Looking for what to do for New Years in Detroit?  There are several different options for every variety of music to ring in the new year!
Greensky Bluegrass – Majestic Theatre
Greensky Bluegrass will be ringing in the New Year at Detroit’s Majestic Theatre.  The New Year’s Eve show will also feature Michigan band, Frontier Ruckus. If you are not familiar with Greensky Bluegrass I suggest you check them out!  In my opinion, one of the better bands to emerge out of the Michigan music scene. Tickets are $25.00 in advance or $30.00 at the door.  This is an ALL AGES show.
