The Nightfall Concert Series, produced by Chattanooga Presents, wraps up its 30th season Friday at Miller Plaza with a headline performance by KP and the Boom Boom, and Sistren as opener.

Review for KP and the Boom Boom: 

KP and the Boom Boom are a funky band from Austin, Texas that bring an alluring warm vibe to the stage. Lead by UK-born Kate Priestley (KP), this band brings high-energy performances, as well as a mixture of R&B, funk, jazz and hip-hop that creates a truly innovative and enticing sound. KP and the Boom Boom released their debut album “The Brave” in 2016 and were recently labeled as a “Band to Watch” by Austin Fusion Magazine. The funky band was elected for an official ACL Late Night show in 2015, and was also chosen to support Snoop Dog. KP and the Boom Boom creates upbeat music that is undeniably unique and infectiously danceable. 

Review for Sistren:

Opening at 7 p.m. for KP and the Boom Boom will be Chattanooga’s own Sistren. Sistren is a trio of some of Chattanooga’s finest female vocalists melded together by intricate harmonies and a unique blend of music. The band blends the sounds of gospel, folk, bluegrass and southern rock to make a sound that is entirely their own. The trio consists of Chattanooga locals Laura Walker, Lori Mast and Kathy Veazey. Each of these women has pursued other musical careers throughout Chattanooga making Sistren a unique collaboration.  

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. Food trucks and non-alcoholic drink concessions are also available on site. No outside food or beverages are allowed to be brought in to Nightfall, therefore coolers are not allowed. 

Known for its family-friendly environment as well as being recognized nationally for the quality of its musical programming and locally as “Best of the Best” for Chattanooga Events, Nightfall is a family-friendly concert series with an average attendance of between 2,500-3,000 each night.

Roy Exum: So Long, 'Mr. Chaudion'

It’s been a couple of years ago, almost three, when I walked into a well-respected horse barn at the foot of Lookout Mountain, not far into Georgia, and caught sight of four black men, silently watching me enter. When I got to their midst, I nodded my respect to each of the four, as I was taught from the very start in my life, before I said, “I’d like a word with Mr. Chaudion Womble.” ... (click for more)
