Show Alert: The Walkervilles stroll into Detroit

Fri., Apr. 11
Magic Stick Lounge ~ Detroit
With Jeremy Porter and the Tucos and Moon Walks

Don't believe The Walkervilles' Facebook profile"The Walkervilles are a Motown/rock influenced group from the Detroit area." Okay, believe the Motown/rock influenced part, the key word being "influenced." They're not just emulating the sound. Despite the retro white waiter shirts and bowties in their press photos and a name that summons images of a barbershop quartet, they're using Motown R&B, rock and soul as a springboard into contemporary interpretation. We're looking forward to seeing just how far they've come since this 2012 show review. We know how far they're coming for their show at the Stick. Across the river, because this trio is from Windsor. Listen: "Bag It Up" by The Walkervilles.
