Providing an outlet for local musicians

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) There’s a lot of amazing talent here in West Michigan when it comes to music. Many of the acts that appear on eightWest also have their music played on community radio station WYCE, which is part of the non-profit Community Media Center.

WYCE is holding its spring fundraiser right now. Station manager Kevin Murphy says the fundraiser has had some of its best days in WYCE fundraising history this week.

WYCE not only provides music through the radio, it also holds live music events, has music acts in studio, and helps local musicians by giving them new platforms to get their talent out.

Some of the events coming up are WYCE Live at Wealthy presents Martin Sexton. The show is sold out, but it will be streamed online at 8 p.m. on March 30. WYCE is also partnering with CalvinCollege for a spring concert series. On Wednesday, April 2, you can see OkkervilRiver with special guest Hundred Visions. That’s at 8 p.m. at the Ladies Literary Club in Grand Rapids. On April 3, you can see The Head and The Heart with special guest Basia Bulat at the Hoogenboom Center at Calvin College.
