HARPER & MIDWEST KIND
Award winning Australian singer, songwriter and virtuoso harmonica player Peter D. Harper, now based in Detroit, Michigan, creates a heady mix of roots music through his creative use of the harmonica, and the haunting drone of the didgeridoo. Known in the music world as “Harper”, he brings forth his latest release Rise Up (Access Records), featuring 10 original songs that reach deep within. Rise Up, which had its debut at #3 on the Billboard Blues Charts, profoundly expresses Harper’s creative use of the harp and the haunting drone of the didgeridoo with underlying meaningful lyrics, which reflect the divisive times we currently live in. Peter D. Harper is known for his powerful soulful voice and a deep, almost mystical approach to the roots genre. This new release is an expansive musical and lyrical journey, stirred up with masterful harp and the deep, woody percussive tones of the didgeridoo. Rise Up is without a doubt Harper’s best work to date and was listed in the Top 20 Albums of 2020 by Blues Blast Magazine. In 2021 Harper and Midwest Kind have been nominated for Best Modern Roots Band and Best Modern Roots Album (Independent Blues Awards). Rise Up follows the highly acclaimed Show Your Love ( 2016) which reached # 3 on the Billboard Blues Charts and stayed in the top ten for an incredible 6 months. Harper is backed by his talented Detroit based touring band Midwest Kind which features Austin Johnson on guitar, Lee Lewis on Bass Guitar, Bud Smith on Drums and Bobbi Llewellyn on backing vocals and percussion. Harper has received an amazing 14 Blues/Roots Music awards (including a Gold Record) in the USA, United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada and achieved 4 Top Ten Billboard Blues Charting albums. He recently won a Detroit Music Award for Outstanding Vocalist.
“Harper is an original, playing the harmonica like an authentic Chicago bluesman, singing about unity and love like a member of peacenik jam band, belting crisp vocals like a straight-up superb classic soul performer, and then pioneering the didgeridoo into these popular forms of modern music. Unique and quality music of this kind is truly a rare treat”. ~Karen Albano/ Modern Rock Review (USA)
“A magnificent, deeply evocative album by a great singer-songwriter and his fantastic band. I give it the highest marks“. ~Claudette Akamatsu, Making a Scene USA

Why is there a difference in price for available seats at The Music Room?
All seating at The Music Room is acquired with a first come, first served basis approach. The Music Room provides all patrons with a live musical experience above and beyond your average concert hall, and supporting this vision are the 4 tiers of available seats at The Music Room. With a nod to classic record sales certification, the 4 tiers are: Diamond, Double Platinum, Platinum, and Gold. Seats range in price based on several factors including artist availability and distance to the stage.
Do you have the same number of seats for each tier?
No. The Diamond tier of seats only has 12 seats available. These seats are 4 top rounds located right at the foot of the stage. You cannot get any closer to the artist than these 12 seats. These are considered premium seats and are usually purchased by the most ardent fans.
The Double Platinum sections features 4 top square tables and one special 2 top rectangle, and there are 14 seats available. Still very close to the stage, these seats provide an exceptional view and personal experience. Table no. 7 is a 2 top rectangle that sits just to the right of the stage and back approximately 6 feet. It is an extremely popular table.
The Platinum section of seats has a mixture of 4 top squares, two 3 high top rounds, and 9 drink rail seats that are bar height. The total number of seats in the Platinum section is 37. These are all excellent seats and reside in the main room. Depending on a viewer’s personal taste, a table, a high top, or a drink rail might be the right choice, but they are all fabulous and unobstructed.
Gold seating is available in the bar area and can be considered first come, first serve general admission. Most of the seats are unobstructed but depending how patrons sit at the bar or high tops, there might be a slight obstruction. Standing room is permitted in the Gold section. The sound is excellent and most Gold level tickets are purchased by patrons that want to be near the bar specifically or by patrons wanting to be further away from the stage by design. Please refer to our pictures to determine if this area is what you are looking for. There are 24 Gold seats available and or Standing Room.
