posted Nov 21, 2018, 3:25 PM by Brandon Thompson

Below is the press release from Light of Day. The 10 day festival features some of great local musicians and some amazing up and coming talent. Bruce Springsteen has been known to drop into the festival in Asbury Park, his last appearance was in 2015. 

LIGHT OF DAY WINTERFEST, the annual marquee event in the world-renowned Light of Day Foundation’s global battle to defeat Parkinson’s Disease and the Parkinsonisms – ALS and PSP – through the awesome power of music, today announced that the 19th edition of the 10-day fundraising festival will be held in six cities across three states, Jan. 11-21, 2018.
 
Over 150 acts will be performing at more than 50 shows in New Jersey, New York, and Philadelphia. Light of Day WinterFest is primarily based in Asbury Park, where the action will occur Jan. 13 and Jan. 17-21. The festival will kick off Jan. 11 in Montclair, NJ, followed by Jan. 12 in Philadelphia and for the first time, Jan. 13 in Stony Point, NY and Jan. 15 in Staten Island, NY. WinterFest returns to New York City Jan. 16. A ticket on-sale announcement is forthcoming.
 
In 2018, Light of Day WinterFest raised over a half million dollars for the fourth straight year, catapulting its 18-year cumulative total past the 5 million mark. Light of Day WinterFest 2019 is expected to push the 19-year total past $5.5 million. The festival has gained international notoriety for surprise performances by Bruce Springsteen in 11 of its 18 years, including his most recent appearance, in 2015.
 
Light of Day WinterFest began as a one-day affair in Asbury Park and is now the culmination of an annual worldwide series of shows. Light of Day Europe, the final event in the series leading up to Light of Day WinterFest each year, is once again preparing to take the Foundation’s global initiative overseas in the fight against Parkinson’s Disease with a holiday run Nov. 29 in Dublin and ending in Dorphof, Germany (already sold out). Guy Davis, Anthony D'Amato, Joe D'Urso, Jeffrey Gaines, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame former E Street Band drummer Vini "Mad Dog" Lopez, and Rob Dye will be joined by other guest musicians during the three-week trek. Together, they’ll perform 17 dates in 11 countries, including multiple cities in England, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, and Sweden, as well as Ireland, Scotland, Liechtenstein, Belgium, and Denmark. 
 
The Light of Day Foundation regrants money to organizations which fund specific research initiatives, including, the Michael J. Fox Foundation, CurePSP, the Parkinson’s Foundation (formerly the Parkinson’s Disease Foundation), and the Parkinson’s Unity Walk. The Light of Day Foundation also supports “boots on the ground” programs designed to help people with these diseases live better lives on a daily basis, including Joan Dancy & PALS, with a mission to help New Jersey residents in nearby Monmouth and Ocean Counties afflicted with ALS by providing a better quality of life for them and their families.
 
This fall, the Light of Day Foundation made a $100,000 donation to the Parkinson’s Foundation to launch the Come Out In The Light Of Day educational initiative, a pilot program to be tested in New Jersey for patients who are newly diagnosed with Parkinson’s, and the first newly diagnosed educational resource program in America, according to Tony Pallagrosi, executive director of the Light of Day Foundation.

Bruce Springsteen To Headline Stand Up For Heroes Benefit

posted Sep 14, 2018, 3:57 PM by Brandon Thompson

Bruce Springsteen will once again be a headliner for the 12th Stand Up For Heroes benefit. This year's benefit will take place on Monday, November 5 at the Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden. The Boss typically shows up to play three to four songs with some jokes in-between each song performance. The performance is usually followed by an auction where you can bid on Springsteen's guitar he played that night to having a lasagna dinner made by his mother. Be warned, these auctions go for big bucks so break out those piggy banks. 

Either way, if you're interested in attending, tickets are on sale now at Ticketmaster that range from $256-$5,006. Ticket proceeds go to the Bob Wodruff Foundation which supports veterans, service members, their families and caregivers. The lineup includes: Bruce Springsteen, Jimmy Carr, Eric Church, Jim Gaffigan, Seth Meyers, and Jon Stewart amongst others.
