Gizmo Jam


Jump in the boat and join us for this annual music festival at Gizmo Island on Watts Bar Lake. Located on Gizmo Isle just on the outer banks of Grand Vista Bay in Rockwood and near Thief Neck Island, locals love spending a day on the water with good friends and good music.This festival is only accessible by watercraft. Please be mindful of weather conditions when planning to attend. Live music will be presented all day, so grab a float and come join the fun! This year's line-up includes Public Apology, The Temper Evans Band and The Dixie Highway Band! Proceeds will benefit the DAV of Roane County.


Public Apology - Local favorite featuring some of the best bluegrass musicians in the region! With a grassroots fan base and gritty sound, PA is sure to be your new favorite. 

Temper Evans - The Temper Evans Band is an exciting, five piece progressive Cover band raised on traditional Country Music, with Southern Rock, Blues, Pop, Bluegrass and Gospel Music roots. Temper Evans Band musicians are comprised of a variety of musical styles and influences. 

The Dixie Highway Band - The Dixie Highway Band is not your typical country band. When these five musicians play together, they produce a unique sound with a style all it’s own and they’ve been perfecting that sound night after night for years. Their hard work is beginning to pay off as Dixie Highway Band show credits include opening for legendary artists like Sammy Kershaw, Amy Grant, Carlene Carter, Sawyer Brown, Kansas, Foreigner, Joe Diffie and Diamond Rio.
