Throwback Thursday: The J. Geils Band at Mohegan Sun Arena 2009

99.1 PLR celebrates 50 years! This week we are celebrating another great year in our history: 2009!

That year PLR welcomed The J. Geils Band to Mohegan Sun Arena for a very special New Year’s Eve performance. It was the first time in over a decade these Massachusetts rocks had played in Connecticut. The J. Geils Band certainly gave the thousands in attendance a great show on a very cold, snowy night in Uncasville.

Today we look back at that show…
