Musicians, like bikers, Shriners, and other charitable groups, are always doing something to benefit those that are down on their luck. It’s just the way they roll. Friday, November 9 will be no different, as the Power Players Show Band and Rhythm & Brews join forces in a benefit to help Jordan Hallquist, a popular local musician who was seriously injured in an automobile accident.

The Power Players Show Band, one of Chattanooga’s most popular funk rock bands, will be headlining the evening, beginning at 8:30 p.m. With a little luck, Jordan will be present to welcome his many friends from throughout the metro area.

Tickets are just $10 and can be bought online at https://www.ticketbiscuit.com/rhythm-brews/BuyTickets.aspx?EID=145227& ,
