Dearborn, Michigan, USA

We sound like a Social Distortion and the Pogues went out drinking, spent all night listening to Johnny Cash and Bruce Springstein records, wrote a bunch of songs and then found 4 folk musicians from Detroit to perform them.


Greetings and FOLK YOU! We are the raucous folk/punk adventure known as GHOST CITY SEARCHLIGHT. We pride ourselves in high energy folk music fueled with punk rhythm guitar, banjo picking and sexy spaghetti-western solos; driven by a pounding floor tom, and kept from spinning off the road by a majestically humming accordion.

All that energy and we can still take pride in being the most punctual and easy going band that I know. We'd love to come and play for you some time! Contact us here or via any of the following:
