The Levitt AMP Chattanooga Music Series will feature Nick Lutsko on Thursday at 7 p.m. as part of 10 weeks of free, live music on the lawn of the Bessie Smith Cultural Center of local, regional and national talent.
Review for Nick Lutsko:
A Chattanooga native, Nick Lutsko’s style ranges from storytelling songs with surreal imagery and political overtones to vintage sounding pop with catchy melodies and grassroots production. Lutsko's band—dressed in homemade puppet costumes—has helped him deliver exceptional original alternative rock with an unusual tinge of whimsicality and humor. In 2014, Lutsko hit the road to showcase his highly acclaimed Americana debut album, Heart of Mold. Today, Lutsko is taking a stylistic departure with his newest release, Etc., which features loud guitars and robust harmonies with an eclectic mix of funk, folk, psychedelia, indie-rock, pop and blues.
Review for Midnight Promise:
Midnight Promise will open the evening with a performance at 5:45 p.m. This local group is a young Pop-Rock three piece band with a dynamic sound that likens to John Mayer and Jason Mraz. Elements of rock, pop and R&B permeate their songs while creating a different experience around every corner.
