We have all been starving for some live music for over a year.  And now, finally concerts and shows that were postponed or even cancelled in some cases, are starting to come back.  Slowly, but surely.  Hopefully by this time next year, everything will be back to normal.  No worries about indoor shows at full capacity, and outdoor festivals happening everywhere.  We've been missing this.

This July is Twin Cities Summer Jam.  This is a festival that happens at Canterbury Park in Shakopee and has been around for a few years.  This festival includes a variety of genres of music. The idea is that there is something for everyone during the three days of this festival.  There are three days, with genres mixing Rock, Country and Pop.  The headliner for the first day, Thursday the 22nd is Lynyrd Skynyrd and we have a chance for you to win some tickets to the show.

Monday morning, listen for the TICKET WINDOW to open.  Then be caller number 10 and you will win a pair of tickets to the show. The tickets will include passes for the whole day which does include Kip Moore, 32 Below and Tim Montana with Skynyrd as the headliner. You can check out the entire 3 day lineup on their website.
