GRiZMAS is just around the corner and there’s no better way to celebrate than giving back. GRiZ knows this best, which is exactly why he has introduced his next series of events dedicated to supporting music education in Detroit’s public schools system.

Music saved his life, but Detroit built him. Growing up learning music within the progressive container of Detroit’s music scene shaped him, so as a continuation of his roots, he’s dedicated his last five holiday seasons to help kids in the city flourish as he did. The last five GRiZMAS seasons have proven to be a massive success — and this year has potential to be better than ever.

This year’s focus of the 12 Days of GRiZMAS builds on past efforts to continue raising funds to increase access to music education for Detroit’s youth. It is this “for Detroit, by Detroit” ethos that has given the holiday series a genuine reputation for bringing positivity and love to one of the city’s most deserving communities.

Local mic night, roller disco, volunteering efforts, caroling, a pop-up holiday shop and more will be established over 12 nights as GRiZ and his dedicated family take over the city. He caps it all off with a traditional Night Before GRiZMAS set or two, followed by a 2-night run at Detroit’s iconic Masonic Temple.
