Some good ole fashioned rock 'n roll this Thursday

I have never seen so much press about an event in Chelsea before, but in case you somehow missed it, Mitch Ryder and his band will be performing in Chelsea on Thursday Night. Pretty cool, huh? Last I heard, VIP tickets were close to sold out, but there is still time for the rest of us to get in on the concert. Tickets are available by going online at www.chelseacenterforthearts.org or by calling the CCA at (734) 433-2787. The performance will be in the entertainment tent behind the Common Grill, which will be set up similarly as during SummerFest concerts (which is this weekend, too!).

Mitch Ryder, dubbed a rock and roll legend by many, is most famous here in Michigan because he is a Detroit rocker born in Hamtramck. His best known hits are "CC Rider" and "Devil with a Blue Dress & Good Golly Miss Molly", which is listed as one of the 500 Songs That Shaped Rock and Roll by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Search for Mitch Ryder videos on YouTube to see some great clips and vintage performances.

This is a special event organized by the Sounds & Sights on Thursday Nights committee, and funds raised will go to help keep great musicians and entertainers coming to Chelsea on Thursdays throughout the summer.
