NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - Thursday night’s New Providence’s concert series, Family Fun Night, was held inside the New Providence Recreational Center, due to predicted precipitation, and did not disappoint. Cindy Gelormini was featured as the main event. Gelormini, a New Providence resident and renaissance woman; with two recorded albums, Destiny and Eternity; writer and producer of her own show on YouTube, "A Taste for Design” on “Diva TV”; and faith leader at Presbyterian Church in New Providence, entertained the crowd with her country, blues and rock music.
Families began to fill the recreational gym with lawn chairs and blankets, to sit and enjoy a music filled evening, some found the music so rhythmically mesmerizing, that it urged them to their feet to dance. Others were so captivated by the melodies, that it drew them as close as possible to the stage, which was the case with several audience members.
The night’s entertainment wasn’t limited to music, but it would have surely been enough, kids were crowded in the back of the gym, where they had the option of having their face-painted or charmed by the elusiveness of card manipulation tricks. No matter what one did, whether they sat and listened or danced to the sounds of Gelormini and company, had their face-painted or tried to figure out the card tricks, there was enough entertainment to go around.
Family Fun Night, is held for four consecutive Thursdays, with only two nights left, July 27th and August 1st, the last night with the added bonus of National Night Out, a day where community members come out to meet and have fun with local law enforcement.
The New Providence Family Fun Night concert series is presented by the New Providence Business Community and are sponsored by Creative Wallcoverings and Interiors, Lantern Hill, Berkshire Hathaway Home Services, The Prestige Diner, Elefante Music, Lions Club International, the Downtown Improvement District, and Zita’s Homemade Ice Cream.
