Old Bridge, NJ – Aug. 26, 2016 – The Hub Kings jazz band will appear at the Old Bridge Public Library on Sat. Sep. 10th at 2:30pm as part of the Library’s popular Second Saturday Concert Series.
Influenced by many of the great soul jazz performers from the 60s & 70s, the Hub Kings will perform music from such legends as George Benson and Grover Washington, Jr. Based in Metuchen, the three-piece band centers on the smoky tones of the Hammond organ, whose sound once dominated urban centers like New Brunswick and Newark. The band consists of musicians Jonathan Tristram (keyboards/Hammond Organ); Dave Smela (drums) and Kevin Hildebrandt (guitar).
All Second Saturday concerts are free, but attendees are requested to bring a non-perishable item for donation to the Old Bridge Food Pantry. Upcoming performances include the return of Gordon James on Oct. 8th with his “Masters of Swing” jazz trio.
