Wow, this summer is flying by! Can you believe it's already July? July 10th marked week 4 of the 2016 Big Joe Jersey Talent Show - which means we're almost halfway through the summer-long competition!

I’d like to say that every contestant gave their performances their all and I hope to see everyone continue to follow their passion for music. Congratulations to our semi-finalist contestants: duo Francis O'Brien and Alec Demello, Kristen Harvey and Ava Rose Dressendofer!

Lastly, I’d thank you to our sponsors, who we wouldn’t be able to do the talent show without. Portrait Recording Studios, who is giving out a priceless grand prize of a recording package, which includes full audio recording and mixing for a single song, a recorded and edited video for that song, and much more! World Wide Piano of Edison, who is giving away an acoustic Hallet Davis & Co. 45″ studio piano. And BuyDig.com, who get to spend every Sunday night with the Jersey Prize Team, giving out beach goodies and coupons for their website, which sells almost every electronic imaginable and offers free shipping!

If you haven’t had a chance to come see the Big Joe Jersey Talent Show, put it on your list of things to do this summer! Join Big Joe Henry, the Jersey Prize Team and talented musicians every Sunday night at Jenkinson's. The show starts at 7pm and lasts roughly an hour. Come out to support local music and New Jersey’s own undiscovered talent. We hope to see you there!
