About Scruffy City Sings
Join us this summer for a cabaret-style fundraising series!
Scruffy City Sings is a fundraiser for First Take's big ideas the only way we know how: giving y'all a great evening of entertainment, building towards providing bigger and better paid artist opportunities.
We may be theatre artists, but we want our community to be more than that! We’re looking to meet as many singers, musicians, songwriters, music lovers, and Knoxvillians as possible this summer so we can learn more about what art you want to see and how we can help.
Each month will be completely different: new performers, new musicians, a new guest artist, and a new style. From jazz standards to disco hits, musical theatre to country western, join some of Knoxville's best live performers for a showcase of local vocal talent. All proceeds will go towards First Take Co.'s artist pay fund for our upcoming season.
Please follow and share @firsttakeco and @pretentiousbeerco to stay in touch on our summer series!
