Who We Are

We’re musicians, artists, makers, fathers, sisters, and friends who needed a space to do what we love. We looked around and realized there were lots of creative people just like us—full of passion with nowhere to practice and produce. So we concepted Grove Studios.

Why We’re Here

We started Grove Studios to give makers of every kind a place to grow, practice, and produce their work. As part of Michigan’s creative community, we wanted to give artists, musicians, and other independent creatives a place to collaborate, a place to make, and a place to call their own. Ypsilanti is home to the Grove Studios flagship location because it just made sense to start here.

The annual Totally Awesome Fest and Mittenfest each host over 60 local bands in two separate weekends, the DYpsi Art fair hosts over 85 vendors, and First Fridays Art Walk spans over 25 venues around Ypsilanti.  Not to mention that Washtenaw County contains over 70K in creative jobs, making it the fourth largest creative county in the state. That’s why our roots start here in Ypsi. Your “Grove” if you will.
