Amber Fults And The Ambivalent Lovers Play At Nightfall Friday

Monday, June 17, 2013

The Nightfall Concert Series continues its 25th year of summer musical programming Friday with a headline show by Amber Fults and the Ambivalent Lovers. The opening act is Dana Rogers. These free shows are held each Friday at Miller Plaza, now through Aug. 30.

Review for Amber Fults and the Ambivalent Lovers:

Winner of this year’s McKay’s Road to Nightfall competition, Amber Fults and the Ambivalent Lovers are one of the most exciting new bands in Chattanooga. Built around the core of Amber’s smart, catchy songs and her expressive voice, the Ambivalent Lovers fashion a sound of hard hitting rock n' roll with splashes of country, pop, and classic rock thrown in. AFATAL’S first gig, with a fully established lineup, was competing in the “McKay’s Road to Nightfall 2012,” which they won in the first round but narrowly lost to their good friends Strung Like A Horse in the final competetion. AFATAL may commonly be seen performing at popular Chattanooga venues such as JJ’s Bohemia, The Honest Pint, and most frequently, Rhythm and Brews. 

Nightfall’s opening act, Dana Rogers, is a soul-driven songwriter and musician. Since 1997, she has wooed audiences with her sultry blend of vocals and understated guitar. A fan once told Dana that her voice "...is like steel reinforced velvet” - smooth and strong. Dana's musical style is an American combination of acoustic fingerstyle jazz, folk, funk and blues. She has shared the stage with acts such as Sarah Lee Guthrie, Guy Davis, Ingrid Michaelson, Steve Poltz, The Waybacks and The Floating Men to name a few. With her melodic vocal and guitar arrangements, she's sure to entertain. 

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.

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 wristbands with a photo ID at the Express Line.
