Cody McCarver, Jimmy Tawater, Michael Martin, Vicki Roberts, and the ChattaMusic Band will all come together to perform in a benefit at Track 29 for Loyd Foutz, a local music lover and promoter for more than 40 years.
Loyd Foutz has promoted countless music events over the years, and has proven to be one of the best promoters the area has ever produced. He has devoted much of his life to helping others by promoting and spearheading charity fund raisers and benefit shows, never asking for any reward in return.
After suffering from two heart attacks the year before, in July of this year, Loyd fell at his home, breaking his hip. He spent weeks in the hospital and now needs help to overcome the astronomical medical expenses.
Cody McCarver, star of both music and film, had a starring role in Cole Younger and the Black Train, released this past summer. He spent 12 years in Confederate Railroad before launching a solo career.
Jimmy Tawater, a member of the Chattanooga Music Hall Of Fame, has been staple in the local music scene for 40 years. His most recent project, the River City Showcase, most recently won the BandSlam event at the First Tennessee Pavilion.
Michael Martin has appeared in concert with Kenny Chesney, Tracey Lawrence, Pam Tillis, John Berry, Mark Wills, Confederate Railroad, Lee Roy Parnell, Charlie Daniels and more. His more than two decades in the music business has brought the respect of nationally known acts.
Over the years, Vicki Roberts has opened for The Kool & The Gang and The Guess Who, and has performed on stage with Country Music Artists Lee Morris, The Great Mack Vickery, Billy Joe Burnette, Razzy Bailey, Jack Robertson, David Frizell, Bobby G.Rice and many more. She has also been a lead singer for The M&M Show Band, The Roberts and Young Jazz Band, and The Bill Hackler Jazz Band.
The ChattaMusic Band is lead by Dennis Massengale, another Chattanooga Music Hall of Fame member, and longtime leader of Big Deal Band and No Big Deal Band.
