Engel Stadium Concert This Saturday!

Yacht Rock Revue and Jason D. Williams will rock Engel Stadium for the 5th Annual American Dream Concert on April 22, 2017. The concert benefits the Veterans Entrepreneur Program at UTC, providing free specialized educational services for U.S. military veterans.


With thousands of covered seats, music fans can enjoy this concert, even in the unlikely event of rain. The sound in the stadium is excellent, and the seating gives an excellent view of the stage – up close and personal.


Yacht Rock Revue has become one of Chattanooga’s favorite bands to see when they come to town. After a huge show at Riverbend a couple of years ago, they have filled the Revelry Room and now moved up to the larger Track 29 to accommodate their fans. Specializing in the soft rock hits of the 70’s & 80’s, Yacht Rock Revue is one of the nation’s premier tribute bands, featuring songs from Hall & Oates, Steely Dan, and many more.


Jason D. Williams entertained one of the largest crowds in the ten-year history of Riverfront Nights last summer. The man, who may or may not be the son of piano playing legend Jerry Lee Lewis, delivers an action packed performance of boogie-woogie piano music that will have the entire crowd dancing.


The five-time winner of the Chattanooga female vocalist of the year award, Janella Hayes, will perform the National Anthem prior to the concert.


Tickets for the event are just $20 and are available at the Engel Stadium gate, located at 1130 E. 3rd Street, just a block from Erlanger hospital. Gate open at 5 p.m., and festivities begin about 5:45 p.m. There is plenty of parking adjacent to the stadium. Food & beverages will be available at the show.


I rate this show at 5 stars, my highest recommendation. It’s a “don’t miss” event.

I dread physician’s appointments riddled with government regulatory hypocrisy, ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: The Readers Are Right

It is hardly a secret that since I have become intensely interested in public education in Chattanooga, I have tried to read, research and understand how our efforts have fallen horribly short in the last 15 years. We agree we have a crisis on many fronts and I hope it is equally obvious I am desperate for solutions. Much like school board member Karista Jones, I worry that we are ... (click for more)
