From Ted Nugent's Amboy Dukes, The MC5, Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels, Alice Cooper, Bob Seger, Grand Funk Railroad (from not too far away Flint, Michigan), Iggy Pop and The Stooges in the mid to late 60's all the way to The White Stripes, and more recently The Muggs and The Detroit Cobras have all made their mark on heavy music throughout the past five decades.
While they are still apparently in the formative stage, with no album released as of this writing, Tripp 'N Dixie, from the small Detroit suburb of Clarkston are apparently starting to make waves in their local scene, garnering positive reviews opening up for larger acts such as The Parlor Mob, Taddy Porter and Saving Abel with their guitar driven retro hard rock influenced music.
Although there isn't much info provided on their online bio, simply stating they are a "Four-piece Rock 'N' Roll group influenced by classic rock and blues with a modern edgy vibe", their music speaks for itself. Not too dissimilar to what rising stars in the making Rival Sons have produced on their excellent sophomore offering 'Pressure & Time', if they keep on the path they're going they very well may prove to have their own fervent following in the not too distant future.
