Men who have been sporting the ‘stache and women supporting those men can celebrate the conclusion of Movember on Friday.

With monthlong events aimed at raising prostate cancer awareness, Murfreesboro’s Movember will wrap up its efforts with a night of music and fundraising at 3 Brother’s Deli & Brewhouse on the Square.

Festivities will include live performances by Flood Victims at 8:30 p.m., followed by Henry Daggs, Japanese Cowboys and Professor Shyguy until the wee hours of Saturday morning. Local artists have also donated several pieces that will be auctioned off during the evening.

MTSU’s jazz department and Blue Restaurant & Bar have partnered to debut MTSU Jazz Jam, scheduled for Monday from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Held at Blue Restaurant & Bar, located between Toot’s and Premiere 6 Theater on Northwest Broad Street, the performance will feature students from the MTSU School of Music, both instrumentalists and vocalists, performing a variety of jazz standard tunes.

Jazz combos coached by the MTSU jazz faculty will kick off the evening, followed by a Jazz Jam session that will feature students, faculty and members of the community.

Admission is free and open to the public.

“The jazz jam session continues to be where aspiring jazz musicians and pros go to share ideas and improve their skills,” said Don Aliquo, director of jazz studies and an associate professor of saxophone in the School of Music. “We are excited to partner with Blue in giving our talented students this opportunity.”

Initial plans call for MTSU Jazz Jam to be held the first Monday of each month, but it could expand to offer more evenings, the news release continues.

“MTSU has long been a beacon in the world of jazz and has such a wonderful tradition of producing exceptional jazz musicians and vocalists,” said Greg Pogue, managing partner of the Blue Restaurant & Bar.
