About

Hastings Street Band was formed in the later part of 1985, and chose their name out of respect for the famed hub of the black bottom district. Hastings Street was once the heart of Detroit's "Paradise Valley," an African-American community that thrived from the 1920s through the 1950s. The neighborhood extended from Jefferson Ave. to Warren with Hastings Street serving as its commercial spine. This area was vibrant to the hub of the blues in it's heyday.
