The multi-instrumentalist and rock, pop and blues music pioneer Edgar Winter will heat up the Detroit Riverfront Plaza on Friday, September 11 for the sixth concert in the 2009 Rockin’ on the Riverfront concert series, sponsored by Andiamo Detroit Riverfront and in partnership with Detroit’s Classic Rock Station 94.7 WCSX-FM.

Winter is still jamming as hard and heavy as ever and has been for more than 35 years. His hits “Frankenstein” and “Free Ride” captured an era in pop history by fusing blues with rock. He continues to defy musical trends with his latest CD, Rebel Road.
Mark “The Paz Man” Pasman, host of 94.7 WCSX’s “The Motor City Blues Project” and guitarist for some of Detrot’s top bands, will open the show at 8 p.m. Edgar Winter will take the stage from approximately 9 p.m. – 10:30 p.m.

To celebrate the end of this year’s free Rockin’ on the Riverfront concert series, Andiamo and WCSX are asking concert goers to make a donation to the Capuchin Soup Kitchen as they enter the Detroit Riverfront Plaza. Every $2 donated will feed one meal to a person in need.

Admission to the concerts is free and no advance tickets are necessary. Viewing space will be on a first-come, first-serve basis and people are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs and blankets. In addition, boaters on the Detroit River are invited to anchor near the riverfront and enjoy the view of the stage from the water.

Food and refreshment concessions from Andiamo Detroit Riverfront will be available at several locations on the plaza. Outside food, beverages or coolers will not be permitted. Andiamo Detroit Riverfront will accept dinner reservations before and after the concert and invites guests to take advantage of its gorgeous outdoor patio overlooking the Detroit River.

Convenient parking is available for $5 per vehicle at the GM surface lot at the intersection of St. Antoine and Atwater, adjacent to the GM Renaissance Center.
