Detroit’s Black Merda Bring Back Their Brand of Psychedelic Funk

Detroit’s Black Merda are taking the stage for the first time in nearly ten years during this year’s Hamtramck Labor Day Festival. The band formed in the late 1960s in Detroit, recorded for Chess Records, and were once Edwin Starr’s backing band. They take the stage at 9 p.m. on Monday, September 5 in Hamtramck.
