The Union County Summer Arts Festival concert series continues on Wednesday July 18, with the band 5 Against 1, a Pearl Jam tribute band, taking the stage at Echo Lake Park in Mountainside.
The free series, presented by the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders,is held at Echo Lake Park during July and moves to Oak Ridge Park in Clark during August.
5 Against 1, which has been performing for over two decades, is dedicated to the raw rock and roll sounds of the grunge era.
While enjoying the music, attendees can purchase refreshments from Benito’s Jersey Curbside Eats and Danny’s Soft Serve Ice Cream or pack a picnic basket, and bring lawn chairs or blankets and enjoy the music under the stars.
