Macon, Ga.  —  
July may be a hot month, but it’s cool in Macon…not in the way of weather, but entertainment.

Saturday’s annual Bragg Jam Music festival is expected to draw in around 3-thousand people from around Georgia to rock out. One night, 15 stages, over 50 bands. It’s all about music against the backdrop of downtown Macon .

Brad Evans, publisher of Macon’s entertainment weekly 11th Hour, says after being a part of the Bragg Jam committee and a patron of the event, he’s got his strategy all planned out for how to tackle the massive event. "There’s always that one band that I know I’ve got to see and this year that band is Thomas Wynn and the Believers. They have a Macon connection. Thomas’ father was the original drummer for Cowboy, which is a Capricorn band here in Macon."

The festival began in 1999 as an event to honor the late brothers Brax and Tate Bragg, who were local musicians who died in a car accident.
