Southern Accents -A Tribute to Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers
The depth of the care and effort that Southern Accents put into their stage-presence and matching Petty’s moves & music separates them far from any other tribute band out there; they play it like it was their very own while showing respect to its original creator through their bold & perfect impression. They bring the timeless melodies, sweet rhythms and wild rock-music of Tom Petty to the stage for everyone to experience & fall in love with all over again, passionately, accurately and vibrantly, recreating some of the most important songs to have ever been written throughout our music’s history.
“Southern Accents, featuring some of Nashville’s best musicians, but this ain’t no Country band! They full-on ROCK!!”

Jenkins School of Dance
At Jenkins School of Dance, we believe in laying the foundations for all future dance training in a way that is fun! By focusing on proper technique in ballet, tap, jazz and acrobatics, dancers are building the bodies and minds to allow them to explore any dance avenues available.
Ms. Kim is the primary teacher. Each student receives both compliments and constructive critique in an encouraging atmosphere to help them reach their full potential.
Student assistants are carefully chosen to help with our little dancers. You can be assured that these assistants love dance, love children and will be positive role models for your young dancers.
We take special care to make sure your dancers are exposed to only positive music and are always costumed appropriately. We believe that dance is a gift from God and we seek to honor Him in all that we do.
The band formed in 2004 and has been going strong ever since! One of the most unique things about the band is they can cover all musical styles. At most performances they will cover material from the 1950’s to the 1990’s. The main focus is the 1970’s and 1980’s. The band has 143 years total combined years of experience. Band members are: Wayne Kelley – Lead Vocals, Guitar; Alan Linkous – Keyboards, Vocals; Mike Thacker – Lead Guitar, Vocals; Jerry Hanger – Drums, Vocals.
