Kinderhook - originally Kinderhook Creek - was a popular New Jersey country rock band in the 70s and 80s. They opened for bands including Conway Twitty, Pure Prairie League, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Richie Havens, and New Riders of the Purple Sage. They reunited in 2010 and started playing venues again, including the legendary Stone Pony in Asbury Park. Kinderhook plays a blend of their original music mixed with country and rock classics.
Home Again is a true celebration of Carole King's legend and captures the "Beautiful" spirit of a unique time in music history. Deb De Lucca, joined by her band, takes the audience on a journey through the catalog of Carole King's own recorded hit songs and the songs she has written for other artists.
She began singing beginning with Tapestry in 1971, but was also a well-established songwriter for a decade prior writing songs for other artists including The Shirelles, The Monkees, The Carpenters, and The Drifters.
Concertgoers are encouraged to bring chairs and blankets. Ample parking is available.
