He has been awarded top vocalist in the Asbury Park Music Awards, directed and debuted as Hedwig in Hedwig in the Angry Inch for Asbury Park's first long-running theatrical production, and has produced, directed, and supported many local acts, rock musicals, and touring bands. He fronts a tribute project "Back to Black", a re-creation of the entire Amy Winehouse album with an orchestra of 25 that has sold-out both Asbury Lanes and Asbury Park’s new House of Independents, Remember Jones has also performed a theater re-creation of JOE COCKER's MAD DOGS & ENGLISHMEN with a 20-piece band to sold out audiences.    Remember Jones has created live show experiences as Producing Artistic Director of the historic STRAND THEATER in Lakewood, NJ (including the first ever to present and sing R. Kelly's Trapped in the Closet Live alongside a 20-piece orchestra). “Whether you see him fronting a piano, a 4-piece band, or a soul orchestra of 25, Remember Jones evokes the energy of the great front men and women, with one of a kind song styling…the vocal child of Tom Jones and Patti LaBelle", says award-winning singer/songwriter Glen Burtnik.  "Fiercely passionate frontman... one for the ages... holds the audience in the palm of his hand..." - Live For Live Music        FACEBOOK.COM/REMEMBERJONESMUSIC

ATLANTIC WATCH PIPES & DRUMS   WEST STAGE 1:30 – 1:45 PM                 & RANDOMLY ON THE MIDWAY

Atlantic_Watch_Photo_2015The Atlantic Watch was founded in 1993 as a Scottish-oriented group that emulates the 42nd Royal Highland Regiment: the legendary Black Watch of Scotland. From its outset, the band’s purpose has been to perpetuate the rich musical heritage of the Celtic people through highland piping, drumming and dancing. In addition to a repertoire of traditional Scottish music, the band also regularly entertains with Irish, Welsh and American tunes.  The Atlantic Watch is a teaching band which offers free instruction in the Great Highland Bagpipe, Snare Drum, Flourishing Tenor Drum, Bass Drum and Highland Dance. No musical or dance experience is required—simply the desire to learn.  Our band embraces family values and our members are of all ages, both genders, and come from a wide variety of backgrounds. Membership in the Atlantic Watch is free and open to all. All that we ask of our members is that they participate in band events. Based in Red Bank, New Jersey, the Atlantic Watch plays regularly in and around central New Jersey as well as the mid-Atlantic region. In addition, the band has played with distinction in Hawaii, New Orleans, Scotland, Bermuda, and Nova Scotia.  The Atlantic Watch always welcomes new members for piping, drumming, dancing, and participating in our Color Guard.  ATLANTICWATCH.ORG or (732) 788-8900.

BOBBY BYRNE SHOW     WEST STAGE – 4:00 – 5:00 PM

Bob_Byrne_CruiseThe Bobby Byrne Show is a unique blend of music that features Broadway show-stoppers, Irish ballads, Italian arias, hilarious novelty numbers, Elvis Presley rockers and old time sing-a-long songs.  Bobby is a favored entertainer of many celebrities, having performed at parties hosted or attended by George Steinbrenner, Rudolph Giuliani, Donald Trump, Mary Higgins Clark, Lee Iacocca, and David Dinkins, to name just a few.  He has played Carnegie Hall twice, the PNC Arts Center several times, the Philadelphia Academy of Music, and on the main altar for the centennial of St. Patrick’s Cathedral.  He has hosted and entertained thousands of Bobby Byrne fans aboard cruise ships to Europe, Alaska, Bermuda, and the Caribbean, and thousands more on custom “Bobby Byrne tours” to Ireland, Italy, Canada and Spain, New Orleans, Las Vegas, Branson, and more.  To describe his show by its content does nothing to convey the effect this man has on an audience, but here are a few sample reviews: The Asbury Park Press - “Bobby Byrne has that gift, that overworked word ‘charisma” if you will.  He grabs the audience right off and never lets go, through the two acts of his show.  Part of the reason may be that he never holds back...he’s a brilliant, exciting performer.” --Pat Hipp     New York Magazine - “The crowd… was busy cheering, yelling, clapping and singing along with Bobby Byrne. This was Spring Lake, the Irish Riviera, at its boisterous best.” --Weekend Therapy by Vincent Frontero  BOBBYBYRNE.COM

