The series will kick off on July 28th at the Cutting Room with Kendall Street Company, a band known for their soulful funk and electrifying performances. The following day, on July 29th, Duane Betts & Palmetto Motel will take the stage at the same venue to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the legendary Watkins Glen concert featuring the Grateful Dead, Allman Brothers Band, and The Band. On the same night, fans can also catch young up & coming jamband One Time Weekend at Hill Country – FREE!
