Liquid Velvet Shows in Lenoir City and Johnson City

I hope everyone had a happy and safe 4th of July! Liquid Velvet sure did! We are fortunate and thankful for the gig opportunities afforded us during these strange times ruled by Coronavirus. Friday night, July 3rd, we performed on the Tiki Hut patio at Calhoun’s in Lenoir City. Then, for the 4th of July we traveled east to Johnson City and played an awesome party for the Johnson City Country Club overlooking the mountains of East Tennessee. We enjoyed some BBQ and a great outdoor party with fantastic weather.

We would also like to say that Alyssa continues to recuperate and strengthen her voice after a recent vocal surgery. She is hoping to rejoin us in August. We miss her and look forward to her return!


Welcome New Students

I would like to welcome Samuel W. to my teaching schedule, he will be studying bass guitar with me. I’d also like to welcome back Jim H., an online student in the Chicago area who will be resuming banjo lessons with me after a brief hiatus.

KAM Mostly Moved Into New Facility

Knoxville Academy of Music staff and several key helpers moved the bulk of the equipment and furniture into our shiny new facility at 165 West End Avenue in Farragut. Now there is a lot of set-up work to be done. Instructors are continuing to teach online until the new school is set-up and ready to greet the public! We can’t wait!
