If you’ve been following the pages (printed or online) of Current this past year, then you’ve probably heard a bit about Grove Studios already.

Grove is a grassroots effort to provide musicians and artists from all around the Detroit metro area and western Washtenaw County a rehearsal and creative space for their work and development. It’s a collaboration between musicians, artists, photographers, cinematographers and creative industry entrepreneurs. They saw a need to provide passionate/inspired artists a place to practice and produce.

And now, they’re having a formal grand opening party.
