Motor City Riffs 09/10/2023
From Bob Seger to Kid Rock, Alice Cooper to I Prevail, Detroit is the home of outstanding rock and roll, and has been for decades. Those are a couple of names that have made it big from the Motor City, and Motor City Riffs is aiming to find the next big names in Detroit Rock.
This week, as we do every Sunday, Nate and I featured bands from all across the state, covering multiple genres of rock and roll. There’s some hard rock, heavy metal, and some softer rock thrown in, as well. Every band is different and has their own unique sound. We featured some amazing bands on the show this week, and are getting great submissions for future weeks, too.
On the show Sunday, you heard some new bands to the show, some familiar bands, and a band that’s going to be joining us at Riff Fest 2023 and kicking off the show, with Frame 42.
If you didn’t already know, Motor City Riffs airs on 101 WRIF every Sunday night from 9pm-10pm and if you’d like your band to be featured on a future edition, it’s totally possible! Please send your MP3 and info about your band to MCR@wrif.com and you’ll be submitted to have your stuff played. Please make sure that you are a band from Michigan, or with ties to the area, and that your stuff is clean. If it’s explicit, it won’t get played.
Here are the tracks and local bands we featured on this week’s edition of MCR!
