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.

Girl Grow Chats

Come grow with us!

Topic: Emotional Well-Being for the Win

Have you allowed someone or something take you out of character? We've all had times when we wished we would have responded to something differently. Our emotions play a big role in the way we navigate life. When your emotions are taking over your thoughts it's time to take a step back, take a deep breath, and take a moment. We'll be having a moment at the next Girl Grow Chats as we honor Emotional Wellness month.

You don't want to miss this great gathering of supportive women as we discuss the journey to overall happiness and well-being.

5:30-6:00PM - Small Bites & Networking (cocktails available for purchase)

6:00-7:00PM - Let's Chat


About Girl Grow Chats:

What are Girl Grow Chats: Real women having real conversations, about real life! Girl Grow Chats are moderated conversations and activities for women that cover topics of getting to know themselves, finding strength in being themselves and fully loving themselves. We also talk about what to do with all these good vibes on the journey to live our best life.

Who should attend Girl Grow Chats? Women committed to self-discovery, self-care and who are on a crusade to improve their lives. Women who are willing to invest in themselves emotionally and be vulnerable in a way that breaks through figurative walls. Women tired of being stuck and ready to dive deep into topics and issues that tend to weigh us down. Women looking for a tribe as she navigates her journey. If you are reading this, you would benefit!

What are the activities? In every Girl Grow Chat we participate in exercises focused on the topic discussed. They are always fun and high energy. We get a lot of 'aha' moments and do a lot of laughing.

Should you be afraid to share? Absolutely not. The Girl Grow Chats are curated to be safe, non-judgmental spaces. Women who participate vibe good energy and want you to succeed just as much as they want to succeed. But it's up to you how much you share. I want you to feel comfortable.

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: GUTE

Main Gallery Opening: GUTE

Michael Norman Gute is an award-winning artist working and living in Detroit, Michigan. When asked about his approach to creating work he explained, “I am most interested in the process or the journey it requires to create a work. I practice ignoring the expectations one naturally places on outcome and instead I trust the work to develop on its own. To my excitement and discomfort, my primary role is to listen and carry out the will of the materials.”

Gute’s iconographic approach to subject matter is a decision to activate the viewer. He elaborates in saying, “By allowing the viewer to recognize a series of objects in an otherwise abstract field they begin to build a narrative. I am drawn to images of vessels, bull horns, a bird’s wingspan, clusters of grapes, different parts of the body submerged in water, and other images powerful enough to evoke personal memories and experiences. I know a work is done when it becomes complex enough to suggest more than one story. That is the moment I step back and interpret my own.”

Gute holds a baccalaureate degree in painting and art history from Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University and a master’s in historic preservation and museum administration from Eastern Michigan University. He is currently a candidate for a Master of Business Administration at Wayne State University’s Mike Ilitch School of Business. He has earned a reputation as a speaker, seeker, successful business person and advocate.

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.
