Crowned “Detroit’s Queen of the Blues” in 2015, Thornetta Davis, a multi-talented international singer/songwriter from Detroit, ia the winner of over 30 Detroit music awards. She first gained attention in 1987 when she became back up singer for the Detroit soul band “Lamont Zodiac and The Love Signs.” Shortly after, the lead singer left the band and the name changed to “The Chisel Brothers featuring Thornetta Davis.” In 1996, Thornetta recorded her first solo album “Sunday Morning Music” on the Seattle based label “Sub Pop” which received a rave revue in the national Entertainment Weekly magazine. Her song “Cry” from that album was featured on the HBO hit “The Sopranos”. Thornetta has opened for legendary blues and R&B greats such as Ray Charles, Gladys Knight, Smokey Robinson, Etta James, Buddy Guy, Koko Taylor, Junior Wells, Lonnie Brooks, Johnnie Johnson and many more…her history is extensive and her performances are memorable… and Noel Night would not be the same without her.

HISTORY

The Detroit International Jazz Festival was founded in 1980 by Robert McCabe and the Detroit Renaissance.
Along with the Detroit Grand Prix and the International Freedom Festival, the Festival was intended to bring people into the city and to provide all segments of the population with world-class entertainment.From 1980 to 1991, the Festival flourished through a partnership with the highly regarded international jazz festival in Montreux, Switzerland.
In 1991, the Festival merged with Detroit’s Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts, where it resided until September 2005.In March 2005, Detroit philanthropist and Mack Avenue Records Chairman Gretchen Valade emerged as a major sponsor of the Festival.
With additional support from the Knight Foundation, the Festival expanded in all aspects.
Its new footprint, covering three blocks, provided two additional stages and more space for food vendors and other activities.

- Detroit Jazz Festival - 2017 - Map -

Looking to attract new audiences to jazz and the Festival, in 2011, jazz musician Chris Collins was appointed as artistic director and has since taken on the role of president of the Detroit Jazz Festival Foundation.
With Collins’ vision and the support of the Detroit Jazz Festival Foundation Board of Directors – led by Chair Gretchen Valade – the Foundation has continued to integrate new and exciting artistic elements and opportunities into the signature event, in addition to year-round programming.

- Detroit Jazz Festival - 2017 - Schedule Page 01 -

- Detroit Jazz Festival - 2017 - Schedule Page 02-

The Detroit Jazz Festival is now managed and produced by the Detroit International Jazz Festival Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed in 2006.
Through the generosity of Detroit philanthropist and Mack Avenue Records Chairman Gretchen Valade, the Foundation also established a significant endowment to support Festival operations.
The staff and advisory committee continuously work to raise the balance of operating costs through corporate partnerships, contributions and earned-income opportunities.

 - Detroit Jazz Festival - Img-PNG-xPlr-J-DJF-Bnr-B02-17I-

For nearly 40 years, the Detroit Jazz Festival Foundation has celebrated Detroit’s rich history of jazz music by providing year-round concerts and educational programming, and of course, organizing the world’s largest free jazz festival over Labor Day weekend.

- Detroit Jazz Festival - Logo Image -

With the support of corporate sponsors, philanthropic organizations, individual donors and volunteers, the Detroit Jazz Festival is free to music fans looking to revel in the artistry and improvisation of jazz legends, rising stars, legacy and homecoming artists.
Each year’s lineup of more than 60 performances spanning multiple stages, as well as spontaneous late-night jam sessions, offers something for everyone.

Year-round educational programming creates one-of-a-kind opportunities for regional students and aspiring musicians to help them achieve artistic excellence, while  concerts celebrate the works of students and mentors, in addition to local and national artists.

History of Labor Day Festival,
Hamtramck

37 years of fun

Hamtramck City Festival was first proposed in 1980.

The Dodge Main factory had just closed.

Then-Mayor Robert Kozaren, with the help of a group of dedicated citizens, conceived having a huge city festival that would  boost the spirits of the residents, and show  that Hamtramck  could smile in the face of a crisis.

The first festival was planned for late September.

From the start it was a huge success, with over 100,00 people attending.
People from across the area came to the festival
to enjoy the music, food, crafts and all manner of fun.

The festival was moved up to Labor Day to take advantage of the better weather and longer holiday weekend.

Hamtramck History

Founded in the wake of the American Revolution, Hamtramck remained largely unknown for more than 100 years as a dusty farming community on the edge of Detroit, Michigan.
In 1910, the town took a new direction with the opening of John and Horace Dodge’s auto factory.
By 1930, it had a population of 56,000 –
one of the most densely populated cities in the United States.

