Newark Notables – June 23, 2009

  • Some House Music Under the Stars
  • June 23, 2009 The Times writes about the weekly, free outdoor concert series at NJPAC. The event draws thousands every week with performances that span a variety of musical genres. Worth checking out!

    Two of this summer’s 10 Thursday-night installments will include house music. Opening night, June 25, will deliver the D.J. Duce Martinez of Montclair, host of the Internet show “Axiom Sessions.” Later in the evening, when the corporate crowd trickles out and a less buttoned-up one trickles in, Kenny Bobien, also of Montclair, will take the outdoor stage to sing his underground dance hits. “I’m not saying corporate people can’t dance, but usually the dancing types come out later,” Ms. Wray-Spirito said.

    The series’ second-to-last installment, on Aug. 20, will be heavy on house, featuring the D.J.s and singers of Brooklyn’s Melting Pot Global collective, whose music is also flecked with funk and jazz.

    Shows start at 5 p.m. and run until 10 p.m.

  1. I can’t wait for this event🙂
    I can’t believe they are playing House music…Newark venues are definitely expanding what they offer. I just went to Art Kitchen and some guy named Ian had this melodic, piano filled bliss music (Smile.)…it was amazing. And we still have our Jazz in the Garden at Newark Museum and our Washington Park Concerts…and hopefully Lincoln Park will have their concert soon…
