On Friday, May 14, Rock City’s Velvet Lounge will welcome back Tango. The music will play from 6 to 8 p.m. As usual, there is no cover charge; tipping the musicians, however, is always encouraged.

Tango returns to The Velvet Lounge for another evening of romance, wit and sweet sentiment, courtesy of the Great American Songbook. Kristen Burkholder, vocalist, and Martin Gottlieb, pianist, perform popular song of yesteryear with warmth, humor, elegance and understanding. Selections include “Lullaby of Birdland,” “Put On a Happy Face,” “As Time Goes By” and “Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars.”

Everyone is invited to spend an unforgettable early evening with songs they know and love at Rock City Books & Coffee, 328 Main St. For more information on this and other Rock City event, call 594-4123 or check out Rock City Coffee on Facebook.
