"Rockin on the Riverfront"

DMM went to Rockin' on the Riverfront in Detroit at the GM Renaissance Center on Friday July 27, 2018 to see Steppenwolf. Our photos of the event are on our "Events Page" for the concert. These concerts are sponsored every year by Chevrolet, promoted and managed by 94.7 WCSX FM and, undoubtedly, engender a lot of good will because they are very well attended.

We were disappointed there was to be a "warm up" band, until we heard them. Slowfoot is a band hailing from Waterford, MI and seems to specialize in (sort of) heavy and intense slow rock, covers and originals, interspersed with some rocked out faster tunes. They do some covers that we have all heard, but not the songs that have been worn out by repetitive abuse at the hands of other bands. The lead singer has an amazing voice and, during a Beatles cover, you would have sworn John Lennon was on the stage if you closed your eyes. But it wasn't just the singer; every piece of this band, including the instrumentals and the backup vocals fit together into a great musical experience. - Detroit Metro Mashup

Bio

Slowfoot began as a side project for a few musician friends in a Waterford, Michigan basement in 2014.  The current lineup was solidified in 2015 as follows:

Frank Grimaldi - Lead Vocal, Guitar
Mike Conley - Guitar, Vocals
Peter Zajicek - Hammond Organ, Vocals
Kris Greig - Bass Guitar
Tony DiDio - Drums, Vocals

The group started playing cover tunes for fun and quickly recognized the chemistry was great enough to form a full-fledged band.  Blending the sounds old-school rock & roll with soul music of the 50's & 60's and the blues Slowfoot found their niche almost immediately and began producing original compositions.

To date the highlight of the bands performances was opening for 60's rock legends Steppenwolf on the Detroit Riverfront for the annual "Rockin on the Riverfront" concert series.

With a tight groove, heartfelt guitar and organ solos, and searing vocals Slowfoot is definitely a band on the rise, and one to take notice of.  The band is currently working on a full studio record that will begin production in 2019.
