Detroit might be close to 1,500 miles from the Caribbean, but that doesn’t mean we can’t bring the Caribbean to the Beach at Campus Martius Park.

Every Friday night throughout the summer Campus Martius will have local artists play Caribbean-style music at the Beach.

The live concerts will be from 5:30 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. and will begin on Friday, June 16 and will go through August 18.

The Marketing Associates Beach Party is presented by Absopure.

“We’re excited to be the title sponsor of this year’s Beach Parties in Campus Martius,” said Mark Petroff, President and CEO of Marketing Associates. “What better way to help celebrate MA’s 50th anniversary than to spend Friday evenings on the beach in this beautiful park in the heart of the city?”

Here is the line up for the next nine weeks:

June 16: King Mellowman and the Mellowmakers

June 23: Ras Kente and the Take No Prisoners Posse

June 30: Universal Xpression

July 7: The Flex Crew from Columbus OH

July 14: Roots Vibration

July 21: Anthem Band
