Mocs Block Tailgate Concert Features Russell Dickerson
Monday, October 23, 2017
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Athletics Department announced rising country star Russell Dickerson as the next featured artist in the Mocs Block Tailgate Concert Series, powered by EPB Fiber Optics and presented by iHeart Media.
Dickerson is set to play the tailgate at the season finale against ETSU on Nov. 18. He made an appearance on the Today Show in July and has also been featured on The Bachelorette.
Dickerson recently released his album Yours and the title track has over 5 million views on Youtube. He will take the stage at 12:30 p.m.
The Mocs Block Tailgate is powered by EPB Fiber Optics and consists of a pregame party located on the east side of Finley Stadium (Chestnut Street/Scoreboard Side).
The Mocs Block is a partnership with UTC Athletics, Finley Stadium, Southside Social, iHeart Media and EPB that starts with the closing of Chestnut Street on game days.
The tailgate spots are occupied by various student groups, but the FREE pregame concerts and access to the local venues are open to all fans.
Those in attendance in their Mocs gear enjoy food and drink specials at the Southside Social. EPB is providing complimentary wireless access for the entire area.
Festivities begin as early as student groups want to set up for their tailgate on the day of the game, and the concerts begin two hours prior to kickoff. Spots are filled on a first come, first serve basis.
