In celebration of the 40th Anniversary of The Boilermaker Road Race race officials have planned a jam-packed musical celebration at the annual post-race party. Central New York's biggest bands will all perform for racers and spectators and they're bringing in a special headliner.

As it does every year the post-race party will take place on Boilermaker Sunday, July 9th, from 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the back lot of the F.X. Matt Brewery. Platinum Recording Artist and 70s Disco Diva Maxine Nightingale will bring us right back to where the Boilermaker started from with her hit "Right Back Where We Started From" and other popular hits. Accompanying Nightingale will be local favorite Showtime with performances by members of Classified, Gridley Paige and more.

This event is sponsored by the Utica Observer-Dispatch, celebrating their 200th anniversary, and First News with Keeler in the Morning on WIBX 950. Don't miss all the fun of Boilermaker with this Rockin' 40th race extravaganza.
