Harpin' Help for the Jersey Shore
April 9, 2012
-- On Sunday, April 22, 2012 from 12:30 – 9:00 p.m. Bar Anticipation, located on 703 16th Avenue, Lake Como, NJ, will host Harpin’ Help 2012. The annual all-day music event is organized by local musician Sandy Mack in conjunction with the Jersey Shore Jazz and Blues Foundation (JSJBF). The event will generate funding for JSJBF’S operational expenses and collect non-perishable food items and paper products for the Keyport Ministerium Food Pantry. Each year, many of the best local, regional and national musicians and singer-songwriters donate their incredible talent to this worthy cause. The event features continuous live music on two stages (acoustic and electric) from 12:30 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.
Sandy Mack of Wall Township and a volunteer for the Jersey Shore Jazz and Blues Foundation has been putting Harpin' Help together throughout its 11-year history. "Harpin’ Help offers something for everyone with a variety of musical styles and artists,” says organizer and harmonica player Sandy Mack. "2012 is going to be bigger and better than ever with some of the most exciting musicians on the scene today. It’s exciting to gather together to share our hearts and talents to benefit the Jersey Shore jazz and blues community and people in need.”
All ages are welcome to attend this full afternoon of live music, food and fun. There will be 50/50 raffles, food available for purchase at Bar Anticipation and a cash bar. Admission is $20 at the door, or $15 when a guest brings a minimum of two cans of non-perishable food items or paper goods.
