Captain Midnight Band At Riverbend

Friday, June 23, 2017 - by Mark A. Herndon

What a musical experience to see and hear the Captain Midnight Band at the Riverbend Festival on the Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union stage. The band is no alien to our music environment and it makes regular appearances in the Chattanooga Live Music scene.

The super hero band plays at one of their favorite stages at Clyde's On Main several times a year. Captain Midnight includes Joshua Cooker, lead vocals, guitarist along with Lil Rae Rae (Marlena), keyboards, Grant Jenkins, bass guitar and Matt Drummey drums. 

The Captain Midnight Band plays "Waterbed Rock & Roll", a unique hybrid of Classic Rock, Jam, R&B, and blue poetry. The band, based in Nashville, creates "Water Bed Rock & Roll for the mind, booty, and soul. Crunchy Rock Guitar, Soaring Vocal Harmonies, and thick R&B grooves create a sonic landscape for the band's suggestive, Sci-Fi imagery and improvisational interplay."

Formed in New Orleans in 2002, The Captain Midnight Band "stays true to the Crescent City's celebratory heritage, turning every show into a sweating, throbbing event, interspersed with humor, eroticism, and inspired jams," it has been written.

Flattering comparisons to genre-defying acts such as P-Funk, Frank Zappa, and Ween are evident in the relationship between band and audience. Striking visuals and an ever-changing set list keep fans coming back for more.

Drink Up, Chattanooga

I attended the meeting to discuss the placement of the sewage treatment plant at the Cambridge Center in Ooltewah today. My problem with the meeting (aka) dog and pony show, is that the meeting started out with the agenda of the Ooltewah Community Council.  After living in this area for 45+ years I have never heard of this group.  I would like for someone to answer ...

Roy Exum: Dear Faux Pelini

It has been my experience that of all the tribes and herds of different people on earth, sports writers are among the funniest people of all. Oh, there isn’t anything real sexy about Villanova beating Georgetown or a baseball player hitting for the cycle. Now, if a player hits a single, double, triple and homer in that order, that’s “a natural cycle,” and that is kind of fun to ... (click for more)
