The Atmosferics Finish Out Metuchen Rocks! August 25th

| No Comments

The Metuchen Rocks! Outdoor Summer Concert Series will present its fourth and final concert for the season featuring THE ATMOSFERICS on Thursday, August 25th, at 7:30 p.m. on the Metuchen Summer Stage located in downtown Metuchen on the corner of New and Center Streets. 

The Atmosferics' musical roots stretch far and wide, drawing from a deep pool of influences from classic rockers like Bob Dylan, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones to the improvisational nether-regions of The Grateful Dead, Phish and Miles Davis' electric period. Their set lists are often eclectic, comprised of all original tunes that draw from a number of funk styles that embrace the raw funk and spatial groove of the New Orleans funk scene, as well as Latin funk blues that combines folkloric lyrics with head-bopping solos.

The Atmosferics have opened for the Stanton Moore Trio and Bobby Previte's "Coalition of the Willing" featuring Charlie Hunter at The Knitting Factory, as well as Keller Williams at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park. They have also performed in New York City at The Crossroads, The Lions Den and The Bitter End.

Band members include: Kevin Hildebrandt on guitar/vocals; Robby Seibert  on sax/keys; Alex Blitz on bass, and Lee Irwin on drums.

The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. and is free.   In case of rain the concert move inside the Senior Center at the same location on corner of New and Center Streets in Metuchen. 

This free concert series is sponsored by the Metuchen Arts Council in association with Metuchen Recreation and has been made possible in part by a grant from The Metuchen Savings Bank; the Middlesex County Board of Chosen Freeholders and the Middlesex County Cultural and Heritage Commission with assistance through a grant provided by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Dept. of State.
