THE FREE BEER STORY
Known in among audiophiles as "Detroit's Most Persistent Band," Free Beer has been kicking around the Detroit music scene since the Summer of 1994.
People have been talking about Free Beer for years. Here's just a sampling of some of their comments ...
"... a wonderfully bizarre entertainment experience! Classic!" -- (a former) METRO TIMES (employee)
"... soooo, you're a five piece?..." (our first booking agent)
"...Free Beer may be the only band in history to do a selection by old school Swedish Punk Band The Hives and follow it up with Folsom Prison Blues by Johnny Cash ..." -- Neil Rubin, THE DETROIT NEWS
"... so what you're saying is I have to pay for the beer? ..." -- Our First Confused Fan
" ... I said turn off the amps or we are taking you downtown ... " -- Royal Oak Police on their third stop at the Free Beer House Party
