Engel Stadium Concert This Saturday!

Yacht Rock Revue and Jason D. Williams will rock Engel Stadium for the 5th Annual American Dream Concert on April 22, 2017. The concert benefits the Veterans Entrepreneur Program at UTC, providing free specialized educational services for U.S. military veterans.


With thousands of covered seats, music fans can enjoy this concert, even in the unlikely event of rain. The sound in the stadium is excellent, and the seating gives an excellent view of the stage – up close and personal.


Yacht Rock Revue has become one of Chattanooga’s favorite bands to see when they come to town. After a huge show at Riverbend a couple of years ago, they have filled the Revelry Room and now moved up to the larger Track 29 to accommodate their fans. Specializing in the soft rock hits of the 70’s & 80’s, Yacht Rock Revue is one of the nation’s premier tribute bands, featuring songs from Hall & Oates, Steely Dan, and many more.


Jason D. Williams entertained one of the largest crowds in the ten-year history of Riverfront Nights last summer. The man, who may or may not be the son of piano playing legend Jerry Lee Lewis, delivers an action packed performance of boogie-woogie piano music that will have the entire crowd dancing.


The five-time winner of the Chattanooga female vocalist of the year award, Janella Hayes, will perform the National Anthem prior to the concert.


Tickets for the event are just $20 and are available at the Engel Stadium gate, located at 1130 E. 3rd Street, just a block from Erlanger hospital. Gate open at 5 p.m., and festivities begin about 5:45 p.m. There is plenty of parking adjacent to the stadium. Food & beverages will be available at the show.


I rate this show at 5 stars, my highest recommendation. It’s a “don’t miss” event.

Improvements On The Glass Bridge

The glass bridge has been an embarrassing situation almost since the day of installation. At least two or three and usually more sections of glass have continuously been cracked. This creates fear in pedestrians and causes most to want to use the middle metal section. In addition, it has not been maintained for cleanliness.  I observed that both the front section and ...

Roy Exum: Heroes Gather On July 14

Oliver North, whose journey as American patriot has not been an easy one, never lost hope. He once admitted he lied to Congress under oath, was found guilty of three felony counts after he followed the direct orders of his superiors, and then endured the wrath of the ignorant before the ACLU – of all sources – had the charges vacated. The former Lt. Colonel in the Marine Corps ... (click for more)
