Live Review: Mac Saturn-St. Andrews Hall, Detroit – November 25, 2022
Mac Saturn played to a sold-out hometown Detroit crowd on Black Friday supporting their latest EP release Until the Money Runs Out. After being on the road across North America for almost a year, supporting the Black Crowes on their 30th anniversary Shake Your Money Maker Tour and Dirty Honey’s California Dreamin’ Tour, the Mac Saturn boys were finally home. At the gala event, Drey Skonie and The Klouds were the openers.
Mac Saturn looks a bit different then when they started in 2014. The band replaced Brett Dooge with Mike Moody on lead guitar and took Carson Macc off the drums, replacing him with Angelo Coppola. One thing has stayed the same is the music–very rock & roll-driven with hints of pop, Motown, and funk.
The boys were welcomed with thunderous cheers when they took the stage shortly after 9:30. They opened with their hit single “Diamonds”, featuring snappy beats and guitar riffs, before lead singer Carson Macc made a grand entrance decked out in red pants and a fur coat. They followed with “Paradiso” and a fan favorite “Get On The Phone”. And, what Detroit show would be complete without a little love for Mr. Bob Seger? Mac Saturn played a wonderful Sunspot Baby cover.
I really enjoy the creative outlet that photography brings me and I have had a love for music ever since I was a little kid. I'm not musically inclined what-so-ever so it seemed like the perfect fit to document the music through photography.