The_Nerds_(2)The Nerds (Spaz, Mongo, Biff and Stretch) are one of the Jersey Shores most loved bands!  The band originated in 1985 and their stage show and banter was largely influenced by Monty Python and David Letterman’s love of the absurd and Howard Stern’s disregard for tact.  The Nerds have performed on MTV, “The View”, Carson Daly, and several other TV shows. They have played many celebrity hosted events for A&E, 'The Ed Show', even Uncle Floyd.

 THE SNAKES     EAST STAGE – 2:15 – 3:45 PM

Snakes_Bio_Pic_1Hailing from parts of New Jersey far and wide, the Snakes are a traveling band of musicians who happily play their tunes wherever lovers of good music can be found. If Guinness & Harp can also be found...so much the better!  The Snakes burst onto the Jersey music scene nearly 10 years ago and quickly found a welcoming home along that stretch of seashore known as the Irish Rivera.  Combining traditional instruments such as banjo, whistle, accordion and mandolin, with a driving foundation of guitar, bass and drums, the Snakes began filling pubs and festivals with their unique blend of rock, traditional and folk songs.  The bands popularity grew even more with the release of their original song “I Love St. Patrick s Day on the Jersey Shore”, which remains the unofficial anthem of St. Pat’s celebrations up and down the Jersey Shore.   In addition to covering acts like the Pogues, the Dubliners and the Clancy Brothers, the Snakes frequently play classic rock and blues, all performed with an Irish kick! The end result is what the Examiner.com calls “One of the most popular Irish bands in New Jersey!”  All the Sudsy Glory you’d expect from a GREAT BAR BAND!” __The Irish Voice THESNAKESBAND.COM

TAYLOR TOTE BAND     EAST STAGE – 6:00 – 7:00 PM

Taylor_Tote_Band_-_Social_Media_Low_Res_DSC_7778C-2Taylor Tote has made quite a splash on the New Jersey music scene. The 21-year old Jersey Shore native was named by NJ.com as one of the “25 must-hear local bands” for her “big voice, old soul’ style and the Asbury Park Press listed her in "The 9 Jersey Shore Bands You Need To Hear". “She is dominating, empowering, strong, soft, sexy, and insanely fun,” writes the Aquarian Weekly. “Her attitude and stage presence is smooth, sweet, and controlled. However, it can be flipped like a switch to a rock and roll, hell-stomping diva. Tote was recently featured in Front and Center by the Women's International Music Network (WiMN). "As the leader of the Taylor Tote Band, Tote is now poised to propel her career even further, with original songs that evoke a range of emotions, and exciting live shows—all of which bare her soul and showcase her strong vocal capabilities.", explains WiMN.  As an accomplished singer-songwriter, Tote has already been nominated for a dozen local music awards; she's won talent competitions; had her music video featured in a Music and Film Festival and has performed in iconic venues such as The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, The Bitter End in NYC and The George Jones Museum in Nashville.   Tote's most recent nominations include a 2015 Asbury Music Award (AMA) for "Top Female Vocalist" and "Top Young Band". In June 2016, Tote was selected to perform at the premier 2016 Summer NAMM Show on the main stage at the Music City Center, in Nashville. In July 2015, she was one of five women selected across the country to perform at the 2015 She Rocks Summer NAMM Showcase, presented by WiMN in Nashville, Tennessee.  American Songwriter called Tote’s full-band performance as one of the highlights of the New Jersey Light of Day festival for her “wide, emotional vocal range and pop sensibilities.” The Asbury Park Press cites a “lilting twang in her voice that shades from corn-fed country to big pop and vampy jump blues.”  At a show in 2015, Tote released her self-titled debut EP, to a sold-out show at Red Bank, NJ’s Two River Theatre.  "These songs are my heart, they are my feelings," she says. "They are me." She also unveiled a video for her new track "Superman" which was featured at The 2015 Asbury Park Music In Film Festival.          TAYLORTOTE.COM
