Power Play Detroit is a live cover band, dedicated to playing the most classic music of our time.

They don't just stand their and play, there is a lot of movement and Mike even plays the guitar behind his back.

Playing thousands of live gigs and dozens of sessions, his passion and level of experience are unparalleled. He has a commanding stage presence, delighting audiences with his outrageous guitar playing skills…. a consummate professional and total showman who’s live performance must be seen to be fully appreciated.


April Hudson

April developed a love of music at an early age, but didn’t start her singing career until after high school. A friend dared her to enter a local singing competition where she won first place.

Known for her powerful, blues-inspired vocals, she’s developed a reputation as a ballsy, tough-talking girl with a forceful, gutsy singing style. A dynamic, bluesy rock singer with a heartfelt passion, she has a talent and style that amazes audiences everywhere.
