About THE LONG PLAYERS
In 2004, The Long Players began packing Nashville clubs and theaters with faithful front-to-back renditions of classic albums. The combination of The Long Players as "house band" with the amazing variety of guest artists they have enlisted over the last six years to bring these classic LP's to life has become a staple of Nashville's local music scene and has garnered national attention with feature news stories from NPR's All Things Considered, the AP Wire Service and Reuters / Billboard Magazine.
At each of the band’s public shows, The Long Players have chosen to take a portion of the proceeds and donate it to charity. On more than a few occasions, the money has gone directly to musicians to supplement health care expenses when insurance wasn’t enough. At other times the money has been donated to organizations like Music Cares, The Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, Alive Hospice and others.
Despite ever-changing musical styles, The Long Players have proven adept at recreating the sound and feel of these classic records while their guest singers add their own spin to the songs. Every show becomes a new experience with the performance of a different record and with different guest vocalists. You won’t see the same show twice! Please join us for the next album we celebrate!!

Why Become a Sponsor for Change the Tune?
The Family Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a mission of breaking multi-generational cycles of child abuse, neglect, and trauma. Our work with families and systems is based on an understanding of how Adverse Childhood Experiences and Adverse Community Environments (ACEs) affect childrens' brain development and how positive parenting plus supportive systems can help build resilience in children and our community. Yet we can't do it without YOU! Becoming a sponsor helps us change lives, change families, and change futures.
Toxic stress is recognized as a serious public health concern that causes lifetime physical, psychological, and behavioral problems for children and impacts communities for generations.
TFC works alongside parents (who often were themselves exposed to toxic stress as children) build connection, trust, and empathy with their children. In our community and in-home programs we include children as well. Over 2,700 middle Tennessee children are living with more supportive, nurturing parents this year because of The Family Center's parenting programs. Our Community Resilience program is helping systems like Davidson County Juvenile Court, Davidson County Sheriff's Office, and Rutherford County Government better understand the value of trauma informed cultures in creating greater positive impact for those entering their doors.
Change the Tune is an annual event that provides critical funding for The Family Center. As a sponsor, your company joins others in being a
"change maker" for children and families across our community!
