DETROIT PROUD: Scott Allen

“We all have real jobs now and do the ‘grown-up’ thing, but this is my way to break free from that – we just love music.” You may remember the name Scott Allen from the band Thunderbirds Are Now! – the Metro Detroit band that made a name for themselves in the early 2000s, signing with French Kiss Records and touring throughout Europe, America, and parts of Australia at a very young age.

Hollywood Movies – Michigan Made

Michigan might not have the infamous Hollywood sign, but we have had some impressive Hollywood movies filmed here…and with good reason, too. Firstly, there is Detroit, with a gritty, industrial vibe, Gothic-looking churches, a crystal-clear view of Canada over the river, The Detroit People Mover, and a unique skyline backdrop. Michigan also boasts the history-rich college town of Ann Arbor, white sandy beaches of Lake Michigan along the west side of the state, and a little island right at the tip of the mitten that we like to call Mackinac. With that remarkable list of locations, it’s no wonder why more and more movies are being filmed here.
