The Signal is moving to the old Choo Choo Convention Center

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – Part of the changes at the Chattanooga Choo Choo will include a new music and event space.

The Signal, currently on Chestnut Street near Finley Stadium, is moving to the old Convention Center at the Choo Choo.

They hope to open up as soon as next April (their last show on Chestnut will be in February).

The owners of the music venue will renovate the space into what they promise will be a state-of-the-art concert and event facility.

It will feature both a concert hall and event space, which can be used together or separately.

The concert venue will have the same capacity as the current location.

“The space is absolutely perfect for The Signal,” said Jeff Cannon, owner of Tucker Build, which is doing the work. “Soon Chattanooga will see just what a major improvement it is for live events in the downtown area.”

Signal owner Josh Billue says “We are building something that is unprecedented for the area: a venue with the flexibility to host concerts and other events simultaneously. This means more availability for both performance artists as well as community-driven events.”

The owners hope to book high caliber artists for the new location.
