Tern Rounders performing at the Truck America Festival

The final day of last weekend’s three-day Truck America Festival, held at the Full Moon Resort in Big Indian may have been light in people, but it was loaded with spirit.

As a member of the Albany-based Tern Rounders, I felt very fortunate to have been invited to be one of the three Capital Region bands (along with We Are Jeneric and Sgt. Dunbar & the Hobo Banned) to participate in the festival – fortunate and a bit nervous too, not knowing what to expect from playing at a brand new music festival. Regardless, last Sunday couldn’t have been a better day for a drive down to the Catskills, with the sun beaming a summer preview.

We were anxiously anticipating what we would find there. Hundreds of people? Big amphitheater stages? Crowds so big they ran out of food?



Festival Fever: Truck America Festival, 4/30-5/2/10

Friday, April 9th, 2010

Truck AmericaRobin and Joe Bennett (of the band Goldrush) have made quite a name for themselves as entrepreneurs by organizing the British indie-music Truck Festival, as well as several spin-offs – the Wood Festival and the OX4 Festival.

Now for the first time they’re bringing their unique brand of festival fever stateside with the inaugural Truck America Festival, slated to take place at the Full Moon Resort in Big Indian in the Catskills from Friday-Sunday, April 30-May 2.

We don’t have a schedule of performances yet, but the line-up of bands for the three-day bash certainly looks mighty tasty.
