The 7th Annual Detroit Dio Tribute for Charity

The Detroit Dio tribute will return to the stage for its 7th year this Saturday at 7 p.m. Six different "cover" bands will be performing songs that span Dio's career. They are moving the event to The Diesel Concert Lounge, which is a lot bigger. So, this year will also feature tons of cool things to buy and look it. This includes booths from companies like Rock 'n' Rummage and a chance to take a selfie as Ronnie James Dio by putting your head through a cut out painting of the legend himself.

The best part of this tribute event is that it is also a fundraiser. The goal of this night is to honor Ronnie's amazing career and to raise money for April, a young lady suffering from reoccurring cancer. 

This is the lineup for the night, including the musicians playing in each band:

12:10 a.m. BANNED FROM H.E.L.L.
(Jason Quayle, Rachel May, Dennis Smith, Evan Hakim)

11:00 p.m. HALLOWEEN

(Pat DeLeon, Bryan Paxton, Rachel May, Pete Hopersberger, Big Al Grebovic)

(Nick Marocco, Ryan Goldsworthy, Bob Tyrrell, Josh Wizinsky, Dennis Schwan)

8:40 p.m. SACRED HEART (Traverse City)
(Jim Adkins, Mike Zimmerman,Damien Allen)

8:00 p.m. EVIL PLAY
