Description

Legendary Texas blues band The Fabulous Thunderbirds return to the Great New York State Fair for the first time in 30 years for a 2 p.m. show on Friday, Aug. 25 at Chevy Court.

Kim Wilson founded the Thunderbirds in 1974.  His hard-edged vocals helped the band’s best-known single, “Tuff Enuff,” crack the top 10 of the Billboard charts and become part of the soundtrack of two major films in 1986.  Wilson calls the T-birds “an American band,” because they have blended many styles of music into their base of traditional blues.  The great bluesman Muddy Waters once called Wilson his favorite harmonica player.

The Fabulous Thunderbirds’ only other performance at the Fair was on August 31, 1987.

Concerts at Chevy Court are sponsored by Chevrolet.  All Chevy Court shows are free with Fair admission.
