The Detroit Cobras are set to rock the Riverside

“What the Detroit Cobras peddle is rock & roll, just as raw and funky as it was originally intended.” – Allmusic.com

On Friday 25th October the Detroit Cobras European tour will be stopping off at Riverside with support from The Peawees.

Blurring the lines between R&B and R&R and soul, The Detroit Cobras are the go-to party band for those in the know. Singer Rachel Nagy and guitarist Mary Ramirez are the bad girls by the exit doors at the school dance, all leather and heels, sneaking smokes and passing the flask.

Surrounding themselves with a rotating cast of some of Motown’s finest rockers, The Detroit Cobras specialise in unearthing and reinvigorating the hits, near hits and sometimes total misses from the deep and groovy history of soul, and making them their own. The Detroit Cobras albums are like a secret decoder ring that helps lead the way to a better, more soulful forgotten world.
