It was back in 1945 that a group of McCallie students got together and began singing and playing a brand of Bluegrass music that has gone on now for more than 65 years. The name "Dismembered Tennesseans" seemed good enough a name for a bunch of teenagers who had no long range plans, and they sang their way through school. But somehow the music never stopped, and the band stayed together for the next 65 years, singing and laughing their way across the country - from Florida to Washington to Ohio and Colorado and points between. They played for every local civic group in existence, every charity, and most of the conventions in town looking for cheap entertainment. They have also played at the Annual Chattanooga Riverbend Festival and at Kennedy Center. Performing as opening act for Nightfall on Friday, May 9th 2014 from 7:00-8:00 p.m. Visit the website for more info - nightfallchattanooga.com.
