Secret Star Jam

The Secret Star Acoustic Jam is comin’ back to Proctors. Yes, once again, radio station WGNA-FM is teaming up with Proctors in Schenectady to host another Secret Star Jam.

So what is the Secret Star Acoustic Jam? It’s a unique kind of concert concept featuring three country music stars. Here’s how WGNA-FM’s website explains it: “The stars are introduced one by one, each taking a moment to interact with the crowd, then performing one of their many hit songs. Once all three stars are on stage, they each take a turn performing their hits and interacting with you, the audience, in a very unique setting.”
