- 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.
