Proc’s Amateur & More, also known as The Peaches and Peewee Show, is carrying on a recent tradition of being a warm-up event for the annual Black Tie Event, a formal evening celebrating the African American Heritage Society of Williamson County.

The family friendly Proc’s talent show is at 6 p.m. at Johnson Elementary School, 815 Glass Lane, Franklin.

In the 1930s Franklin Training School teacher, Professor T.J. “Proc” Myers, began the local talent show for his students. The modern show celebrates that tradition, which continued at Natchez High School.

There will be ol’ school music, acts and artists.

Cost of admission is $5 for adults and $3 for children.

The Black Tie Event, on Feb. 2 at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Cool Springs, is sold out.
