DOOP & THE INSIDE OUTLAWS TO PERFORM AT THE 27TH DOWNTOWN HOEDOWN
Get ready to hear Americana-Detroit style when Doop & The Inside Outlaws take the stage for their first performance at the Downtown Hoedown, the annual Country Music festival. The free festival runs from May 15-17 at Hart Plaza. Doop & The Inside Outlaws will perform on Sunday, May 17 at 3pm on the Plaza Stage.
Doop is grateful about being invited to play the festival alongside the likes of such legendary country artists as Willie Nelson, who is headlining the festival this year. “We are really excited to play the Hoedown and hope that we put on a good, free show for all the people that spend their hard earned money to come see us during the year.”
The Downtown Hoedown was established in 1983 and is widely recognized as the largest Country Music Festival of its kind in the world. Hosted by 99.5 WYCD, Detroit's Best Country, the Hoedown is regarded by the Country Music Industry as a premier showcase opportunity for new and established artists. Located at Hart Plaza in the heart of downtown Detroit, the event attracts hundreds of thousands of enthusiastic country music fans from the Midwest and beyond.
Doop & The Inside Outlaws hail from downriver Detroit enclave of River Rouge. A firefighter by day and singer/songwriter by night, Don “Doop” Duprie and his band play a mix of country and rock n’ roll that comes straight from the soul. They recently received three country nominations in the Detroit Music Awards and their debut album “Blood River” was named one of the top local records of 2008 by the Metro Times. The album was highly recognized by radio stations and music websites worldwide.
Doop has just finished recording his follow-up album at Ghetto Recorders studio with engineer/producer Jim Diamond. The new album entitled “Everett Belcher” will be released this summer. It also features many of city’s hardest working musicians helping him out including; Eddie Baranek (The Sights), Bobby Emmett, Dave Shettler (SSM), Chris Codish, Whitey Morgan, Pete Ballard, Matt Dmits and Ty Stone. Doop is dedicating the album “to all the hard-working people in this town that spent the better parts of their lives busting their asses only to see it all fall apart.”
