches in laying the blame at the feet of the fat cats who sold us out.  You'll want to check this one out.  Click Here to see "I'm Broke Up".

Hello fellow band heads,

For the last year we've been working on a new website for the Michigan music community. In a nutshell it's a social media site like Myspace or Facebook. The primary purpose is to bring Michigan fans and artists together in one spot.  The site allows artists to post music and media. Friends and Fans can join too and network with the community. Indie artists can upload their music and videos and even sell songs like Itunes and SnoCap if they choose. Cover bands are encouraged to sign up too.

You can check out the site and signup for a profile here:

 Flipping the Pig albums on iTunes
fthep writes

Flipping The Pig On iTunesThe Flipping The Pig albums My Heroic Cadences (2008) and You Get The Idea (2007) have just been released on iTunes (both albums can be purchased for the price of one).

21 tracks total, there's a playfulness characteristic of this musical chameleon's grab bag of pop/rock tricks. Whatever you're listening to at the moment, you can be sure that something else lurks around the corner.

"Well, I've never planned a fundraiser before, but I'm giving it my best (along with the help of the entire Alcini Family & some incredible friends - many thanks!!) - & with very little time. Please see the attached flyer advertising the fundraiser I am planning for my friend Lisa Medina. Please read her story - it is both heartbreaking & uplifting. I hope many of you can come - she is a worthy cause! And hey - it will be fun!! Every day, new things are added to the event, but this is what I have up to this point. "
