2022 Performances in West Michigan

Everyone enjoys a good play or concert, and our communities along Lake Michigan are blessed with talented actors and musicians that entertain us throughout the year. Center Stage Theater at West Shore Community College is the venue for many interesting plays and performances, plus they have their very own wind symphony, jazz band, concert choir and Collegiates. The Historic Ramsdell Theatre, in downtown Manistee and the Ludington Area Center for the Arts in downtown Ludington, offer a variety of performances.

Because of the restrictions imposed due to COVID-19, many events have been affected. Please check with the venues prior to planning to attend.

We're your local music store, and have been in business since 1981. Purchase acoustic and electric guitars, basses, banjos, digital pianos, percussion, keyboards and ukuleles. Brand names like Seagull, Godin, Paul Reed Smith, Reverend, Gretsch, Schecter, Larrivee, and Washburn. We also print out most band music while you wait.
