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.

The Boss, Claude Ramsey

I try not to overuse the word great, but we lost a great man today, Claude Ramsey. I had the pleasure of serving under him as director of Commercial and Industrial Properties for 14 years while he was the Hamilton County Assessor of Property. He was probably the smartest person I have ever known. He was tough but patient, kind, caring and compassionate. He knew how to get ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Not A Blessed One

When I read, to no great surprise, that 132 of Chattanooga’s “leaders” had signed a letter in support of “socioeconomic integration” in Thursday’s Times Free Press, there were two things that were immediately obvious to me: Not a blessed one would have (a) written such a letter on their personal stationery, and (b) not a blessed one would have ever voted for the current president ...
