Swinging Through Time

The Graystone Online

Graystone sign With its marquee beckoning, the Graystone Ballroom was a luxurious ’20s temple to nightlife and that new music sweeping America — jazz. When the wrecking ball reduced the grandeur to a heap of rubble 60 years later, the Graystone lived on as part of the movement to preserve the local history of an all-American music. Today the Graystone International Jazz Museum tells the story of the ballroom for which it was named, the bands and the times. It has also become a broad repository reflecting the breadth of Detroit’s jazz heritage.
