spaceband / Bio

Using a variety of homemade, toy, percussion, wind and electronic instruments The Space Band embodies a colorful and artistic approach to music that has enthralled Michigan audiences for over 10 years. Costumed musicians weave a tapestry of soundscapes and African leaning poly rhythms, be-bop inspired vocal poetry and post funk bass to create a percolating hotbed of sound to accompany a stage show that must be seen to be believed.

The Space band has performed at multiple Art venues and galleries and many Detroit area music festivals including the 4th Street Fair, Russell Industrial center's "People's Art Fair" and Detroit's legendary "Dally in the Alley". The Space Bands' music has been featured in several films by Detroit filmmakers including Gary Freeman.
