"From Detroit USA, The Ruiners are a wild and fantastic beast; pure white lightning & sexy self-destruction. Having endured club bannings, court enforced restraining orders, jail terms, cat fights, bankruptcies, heart attacks, emergency room visits and death threats over the last 10 years, the band is now fresher, sexier & more self-confident then ever with their brand new album "Happy Birthday (BLEEP)!. This 10 song blast of Detroit sleaze has a lot of fuzzed out sounds, primitive drums, mucho sex appeal & greasy bar room grit... and that is what The Ruiners do best." --(Record Label Review)

"Three for the Show" is a local band who loves playing all types of good music -- combining musical styles of blues, jazz, old country, rockabilly, polka and the occasional splash of latin beats.
Dearborn's Dan Cannon sings, plays guitar and is also an excellent drummer. He is currently playing Ringo with "The Cavern Beat", a Beatles Tribute Band out of Chicago.
Lawrence plays the upright bass and background vocals. He also loves playing the tambourine.
Dan and Lawrence once worked together at an architectural firm, but their conversations were always about music.
David Gerald started playing guitar at the age of 16 influenced by Prince and 80’s rock guitarists. He rediscovered the blues and listened to the music of Albert King, ZZ Hill, B.B. King, and Stevie Ray Vaughan to name just a few. He performed in many local blues, R&B and rock bands cutting his guitar and vocal chops live and in person. Finding it hard to keep a band together, Gerald learned to play guitar, bass, keys and drums. Using two antiquated cassette recorders he would overdub each part individually until the song was completed.
Bon Rose Fine is an astrologer, writer, speaker and consultant who is based in Ypsilanti, MI. She developed an interest in astrology about eighteen years ago when she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. On the advice of a friend, she turned to astrologers in order to find answers as to why she had the disease and for questions about life in general. As she explored astrology more, Bon was led down the path to become an astrologer herself. Bon is involved with several organizations, has written many articles and has spoken extensively in regards to astrology.
