The Ritz was alive with Detroit Rock ‘n Roll on Friday night, January 31st, 2014. Local bands donned the stage of venerable bar in Warren, Michigan for BLK Entertainment’s the Ultimate Bad Boys of Rock Showcase. Ghosts of August headlined the night with special guests Ballz Deluxe, Crackjaw, and Bloodline Riot in support.

The event was made an ideal showcase for these great local artists. The lighting was perfect, and sound engineering done well. It was everything needed to make for a perfect night of rock bar entertainment. Unfortunately, the crowd was rather lack luster. Even so, it doesn’t take away from the great performances given on stage.

National Rock Review was on hand to cover the night. Take a moment and enjoy the pics from the show.
