TEARING UP THE CLUB: Eddie Tigner (left) with the Ink Spots, circa1 1959, at Lithonia Country Club.

On Aug. 12, Tigner tickles the ivories with his sweet voice and his signature, swinging style that, despite his 92 trips around the sun, hasn’t aged a bit. The Uncle Sugar band plays host for the evening, and a parade of guest performers are a given at this high-profile event, which always makes for an evening of music that's exciting and unpredictable.

Sure it’s a Sunday night, but the early start time will set the tone for a rollicking week that will leave you with a joyous smile — one that mirrors the one plastered on the genial Tigner’s face. He’s one of Atlanta’s treasured roots music veterans, and he shows no signs of slowing down yet, regardless of how many candles are on his cake.

8 p.m. Northside Tavern. 1058 Howell Mill Road N.W. 404-874-8745. www.northsidetavern.com.
