There’s something about the warm summer air that sparks thoughts of bands playing outdoors under a dusk sky, people reuniting with long-seen friends, and the refreshing taste of craft brew on the tongue. In Chattanooga, they’ve made this summer feel accessible to everyone by offering a free concert series, Nightfall, where headlining bands ignite the stage every Friday from May to late August.
Over 30 bands are scheduled to grace the lineup of 2018 Nightfall, bringing a fresh mix of blues, rock, funk, folk, and soul. Texas fans will appreciate The Vandoliers’ mix of lighthearted folk melodies with edgy rock vocals. Ruby Velle and the Soulphonics will make retro-lovers swoon with a happy-go-lucky set reminiscent of groovy Motown. And for those looking for a great guitar solo, look no further than The Fritz, whose true-to-funk vocals and electric keyboard channel the 70’s while keeping it modern with forward-thinking lyrics.
One for the Community
The best part about Nightfall (other than being free of course) is that it’s open to all ages and you can bring your pets! This means the whole community can join in on the fun. Dogs running free and babies trying out their best two-step – what more could you ask for? Let’s not forget the food and drinks stationed throughout the event from sponsors like Nashville’s Frothy Monkey, Chattanooga Whiskey, and Pure Southern Premixed Cocktails.
