Max Weinberg’s Jukebox

Wednesday, October 18th at White Eagle Hall

TICKETS

83-ogFresh off the hugely successful The River Tour 2016-2017 of Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band—where the group played 89 concerts nearly four hours long each night in 15 countries amassing $300,000,000 in ticket sales, Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Drummer Max Weinberg announces a new touring concept for the small venue—“Max Weinberg’s Jukebox”.

A truly interactive experience, Weinberg invites the audience to create in real time the set list he and his crack four piece group will play that night. Performing songs from the glory days of rock and roll your guests get to choose from a video menu of over 200 songs– everything from the Beatles to the Stones to Bruce and The E Street Band’s biggest hits—and hear the group play ‘em the way they want to hear them played!

That’s right—the crowd gets to yell out their choices and Max plays them! This unique approach is fun and satisfying.
How many times have you attended a show where you yearned to hear your favorite performer play your favorite song? With Max Weinberg’s Jukebox your dream will be realized. Continue reading

Standing in a soaring two-story entry lobby, Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop joined other municipal officials and representatives of Fisher Development Associates today to open Vantage, a new luxury 448-unit waterfront rental building in the city’s downtown Liberty Harbor North neighborhood.

Rising 45-stories into the Jersey City skyline, the signature glass-curtain wall building features a modern and sleek design, world-class amenities and one-of-a-kind views of the Statue of Liberty, Liberty Harbor Marina and Manhattan skyline.  Mayor Fulop led a ceremonial ribbon cutting to officially welcome Vantage which has debuted with strong leasing velocity and nearly 100 residents having already moved in.  The Marketing Directors is the building’s exclusive marketing and leasing agent.

“The building looks beautiful and certainly adds to the skyline which makes Jersey City so special in regards to this entire region,” Mayor Fulop said.  “Congratulations to Fisher Development Associates on the opening of Vantage and we look forward to more projects like this.”

Situated at 33 Park View Avenue, Vantage lies adjacent to the charming Paulus Hook and Van Vorst Park neighborhoods.  Just steps away is the vibrant dining/nightlife scene on Newark Avenue, while Manhattan is just minutes away via the Grove Street and Exchange Place PATH stations and New York Waterway ferry service.

On October 14 and 15, 2017, more than 150 artist studios, galleries, museums and other art-activated venues across Jersey City will be inviting the public in to enjoy and purchase art in all forms of media. As the second largest city in New Jersey, Jersey City is a hot pot of imaginative creators. During the JCAST weekend, thousands of residents and visitors from the tri-state area will engage with more than 500 of these talented individuals on their own turf.

The weekend includes live performances, curated bus, bike and walking tours of indoor and outdoor art in every neighborhood (Jersey City boasts more than 100 public murals alone), live music, panel discussions, dance performances, and so much more! Complimentary shuttle buses will be driving tour-goers throughout the city from noon to 6 PM both days, to ensure that they can view exhibits with ease and comfort. All JCAST events are free and open to the public.

The JCAST weekend will kick off with an evening reception, Friday, October 13, 6 to 9 PM, at the illustrious Mack-Cali Harborside Atrium, 210 Hudson Street, located near the Hudson River waterfront and Exchange Place PATH station.

The event is open to the public and will feature live music, demonstrations, live painting, coloring book art, etc.; allowing JCAST artists an opportunity to let loose after months of hard preparatory work while interacting with their art fans. Attendees will have a sneak-peak at the Pro Arts exhibit, which will be showcasing in a gallery adjacent to the Atrium.

The weekend will culminate with an artists’ reception on Sunday, October 15, 5 to 8 PM, at the stunning Hudson County Community College Department of Cultural Affairs’ Benjamin J. Dineen III and Dennis C. Hull Gallery, located in Journal Square.

The gallery will be featuring a show called “Each State of the Mind is Irreducible: Spanish & Latin Artists,” including artists based in Mana Contemporary New Jersey (on Newark Avenue in Jersey City) and Chicago. Mana Contemporary is dedicated to providing a platform for contemporary art and artists through exhibitions, studio programs and public programs.

The Jersey City Art & Studio Tour is presented by Mayor Steven M. Fulop, the Jersey City Municipal Council and the Jersey City Office of Cultural Affairs.

GULL’S COVE II SURPASSES 75% AND $60 MILLION IN PRE-CONSTRUCTION SALES

gullscove2_livingroom

Gull’s Cove II, the luxury condominium building rising in the Liberty Harbor North neighborhood of Downtown Jersey City, has surpassed $60 million in pre-construction sales, with more than 75% of the building’s 107 units under contract.

With construction of the new nine-story building nearing completion, initial occupancy is scheduled for this fall.

Gull’s Cove II follows the successful sell-out of the residential property’s first phase of 322 condominiums.  The two phases are connected by a ground-level row of public retail and private amenities.

“In a City still dominated by rental product, Gull’s Cove has consistently appealed to those residents from both sides of the river looking to purchase a new-construction, luxury condominium in an amenity-rich building,” said Art Johnson, Vice President of Liberty Harbor North LLC, Gull’s Cove’s developer.  “The success of the first phase, the fact that we can start moving buyers in this fall, and a dearth of new-construction, for-sale product in Downtown Jersey City have all helped drive sales velocity at Gull’s Cove II.” Continue reading

Con Vivo Music’s String Quartet Returns October 6

cvm-string-quartet-web

Con Vivo Music returns to the beautiful Cathedral Hall with an evocative program of string quartet compositions by living composers. The concert program includes works by Sarah Kirkland Snider, “one of the decade’s more gifted, up-and-coming modern classical composers” (Pitchfork), and “charismatic contemporary bard” (NY Times) Elliot Cole. Paired with these are the world premiere of works by CVM’s own Erin Rogers and Kevin Cummines. This concert will close Con Vivo Music’s 10th season of free and innovative concerts in the Jersey City community.

Sarah Kirkland Snider is describes her piece “Ave” as a meditation and response to a polaroid from her own past, and a memory to a lost friend.  By contrast, Erin Rogers’ new work for CVM, “Conduire, Camion”, processes traffic noise and inner thoughts. Much the contemplative soundtrack of driving, Rogers dedicates this work to her nephew “whose passion for trucks is boundless” (Rogers). In the same vein, Kevin Cummines new work “Machinatery” is a tonal observation of the frantic nature of our modern reality. And closing the program, Elliot Cole writes about his string quartet “From a cloud of bird cries a song is pulled – at first slowly, with great effort, one note drawn out at a time. From more struggle comes more clarity, and then the music is made incarnate and set free. … After it lives out its destiny, it is pulled from us, disappearing back into the air.”
