Trying to find ways to get out of your winter blues?

There are many ways to escape the bitter cold – from indulging in a book to hanging out with friends.

You could also listen to some mood-boosting music, perhaps by going to a concert featuring your favorite artist.

The month of March sees a full entourage of entertainers coming to metro Detroit.

Here are ten acts worth your consideration:

Michael Bublé

The soulful jazz singer and Grammy Award winner brings his distinctive style to town. There will be no opening act, so you will get Mr. Bublé all to yourself (with thousands of others). “An Evening with Michael Bublé” could be a great start to March – and an early launch for your spring break.
