- What to expect at their live show: a set of classic sing- and scream-alongs mixed with brand-new headbangers, all performed by a band so rejuvenated, they should be forced to wear "High Voltage" warning signs around their necks
Diesel Concert Lounge
"It's like a little city in there," says co-owner Mike Mitchell of the 47,000 square feet of entertainment surrounding Diesel Concert Lounge. As part of the Premier Lanes complex—also home to an Italian restaurant and the Premier Lanes Bowling Alley— Diesel Concert Lounge is a complete about-face from the space's previous incarnation: a country music club called Diamonds & Spurs. With Mitchell and Premier Lanes' owner Joe Sgroi behind the scenes, the floor where cows once learned how to square-dance is now a haven for head-banging hard rock and head-bobbing hip-hop.
As one of the only places in Michigan to sport multiple stages within one venue, Diesel keeps its calendar packed with a variety of touring stars and local heroes. Most of those heroes, including Kid Rock, Megadeth, and Uncle Kracker, are enshrined on the walls in hand-printed concert posters.