Polish immigrants made up the majority of this  population.
After centuries of repression by the Russians, Prussians, Austrians, and Germans, the Polish immigrants hungered for democracy. .
By 1922,  Hamtramck  incorporated as a city, the Poles were the controlling influence,
Even as the sounds of heavy industry faded,  Hamtramck maintained its persona as an immigrant community.
these days Arabs, Bangladeshis, Bosnians, Serbians, find the city an attractive place to settle.

Laith Al-Saadi –

In 2016, Laith Al-Saadi won America’s hearts and a spot in the finale of NBC’s “The Voice.”
Now he’s poised to bring his authentic blend of blues, soul and classic rock to audiences around the nation and the world.
Laith Al-Saadi was  honed at the University of Michigan school of music in his hometown of Ann Arbor, and on stages across the country working with legends like

Taj Mahal,
Luther Allison,
Buddy Guy,
Son Seals,
Gregg Allman
B.B. King.

Audiences have , propelled Al-Saadi’s most recent release, “REAL” to the top of the blues chart for five weeks and the top 20 album chart for two weeks.
Laith also had four singles in the top ten iTunes singles charts, and his albums
“In The Round”
“Long Time Coming”
spent time at the top of the rock and album charts.
Guitar World Magazine has called Laith Al-Saadi a cross between “Danny Gatton and Buddy Guy at their best,”
Guitar Center crowned him one of the top four blues guitarists in the United States.
?University of Michigan Graduate,
Degree in Jazz Guitar and Bass.
?Phillip-Michael Scales
Phillip-Michael Scales (Formerly Briar Rabbit) is a gifted songwriter who happens to be the nephew of BB King.
His sound fits between folk and soul; demonstrating his knack for thoughtful, catchy melodies.
In 2013, he won an International Songwriting Award.
Along with his gift for writing critically acclaimed songs
(Huffington Post, Chicago Tribune, American Songwriter)
comes his ability to captivate his audience in a live setting.
Armed only with a guitar, Briar Rabbit uses his strong, soulful tenor, and quick wit to deliver both a musically and emotionally dynamic performance.
“There’s something so great about earning a crowds trust, leading them through an emotional journey and coming out the other side together.”
Briar Rabbit has spent time all over.
He was born in Metro-Detroit, moved to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music, spent four years in Chicago, and settled in Los Angeles.
He is no stranger to touring and has been on the road for the better part of five years opening for such acts as

Guster,
David Cook,
Crystal Bowersox,
Tyler Hilton,
Jon McLaughlin,
Cory Brannan
Kate Voegele.

His music has taken him all the way to the Middle East, as well as festivals across the US and Canada.

L P –

Part Feist and part Joan Jett, powerful, genre-defying, Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter LP (Laura Pergolizzi) was raised in New York on a steady diet of

Joni Mitchell,
the Doors,
the Pretenders,
Nirvana,
Jeff Buckley.

She spent her formative years honing her craft in other bands before releasing her 2001 solo album, Heart-Shaped Scar (produced by David Lowery [Camper Van Beethoven, Cracker]) .
She began to hit her stride in 2004 with her second outing,
Suburban Sprawl & Alcohol,
Her 2006 appearance at the South by Southwest Music Conference  resulted in a deal with Island.
With Island, Pergolizzi began writing songs for other artists, including

Heidi Montag,
Rihanna,
Christina Aguilera.

A 2011 Citibank television commercial, which featured excerpts from LP‘s “Into the Wild,” gained Pergolizzi a huge fan base.
Her Warner Bros. debut EP,
Into the Wild: Live at Eastwest Studios, appeared in April 2012
Her full-length debut album,  Forever for Now, saw release in 2014.
In 2016, LP issued her  fourth studio long-player, Lost on You, via Vagrant Records.
The album’s opening track, “Muddy Waters,” appeared during the taut closing scene of the season four finale of Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black. (AllMusic.com)

June 15 –
TUXEDO –

Before he moved west and became a retro-soul dreamboat, lovers of roller skate disco and electro-funk in his hometown of Ann Arbor, Michigan knew Mayer Hawthorne as DJ Haircut, and his mixtape Shoot the Duck, Vol. 1 was a prized possession.
The disco, post-disco, and boogie tracks on that mix provide the inspiration for Tuxedo, a band formed by Hawthorne and Jake One, a fellow lover of those sweet sounds.
The two had exchanged similarly smooth and funky disco mixtapes in 2006, then years later decided to make their own version.
The duo proves to be masterful at re-creating the feel of the moment in the early ’80s . The duo conjures up visceral memories of the finest artists of the era,
From the drum machines to the synth settings, everything is just right.

