BELMAR, NJ — It may be time for summer’s swan song, but there is still plenty of music to enjoy at Waves on Main, the go-to destination for fine dining and entertainment.

“Come and celebrate Labor Day weekend with us,” said Kathy Farese, who owns the landmark restaurant at the corner of 10th Avenue and Main Street with her husband and chef Lou Farese. “We have a full weekend of live entertainment, and chef Lou and his staff have been busy in the kitchen getting ready for the holiday weekend. Why go anywhere else when we have it all at Waves on Main.”

Singer/songwriter Joshua Van Ness will perform for the first time at Waves on Main on Sunday, September 3 beginning at 7 p.m. He’s been a longtime favorite on the Central Jersey music circuit, known for his musical talent on the guitar and telling his story in song.
