Hungry Farmers Band Annual Thanksgiving Reunion
Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, there were dozens of rock, folk and country bands that took the stage at the Hungry Farmer. In 1979, the manager hosted a Thanksgiving meal on the day before the holiday for all of those musicians who didn't have family to dine with the next day. They ate their meals, and then played music together. Now, every year, these bands are invited to return for the Hungry Farmers Band Annual Thanksgiving Reunion at Stargazers' Theatre.
