Detroit’s top celebrities and musicians are joining together for charity this holiday season, lending their time and talent to “Christmas in Detroit,” a holiday CD set benefitting the homeless and the needy in the Metro-Detroit area. Christmas in Detroit is a unique 3-CD collection of 42 amazing songs by Detroit artists with recordings of both original material and classic holiday favorites. In addition to songs from the first two “Christmas in Detroit” CDs (1992 and 1993), 17 new tracks have been recorded by artists and personalities like Stewart Francke, The Hell Drivers, Devin Scillian, Jeff Daniels, Larry Lee & Back in the Day, Dave Edwards and rising stars Molly Hunt & Quentin Dennard. The new songs were produced and recorded at Harmonie Park Music by brothers Brian & Mark Pastoria over the last two months, with Mark mixing most of the 17 new songs.
“We received overwhelming interest from local musicians to take part in Christmas in Detroit. Their generosity is inspiring,” said Brian Pastoria, co-founder of Harmonie Park and Christmas in Detroit. “Some of these artists are household names. Others are soon to be.”
