The Whiskey Charmers

The Whiskey Charmers

The Whiskey Charmers is a Detroit-based Alt Country band led by Carrie Shepard and Lawrence Daversa. Fans have often compared their sound to riding through the desert with the top down, or the feeling of being in some lonesome smoky bar off the side of an abandoned highway, or music from a Spaghetti Western. William P Davis (Former Deputy Director of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville) says of the band, “I’ve heard a lot of good musicians. The Whiskey Charmers remind me of no one – and, to me, that is one of the best compliments an act can receive.”

The Whiskey Charmers have released two albums, a self titled album (2015) and "The Valley" (2017) which has just received a Detroit Music Award for Best Country Recording. Three of their songs have recently been in the new video game Detroit: Become Human, developed by Quantic Dream and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment for the PlayStation 4, released worldwide on May 25th.

Carrie and Lawrence often perform as a duo, but you can also catch them as a trio with Ozzie Andrews on upright bass, and as a four piece band adding Brian Ferriby on drums.

The Whiskey Charmers will be getting back into the studio this summer to record their third record, set to release in Spring/Summer 2019.

Ryan Neal

Ryan Neal

Ryan Neal fuses hip-hop-inspired production with soulful vocals, slinky guitar lines, vibey electric piano and funky bass riffs to create a sound that is both nostalgic and fresh. Neal grew up in a home that encouraged creativity, and began playing guitar shortly after watching the movie School of Rock as a teenager. “I remember coming home from elementary school and watching MTV’s TRL with my sisters every day. This was a huge contrast to my parent’s music which consisted of the Beach Boys, Sam Cooke, Stevie Wonder and countless other popular artists from the 50s through the 70s”, says Neal. These influences slowly began taking shape and he started writing songs in his late teens at Michigan State University. 

  After college, Neal moved to Nashville, TN and began kicking around the scene as an aspiring solo artist. However, it wasn’t until he embarked on a three-month journey to Nova Scotia, Canada, where he found his roots as an artist. “I rented a house in the middle of the woods on a secluded lake near the ocean. It was surreal. I lived a life of complete seclusion – writing music, learning production and living off the grid.” After returning home, Neal was able to synthesize everything he’d learned up until that point and began a quest of writing, producing and recording his debut EP at home in Michigan. As a musician, Neal is comfortable on many instruments and uses whatever is at hand for inspiration when crafting a song. “A handful of safety pins and a container of garlic salt can be just as useful as a guitar when you know what to do with them”, says Neal. 

In December 2018, Neal released his debut single, “Hang Tight”, which features a mid-tempo funk groove, jazz-flavored chords, Latin percussion and a catchy vocal hook that propels the song forward and keeps you humming along afterwards. “Hang Tight” is just a sample of what’s to come off his debut EP, Up My Sleeve, which is set to release on February 4, 2019. Keep your eye out for this Detroit artist that’s striving to merge the soul of Motown with the funk of the 70s and polish of modern production.

Main Gallery Opening: Sanda Cook

Main Gallery Opening: Sanda Cook

ARTIST STATEMENT: “The energy I draw from earthly elements and the cosmos are translated directly to my canvas. In this life, intention and purpose are everything. Abstract painting is my purpose, and while painting, I hold the intention of not just captivating, but healing the soul. My precious happiness, as well as my raw vulnerabilities enter into each piece I create. My work is a testament to the human spirit–a reminder that we are more than just flesh. We are spirits cradled by the spellbinding universe and all its glory.”

ARTIST BIO: Born and raised in Botosani, Romania, Sanda Cook is an award winning artist and sought-after spiritual adviser. Her creative and intuitive gifts became obvious in childhood. She recognized herself as an intuitive at the age of 10, and in her 20’s she spent 2 years in intensive training in the art of Tarot, Palmistry, and Energy Reading.

Sanda’s first art show, at the age of 13, was well-received by the press and public, and she spent the next 6 years in study and practice with her mentor, the late Mihai Bejenaru, winning several art prizes along the way. Bejenaru was an important presence in Sanda’s life, often reminding her, “God gave you a gift. Create, and painting will enrich your soul.”

After high school, Sanda studied Law for 5 years before entering Brasor School of Arts. She received her fine art degree in 1998. Sanda has traveled extensively through Europe, Japan and the United States, settling here in 2004. She regularly shows her art in Detroit, Michigan while also working as a spiritual adviser.

Since 2005 she has advised thousands of clients and is regularly invited to private parties to offer spiritual readings. In 2012, Sanda began to offer painting workshops and soon discovered that the paintings her students created spoke to her the way the tarot did, and she began to offer readings of the paintings as part of the workshop. Her students were not only delighted and entertained, but received valuable wisdom and insight.

