CLARK – The Union County Summer Arts Festival concert series continues its 51st season of music on Wednesday, Aug. 10, with an evening of Jersey Shore Soul performed by JoBonanno & the Godsons. This free concert begins at 7:30 p.m. at Oak Ridge Park in Clark.
JoBonanno and the Godsons have been electrifying audiences in the tri-state area since 1992 with their infectious style of Jersey Shore get-up-and-dance rock and soul music. Considered one of the Top Ten bands in New Jersey, they have opened shows for James Brown, Jerry Lee Lewis, The B-52s, Joan Jett, The Stylistics, Gary U.S. Bonds, Mitch Ryder, and Eddie Money. On numerous occasions, they’ve been joined on stage by the likes of Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi. In 2003 and 2007, they appeared at Giants Stadium before Bruce and the E Street Band took the stage.
Sponsored by Union Center National Bank and the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders, the Summer Arts Festival concerts continue throughout August on Wednesday evenings beginning at 7:30 p.m. The remaining concerts in the series will be held at Oak Ridge Park in Clark and at Echo Lake Park on the Mountainside-Westfield border.
