Bluegrass At The Tivoli Is Thursday

Tuesday, February 22, 2005

Chattanooga’s own, The Dismembered Tennesseans, will host a concert by Award-winning bluegrass group, The Del McCoury Band, this Thursday, Feb. 24, at the historic Tivoli Theatre.

Review for The Del McCoury Band:
With close to three dozen individual and group awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association, including eight Entertainer of the Year Awards, the Del McCoury band is held in the highest regard by its peers as well as its fans. This quintet consisting of Del, sons Rob (banjo) and Ron (mandolin), bassist Mike Bub and fiddler Jason Carter have been hard at work entertaining the bluegrass faithful and reaching new audiences with their trademark blend of instrumental and vocal virtuosity, cutting edge material and an energetic yet easygoing stage presence.

Their latest album, It’s Just the Night, won the 2004 International Bluegrass Music Association Album of the Year Award. This was the debut release for the group’s own label, McCoury Music. Recently, they have been featured on CMT's 100 Greatest Love Songs Concert, taped during Nashville's Country Music Association Music Festival (aka Fan Fair), wowed tens of thousands of listeners at the youth-oriented Telluride and Bonnaroo festivals, and revisited both the historic Ryman Auditorium, where Del made his Grand Ole Opry debut with Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys more than 40 years ago, and the modern Opry House, where he joined the show's distinguished cast last year.

Presented by the Chattanooga Downtown Partnership, this show will begin with The Dismembered Tennesseans at 8 p.m., followed by headliner The Del McCoury Band. All seats are reserved at $20. Tickets may be purchased at the Memorial Auditorium Box Office by calling (423) 642-TIXS or online by visiting www.chattanoogaonstage.com . This concert is sponsored by Bright and Bright.
