Grosse Pointe-bred DJ Claude VonStroke (real name Barclay Crenshaw) has a lot of love for Detroit. And now, Claude VonStroke can cross "Official DJ for the Detroit Pistons" off of his bucket list as he returns home to perform the half-time show at today's game.

Claude VonStroke will be live streaming the half-time show today, starting sometime between 8-8:15 p.m., based on the timing of the first half.

In the past 20-plus years of his career, VonStroke has garnered many accolades. Apart from being a skilled DJ and producer, VonStroke is the founder of Dirtybird Records, a popular tech-house label, and an event organizer of the bi-annual and bi-coastal Dirtybird Campout festivals. In 2016, Claude VonStroke was also voted America's best DJ by DJ Times, and last May, he earned one of the city's highest honors as a headlining DJ at Movement Electronic Music Festival.
