FREEHOLD – The Freehold Elks Lodge #1454 Veteran’s Committee is hosting a BBQ & Blues Jam for the Brave this Saturday, July 15 from 5 to 9 p.m., featuring Blues Hall of Famer and Elk Brother Gary Cavico.
All musically inclined Elks and non-Elks members are invited to join in on the Blues jam. This is a strictly electric Blues jam, which means you’ll need to stick very close to the bar 1-4-5 format in whichever grooves are specified by the singer picking the songs. You must sign in as an individual jammer; no special requests for lineup preferences will be honored. People will be grouped together by Gary by the order they sign up. Backline of drums, bass amp, two microphones and PA system will be provided. You’ll get three song sets, or less, depending on how long it takes to set up pedals, drum adjustments, etc.
Cost is $10 for the evening of entertainment and food, including hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken, salads and dessert. All proceeds will benefit our veterans – the proud men and women of the U.S. Military, both past and present. Call Mary for details at 732-489-0510.
