Building Community With Music

Building Community with Music

HealthSpring Silver Stars The past few weeks have been like a whirlwind. Our 4th Annual HealthSpring Silver Stars Talent Search for Seniors at The Ryman was our biggest event to date. Thanks to everyone who supported & helped make it a huge success. Congrats to David Balph, The Masqueraders and Marilyn Larson. We are already making plans for Silver Stars 2012.

The Jack Daniels Birthday Celebration rolled back into Nashville and Lynchburg for the annual TV special.

Forget Me Not Benefit

Had the pleasure of hosting The Forget Me Not Benefit at the Hard Rock Café with Patrice Majors and stars Bucky Covington, Amber Hayes, Julie Roberts, Sarah Darling and more. Nashville Beer Festival What an honor to Host/MC the first Nashville Beer Festival at Riverfront Park. Over 9 thousand beer & music fans spent a beautiful Saturday afternoon enjoying craft beers and great music. My kid’s Rocky and Grady played with their band LiDO and got the show’s only “Standing O” and encore.

Discover The Rutledge

It baffles me that so many people in Nashville have yet to discover this gem of a music venue just off Broadway on 4th Ave. Frank Sass reigns as the BEST sound mixer in Music City. The vibe, service, lights and sound make for an amazingly intimate musical experience. Who knows our little Tuesday night show might become cool again some day. All this adds up to Building Community with Music and serving the community by participating in every way possible to give to the fans. We hope you’ll join us for the best value in live music every Tuesday night at The Rutledge.
