Folk The Police… pure Michigan brilliance


January 31, 2013 by Benji

When I moved to Detroit from New York, I was concerned about the music scene here (or the perspective lack thereof). So my friend Miko and I started a group on Facebook called Michigan Live Music Scene. Over that last few years, the group has grown to over 2500 members, I am fairly proud of it.

Aside from amazing shows coming to town  (Grace Potter and the Nocturnals , Lotus, moe. , Umphreys McGee, The Avette Bros, JJ Grey just to name a few who are in Michigan in the 1st quarter of 2013.

What I am really excited about is the show that just happened in Ann Arbor called Folk The Police. This show, put on by Matthew Altruda (AKA Tuna) who has been Michigan Live Music supporter for years, working with the likes of the Macpodz, the Ragbirds, Abigale Staufer, Tree Town Sound (his radio show) and Sonic Lunch ( a series of concerts in the park in Ann Arbor during the summer).

FOLK THE POLICE is collection of musicians and bands from Michigan getting together to play their folk version of rap/hip hop songs… Sounds weird, but its awesome. Rather than me trying to describe it. click here and check out the recording.

Props to The Ragbirds, Black Jake & The Carnies, Joshua Davis , Dan Henig, Ben Daniels Band, Abigail Stauffer, Dragon Wagon, Back Forty,
Joe Hertler, Wolfie Complex, Anna Lee’s Company, Nicole P’Simer, Nathan K, Christopher Norman, Spencer Michaud and Finer Things.

Kudos you guys! this really was amazing. If anyone has a cleaner recording, please let me know.
