Joel “The Party Dude” Morgan

Joel “The Party Dude” Morgan has been a Detroit area institution as far back as anyone should want to remember. Raised on the East Siiide, Joel Morgan’s roots run deep in the rock and roll community, but there’s so much more to Joel…. let’s peel back the layers of the Onion Joel.
Joel “furever” Morgan and his lovely wife, Kim, love animals. They hold a particularly strong love for squirrels and the almighty groundhog. Joel shed a tear watching Twiggy, the waterskiing squirrel. Joel and Kim take vacation every Groundhog Day so that they can enjoy the morning festivities together. Additionally, Joel asked Kim to be his mate at the primate exhibit at the Detroit Zoo.

Joel also loves legos. He has put together some works of art that would make lesser men break from the anxiety of SO MANY pieces that are all the same color.

Joel is wicked smart on movie facts and trivia. He can quote a ton of movies, especially “An Officer and a Gentleman.” Joel is also proficient with a variety of accents and impersonations.

Some of Joel’s best tales include how The Rolling Stones ended up playing his wedding reception and the awkward tale of his first game of truth or dare.

In summation, Joel “Sugar Bear” Morgan is… to quote Winston Churchill, “a riddle,wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.” With 20+ years experience on the streets of the greater metro Detroit area, you will not find a friendlier face than that of Joel Morgan.
