with Dwight Adams (trumpet with Stevie Wonder)

Michael Palazzolo, Kevin Venney, RM, and Detroit Techno wizard Jon Dixon

Before the Coronavirus Pandemic, bassist Michael Palazzolo (Bob James) and I brought you two successful shows with a third about to occur, combining the best creative musicians in Detroit, Toronto, and Windsor, including: Dwight Adams (trumpeter with Stevie Wonder), Louis Jones III, Sam Dickinson, Alex White, Kevin Grenier, and Kasan Belgrave. We brought you world-class music outside of Phog Lounge during the Coronavirus Pandemic for over 3 months. We were joined by drummer Nick Bracewell, the great Detroit Techno wizard pianist Jon Dixon, Toronto virtuoso guitarist Sam Dickinson, pianist Kevin Grenier, and drummer Kevin Venney. We SO MUCH appreciate your love and support during this time. Now, as things slowly return to normal, we need your support more than ever! We want to bring you, the community, world-class creative music on a weekly basis. Really, UNITED is not just about jazz, but a music with emphasis on creative improvisation, pulling from all genres of our collective consciousness: Motown, Jazz, Funk, Soul, Blues, Hip-Hop, Rap, R&B, Detroit Techno, Rock, and so much more. We want you to support your local artists, and enjoy the music whenever you can. We want musicians to be able to hang out, sit in, and not have to pay a cover charge. We want students to show up with their voices and instruments, and learn from the masters while not having to worry about cover. And finally, as the border reopens and it's deemed safe, we want to bring you Detroit's greats on a weekly basis, UNITING our beautiful sister cites. WINDSOR deserves this kind of weekly mainstay.
