Bob Seger, Kid Rock, the White Stripes and Marshall Crenshaw were among the winners at the 25th annual Detroit Music Awards, held Friday night, April 29, at the Fillmore Detroit.

Clarkston resident Rock's 2015 release "First Kiss" was named Outstanding National Major Label/Distribution Album via a vote by music industry professionals in the Detroit metro area. Rock was also slated to receive a Distinguished Achievement Award on Friday, but the honor was postponed after the death earlier this week of his personal assistant, Mike Sacha.

Jack White's "That Black Bat Licorice" was named Outstanding National Single, while the White Stripes' "Live at the Gold Dollar Vol. III" received the trophy for Outstanding Anthology/Compilation/Reissue. Seger's "California Stars" was the night`s Outstanding Video/Major Budget, and Berkley native Crenshaw's "Grab The Next Train" EP won Outstanding National Small/Independent Label Distribution Album.

The Howling Diablos led the night with three overall honors: Outstanding Video/Independent Budget for "Funk Hand;" Outstanding Record Producer for frontman Tino Gross; and Outstanding Rock Instrumentalist for guitarist Erik Gustafson. Other multiple DMA winners included the Infatuations, Rio & the Rockabilly Revival, world music percussionist Muruga Booker and Ann Arbor blues-rocker Laith Al-Saadi, who's currently one of the Top 10 contestants on NBC's "The Voice."

A full list of winners is posted at DetroitMusicAwards.net.

The DMAs featured performances by Jill Jack & the Detroit Women's Project, Andrew Dost of fun., Tim Bowman Jr., Victoria Reed, Def By Stereo, The Punks, Child Bite and the Motor City All Stars, as well as tributes to the Eagles' Glenn Frey, a Royal Oak native, and trumpet great Marcus Belgrave.
