Blowout Runnith Over: Detroit Party Marching Band Surprises Downtown Ferndalegallowaycollens

(C. Proxmire, May 5, 2013)

When their set was over at the Ferndale Public Library, the Detroit Party Marching Band was far from finished with their Saturday night fun.  So instead of packing up their instruments to head home, the eclectic group of musicians took their show on the road, playing along 9 Mile to the delight of many who were out enjoying Downtown Ferndale nightlife. Some residents, however, later complained online about the noise.  The band was in town for the Metro Times Blowout.  So far sightings have been reported at The Ferndale Public Library, Dino’s Lounge and Soho.
