DETENTION is a high-energy pop-punk/alt-rock band of teens from Akron, Ohio. They crushed the main stage at the local PorchRokr in Highland Square with an estimated 2,000+ fans crowd surfing and singing the lyrics (pictured below). The young band just wrapped three of Elevation Group’s “Wonder” festivals in Indianapolis, Cleveland, and Columbus among headliners Duran Duran, Lorde, and the Lumineers. Their latest single ‘Good + Ready’ was a top played track on Faction Punk on Sirius XM, which follows-up heavy rotation of ’56 Minutes’. They won “Best Punk Band” by the Cleveland Music Awards and headlined DEVO’s “Devotional” with band members Mark Mothersbaugh and Gerald Casale at the Beachland Ballroom.
DETENTION includes lead singer Elliott Carter (18), guitarist Evan Cox (15), bassist Fritz Dannemiller (19), and drummer Luke Konopka (16).
