Bob Seger’s 10th Studio Album turns 40 May 5, 2018 & WE’RE CELEBRATING by performing it entirely at most of our concerts this year! 

Lookin’ Back is a forward-looking project comprised of seven noteworthy Detroit-area musicians united in our effort to keep the music of Bob Seger performed at its highest level for the legions who profoundly identify with the mans poetry, energy and vast catalog of hits spaning five decades.

While tribute bands typically pay homage to the usual rock-n-roll superstars, the music of Bob Seger was overlooked across the USA, and most shockingly in Southeast Michigan – UNTILL LOOKIN’ BACK!

Since the bands sold out debut on August 29, 2009, Lookin’ Back has headlined all but three of their 139 shows.  Two opening acts for Loverboy & Average White Band.

For the record Lookin’ Back has sold out 30 of 36 ticketed events.  We think that’s a noteworthy stat.

Band highlights are numerous, but a few include: 2011/12 a couple rock-n-roll fantasies were realized by performing with original Silver Bullet Band members Alto Reed & Charlie Martin on four separate occasions.  The band rocked 11,000+ Detroit Pistons fans at the Palace of Auburn Hills, performed for 100,000+ at Howell’s Balloon Festival, and was humbled by 7,000 who came to see us perform “Live Bullet Lives Again” at Pride In Saginaw…..and nearly 5000 at the 51st Annual National Blueberry Festival in South Haven. June 15, 2017 5000+ loved us in Milfords Parks Summer Concert Series at their AMP Theater.

In 2010 Lookin’ Back performed at a book launch in Royal Oak, MI. The book? Travelin’ Man written by Tom Weschler and Gary Graff is a book about life on the road with Bob Seger.  Every year the band celebrates Mr. Seger’s birthday.  Proudly we’re the dedicated tribute doing this for their chosen artist (we know of), but we list these special events partially so we don’t forget. They’re worth noting in chronological order here: 1st Annual Bob Seger (65th) Birthday Bash was at Tanglewood Golf Club, 2nd Annual Bob Seger (66th) Birthday Bash at The Palazzo Grande in Shelby, MI (SOLD OUT), 3rd Annual (67th) Birthday Bash at 59 West End Nightclub in Hartland, MI (SOLD OUT), 4th and 5th Annual (68th/69th) at Wonderland Lanes in Commerce.  (Mr. Seger performed Wonderland in 1967) (BOTH SOLD OUT), 6th Annual (Bob’s BIG 7-0) at Michigan Theatre of Jackson (1300 seats), 7th Annual (71st) Friday, May 6, 2016 in Milford (SOLD OUT). NEXT: The 9th Annual (73rd) returns to Wonderland Lanes May 5, 2018.  TICKETS HERE!

Lookin’ Back books, produces and promotes ALL its own shows, and regularly entertains at municipal festivals, private parties, and has rocked The Sands, The Little River, and Caesars Windsor Casinos.  From beer tents, to casino’s, to performing arts centers, Lookin’ Back always leaves Bob Seger fans VERY HAPPY & WANTING MORE!

Rock N Roll Never Forgets and we plan to help make sure of that.  Here are but a few highlights as to why Bob Seger deserves a world-class Detroit-based tribute, and our undivided attention:

(From Wiki)  In early February of 1974 Mr. Seger first introduced the Silver Bullet Band in Knoxville, Tennessee and toured the nation with BTO & would eventually get picked up by KISS, who was largely responsible for helping Bob get his first gold record.  Bob Seger is Rock-n-Roll is still making history!  Since the mid-70’s Bob Seger has found himself inducted into the Rock-N-Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.  In April of 1976 Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band had their big commercial breakthrough with the album Live Bullet which was recorded over two nights in September 1975 at Detroit’s Cobo Arena. The album remained on Billboard charts for 168 weeks, and peaked at #34 which was Seger’s highest charting album at that time. It also contained a hit rendition of a cover of Ike & Tina Turner’s Nutbush City Limits (#69 US) as well as Seger’s own classic take on life on the road- Turn the Page, and re-released a few of his late 1960’s successful releases Heavy Music and Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man.  Other hits on that record included Katmandu, Get Out Of Denver, Travelin’ Man and Beautiful Loser.


The success of Live Bullet gave rise to his blockbuster follow-up album Night Moves that put Bob Seger squarely and forever after on the national stage. Three-fifths of all initial sales of Live Bullet sold in Detroit-area record stores, and over time would reach 5x Platinum status. The Live Bullet record remains a music critic’s favorite, 44th best selling album of the 70s, and for almost 20 years was one of the top 50 live albums of all time.

Bob Seger’s 1986-1987 American Storm was to be Seger’s last major tour which resulted in 105 shows over nine months, and sold nearly 1.5 million tickets. Most recently, Bob Seger’s Greatest Hits compilation was named the nation’s biggest selling compilation record of all time, selling nearly 10 million copies as of 2010.

With all that said, we’ve dedicated ourselves to delivering for our clients a world-class Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band experience on par with the genuine article we’re sure everyone will appreciate and enjoy.
