GLENMONT — The Troy Savings Bank Music Hall and WEXT Radio recently announced the second show in its Drive-In Concert Series!
The Wheel, arguably the area’s favorite local Grateful Dead tribute band, takes the stage at the Jericho Drive-In Theatre on Tuesday, July 21, at 8 p.m.
The special concert is paired with a bonus movie showing at 9:30 p.m.
Unlock the door, buckle up, put it in gear, and enjoy the ride with the Capital District’s most authentic Grateful Dead Tribute Band, The Wheel.
Founded in 2010 by Andy Morse, who is well known as “Andy the Music Man” to many local children. Inspired by years of chasing the Grateful Dead and current incarnations around, he formed The Wheel. It’s been said the medicine wheel is a “peaceful interaction among all living beings on Mother Earth-it represents harmony, balance and connections.” The Wheel applies that philosophy to their live shows.
This is the second performance announced in The Hall and WEXT’s Drive-in Concert Series. The first is a performance by indie rockers, Jocelyn and Chris. That performance kicks off the series on Thursday, July 9, at 8 p.m. at the Jericho Drive-in.
After the concert, patrons are invited to stay and enjoy a screening of the 2019 film, “Yesterday.”
Tickets are available to both performances. For more information, visit troymusichall.org.
