Detroit is filled with many different types of musicians. We have traditional rockers, garage rockers, experimental electronic, punk rock, dance-pop, techno…the list can go on and on. One thing that remains true though, is the passion behind every musician and band – they put their whole hearts into their music, and that’s what sets Detroit musicians apart from many other cities.
