Maria Mar host of the Jersey Rock show on 95.9 the WRAT arranged a benefit show for a great cause.The foundation is the Bristol-Myers Squibb Children’s Hospital at Robert Wood Johnson. The event is today Jan.4th at The Saint in Asbury. She arranged a great lineup of bands that include Thsose Modern Cavemen, Only Living Boy, GODS, Wreaths and Empire Escorts. There will be plenty of cool stuff to raffle off some of which has been donated by some great area bands like The Gaslight Anthem, The Bouncing Souls, Saves the Day, The Story So Far and many more. Maria has been an incredible force in the local music scene for some time now with her Jersey Rock show on the WRAT radio station to her lovely personality when she shows up at the local shows to show support. Maria also has a local music column in the Aquarian Weekly and is the new marketing and pr rep for AEG at Starland Ballroom.
Maria has been a big influence in my quest over the last couple of years by always supporting not just what I do but who I am. I am glad to be able to consider Maria as a friend who always tries to do whats right. I will be there to show my support for the cause as well as Maria and all the bands that are taking time to give back. If you are around and have no plans please come out and support the cause. It’s at The Saint at 8:00 pm and you are promised a good time.