“Lost Lover” is pure Gap Band swagger,
“The Right Time” sounds like Billy Ocean getting AM radio funky,
“Two Wrongs” is a lovely quiet storm ballad with a perfect guitar solo.

From beginning to end, the album is a happily reverent trip back to a time that’s too often ignored by both disco and funk fans.
Tuxedo is a fine display of the duo’s love for the electric funk disco sound, and their immense skill at re-creating it. (allmusic.com)

The Accidentals –

Billboard’s Breakout Band at SXSW 2015,
Huffington Post’s Sweet Sixteen of 2016,
Yahoo Music’s Top Ten Bands to Watch 2017…

From 2012-2014, The Accidentals recorded three original albums, were guest artists on fifteen others, scored two films, and landed song placements in commercials, documentaries, and music compilations while playing over seven hundred live shows. THEN they graduated high school.
After graduation from world-renowned Interlochen Arts Academy, The Accidentals added multi-instrumentalist-singer-songwriter, Michael Dause, as their touring/studio drummer and opened for musical greats such as;

Andrew Bird,
Sixto Rodriguez (Sugar Man),
Brandi Carlile,
Dar Williams,
Ladysmith Black Mambazo,
Ben Sollee,
Rusted Root,
The Wailers,
Keller Williams,
Arlo Guthrie,
Martin Sexton,
Joan Baez,

and more.
In 2015, they scored original pieces for a 72-piece orchestra, an opera-dance project with Son Lux, and a smaller 30-piece string ensemble while touring the US extensively.
In June of 2016, they released a brand new, self-produced EP called Parking Lot, of which the single, “Michigan and Again,” went viral.
They’re kicking off 2017 as major label artists, having signed a record deal with Sony Masterworks to release a full-length album in the second quarter of the year.

June 29 –
Theo Katzman –

If you’ve heard the name Theo Katzman recently, you probably know him as the singing drummer and guitarist in the funk band Vulfpeck.
With his 2017 release, Heartbreak Hits, Katzman returns to his roots as a rock and roll inspired singer/songwriter.
A 10-song collection of musings on loss and letdown, Heartbreak Hits blends personal vulnerability with imaginative songcraft, yielding an album that’s somehow a living dichotomy of tragic/comedic, serious/satirical, over-the-top/subtle, and healing/hurting.  Katzman  writes “songs to soothe your post-Y2K pop culture hangover.”

Michigan Rattlers –

Upholding a time-honored songwriting tradition, Michigan Rattlers recount human stories through a soundtrack of Americana punctuated by countrified rock’n’roll and folk.
The subjects of their 2016 self-titled debut EP practically live and breathe between Graham Young’s rustling guitar and Adam Reed’s percussive upright bass.
Born in Petoskey, MI and based in Los Angeles, the duo’s music plays out like a film.  “All of my favorite songs tell stories,” says Graham.
Lifelong friends Graham and Adam began writing music and performing together in their Northern Michigan high school.
Residing in a quiet tourist town of 6,000 located on the banks of Lake Michigan, the pair regularly played every bar, cafe, and stage in town, developing an inimitable musical chemistry informed by the likes of

AC/DC,
Chet Atkins,
Eric Clapton,
Creedence Clearwater Revival,

July 13 –
Tim Reynolds Trio  / TR3 –

Virtuoso guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer, Tim Reynolds formed the first incarnation of TR3 in 1984, playing a wild hybrid of psychedelicized rock, funk, and prog.
The trio featured a constantly revolving cast of musicians other than its guitarist and front man.
After moving to North Carolina’s Outer Banks in the middle aughts, Reynolds met bassist Mick Vaughn and drummer Dan Martier.
Playing and touring together, they eventually gelled into the most visible — and constant — incarnation of TR3.
Their mix of Reynolds‘ quirky originals and unusual versions of cover songs by

James Brown,
Led Zeppelin,
King Crimson,

and others added breadth and depth to their stage shows.
In early 2014, TR3 signed to ATO Records, and in August the pre-release single “All Over the Place” appeared.
The sophomore studio full-length Like Some Kind of Alien Invasion appeared in October of that year.

