Charles (Buddy) Smith
RESURRECTION Indeed! Experience the resurrection of vocalist and songwriter CHARLES "BUDDY" SMITH. Appropriately titled, RESURRECTION is the name of his latest collection of hot new material. His musical career began in the sixties, with two popular 45 rpm single releases that have become the foundation of the Northern Sound genre in the British Isles and beyond. His deft touch writing and the delivery of his tunes and lyrics yielded an ever appreciative and adoring following. His soothing, but powerful chords grab the psyche with a wonderful resonance that is undeniable.
He recently performed with Sir Mack Rice (Mustang Sally) on a broadcast of Garrison Keillor's "Prairie Home Companion", recorded at the Fox Theatre in Detroit. He established "The New Resurrection" band where he performs all over the Metropolitan Detroit area. You will not want to miss an opportunity to see one of Detroit's Musical legends.
In the mid-60's the Motown Sound began to capture world-wide recognition. Many artists from that era have become household names. The Miracles, The Temptations, The Supremes, The Four Tops, The Marvelettes, Marvin Gaye, "Little" Stevie Wonder, and many others have been an integral part of our lives. That was 40 years ago, and the fascination with this generation of music has not only endured, but grown stronger than ever. The fact that the Motown Station exhibits the levels of talent, professionalism, dedication, and musical genius, is one of the reasons for the phenomenon. Detroit based musicians are responsible for many awesome tracks recorded for Motown artists.
Many of the artists that contributed to this enduring musical legacy are unnamed and unrecognized to this day. On such group, primarily recognized as "THE FUNK BROTHERS" consisted of many of the contributing musicians that have been overlooked for various reasons, but historically they cannot be denied. In a masterful attempted to rectify this HUMONGUS ERROR and bring to light the names of the forgotten players that received little or no recognition, financial compensation, or their share of the world-wide fame that only a select few have continuously enjoyed, an organization of Detroit Musicians, recording and performing in Detroit during the 60's have collaborated to create "THE DETROIT HISTORIC MUSICIANS ASSOCIATION" (The D.H.M.A. BAND.)
On October 11, 2003, the Men of Motown awards ceremony was held at the Renaissance Center. Not only were many artists reunited after 40 years, each artist was honored openly, honestly, and lovingly as the unsung heroes responsible for creating the Detroit Sound from which the universally appreciated Motown Sound was born.
The current roster of the D.H.M.A. Band consists of Thomas Postell and McKinley Jackson (Keyboards); JOEY KINGFISH Stribling and Randy Catchings (Guitars); Shondu Akien (Percussion); Gary Sims (Drums); Frank Garcia II (Electric Upright Base/Base Guitar); Larry Mine (Harmonica)
