Music:

Jimmy Hall and friends featuring Kenny Greenberg
Songbirds South Stage
Dates: December 28, 2018 - Time: 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
 
Jimmy Hall first gained notoriety as the lead vocalist, saxophonist, and harmonica player for the band Wet Willie, which emerged from Mobile, Alabama in 1970. His unique brand of R&B-infused rock and roll swagger propelled the group’s “Keep On Smilin’” to the Top 10 on the Billboard singles chart in 1974. After five albums with Capricorn Records, Wet Willie moved to the Epic label in 1977, carrying the singles “Street Corner Serenade” and “Weekend” to the Top 40 along with five other songs to land in the Top 100. As a solo artist, Jimmy appeared in the Top 40 yet again with “I’m Happy That Love Has Found You” in 1980. Jimmy has just concluded 50 dates with the Jeff Beck group on the 2018 world tour across Europe and the United States. Photo and information about this event are from https://www.chattanoogafun.com/event/jimmy-hall-and-friends-featuring-kenny-greenberg/9728/

Jess Goggans Band presents a tribute to Janis Joplin
Songbirds South Stage
Dates: December 28, 2018 - Time: 9:00 PM to 11:59 PM
 
Think Susan Tedeschi meets a mature Janis Joplin. Jess Goggans is new to WOSRadio and we’re so glad we discovered her music. Her powerhouse vocals are gritty and emotionally-charged (and I hear she’s an artist in the kitchen as well) and her band plays a mean blues groove. – WOSR, Women of Substance Radio. 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. Photo and information about this event are from
