Lance Owens turns 92 and we're celebrating!

As part of our Jazz Around Town concert series, we're throwing a birthday party for one of Knoxville's jazz icons. In partnership with the Beck Cultural Exchange Center, we're presenting a concert with tenor sax man, Lance Owens. He'll be joined on stage by Tom Johnson, Keith Brown, Emily Mathis and Will Boyd. If you're a musician, bring your ax--you might want to sit in. If you're a dancer, bring your feet--you might want to dance. To paraphrase Lance, "not everyone gets to turn 92" so come out to congratulate him. Admission is free..

We're still working on our documentary film about jazz in Knoxville.  As with most things, the two things we're short of is time and money.  We could especially use money to license the music we associate with Rocky and Billy and all the other local legends.  Take a look at this trailer and if you decide you have a few dollars to spare, click on the button below.  We appreciate every dollar you give.

Did you know that when you buy a specialty license plate for $1 more than a regular license plate, that dollar goes to support the arts in Tennessee?
