FANWOOD, NJ -- Fanwood's Glenn Stuart of B Street Band will be among the performers of the NJ Shore Musicians Online Music Festival that takes place Memorial Day Weekend (May 23-25) on Facebook Live.
The event has assembled a lineup of the best local Jersey Shore musicians, each of whom will perform their favorite songs for a 30- to 45-minute set curated to lift our spirits in these challenging "shelter in place" times. More importantly, the event will also raise some money to help the most vulnerable among our community who are facing greater challenges during the shutdown of most businesses.
The event is an effort to keep the Jersey shore music scene alive through challenging times.
"We will be live-streaming on Facebook, a virtual visit to your favorite Jersey Shore bar by watching your favorite musicians playing in their own home stage, only you will be joining from home," said Stuart in an interview with TAPintoSPF. "As Bruce Springsteen sang, Reason to Believe and Waiting on a Sunny Day, we will get through this period and during this time, now more than ever, we need to look out for each other."
"To make this festival epic, your help is needed. Visit www.facebook.com/groups/672353783567308," he said."
