Chattanooga’s only live music series is celebrating two local bands on Saturday.  Chattanooga Unite:  Healing & Uniting on the River will showcase Behold The Brave and Maria Jordania & No Pressure.

Chattanooga’s Behold The Brave has released a new tune ‘Peaches,’ which organizers expect to hear live for the first time on Saturday.  Behold The Brave is a gritty rock group that writes harmonious tunes with a dose of Southeastern swamp.  Behold The Brave kicks things off at 7 p.m.

Before the featured bands, the series starts with ’Be the Change’ Kids Talent Series at 4:30 p.m.   The Kids Talent Series showcases young talented musicians from the Chattanooga area.  To learn more about the Be the Change Youth Initiative visit their website at  www.bethechangeyi.com/.

The free concert runs from 4-10:30 p.m.  It offers local bands, local food trucks, cold beer and fresh cocktails.  The concert is family friendly and welcomes dogs on leashes.  Organizers are following the mandates set forth by the Hamilton County mayor and the Hamilton County Health Department.  It has made social distancing simple with markings on the lawn.  There will be stations set up with hand sanitizer and will be offering free face coverings for anyone who needs one.

Chattanooga Unite:  Healing & Uniting on the River is a series of six free concerts and is designed to be Chattanooga’s first celebration of the resurgence of summer, community, and local economy.   The free concert series will continue Saturdays through Aug. 22.  For more information visit www.chattanoogaunite.com.
