Gallery | The Maccabees: Live In Detroit w/ Gambles

One photographer and an amazing band. From London, the legendary Maccabees played The Magic Bag in Detroit. Their latest album, Marks to Prove It, released with Communion Music has once again proved that the band is full of extraordinary things.

Paired with the soulful indie-rock of The Maccabees, Gambles opened the show. If you look him up online you’ll find a parade of interviews and an empty Soundcloud account with over 50K followers, but you really have to dig to hear his music. Once you find his charming song Angel on YouTube channel, you’re infused with a dramatic acoustic confession of a songwriter with a great gift.

Enjoy some photos from the show, once again by the ever talented, Janine VanOostrom.

Hunny

From Southern California, Jason, Jake, Jacob, Gregory, Kevin and Joey are Hunny. Formed in 2014, the pop-rock band opened the show. The band is in the midst of a tour with a few more Canadian stops in Winnipeg at The Garrick and Vancouver.
