Locally they have appeared with The Brothers Groove, Johnnie Bassett and the Blues Insurgents, Thornetta Davis, Root Doctor and Alexander Zonjic.

Segerfile

A musical feast!
What does it take to back up one of the biggest and best voices in rock? To create new arrangements for some of the most popular songs of our time? And add muscle, oomph and pure pleasure for more than half a million fans over 60 shows?

To do all that, you've gotta be the Motor City Horns -- Mark Byerly, Bob Jenson, Keith Kaminski and John Rutherford.

If you heard them with touring with Bob Seger, you know they pack a punch. Now you can hear them with some of Detroit's best musicians, including 14 guest vocalists.

Give a listen and you'll see exactly what Seger meant when he said this about the Motor City Horns: "They're like our turbocharger -- when we really want to shift into triple digits, we get the horns out."

Local Boys represents almost two years of recording and production, and spans a wide range of musical styles. The up-tempo numbers -- like "Kissing My Love" with Thornetta Davis and The Brothers Groove, or "If You Love Somebody" with Tino Martin Gross and The Howling Diablos -- have been burning my car stereo speakers all summer.

You'll also hear blues, worldbeat that will sweep you off your feet (it may be a federal crime to listen to "Appollonia" in a seated position) and even an old Duke Ellington number, "The Mooche," recorded by MCH with The Hot Club of Detroit.

That just scratches the surfaces. Listen to the samples, and see for yourself.

One good thing about getting the disk from CDBaby – it has track that will blow away every Seger fan: "Lucifer" by the Motor City Horns and Barb Payton, one of Seger's amazing backup singers. Seger's music is not licensed for the Internet – so the only way to get this track is to buy the physical disk here CDBaby

Wherever you buy it, you’re gonna love it. After all, how many groups can take a classic, powerful Seger song and just knock it out of the park? Not many that I know. And when Seger himself uses words like "turbocharger" to describe your music, you know you're good.
