THE 2016 INSTALLMENT OF THE DETROIT DIO TRIBUTE IS BACK AND IT'S BIGGER THAN EVER! We're excited to be back for our 7th installment of this incredible event. Join us as we celebrate the life and music of the legendary metal singer Mr. Ronnie James Dio, with music from some of the area's finest musicians, performing songs that span Dio's career. As always, we'll be raising money to help relieve the financial strain of a local individual with cancer. This year's recipient will be April Caudill, a local resident and close personal friend of the Quayle's. April is suffering from reoccurring breast cancer and has a tough road ahead. The success of our previous events has led us in search of a larger venue and we're pleased to be moving the event to the Diesel Concerts Detroit in Chesterfield Twp. The larger space will give us more room to expand the stage show, more room for our longtime event supporters Rock N Rummage, and more room to bring you new features like the HOW DO YOU DIO? FACEHOLE. That's right! You'll have your chance to put your face in the hole of a giant Ronnie James Dio painting. This year's lineup is packed with some of the area's finest musicians. Be sure to join us on this most special of occasions. DETROIT DIO TRIBUTE 2016 **MASTER OF THE MOON ( Kelley Dwight Huff,Michael Lafferty, David Novak, Jason Nikou, Ed Reid) **BANNED FROM H.E.L.L.

“- Every now and then an artist comes along who truly has a sound all their own, and Lisa Hurt of Hazel Park definitely has that extra “something” that makes you stop and listen. I saw her play live for the first time about a month ago and I was blown away! Since then, I have seen her play live two or three more times and I’m still blown away. It’s amazing what a talented singer/songwriter can do with just a piano and a stool. Lisa’s got a great voice and she is an awesome songwriter, who uses the lyrics of her songs to tell some very poignant stories of some of the highs and lows of her life. You can hear an entire hour long special on Lisa Hurt, featuring music from her CD “Becoming Lisa Ledbetter”, at The Radio Cafe.com. Just click on the “Local Artist Spotlight” link and enjoy! Lisa Hurt is another one of those local artists whose time to shine is long overdue.”
