Bret Michaels, Fireworks Close Out Riverbend Festival

Sunday, June 17, 2018 - by Mark A. Herndon

Bret Michaels, who is not only a rock star but also a reality star, spokesperson, businessman and philanthropist, closed out the annual Riverbend Festival on the Coke Stage on a warm Saturday night.

The large crowd at Ross's Landing was also treated to the fireworks finale.

Bret Michaels is also a cultural icon, an entrepreneur, a TV star, a father, the face of the American Diabetes Association, a supercross enthusiast, solo artist, Poison frontman, and a generous donor to a myriad of charitable causes.

 This is an overview provided by Bret's staff. 

On Saturday night, he  reluctantly shutdown Riverbend, but not before almost two hours of rock n roll and a special honor to the military and our country.  This was unprecedented by most artists who have entertained on the Coke Stage.
 
The crowd excitement, and Bret's sincere desire to be in Chattanooga never ceased.   I am sure the Chattanooga Live Music scene will see a return of Bret Michaels with or without his iconic band Poison soon.

Roy Exum: Who Is This ‘New Voice’?

It’s easy for me to say that I either know, or know about, almost every person running in November for the state legislature. Yet when I describe Lemon Williams as the most exciting of the bunch, that’s because he's the only guy I had never heard of when he picked up his qualifying papers. He just turned out the best political aspirant I have had a conversation with in the last ... (click for more)
