Lakes Jam

(Brainerd, Minn) – Lakes Jam is returning for its 2nd year bigger and better with more bands and an extra day of music to the Brainerd International Raceway (BIR) in June.  Listen to the Related Audio Interview.

Fifteen bands, including national artists Bret Michaels, Gretchen Wilson, Uncle Kracker, Starship Featuring Mickey Thomas, Bucky Covington, Maggie Rose and repeat crowd favorites ThundHerStruck and Chris Hawkey (Rocket Club) plus more great bands will perform at the second annual Lakes Jam on June 26-28. Each year the line-up will feature both Rock and Country bands. An addition to this year’s festival is a great regional line-up of music for Thursday night to get the party started. 

“Our first year was such a success, that we’ve expanded the festival from 2 days to 3 days, and will feature 15 bands!  Whether you love country music or rock and roll, Lakes Jam has something for everyone – it is THE party in the Brainerd Lakes area!" ~Jerry & Annastasia Braam, owners, Lakes Jam
