RAHWAY, NJ - Mayor Samson Steinman and the Rahway City Council are proud to present four free outdoor concerts as part of the Mayor’s Summer Concert Series in Rahway. The concerts will take place directly outside of the Union County Performing Arts Center at 1601 Irving St. each Thursday night in August. All shows will begin at 7:30 p.m. In the event of inclement weather, the concerts will be held inside the Union County Performing Arts Center on the venue’s Mainstage.

On Thursday, Aug. 11, join Peace of Woodstock and The Family Stone help spread the spirit of the sixties to the citizens of Rahway. Peace of Woodstock pays tribute to Woodstock, the famous three day festival of peace, music, love, and fun, that helped define an entire generation. The show will take you on a musical journey from the acoustic opening act of the Woodstock experience, Richie Havens, all through the closing moments of the festival with the explosive, electric sounds of Jimi Hendrix. During an era of injustice and inequality, living legends the Family Stone broke down barriers with their psychedelic funk and powerful lyrics. With original founding members Cynthia Robinson, Gregg Errico, and Jerry Martini as part of the lineup, the band performs Sly and the Family Stone hits like “Everyday People” and “Dance To The Music” with the same enthusiasm as they did in the ’60s and ’70s. The Family Stone and friends always have fans coming out in droves to their thrilling performances.
