Whether you’re a musician, DJ, podcaster, producer, teacher, videographer or photographer, each studio is available 24/7, self-service and back-lined with the gear you need.
Who We Are
We’re musicians, hip hop artists, photographers, videographers, producers, creative industry entrepreneurs 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 created Grove Studios.
Why We’re Here
Grove Studios is where creatives come to make music, create amazing content, and collaborate within an inclusive community of diverse people. Ypsilanti is home to our flagship location because it just made sense to start here.
The annual Totally Awesome Fest, Mittenfest and YpsiArboroo each host over 60 local bands in three separate weekends, the DIYpsi Art fair hosts over 85 vendors, and First Fridays Ypsilanti spans over 25 venues the first Friday of every month throughout the year. Ann Arbor is home to the annual Summerfest, Tech Jam and Ann Arbor Art Fair.
Not to mention Washtenaw County is home to countless music venues, contains over 70K in creative jobs, and is home to four major colleges and universities, making it the fourth largest creative county in the state. That’s why our roots start here – your “Grove” to grow, if you will.
Our future includes the expansion of a second location in Detroit, with a five and ten year plan focused on rapid growth that will lead to 200+ locations in North America built with our cargo architecture concept that you can learn more about here.
