The Vinny’s are a classic rock cover band from right here in Union County. They put their own spin on the classics in a very loud, rock and roll fashion, with influences ranging from the Beatles and Bowie to Eric Clapton and Tom Petty. Katfish Lucy features the Jersey Shore Rock, Reggae, Blues and Funk with five musicians who have been playing the both locally and nationally for many years.

While enjoying the wonderful music, refreshments may be purchased from Benito’s Jersey Curbside Eats or Danny’s Soft Serve Ice Cream.  Attendees can also pack a picnic basket, bring lawn chairs or blankets and enjoy the music under the stars.
