The River City Sessions is moving to the Cadek Concert Hall on the UTC campus for a series of eight concerts. Organizers said the move facilitates a larger audience, live streaming of selected shows and perhaps the most requested, a move to Friday nights.

The first show at the new location will feature Mitch Ryder and Jess Goggins on Sept. 6 at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $10. 

Review for Mitch Ryder and Jess Goggins:

Mitch Ryder is a member of the R&B Hall of Fame and has influenced the music of such blue collar rock music artists as Bob Seger, John Mellencamp, and also Bruce Springsteen whose version of the song "Devil With a Blue Dress" was part of the No Nukes concert album in the early 1980s. He has also been cited as a primary musical influence by Ted Nugent and gave Winona her stage name.

Homegrown and raised in the Northeast corner of Alabama, singer/songwriter Jess Goggans puts her entire soul into her music and every ounce of her heart into every single performance. Recognized for her sultry southern grit, soulful melodies and high-energy stage presence, it is said that you can literally feel her voice moving through you. Jess’ music defies genre; it’s been referred to as “get down music,” with influences of funk, rock and blues. She is accompanied by some of the finest musicians in the Southeast.

Music has been in the Goggans family for generations; Jess’ father, who plays keys on her debut record Reality (released in 2014), made his mark in the 70s touring with Sam and Dave. Jess herself has been owning the stage since the early age of five.
