Super T and the Tyrone Smith Revue brings the jams to the Center for the Arts Backstage Bash.
The Center for the Arts invites its groupies to go back in time at the Backstage Bash on Saturday night.

“We had people dancing until midnight and insisting that the band keep playing last year but ran out of time,” event co-chairman David LaRoche said. “This year we suggest people start dancing earlier.”

And dancing won’t be a problem when Super T and the Tyrone Smith Revue break out their ’70s jams at the block party-style bash. Super T’s 10-piece party band and blend of classic rock, funk and soul is sure to be a crowd pleaser, as is the 2010 Nissan Cube that will be raffled off.

Nissan of Murfreesboro donated a new Nissan Cube to be raffled at the event for a mere $25 a ticket. The Nissan Cube is a 1.8 SL completed with a shag dash topper, 20-color interior accent lighting system and 16-inch gunmetal alloy wheels.

The car is currently in the showroom of Nissan of Murfreesboro and will be at several sponsor locations throughout the month.

Ticket buyers do not have to attend the Backstage Bash to be eligible. Tickets can be bought through Saturday at various sites throughout Murfreesboro including JoZoara’s Coffee Shop, Maple Street Grill, Dempsey Vantrease & Follis, Financial Services & Solutions, The Learning Circle and The Center for the Arts.

Money raised by the raffle and the Bash will be used to continue bringing the arts to Murfreesboro for both children and adults.

Tickets are available at two levels $100 for dinner and event or a concert-only Backstage Pass for $35.

The Backstage Bash will bring the feel, drama and décor of backstage at a concert to College Street with dinner provided by Maple Street Grill and coffee served by JoZoara’s Coffee Shop.

“This is not your average fundraiser,” LaRoche said.

He explained the Backstage Bash is a very special fundraiser for a special part of the community, adding the inaugural Backstage Bash last year raised $25,000 for the Center for the Arts.

As a nonprofit, which no longer receives government funds, CFA is dependent on the generosity of its groupies for funding.

Last year’s funds were used to perform maintenance on CFA’s century-old building and establish the “Center for the Arts Wireless Microphone Fund.”

LaRoche said this year’s funds will be used to support the center and its theater offerings, which will be performed in every month of 2011. MP
