Jersey City never falls short of live music performances. We still have two more months of the Jazz for Lunch free concert series which runs through September. It takes place from 12-2pm every Thursday at J. Owen Grundy Pier on the Hudson River which has a beautiful pavilion, picnic tables and of course spectacular views of New York City. Below are the four performers for the month of August.
Richard Reiter Jazz Quartet – Richard Reiter is a musician, band leader and EMMY Award winning composer. Sit back and relax as you enjoy some smooth jazz.
The Funky Organics – These guys are awesome! They’re a Soul Jazz, Blues and Funk band playing soulful music which was inspired by the 60’s. The band consists of a 2 horn front line, backed by organ, guitar and drums. They are all regulars on the New York club and recording scene.
Bryan Beninghove – Bryan is a part of the Jersey City band Manouche Bag which has been performing for six years every Thursday at Madame Claude Café (now Bistro) in Jersey City. They also play many weddings and private parties all over the county. Bryan is also the President and director of RiverviewJazz.org. This guy knows his stuff!
Wilma Ann and the Jazz Disciples – Jazz music lovers unite! You’ll love Wilma Ann’s voice and the sounds of the piano, saxophone and drums. You may have seen them at local Jersey City venues such as Port-O Lounge.
