We all know Detroit has faced tough times. But Detroit's creative scene is bursting with vibrancy. Two Detoit nonprofits, COMPÁS and the Carr Center, are channeling this creative energy, giving kids music and dance lessons, as well as fun, creative spaces to hang out and explore.
With your help, they can bring even more music to Motown - and all you need to do is stop by and shake what your momma gave you.
Or bid on one of our fab auction items, including a signed copy of Just Kids, by former Detroit resident and musical icon Patti Smith or a weekend trip to Detroit.
Just by showing up, you're in the running for raffle items like a free trip to the top of the Empire State Building.

More recently Cole has put out two "So Emotional" EPs with Phi Unit, an entry in the White Light mix series, and a podcast for Modular records. His remix of the 1993 classic "House For All" by Blunted Dummies is coming soon on T&A Records.
