Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels performing “Devil With a Blue Dress/Good Golly Miss Molly”
Michigan Rock and Roll Legends Hall of Famer Mitch Ryder has long been the circuit connecting ‘60s Motown with ‘70s Motor City punk. With a voice as smoky and rare as a barbecued dodo, Ryder’s blue-eyed soul packs a black-eyed punch thanks to the raw energy of his backing band, The Detroit Wheels. Onstage, the performers crackle with greatest hits such as “Jenny Take a Ride,” “Sock It to Me–Baby,” and Ryder’s raucous, definitive take on “Devil With a Blue Dress On,” typically suffixed with a howling run through “Good Golly Miss Molly.”
Rare Earth performing "I Just Want to Celebrate" in 1973
Rocking enough to jam with Hendrix, yet funky enough to fit with Sly and the Family Stone, Rare Earth singed the late ‘60s and early ‘70s with a string of get-up-and-dance anthems that could lubricate the stiffest of tin men. In rave-ups and get-down chuggers such as “I Just Want to Celebrate,” “Hey Big Brother,” and “Losing You,” the multi-platinum selling group flex their live muscles throughout a sweat-inducing set.
