No question, Detroit is one of the best places in the world for music. We created Motown and Techno, and there’s a rich history of jazz, soul, R&B, rap, rock and even a little country. With musical geniuses coming out of Detroit like Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder, J Dilla, Eminem and so many others, there’s an underground music scene that’s creating the future of music as we speak. Get out and enjoy it all.
