Summer Jam- July 28, 1973!
47 years ago, Jack Brubaker was serving drinks for travellers and rock revelers, as they left the largest gathering of people for a concert in world history. An estimated 600,000 attended the 1-day concert! Summer Jam outdrew Woodstock, featuring the Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers, and The Band. Crowds were treated to a soundcheck on July 27, the day before the festival, as they arrived. This soundcheck has been speculated as being the greatest show by the Grateful Dead in their long-running tenure of live shows! This artifact hangs proudly on our wall, a worker pass from that historic weekend....
