My Farewell to Joe Louis Arena in Detroit

My Farewell to the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit – Former Home of the Detroit Red Wings

I had a chance to take some photos of Joe Louis Arena when I was picking up my packet for the Hockeytown 5K on Sunday. I know this building is now formerly closed and will be demolished for a new development. This was one last chance to photograph the interior and exterior. My favorite trip here was watching the Detroit Red Wings beat the Colorado Avalanche during the 2002 Conference finals. Sunday, I will be inside the Little Caesars Arena as Detroit is moving its professional hockey and basketball teams to a single venue. The City of Detroit is now the only city in the U.S. to have all four professional sports franchise venues downtown.

Hudson – Jazz Supergroup with DeJohnette – Scofield – Medeski – Grenadier at Detroit Jazz Fest

Hudson – Jazz Supergroup with DeJohnette – Scofield – Medeski – Grenadier at Detroit Jazz Fest | Photos

Hudson, a jazz supergroup with a legendary lineup, played this year’s Detroit Jazz Festival and it was an amazing set. I never thought I would hear Jack DeJohnette sing in live, but he was really great. I once flew to New York just to see Jack DeJohnette, Gary Peacock, and Keith Jarrett perform at the New Jersey PAC. I have been known to purchase two John Scofield CDs so I would have one to share with a friend so others could get to know his music. Larry Grenadier is such an incredible bass player and keyboardist John Medeski plays with palpable intensity and creativity. Thanks for coming to Detroit.

I wanted to share my photos from the show. If you share on social media, please credit Rod Arroyo @portraitsbyrod.
