Common Ground Music Festival 2016 has come and gone and while festival headliner, Dierks Bentley, is probably back on a beach somewhere; you might be back on the hunt for more great music. Fortunately, great tunes abound during the summer months in Greater Lansing and you can find a concert series taking place almost every day. But what happens when summer is over and you need your entertainment fix? Well, you high-tail it to one of these seven venues that offer live music year-round. 

  1. Lansing City Market
    In addition to their summer Jazz & Blues Concert Series on the Grand, The Lansing City Market hosts Live Music at the Market which features a free musical performance most Saturdays. Check their event schedule to see new performers as they are added.
