Summer time fun. Evenings filled with music, dance and merriment. People are always in a good mood, and seem to filled with energy and dance.

The Rockingbirds specialize in music from the 60s and 70s ... three-part harmonized dance tunes from the 15 years after the British Invasion. We play feel-good music. People go home happy, tired and remembering.

If you are out this summer in the Downriver Detroit area, check out The Rockingbirds at one of their shows. You will have a good time for sure!

Other Local Bands

If you enjoy live music, and your lucky enough to be in the Detroit metro area, then a must see is the Killer Flamingos a local Detroit area band.

Both the band and club have a relaxed atmosphere which is why the music always sounds so good.

Another must see band, is Fifty Amp Fuse they do a regular gigs all over the metro Detroit area, and are by far the best cover band I have seen.

Also a Downriver favorite and a personal favorite of ours is Blackberry Brandy.

All of these bands were "discovered" by us at a local Allen Park, MI club called Simons. A long, long time ago...

Thanks for playing the puzzles...
