Nightfall Preview: A.J. Ghent Band

Chattanooga (WDEF) The free Nightfall concerts continue during Riverbend.

This week, the A. J. Ghent Band headlines the show at Miller Plaza on Friday night.

What makes Ghent stand out is the instrument he plays as well as the music.

He started playing the lap steel guitar that his father and uncle played in church.

But to make it more "rock," he created an eight-string lap steel and Telecaster guitar hybrid that he plays standing up.

The band plays a modern mix of soul & rock.

Take a listen.

The A. J. Ghent Band plays at 8PM at Miller Plaza Friday night.

Chattanooga’s Joss Scoggins Band will open the show at 7PM.

Take a look at her video from the last album.
