Tribute concerts, unlike their traditional counterparts, offer audiences a chance to see a band's oft-forgotten but multitalented doppelgängers or long-lost spirit animals. Encourage underappreciated artists with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two general-admission tickets to the Blues Brothers Tribute Concert & Benefit (up to a $30 value). The concert takes place on Saturday, May 21 at 7 p.m. at the outdoor NWGB Amphitheatre on Benton Place Campus in Ringgold.
The Blues Brothers Tribute Concert & Benefit headliners Josh Livingston and Jarrod Millsaps don the trademark garb of archetypal songsters Jake and Elwood Blues as they strut their way through a selection of tuneful favorites played by the KZ/106 Stratoblasters, endowing each soul-sullying performance with their own personal touch. Show-goers can set up stadium chairs and blankets on the ampitheatre's cozy outdoor grass hilltop, shaking their hips to classic hits under the stars after cloaking themselves in reanimated suits and shades. The all-ages venue boasts free parking, as well as concessions and spirits, and proceeds benefit the Chattanooga Market, a nonprofit outdoor market home to an eclectic array of harmonica-blowing soul men disguised as vendors.
