Monday night 12/19 I had the pleasure of hosting and playing Santa at The Hope Concert V at the beautiful Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank. The concert was held as a benefit for The Cancer Institute of New Jersey who help so many here in New Jersey fight the never ending battle of cancer. The concert was outstanding with musical director and Jersey music icon Bobby Bandiera assembling a “Who’s Who” of New Jersey Rock n Roll. Playing to the sold out crowd was Jon Bon Jovi, Southside Johnny, Gary U.S. Bonds, Hugh McDonald  from Bon Jovi, Brian Fallon from Gaslight Anthem, Nicole Atkins, Tim McLoone & The Shirley’s and a house band second to none. The concert raised $200,000 for the Cancer Institute of New Jersey. It was such a pleasure to be a small part of this tremendous evening, I had a blast seeing old friends play music like it was meant to be. We are so fortunate to have that musical talent right here in New Jersey.
