About

The Codgers are an Americana band who formed in 2006 at the now closed Tipperary Pub in Detroit’s Warrendale neighborhood. The band defines their genre as folk, Celtic, and Americana, but they also cover bands like the Rolling Stones and Johnny Cash. When they played at Mario’s Italian Restaurant, The Codgers fired up the crowd to the point where people started crowd surfing.
Lead Vocalist John Freeman was quoted as saying “The employees all descended on the room to see what in the hell was going on. We’re pretty sure it’s the only time something like that has happened at Mario’s, so we’re kind of proud of the incident.” According to their Facebook, Our claim to fame is sparking the first crowd-surfing incident at Mario's restaurant in Detroit.
