Eliza Neals In The Studio

Detroit's own blues queen Eliza Neals is back home cutting some new tracks for an upcoming release. Neals, who currently resides in New York City, has spent the majority of her career cutting her teeth within Detroit's legendary music scene, rocking her unique blend of rockin' rythym & blues throughout the city. "There is no place like home" says Detroit rockin' blues singer Eliza Neals, who together with the guidance of Detroit super producer, Tino Gross, and Motown songwriting godfather Barrett Strong, is currently writing and recording a Bluesy-Motown-Rock-Soul Fortress. The first single is coming soon; it's a nod to the 50 years of Motown and her songwriting partner Barrett Strong. The music video is on the cutting room floor and we have a few behind the scenes images from the video shoot below. Martin "Tino" Gross (Howling Diablos), and Eliza Neals  are both up for Detroit Music Awards so be sure and vote!

BREAKING NEWS - TNT's Locks The Doors!

on .

Wow......Can't say we didn't see it coming. But, after many a nights witnessing the total destruction a number of bands unleashed inside this east-side rock club, it looks like the place has finally succumbed to the relentless onslaught of weekly live music and has imploded it self. We're talking about TNT's in Clinton Twp., whose explosive live stage was scene to a number of record breaking nights, and we must say, memorable smoky nights of some of the area's finest rock & roll shows we've seen.  Sadly, today the doors are locked and the room emptied out, leaving one less room to play host to Michigan Made Music, a trend that we hate to see, but should make the overall market stronger. We believe all shows have been cancelled, but they may be moved to Boney's Nightclub, check back as we'll continue to find details.
