DETROIT - Sulaiman Mausi, Vice President of Detroit-based and family run company, The Right Productions, the company that manages Chene Park is excited about celebrating the park's 25 years as a summertime jewel in the city. "Last week we got off to an amazing start. We normally don't reach the 22,000 person mark until almost three weeks into the season. This year we have done in 5 days what normally takes us 21 days to do. Jill Scott and Dwele, Ne-yo, The First Annual Detroit Blues Festival, and The White Party were all smashing successes. We are l
ooking to continue the momentum the entire summer."
