At Rhythm & Brews, located at 221 Market Street, Mighty Sideshow plays Friday night with their great brand of rock music. Saturday night finds one of the best Michael Jackson tribute bands in the country, Who’s Bad, at R & B. Next Thursday, be sure and go see Roger Alan Wade – he’s one of my all-time favorites.

Bud’s Sportsbar has the Sullivan Band this Saturday and on March 4th, it’s Chattanooga’s biggest Fat Tuesday celebration for Mardi Gras. Always great food, service, and fun.
JJ’s Bohemia down on MLK has a great music lineup for March, with Milele Roots on Friday, and Ryan Oyer next Thursday. It’s just down and across from my favorite chicken place – Champy’s.
Every Friday night for the past 422 years, the Mountain Opry brings the very best in bluegrass, mountain music, and Americana to Signal Mountain. You can’t go wrong with this on any Friday night.
