REFRESHMENTS

HAVE FUN, BE SAFE, AND BE CONSIDERATE OF OTHERS:

Our concert series has always been a family-oriented program. Please be considerate of your neighbors, so that everyone may enjoy the music and the natural surroundings. If you smoke, make sure your second-hand smoke doesn't bother anyone else. We ask that you keep children in sight at all times, so their safety is assured, and so their play will not disturb others. Remember that some of our guests may be afraid of dogs, so please observe our park leash and litter pick-up laws, and keep pets under your control at all times. Spectators are encouraged to bring flashlights for added safety. Bring a blanket or lawn chair and a few friends and join us for our weekly open-air summer concert series at Deer Path Park in Readington Township, NJ.

ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES ARE NOT PERMITTED

POSSIBLE CLOSURES DUE TO AVAILABLE SPACE IN DEER PATH PARK

Our stage is situated in front of a large, open field to accommodate lawn chairs and blankets for our audience. Additional fields will be made available for use as parking lots for each performance. There are evenings when we may need to close Deer Path Park, simply because we might fill lawn seating and/or parking spaces.

There are four very good reasons:

  • You’ll get to visit with your friends;
  • Fewer cars help reduce your time needed for parking before and after the concert, due to traffic;
  • More people can enjoy the concert and
  • If we all pitch in we can save some fossil fuel and lessen the amount of pollutants entering our air!

Schedule:

June 28 - Hunterdon Symphony

July 5 - Citigrass

The band is a steady feature on the nightclub and festival circuit as well as a nationally-aired recording act. The members are top players on their instruments and have played thousands of private events of all kinds. Citigrass, based in New York City, specializes in a kind of “urban bluegrass,” which blends rock, jazz and even classical influences with traditional bluegrass to create a hot, modern sound that attracts a much wider audience than most bluegrass acts. This critically-acclaimed band is a favorite at many top venues and festivals and as well as a regular act at New York City’s legendary Knitting Factory. The band appeared recently on ABC TV live from Lincoln Center and is the featured soloist at this summers Mobile Symphony Orchestra pops concert (to perform with the orchestra). Citigrass and their new album, “Serpent in the Grass,” stretch the boundaries of bluegrass music; the CD is urbane, funny, musically complex, and full of excitement. Citigrass has been praised by such diverse publications as “Bluegrass Unlimited,” “Relix,” “The Village Voice,” “NY Press,” and “The band and its music have received national radio exposure through the highly successful run of both "Serpent in the Grass” and the debut album, “Citigrass”.
