Tiki BBQ Party Fundraiser

Franklin Preservation invites you to a Tiki themed BBQ Party to be held at the Old Lutheran Church

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The fundraiser will feature Ed’s Smokin’ BBQ with ribs, pulled pork, smoked turkey and more from 5 – 7 pm. Bring your own lawn chair and your own beer or wine to the party.  Soft drinks and water will be available.  Canopies will be provided for protection from sun or rain.  Tropical Dress is encouraged.

From 7 – 9 pm, Gaetano’s Underworld Blues Band will play in the former church sanctuary.   Admission to the concert is by donation.   The band plays both blues standards and original tunes with jazz, funk and R&B influences.   A review by the Smokey Mountain Blues Society describes Gaetano “Tom” Letizia as an “extraordinary guitar player”, who transcends “many styles of playing to get out what he wants to play.”   Free parking will be available in the parking lot behind the First Baptist Church on Buffalo Street.    The fundraiser benefits the restoration of the Old Lutheran Church.
