Join us at the Reilly Arts Center on Friday, August 18th, 2023 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Watkins Glen Summer Jam with performances by Steeln’ Peaches, Uncle John’s Band, and Hannah Harber & Thomas Wynn. The music of the Allman Brothers Band, Grateful Dead, and The Band will be honored in celebration of the largest musical gathering ever, Watkins Glen Summer Jam 1973.
A band that faithfully executes as well as creates new interpretations of the ABB’s all-time classics and deep cuts, STEELN’ PEACHES combines members of Florida music heroes (& festival mainstays) Thomas Wynn & the Believers and The Groove Orient. The six-piece band of brothers came together with a natural chemistry and dedication to the ABB’s legendary discography.
