Let’s it be said that when tragedy strikes, the first people who often come to the rescue are medical personnel, law enforcement, and musicians. And my lord, look at this lineup!!!

Taking place on January 2, 2013 at The Paramount in Asbury Park, NJ, some of the finest artists (and people) have organized an absolutely stunning lineup of music to aid in relief efforts caused by Hurricane Sandy. My Morning Jacket, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Nicole Atkins, Joseph Arthur, River City Extension, Tangiers Blues Band, and most likely a spectacular choice of special guests will be  giving back to NJ.
