This year our musical lineup features members of many rock bands that helped create what was known in the early 1980s as the “Hoboken Sound,” including The Bongos who have recently reissued their critically acclaimed debut Drums Along the Hudson with new tracks produced by Moby. Other featured bands include Glenn Mercer of The Feelies, Chris Stamey of the dB’s, The Health & Happiness Show with James Mastro, Bill McGarvey and many others.

The event is presented in coordination with the Hoboken Historical Museum’s retrospective of the city’s storied musical past. (Hoboken Tunes: Our Musical Heritage, July 29 – December 23) www.hobokenmuseum.org
