The Light of Day Foundation (LOD) announces WinterFest 2024, the annual music festival taking place throughout January in Asbury Park, Red Bank, Montclair, Philadelphia, New York City and Rockland County.
Tusk (the world’s #1 tribute to Fleetwood Mac) with A Celebration Of Three American Troubadours, will perform at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank New Jersey on Friday, January 12. And the main event, “Bob’s Birthday Bash”, headlined by Max Weinberg’s Jukebox will take place at The Basie on Saturday, January 20.
Headed by Max Weinberg, the heartbeat of the E Street Band, The Jukebox will be a truly interactive experience: Guests get to choose from a video menu of over 300 songs — everything from The Beatles to The Stones to Bruce and The E Street Band — and hear the group play ‘em!
Joining Weinberg will be LOD WinterFest favorites Glen Burtnik, Bob Burger, John Merjave, Joe Bellia and Dave Biglin.
Other venues hosting LOD WinterFest 2024 shows include: Asbury Park’s Stone Pony, Wonder Bar, McLoone’s Supper Club, Watermark, and Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel; Deal’s Axelrod Performing Arts Center; Outpost In The Burbs in Montclair; City Wineries in Manhattan and Philadelphia; and the Penguin Rep Theatre in Stony Point, NY.
All performances and events will raise money and awareness for the continuing battle to defeat Parkinson’s disease and its related illnesses ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) and PSP (Progressive Supranuclear Palsy) within our lifetime.
Light of Day has grown from a single birthday party/fundraising concert when local music impressario Bob Benjamin was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease into a multi-day festival in the New Jersey metropolitan area to and internationally recognized tour with shows in Canada, England, Wales, Ireland, Sweden, Belgium, Norway, Denmark, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Spain and Australia. Portions of the proceeds from each show are donated to a local Parkinson’s organization.
Tickets for the Bob’s Birthday Bash and Tusk shows (along with various ticket combo packages) go on sale Friday, November 10 at 10AM, and the Basie Center box office at 99 Monmouth Street, Red Bank NJ. Tickets for all other WinterFest 2024 performances will go on sale at the above locations next Friday, November 17.
