Doin' it up at Dally!

Another year at Dally in the Alley has come and gone. The festival was bumping loudly 'til after midnight, and just like Cinderella, when the clock struck it was time for the fun to end and the people to clear out. Dally in the Alley features food, music, vendors and drinking, just like many of the other festivals that we have attended this summer. There were a couple of highlights that I wanted to share with you, along with some pictures of the night.

The highlights of the festival were Tunde and The Detroit Party Marching Band. Tunde played the main stage at 9:30 and as he performed the crowd got bigger and bigger and started dancing harder and harder. I literally kept hearing people say “who is this guy” and “this dude is amazing”. We have been trying to tell you guys all year that this import from Flint is not to be missed. He performed with two of his dancers and killed it. He was even begged by the crowd to do one more song at the end of his set. Check out our interview with Tunde at PJ's Lager House just a few months ago. 


Head over to Tunde's bandcamp to purchase downloads off his first release, “The First Transgression”. You can also download his single "Brown Boy" for free off I AM PR Agency's Soundcloud.

The other highlight of the evening for me was when The Detroit Party Marching Band showed up marching through the streets and causing a dance riot wherever they went. I am obsessed with this marching band; they are fun and incredibly entertaining. Being a band nerd myself, I know what talent and physical toll that it takes to march around, entertaining crowds like that for hours. I started chasing them around the festival at the end of the night because I didn’t want the party to stop! Make sure to check them out when they show up at a local event by you.

Check out a few pictures that we got from the event and join us next year for the annual Dally in the Alley, always a great time.
