John and Jacob will open the Nightfall Concert series on Friday

The Nightfall Concert Series begins its 27th season Friday with the upbeat harmonies of headliner John and Jacob, preceded by local opener Nick Lutsko. 

Presented and produced by Chattanooga Presents, this 19-week free outdoor concert series is held every Friday at Miller Plaza and features headline performances by a broad spectrum of music performed by national and international artists. 

Review for John and Jacob:

Sometimes labeled “country,” but with their roots in gospel and rock and roll, John and Jacob (a band fronted by John Davidson and Jacob Bryant) had a big year in 2014. They took the summer festival season by storm with appearances at SXSW, Bonnaroo, Hangout, Firefly, and the CMA Festival. In July, while touring in the U.K. with Kacey Musgraves, their single “Ride With Me” was promoted to BBC Radio 2, garnering them an interview with the legendary TV and radio personality, Bob Harris. 

Returning to the U.S. they joined Musgraves in support of her fall tour. Their October debut at the Grand Ole Opry was followed by the release of their independent self-titled album, hitting Billboard Heatseekers Top 10 and iTunes Top 10 charts. January 2015 found the boys playlisted at BBC Radio 2 with their single, “Be My Girl.” John and Jacob are published writers in Nashville writing such Billboard #1 hits as “Done.” with The Band Perry. They have also had their current single “Be My Girl”, placed in ABC’s hit TV show, Nashville. Their appearance at Nightfall will follow an April tour in the U.K. 

Review for Nick Lutsko:

Local musician Nick Lutsko and his band will open the Nightfall show at 7 p.m. Now with two CDs released, Lutsko’s songwriting shows a diversity of styles, from folk to rock to organized chaos. It’s been said that Lutsko “writes like Dylan, performs like Springsteen, plays like Zappa, and gets down like James Brown.”
