This week’s Detroit Proud Playlist is another special edition – this time, featuring bands from Jack White’s ‘Sympathetic Sounds of Detroit’ compilation album! Check it out…
It’s common knowledge to Detroiters that our town is home to some of the world’s best musicians. We’re at the top of every major music trend – from Motown to techno to garage rock. Detroit musicians have influenced and entertained millions, and that list will only continue to grow – we thought we’d pay tribute to some of those who set the bar high.
Week after week we’re committed to searching, listening, and bringing you the best of what our city has to offer…in terms of music, that is. This week, in our playlist,we’ve brought in a few new names, sprinkled in some well-known favorites, and explored other tracks from local bands we’ve seen before.
Hey, hey, Detroit music lovers! Instead of digging deep into Detroit’s underground music scene, we thought we’d shine a light on all those that came before. You know, those big-time stars of the “D” that we have to thank for making Detroit one of the music staples of the world!
Welcome back to our second playlist in the new DETROIT PROUD running tradition. This week we have quite an eclectic set. We’ve combined our local talented bands and artists, and we’ve thrown in a few of the big names too.
Frank Woodman was born and raised in New Haven, Connecticut – but today, he calls himself “Detroit Proud.” Frank moved to Metro Detroit in 1976 with his mother. He remembers getting off the train at the glorious Michigan Central train station in Corktown waiting for his grandmother to pick them up. “I always try to imagine the hustle and bustle of travelers back in the day,” says Frank.
