ROXBURY, NJ – Circle Bowl & Entertainment, a TAPinto Roxbury sponsor, announced Thursday that it will be presenting live music every Friday in its Big Ed’s Tap House and Grill.

The company said each Friday’s music will be by a “surprise” artist.

Patrons of Big Ed’s might have been surprised by the crowd that showed up Friday night for the first installment – a performance by Roxbury based rock band Strange Eclipse. The teenage hard rock quintet blasted a loud, hour-long set.

In its announcement, Circle Bowl suggested that music fans who come to the 9 p.m. Friday night performances can “hang out with the band after the show,” and that’s just what happened when Strange Eclipse wrapped up.
