Ingenious

Ingenious was named so because our performances are consistently original, clever and forward thinking. We pride ourselves on breaking the mold and strive to find ways to set ourselves apart from what's currently on the local music scene. We perform covers by popular artists such as Beyonce, Maxwell and Trey Songz as well as original music written by members of the band. We have some of the best m

usicians, producers, and song writers in the Detroit metro area and while it isn't easy to classify us into a single genre, we bring a soulful rhythm that crosses hip-hop, R&B, funk and anything else we decide to surprise you with. Follow us on Facebook for our schedule, news and videos of our performances. Check us out the next time we are out!

MUSICAL GROUP BLACK HAT  RELEASES 2ND  ALBUM; TITLED, HOORAY FOR LOVE

BLACK HAT , is a band founded by Wayne State University professors Frankie the K (Frank Koscielski) and Caroline Maun in 2008 and centered in Clinton Township and Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan.  They recently released their second album, Hooray  for Love.

Lead vocalist and keyboard player Frankie the K is a longtime member of the Detroit music community.  He originally played guitar and keyboards for Badge, among many others and in addition to BLACK HAT  he fronts the rock/blues-inspired group big SHORTY and the eclectic  Dr. Bop!  He studies jazz piano with Detroit Music Award winner Scott Gwinnell.  Vocalist  Maun is an acclaimed poet with three books and numerous publications.  Together they have written a clutch of spirited, enchanting songs which follow an arc of compassion, joy, and not a little lunacy.

BLACK HAT’s  second album Hooray for Love   features the duo amid a wide array of accomplished Detroit musicians.  Jef Reynolds, well-known in the Detroit community for his presence in many area acts as an electric and upright bass player, produced and engineered the album, which was recorded in his studio throughout much of 2012.  Bill Hulet plays drums throughout.  James O’Donnell, best known for his work with R.J. Spangler’s Planet D Nonet, contributes trumpet to several of the tracks.  Ralph Koziarski of The Luddites plays saxophone, flute, and percussion instruments.  Dirty Pirate Hookers' founder and lead guitarist Pat Shanley contributed to several songs, and Dale Robertson of the Dale Robertson Band is particularly haunting on harmonica.

The band's sound is a culmination of classic pop, modern jazz and artful sensibility, claiming inspiration from sources as diverse as Leonard Cohen, Leon Russell, Lou Reed, Talking Heads, and Procol Harum.  Their music has won fans throughout the Detroit area and beyond. BLACK HAT  has appeared at the Cadieux Café, Music Hall Jazz Café, the Scarab Club, the Crazy Wisdom Tea House (Ann Arbor) The Raven (Port Huron) and on the nationally syndicated Mitch Albom Show.

While Frankie and Caroline have been writing songs steadily for the past four years, the special impetus for recording  Hooray for Love  was Frank’s recovery from a serious motorcycle accident in March of 2012.  A life-long rider, Frank survived and fully recovered from his injuries; his helmet probably saved his life.  The planning, performing, and recording of this album is a celebration of second chances and near misses.  Hooray for Love!  

Black Hat, Hooray for Love
