Thunderbird Summer Jam: Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Watkins Glen Summer Jam will take place on Saturday, July 29th at The Meadow at Hartwood Acres in Allison Park, PA. The show will feature performances by Butler Street Revival playing the music of The Allman Brothers with special guest Chuck Leavell of the Allman Brothers, Chest Fever recreating the music of The Band, and theCAUSE celebrating the music of the Grateful Dead.
