River City Sessions Set For Aug. 10 At Granfalloon

Thursday, July 20, 2017

River City Sessions will be held Thursday, Aug. 10, at The Granfalloon.  Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show is at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $5. 

Review for the performers:

Ivy Leaks - Rebekah and Beth have been playing together for more years than their youthful looks seem to allow. A favorite at open mics around town they have a broad range of originals to give us. Reminiscent of the early Indigo Girls. 

Cannon & Hailey - Cannon Hunt and Hailey Miller are students at a local high school, Baylor. They have a folk-inspired style, incorporating acoustic sounds and harmonies. Each of them brings a different style to the music; Cannon brings classic, southern rock sounds while Hailey includes pop and R&B influences. The two have played covers ranging from Hip Hop to Pop to Country, not to mention plenty of their own music. Together, Cannon & Hailey hope to achieve an authentic, unique sound that their audience can sit back and jam to. 

Mike Crowder - Mike Crowder is a lifelong Chattanoogan and a musician with many years' experience in local bands like Dark Horse Ten, the Bluegrass Pharaohs, and Uncle Lightnin'. Mike has been writing songs for over thirty years. He has recently struck out on his own, developing a strong solo performance style and appearing at local open mics and festivals. His story songs describe unmade choices, unwound relationships, and unbroken survivors of the human experience. Mike is preparing an album called "Playing a Part" for release later this year. 

The event is sponsored by Dana and Charles Perry Family as well as Paula Dunlap.

DACA Or Amnesty To Become The Majority?

Without an influx of new dependency ... (click for more)

Last Saturday morning in paradise, at 8:07 to be precise, an alert appeared on every cell phone that read: “BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.” I can envision no greater horror than having to ask myself how much time do I have, and what is the wisest way to spend it? It was a long and dreadful 38 minutes until the correction ... (click for more)
