Alive After Five has been bringing folks to downtown Knoxville since 1993, so it’s time to party like we just turned 21!We’re going to get in the groove with one of our favorite bands at AA5, a super tight group with a smoldering hot horn section. Led by vocalist and keyboard/harmonica player, Tim Spencer, Soulfinger is groovin' in the 21st century with 20th century Old School R&B, Soul, Funk, and Blues, playing songs made famous by Otis Redding, James Brown, Sam Cooke, B. B. King, and many more.

Food available from the Viet Grill.
