"Riverbend" Music Festival - Saturday June 16th, 2012

Posted on June 16, 2012 with 0 comments

The final day of Riverbend. Headling tonight on the Coke Stage is Lauren Alaina, an American country singer from Rossville, Georgia. Alaina was the runner-up on the tenth season of American Idol. Her debut studio album, Wildflower was released on October 11, 2011.

Get the Led Out stole the show on the Bud Light Stage for a performance that lasted more than 2 hours. 

These talented musicians and diehard Led Zeppelin fans pay rock ’n’ roll homage to the legendary band that created hits like “Stairway to Heaven,” “Ten Years Gone,” and “When the Levee Breaks” in a high-energy live concert.

  • Guitarist Paul Hammond cites a deep love for Led Zeppelin’s music and a desire to present the music from the band’s recordings in live shows as the inspiration for Get The Led Out.
  • Hammond and lead singer Paul Sinclair own Philadelphia’s Fat City Studios, engineering and producing in addition to performing with Get The Led Out and other rock groups.

On the Meo Mio stage Jumbo Deluxe Band played until Riverbend did their traditional fireworks display on the Tennessee River. Jumbo Deluxe is a blues/R&B based band from the Atlanta area, but they play in the Chattanooga area on a regular basis. The band members are James Calvin - Lead vocals, Jeff Moseley - Keys (piano, organ, and synthesizer) and background vocals, Tom King - Drums and background vocals, Kris Phillips- Guitar and Slide Guitar, Jarrett Johnson – Guitar and George Stallings - Bass Guitar and background vocals (and band business manager).  They have a big sound, and play some bluesy tunes like Pride and Joy, Statesboro Blues, Southbound, Cold Shot and Five Long Years.

Kudos to Riverbend for their spectacular fireworks display at the close of the festival!
