Trinidad Tripoli Steel Band

Nobody really wants to be in Michigan for the winter, right? It’s cold and wet, then cold and frozen. But we stay for some reason … probably the beer. Anyway, if you are looking to melt away the winter blues, we suggest checking out the Trinidad Tripoli Steel Band. The group, based in Ypsilanti, is famous around the world for bringing its calypso beats and tropical sounds wherever they play. They’ve opened for Liberace and performed for Queen Elizabeth, so trust us, they are worth a look.

Price: $15
