Motorcity 3 to play jazz, funk and blues concert at Michigan Medicine
Rodney Walker (guitar), Paul Price (drums) and Rick Mickens (bass) are three experienced musicians from Metro Detroit who enjoy playing jazz, funk and blues.
Each member of the Motorcity 3 has performed in other ensembles and groups locally and nationally for many years in the jazz, rock, funk and blues genres, but it’s the jazz format where they thrive.
No matter the genre, they strive to get people movin’ and groovin’. As they perform a variety of swinging jazz and jazzy funk & blues standards, listening for the influences is part of the fun.
Next week, the trio will play a free concert in the University Hospital courtyard. This show is part of the Michigan Medicine Gifts of Art Summer Courtyard Concert Series.
What: Gifts of Art free concert
When: Noon – 1 p.m., Thursday, June 16
Where: University Hospital Courtyard
Rain/heat location: University Hospital Main Lobby, Floor 1
