BELMAR NJ — Belmar’s own holiday musical classic — Beach Music Studios’ Annual Holiday Party — will return for its 13th year on Sunday, December 3 at the iconic Stone Pony in Asbury Park.
Beginning at noon, the festive event will feature performances by the Beach Music Rock Band, Beach Music Studio students and the Danny White Band with “special guests.” A toy drive for children in need this holiday season will once again mark the special occasion.
And word has it that Santa Claus will also make a surprise appearance.
“This is our most-anticipated event of the year, held at one of the most-treasured venues at the Jersey Shore,” said musician Danny White, owner of Beach Music Studios. “The concert gives our students an opportunity to showcase their talents and the toy drive allows us to make the holidays brighter for those needing a helping hand at this time in their lives.
“It’s our way of giving back to our community and to enjoy an afternoon of great entertainment by so many young, talented musicians,” White said. “And the support we receive from the Belmar community for this event is always so overwhelming, each and every year.”
Beach Music Rock Band, known by its acronym BMRB, is certainly a crowd-pleaser, performing tunes that range from early rock ‘n’ roll to rap. What makes BMRB even more impressive is its young talent, with members ranging in age from 8 to 18 — all students at Beach Music Studios. While BMRB has quite a following from appearances at venues in the community throughout the year, the holiday party is its marquee event.
Open to people of all ages, the festivities will feature food courtesy of 10th Avenue Burrito Company, as well as a host of giveaways and raffles with prizes donated by area businesses. Generous supporters have included Brandl restaurant in Belmar, Select Technology Group in Spring Lake and the Lakewood BlueClaws.
Admission is $10 with a donation of a new unwrapped toy for the toy drive, which will benefit the Manna House, a transitional housing facility in Cliffwood Beach for women and children, as well as other families in the Asbury Park/Belmar community.
Tickets are available at Beach Music Studios, 808 Belmar Plaza, or can be purchased on the day of the event.
