"12th & Porter Saved"

A rock star has saved 12th & Porter.

Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora has played at 12th & Porter and loved the Nashville club .

He told his buddy, Michael Jackson producer Frank Deleio, that 12th & Porter was in trouble and now, the club has a new investor.

12 & Porter’s owners said the club is now more secure than ever because of Deleio.

In other entertainment news, the Nashville School of Arts held its graduation Wednesday night. Rather than a typical graduation, the school's graduation actually was, well, a show.

The students danced, played, sang and even acted.

The Nashville School of the Arts show is so popular that it drew 3,500 people are there were only 143 graduates.

Also, workers are getting ready for Thursday’s riverfront return of Dancing in the District.

It has a different name, the Downtown River Jam, but for the next two Thursdays Riverfront Park will be rocking as part of Nashville’s year-long celebration of the city's 200th birthday.

Thursday night’s line-up includes Jimmy Hall and Jack Pearson, Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes and famous songwriter JD Souther, who wrote several hits for the Eagles.

The show is free andopen to the public.
