New Providence Business presented four summer concerts this year offering music and entertainment for the whole family. The free concerts included face painting and a magician to entertain the kids, along with free hot dogs from The Prestige Diner and free ice cream from Zita’s Homemade Ice Cream for all to enjoy. This year, the bands were Asbury Fever, the always popular Bruce Springsteen tribute band; The Day Trippers, a local Beatles Tribute band; The 1910 Fruitgum Company, a well-known 1960s pop band; and The Elefante Family Band, a beloved hometown favorite. The last concert coincided with the National Night Out program, and included additional activities presented by the New Providence Police, Fire, EMS, and Recreation Departments.
The concerts were a huge success, and even the weather cooperated, with only one performance, The 1910 Fruitgum Comapny, moving indoors. We’d like to thank everyone who attended the concerts.
The concert series would not have been possible without the generous support of our local Business Community and sponsors:
