GRiZMAS returns to Masonic Temple for the fourth year in a row



It's beginning to look (and sound) a lot like GRiZMAS.

The DJ/musician/producer GRiZ (or Grant Kwiecinski if you knew him back in the day) loves to give back to the city of Detroit, and he has been doing so with his annual GRiZMAS concerts that go down at the Masonic Temple a couple weeks before the holidays commence.

This year's festivities go down December 15 and 16 with presale tickets on sale now.

This year's GRiZMAS will feature GRiZ's full band, something that he has only recently started doing at live performances. The 14-piece live band will join GRiZ on stage at the December 15 performance.

GRiZ's annual "12 Days of GRiZMAS" will also return before the shows. The "12 Days" features tons of fundraisers for GRiZ fans to get involved with that benefit charities in Detroit. The program has raised up to $30,000 for Little Kids Rock, a national non profit that raises money for music education.

You can get your pre sale tickets here, and regular tickets go on sale Friday, Sept. 29.
