BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - The Infernos did not disappoint the large crowd that came out for the first of four summer concerts in the park. The charismatic group had the crowd singing and dancing all night long.
The band members took turns engaging the crowd to clap, swing their arms, and dance along to their repertoire of familiar oldies, motown and new pop songs. The band of four horns, a guitarist, a keyboard player, drummer, and lead singers played a complete set with multiple costume changes. Their song list included Diana Ross' "Ain't No Mountain High Enough", "Love Train" to Bruno Mars' "Happy" and their signature Barry White's "You're the First, the Last, My Everything" and much more.
The concert goers had the opportunity to stop by the tables set up by concert sponsors including Autumn Lake Healthcare at Berkeley Heights, Smith Chiropractic and Taylor Rental who all had free give aways. The free concerts are presented by the Recreation Commission's Special Events Committee and through the partnership with the Berkeley Heights Business Community are brought to the community through their season long sponsors: Berkeley Aquatic Club, Taylor Rental, Rotary Club of Berkeley Heights, Smith Chiropractic Foundation and Grain & Cane Gastrotruck. There are drawings at each concert for gift certificates to Goodman's Deli, Delicious Heights and Dimaios.
Weather permitting, this week's concert is scheduled for Wednesday, July 25 featuring The Jersey Four, a Four Seasons tribute band. This week's concert is sponsored by Valairco Heating and Cooling and Prestige Diner, who has donated hot dogs.
