Mitch Ryder Putting Detroit Back To Work

For more than 4 decades, Mitch Ryder has been one of the gritty rock standard bearers of Detroit music.¬† Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels, recorded several hit records¬† in the mid to late 1960s, most notably “Devil with a Blue Dress On”, their highest-charting single at #4, as well as “Sock It to Me-Baby!”, a #6 hit in 1967, and “Jenny Take a Ride!”, which reached #10 in 1965.¬† Mitch also maintains a huge following in Europe and Germany in particular.

A little know fact is that Winona Ryder took “Ryder” as a stage name, after seeing a Mitch Ryder album in her father’s collection.

Mitch Ryder will share the stage at the Fillmore Detroit Friday November 23rd with Alto Reed’s All Stars and Grand Funk Railroads Mark Farner, for “Rock For Jobs”, a benefit concert for Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit’s job training, seo services and placement programs.

Tickets for the show start at just $10 and are available here.

I spoke with Mitch about the need for jobs and the concert.
