Seven Steps Up

The Seven Steps Up concert venue in Spring Lake recently announced its closing.

SPRING LAKE — Over the past decade, a local concert venue has provided harmonious melodies in a historic Masonic Temple. On Sunday, the owners announced those tunes will prepare for their parting song.

“It is with a heavy heart that we announce the closing of Seven Steps Up,” owners Gary and Michelle Hanks said via a Facebook post. “Thank you for the support of the many artists and music lovers who have made this opportunity to bring music to West Michigan a reality and a joy. We have been so honored and humbled to share the music and experiences. This is absolutely one of the most difficult and heart-wrenching decisions we have ever had to make.”
