PHOTOS: Aunt Betty At Riverbend

Friday, June 22, 2018

Aunt Betty has gained a huge following in the Chattanooga Live Music venues over the years. Their return to the Riverbend Festival from a couple of years ago to prove 80s music lives forever strong with their Chattanooga fan base. The crowd braved sunny skies and more than 90 degrees temperature to experience the Heat and Hard Rock favorites.

Aunt Betty is a high energy Atlanta-based 80s rock band, that has originals on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Music and CD Baby. Aunt Betty also covers Van Halen, AC/DC, Def Leppard, Poison, Motley Crue, Billy Idol and many more big hair 80’s artists.

Aunt Betty was formed in 2010 and began playing local venues in Atlanta, GA. The response was overwhelming and now Aunt Betty plays somewhere in the Southeast US every weekend. By playing the music that the members grew up with, Aunt Betty creates a look back to the fun filled rock of the 80’s. Band-mates include Tony Lawrence (Vocal/Bass), Clay "Package" Wallis, (lead guitar), Kenny Cory, (Drums) and Larz Hanson (Lights/Sound Engineer) More info at Aunt Betty Rocks!
