This Hopewell, N.J. native has opened for the likes of Buddy Guy, Derek Trucks and Bon Jovi.

8:45 – Third World
One of the longest-lived Reggae bands of all time, and one of Jamaica’s most consistently popular crossover acts among international audiences. Mixing in elements of R&B, funk, pop, and rock and, later on, dancehall and rap, Third World’s style has been described as “reggae-fusion”.

NOTE: Schedule subject to change. If weather interrupts the schedule we pick up the schedule as per the “clock.” In other words, if it pours rain from 4 pm to 5:45, we pick up the schedule with whatever band is scheduled to be playing at 5:45. However, we have a covered stage, so light or moderate rain won’t stop us.

Last minute updates to the schedule (due to weather or other factors) will be announced in real-time on our Twitter channel —
