Buddy Shirk’s Piano Bar returns

For years a main feature of Make Music Day Chattanooga has been Buddy Shirk’s Piano Bar, which is partly featured performances and open mic – or open piano stage. The year stop into the lobby of the downtown library between 10 to 4 to enjoy some excellent piano sounds or join in to make some music. Timothy Hawn will be featured at noon.

We are thankful to Summit Pianos for graciously supplying the piano!

Cherry Street Tavern

Make Music Day finale will be at the Cherry Street Tavern; Chattanooga’s favorite spot for late night parties.

Maark will host this mash up of:

+ Katrina Barclay – amazing winner of singer songwriter contests. This gal writes songs that will rip your heart open and she does it with a voice that soothes the wounds!

C-Grimey – Chattanooga’s most notorious – not to be ignored – say it – tell it – yell it – like it is – RAPPA

Marty Bohannon – the beloved leader of the Bohannons – which always shake the roof, the walls, and the ground – will close out the night!
