Glimmer Grass will be performing on Saturday, April 30 from 1:00-4:30 pm.
The Glimmer Grass Band is a group of friends that happens to love and play acoustic music. Playing together since 2004, the band enjoys playing venues that are comfortable and friendly to their families, friends and fans. GGB performs regularly in Manasquan and Spring Lake Heights, NJ, plus at various private parties throughout the year. In addition to an active schedule gigging around the shore, the band has recorded two CD’s.
The Thomas Wesley Stern Band will entertain Saturday, April 30 from 4:30-7:30. The genre of music they play is folk/traditional. A quartet of self-taught by-the-ear musicians, subconsciously breeding traditional folkways with contemporary frame of mind and life, the four trade instruments, sing together in harmony and unison and bid any onlookers to join right in.
The Incinerators will be performing from 1:00-5:00 pm on Sunday, May 1. Regarded as one of the most entertaining high energy blues bands in the area, The Incinerators play the music they love–hard driving blues. If you’re a fan of searing guitars, blistering harmonica and smoky vocals all played over a foot stomping back beat, then you’re going to really enjoy these guys. Their music “aims at the feet”, so be forewarned and bring dancing shoes, because you can bet you’re going to be joining in on the fun. Veterans of international and large stage blues festivals, intimate acoustic venues and everything in between, their powerful blues style has brought them critical acclaim wherever they’ve performed.
The Incinerators perform their own original music and covers by these representative artists: Stevie Ray Vaughn, Muddy Waters, T-Bone Walker, Little Richard, John Lee Hooker, Bo Diddley, Albert King, The Ventures and Hollywood Fats. The Incinerators are John Fernandez – guitar and lead vocals, Marcos Orozco – harmonica madman, Gregg Scott – guitar and lead vocals, Rich Coccoli – bass guitar and vocals and John Fanizzo – drums and percussion.
Ed Agro, piano stylist, will be entertaining Sunday, May 1 from 5:00-7:00 pm.
