Old Bridge, NJ –  Oct. 24, 2019 – In November, the Old Bridge Public Library will not only offer its popular Second Saturday Concert Series, but a performance on the first Saturday as well. Both of the following concerts are free and open to the public.

Diego Allessandro: Saturday, Nov. 2nd @2pm. Old Bridge resident Allessandro returns to the Library after a well-received concert in July.  The singer/songwriter will entertain with his signature Americana sound, which blends 80s and 90s pop and 2000s punk.  He is described as a “modern day mash-up of Johnny Cash and Jim Morrison.” Allessandro has been playing guitar since he was seven years old and has recorded three albums; copies of his CDs will be available for purchase. 

Navesink Brass Quintet: Saturday, Nov. 9th @2:30pm. This professional brass quintet performs all styles of music from the Renaissance to Jazz to Rock. Formed in 1992 in Red Bank, NJ, the ensemble took the name of the Monmouth County river. They will present a spirited performance featuring a selection of patriotic songs, popular pieces from West Side Story and a Dixieland medley, in honor of the 300th anniversary of the founding of New Orleans. A special selection of music in commemoration of Veterans Day will also be offered.  The band features Thomas Bender (trumpet), Donald Swinchoski (trumpet), Nancy Shalvatis (horn), Daniel Carver (trombone) and Paul J. Eschelbach (tuba).

Attendees are asked to bring a non-perishable, unexpired donation for the Old Bridge Food Bank to these free events.
