From the South Orange Elks
The South Orange Elks (The 1154) will present semi-legendary local band Big Train the night before Thanksgiving. The event is open to the public (21 and over), but proof of COVID vaccination is required.
Lodge Secretary Yoda Bob Donnelly said, “This is always a special night at the Lodge and a tradition of sorts. We’re excited to welcome Big Train back”.
Chris Dickson of Big Train echoed Donnelly’s sentiment, saying “We really missed this show last year. It’s a great night, seeing old friends and meeting new ones. The Elks has a very welcoming vibe, with cold beer at a reasonable price!”.
Doors will open at 7 PM and Big Train will start playing around 7:30, presenting, “two super-size me sets of horn-infused R&B and soul”. Donnelly said that there is no cover charge, adding that “the Elks just want to invite the community in to help kick-off the holidays”.
The Elks are asking attendees to bring one or two non-perishable food items that will be donated to local hunger-fighting initiatives. For a list of suggested items click here.
The South Orange Elks is located at 220 Prospect Street in South Orange. For more information about the Lodge click here.
