PRLog - Jan. 7, 2012 - KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- KNOXVILLE, Tenn. --  "The Pick and Grin 2012" delivers a full afternoon of top-notch entertainment to Knoxville's Market Square next weekend with amazing live music, hilarious comedy and a flaming roast of attorney Stephen "King of Swag" Burroughs. All proceeds from The Pick and Grin go to the Joy of Music School, a nonprofit organization providing free music lessons and instruments for hundreds of Knoxville area disadvantaged and at-risk children.

Market Square's Latitude 35 will host the 2012 The Pick and Grin on Sunday, Jan. 15, 2012 featuring Nashville-based recording artist Kimber Cleveland, comedienne Mia Jackson, and singer-songwriter Heather Maples. The event culminates with a roast of Stephen A. Burroughs.  Tickets to Pick & Grin 2012 are available now at Latitude 35 for $12 each and attendees are strongly urged to get tickets in advance (we are expecting a large turnout for this event).

The fun will spill into Market Square with Sharkie and Sharkette from Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies and kicks off with “Brunch with the Sharks” from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. at Latitude 35 (brunch is not included with The Pick and Grin ticket price).
The lineup for The Pick and Grin 2012 is as follows:

•   At 2 p.m., students from The Joy of Music School will perform.  The Joy of Music School in Knoxville is a nonprofit organization providing free music lessons and instruments for hundreds of Knoxville area disadvantaged and at-risk children. All 85 teachers are volunteers. Lessons and classes take place in the School’s building, located just off I-40 near the 17th Street exit, in the Mechanicsville/Lonsdale area. The School also provides music and supplies at absolutely no cost to students. There is currently a waiting list of over 80 children, so the school’s needs have never been greater.  All proceeds from Pick and Grin 2012 go directly to the Joy of Music School.

•   At 2:30 p.m., Heather Maples will perform.  Born and raised in Gatlinburg, Heather is an eighth-generation descendant of Tennessee's first settlers, and her musical roots run deep.  Reflected in her guitar style, hints of bluegrass are found in her soulful but energetic songs.

•   At 3 p.m., comedienne Mia Jackson will take the stage.  Mia has appeared on Oxygen’s “Girls Behaving Badly” and TLC’s “Wild Weddings”. She was also a writer on BET/Centric’s relaunch of the Soul Train Awards in 2009. Mia is a diverse comedienne with a different voice and perspective.  Her energetic conversational style leaves the audience feeling refreshed and as if they have known her forever.  Smart, funny, and versatile, Mia entertains all types of crowds, whether it’s corporate, colleges, or comedy clubs.

•   Nashville’s Kimber Cleveland will perform at 3:30 p.m., bringing her quirky, left-of-center, pop/rock sensibility that has garnered the attention of audiences and fans from her hometown of Washington, DC to Nashville, to Dallas, TX to Canada – and virtually everywhere in between.  In 2011, Kimber worked extensively with Jewel, and was added to the elite list of artists (including Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley) endorsed by McPherson Guitars. She is currently putting the final touches on her latest recoding project – “Comin’ On Strong” - in Michigan where she has teamed with Grammy Award-winning producers and engineers who have worked with Pink, O.A.R, Dave Matthews Band, Natasha Bedingfield, Michael Jackson, Pearl Jam, Pussycat Dolls, etc.  In adition to her on-going, non-stop musical endeavors, Kimber has also held lead acting roles in musical dramas and movies (plus recorded nine original songs for the soundtrack to the movie “Beautiful Noise”).  She is a not-to-be-missed performer.

•   At 4 p.m., The Roast of Stephen A. Burroughs will begin. Burroughs, the legendary Knoxville attorney who drew 20,000 people to “Swagfest” last year (an event celebrating the unofficial “King of Swag” – Stephen A. Burroughs) will be on hand to participate in the roast and add to the fun.  Bring your swag, because Stephen A. Burroughs said to – and his beard demands your respect.

The Pick and Grin 2012 is hosted by SMOMOtv’s Taz Cable. Don’t miss out on this unique event and an opportunity to help the Joy of Music School.  Tickets are available now for $12 each at Latitude 35 (groups wishing to buy 10 tickets or more can purchase tickets for $10 each).  The fun starts at 2 p.m. and attendees are encouraged to arrive early (all seating is general admission).  For more information, call (865) 978-6481 ext. 400.
