Bumpers Bar and Grill marked the beginning of Portal Paranormal Society's journey into the investigative paranormal dimension. After founding the team on October 30th, 2009, gathering a team, equipment and creating the necessary forms we were contacted by the owner of the now closed bar who was curious and unsure about the events happening in the bar.
After properly researching the history, geography, interviewing the client and workers we were ready to give this Westland favorite it's first ever paranormal investigation in February of 2010.
Due to hours of operation we did not even begin to set up until 2:15am and completed our initial investigation by 7am. A long, and insightful night, filled with activity was what those present experienced.
Over the next few years we would return 2 more times looking for and receiving some of the best activity we have experienced.
The following is the evidence gathered from the data recorded during all sessions from our first hunt at Bumpers Bar and Grille, (now closed), in Westland, MI. The evidence displayed here is the best of what was collected; meaning the easiest to hear, see and understand.
We recommend and encourage the use of headphones when listening to any clip to enhance your ability to fully enjoy the sometimes difficult to hear captures. Some files have been enhanced for the general public to hear better but has not changed in any way that would alter what was caught during the investigation.
Due to the nature of the equipment involved we do not consider Spirit Box finds as Evidence, per se, but do find it interesting when we get what we’ve asked for. Generally we do not include answers that are less than 3 words in length as that could be too easily something that came through on one of the stations scanned. These Spirit Box clips do take some practice listening to, so don't be surprised if they don't jump out at you right away.
