Greetings from the desk of Vince Paul

President and Artistic Director

It’s here! The new season of music, theater, and dance has begun and when you see what’s happening, you’ll want to be here too! 

Our Music Series plays a big role in October, both on our Main Stage and in the intimate Jazz Café. Mark the 29th on your calendars for Irma Thomas, The Blind Boys of Alabama, and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band Legacy Quintet – a phenomenal group of musicians working together to bring you a virtual trip to New Orleans and still get you back home in time for work on Monday.

Mike Stern calls the Jazz Café his Detroit home and oh are we fortunate for it, given his wide recognition as one of the best jazz guitarists of all time. Catch him on the 4th and while you’re here, pick up tickets for Omar Sosa exactly one week later when he returns with his Quarteto AfroCubano – a jazz / world music / hip hop sound as unforgettable as it is impossible to pigeonhole.

The very next day kicks off our very popular Family Theater Series with an 11 a.m. performance of ‘My Father’s Dragon’ based on the Newbery Honor book about a resourceful boy named Elmer, and his adventures in compassion, courage, and friendship.

There’s more than this space can fit, so browse the listings and let box office know how many subscriptions you want for an amazing low price of $99 for a FULL SERIES of five performances! 

Our social channels always have the latest and greatest: ….on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and Detroit Music Weekend official website!.

As always, "I'll see you downtown"
