The Bradley County Relay is recognized as one of the “best of the best” in the Mid-South division.
One of the things that make the Relay for Life of Bradley County so special is the outstanding free entertainment lineup each year.
Relay Entertainment chairman David Orr has confirmed the Dexter Thomas Band will perform at this year’s event on Saturday, May 7 in downtown Cleveland around the Courthouse Square.
The Relay kicks off at 9 p.m. on the evening of May 6 and continues until 10 p.m. on Saturday evening.
The Dexter Thomas Band’s best of the 1960s and ’70s R&B and rock and roll will be showcased Saturday at noon.
Since its inception in 1995, The Dexter Thomas Band has been performing high-energy shows throughout the South in a wide variety of venues including headline performances before tens of thousands. The band’s crowd-satisfying mix of ’60s and ’70s music, and the band’s unique blend of talents, have garnered a large following and made the band a popular repeat booking.
The 10-piece band features a dynamic combination of male and female lead vocals, allowing for maximum stylistic diversity. Four members of the band have music degrees. Individual members have performed outside of the band both nationally and internationally.
The band has been a popular attraction at festivals and special events and has opened for such acts as Michael Bolton, Kansas, The Guess Who, Leon Russell and many others. The band has also headlined the Conoco Stage at the annual Riverbend Festival in Chattanooga numerous times.
The American Cancer Society Relay for Life represents the hope that those lost to cancer will never be forgotten, that those who face cancer will be supported, and that one day cancer will be eliminated. Relay for Life offers everyone in the community an opportunity to participate in the fight against cancer.
Make plans now to join us at the Relay on the evening of May 6 and all day May 7.
