Venue Information

A historic live music venue located at 8952 Grand River, in Detroit, Michigan. The building was designed by Detroit engineer and architect Charles N. Agree in 1928 and originally served as multi-purpose building hosting retail business and a large dance hall. During this period the Grande was renowned for its outstanding hardwood dance floor which took up most of the second floor.

In 1966 the Grande was acquired by Dearborn, Michigan high school teacher and local radio DJ Russ Gibb. Gibb was inspired by visiting the San Francisco Fillmore Theater, and envisioned a similar venue in Detroit for the new psychedelic music and a resource for local teenagers. Gibb worked closely with Detroit counterculture figure John Sinclair in bringing in bands, both from San Francisco and harder-edged psychedelic rock bands gathering around Detroits Plum Street community.
