When Adam McPeak was barely into his teens, he launched his bluegrass band Mountain Thunder, and the band is still going strong seven years later. Adam, a talented mandolinist and a polished emcee, is a native of Max Meadows; his father, Mike McPeak, a former member of the nationally popular McPeak Brothers band from the 1970s, plays guitar and sings for Mountain Thunder. Other band members include singer Lindsey Jackson, and another father-son duo from Max Meadows, banjoist Steve Chrisley and bassist and singer David Chrisley. Specializing in traditional bluegrass as well as bluegrass gospel, Adam McPeak & Mountain Thunder have performed in major regional festivals (including RenoFest), at popular venues (such as Lays Hardware), and on television (such as Song of the Mountains). In 2015 the band released an album The Last Dirt Road on the Kindred Records label; the album, featuring some bluegrass standards alongside original compositions by Mike McPeak, was well-received in bluegrass circles.
