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.
You can find info about the event here.
Live musical performances include Grove Members like Rod Wallace (Double Negative People) DJing between sets; Stevie Tee (from Doogatron) performing an electronic music set; hip-hop artist Jameelski, jazz guitarist/vocalist Adam Kahana; singer/songwriter Chey Halliwill; percussion artist NODATA (aka Nick Zomparelli) and guitar-duo Kind of Animal.
Here’s a brand new pair of songs that Kind of Animal just released online:
Grove is located at 884 Railroad St in Ypsilanti
While you’re at the party, you can take a selfie in front of the awesome mural painted by Doradiaspora (pictured above).
