BARON SOCIETY

NMAAM’s Baron Society is designed for generous contributors in honor of Club Baron, one of the many night clubs of Nashville’s Jefferson Street history. Club Baron, Del Morocco and The Modern Era were venues that once featured the best in musical talent of the day. Bessie Smith, DeFord Bailey, Jimi Hendrix and Tina Turner are just a few of the artists who performed at Club Baron and embodied the drive, excellence and creativity of African Americans across the nation.
