'Rockin The Garden 2007' Showcases Area Music Talent

Free concert boasts music by homegrown Detroit bands Dollah Jones, The Science Fair and Woodward

DETROIT -- 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. 21 years and over please. Registration for both the concert and property tours is recommended and can be made by calling 313-259-2500.
