The family band known as Chevelle will bring rock-hard music to the stage at Chevy Court when they make their debut appearance at the Great New York State Fair at 8 pm on Thursday, August 24, Acting Fair Director Troy Waffner said today.
Brothers Pete and Sam Loeffler and brother-in-law Dean Bernardini are touring behind the group’s eighth album, “The North Corridor.” All of their major-label albums have hit the top 20 on the Billboard albums chart and three hit #1 on the hard rock albums chart. The new album marks a return to the heavier, harder sound of Chevelle’s earliest work with mature, message-oriented lyrics that reflect two decades of writing and the changes in their lives.
“We work hard to produce a lineup that has something for everyone, and I know music fans who like their music loud and hard will enjoy an evening with Chevelle. They’re an important part of the most diverse and best lineup in Chevy Court history,” said Waffner.
The show takes place on the first of two Three Dollar Thursdays, when admission to the Fair is just $3. All concerts at Chevy Court are free with your admission. Chevrolet’s sponsorship makes possible the best lineup of free national touring acts at any state fair.
