Seventh Annual 12 Days of GRiZMAS Set to Get Underway
Electronic music virtuoso and prophet for positivity GRiZ is about to ring in some holiday cheer like only GRiZ can with the seventh annual 12 Days of GRiZMAS series. Set to stream on Twitch and Zoom from December 12-23, GRiZMAS 2020 will feature memorable performances, interactive amusements, and community service projects that have made the annual event an essential part of the Detroit and electronic music scenes.
Drawn straight from GRiZ’s fertile and creative imagination, the series will showcase myriad innovative hijinks. The fun starts on Saturday, December 12, with “Killer Crafts & Cocktails” led by art therapist Taylor Kamen Beardsall, who will teach participants how to create some killer crafts along with tasty cocktails. Fans are in for a treat on Sunday, December 13, when GRiZ & Friends team up for a memorable “Night Two Holiday Jazz Stream” featuring holiday tunes, a few GRiZ covers, and more. December 14 festivities will feature the GRiZMAS “Digital Charity Auction,” where GRiZ devotees can bid on items such as one-of-a-kind memorabilia, future GRiZ concert tickets, and a signed saxophone from the man himself.
The remaining days include a night of cookie-baking with Mama GRiZ, a “Global Mic Night” where participants can submit performance videos, a community service day, a virtual version of GRiZ’s Camp Kulabunga, and more. The event culminates on December 23 with a monster eight-hour virtual charity festival featuring DJ sets and live performances from some of electronic music’s biggest names, including Destructo, AC Slater, J.Worra, Blunts & Blondes, Codes, SunSquabi, ProbCause, and 10+ unannounced artists. Plus GRiZ himself will be giving a two-hour performance.
Proceeds from 12 Days of GRiZMAS benefit Detroit’s Seven Mile, a nonprofit which seeks to acquire funds for music education, art programs, and coding lessons for urban youth. In the last two years alone, the event has raised $200,000 and landed GRiZ a “Spirit of Detroit” award for his charitable efforts. In addition to donating during GRiZMAS, fans can support Seven Mile by purchasing GRiZMAS Coffee from The Great Lakes Coffee Roasting Company.
