22nd Deadwood Jam, featuring Styx, could be one of biggest ever

Posted:

A KOTA Territory music festival wrapped up Saturday, and organizers are pretty happy with the turnout.

The 22nd annual Deadwood Jam finished up this evening with a performance by legendary rock band Styx.

Event organizers say it's arguably the biggest headliner they've ever gotten.

That, combined with nice weather, turned this year's festival into one of the best ever.
 
"Friday, we usually plan on about 1,500 to 2,000 people," said Deadwood Jam chairman Bill Pearson. "And on Saturday, we plan on anywhere from 2,500 to 4,000. With Styx this year, we're hoping to hit that 4,000 number."
 
The Jam also had a new feature this year, the wine and brew fest.

It brought together different wineries and breweries from around the region, one of which brought a barrel of grapes for guests to stomp around in.
 
"I think the most fun thing is people have never stomped grapes with their feet before," said Schade Vineyard owner Jim Schade. "And so it's just been a ball to see the looks on their face when they feel those seeds go through their toes."
 
Schade also hoped the wine fest would bring more business to his two-year-old winery in Deadwood.
