Naughty by Nature made one of their earliest debuts at the stadium during a Fourth of July Celebration back when it was known as Martens Stadium. That concert was a pivotal moment in their career and set the stage for the international success that followed.

The event, hosted by Ms. Theresa, will also feature New Jersey club music producer DJ Lil Man, local R&B group The After Special, and a spectacular fireworks display. The celebration is free and open to the public.
