We are excited to welcome back the incredible musicians who have supported us in the past and made Yum!East such a lively evening. This year’s guests can eat, drink and dance to the sounds of Eight O’Five Jive, Half Brass and Hickory Slims.
Eight O’Five Jive: Winners of the 2014 NIMA 'Best LIve Blues Performers'!!High energy, jump/blues band that plays swingin' tunes from the 1940's and '50's.
Half Brass: Born under the influence of classic New Orleans tradition, Halfbrass creates festive atmospheres out on the street and all the way back to the stage by mixing second-line brass band music with funk, jazz and rock.
Hickory Slims: Hickory Slims is a modest Americana super-group formed from various Nashville acts. With a focus on harmony-driven performance and playful, witty songwriting, the Slims present a musical sentiment which is equally adept at making the listener laugh and cry.
Created in 1891 by Miss Fannie Battle, the Fannie Battle Day Home for Children is the oldest child care center in Middle Tennessee. Miss Battle was a woman of great vision and dedication who saw a need and, against substantial odds, met it. Miss Battle realized that unsupervised children were roaming the streets of Nashville while their parents worked and, as a result, rented a room and began caring for children. Her determination led to the creation of the Day Home.
Today, our mission is to continue the tradition established in 1891 by our founder, Miss Fannie Battle: to provide affordable, high-quality child care for at-risk children in a nurturing environment, while empowering families to reach their potential. For 124 years, we have served families facing economic and educational hardships. We serve a population that lives in an area where the average annual income is significantly lower than that of the national average and single-parent homes are predominant. This area of Nashville is also home to Nashville's largest public housing development.
Our program offers full-time, year-round, high-quality early childhood education, Monday-Friday, 6:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m., with Infant, Toddler, Preschool, Pre-K, and School-Age Programs for 120 children ages 6 weeks to 12 years. Fees are based on a sliding scale according to income and families are required to be working or attending school. Providing families with the ability to work or continue school while their child receives high-quality care not only supports families as they break the cycle of poverty that can persists throughout generations, but it also allows their child opportunity to be successful in school.
