We've been telling you about the awesome Rock Festival called Mountain Jam for months now. It's happening next weekend up at Hunter Mountain.

We have a bus going up to next Saturday's portion of Mountain Jam.Saturday's bands include; Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Gary Clark Jr., St. Paul & the Broken Bones, The Strumbellas and many others.

There are so many advantages of taking the bus. You don’t have to worry about driving or parking. Both can be a nightmare. After being at a concert I find it hard to drive a long distance. I think you expend energy at the show and then you are ready to sleep as soon as it’s over. And if you take the bus, you can enjoy some beers at the show and you are with a group of people that are into the same band or artist that you are.

The bus ride is only a few bucks more than the ticket itself. And if you were to buy tickets and drive up, by the time you pay for gas, parking, and a snack, it would be cheaper to just take the bus.

You can still buy tickets through our website. And be listening again on Monday morning for your chance to win a pair of passes for the bus. That will include your ticket to the festival as well. We'll give you a chance to win them at 7:22 and again at 8:22

So don’t miss out. This will be one of those concert adventures that you’ll remember forever.