Cook maintains that the soul speaks through creative expression, and her passion is to listen and interpret. Sanda is now a full-time artist and art intuitive. She shares her passion for healing and creative expression, along with her spiritual gifts, with hundreds of clients a year through private readings and soul painting sessions live and online, as well as with groups during live workshops.

DJ Scandalous

8:00 PM20:00

DJ Scandalous

The O'Jays “I Love Music” pretty much sums up his deep rooted affection for music. The “stanky” funk of George Clinton and the Parliament Funkadelic was the catalyst that inspired his exploration of ALL genres of music.  Hanging with his father, who was a record distributor in the 70’s and 80s; the heart of Disco, funk, rap and rock, is what really tantalized his musical taste buds and invoked his passion for wax . House music embodied all of those genres.  Chris took that passion to college in 1987 and spent many years perfecting the art of mixing and blending with the help from his mentor, DJ Fink.  Today, you will hear his mixing style influenced from Frankie Knuckles, Ron Hardy, Lil Louis, Farley Jackmaster Funk, DJ Fink, Joe Barrett, Kenny Mahone,  DJ Clay, Daniell Spencer, Terry James and Brian Reeves.

About the program:

Artists are strategically matched with an inspiration – someone who has been touched by cancer, which includes survivors, previvors, caregivers and supporters.  Over a period of 4-6 months, the artist will work with their inspiration to create a unique piece of artwork that is reflective of their journey with cancer.  The program culminates in an evening of survivorship, hope and inspiration where the art is auctioned off.

On The Sun +Nadir Omowale

8:00 PM20:00

On The Sun +Nadir Omowale

DSC and This is a Good Sound are pleased to present On The Sun and Nadir Omowale!

"The story of On The Sun [is one] of artistic collaboration and persistence on every level of the musical process. [...] There's a decidedly metropolitan, New York-Y sound and feel here that is true to On The Sun's roots. While listening, [...] one may be prone to see flashes of blurred traffic lights, streets and sidewalks, like a sped up film of NYC turning from day to night." -JUDE WARNE, LIVE FOR LIVE MUSIC

"On The Sun feels the music. Every note they play, they live it. [...] When you watch this band, it doesn’t feel like you’re watching, but rather that you’re part of the group." -Parisa Mahdad, KINOFILIA ARTS BLOG

On The Sun makes sleek and modern groove music steeped in classic and contemporary soul, funk, americana, and R&B. Since its inception this simmering soul juggernaut has issued a debut LP; a vibrant version of Leonard Cohen’s "Bird On A Wire”; the standalone single, “She Gets Around”, and spent the majority of 2018 touring in support of their latest effort Gratuity Not Included, appearing at a variety of music festivals including performances at SXSW, the Ann Arbor Summer Festival, Off The Record Fest and Sail Across The Sun. The group has also cultivated a close relationship with Sofar Sounds resulting in a series of intimate concerts across the country.

Nadir Omowale doesn’t have time to stand still. There is far too much life to be lived.

The fifteen-time Detroit Music Award winner and former MTV News correspondent is driven by an impassioned activism. All of his hats – performer, producer, creative strategist – are worn by a man who explores as he produces, teaches as he advises, and creates art that honors the fact that life is filled with extremes and in-betweens. The result is infectious, a creative electricity that is essential to who Nadir is.

Nadir will tell you that life is too important, not to be an activist. His impressions about life are the essence of his work. His lyrics can tug at heartstrings, tickle funny bones, or evoke an honest look at the world around us, and (possibly more importantly) the world within us.

His music is influenced by funk, but don’t call Nadir a funk revivalist. His understanding of rock, R&B, hip hop, and jazz takes funk to a most Nadir-centric next step; a Southern born, and Detroit raised sound that doesn’t fit in traditional boxes. His music reaches across genres and political aisles – sometimes with a gentle, outstretched hand, and occasionally with a clenched fist – always challenging listeners with a funk inspired, Motor City sound that is as relevant today, as Holland-Dozier-Holland were in the sixties.

Jane Asher of Radio Sophie 103.7FM in San Diego writes of Nadir:

“If Motown had never moved to L.A.,

this is what it would sound like today.”

An Evening with The Parducci Socicety

The Parducci Society is a 501c3 organization of architectural enthusiasts dedicated to studying and sharing their love of architectural ornamentation and craft.  It was founded in 2012 by four Michigan residents who realized the architecture of their state, and Detroit in particular, needed to be further recognized and studied so current and future generations could appreciate its value and beauty.

We are named for 20th-century sculptor and ornamentalist Corrado Parducci, an Italian-American immigrant who made his career in Detroit. In over six decades he completed nearly 600 commissions, yet his name is nearly forgotten.  The Parducci Society will showcase not only historic architectural craft but also the architectural artists of today who make our world a more beautiful place.

Come enjoy the featured art from different Detroit artists as they explore the architectural details found only in the city.
