Chattanooga’s Live Music Scene – Overland Express Reunites With Charlie Daniels May 2 At Engel Stadium

Monday, April 15, 2013 - by Bob Payne

One of Chattanooga’s all-time favorite bands, Overland Express, will open for the Charlie Daniels Band at Engel Stadium on May 2 in a benefit for the Veterans Entrepreneurship Program at UTC. Many music fans will recall Charlie coming down to Yesterdays after his concerts at the Memorial Auditorium and jamming with Overland. Overland also opened for Charlie Daniels on the road back in the day.

Tickets for the show are on sale now at area Kangaroo locations and cost only $20. The proceeds will help the Veterans Entrepreneurship Program at UTC continue to waive tuition fees for veterans re-entering school.

Engel Stadium recently underwent renovation during the filming of the movie “42”. It is a great concert location, as the seats are covered and the stage is close to the seating area. With the covered seats, a little rain won’t get in the way of a good concert and the seating area is shaded in late afternoon/evening.

VIP and sponsorship opportunities are available by calling Mickey McCamish at 423-756-2211.
