 DMA 2011 Voting Underway

Detroit Music Awards 2011As you probably know by now, The 2011 Detroit Music Awards voting phase is well under way and for the past couple of weeks we've been posting video and music links from the ballot to our Facebook page. This helps faciliatate the process for ourselves as much as for our friends.   We never seem to get a concentrated dose of the nominated local music before the ballot is sitting in front of us so I'm glad we started early. So skip on over to our facebook page, have a listen to some of the nominees and register (if you're not already) and vote for your favorites at: http://www.detroitmusicawards.net.  The show is slated for April 15th at The Fillmore. Buy tickets by clicking HERE.  Oh, and don't forget to check out the VitaminWater "People's Choice" player on the DMA's home page.

 Soul Divide
blanketstatement writes
Sould Divide

   SOUL DIVIDE is a high energy band based in southeast Michigan. The idea for the band was born into the hearts and minds of the brothers Matt and Pete Hamann, (guitar and bass) who had a vision to take their brand of music to a new level, to embrace the essence or soul of all kinds of music, utilizing pieces from every genre, and smash it all together to create Soul Divide. With the addition of sonic poet Austin Dunsen (vocals) and rhythm monster Bryce Harding, (drums) the group was complete, and the music soared higher than the brothers ever predicted. Between the 4 members they created an audacious new sound- It was rock, it was funk, it was hip hop, it was blues. It combines simple good old fashion foot stomping Detroit thrash with the added variety and complexity of all 4 members’ unique artistry and musical ability.

 Five Bands Rock the Michigan Theater, January 22
chcnetwork writes



With a wind chill factor registering almost 20 below it may have been one of the coldest nights in six years for the Jackson, Michigan area, but for the residents of south-central Michigan, particularly those who like hard and driving rock, the five bands that provided talent at the Michigan Theater tonight raised temps as they really cooked on stage.

This bill featuring Michigan bands Neon Escape, Lifeline Revolution, Under The Vine, Fifth Way, and the headlining Pop Evil was organized by Tim Corser, head of Kings of Rock Entertainment.

Corser, 28, has been promoting rock bands in and around the Jackson area for the past eight years. Last year during the depths of Michigan's deepest recession, at a time when even the biggest promoters were taking a hit, he promoted 30 bands on three stages at what was called Rockapalooza.

He is all too aware that roller coaster effect that the music business has experienced over the past couple of years and speaks with an authority on this matter perhaps belying his age. Despite this, he is intrepid rock devotee and is determined to produce the best shows for the dollar, something much needed and surely appreciated in the Jackson area.

 New Lordd Virgil Song Becomes Viral You Tube Hit
faith148 writes

Online viewers as far away as Japan have contributed to the more than 10,000 hits that are turning the video from local rocker Lordd Virgil’s new song Flint, Michigan into a viral You Tube hit (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4nAjAqaCnWw). 

The song is quickly resonating with locals as an anthem that speaks to the plight of Flint that combines a nostalgic sadness for what Flint has been, a quiet resignation to the state of Flint today and a fatalistic acceptance that, no matter what, Virgil too will someday die in his hometown as his friends and family have done before him.
 
“The support from the fans has been almost overwhelming and it’s amazing to hear the responses when people leave comments about the video,” said frontman Lordd Virgil. “For some people, it makes them sad, for others it makes them want to do something about the plight of Flint and, for others, it just makes them want to have a coney dog.”
 
The inspiration for the song came to Lordd Virgil when he attended the funeral for his musical mentor and local legend Gary Buckner in 2008. As Virgil followed in the funeral procession, he watched as the hearse drove down a street littered with dozens of huge potholes and heaving pieces of broken pavement.
