Music Instruction Studio's university-educated teachers dispense harmonious how-tos during music lessons for students 6 years and older. Offering instruction in pop, jazz, and classical styles, the instructors equip vocalists with belting skills, teach pianists masterful ivory tickling, and inspire bassists to lay down funkier grooves than Bootsy Collins retiling a bathroom. Music Instruction Studio stocks its interior with instruments as well as an entire library of sheet music that students can purchase at an additional cost; pupils may also rent out equipment for at-home practice. After stepping up their skills, students can draw on MIS's extensive music studio to showcase newfound abilities and hair-metal power slides during semiannual recitals at no additional charge.

A two-day spree of exhibits and performances, this year's Secret City Festival hosts outdoor concerts featuring Village People and Ricky Skaggs. Disco-era icons Village People perform spirited hits such as "Macho Man" and "YMCA," which have instigated more dance-offs than gang violence and British Parliamentary debates combined. Village People follow funky rock n' rollers Dishwater Blonde, a regional act that lays down agreeable grooves.

Belcourt Taps celebrates the charms and flavors of the South with regular live music, and gourmet twists on comfort classics. The festivities begin before diners even step through the door. Outside, a sprawling patio surrounds the restaurant, lit up at night with warm sconce lighting and candlelight. There, guests can dig into gourmet stuffed burgers and tacos with pulled pork, shrimp, or chicken. Diners can also explore tapas and shareable plates of fried green tomatoes and nachos or dive solo into a barbecue pulled pork sandwich.

Inside, regular live music showcases the talents of singers and songwriters who carry on the Nashville sound. Golden yellow walls brighten the room, adding the feel of a southwestern cantina or a southwestern cantina owned by a pyromaniac, and soft overhead lighting creates the ideal atmosphere for a draft beer.

After a lifetime of conquering comedy and literature, renaissance man Steve Martin along with his crackerjack journeymen The Steep Canyon Rangers brings chart-topping bluegrass to The Woods at Fontanel. Steve Martin’s Grammy Award-winning banjo playing is paired with the smooth vocals, smart songwriting, ferocious instrumentals, and callused fingers of The Steep Canyon Rangers to promote their new album Rare Bird Alert, which debuted at number one on the Billboard Bluegrass Albums chart. The harmonious performance promises the highest-quality bluegrass available without dragging a time machine through an Appalachian hootenanny.

Blistering every seat in the house with his scorching wit, actor, comedian, and author Tracy Morgan brings his inimitable act to the historic Ryman Auditorium for a special night of raucous, adult-only hysterics. Beloved for his roles on Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock, and in numerous films, Morgan serves up an obstreperous stand-up act sure to tickle even the most irascible ribs until they weep with joy. Tier 1 tickets (a $69.50 value) allow audience members to ogle the funnyman from front main-floor seats, including the front sides, as well as the front section of the balcony. Tier 2 seating (a $49.50 value) is further back on the main floor and balcony and also includes front and back seats on the extreme sides of the balcony but still provides a good view of the on-stage action. Every ticket comes with a glossy, limited-edition poster (a $15 value) of Tracy Morgan, a souvenir with the potential to turn a house into a home and a home into a stop on local walking tours.
