Long Branch Releases Summer Concert Schedule

West End Cruise Night, Jazz and Blues Festival and other summer concerts announced

The summer is right around the corner and there are plenty of events in store for Long Branch.

The summer brings several entertaining events for Long Branch residents including car shows and concerts in different areas of the city.

The Office of Community and Economic Development announced its summer schedule and it should give residents the opportunity to enjoy a new event every weekend this summer.

Summer Program Manager Barry Stein said one of the changes this year is that there will only be one West End Car Show.

Stein said there is also an effort being made to improve the Downtown Tuesday Night concerts on Broadway. He said interest has been lacking in recent years and that attendance was decreasing.

Once again, not one Salsa band! Hey Barry, are you dissing the Hispanic Community of Long Branch? From the line of bands, it looks like we're in Tennessee, not New Jersey!!!
