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…
Boyz II Men
"We were thoroughly impressed with Sound Board at the MotorCity Casino Hotel. It was an intimate, sophisticated venue- the crowd was great, the atmosphere was excellent and we’d absolutely look forward to performing here again."
“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."
“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!”
"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."
"Class act all around"
"The nicest,warmest,outstanding and awesome entertainment venue and people I've ever worked with. I can't wait to come back".
“The venue, the hall, two shows 7:30 PM and 10:30 PM. The exchange between the patrons and performer, I loved it. The feeling from the people to me was home. It was as if I was in their home. This was because of the layout and comfort for the patrons. Thank you.”
The Ohio Players
“Sound Board is one of the finest rooms we've ever played. We look forward to returning for many years to come"
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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!!!"

"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."
"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?"
