A Giving Spirit at Exit 109
There's nothing like coming 'home' for the holidays, and that's what a number of the Garden State's most notable musicians did in recently performing a special concert to support the incredible work being done at The Cancer Institute of New Jersey (CINJ). Under the musical direction of Jersey Shore notable Bobby Bandiera and headlined by Jon Bon Jovi, the Hope Concert V featured a cast of the state's finest musicians, who - along with the host venue, the Count Basie Theatre - donated their services to the cause. Bandiera & the Jersey Shore Rock-N-Soul Revue, Bon Jovi, Southside Johnny, Gary U.S. Bonds, Nicole Atkins, Brian Fallon, and Tim McLone and the Shirleys served up classic hits to an audience of 1,500 and helped raise more than $175,000 for CINJ.
