Big & Bigger on CaveRadio with Nadir, Volcano, Chris Spooner, and DJ Ray 7

Friday, November 14 was a night full of surprises as Nadir, Christopher Spooner, DJ Ray 7, and Volcano visited the CaveRadio studios and appeared on the show Big and Bigger.

The fellas talked about Nadir’s Electric Lounge, discussed their favorite war movies, and played a few funky tunes including an unexpected and highly unorthodox rap battle between Volcano and some random dude from the bar next door. Hilarity ensues…

Say, ‘Yeah, Yeah’! Jamming The Fela! Musical After Party at Music Hall, Saturday, February 16

Say ‘Yeah, Yeah’! On Saturday, February 16, we’re playing the FELA! The Musical After Party at the Music Hall in Detroit. And because we love you and we love Fela, we’ve got the secret password that can get you DISCOUNTED TICKETS FOR THE PLAY!

FELA! The Musical with Michelle Williams at Music Hall DetroitBack by popular demand, the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical FELA moves into the Music Hall this week for 8 shows beginning on Tuesday, February 12. In case you haven’t heard, FELA! is the dynamic work about the life of Fela Kuti, the legendary father of Afrobeat and activist in Nigeria. This year the show gets some added star power in the person of Michelle Williams of Destiny’s Child, fresh off her Super Bowl appearance last weekend.

To make sure that everyone who may have missed the show last year, or anyone who wants to see it again is aware of the second chance, we have a terrific offer for our Detroit family: PAY ONLY $30 for a $50 ADULT TICKET (Main Floor and Front Mezzanine) with the box office code ‘YeahYeah’! This offer is available only at the Music Hall box office, not through Ticketmaster, so you must call 313-887-8501 or go to the Music Hall at 350 Madison Avenue.

Then after the play on Saturday night, come down and party with us, with the cast and with the musical’s musicians in the Jazz Cafe. The party starts right after the curtain drops, and in true Africa Shrine tradition, we will be dancing ALL NIGHT LONG!
