Turn Out for Comerica Taste Fest 2006 in Detroit's Historic New Center DETROIT, July 5 /PR Newswire/ -- Metro Detroit's ultimate summer event the 18th annual Comerica Taste Fest -- was once again enjoyed by more than a half-million people over the Fourth of July holiday weekend in Detroit's Historic New Center neighborhood. The all-ages food and music festival, held June 30 - July 4, showcased more than 40 of metro Detroit's most popular restaurants serving a diverse international palette of cuisines and a stellar line-up of free local and national musical entertainment to rival all other major festivals.

"We strive to produce a top-quality event and this year was no exception with one of the most diverse collections of cuisines we've ever had, as well as one of the hottest musical line-ups in the 18-year history of the Comerica Taste Fest," said Randall Fogelman, festival director. "We are also fortunate to have the unique historic urban setting of Detroit's New Center to host this great party, and it's very gratifying to hear all of the positive feedback from festival goers about the neighborhood's many new developments."

Saturday July 1st from 7:30 PM until 10:15 PM, on the Metro PCS Jazz & Blues Stage was an electrifying show by B.E.T.'s Award winner guitarist Robert Lowe (plus his 8 piece band); and vocalist Cody Black. This show went from a few renditions of the late jazz great Wes Montgomery's famous hits by Lowe; to some very soulful Blues by Black, to breath taking R&B done by Ms. Sharon Jones. This show went across the board; and made that night, a night to remember!
