The Nightfall Concert Series, produced by Chattanooga Presents, continues its 31st season on Friday with a series of free Friday-night concerts held at Miller Plaza in downtown Chattanooga. Each Friday through Aug. 31 (with the exception of June 8 and 15 during Riverbend), Nightfall will showcase a broad spectrum of musical genres featuring a local band at 7 p.m., followed by a headline show by a national artist at 8 p.m., many of whom are performing for the first time in Chattanooga.

Review for Ruby Velle and the Soulphonics:

Headlining Nightfall this Friday will be Ruby Velle and the Soulphonics. An Atlanta-based band who are heirs to the throne of the old-school Motown masters, Ruby Velle and the Soulphonics come armed with deep, raw funk steeped in a southern soul style. They have blazed a trail with their new music and shared the stage with Gary Clark Jr. and Kendrick Lamar.

The local band Function will open Fridays show at 7 p.m. Also known as Function: with a C, this band returns to the Nightfall stage with their soulful rocking blend of jazz and R&B. Function previously won the 2014 Road to Nightfall and went on to play the TVFCU Stage of Riverbend ...
