Aftah Party is based in Knoxville. This 9-member band with 3-piece horn section provide high energy performances. They offer an eclectic blend of soul, jazz, blues, and funk.

In 2010 Aftah Party won Knoxville's first annual "Sound Off Competition" and the opportunity to perform at "Sundown in the City" on Market Square. The Band's lineup consists of Shawn Turner and Shana Denis (lead vocals), Ken Brown (drums), Keith Brown (keyboards), Casey Hauschildt (lead guitar), Tamara Brown (alto sax), Jamel Michell (tenor sax), P.J. Alexander (trumpet), and Carl Fields (bass).

Alive After Five is a unique live music series presented on thirty or more Fridays per year in four seasonal series. The programs take place in the smoke-free, casually elegant setting of the Great Hall in the Knoxville Museum of Art. There is a live band on stage, seating at tables, two cash bars, food from area restaurants, free freshly popped popcorn, free parking, and a licensed therapeutic masseuse available. Audience members can enjoy listening to music, dancing, and browsing the museum's art galleries.

Admission to the winter premier of Alive After Five is $9 for general admission and $5 for museum members and college students with ID. Ages 17 and under are admitted free. Alive After Five is sponsored by Cherokee Distributing Company, East Tennessee PBS, Metro Pulse, and WDVX-89.9FM.
