What's going on: Music festival

1. June 13, 2001 ...Detroit Free Press

Ballpark will host R&B singers

Ready for another downtown music event?

The growing roster of Detroit festivals now includes the Ford Detroit Music Festival, a Sept. 1 concert at Comerica Park featuring crooner Luther Vandross, young R&B star Ginuwine and classic R&B groovers Frankie Beverly & Maze.

The show was announced Tuesday at a Comerica Park press conference that included former Detroit Piston John Salley, who will emcee the Labor Day Weekend event.

Concerned that the concert will collide with the Ford Detroit International Jazz Festival? Don't fret, says Elliott Hall, a vice president at Ford Motor Co., which sponsors both events.

"This event covers the crowd that's not the pure jazz crowd," Hall says. Organizers say they'll be adding more names to the bill and hope to turn the festival into an annual, multiple-day party modeled on events in Cincinnati and New Orleans.

Tickets, $35-$125, go on sale June 23 through Ticketmaster. Call 313-359- 6110 anytime for details.
