MainStreet Soul
Since playing its first live show as a band in early 2010, Mainstreet Soul has received a warm reception from the Detroit-area music scene and beyond. The band has performed at local venues, private parties, festivals, weddings and even in a movie. Mainstreet Soul secured a part in the film “Salvation Boulevard” starring Pierce Brosnan, Jennifer Connelly, Ed Harris, Marisa Tomei and Greg Kinnear, which was released in 2011. The band also recorded an original song entitled, “Black Dress Baby”, which was used in a Quicken Loans commercial and starred Magic Johnson that aired nationally on TV & radio in the fall of 2011. The positive response and big-screen exposure surely place Mainstreet Soul among the ranks of the best cover bands in Michigan.

Mainstreet Soul’s sound is unique, and the band members’ personalities shine through in every performance of songs made famous by such artists as Tower of Power; Blood, Sweat & Tears; Stevie Wonder; Chicago; Aretha Franklin; Michael Jackson; Sly & The Family Stone and much more.
