You can’t miss out!
Performers: Memphis Hawk
Location: Ottava Via
The music of Memphis Hawk is by and far a product of years digesting U2, INXS, Leonard Cohen, Bjork, Leo Tolstoy, Jesus, Mark Danielewski, Chris Isaak, Sarah McLaughlan, Joshua Tillman, Brandi Carlile, Don DeLillo, and Daniel Lanois, then spitting out the product of these sources when mixed, merged, and agitated.
Performers: The Expedition Quartet
Location: Gaelic League
Performers: Crimson Eyed Orchestra
Location: Motor City Wine
Crimson Eyed Orchestra (or CEO, because who has time for long words?) aren’t even an Orchestra at all, but are a Rock Trio formed in the Detroit Underground In 2017.
All three band members are Michigan Natives: Robert Duncan on Guitar and Vocals, Jess Zacharski on Drums, and Thomas Hyatt is ‘The Bassist.’
CEO sounds big. Their tunes are catchy, the groove is groovy, but intense interplay between the melodies and rhythms in powerful songs is their bread and butter. They have been influenced by such legends as the Faces, Cream, Frank Zappa, The Doors, and Van Halen, to name a few.
Crimson a Eyed Orchestra’s latest single ‘On the Loose’ was released worldwide in July 2022 on all major streaming platforms.
