B HAAN Returns to Detroit!

I'm about to paint my face, take the stage and unleash the rage." - B HAAN returns to Detroit this April!
"Since at least 2007, over the years I've played the scene, different bars and clubs ... I've done the I Rock, I've done Harpo's many times... some of the best moments of my career... but an opportunity to perform at the legendary Shelter in downtown Detroit beneath the mighty St. Andrews Hall was too good to pass up! Some of the greatest lyricists of ALL time like Eminem got their start at the Shelter -you know that venue from the movie 8 Mile!?! A historic Detroit venue and a place that's been on my bucket list to play for a very long time. 
Also, for me this is personal! Nearly 4 years ago in 2019 I was at the Shelter for a show to watch some bands but I was very hurt and couldn't really move or enjoy myself, doped out on pain meds just to get through each day. I was facing possible back surgery and feeling like I might not ever get that opportunity ever again.... but ever since I've worked extremely hard to get myself healthy, heal and focused more than ever.  I've got something to prove - Detroit! B mutha fucking HAAN is READYYY! " #itsabouttogetrealloud
B HAAN is playing with National Acts Blaze Ya Dead Homie & Anybody Killa - plus other great local Detroit acts.
