If you don’t think of Michigan as a hotbed of bluegrass, Detour is the band that will change your mind. As musicians, singers, and songwriters, the members of "Detour hold their own on any bluegrass stage. They’re a thoroughly professional, highly entertaining band with a terrific repertoire of originals, classics, hot instrumentals, and a few surprises. For the total bluegrass package, take this Detour!"
Bob Blackman, host of “The Folk Tradition,” WKAR-FM, East Lansing, MI
"I believe Detour is one of the best "undiscovered" bands out there. From great songwriting to vocals and instrumental prowess, these guys have it - including that difficult to describe touch of "magic"."
Terry Herd, Bluegrass Today
"From the moment those guys began playing/singing, I was aware that I was privy to a special moment in Bluegrass. I heard my first live Bluegrass in 1974…in the 33 years since, I’ve listened to a lot of live ‘grass. I must tell you, these guys are as good a group as I’ve ever heard, and far better than most. Wow!… They are truly phenomenal musicians as well as individuals and, indeed, are “all-stars”… If you have the opportunity to attend a Detour concert in the days to come I would heartily urge you to go! One contingent of the next generation of Bluegrass tradition bearers has arrived. "
Tim Little, Michigan Bluegrass Newsletter
"Its not 1938, and they’re not a pop-bluegrass hybrid. nor are they neo-traditionalists... Detour, Michigan’s newest, brightest bluegrass band, is a glimpse of the music’s fourth wave… they may be the finest bluegrass band our state has yet produced."
Chris Rietz, Lansing State Journal
