BLOOMFIELD, NJ -  Local DJ/recording artist Adam Cruz is hosting an artist networking and registration drive Saturday October 14 at the Afro-Brazilian Cultural Center of NJ in Bloomfield. The event, “New Jersey Drive” will feature art and music solely by New Jersey based artists who will network while encouraging voter registration. 

“This event has been a long-time vision to combine art, music and voter registration because I feel that we aren’t doing enough to spread the word in encouraging New Jerseyans to register and vote. Whether you’re a recording artist, music performer, visual artist, designer or author, “New Jersey Drive” welcomes all creatives in the state to come together and network,” says Cruz.

 While not required in order to attend, Cruz is also manufacturing a step and repeat backdrop as well as a printed booklet that will contain information and advertisements from participating artists. E-mail adamcruz@mixtapesessions.com if you're interested in being included in the backdrop and booklet. Deadline for inclusion is Monday, October 2.
