Date Time

*** Midnight Star’s concert will take place at approximately 8:30 p.m. ***

Synth-funk band Midnight Star will end a day of soul, R&B and funk on the Chevy Court stage at the Great New York State Fair as headlining band for the annual Syracuse JAMS FunkFest Saturday, September 3. The band rode to fame on the back of hits such as “Freak-A-Zoid" and “Operator.” FunkFest, featuring local and national groups throughout the day, is produced in partnership with Syracuse Joined Artists, Musicians and Singers, Inc.

Syracuse JAMS President Reggie Siegler said, “The Funk Fest provides an opportunity for local and regional bands to showcase their talents on a large-scale professional platform while opening for national recording artists. It fills a void for diverse communities to enjoy age and culturally specific entertainment attracting many to see themselves represented at the Fair.”

Syracuse JAMS describes its mission as building “pathways to the creative economy for artists who have been traditionally not included by hiring their services and by connecting them to other economic opportunities.”

All concerts in the Chevrolet Music Series are free with Fair admission. Concerts at the Fair are sponsored by Chevrolet.
