When you drop a 3 million dollar sound system into a fresh, intimate venue, you get shows where the line between performer and audience becomes blurred.  Where both star and fan are inspired to give it their all. In short, you get Sound Board, a place where every show is a legendary one.  But don’t take our word for it…

Rick Springfield

"Great room, great sound system, and great people!"

The Whispers

"We love this venue and the people that work there, our fans love being so close to the performance! Look forward to next year."

Kathy Griffin

"Thanks to the awesome and open minded audience at Motor City Sound Board last night. It's good to know an audience can withstand that many curse words within a two hour period."

Bruce Bruce

"What a place! Love the venue AND the audience. A real class act!"

Chaunte Wayans

"The Sound Board Room is by far one of my favorite venues to perform at. Great staff, great crowd, pretty much anything you could ask for in a place they do and are great at it. Can't wait to come back."

Chrisette Michele

"And it suddenly occurred to me that I haven't eaten today. Goodnight Detroit. I adored you. Thank you for having me. Time for Room Service."

Chris Isaak

"We’re here at MotorCity Casino, we’re having a ball, we’re not ice skating we’re doing a Christmas show. Rock N Roll Baby!"

Anjelah Johnson

"The Sound Board is a great room! So glad I got a chance to perform there and bring my friend Mal Hall too. Thank you MotorCity Casino for having us."

Boyz II Men

"We had a great time performing for our Detroit fans at Sound Board at the MotorCity Casino! Thank you all for coming out—we hope to see you again soon!"


"Amazing night. Amazing crowd. Thank you Motor City for reminding us why we LOVE to play Detroit!"

Roger Hodgson

"First time back in Detroit in a long time. The city has been through a lot but the spirit of the people shone through tonight - fabulous audience, hope to return."

Musiq Soulchild

“Performing at the Sound Board was like being in an electrical power house. The Detroit fans were alive and well into the show. I felt like everyone knew all my songs and the venue's sound system added to my Soulful vibe.  I believe that this was my first time performing at such an electrifying venue. I'm looking forward to returning soon."

The Manhattan Transfer

"We recently played the Sound Board at the Motor City Casino in (where else?) Detroit, Michigan.  The Sound Board is a perfect example of the real state of the art performing venues beginning to emerge in the US.  We played there about 3 weeks ago, and had a fabulous experience.  It's a genuine pleasure to perform in a venue that is designed for great sound, and most certainly overshadows the older casino showroom venues.  My Manhattan Transfer partners and I had a ball performing there, and would come back in a heartbeat.  I wish there were more venues like that in the US.  And, oh yes, they are a great bunch of folk to work for-  great food, great treatment, right in the heart of the Motor City."  

Tim Hauser

Patti Labelle

“Sound Board is a beautiful venue with a great staff and I really enjoyed performing there!  And I love all of my Detroit family, so I look forward to coming back soon!”

Rachelle Ferrell

"A beautiful venue of just the right size and aesthetic. A warm, professional, smooth and classy operation... Inside and out!"

Grand Funk Railroad

"We had a GREAT night March 29, 2012. The Sound Board is an incredible venue to play with the band up close and personal with the audience. Lights, sound, and stage are top notch and the staff/crew professional and a delight to work with. Looking forward to the next time."  

Don Brewer

Eddie Griffin

"Class act all around"

Angie Stone

"The nicest,warmest,outstanding and awesome entertainment venue and people I've ever worked with. I can't wait to come back".

James"Diamond" Williams

Little Anthony

"It was something! Many people have told me it was the best sound system they've ever heard. And the surroundings--it was Lincoln Center and the Hard Rock Cafe, all mixed together."

38 Special

"We came in early that afternoon to do a sound check and immediately noticed the commitment to detail and outlay put into the venue. It was everything...artist and fan-oriented, with superior lights and sound. Someone had made sure this was going to be a great experience. And the staff couldn't have been more gracious, always appreciated by touring groups. We were genuinely impressed. The show that night was over and above our expectations, a real celebration."

Don Barnes

The Whispers

"The Whispers thoroughly enjoyed playing the Sound Board Theater at MotorCity. Aside from being very beautiful, the atmosphere is perfect for putting on the kind of show we do. We can't wait to play it again."

Will Downing

"My experience at the MotorCity was amazing, I enjoyed every aspect. From the Unbelievable Hotel to the Roof Top restaurant. I've yet to mention  the SOUND BOARD theater which I found to be an amazing feeling room. I say feeling because as a performer I like to feel comfortable on stage and I felt very much at home on that stage. I hope to be invited back to experience that feeling again!!!"

Dennis Edwards & The Temptations Review

"It was a tremendous place to work and stay, it's always good to come home due to the history that is shared in Detroit for the Temptations throughout the years!"

Tim Allen

"Performing at the Sound Board was a great experience for me.  The venue was state of the art, the staff was top-notch and a great audience showed up.  What more could a comic want... except maybe some excellent food.  Oh yeah, had that too!"

Tower of Power

“Performing at the Sound Board in Detroit's MotorCity Casino is a dream come true for me. I finally have a world class venue in the city I grew up in. The Sound Board has the excitement of playing at a big rock arena with the intimacy of a great nightclub. The staff & management are great, the rooms are plush, what more could I ask for."

Emilio Castillo

Al Jarreau

"The designers of this venue got it right. It's a great room where artist and audience can share an evening together. The space is intimate and close, but with the excitement of an arena. Thanks to everyone at MotorCity Casino for all the care and hospitality. When can I return?"
