Jordan Hallquist And The Outfit At Riverfront Nights

Sunday, August 16, 2015 - by Mark A. Herndon

Riverfront Nights presented by Friends of the Festival and key sponsors WGOW, Blue Cross Blue Shield and others bring a great concert series on the Chattanooga riverfront on Saturday nights. Chattanooga Presents' Nightfall Music Series, ongoing on Friday nights, is another successful and well-ttended music series. Both music series offer exposure to local singers/songwriters, musicians complementing even more popular regional acts.

On this night was a local favorite Jordan Hallquist and The Outfit https://www.facebook.com/JordanHallquistAndTheOutfit opening for The London Souls.  The photos capture the appeal of this band as more photos will be presented of the New York-based The London Soul who are very successful U.S. and international opening for some of the most  noted artists in the world. 

Jordan Hallquist & The Outfit included originals songs by the band and several cover songs. The song list included 1. The Rising, 2. Old Ways, 3. No Diggity, 4. Jimmy Leg, 5. Fly On The Wall 6. Replaceable You and 7. Ohio Queen.

More photos coming of other Riverfront performance from Shanytown, The London Souls, and this week’s local band Glowing Bordis and New York-based  Hank & Cupcakes who returned to Chattanooga after several huge performances this year at Rhythm & Brews and Riverbend.
