Royal Oak Music City: October

September 27, 2012

Built in 1928, the Royal Oak Music Theatre started out as a grand movie house typical of its era. Though it still hosts the occasional movie, the Royal Oak Music Theatre is now known for much, much more. Comedy nights, private parties, heck, even boxing routinely draws big crowds. What it’s really known for, though, is all in the name. Let’s take a look at what will have concert-goers lining up on 4th Street and wrapping around the block this October.

Mike G is a songwriter and local musician, freelance writer, baseball enthusiast, lover of travel, and a terrible mechanic. When MJ graduated from Central Michigan University with a degree in Creative Writing, he was immediately barraged with 'questions' of "What are you gonna do, teach?" He is determined to not get a job teaching. So far, so good. With music, MJ's traveled the country touring on his songs. Having spent time in places from Chicago to Seattle, LA to New Orleans, and Nashville to NYC, he is convinced that Detroit and its 'burbs have the the highest concentration of 'native' songwriting talent anywhere. Eat it, New York. You too, LA. MJ started writing for the Urbane Life in the summer of 2011. He also writes for a handful of other websites as well as an immigration lawyer. He used to work in a publishing house. He's glad he's out.
