6th Annual Uncle Sam Jam/Power in the Park Classic Car Show:

The 6th annual Uncle Sam Jam will be taking place this Saturday at Powers Park. I've posted some pics of the first event, which we staged down behind Brown's. That day, we had 7 bands perform, along with belly dancers, rides for the kids, as well as wine tasting. I worked on the first event with Traci Christopher, then of Revolution Hall. We had a great crowd, until the rain hit that day. It's tough doing outdoor events in early October because of the weather, so the following year I moved the event to early September, at Riverfront Park. But attendance was not where we felt it should be,plus it was tough having 6 or 7 bands in a 6 hour time frame. In 2009 I moved the event again to Powers Park, and cut it down to three bands. Attendance spiked more than 50% the first year in it's new home. Last year, we added the classic car show and saw attendance spike even higher, with more than 2,000 attending over the course of the day. This years musical lineup includes, Stuck on Stupid at 2 p.m. --Emerald City, the Reunion Tour at 4 - and the Blue Machine, with Tommy Love at 6. The car show begins at 12 p.m., and is presented by the South Troy Timing Association. You can register your vehicle right at the park also. Food and drinks will be available, so grab a lawn chair, bring the kids, and come join us to ENJOY TROY! Read the Saturday edition of the Record for more info. See you all there. Guitars and Cars --a wonderful concept
