More about the Detroit Crew!

Dwight Bailey, although he was born in Detroit and is very proud of his childhood connection to the “Motor City”, he credits much of his musical development to the heavy influence of musicians based in Central Ohio.  During his teenage years Dwight began playing predominately gospel and worked with artist like Bobby Jones, LaShaun Pace, Dawkins & Dawkins, Anointed, Kim Rutherford and Douglas Miller. It wasn't until his college years, at The Ohio State University that he was inspired to learn more about jazz and other styles of music. He began to study the double bass with several teachers such as Eddie Brookshire, Dr. Milton Ruffin, Dr. Paul Robinson, Doug Richeson, Roger Hines & Dr. Solona Lee (American School of Double Bass)

Dwight has spent the last several years touring all over the world and has performed on some of the most prestigious platforms in music, such as the Monterey Bay Blues/Jazz Festival, the North Sea Jazz Festival, The London Jazz Festival, Carnegie Hall and the Primivera Music Festival, to name a few. He has held down the low end at the world famous Hollywood Bowl for artist like the Blind Boys of Alabama, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Terence Blanchard, Nicholas Payton, Arturo Sandoval, Anthony Hamilton, TelMary, Marcus Belgrave and his boss of 3 years, 6-time Grammy Award Winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Dr. John. Today, he continues to tour with various artists and enjoys playing the local scenes in both Ohio and Michigan.

 

Joan Belgrave, the Grammy-considered singer, songwriter, and producer has recorded her fifth solo album, for 2018 release. Featuring contributions from Regina Carter, Kirk Lightsey and Ali Jackson, Her sold out July, 2017 appearance at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola was received with standing ovations! Based in New York and Detroit, Joan is the consummate vocalist, equally adept with big band, blues, standards, gospel and contemporary R&B alike, while holding fans and critics rapt at prestigious venues like the Detroit Opera House, New Jersey PAC, New York’s Metropolitan Room, Jazz Standard, and Brooklyn Academy of Music, and in Los Angeles Catalina's,  "Belgrave's voice is so soothing and sexy, she could give a pit bull goose bumps" the Detroit Metro Times raved while jazzREVIEW has called her "a class act and a beautiful talent."  NY’s Amsterdam News says “ “a warm energetic timbre that ignites attention” The artist herself explains it best: "I love singing with every fiber of my body. I have to sing because singing is what I am." 

 The trajectory Joan has followed from singing gospel in the Baptist church as a young girl and entertaining family friends in Ann Arbor, Michigan to becoming a critically acclaimed performer who's delighted sold-out crowds across the globe traces a fascinating course. Joan's mother, who also sang, introduced her to classical baritone vocalist, Dr. Willis Patterson. "He took me under his wing and trained my voice," she says. Moving to Hollywood, Joan pursued a professional singing career but soon shelved her musical aspirations in order to raise her three children. She reached a critical juncture when her father passed away. "I went back to Michigan and my mom asked me to sing at the funeral," she says. "I hadn't sung publicly for 15 years. When I went back to California, it was almost like a waterfall had opened up. I couldn't stop singing if I wanted to."  By the late-'90s, Joan had fully immersed herself in music. She began writing songs and recorded Emotions Blue (1998), her tribute to Billie Holiday. "I really related to her because I was hurting at the time," she says. Joan's chameleonic musicality fueled her follow-up Variations (2005). "It was a variety of me," she explains about the album's concept. "I had blues, gospel, jazz, and R&B on there. I never want to limit myself to any one genre because I am not just a jazz singer. I'm a singer."

 Relocating to Detroit, Joan met her musical soul mate, legendary, the late Jazz Legend trumpeter Marcus Belgrave. He bought three copies of Emotions Blue and Variations after hearing her sing during a jam session at Bert's Marketplace. "I didn't know who Marcus was when I met him," she confides. At the time, Joan was producing a concert series and hired Marcus to “open” the show with a Ray Charles ensemble. Their professional partnership gradually grew into a romantic relationship. The couple wed in 2007 and released their first of two collaborations with Preservation Hall’s, New Orleans saxophonist Charlie Gabriel, You Don’t Know Me: A Tribute to New Orleans, Ray Charles, and the Great Ladies of Song (2007). "Marcus was the last living member of Ray Charles' original band," Joan explains. "We had a Louis Armstrong show and a New Orleans show. Marcus wanted to do something for Ray." The trio followed up with Marcus, Charlie, and Joan … Once Again (2009) where Joan's voice duly complemented the superb musicality of the album's two jazz legends.

 Joan resumed her solo career with Excitable (2009, which Detroit-based Blue Rivers Records re-released in 2014 along with a video for Joan's smooth and soulful re-recording of her self-penned "Hey Love" (2013). She released Merry Christmas Baby (2014), recorded "Please Send Me Someone to Love" for Blue Note Records president Don Was, and even ventured into techno with producer Carl Craig on Tribe's "Where Am I" (2009) A European smash hit. In between headlining the Detroit International Jazz Festival, Toronto Jazz Festival, Ontario Jazz Festival, Ascona Jazz Festival in Switzerland, and the annual Don Was Detroit All Star Revue concert, in addition to being a lead vocalist with the Motown Legends Gospel Choir.  Whether onstage or in the studio, Joan Belgrave reaches listeners through a voice that holds a world of musical wonders. Her thrilling versatility and passion for music shines through every note she sings. "No matter what's going on, the music is my savior," she says. "It always has been." music takes Ms. Belgrave to new heights. Join her for the flight!
