Groovin’ into warmer weather!

3We are very lucky to live in a region that attracts some of the world’s most talented musicians!  With perfect summer venues likeMeadowbrook Arena, the opportunities are endless!

The reason that I write this blog now, is because most tickets for feature summer concerts are currently on sale, or will be going on sale this month and I’d hate to see you miss out! Meadowbrook offers affordable ticket prices ($40 +), both general admission lawn, and reserved seating.
