Live Music Friday Nights in Downtown Big Rapids

Tonight, you're invited to a free musical event in downtown Big Rapids.

It’s called "Magic! on Michigan Avenue," and promises to be fun for the whole family.

Artists will be lined up and down Michigan Avenue in Big Rapids playing music and singing.

There will be performers of all different genres, and they'll all be local — playing from rock styles to reggae.

And food vendors will be available to create a lively atmosphere downtown.

Multiple musicians will be playing at once, so everything will be acoustic.        

And it goes from 5:30 to 8 p.m. every Friday until September 11.

“When I was talking to all my fellow musicians in town, we all came to the conclusion that live music has been missing in our downtown district for a long time. So we all kind of decided let's make something happen,” said Kelly Quinn of the Downtown Big Rapids Association.
