MONTCLAIR, NJ — Tickets are available for the third annual “Concert for Brendan” on Nov. 25, the day after Thanksgiving, at the Wellmont Theater in Montclair, featuring New

Jersey favorite Southside and the Asbury Jukes with local "The Suyat Bank" bringing their talent to the stage this year.

As it has in the past, the night will kickoff with a special tribute to Brendan Tevlin, a 19-year-old Livingston resident who was fatally shot on June 25, 2014 while sitting at a traffic light in West Orange, to the sound of area Pipe & Drum bands.

Born and raised in Livingston, Tevlin was extremely active in Livingston Youth Soccer and Lacrosse Clubs. He was a graduate of Seton Hall Prep and had just finished his freshman year at the University of Richmond in Virginia. Tevlin was also a bagpiper for the Friendly Sons of the Shillelagh Band, a caddy at area golf courses, an avid surfer, community service advocate and friend to many.  

Friends of the Tevlin family, who coordinated the annual event as a way to gather during the holiday season and celebrate Brendan’s life and legacy with great music and good vibes, invite members of the public to schedule this event into their Thanksgiving weekend plans.

Proceeds from the event will go toward the Brendan Tevlin Memorial Fund, established for the redevelopment of an athletic field at Seton Hall Prep in his name as well as scholarship awards.

Can Frelinghuysen At Least Stand with Working Families On His Way Out?

February 25, 2018

On January 29, Congressman Rodney Frelinghuysen announced his decision to retire.  Presumably he is now free to vote his conscience rather than blindly go along with his party’s agenda against the interests of the working class in America.

On February 14, he voted to support a bill that allows usurious credit card rates to apply when loans are sold from one institution to another.
