Marquette, Mi- August 1st, 2022- This weekend, thousands of Yoopers across the UP came to check out Negaunee’s biggest event of the year: Thunder on The Iron Range! Thunder on the Iron Range is a yearly country music event permitted for all ages.



Some of the best U.P country music artists preformed at the Iron Range, including our very own Adam Carpenter and the Upper Hand! Blackberry Smoke, and international touring outlaw country songwriter Cecil Allen “PeeWee” Moore followed The Upper Hand’s performance this Friday. On Saturday, Winger opened and was followed by Lita Ford, Firehouse, Chad Bordgen & The Collective, Stone Senate, and Spun, leaving fans in awe, gripping the edges of their seats for Sunday. Their waiting was well worth it and Tom Katalin & Highway 41 proved it by starting the night off with a bang. Chasin’ Steel, Band of Heathens and Hellbound Glory played afterwards, closing out the night.
