Jazz Lunch at the Square Room: A Tribute to Rosemary Clooney

The Square Room, in partnership with the Knoxville Jazz Orchestra and WUOT 91.9FM, is now hosting a Jazz Lunch series on the first Wednesday of each month from noon to 1:00 pm. Each month's concert will pay tribute to a different historical figure whose music made a lasting impact on jazz. Admission to the concert is $15 and includes a lunch buffet served up by Café 4. Tickets are available online at or by visiting Café 4 in person prior to the show.

The next concert in the series will take place on Wednesday, October 2nd, from noon to 1:00 pm. This special Jazz Lunch performance features A Tribute to Rosemary Clooney with vocalist Kayley Farmer. Musicians Vance Thompson (trumpet), Jason Day (piano), Jay Farmer (bass), Martin Whitaker (drums), and Chad Volkers (guitar) will join Ms. Farmer for this exciting performance.

Vocalist Rosemary Clooney's remarkable career spanned six decades, beginning in the 1940s with Tony Pastor's big band and continuing until her death in 2002. This special tribute will cover material ranging from her early days with Columbia Records, her success with Bing Crosby in the film "White Christmas," her collaborations with icons such as Duke Ellington, Harry James, Benny Goodman, Nelson Riddle and her 1970s comeback with Concord Records.

Special thanks to WUOT 91.9 FM, The Square Room, and Weird Monkey Studios for support of the Jazz Lunch Series.

The Square Room is a new, state-of-the-art performance venue in downtown Knoxville, TN in the Historic Market Square district. It is housed in the rear of the 4 Market Square Building along with its counterpart Café 4, a full-service restaurant and coffee bar. For more info visit
