GRiZ and The Detroit Bad Boys at CounterPoint Music Festival May 03 2014

 

Detroit's own GRiZ took the stage to perform for over 10,000 funky fans at CounterPoint Music Festival this past weekend. This high-rising young artist tears through conventional music barriers taking you on a soulfully crafted journey of live saxophone funk and hip-hop inspired electronica sounds with groovy undertone. 

 

GRiZ exploded at the festival Saturday night with his incredible live performance and the crowd went crazy. Repping his heart on his sleeve with the Detroit Bad Boys flag flown high and proud all weekend, it is safe to say Detroit stood strong at CounterPoint Music Festival.

The Boys Are Back April 15 2014

The iconic Detroit Bad Boys logo was created in late 1988 by Billy Berris, president of The Athletic Supporter Ltd., a Farmington Hills, Michigan based silkscreen T-shirt company.

This copyrighted design, with a skull-and crossbones motif over a basketball with the words “Detroit Bad Boys” was a collaboration with his art director Robin Brant. 

The Detroit Pistons acquired the reputation as being “Bad Boys”  late in the 1987-88 season.  They entered training camp in the 88-89 season with a renewed focus and determination “to win it all.”  The key players established a set of rules and a style of play that demanded physical and mental toughness from every teammate. Every player had a role and they “stuck to the script.”  The “Bad Boys” were born and the rest is history.

The Detroit Bad Boys won  back-to back championships in 1989 and 1990. The Bad Boys are the Detroit Pistons; they were the “baddest” team in the National Basketball Association.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the 1989-90 Detroit Pistons "Bad Boys" Championship season. Be on the lookout for Detroit Bad Boys Brand collaborations, exclusives and promotions.
