At some point in the mid-2000s everyone with a MacBook and a decent set of headphones decided they were going to become a DJ. But when it comes to entrusting the task of getting a party started and keeping it going until the break of dawn (or last call, in most cases), metro Detroit knows better than to relinquish control to just anyone. Enter DJ Danny D — a real crowd-pleaser. Danny D, aka Dan Duchateau, says it’s a natural high to see people dancing to his sets. It is his penchant for good timing that is far and away his greatest gift as an entertainer making his ability to make Top-40 hits sound exciting a close second. “I am so grateful to have come this far with something that started as a hobby in my garage,” Duchateau says. “Always believe in yourself and follow your dreams.”
Shop, dance, drink and eat all in one place. On Saturday evenings, Beacon Park is transformed into a marketplace where visitors can shop local and support a rotating list of Detroit-based makers and entrepreneurs offering everything from fine art to delicious desserts while taking in live music and enjoying dinner and drinks at Lumen Detroit or from several food trucks.