NOMO –

NOMO was conceived in 2003 when University of Michigan jazz studies graduate, multi-instrumentalist (tenor sax, keyboards, electric mbiri) Elliot Bergman, and some of his acquaintances began jamming at an Ann Arbor, MI, house where many of them lived. This led to the eventual formation of the group, which recorded its self-titled EP on Ypsilanti Records that same year – after producer Warn Defever dared Bergman to bring as many people as he could to the studio.
In 2004 the band (which, with album and live appearances combined, has had over 60 contributors) issued a full-length record of the same name.
NOMO‘s mix of African beats, avant-garde jazz, and funk caught the attention of California’s Ubiquity Records, who soon signed them.
The founding members of NOMO also currently play in Wild Belle.

The Record Company –

The Record Company write and play raw, sincere rock n’ roll.
Influenced by the rough honesty of their heroes–bluesmen like John Lee Hooker, early punk bands like The Stooges, and rock greats like The Rolling Stones–their sound incorporates slide guitar, distorted bass, a garage-sale Ludwig drum kit and the heartland-hued voice of Chris Vos, who grew up on a Wisconsin dairy farm.
The three-man group started in late 2011, hanging up some old mics and recording live in the bass player’s living room in Los Feliz, CA.
The Record Company have since played concert halls across North America, opening for acts as diverse as

B.B. King,
Social Distortion,
Buddy Guy,
Grace Potter,
and Trombone Shorty.

The band toured Europe supporting Blackberry Smoke in Oct-Nov 2015, and their first full-length album is came out on Concord Records on February 12, 2016.

May Erlwine & The Motivations –

Some people might call May Erlewine “Michigan’s darling songbird”, but her songs have traveled far beyond her home state.
One of the most prolific and passionate songwriters of her generation, May’s music has touched the hearts of people all over the world.
Her words have held solace for weary hearts, offered a light in the darkness and held a lot of space for the pain and joy of being alive in these times.
Raised in a family rich with art and music, May began writing songs and playing them for the people at a very young age.
Her journeys have taken her all over the world, from street corners to renowned stages, May has performed for all walks of life.
In her travels, Erlewine came to know the land and the pulse of the people.
Her songs show a very real connection and concern with everyday folk.
May pulls from a wide variety of sounds and influences to create her unique musical landscape.
You’ll hear traditional folk roots, old time country swing, soul, and rock and roll, but mostly, she’s inspired by the hearts of the people and the one in her chest.
This music is about feeling and it’s about telling life’s stories.

Stellars / Jacob Sigman –

The Stellars

The Stellars are an Ann Arbor-based rock band that bring a refreshing brand of rock’n’roll that harkens back to the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s, while retaining a unique modern sound.
Born and raised in the Mid West, Singer/Songwriter/Multi-Instrumentalist Jacob Sigman combines influences of Motown, Soul, and Contemporary Pop music to create something both new and familiar.

Joshua Davis –

Michigan’s Joshua Davis was raised in the folk tradition: the music, the social movements, the land.
He writes songs that blend the roots of American music with gritty rock n’ roll and vintage soul.
Performing Songwriter Magazine called the result, “Some of the liveliest and most rocking roots music around.
For over 15 years Joshua has made his living sharing his songs, stories and knowledge across the US and Canada at festivals, concert halls, coffeehouses and dives – as a solo act, front man for roots ensemble “Steppin’ In It”, classic swing band “Shout Sister Shout”, songwriter showcase band “The Starlight Six” and frequently as a workshop facilitator, presenter or instructor.

         Joe Hertler & The Rainbow Seekers –

Joe Hertler & The Rainbow Seekers will make a sprightly young groove doctor out of anyone.
With spectacular energy pulsating from every member of the band, the Rainbow Seekers could illuminate the very chambers of Heaven.
Lead singer Joe Hertler splashes through lyrical puddles of golden rain, leaving his audience wearing flowery headdresses and bubbling smiles.
A ride on the Rainbow will take you across the mountains of Motown, through the fjords of folk, over the archipelagos of Americana, and—at last—into a funky firth, where only the fiercest of friendships can be found.
“The live show is the purpose of the band.
This is why we make music.
Playing music is a symbiotic process, and without a crowd it is just a bunch of guys jamming,” says Hertler.
“We believe that performance is not a High Art operation, and that you should do anything you can to ensure that the crowd is having a good time.
From piñatas to confetti, to fog, to flowers, to drum solos, to strobe lights, to Thor, to sword battles—literally anything goes.”
