WEHJC_2018Preview_poressrelease-picture 1

The restored, historic White Eagle Hall in Jersey City begins its first full year of programming in 2018 with a lineup of concerts, dance and theatre.

After officially opening on May 5th of last year with a ribbon cutting ceremony led by the mayor of Jersey City, the restored White Eagle Hall attracted audiences with a dynamic schedule of music, theater and dance. As this historic theater begins its first full-year of programming in 2018, White Eagle Hall is poised to become a leading performing arts center in the New Jersey/New York area.

Several New Jersey-based bands – such as Frank Iero and The Patience, Trophy Scars and The Early November – headlined 2017 White Eagle Hall shows, many of them making their Jersey City debut. The venue remains committed to providing crucial exposure for local musicians. Not only did  Jersey City-based Rye Coalition and Sunshine & the Rain headline the May 5th opening, but local bands – such as Enochian from Bayonne, Red Hymns from Union City, and The Scandals from Jersey City –  are frequently booked to play supporting slots for national touring acts at White Eagle Hall.
