Area Music Talent
concert boasts music by homegrown Detroit bands Dollah Jones, The
Science Fair and Woodward
-- Garden Court Condominiums will host a concert in the parking
lot featuring three of Detroit’s premier up-and-coming bands
Saturday, September 15, 2007 from noon to 6 p.m. Garden Court Condominiums
is located at 2900 E. Jefferson at Jos. Campau in Detroit. There
is no cost to attend the concert. Performers include Dollah Jones,
The Science Fair and Woodward.
Take Ludacris, Ti, 50
Cent and Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, melt them together and you get the
new hip hop sensation—Dollah Jones. Jones has been writing
and performing since 1998 and is part of the Embracing Our Community
& Saving Our Children Tour that travels to schools across the
country and has raised over 70,000 pounds of can-goods for the homeless.
The future of hip-hop, his new album entitled A Dollah and a Dream
is expected in early 2008.
A turn of the century
mansion in Detroit’s Boston-Edison district served as the
inspiration for The Science Fair—a group that produces tunes
that cross all musical genres to create a cool soul-funk-jazz-groove
rock sound. Self described as “three gentlemen with a healthy
appetite for creative dissonance” band members Chris Heine
(Guitar/Vox), Earl 'elo' Orr (Drums) and Chris Young (Bass) had
their musical stylings influenced by a diverse crowd including the
likes of Jimi Hendrix, Squarepusher, Miles Davis, Pat Metheny, Kid
606, Jaco Pastorius, The Mars Volta, John Coltrane, The Police,
Parliment Funkadelic, Miles Davis, Marcus Miller, Level 42 and The
City of Detroit.
Characterized by their
signature vocal harmonies and progressive pop/rock melodies, Woodward
offers listeners a distinct and fresh sound in comparison to contemporary
rock acts. Highlighted by the alluring vocal exchange of John-Paul
Zammit (guitar/vox) and Dan Karmel (bass/vox), the backbone of Woodward’s
overall energy is driven by the drumming vigor of Dave Tilove, combining
an influence of vintage pop with a modern rock edge. Accentuated
by the predominantly synth-driven keyboard play of Steve Hull, Woodward
integrates a fresh perspective on styles reminiscent of classic
pop and rock.
Having performed at such
nationally renowned venues as Saint Andrew’s Hall in Detroit
and the Knitting Factory in New York City, Woodward has opened for
Fueled By Ramen recording artist The Hush Sound, as well as Brian
Vander Ark of The Verve Pipe. Currently, Woodward is touring independently
in support of their first full length commercial release …But
Your Kids Are Gonna Love It.
The concert will be held
in the Garden Court Condominiums parking lot, weather permitting.
Tours of Garden Court Condominiums will also be available during
the event. All attendees must register at the sales office and receive
an admission bracelet prior to entering the concert venue. ID required.
