We gather in many places, but routinely at Shield’s of Southfield two-three times a month from 1-3:30 p.m. – normally the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month. We are proud to host the finest musicians of these genres in the Detroit, Toledo, and Ann Arbor areas.

Shield’s of Southfield is located at 25101 Telegraph Road (at 10 Mile) in Southfield, 48033. We do not take reservations and please do not call the venue about our concerts. There is a $10 entertainment charge at the door which covers the cost of these fine musicians and their bands.


Trumpet player Trudell was the lead trumpet player for Motown Records, meaning he’s worked with big names like Diana Ross, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, the Four Tops and others. He also sat in with big bands led by Tommy Dorsey, Bob Crosby and more. These days, he performs in clubs around town and is a regular at the Detroit Jazz Festival at Hart Plaza over Labor Day weekend.
