Palmer Woods' Music in Homes series brings jazz, classical, and world music to one of Detroit's historic and beautiful residential neighborhoods. Its 8th season kicks off on Saturday, Dec. 27 with the Armond Jackson Quintet ... which has unfortunately sold out. However, there are plenty more concerts planned from January through June worth checking out, like the Mardis Gras celebration with Alvin Waddles Quartet on Saturday, Jan. 31. 

Tickets are $45 each or $40 for groups of 10 or more, and can be purchased at palmerwoods.org or by calling 313-891-2514. All shows include a reception that pairs a meal to the music — like the Mardi Gras menu, which features jambalaya, red beans, rice, and corn bread.

Saturday, Jan. 31, 8 p.m.
Alvin Waddles Mardi Gras Celebration
