2012 Full Moon Jam Concert Series Set to Begin

May 09, 2012

The annual Full Moon Jam concert series is set to kick-off during the first week of May. The concert series is hosted every Tuesday and Thursday evenings in the 810 State Street venue. This year the local favorites who play country, bluegrass, nostalgia, and rock and roll are all back along with some new bands to our area that bring with them a new sound to old favorites. All concerts begin at 7:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays from May through September. Concessions and restroom facilities are located on site, limited seating is available however bring your own comfortable chair and pick your own spot. There is never a charge for the Full Moon Jam Concerts.

Last year the city hosted a tribute series that saw crowds of 1200 to 1500 each evening. This series featured bands giving tribute to such greats as the Eagles, AC/DC, Journey, and Aerosmith. In response to the great turnout the tribute series is being brought back as part of Full Moon Jam concerts. This year the tribute series is kicked-off with Rob Caudill bringing his look-alike and sound-alike performance to the stage honoring Rod Stewart. In June Silver Bullet will be performing a tribute to the iconic Bob Seger featuring “Turn the Page”, “Like a Rock” and “Old Time Rock and Roll” among others. Later in the season Blue Moon Swamp, John Foggerty’s Creedence Clearwater Revival tribute will take the stage, bringing back memories of the 60’s, Vietnam, and the days of Woodstock, “Proud Mary”, “Susie Q”, and “Bad Moon Rising.” Back by popular demand this year is Seven Bridges the Eagles tribute who received standing ovations from the Bristol crowd. The season will end on a high note, just like last year, with Hell’s Bells the ever popular AC/DC tribute band.
This year the concert series is being sponsored by the City of Bristol Tennessee, Charter Media, the Bristol Herald Courier, and new sponsor Wells Fargo Bank.
