Jordan Hallquist & The Outfit

Taking on the persona of the “broken, bruised and scarred” working man, Hallquist often appropriates Springsteen’s recent world-weary tone. He also shares his sense of dynamics, along with his love for seminal three-chord rock ‘n’ roll.

Jennifer Hope & The FNG’s 

If Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours had been written and recorded in Nashville it would’ve sounded a lot like this.

Jennifer Hope Brumlow (vocals/guitar), Todd Garland (drums), John Lazenby (bass/banjo), Callie Harmon (guitar/mandolin/lap steel)

Gabriel Newell & Muddy Soul

Newell may well be the best singer in Chattanooga. His rich, expressive voice, impassioned delivery and richly melodic songs have long made him a contender. But as we all know, that’s merely the beginning.

Sinner of Attention

Shouting “Rock is not dead,” this young trio sets out to prove it—with mixed results. They’ve got attitude to burn, but their grinding, grungy guitar-driven tunes too often settle into a groove and just sit there.

Trevor Card (vocals/guitar), Josh Rader  (bass), Nick Rader (drums)

Whoever wins each night will compete with last week’s winners for the ultimate prize, a headlining gig at Nightfall. Finals take place a 8 p.m on Friday, March 15, at Rhythm & Brews. The ultimate winner will be determined by a panel of judges, not by the fans.

McKay’s Road to Nightfall • Rounds 3 & 4 • $7 • 8 p.m. • Friday, March 8 & Saturday, March 9 • Rhythm & Brews • 221 Market St. •
