A Very Asbury Holiday Show Raises Funds for Area Charities

The Asbury Park Music Foundation presents the 2nd Annual A Very Asbury Holiday Show on Dec. 8 at the Paramount Theatre to benefit The Boys and Girls Club of Monmouth County, The Mercy Center, Asbury Park Music Foundation’s Youth Initiative, and Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Monmouth County.

Last year’s sellout show raised thousands of dollars for each of the selected charities and hundreds of gifts were collected for the Asbury Park Toy Drive.

Additions to the previously announced line-up are Ian Gray and Ocean Avenue Stompers, The Weeklings premiering their brand new Christmas song, “Gonna be Christmas” and co-host Michele Amabile Angermiller who will be joining Everett Bradley’s Holidelic, Pat Roddy, deSoL, Gene Cornish (Rascals), Carmine Appice, Lance Larson, Jaquita Mays, Jim Babjak (Smithereens), Lisa Lowell, Williams Honor, Bobby Mahoney, Pat Guadagno, Emily Grove, Deseree Spinks, Layonne Holmes, JT Bowen, Eddie Testa and Joe Bellia.

“The Holiday Show has been an amazing gift. The musicians, promoters, volunteers and students from our community come together to celebrate the holidays and make change.  The support and funds raised each year creates music education programs and opportunities for the children here in Asbury Park. It’s a beautiful thing.  I’m proud to be a small part of this tremendous and festive event,” said Jon Leidersdorff, Lakehouse Music Academy and APMF board member.

Tickets for A Very Asbury Holiday Show start at $29 and are available through Ticketmaster: https://www1.ticketmaster.com/event/000057588DAF33E9 or at the Stone Pony box office. The concert begins at 7 p.m. and includes an after-party at the Wonder Bar.
