Bloomfield's outdoor concert goers will have to choose between two great concerts on opposite ends of town. Residents are invited to Essex County Watsessing Park on Tuesday, July 31 for the rain delayed concert featuring Newark-native Carrie Jackson. Jazz vocal stylist Jackson honed her talent in her hometown. She began singing in the Children’s Choir at Mount Calvary Baptist Church in Newark,.Whether performing solo or with her Jazzin’ All Star Band, Jackson’s classical performances feature jazz favorites, soulful pop, blues and poignant mellow gospel.
The Infernos, America’s #1 Show Band and the area’s premier live performance group, has been on the music scene since 1977. In recent years their fame has grown and they have had opportunities that even the most famous main-stream bands would only dream of. The band has performed for President Obama and past Presidents as well.
Bloomfield's own Bobby Wells brings his band back home with the release of a new dance single entitled “Boom” which features Jazz Artist Robin Filippone with an assist from Kenny Simmons, former member of the 3-time Grammy Award-winning R&B group The Commodores/ The two artists previously worked together on Filippone’s soon to be released Jazz CD, “Love For Sale.” Filippone is a former New Jersey Miss America contestant.
She will be touring this summer with The Infernos on their 2012 “The Ultimate Tour”.
