Grizmas 2017

Music saved his life, but Detroit built him. Now GRiZ is doing all he can to give back to his community by helping to develop a support network for creative kids in a city ripe for artistic renaissance. By turning the benefit of this cause towards fostering the spirit of Detroit, GRiZ continues to set the intention towards further development in his own backyard. Growing up learning music within the progressive container of Detroit’s music scene changed his life, so as a continuation of his roots, he is now working with a philanthropic cause aimed to help kids in the city flourish as he did. Little Kids Rock — which brings music education programs and instruments to underserved public schools nationwide—receives 100% of the proceeds from every charitable GRiZMAS event.
