Motown-pic-2Thursday May 14th 6:30 pm Graubner
Detroit is known the world over for the music that came out of a small studio on West Grand Boulevard during the 1960s and 1970s. But the Motown Sound wasn’t born from thin air. It had its roots in other music that was being made in Detroit and around the country in the years before the company’s founding in 1959. This presentation by the Detroit Historical Society’s Director of Marketing and Sales, Bob Sadler delves into the city’s history of music making, and the elements that contributed to the unique stylings of Motown and Tamla Records.

Join us as David and Pam Leander, owners of the Great Lakes Divecenter, bring to life a bit of our romantic past. The year was 1915 as two friends scribbled a message onto a piece of paper, sealed it in a bottle and then unknowingly tossed it into a virtual river of time. 97 years later, David Leander recovered that bottle and helped re-unite the past with the present. Come hear his exciting tale and the adventure that followed. Guaranteed fun for all history buffs and divers alike. No registration required, but seating is limited.
