Greetings from the desk of Vince Paul

President and Artistic Director

Well folks, that's a wrap on Detroit Music Weekend!

We are over the moon about all of the incredible performances, and the tens of thousands of people who joined us to share four incredible days in Detroit. Together we soaked up the sights and sounds of Detroit's incredible artistry, and looked forward to the moment when The Queen of Soul would take the stage and show us all over again what it means to be a superstar for the ages. And wow, did she ever! It was special beyond words and we thank you all for being a part of it. (And yes, we want to talk about next year as soon as we can catch a breath...)

Main stage action wraps up with a performance by Complexions Contemporary Ballet on Saturday June 17th. Two incredible works on the program including Star Dust -- set to the music of David Bowie and commissioned by Music Hall. Critics and audiences are BOTH enthralled with it (how often does that happen?) and we're lucky to have it back on our stage again. No extra charge for the extreme feelings of euphoria that come with this show.

Our Jazz Cafe offers a cool refuge throughout the summer and we can't say for sure but you might even bump into some of the incredible Detroit artists who made Detroit Music Weekend well, ... Detroit.

Our social channels always have the latest and greatest: ….on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and Detroit Music Weekend official website!.

As always, "I'll see you downtown"
