Kick off the New Year by adding these five fun activities to your calendar.
Lean back, let the music wash over you and get lost in the swirling images spread out across the sky above you. There is nothing quite like the Grand Rapids Public Museum’s Concerts Under the Stars music series.
Grand Rapids musician Dan Rickabus has been playing music for over 17 years. He has been the drummer for indie folk pop rock band The Crane Wives for almost eight years, a bandmate and producer for Michigan Earthworks musicians Seth Bernard, and performs with Gifts and Creatures, and an instrumental band, Public Access.
A concert under the stars may sound like a difficult experience to pull off during the winter season in Michigan. That’s why the Roger B. Chaffee Planetarium at the Grand Rapids Public Museum has opened its doors, giving audiences the ability to appreciate the beauty of music and the wonder of the cosmos no matter what the weather is like outside.
The New Year is off to a busy start for Edye Evans Hyde. The Grand Rapids-based performer is playing shows throughout February, including two this week in Grand Rapids.
The local band hi-ker is a self-producing, experimental indie and collage pop trio.
After a successful first season last year, Concerts Under the Stars return to the Roger B. Chaffee Planetarium this month.
