ANN ARBOR, July 3, 2014 — It’s time to come celebrate the summer with free entertainment from some of your favorite musicians!

On Tuesdays, shoppers will be treated to the sounds of Michigan native Tyler Barber, a pop/rock performer known for his acoustic guitar and original songwriting. Fridays will feature “Jazz to the Max”, hosted by Maxine Michaels, Hour Detroit magazine’s 2014 DJ of the Year. These shows will showcase renowned Detroit jazz artists like Rydell Chavez, who kicked off the series June 27th.
