Regardless of what day of the year anyone plays, great musicians will always perform a good show, and of course Griz will naturally follow this tacet. While many people mistake him for being a member of Pretty Lights Music or anyone else associated with the booming “Boulder Bass” scene over in Colorado, as similar as he might sound to those folks,  GRiZ (real name Grant Kwiecinski) is from the birthplace of techno and Motown that is none other that Detroit. Straight out of college, GRiZ puts a hard edge on dubstep and trip hop, but still holds true to his funk and soul roots. He has collaborated with Gramatik and together they make up the supergroup that is Grizmatik. Oh, and did I mention he plays the saxophone when he performs!!!

There will also be two not A-quality, but S-quality guests opening up for him. One of them will be Marvel Years, stage name of Cory Wyths, his melodic trip hop and electronica beats set the perfect groove for a Halloween night. He even remixed The Who's “Eminence Front.”

And of course, don't forget about Two Fresh! While they may sound nothing like their birthplace of Tennessee or even the Pretty Lights Music sound of Boulder where they live now, their hip-hop, trap, juke and footwork grooves should get you grooving!

GRiZ, along with Two Fresh and Marvel Years, are performing at the Orpheum Theater on Thursday October 24th 2013. For more information, visit .
