Greetings from the desk of Vince Paul
Our steady diet of music, theater, and dance is sustaining us through a real Michigan winter and we have some great picks throughout the month of March to take you into the home stretch.
Working just a bit out of sequence because we’re ecstatic to welcome him back, grab tickets early for Billy Cobham on the 22nd, one of the greatest drummers of all time. You’ll take home an incomparable memory of seeing a great artist, up close and personal, in the intimate Jazz Café.
The super cool crossover space between theater, movement, and music has a stellar double-header on the 10th-11th, when MOMIX and then Mummenschanz take the Main Stage, telling stories with knockout visuals and the poetic, global language of the human body. Both shows are family friendly; and because we know how restless kids can get in the winter, there’s even more for families this month! Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia returns on the 18th with ‘Guess How Much I Love You’, and our resident artists of PuppetART present ‘Banana For Turtle’ on the 25th.
Brit Floyd (nearly sold out on the 24th) will take fans of England’s iconic rockers over the moon via the dark side, with a musical and visual tribute show that takes the utmost care with every detail for an amazing Floyd experience.
And save time for the ‘Detroit talent pipeline’ in the Jazz Café, with lots of dates this month for musicians, poets, writers, performance artists and more.
As always, "I'll see you downtown"
