John Kay & Steppenwolf and two other  make up the first wave of Chevy Court acts that will perform at this year's New York State Fair. 

Acting state Agriculture Commissioner Richard Ball announced the first three concerts Friday. John Kay & Steppenwolf will perform at 8 p.m. Monday, Aug. 25. Bowzer's Rock & Roll Party will take the stage at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 26. Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes at 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 29. 

"This is the first of many announcements of top-quality performances for the Chevy Court stage," Ball said in a statement. "I encourage everyone to circle these dates on your calendar and visit the Great New York State Fair for great food, music, entertainment, and the best of New York state agriculture."

John Kay & Steppenwolf's hits include "Born To Be Wild" and "Magic Carpet Ride." Kay, the group's founder and its lead singer, lived in Buffalo prior to moving to California and starting the band. 

Bowzer's Rock & Roll Party featuring Jon "Bowzer" Bauman is popular among fairgoers. The concert will be held on one of the fair's Senior Days, which offers free attendance for senior citizens. 

Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes mix blues and rock. The group is led by Southside Johnny.

Chevy Court concerts are free with admission to the fair. 

The fair will run from Aug. 21 through Sept. 1.
