Rockin’ on the Riverfront

Legendary rocker Rick Derringer and his band opened the 3rd annual Rockin’ on the Riverfront concert series on July 24 behind the Wintergarden at the Renaissance Center in downtown Detroit. Derringer, who also recorded and toured for other bands like Steely Dan, covered more than 30 years of songs, including “Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo” and “Hang On Sloopy.” Upcoming acts for Rockin’ on the Riverfront, held every Friday through Sept. 4, include Leon Russell, Foghat, and Edgar Winter.
