Downtown Wyandotte will be the host for Rockin’ NYE 2020 presented by Community Choice Credit Union. Rockin’ NYE is one of, if not the largest, New Year’s Eve celebration in Metro Detroit. Plus, we are adding two stages and expanding the size of the heated tent. Local bands and DJ Money Mic will entertain the crowd inside the tent and outside on the stage.
BRETT SCALLIONS of FUEL will rock the stage inside the heated tent along with another great Detroit native alternative rock band, SPONGE. The bands will head to the outdoor stage to ring in the New Year at the Rockin' NYE Ball Drop! More bands to be announced. There is a $15 concert ticket required for the tent, along with everyone must be 21+ to enter. Outdoor concerts and events are free.
The event’s main attraction is the one of kind New Year’s Eve ball, with color changing and chasing LED lights. The evening will culminate with a Time Square style ball drop at 9 p.m. for families and again at the stroke of midnight.
The Community Choice Credit Union heated tent will have FREE kids activities which will include; face painting, crafts, photo booth and games. The first 250 kids will receive a Community Choice Credit Union glow wand! Rockin’ NYE will also have food trucks, indoor and outdoor bars featuring Pabst Blue Ribbon, Tito's Handmade Vodka and Jim Beam.
ABOUT THE BANDS:
FUEL signed with Sony Records in 1998 and released their critically lauded, debut album Sunburn with the massive hit single “Shimmer”. Their second album Something Like Human took the band to a new level of stardom, hitting multi-platinum status driven by the singles “Innocent” and “Hemorrhage”, which remained at #1 for ten weeks. In 2003, Fuel released their third record Natural Selection, and found success at radio again with the hit song “Falls On Me”. At that point, the band had sold over 3.5 million records in the U.S alone, and had scored a trio of releases with top five singles. The band had headlined its own sold out tours, as well as, supporting the likes of Aerosmith and Kid Rock. In 2014, Fuel released "Puppet Strings" on MRI/Red. Catapulted by the first single, the driving, hypnotic “Soul To Preach To”, the album entered the Billboard rock charts at #1. The fans spoke loud and clear to the band and “Cold Summer” became the second single.
SPONGE has gained widespread notoriety with their debut album Rotting Piñata. Their hits are still played on mainstream rock stations around the country including "Plowed", "Molly" (16 Candles Down the Drain) "Wax Ecstatic" and "Have You Seen Mary”.
HISTORY OF ROCKIN' NYE:
Vin Dombroski, frontman of Sponge, is a Detroit native that wandered into Wyandotte in Fall of 2016. He saw the potential of hosting a yearly New Year's Eve event. He partnered with 360 Event Productions and together they approached the City of Wyandotte about hosting a large scale New Year's Eve event on Biddle Ave! The City of Wyandotte, Mayor Joe Peterson and the Wyandotte DDA were in full support to bring this new and exciting event to Wyandotte. The first year over 10,000 people gathered in the streets to celebrate! Sponge actively performs around the US. While on the road, Vinnie reaches out to fellow rockers and invites them to perform at Rockin' NYE. In 2018, Wally Palmer of The Romantics was a special guest. This year, Brett Scallions, frontman of Fuel is joining Sponge onstage to perform all the hits!
