A concert Saturday, May 18, at Center for Creative Arts will feature a teen pop/rock band that opened one of last year's Nightfall shows at Miller Plaza. More Like Me is composed of 14-year-old identical triplets Jared, Jordan and Justin Roberts. Special guests for the evening include Makala & the Man Band and Doc Holladay.

The concert is presented by the Southeast Tennessee/Northwest Georgia Chapter of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans to raise funds for their latest project, Thrivent Builds With Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga.

The Roberts brothers are Thrivent members. They play bass, guitar and drums; write original material; and sing lead and harmony vocals. They have played at venues in Nashville and Chattanooga and produced their first CD last year.

Makala leads the Praise Worship Band at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. Her band will be playing Christian/pop songs.

Doc Holladay has become one of the most in demand new songwriters in Nashville while maintaining a full-time optometry practice. He was voted one of the Top 3 singers/songwriters of 2012 by the alternative weekly Nashville Scene.

He will be performing a few songs with More Like Me that he has written with them.

Thrivent Financial is a Fortune 500 financial services organization set up so that members have a way to give back to their communities, congregations and causes they care about through charitable activities, such as the house-raising for Habitat for Humanity.

"This project is just one example of the real difference we're making in people's lives," said Elaine Burns, events director of the local chapter.

Tickets may be reserved by phone or purchased at the door.
