South Orange’s Downtown After Sundown Concerts Are Friday Night Only This Weekend

From the South Orange Village Center Alliance via the Village Vibe:

Nuevo flamenco artist Jonathan Fritz

We’ve got a great lineup on Friday night for Downtown After Sundown, which just happens to be the best summer downtown concert series ever! We only have concerts on Friday this weekend because we’re taking Saturday night off for Maplewoodstock!

On Sloan Street we’ve got Nuevo flamenco guitarist Jonathan Fritz who is both a passionate stage performer and sought after session guitar player from New York City. Jonathan travels the world playing for a wide range of audiences, including touring with superstars such as Lionel Richie and Richie Havens. He’s also played with some people that you may have heard of like John Mayer, Billy Joel, Van Morrison and Jimmy Buffet just to name a few. And Friday night he’ll be here in South Orange performing for us!

At Spiotta Park on Friday night we’ve got the Ally Mac Project with lead singer and keyboardist Allison McKensie.

Both shows start at 7 PM and run through 10 PM, so bring out those chairs, grab some food and spend some time in the Village Center for Downtown After Sundown.

Downtown After Sundown Full Schedule
