 MB Welcomes Backwoods Thunder
The first time I heard the song "International Harvester" on a Lansing-area country station I thought it was a commercial for farm combines. Seriously. But what sounds like some crass product placement designed to compel casual listeners to buy gigantic agricultural equipment is actually an extremely popular song by Craig Morgan - and one that's covered very competently by our latest band-link submission in the cover bands / classic rock and country categories, Backwoods Thunder (great name, eh?).  This west Michigan-based band is quickly gaining popularity and is looking for a multi-instrumentalist with vocals to make their quartet a quintet.  The gigs are piling up and the band's even toying with the idea of writing originals.  So until they join our original artists category, check out Backwoods Thunder by clicking "read more" below.

 Michiganbands Welcomes Severance
After devoting six years to the female-fronted modern rock band Avenue, a popular act that enjoyed coverage by major media outlets in Michigan, guitarist/songwriter Todd Schoeneman decided it was time to put some passion back into his music and explore stylistic and emotional avenues he wasn't able to before. To aid him in the new venture, Shoeneman recruited Mark Pilotto on lead vocals, Jeff Korner on bass and Justin Sowers on drums.  The band would be called Severance (as in severing ties with the past) and his goals would be nothing less than ambitious.  "We want to be the best band in Detroit. We want people to remember us when we finish a set,"  Schoeneman wrote in his band's MySpace bio.  Severance is currently in the studio finishing up their debut release, but have a benefit show planned for May and will be partcipating in Emergenza in June.  Click "read more" below for links.

 MB Welcomes Scott Cooley, Indecision, Our Fate In Hell & Zero Down
Well, the band links are piling up which means it must be time to get some work done.  But instead of giving each of these fine, homegrown acts their own well-deserved space on Michiganbands.com, I'm going to be lazy and lump them all together under this one article heading ( send your complaints to Dept. Of Local Music Volunteers, c/o someone who still gives a shit). So click "read more" below and let me introduce to you the cavemanic musical stylings of Scott Cooley, the original and cover-band versions of Indecision, the alcohol & hate-fueled screams of Our Fate In Hell, and finally we'll explore Zero Down's  tenuous connection to Mitch Ryder via the mysterious "Rico".

 Jamie McCarthy Appears in Episode 8 of Ced~N~Teri
faith148 writes

Transplanted local rocker Jamie McCarthy, son of the late WJR radio legend J.P. McCarthy, will appear in episode 8 of the new video series Ced N Teri that will debut at The Park Bar on Sunday, May 4th.  Doors at 8pm.
The hilarious new series created by Mikey Brown, is redefining what it means to be a “sit” com. Ced N Teri is a politically-incorrect comedy about two, full-time couch potatoes and their cat.  Shot locally at the Planet Ant Theatre in Hamtramck, Ced N Teri is quickly finding an audience on the mini screen at You Tube.  The series is a little bit Clerks and 100 percent Hamtramck - beer, weed, pizza, TV, garage rock and music from Detroit bands in every episode.

 Terry Lee Bolton Announces New Release, Reviews CRS 39
shotgunbolton writes

I'll be releasing a new CD titled You Can't Have It  on May 8th, 2008. It is the follow up to  "American Man" which is still available at Wal*Mart & WalMart.com. You Can't Have It includes 13 new songs and it is a slight departure from American Man. The record still holds strong to my  country & southern rock roots but is more guitar heavy and adds a dose of blues and Detroit Soul thrown in for good measure. Release date is set for May 27th on my label, MRC Records Nashville.
