Live Music Every Mile

Music makes up the heart and “sole” of this event. Live bands will be performing a variety of music from alternative, classic and punk rock to blues, jazz and soul along each mile of the race course. The bands set the tempo for this marathon party, where runners and spectators alike will be “dancin’ in the streets” to these mini-concerts.

Is your band interested in rockin’ for thousands of runners and spectators?  Please email your band information along with an electronic press kit or music sample to Kelsey Morris at KMorris@nashvillesports.com.
