Vinyl underground

Detroit's Premier Party Band


We are The vinyl underground


Composed of five of Detroit's most decorated musicians, The Vinyl Underground boasts a range of material unmatched by any other band in the Midwest. The Vinyl Underground has performed at the North American Auto Show for 5 consecutive years, Autorama, The Motor City Casino, The Gem Theater and private parties from Traverse City to West Virginia. 

Fronted by national and local award-winning singer, Chris McCall, the Vinyl Underground easily morphs into the band you need for the event you are hosting. Whether you are hosting a black tie event and need sophisticated music with a stand up bass, soaring vocals, horns and piano or a dance party featuring classic rock to contemporary covers including a wide range of Motown, the Vinyl Underground is your band. 

There are few bands that can please nearly every age group in one night. We bring authenticity and energy to every song we play and do not play to pre-recorded music like so many bands are doing now. We are 100% live and pride ourselves on putting on a rock show all night, making our audience happy and keeping them on the dance floor. We treat every song, from Led Zeppelin to Adele or Sinatra to the Black Keys like a gift of experience. 

We know that when you hire a band you are hoping for a particular experience, a night of dancing, a night to remember, a good time with friends and family. We will work with you to find out what your entertainment needs are, and you'll be glad you chose the Vinyl Underground.

We could not have had a better band for the wedding. We were looking for a band that could hit on classic rock, some old Motown and mix in some newer material to keep everyone interested and dancing. They had the dance floor packed from beginning to end. The musicianship of this band is incredible not to mention the vocal ability. Absolutely fantastic! I received so much positive feedback from guests. They are still talking about it. They will surely get some contact for future events from the performance. I cannot thank them enough.......K.

Keith, Chris and the band were great to deal with and provided awesome entertainment for my wedding. They had people from 3 years old to 75 years old dancing. I would highly recommend them for any event.

Great communication, learned new songs, even a John Legend song, and did a great job. They were professional, punctual, and their set lists were great. We let them feed off the energy of the crowd in regards to choosing songs and they did a great job. Still hearing good feedback from our guests. Highly recommend them.

WEDDING IN DETROIT, MI // 08.31.2013

I booked Vinyl Underground for my wedding and they were excellent. They played a wide range of songs and were good at everything. Throughout the night many guests complimented the band sometimes saying they sounded just like the original song. I live out of state and had to plan my wedding long distance but Chris was always very responsive to my emails and promptly answered all my questions. They even learned my first dance song just for my wedding. Our evening started with smooth Jazz during dinner and transitioned into classic and modern rock for dancing and they rocked. Frank Sinatra, Led Zepplin, Rush, The Black Keys, it all sounded great.

We are so happy we decided to book Vinyl Underground for our wedding! They played a wide variety of music, took special requests, and learned songs specifically for our event. Each band member is highly talented and professional. Our guests continue to compliment us on our band selection, even weeks afterward! We highly recommend Vinyl Underground to anyone looking for a band.

The band (Chris) was very responsive and easy to work with on the pre-show details. They arrived on time and did exactly what we requested in terms of the play list. They were friendly and easy to work with. My guests were very pleased with the band--great song selection, including some great deep cuts (e.g. Beatles Dear Prudence). All in all, a great choice and we were very pleased.

- David C


They were very easy to work with and amazing at our wedding! We loved their performance and would absolutely recommend them to anyone. Our guests continue to rave about them and had so much fun dancing! They were extremely entertaining, accommodating and professional. They were wonderful and would be the perfect band for any event!

- Brooke M


Band was very professional, waited in hall until speeches were through. Stayed and played until guests cleared and asked if they could leave before they packed up. They learned special songs for us and just capped of the night beautifully. I would love to hire them again and look forward to hearing them play a show sometime.

- Christine H


I was very pleased with the Vinyl Underground. They rocked the house (or tent rather) at my husband's 50th birthday party in June 2010. Our guests all commented on their breadth of songs and the excellent guitars and singing. I'd hire them again in a moment and highly recommend this group to others.
