Our theme song was created by DUENDE!, a Detroit band who embodies everything the city has to offer. Their music is inspired by the motor city’s history of rock-n-roll, with unique blues overtones. 

Over its first six years, DUENDE! steadily morphed into a band built for anything/everything and some kinda other thing.”

Its members are Laura ‘the Boom’ Willem on drums, Scott Sanford on electric bass, ‘Jelly Roll’ Joel McCune on 6- & 12-string guitars, harmonica, vocals, and Jeffery ‘diddles’ Howitt with vocals/lyrics, 6-string guitar, and theremin.
