Free concert tonight at Hard Rock Cafe

As part of its Thursday evening concert series, Detroit's Hard Rock Cafe welcomes Charlie Martin and his band tonight at its downtown location.

Detroit's Hard Rock Cafe

The show - which is set to run from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm - is free, and is one of a multitude of summer events being held at Detroit's infant gathering spot,
Campus Martius Park.

Martin, the former drummer of Bob Seger's Silver Bullet Band, is considered by many to be one of the best drummers of all time. He is also a successful vocalist.

A member of the Silver Bullet from 1974 to 1978, Martin unexpectantly left his fellow bandmates in the late 1970s after he was struck by a car and, tragically, paralyzed from the waist down. His accident has not kept him from his love of music, though; he continues to play area establishments, such as his stint at the Hard Rock tonight.

The Hard Rock Cafe is located at 45 Monroe Street in downtown Detroit. Visit the
Hard Rock's website for dinner and drink specials, or for more information on its Thursday summer concert series.
