Saturday, January 21, 8:00pm-11:00pm

609 Lafayette St, Nashville, TN
City Winery

Mrs. Currelley is currently a regular on BET+ Dramedy  “Bruh.” You also probably recognize Chandra in Tyler Perry’s #1 box office movie, Diary of a Mad Black Woman, playing herself in the nightclub Chandra’s. And who can forget her show stopping performance as Loretta in “A Mother’s Love” and the movie Madea’s Big Happy Family as the choir soloist, Sister Laura.  Chandra is also the former lead singer of recording group The S.O.S. Band, replacing the original lead singer. Because of her ability to legitimately cross musical and theatrical styles, Chandra has had the opportunity to work with some of the greats from Clarence Avant, jazz legend Roy Ayers, where she recorded the duet, “Let Me Love You”, to the phenomenal Tyler Perry.

The Scarecrows were established by two independent songwriters, Cory Rowe and Willy Scruggs, in 2020. The pair started to play weekly gigs and continued writing together to form their own style of country music. In 2021 Rocky Covington was added on the drums. After hitting the studio and recording their first EP, The Scarecrows have hit the ground running. Their songs pack a punch, while the live show is naturally fun to watch!
