This is a plea to my Music Family ...this time I need your help
Hi my name is Kimberly Posey Smith, some of you may already know me from our local music scene. I am founder of Chattanooga Bands we are dedicated in supporting Chattanooga's talented musicians & artists I am also booking agent for Ziggy's as well as a local photographer, and Registered with the US Associated Press
The reason for my GoFundMe campaign hasn't anything to do with any of that. It's something much more personal. Its a rare occasion when you read something about my personal home life, in this case I have no other choice but to ask for the help from my Music Family as well as my family and friends...
A few weeks ago my husband was diagnosed with lung cancer.
This was totally unexpected...I thought he had a bad case of pneumonia that he couldn't shake...
It felt like someone punched me in the stomach when the doctor said Mr Smith you have cancer
I heard the words the doctor was saying, but it was as if she was talking to someone else.....like I was listening closely to the bad news that the other patient on the other side of the curtain was getting.
I walked around on auto pilot for days...His brothers and family members would ask for updates...But the only answers I had was I'm not sure, I think so, and I just don't know.
I wasn't able to comprehend what the doctors were explaining to me ...It was to much at one time & not to mention it still hadn't sunkin that my husband has cancer.......It still doesn't feel real...but praise God he has carried me and my husband..
I am asking all my Music Family to think back ....if I had ever helped you on a music project, shot a music video for your band or .took a killer pic of you Rockin on stage....promoted your shows.....streamed your tunes on our podcast..added your show to our calendar.....promoted your shows, booked your band a show ...bought some of your merch.....Please help me ....help me to have peace of mind knowing while I'm doing everything I can to give him the tools to fight this disease......the peace of knowing our electric will still be on and we still have a home to go to .....& Christmas for my son...
Above All PRAY for us.....Pray for Healing

Booking At Ziggy's
Recently I started booking at Ziggy's, and have had been getting requests by bands of different genre.
Ziggy's has been known mostly for booking Underground Metal/Punk bands in Chattanooga, but I
think we can expand this and book other genre as well. I have started booking Bluegrass,Country,
Folk & Blues on Sundays and have the bands to preform in front of Ziggy's bc on Sundays they
don't have Karaoke.
don't have Karaoke.
I have noticed that many local bands, that have not booked Ziggy's don't know the benefits of it.
Ziggy's gives you freedom to be creative with your show (as long as you clean up after) this also
gives you experience. If you are a local band all you need to do is book a date, after you have the date
locked down you have the freedom of building your own line up, setting set times and cover charge
at the door, but with freedom also comes responsibility, you are responsible for paying the other
bands out of cover charge you collect from the door and you are responsible for having a door person
to collect money. There isn't any overhead so split money collected equally.
We do help promote your show
Another thing I don't think everyone realizes is Ziggy's has the best stage of any venue in
Chattanooga..and no one will be micromanaging your show....if you need help with anything or run
into issues we are there to help,
