Review for Ruen Brothers:

Headlining Friday is a young Northern England trio featuring siblings Henry and Rupert Stansall, known by their amalagam created moniker Ruen Brothers. From Scrunthrope, England, these instrumentalists and songwriters are making their mark with their throwback rock and roll sounds that resemble singers like The Rolling Stones, the Everly Brothers, Roy Orbison and many more.
With a string of memorable performances from the hills of Glastonbury to the deserts of Coachella, these multi-instrumentalists have taken their sound that intersects the early days of the genre with a dynamic present day act. Iconic producer Rick Rubin, who quickly recognized their talent and promptly took the brothers under his wing. “I liked that their songwriting seemed like it was from another era,” explains Rubin. “It’s making something new again with these traditional influences”
that have helped them assemble a global audience of fans. The brothers’ artistic background and pedigree come into full focus on their debut studio album “All My Shades Of Blue,” produced by Rubin and featuring Henry on acoustic guitar and Rupert on electric and acoustic guitar, harmonica, and bass.

Review for Jason Lyles Band:

Opening the show at 7 p.m. is the Jason Lyles Band. This rock artist and singer-songwriter has a high energy and upbeat blend of pop, and alternative rock music styles. Jason Lyles is performing with a full band known as Jason Lyles and the Legitimizers. This band is known for their style of power pop and alternative rock, and they tend to break out some popular 80s and 90s pop rock covers. His style of music ranges from the influences of Matthew Sweet, Ian Moore, Cheap Trick, the Freddy Jones Band and more. Jason Lyles and the Legitimizers are entertainers and a favorite band in the Chattanooga local area.
