The folks behind the Chattanooga, TN event were able to turn mud into gold with an impromptu indoor concert

Barry and Lord Taco spent some time with the folks who turned a rainy Moon River Sunday into a memorable impromptu concert at a Chattanooga concert venue. It's a case study in timing, luck, thinking outside of the box and building relationships. In about two hours, organizers were able to move a half dozen artists and 3,000 fans to a city-owned venue. And, the staff showed up to make popcorn, too.

Moon River co-founder Drew Holcomb, AC Entertainment President Ted Heinig, and others join the show to discuss the memorable weekend.
