Doop & the Inside Outlaws: The deep working class roots of singer/songwriter Don “Doop” Duprie echo throughout his music. Front man for the Detroit area alt-country/roots rock band Doop and the Inside Outlaws, Doop is a laid off firefighter born and raised in industrial River Rouge, Michigan. He teamed up with legendary Detroit producer Jim Diamond (White Stripes) to record his albums “Blood River,” “Everett Belcher” and now “What am I supposed to do?”
Doop’s songwriting has received national attention, having been hailed “hands down the best songwriter we (Detroit) now have to offer the Americana World” by Don Zelazny, AmericanaRoots.com.
The albums made the Top Ten Lists in Metro Times and AmericanaRoots.com. “Everett Belcher” won the Detroit Music Award for “Outstanding Country Recording” and was named “Album of the Day” by Country Music Pride’s podcast Americana Daily. Doop’s music has been featured on the American Public Media radio show “The Story,” the award-winning podcast Digivegas.com and the #1 rated Americana podcast, “Americana Roots Roundtable” on NoDepression.com.
HafLife should never have existed! Stranger than fiction; two Detroit university students, obtain funding to develop a aural therapy to cure night terrors. The results were disastrous, and the two were immediately dismissed. The only positive effect was the unrelenting propensity for test subjects to gyrate prior to awakening. The two rogue researchers, left the country and went abroad to continue their experiments. Collaborating with last known members of the famed “Numbers Project”, this sonic think tank formed the “Atomic Gyration Institute”, solely dedicated to the subatomic quantum physics of gluteal gyration. MD 20/20, Handi J, V, and Tsar Bomba (names permanently changed… Interpol issues), continue to perform their sonic experiments, under the name HafLife. Labeled everything from “Bootycore” to “The Biker band of the Information Super Highway”, HafLife continues to defy the Motor City garage rock genre. They continually perform unlicensed aural experiments on unsuspecting crowds, searching for that perfect mathematical gyration deep within the gluteal fold. Since its inception, seismic activity has increased worldwide. Pi, Phi and Pythagoras be damned… long live HafLife & THE ATOMIC GYRATION INSTITUTE… Counting Down, One life at a time.
Bill Grogan’s Goat is a collective of five Detroit area musicians who blend their many varied musical styles together to create a high energy fresh approach to the Celtic folk/rock tradition. Combining a rock band format of bass, drums and guitars with traditional instruments such as Irish bouzouki, tin whistle, mandolin, violin and 5 string banjo, Bill Grogan’s Goat offers a highly listenable blend of Detroit/Celtic rock! Bill Grogan’s Goat will excite and please both young and old!
Alison Lewis and String of Ponies are the songs of Alison Lewis and her band, String Of Ponies.The Ponies come and go, and sometimes come back again, which keeps the music fresh and always evolving. The one thing that remains every time are the songs written by Alison lewis. She will show up and sing her heart out. You can count on that.
