A new chapter in Lansing’s live music scene

Scott Bell has been a pivotal behind-the-scenes figure in Lansing’s music scene for years. He’s booked countless shows at venues and festivals throughout the area while also touring the world as a road manager for bands. Those years of hard work will reach a new level with the opening of Grewal Hall at 224, a new music venue in the heart of downtown Lansing. The venue’s name combines Grewal Law, its naming sponsor, and its address at 224 S. Washington Square. Its already stacked schedule kicks off July 15 with The Verve Pipe. 

Bell, 36, is one of five Grewal Hall at 224 partners and doubles as the newly remodeled room’s talent buyer. Built in 1926, the 6,000-square-foot space has a standing room capacity of 900, fits up to 225 in formal banquet seating and accommodates 400 in a theater arrangement. As for the concert calendar, Bell said, “Expect rock, country, EDM, metal, pop, jazz and gospel to all have a home here.”
