AUGUST 22 – Concert at Vets Park in Highlands


sounds of recoverySt. Bernard Project, a nationally recognized disaster recovery nonprofit organization, is hosting a benefit concert on SATURDAY, AUGUST 22, 2015 from 2:00 p.m.-8:30 p.m. in Veterans Park, located on Bay Avenue in Highlands. The Sounds of Recovery concert is an effort to raise awareness and funds for long-term recovery needs in the Borough of Highlands. There will be live music, local food vendors (including: Dive, Et Al, Chilangos, Bahrs, Bay Ave Bakery and Water Witch), a beer garden with $5 drinks, gift auction prizes, a 50/50, face painting and more!

Cover charge is a $15 recommended donation. There will be a 50/50 drawing every 2 hours, and all gift auction items will be drawn at the end of the event – attendance not required to win auctioned gifts.

SBP is collaborating with local business Water Witch Coffee and the Highlands Business Partnership on the event in an effort to raise $50,000 to be used in its residential rebuilding program which will serve residents still waiting to return home after Hurricane Sandy in Highlands, NJ.

The lineup is composed of upcoming local artists:

12:00 p.m. Subject to Change, improvisational/blues funk band from Long Branch, NJ

1:00 p.m. The Lakehouse Music Academy, youth music students from Asbury Park, NJ

2:15 p.m. Dark City Strings, blue grass/Americana band from Asbury Park, NJ

3:30 p.m. The Shady Street Show Band, rhythm and blues band from Red Bank, NJ

4:45 p.m. The Cranston Dean Band, rock/blues/folk/funk band from Atlantic Highlands, NJ

6:00 p.m. Karmic Juggernaut, psychedelic progressive funk band from Asbury Park, NJ

7:15 p.m. The Underwater Sounds, reggae fusion band from Philadelphia, PA

*All concert proceeds will go directly towards St. Bernard Project’s recovery efforts in the Borough of Highlands. Donations are a vital resource to enable SBP’s clients – who would not otherwise be able to afford the cost of rebuilding – to move back home. Specifically, proceeds from Sounds of Recovery will be utilized on projects where there is an unmet funding need to complete construction and the homeowner meets SBP’s client eligibility standards.
