Holiday Fringe! Nashville Fringe Festival presents its last show of the year featuring two of Nashville's hippest groups. Trombonist Oscar Utterstrom's writing mixes his Swedish roots with the American and world music, giving the finished product a unique sound. To top things off, the use of electric trombone and a DJ makes this group one of the most exciting groups on the scene today. Emmy award nominee Michael Whittaker is a unique hybrid of his diverse upbringing. Growing up in Los Angeles California, he grew up listening to a diverse culture of music. At a young age, his training on piano began in both jazz and classical music. A true virtuoso on his instrument, Michael always brings a stellar group to play his funky compositions.

You are invited to attend The Junkyard Horns show at The Building on November 20. In addition to the super funky sounds of the band, this show will also be the debut of the JunkYard Horns cartoon. There will also be other surprised that you won't want to miss! The doors are at 7pm, show starts at 8pm. There's a $5 cover. Hope to see you there! ***A few things to take note of: first, although this is a cartoon, it isn't very child friendly. There will be some naughty language! Second, this is a BYOB event.
