With the addition of the renovated Miller Park in its footprint, Nightfall now includes activities such as outdoor lawn games, inflatable soccer goals from Chattanooga Football Club, plus art vendors in the new grassy lawn.

Review for LowDown Brass:

Headlining Friday is LowDown Brass band, a high-energy band from Chicago, Ill. This band is a driven group that melds modern funk, hip-hop, reggae and pop into their unique style. Brandishing a powerful brass, crunk frontline with a funky percussive backline, this band creates an infectious and diverse sound that improvises movement and grooves. The LowDown Brass band is constantly touring and performing throughout North America and are now touring with their 2018 hip-hop album Lowdown Breaks. The new album redefines their unique style by combining hip-hop breaks with live soul music and lots of dance moves. 

Review for D.L. Yancy:

Opening the show at 7 p.m. is D.L. Yancy. D.L. Yancy is a singer/songwriter from Hampton Roads, Va. currently living in Chattanooga. This self-taught guitarist performs with an artistic mix of hip-hop and acoustic soul. Yancy uses creative expression to support diversity and inclusion. He has recorded with Grammy award winning record producer Lex Lucazi and has shared stages with award winning artists, Waterloo Revival and Wess Morgan. Yancy is also a winner of T.I.’s Exposure Open Mic showcase.
