Thirty years is a long time to be doing one thing. But journalist Bob Makin – who started his Makin Waves column back in 1988 – loves what he does! In addition to covering New Jersey’s rich local music and arts scene, he has hosted events over the years at some of the state’s best and brightest venues, helping boost the exposure of a number of our finest musicians.
This summer will be no exception as Makin hosts the Makin Waves Summer Concert Series at the Asbury Park Brewery. Each night will be low-cost, family friendly, and will feature “five headliner acts for five bucks.” The details are as follows:
- June 23rd: The Best of Makin Waves
- July 14th: Trenton Makes Takeover
- July 28th: Crazy, Hot, Vicious, and…Brown
- August 11th: Second Annual Makin Waves Roots Fest
Each event starts at 6pm. For more details and to scope out the many great sponsors that have come together to help make these events possible, check out the massive event page on Facebook. In addition, there’s an excellent YouTube Playlist that features each of the acts! Go familiarize yourself and mark your calendars. It’s going to be a busy summer!
