The Infatuations, a Detroit-based band that plays music inspired by the Motor City, will take the stage Friday, Aug. 29, at 4 p.m. in the Rocket Hall parking lot on Main Campus. The free, public event will continue to 11:30 p.m.

The Infatuations mix pop, rock, soul and funk to recreate signature sounds of Detroit with a modern flair. Their most recent album, Detroit Block Party, is a reflection of their favorite music styles as well as love for their hometown.

Songs like “Tonight We Celebrate,” “Dancin’ On My Knees” and “Livin’ Here Without You” are sure to get people dancing.

In 2014, The Infatuations were nominated for 14 Detroit Music Awards and brought home five, including Outstanding Live Performance.
