HELMETTA, NJ - Mother Nature rained on Next to Norm's parade, forcing the cancelation of their July 14 appearance at Helmetta's summer-long Concert in the Park series. However, residents will get another opportunity to hear this Central Jersey's band mix of American classics, British blues and original tunes.

Next to Norm will take the stage at the Maple Street Pavilion for the last performance of the summer series on Friday, Aug. 11 at 7 p.m. This family-friendly event is free. Remember to bring lawn chairs or a blanket to sit on though audience members may want to get up and dance. After all, Bruce Springsteen and the Commitments are only a few on the band's influences.
