It's been 28 bands in four weeks of competition performing at the House of Rhythm & Brews. Over the next several weeks we will be spotlighting each band but last night the final winner is rock, funk & soul group Function: with a "C."
The prior three weeks it was a popular house vote of as many as seven bands in a single night with original material and limited cover songs. As the winner, Function: with a "C", will be performing as a headlining act opening the start of the Nightfall concert series. They also received a $1,000 prize.
The four artist groups performed for a panel of judges representing a diversified interest in Chattanooga’s local music scene.
The remaining three groups will also play in the Nightfall series includes hip-hop artist soCro, blues/soul group Pack of Wolves and bluesy rock quartet Jordan Hallquist and the Outfit. All 28 bands received huge support packing out the venue for each performance. Chattanoogans should be aware of the large diversified talent of local singers, songwriters, musicians, dancers supporting and investing in the local music scene. The groups are looking forward to the opportunity to perform as opening acts at various times during the Nightfall competition.
The photo gallery captures some emotions, passion and spirit of the four groups and the community support. Congratulations given by each of the remaining three bands to Function: with a "C". completes the trip to Nightfall.
