Tim McDonald and Friends

Born in Worcester, Massachusetts, Tim migrated to the San Francisco music scene in the early seventies, forming the band Rescue with radio airplay on the renowned rock station KSAN, then going on with the regionally popular Charles Biscuit Band. After a soured recording deal, he went to LA to find musical success, doing studio and live performances at all the major venues for showcasing original talent.

He relocated to Connecticut in the 90’s, where he performed with his band, and solo acoustic acts all over the state. His most notable band projects are the Kortchmar McDonald Band with Danny Kortchmar, guitarist/songwriter for James Taylor and many more, and the ever popular McDonald Teague Band with local legend Burt Teague.

Demolition Derby

It’ll be an exhilarating afternoon of jarring motorsports action in Berlin when JM Motorsport Productions invades the Berlin Lions Agricultural Fair with their famous “World’s Largest Demolition Derby.”

The show features five heats worth of exciting Demolition Derby action. The first three are qualifying events with the final two cars running receiving $100, a trophy and a spot in the championship event. The fourth heat is open to all non-winners of the first three, with two cars from there receiving $50 and moving on to the championship.

That championship event features the eight qualifying cars, with the last car running receiving $900 and a championship trophy. Second place receives $200 and a trophy.

Interested drivers from both near and far are always welcome to participate and be part of the action. For information on how you can be a part of the Demolition Derby, call JM Motorsport Productions at (716) 980-6533 or visit their website.
