The Nightfall Concert Series, produced by Chattanooga Presents, continues its 30th season Friday at Miller Plaza with a headline performance by neo-soul songstress, Divinity Roxx, with Over Easy as support. 

Review for Divinity Roxx:

Divinity Roxx lives up to her name during each performance, her ability to play bass guitar while fronting her own band creates a heavenly stage presence. Divinity’s buttery smooth voice is the perfect conveyor of her neo-soul narratives about personal growth, love and positivity. She plays the bass guitar with remarkable dexterity and innate rhythm, seamlessly incorporating elements of funk, hip-hop and rock into her music. 

Divinity Roxx has appeared on The Grammy’s, The Oprah Winfrey Show, Saturday Night Live, 106 and Park, The Arsenio Hall Show, The Queen Latifah Show and Good Morning America. She served as a band member and assistant Musical Director during a five-year tour with Beyoncé. Divinity has performed with legends like Patti Labelle, Kelly Rowland, Erykah Badu, Bootsy Collins, Killa Mike and Gladys Knight. Divinity’s latest project “ImPossible” was released in 2016. According to the artist, the album is a message to the world about working collectively to create positive changes in our society. Spin her record to add warmth and passion to any setting, but don’t miss the electrifying and uplifting performance by Divinity Roxx this Friday at Nightfall.  

Review for Over Easy:  

Opening for the Divinity Roxx will be Chattanooga’s own Over Easy. Over Easy makes genre-bending music that’s rooted in progressive rock, jazz and funk. The seven-piece outfit commands the stage with two guitarists, a cello, saxophone, drums, bass guitar and assorted percussion instruments. Don’t confuse Over Easy with passive “easy listening” music of yesterday; this band performs with passion and energy that gets a crowd moving and shaking. Woodwind, strings, percussion and vocals create a dynamic sonic palate to satisfy pretty much anyone’s musical craving.  

Held each Friday at Miller Plaza through Aug. 25, Nightfall showcases a broad spectrum of musical genres featuring a local band at 7 p.m., followed by a headline show by a national artist at 8 p.m., many of whom are performing for the first time in our city. These shows are free to the public and appropriate for a family audience.
