The Nightfall Concert Series continues its 25th year of summer musical programming Friday with a headline show by Kansas Bible Company. The opening act is The Nim Nims. These free shows are held each Friday at Miller Plaza, now through Aug. 30. 

Review for Kansas Bible Company:

The Kansas Bible Company came into being during the summer of 2008 at Goshen College in Northern Indiana. Featuring a five-man horn line, three guitars, two percussionists and one bass, the Kansas Bible Company plays music influenced by surf, soul, progressive, hip-hop, classical, pep band, and good old fashioned rock and roll. All 11 members moved into a house in Nashville in the summer of 2011. The band currently has two full-length albums, Ad Astra Per Aspera, Hotel Chickamauga, as well as an EP, Surf Rock Trilogy. In addition, the band was just recently picked by jam band heroes, Widespread Panic, to open up for them in Pelham, Ala. on July 19.

Review for the Nim Nims:

Opening act, The Nim Nims are an independent rock band from Chattanooga.  Featuring five local musicians, they’ve been part of the Chattanooga music scene for almost a decade.  While they’re currently working on a new album, you can pick up their latest release, Baristas, Fashionistas and Mother Teresas, which came out in late 2011. 

Presented and produced by Chattanooga Presents, Nightfall continues to bring an eclectic mix of music to downtown Chattanooga. Nightfall showcases the local arts community by featuring Chattanooga musicians for each opening act, beginning at 7 p.m., followed by performances by national and international talent beginning at 8 p.m. Beer, wine, food and non-alcoholic drink concessions are available on site. No outside food or beverages are allowed.

Presale booklets for discount beverage tickets, good for beer and wine, will be available on site now through the end of June. Each booklet contains 20 tickets and costs $80 (this is a savings of $20 from individually priced tickets). These tickets save time and money by allowing patrons to avoid the regular ticket lines at Nightfall, and simply get their ticket booklet and wristbands with a photo ID at the Express Line.
