Funky Rivertown Fest: Dirk Kroll Band and Billy Brandt and the Sugarees!: David Roof, Roof Top Arts

The Funky Rivertown Fest is a new, five-day festival in downtown Ypsilanti dedicated to original music. The carefully curated program includes many Detroit Music Award winners and nominees playing across a wide variety of genres.

Dirk Kroll's songs are influenced by early British pop-rock, blues, funk, ska, and elements of Americana. He holds several Detroit Music Award nominations, and was awarded the Outstanding Rock/Pop Songwriter Award for 2020 and 2021. The Dirk Kroll Band spans genres and features horns, keyboards, and blended vocal harmonies.

Billy Brandt is one of the most decorated, celebrated singer songwriters and band leaders in the Detroit Music scene. He is bringing down his rock outfit, the Sugarees, to play a set of moving, thoughtful and celebratory music to the hall. His sounds cover the rock side of Americana, nodding back to greats like Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young to the Band, and so much more.
