Welcome

to Music Hall Detroit

The Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts is a 1,731-seat theatre located in the city's entertainment district at 350 Madison Avenue in Detroit, Michigan. It was built in 1928 as the Wilson Theatre, designated a Michigan State Historic Site in 1976, and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977. The Music Hall Center is also home to the 100 seat Jazz Cafe and the 3 Fifty Terrace on the rooftop.

From the desk of Vince PauL:

It's a busy month here, full of the diversity of genres and demographics that has been our mission since we opened our doors in 1928 (doors, by the way, which have stayed open ever since).

 .

Great opportunities to get the kids out of the house and into the theatre, inspiring young minds with the power of live performance -- 'Spot and Friends' on the 15th and 'Schoolhouse Rock Live' on the 28th. Digital entertainment is an incredible thing, but real live human-to-human interaction is what speaks to our souls and we are committed to sharing that with kids.

 .

Fantastic concert lineup early in the month: Zap Mama & Antibalas together on the 6th, combining their Afrobeat & Europop-influenced polyphony (did you get all that?) to form a collaborative sound that is getting raves on this tour. The following Monday brings The Hot Sardines into the Jazz Cafe. The Sardines "take defibrillator panels to standards" and have been called "one of the best jazz bands in NY today", and the show is paired with a FANTASTIC dinner pop-event offered by Chef Aaron Cozadd, the maestro behind Vinsetta Garage and Clarkston Union. We have more great food events planned, so keep an eye here!

 .

Maysa and Pieces of Dream promise a top shelf romantic Valentine's Day show on the 14th, Dick Gregory shares some more of his singular perspective on the 7th, and our presentation of Detroit Metro's deep bench of talent fills out the cozy Jazz Cafe schedule throughout the month.

As always, "I'll see you downtown"
