Memphis Knights Big Band at the Cotton Club

The Memphis Knights Big Band will perform at The Cotton Club in the Memphis Cotton Museum on Saturday, August 15, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. I must confess that I have not heard the MKBB perform, but their playlist is certainly swing/big band material. I have been to a Cotton Club event before, and had a great time.

The Cotton Museum is located at 65 Union Avenue in the Cotton Exchange Buidling.
