Jim Gallert, of Detroit Music History, has been researching, interviewing musicians, and writing about Detroit music for 35 years. In this talk, Jim delves into early Detroit blues, bands,
and ballrooms. He will review the rise of contact dancing, and the many new ballrooms to support this radical new form of entertainment. Recordings of Detroit ragtime pioneers, blues
musicians, and early dance bands are featured. Generously sponsored by Pomeroy Living.
