Official website 

Whiplash is dedicated to bringing live classic rock to the people of metro Detroit.  We search the classic rock songbook from A (Alice Cooper) to Z (Ziggy Stardust) to bring you songs that you don't hear on the radio every day.  We play B-sides and forgotten gems that will keep your party rocking.  We love the golden age of classic rock (Doors, The Who, Beatles, Cream) but we also pay tribute to our roots with songs from Chuck Berry, Johnny Rivers, and Elvis.  Whiplash Acoustic presents a similar set list with an emphasis on acoustic tunes from the likes of Cat Stevens, Buffalo Springfield, Van Morrison and Bob Dylan.
